This week I have a special post recognizing the power conference teams in the form of Power Rankings, as well as recognizing the non-power conference teams in the form of the Mid Major Top 25. We are just over half way through the season, so a combined post was needed to help us understand what things will look like come March (Check out Bracketology tomorrow).

*WCC not included in Mid Major Top 25*
