MRGC Honors Aplenty for No. 11 Broncos
March 14, 2017

National Rankings

The Road To Nationals team rankings for week 10 of the 2017 season were announced on Monday and the Broncos dropped one spot to No. 11 despite improving their RQS to 196.835 after a record-breaking victory over Denver where Boise State posted a 197.675 – the highest team score in school history.

The slight drop was caused by Michigan jumping two spots from No. 11 to No. 9 this week, pushing the Broncos back a spot.

A team's RQS is calculated by first taking the six best team scores from the regular season, but three of the scores must come from away meets. The last step is eliminating the highest score from the six and averaging the remaining five scores.

The Broncos have been ranked in the top 12 in seven of 10 weeks so far this season, with their highest ranking (No. 7) coming on Feb. 13.

RANKING/TEAM TEAM RQS
1. Oklahoma 198.000
2. LSU 197.785
3. UCLA 197.500
4. Florida 197.495
5. Utah 197.355
6. Alabama 197.285
7. Denver 197.040
8. Georgia 197.005
9. Michigan 196.880
10. Oregon State  196.875
11. Boise State 196.835
12. Kentucky 196.750
