Few Changes in AFCA Division II Coaches' Poll

There was not much change in the AFCA Division II Coaches Top 25 Poll this week as most of the teams won their contests which resulted in little movement in the poll. Northwest Missouri State continues its grip on the No. 1 spot with 28 first place votes after a dominating 70-17 win over Fort Hays State. North Alabama and Shepherd (W.Va.) still sit in second and third, respectively, but Valdosta State (Ga.) jumps Bloomsburg (Pa.) for the No. 4 spot.

Four teams fell out of the poll this week, making way for three new teams to enter the Top 25. Midwestern State (Texas) makes its first appearance in the poll this year at No. 22 after upsetting then-No. 16 Texas A&M-Kingsville, 44-38, dropping the Javelinas out of the Top 25. Hillsdale (Mich.) moves back into the poll after a three-week layoff at No. 24, while Ouachita Baptist (Ark.) also makes its first appearance in the poll this year at No. 25. The Tigers are 3-0 after a 39-33 victory over Texas A&M-Commerce.
