Sectional assignments are based on the Team Ranking System points earned in USBC Collegiate-sanctioned competition throughout the season.
Sectional Qualifier assignments are made to balance the field strength
with no more than four of the top 16 ranked teams based on the final TRS
standings in each. Sectional Qualifier fields are determined by taking
geographic distance, economics and field size into consideration.

The sectionals will consist of 32 Baker System games each day for a
total of 64 Baker games. The top four teams based on total pinfall in
each division following the completion of competition at each sectional
will advance to the 2005 Intercollegiate Bowling Championships.

In addition, these four locations also will host qualifying for the
2005 Collegiate Singles Championships on March 18. All participants will
bowl six games with total pinfall determining final standings. The top
four finishers in each division (men and women) at each IBC Sectional
Qualifier advance to the Collegiate Singles Championships in May at
Olympic Lanes in Milwaukee.
