Eight Top 25 Losses Shuffle Up Division II Poll

Eight teams in last week’s Top 25 poll lost this past weekend, causing a shakeup in the lower half of the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll. Northwest Missouri State still sits No. 1, but lost six of their first-place votes to No. 2 Colorado State-Pueblo, who had a big win over Football Championship Subdivision member, Sam Houston State (Texas), 47-21. The rest of the Top 10 looks pretty much the same, with a couple of teams flip-flopping spots. The big change comes from No. 12 to No. 25, as six teams dropped out of the poll, and five new teams entered this week.
