Notre Dame Stands Fifth In 2010 NCSA Division I Collegiate Power Rankings

Oct. 7, 2010

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame ranks among the top five NCAA Division I institutions in the country in combining athletic and academic achievement, according to the annual rankings released Monday by the National Collegiate Scouting Association in Chicago.

Notre Dame ranked fifth among NCAA Division I universities and 13th overall in the annual NCSA Collegiate Power Rankings, trailing only Stanford, Princeton, Duke and Harvard in the Division I standings.

The NCSA Collegiate Power Rankings assess the academic and athletics standards of all NCAA and NAIA athletic programs across the country. Rankings are calculated for each college and university at the NCAA Division I, II and III levels by averaging the academic rankings from U.S. News & World Report, the strength of the athletic departments by the NACDA Directors' Cup ranking, plus each school's student-athlete graduation rate.

In the 2010 ratings, Notre Dame finished 27th in athletics, 20th in academic rank and 30th in NCAA graduation rank, for an average 25.66 power ranking.

This marks the sixth straight year Notre Dame has finished fifth or better in the NCSA rankings. Here are standings from those six years:

2010: 1. Stanford 9.33, 2. Princeton 12.33, 3. Duke 19.0, 4. Harvard 22.66, 5. Notre Dame 25.66.
