WIN’s October 2020 Preseason NCAA Division I TPI and Rankings

The following is an update of WIN Magazine’s 2020-21 preseason NCAA Division I national rankings. This includes WIN’s Tournament Power Index (TPI), which is an accumulation of a team’s potential NCAA tournament points that are associated with each team’s ranked wrestler’s individual rankings that are included in these preseason rankings.

WIN’s TPI point totals are broken down by the following individual rankings: 1st – 20 (16 AA points + 4 advancement points); 2nd – 16 (12+4); 3rd – 13.5 (10+3.5); 4th – 12.5 (9+3.5); 5th – 10 (7+3); 6th – 9 (6+3); 7th – 6.5 (4+2.5); 8th – 5.5 (3+2.5). Additional points for other rankings include: 9th/12th – 2; 13th/16th – 1.5; 17th-20th – 1. TPI points will be lower than the final actual NCAA tournament points because it does not include bonus points.

These rankings are subject to change as wrestlers finalize their weight classes for the 2020-21 season. Also true and redshirt freshmen are not ranked in WIN’s preseason rankings.
