Dakota Wesleyan Falls Out of NAIA Football Poll, NDSU Falls to No. 4 FCS Polls
MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) – Dakota Wesleyan has fallen out of the NAIA football coaches’ poll after getting blown out by Morningside of Iowa over the weekend.
The Tigers had been ranked No. 19 before the 63-7 loss to Morningside, which remains at No. 4 this week. Marian of Indiana remains atop the poll.

No teams in the Dakotas are ranked in this week’s poll.
Meanwhile, North Dakota State University has fallen to No. 4 in both Football Championship Subdivision polls after a loss to Indiana State over the weekend.

Eastern Washington moves to No. 1 in both polls, followed by James Madison, Georgia Southern, NDSU and Montana State.
South Dakota State received votes in the coaches’ poll and is ranked No. 20 in The Sports Network poll, after a 31-10 win over Western Illinois on Saturday.
