Kentucky is at the top of the rankings, followed by TCU, WVU, Nebraska and Akron who will be joined by Murray State, Navy and Air Force at the 2020 NCAA rifle championship in Lexington, KY, next month.
No. 1 Kentucky, No. 2 TCU, No. 3 WVU, No. 4 Nebraska and No. 5 Akron dominate the latest NCAA rankings.
The second half of the season has seen Kentucky rise, thanks in part to a slew of victories on the road this month.
About a decade ago, college rifle clubs without an NCAA ranking had only their own intramural matches to compete in, with no national end-of-year recognition. This changed when the NRA debuted its NRA Intercollegiate Club Championship in April of 2010 at Purdue University.
Back and forth for the top rifle team ranking has been the name of the game nearly all season for the WVU Mountaineers and the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs. The two squads have swapped spots several times this season thus far.
The weekly CRCA rankings has Kentucky as the top rifle school in the country.
