Bemidji State moves up a spot to highest ranking in AFCA Poll at No. 9

The Bemidji State University Football team moved up a spot to No. 9 in the latest American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Top 25 that was released Monday. This is the highest ranking for the Beavers in program history.

BSU opened the season ranked No. 11 and remained there through the first two weeks. After moving to No. 10 last week, the Beavers went up another spot this week after the 36-10 win over Winona State and previous No. 9 Angelo State lost on the road at Central Washington.

Ferris State holds as the top team, followed by Colorado School of Mines and Pittsburg State in the top three. All the teams inside the top 10 from last week remained the same except for Harding entering as No. 10. Super Region 4 now has three teams ranked inside the top 10 with Colorado School of Mines (second), Minnesota State (fifth) and Bemidji State (ninth). Angelo State falls from No. 9 to No. 22.

The Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference has two other teams in the poll with Minnesota Duluth entering at No. 23 and Augustana receiving votes with 30.

Bemidji State, off to a 3-0 start, travel to Bismarck, N.D. this week to play at UMary with kickoff set for 2 p.m.
