Final NCAA regional ranking for 2017

The final Division III football regional rankings are out. 

Remember that regional rankings primarily take Division III games into account. Teams are listed with their Division III record only. For more information about the playoff format and how participants are determined, check out our FAQ, or listen to the opening portion of our most recent podcasts, linked below.

A plus sign signifies that the team also has a non-Division III win, while a minus sign signifies a non-Division III loss. Teams in bold qualified for the tournament.

How to use regional rankings: If you are an at-large candidate, you want to be sure you are the top at-large candidate in your region. That will ensure you get discussed by the national committee and have a chance to be put in the field.

There are 25 automatic bids, two Pool B bids (to split among the 18 eligible teams not in those 25 conferences) and five Pool C (true national at-large) bids. Selection Sunday is Nov. 12.

Being listed in these rankings is not a guarantee of selection to the playoffs. There is no guarantee an at-large team will be taken from each region.
