Just like with the power conferences in college basketball, there has been a lot of parity among the mid-majors. Although a few teams have breezed by their mid-major competition, a bunch have also struggled to solidify spots at the top of the standings.
This past week, Belmont fell back to earth with a loss to Murray State. Creighton and Wichita State also lost, falling into a three-way tie with Indiana State in the Missouri Valley. South Dakota State and North Dakota State, two of the leaders in the Summit League, each lost at Oakland.
Read on to see the complete mid-major rankings.
Note: For the purpose of this analysis, a mid-major is defined as any team that does not compete in the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Big East, SEC, Pac-12, Atlantic 10, Conference USA or Mountain West.
