Little Movement as Top 10 Take Care of Business

After a relatively quiet weekend in the AFCA Division III Coaches' Poll, the Top 10 remains unchanged, with teams like No. 2 Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas) taking care of business. Besides some shuffling and the entrance of Concordia-Moorhead (Minn.) into the poll at No. 23, the rest of Top 25 looks remarkably similar as well, with No. 15 Pacific Lutheran (Wash.) having to fend off a ferocious comeback-bid from Wisconsin Eau Claire in a game that was decided in the final seconds. The win sets up one of the biggest games of the approaching weekend, as the undefeated Lutes head into McMinnville, Ore., to face off against the undefeated No. 3 Linfield Wildcats.
