Top 10 Voting Process

ELO's unique algorithm - which blends a statistical calculation featuring customized variables - was chosen for its adaptability across a range of sports. 

ELO will be implemented for all fall team sports - women’s rugby, men’s and women’s soccer, and football - as well as men’s hockey. It will replace the previous coach voting system in women’s rugby and both soccer rankings, while being combined and equally weighted (50/50) with the existing media voting panels in men’s hockey and football.
