NCAA Division I Softball -- Iterative Strength Ratings

Last updated: Wed Jul 14 05:58:49 2021

Note: Strength of schedule rank is for games to date. Only teams who have played at least ten Division I games are listed. Ratings are updated daily around 6:30 Central Time.

Teams from conferences which are not playing non-conference games this year are not included in the rankings, as there is no way to compare them to teams from inter-connected conferences.
