AGS Poll: Top 25 Week 11 Results

With less than a week until Selection Sunday we’re getting down to the judgement day for many teams in the AGS rankings and although week 11 went to plan for the most part there’s still potential for a big shakeup in these rankings next week. As they have been all season James Madison is ranked #1 getting all but one of the 79 first place votes. However, there was some shuffling amongst the rest of the top 5 as North Dakota State and Jacksonville State swapped spots moving NDSU back to #2 and JSU down to #4. Central Arkansas and South Dakota State maintained their positions at #3 and #5, respectively, to round out the top 5.

There wasn’t much for big movers up this week as a number of teams moved up 1-3 spots due to teams falling in front of them. The lone exception was New Hampshire who rose 7 spots into the top 25 at #20 after their upset win over Elon. Kennesaw State also made their way into the 25 for the first time this year moving up 2 spots to #24 following their dismantling of Charleston Southern.

Elon and South Dakota were among the biggest fallers of the week each dropping 5 spots to #12 and #15, respectively, after losses to UNH and NDSU. Western Carolina and Illinois State each dropped out of the top 25 after sustaining losses to Mercer and SDSU.

The Big Sky, CAA, and MVFC led the way in terms of representation placing 5 teams each into the top 25. They were followed by the SOCON and the Southland with 3 each, and the Big South with 2 teams in the top 25.
