  1. Strength of schedule is definitely a consideration with our poll voters and that is a part of the info we provide them from our various analytical services. In our latest info provided to voters, Xavier’s SOS was ranked anywhere from 7th-9th toughest out of the 36 teams that make up our “small school” division. The RRAC, as a conference, was ranked 6th out of the 20 NAIA conferences.

  2. Xavier strength of schedule should be looked at in your rankings. Look at their wins in the last 3 weeks. They have won 2 out of three series in their conference. The wins were against the 2nd rank and fourth ranked teams in their conference and they played a very close games against the number 1 team in the nation. They are [laying in one of the top conferences in the NAIA division. They are playing their best ball at this time.
