Standings as of 2019-09-24

College Dodgeball has returned. In the 2020 Season, we have 1 technical upset in 11 ranked matches (90.91% success rate) across the first event.

The Gonzalez System is a computer ranking model similar to Elo and is a rating exchange system based on research performed by World Rugby. It has been adapted by the NCDA to the demands of College Dodgeball, but can be tuned and customized endlessly to incorporate accurate data. It has been used to help determine seeds for the Nationals bracket since Nationals 2014, and was used exclusively for the Nationals 2017, 2018, and 2019 bracket.
