- ↑ The result of the playoff series with Wranglers' result first no matter of the outcome, followed by opposite team in parenthesis.
- ↑ Due to the Fresno Falcons folding during the 2008-09 season, the Wranglers and the Ontario Reign played an unbalanced schedule of 73 games compared to the 72 that the Bakersfield Condors and Stockton Thunder played which is the league's standard. Due to the unbalanced schedule, the Pacific Division standings would be based on Winning percentage instead of points earned. The final standings were: 1-Ontario (.562), 2-Las Vegas (.521), 3-Bakersfield (.514), 4-Stockton (.493).
