One week after falling five spots following a loss to Northern Iowa, South Dakota State is staying put in this week's STATS FCS Top 25.

The Jackrabbits are seventh for the second week in a row after a 38-28 win at then-number-11 Illinois State, last Saturday (October 27).

In all, the Missouri Valley Football Conference has just three teams in the Top 25 this week, as Northern Iowa dropped out following a loss at Western Illinois.

North Dakota State is once again a unanimous number-one. Illinois State is down two spots to 13th after the loss to SDSU.
