Samford Bulldogs (6-5)


Top five unchanged in STATS FCS Top 25

(STATS) - Top teams in the STATS FCS Top 25 have surged into the FCS playoffs with strong finishes to the regular season.

The five highest-ranked teams, led by unanimous No. 1 North Dakota State, went unchanged from last week in the new national media poll Sunday morning. In fact, the Bison (11-0), Kennesaw State (10-1), Weber State (9-2), Eastern Washington (9-2) and South Dakota State (8-2) carry at least a four-game winning streak into the playoffs.

North Dakota State, the No. 1 playoff seed, received all 155 first-place votes in the final regular-season poll. The Bison, who beat Southern Illinois 65-17 on Saturday to finish a perfect run through the Missouri Valley Football Conference, are seeking a record seventh FCS title.
