Dual Meet Rankings

Track & Field News used to do these, but gave it up at least a decade ago. With the resurgence of the college dual meet, it's time to get it rolling again.

Ranking rules...
1) A team cannot be ranked unless they have beaten at least one Division I team in a scored meet of four or fewer teams.
2) Split squad results don't count.
3) Rankings are a product both of how good a team is perceived to be, and how good their defeated opponents are perceived to be.
4) Head-to-head results are most meaningful.
5) While the rankings are for a combined indoor-outdoor season, outdoor results are considered more important than indoor ones.

Week one rankings...
