Reese and Jacoby Standings
Falcon fall sports point totals highest in a decade
Falcon Athletics and our more than 400 student-athletes represent the best of BGSU, both athletically and academically. As you’ve read in the previous article, our student-athletes continue to earn well-deserved recognition within the MAC and WCHA — as well as nationally — for their exceptional scholarship.
They also represent the very highest standards of NCAA Division I intercollegiate athletic competition across the 18 sports in which we compete. Our fall-sports Reese and Jacoby standings certainly bear out the strength of our teams as they compete for championships.
The Reese and Jacoby standings are an all-sports ranking of athletic departments within the Mid-American Conference. In each sport, teams receive a point total based on the final league standings (first place teams receive 13 points and last place teams receive 1 point). The women's all-sports standings are named after former MAC Commissioner Fred Jacoby and the men's all-sports standings are named after former MAC Commissioner David E. Reese.
BGSU Athletics’ total combined Reese and Jacoby points from fall 2018 adds up to 57.5, which is 11 points above our previous best in the past decade from the year before. Be sure to read the cover story (pp. 2-4) about how Falcon women’s sports are on the rise and how Men’s Cross Country (p. 5) has become a key contributor to this success.
