The UCLA women's track and field team has been given a No. 5 ranking to open the indoor track season, according to Trackwire. Five athletes were ranked in the Dandy Dozen, with Chelsea Johnson the top-ranked Bruin at first in the pole vault. Jackie Nguyen ranks fifth in the pole vault, Candice Baucham (triple jump) and Dawn Harper (60m hurdles) both ranked third, while Kamaiya Warren ranked eighth in the shot put. The DMR and 4x400m teams were both ranked fourth.

Tennessee's women open the 2005 NCAA indoor track & field campaign at No. 1, although defending indoor titlist LSU remains in striking distance. The Vols take top billing led by long jumper Tianna Madison and half-miler Nicole Cook, and further bolstered by the sprint corps of Cleo Tyson, Courtney Champion and Toyin Olupona.

The Trackwire 25 projects a hypothetical score for the NCAA meet, factoring in injury reports and other variables supported by information gathered from coaches and NCAA-qualfying competitions across the country. This projection is generated by scoring the Dandy Dozen, a power ranking of the top 12 athletes and relay squads in each NCAA event.

The factors used to build the D12 include quantitative values that measure performances in past major competitions (such as conference championships, national championships and Olympic competition), durability and freedom from injuries, demonstrated ability to compete well in multiple rounds of competition, ability in other events, head-to-head competition with other top athletes, and personal or seasonal bests.
