NCAA Men's DI Composite: Duke In Charge

Impressive in recent showings against top competition, Duke is No. 1 in the NCAA composite this week, ahead of Loyola. (Peyton Williams)

In the human world, the consensus is that Loyola is the No. 1 team in the land. But the RPI and LaxPower computer rankings (and Quint Kessenich) see things far differently, landing Duke at No. 1 and Loyola far down the table, handing Duke the composite ranking top spot this week. Loyola, which leads the Lacrosse Magazine, USILA, Media and Eamon McAnaney Top 20, is second after tying with Duke atop the composite a week ago. Denver and Syracuse come in in the 3-4 spot this week, while Johns Hopkins and Maryland come in knotted for No. 5.

Each week, we will publish an aggregate of the rankings from Lacrosse Magazine, ESPN broadcasters Eamon McAnaney and Quint Kessenich, the Warrior media poll, the USILA coaches poll, the NCAA's RPI numbers and the LaxPower computer rankings. Click here for last week's composite ranks.
