Below you will find the 38 men that we are projecting will garner at-large selection to the 2016 NCAA Cross Country Championships. We’ve also listed their track PRs so you can see what type of accomplishments it takes to make it.

The top 4 men in each region not on teams qualifying for NCAAs make the meet assuming they are in the top 25 in the region, plus two extra at-large selections also make it (the  at-large picks are shown in red below). There weren’t four men at-large selections in the top 25 of the Mountain Region so there ended up being three at-large selections.

NOTE: We are aware that Flotrack has released their own team projections and ours differs significantly from theirs as explained here. If different at-large teams get in, then it will impact the list below. Update: For the 2nd year in a row, Flotrack has admitted their initial predictions were wrong and yet again they are now agreeing with us. MB: Did Flotrack screw up again and give out the wrong NCAA predictions?

But please remember these projections are UNOFFICIAL. The official qualifiers will be posted on NCAA.com by 3 p.m. ET on Saturday, November 12.
