The highest scoring Auburn team was women's cross country at 992. Women's basketball scored 990, baseball 943 and football 950.

Alabama had 12 sports score over the 980 mark. Men's and women's golf and women's tennis each scored 1,000. Men's basketball scored a 995, with the women's team coming in at 977 and football at 978.

The APR was established 10 years ago by the NCAA to regulate eligibility, retention and graduation rates of student-athletes in all Division I sports.
