Rankings reflect a combined indoor/outdoor season, but with a heavier emphasis on outdoor competition. To be ranked, a team must compete in one or more dual meets (defined as a scored meet between four or fewer teams). Teams are ranked on wins and losses, marks, and strength and depth of dual meet schedule. Teams are rewarded for taking dual meet competition seriously.

The weekend ahead

The final weekend of the dual meet season is "rivalry weekend". Two meets, USC at UCLA and the "double dual" at Arizona, will be tape-delayed on the Pac-12 Networks.
