LSU topped the rankings, while Texas A&M was second and Kansas was third. Arkansas rounded out the top five, while Michigan State, Indiana State, Michigan, Indiana and Princeton made up the rest of the top-10.
To be considered for the rankings, a team must compete in at least one dual meet during the indoor season, using T&FN's definition of a "dual meet" as a scored competition among four or fewer teams.
Men's preseason indoor rankings will be released on Wednesday, January 8. The next women's rankings will be released on Wednesday, January 15, and will recognize the top 20 teams.
