Each year the folks at CBS Sports use a formula that they came up with years ago to try and determine which school had the best overall athletic season.

The University of Louisville’s athletic program came in at No. 7 in the annual CBS Best in College Sports rankings.

The CBS Sports Weighted Formula: Football is 2.5 times as much as the other sports, while men’s basketball is worth twice as many points. Teams that did not finish in the final AP Top 25 in football but played in a bowl were awarded 62.5 points (25 x 2.5). Teams that made the NIT, CBI or CIT were given 20 points (10 x 2), while WNIT teams received 10 points. For all titles settled via bracket, point totals were based upon how many teams participated. All champions in the other sports received 100 points for a national title.
