AGS Poll: Week 2 Top 25 Results

Week 2 was a little less tumultuous across the FCS landscape and let us all catch our breath a bit after a chaotic first couple poll releases this fall. There was a change at the top though as Sam Houston inched in front of South Dakota State for the #1 spot. They were followed by James Madison, Montana, and North Dakota State rounding out the top 5 in that order.

There were some bigger movers further down the rankings starting with Missouri State who moved up 5 spots to #16 after an impressive victory over Central Arkansas. Jacksonville State also moved up 5 spots to #18 after a thrilling last second victory over the ACC’s Florida State. New Hampshire and Furman made their 2021 fall debut in the AGS top 25 taking spots #24 and #25, respectively.

Teams heading in the opposite direction were led by Central Arkansas who dropped 5 spots to #21 after their aforementioned loss to Missouri State. VMI tumbled 8 spots to #23 after a lopsided loss to FBS Kent State. Holy Cross and Murray State dropped out of the top 25 this week.

As a conference the MVFC led the way putting 6 teams into the top 25. They were followed by the Big Sky and CAA with 5 each and the AQ7 and SOCON with 3 each in the top 25. 9 conferences (counting the ASUN and WAC separately) put at least one team into the top 25 this week.
