It's still a Missouri Valley logjam at the top of the FCS Football rankings.

Once again, North Dakota State and South Dakota State are one-two in the week seven STATS FCS Top 25, with the Bison receiving all 160 first-place votes.

The Jackrabbits are number-two for the second straight week after a 36-7 win over Youngstown State last Saturday (October 13).

South Dakota, on the heels of a 42-28 loss at home to Northern Iowa, drops out of the poll this week. The Coyotes are ninth among the teams also receiving votes this week.

UNI, on the strength of a road win against the then-24th ranked USD last week, enters the Top 25 at number-25.

In all, the Missouri Valley Football Conference has four teams in the Top 25 this week. Illinois State is up four spots to number-12.
