Last Saturday’s 10-7 win over Central Missouri St. was enough to keep Northwest Missouri St. at #4 in this weeks NCAA Division II football poll. CMSU dropped five spots to #11 as a result of the loss. But the poll that determines their spot in the playoffs is of most concern to the two teams right now. In the Midwest Regional Poll, Northwest moved up from #2 to #1, while CMSU dropped from #1 to #3. The top four teams will advance to the D-II playoffs. In the NAIA poll, Evangel College of Springfield moved up one spot to #16. Missouri Valley College of Marshall moved up two spots to #22.
