New Hampshire ranked 41st overall, which was sixth among non-FBS schools after reaching the NCAA field hockey and volleyball championships this past fall as well as advancing to the Division I Football semifinals for the first time in school history.

UMBC was 79th after earning 75 points due to appearances in the men's and women's soccer NCAA tournaments. The Retrievers became the first America East program to receive a first-round bye in the men's tournament. The second-round appearance was America East's ninth in the last 12 years.
