AFCA DIII Coaches' Top 25 Poll

Losses by two previously ranked teams opened the door for two schools to move into this week’s AFCA Division III Coaches’ Poll. Illinois Wesleyan and Dubuque (Iowa) join this week’s poll at No. 22 and No. 24, respectively. This is the first time the Dubuque Spartans have been ranked in the history of the AFCA Division III Coaches’ Poll.

The top five are unchanged this week. Wisconsin-Whitewater remains No. 1 this week with 39 first place votes, followed by Mount Union (Ohio), which received the remaining three first place votes. St. Thomas (Minn.), Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas) and Bethel (Minn.) round out the top five.
