This list includes team records and movement from the last edition of these power rankings, which was on Friday, November 11th, 2016. Teams that just entered the top 25 will be denoted as “NEW” along with their movement assuming they were ranked #26 before they moved. If a team that is new is the biggest “Up” mover, the word “NEW” will be placed next to the team’s name when they are listed as the biggest “Up” mover. Teams that dropped out of the top 25 will have their drop movement recognized assuming that they dropped from their previous ranking to rank #26. If a team that dropped out is the biggest “Down” mover, the word “OUT” will be placed next to the team’s name when they are listed as the biggest “down” mover.
