Cougars Ranked 15th in Directors' Cup

PROVO -- The BYU athletics program is ranked 15th in the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics annual Directors' Cup.



BYU is the top Mountain West Conference school as well as the top-ranked non-BCS school in the Director's Cup standings. The Cougars proved to be a national powerhouse after all of their fall sports teams made it to their respective NCAA tournaments and finished ranked in the national standings.



"We've had a great start to our season," said BYU Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe. "We had a good fall with all five of our teams earning points. We're looking forward to continued success with the teams that are competing right now."



Finishing the season with an 11-2 record and ranked No. 15 nationally, the football team was able to show its strength after an impressive 38-8 win over the Oregon Ducks in the Pioneer PureVision Las Vegas Bowl. Men's and women's cross country, women's soccer and women's volleyball also all added points to get to the 15th place ranking.



The Sports Academy Directors' Cup is the only all-sports competition that rates the country's best overall collegiate athletics programs. Points are awarded to each school based on each institution's finish in up to 20 sports -- 10 women's and 10 men's.
