The Capital One Cup is awarded annually to each of the top men's and women's Division I college athletics programs in the country. Points toward the Capital One Cup are earned and tracked throughout the year based on final standings of NCAA Division I Championships and final official coaches’ polls. One winning men’s and one winning women's program will be crowned after the completion of the final NCAA spring championships and each winning athletic program will receive the Capital One Cup and $200,000 to fund student-athlete graduate-level scholarships.
After a very competitive winter season, the Capital One Cup official winter standings have been tabulated. The Syracuse men's teams still have their work cut out for them but the women are making some serious headway.
Syracuse is currently tied for 32nd in the Capital One Cup women’s standings (out of 110) as a result of its finish in the final coaches’ poll in cross country and field hockey. If the women's lacrosse team and softball teams are able to rack up some points, the Orange could make a decent run in the overall standings.
