Strength of Schedule for 2013

Glossary:

SoS -- The strength of schedule, measured as the average ISR of the team's opponents.
Rank -- The ordinal ranking within that category.
SD -- The standard deviation of the opponents' ISR's.
All -- All games.
Non-conf -- Games against opponents not in the team's conference.
Intended -- ISR's used are from the previous season, showing the difficulty of the schedule that the team intended to play.

Note: This list is the pre-season intended strength ratings. This list will not be updated during the season. For season-to-date SoS rankings, see the current ISR rankings.
