UWG Makes First Appearance in Division II Poll Since 2001

It only took 13-plus years, but West Georiga reappears in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll for the first time since the final poll of 2001. The Wolves are 4-0 and ranked No. 24 this week as they prepare to face No. 22 West Alabama in a key Gulf South Conference game. Valdosta State (Ga.) and Findlay (Ohio) fell out of the poll this week to make room for West Georgia and Michigan Tech, who makes its first appearance in the poll since October 15, 2012. The Huskies are ranked No. 23 with a 4-0 mark in 2014.

The Top 7 teams remain the same this week with Northwest Missouri State still No. 1, followed by Colorado State-Pueblo, Minnesota State-Mankato, Minnesota-Duluth, North Alabama, Lenoir-Rhyne (N.C.) and Henderson State (Ark.). Pittsburg State (Kan.) fell out of the Top 10 after losing to Fort Hays State (Kan.), 7-6. The Gorillas dropped 11 spots to No. 19.
