Top Ten Unchanged in AFCA Division II Coaches' Poll

The Top 10 teams in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll all won this past weekend and kept their same rankings. Northwest Missouri State still sits No. 1 with 29 first-place votes, followed by Colorado State-Pueblo, Minnesota State-Mankato, Minnesota-Duluth and North Alabama rounding out the Top 5. Tarleton State (Texas) and St. Cloud State (Minn.) fell out of the poll this week, allowing Sioux Falls (S.D.) and Findlay (Ohio) to jump in at No. 24 and No. 25, respectively. This is Findlay’s first Top 25 ranking since October 12, 2009 when the Oilers were ranked No. 18.

There are only two Top 25 matchups this week as No. 4 Minnesota-Duluth travels to No. 20 Winona State (Minn.) and No. 5 North Alabama plays host to No. 21 Valdosta State (Ga.).
