We have no biases, quotas, or constituencies. We go where the data takes us.

The nation’s most comprehensive college basketball and soccer ranking service, BennettRank, announces the immediate release of rankings for the upcoming 2014 season. Pre-season rankings for all 2,200 D1, D2 and D3 men’s and women’s college soccer teams are available online at

Designed to provide the highest Performance-based Prediction™ for head-to-head play, BennettRank is 100% computer model-driven and derived from the analysis of over 35,000 games played during the 2013 season.

Delivering a revolutionary improvement over traditional rankings, BennettRank’s proprietary algorithms weigh each team’s historical performance directly related to all other teams in their individual divisions and conferences. Throughout the season, visit BennettRank each week as rankings will be updated and posted each Monday morning.

“We have no biases, quotas, or constituencies,” Gregg Bennett, CEO of BennettRank said. “We go where the data takes us.”

Many other ranking systems rely on subjective inputs. Bennett Rankings are modeled to be the best predictor of who would win if two teams played today.

“Unlike others, we are immune from the inherent biases of the existing subjective polls by coaches and writers,” he said. “They can’t possibly see all games and thus are influenced by what they read and hear, not necessarily by what teams actually do on the court.”

An analytic approach to rankings means that BennettRank can update the rankings of all teams every week. Bennett believes this is a superior way to assess seasonal performance.

“Every team will now know where they stand vis-à-vis others nationally, in their conference and in their region, whether they are ranked in the top 25 of the major polls or not,” he said.
