The following factors have been added to this season’s formula, as these factors were specifically mentioned by the committee after last season’s selections:
- An internal team quality ranking system, which takes into account margin of victory and schedule strength.
- RPI Top 50 Non-Conference Wins
- RPI Top 50 Road/Neutral Wins
- RPI Top 100 Road/Neutral Wins
- RPI 200+ Losses
In addition, though unstated, Conference RPI continues to play a big part in which teams get selected. Additional weighting has been given to Conference RPI in this season’s formula.
