AGS Poll: Week 10 Top 25 Results

After a relatively quiet week 9 the volatility returned to the AGS Poll in week 10 as 8 top 25 team took losses, 7 of which to teams ranked below them or not at all. North Dakota State remained the unanimous #1 team and sliding in behind them at #2 was UC Davis setting yet another all-time record high ranking in the AGS Poll. There followed by Kennesaw State and Weber State at #3 and #4, respectively, and Eastern Washington climbed back into the top 5 coming in at #5.

The high risers on the week were led by some teams that have been slowly climbing the rankings all year. Colgate, Princeton, and Idaho State all took advantage of some losses in front of them to move up 3 spots each to #9, #12, and #14, respectively. Maine used an upset over CAA rival Towson to move up 9 spots to #13. Northern Iowa moved up 6 spots to #18 after taking down Illinois State. East Tennessee State moved up 5 spots to #20 after another close win moved them to 8-2 on the year. Southeast Missouri State made their first appearance in the AGS Top 25 since 2014 moving up 6 spots to #21. Western Illinois also moved up 6 spots to get back into the top 25 at #23 after a 4 week absence. North Carolina A&T toggled back into the top 25 again this week moving up 2 spots to #24.

James Madison led the group of teams moving in the opposite direction after they dropped 8 spots down to #10 after being stunned by unranked New Hampshire. Fellow CAA conference-mate Towson dropped 4 spots to #15 after their aforementioned loss to Maine. Wofford took a 7 spot dip after getting upended by SOCON rival Samford. McNeese nearly dropped out of the top 25 taking a 9 spot drop to cling on to #25 after losing for the 2nd time in 3 games. After their loss to Lamar last Saturday Central Arkansas dropped out of the top 25 for the first time since early 2016 ending a 34 week streak in the top 25. Illinois State and North Dakota also dropped out of the top 25 after sustaining losses last Saturday.

In terms of conference representation the CAA once again led the way placing 6 teams into the top 25. They were followed by Big Sky and MVFC who each had 4 and then the Ivy League, OVC, SOCON, and Southland who each had 2 teams in the top 25. There were 10 conferences represented in the top 25 alone this week.
