Pittsburg State Cracks the Top 10 in Latest AFCA Coaches' Poll

Updated:

WACO, TEXAS– Three of the top four teams lost this past weekend, causing a shakeup in the AFCA Division II Coaches' Top 25 Poll. North Alabama moves up to the top spot this week after then-No. 1 Northwest Missouri State lost to new No. 8 Pittsburg State (Kan.), 38-35, in the Fall Classic at Arrowhead Stadium. This is the fourth time North Alabama has been ranked No. 1 in the Division II Coaches' Top 25 Poll, with their last No. 1 ranking occurring on November 2, 2009. Bloomsburg (Pa.) moves up to No. 2, followed by No. 3 Delta State (Miss.), No. 4 Nebraska-Kearney and No. 5 Washburn (Kan.). Nebraska-Kearney's No. 4 ranking is their highest ever in the AFCA Coaches' Poll. 

Shepherd (W.Va.) had the biggest fall, dropping 11 spots to No. 14 after its 28-14 loss to Concord (W.Va.). Valdosta State (Ga.) also fell out of the Top 5, falling to No. 13 after losing to Arkansas-Monticello, 23-9. Pittsburg State (Kan.) made the biggest jump in the poll this week, moving up seven spots to No. 8 after its victory over then-No. 1 Northwest Missouri State. The Bearcats don't have long to recover as they travel to No. 19 Central Missouri this week in the only Top 25 matchup of the AFCA Coaches' Poll.
