This list includes each team’s record as well as their Rating Percentage Index (RPI) using the standings method and movement from last week’s rankings. 

RPI using the standings method is calculated by taking 25% of each team’s winning percentage, 50% of the winning percentage of the opponents of each team, and 25% of the winning percentage of the opponents of the opponents of each team.

NOTE: These RPI numbers are rounded to the thousandths place. In the case of a tie (to the billionths place), the team with the higher winning percentage gets the tiebreaker.
