Top Three Remain Same in Division II Top 25

Three Top 10 teams got upset this past weekend, but the Top 3 remain unchanged in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll with No. 1 Minnesota State, No. 2 West Georgia and No. 3 Northwest Missouri State. Thanks to then-No. 4 Pittsburg State’s (Kan.) loss to Washburn (Kan.), Ferris State (Mich.) and Delta State (Miss.) move up into the fourth and fifth spots, respectively.  Angelo State (Texas) climbs to No. 6 this week, which is their highest ever ranking in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Poll. The Rams were No. 8 last week, which equaled their previous best from September 5 and 12, 2000, the first year of the AFCA poll. Sioux Falls (S.D.) is also at their highest ranking when they jumped five spots to No. 7 this week. The Cougars made it to No. 10 on October 27, 2014, which was their highest ranking since making the switch from NAIA to Division II.

Grand Valley State (Mich.) and Ohio Dominican dropped out of the poll this week, making room for Michigan Tech and Midwestern State (Texas). The Huskies are 3-0 and ranked No. 21, while the Mustangs are also 3-0 and sitting at No. 23.
