Game of the Week - West Texas A&M at Midwestern State

Teams on the ropes - ENMU has been eliminated from postseason contention. ACU, facing TAMK and ASU could be in the same boat by week's end. TSU, with no room to spare has WTAM on Saturday. SOSU and ECU, with games vs. UCO and NSU, could be done by weeks end. Cameron needs a split to keep pace with NSU (assuming NSU wins as expected).

Game(s) of the Week - UCO at SOSU, TAMK at ACU, ACU at ASU

Teams on the ropes - CU, ENMU, ECU likely done after this week. MSU, SWO, TWU should still be alive, but barely. TAMK and TSU in fight for #4 seed in South, with ASU just ahead #3. ACU could either solidify 2nd place in South or fall back into fight for third and fourth spot. NSU should keep margin over TWU/SWO, while TAMC should maintain spot with chance to move up if UCO beats SOSU.

I appreciate you doing the rankings but I wonder why ACU's women's team is ranked behind Commerce's? ACU beat them by 9 points head to head, and since then ACU has gone 7-3 while Commerce has gone 7-4. What gives?

If ACU sweeps this week, look for them to move up into the top 4.

We already talked about this earlier in the season. Every single team could have a situation like that with every other team in the conference. You can't just simply look at head to head. They play too many games and too many other things come into play.
