They are followed by No. 2 Northwest Missouri State, which received four first-place votes, No. 3 Colorado State-Pueblo and No. 4 Missouri Western State, also each earned a first-place nod. Henderson State rounds out the top five.

Then-No. 19 Chadron State and then-No. 24 Grand Valley State both lost and fell out of the top 25, making room for No. 23 Newberry and No. 25 St. Cloud State to enter the poll. This is Newberry’s first ranking since Sept. 24, 2012, when they were ranked No. 24, while St. Cloud State re-enters after a one-week layoff.
