Sioux Falls, SDSU Move Up in Polls
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The University of Sioux Falls football team has moved up four spots to No. 17 in this week’s AFCA Division II poll after a 54-41 win over Upper Iowa.
No other team from the Dakotas is ranked in either that poll or this week’s NAIA poll. Dakota Wesleyan dropped out of the NAIA poll after a 41-13 loss to Northwestern over the weekend.
North Dakota State University has moved up in both Football Championship Subdivision polls after a 23-17 weekend win over Southern Illinois.
The defending national champion Bison have moved from No. 3 to No. 2 in the coaches’ poll and have reclaimed the top spot in The Sports Network poll. Georgia Southern is No. 1 in the coaches’ poll and No. 2 in the TSN poll.
South Dakota State is No. 25 in the coaches’ poll and No. 21 in the TSN poll after not being ranked in either poll last week. The Jackrabbits beat Youngstown State 41-28 on Saturday.
