Bowie State Football Moves Up to No. 23 in AFCA Poll

WACO, Texas – Colorado School of Mines used a dominating performance to upset then-No. 9 Colorado State-Pueblo at home, 34-14. The victory snapped a 15-game home win streak for the ThunderWolves and it was the first time the Orediggers have won in Pueblo since 2009. With the win, Colorado School of Mines moves up three spots No. 14 in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll. Following Bowie State’s 42-14 home debut win against Alderson Broaddus on Saturday, the Bulldogs move up two spots to No. 23 overall.

Valdosta State (Ga.) remains in the top spot after a 44-27 victory over then-No. 20 West Alabama. Ferris State (Mich.), Minnesota State, Tarleton State (Texas) and Notre Dame (Ohio) round out the top five.

Colorado State-Pueblo doesn’t have long to lick their wounds after its loss to their conference rival. Despite falling 11 spots in the poll to No. 20, they have another Top 25 matchup in the ThunderBowl as they host No. 11 Texas A&M-Commerce. The 2017 NCAA Division II national champions are 2-0 under new head coach David Bailiff after a 45-27 win over Eastern New Mexico.

Saginaw Valley State (Mich.) is the only newcomer to this week’s poll, coming in at No. 25. The Cardinal are 3-0 after handing Michigan Tech a 23-7 loss. This is the first time Saginaw Valley State has been ranked in the AFCA Top 25 since December 23, 2013.
