A pair of upsets caused a reshuffle of the Top 10 in this week's AFCA Division III Coaches' Poll. Losses by No. 3 Mary Hardin-Baylor to Mississippi College and No. 10 Wabash to No. 22 Wittenberg opened the door for movement by several teams.
Mount Union and Wisconsin-Whitewater continue to hold down the top two spots as the Purple Raiders received 39 of 40 first place votes and the No. 2 Warhawks received the remaining No. 1 vote. Wheaton and Wesley move up one spot each to No. 3 and No. 4 while St. John's moves into the No. 5 spot this week. Central (Iowa), Washington & Jefferson, Linfield, Case Western and Monmouth (Ill.) round out the top 10.
Mississippi College vaults into the rankings at No. 20 after their upset win over Mary Hardin-Baylor.
