WAC Tie-breaking Procedures

The following procedures are to be used to determine seeding for a Conference tournament or to establish the automatic qualifier to an NCAA Championship subject to any sport regulation tie-breakers.

[1]    Ties for all places in the standings (between two teams or three or more teams) which can be broken based upon head-to-head competition are broken before the implementation of further tie-breaking procedures.

[2]    If more than two teams are tied, the three or more tie-breaking procedures shall be implemented.  If only two teams are tied, the two-team tie-breaking procedures shall be implemented.

[3]    In the case of ties for more than one place, the first tie broken is that of the highest place (i.e., first place, second place, etc.) and continue downward through the standings.

[4]    If the tie is for first place and cannot be broken by a head-to-head results, compare the tied teams’ winning percentage against the next highest finishing team and continue through the standings.  The team with the best winning percentage against the next highest-finishing team or group of tied teams advances.  If the tie is for any position other than first place, the comparison shall begin at the top of the standings.

[5]    Once a tied team has been placed in a position/seed, that team shall be included in all further comparisons of other tied teams from the position/seed in which it has been placed.

b.    Tie-Breaking Procedures
