Montana State moves up, Montana down in FCS football polls; Carroll holds at 2nd in NAIA


The FCS football polls were rearranged a bit Monday after a weekend that saw five teams of the top teams lose, including three-time defending champion North Dakota State.

New Hampshire is the new No. 1 in The Sports Network poll while Coastal Carolina got the nod in the coaches' poll.

Eastern Washington remains fifth in both polls after a 36-26 win over Montana that knocked the Grizzlies down to 15th in the coaches' poll and 16th in the media poll.

Montana State moved up three spots in both polls, to 12th in the Sports Network poll and 13th in the media poll after a 29-22 win over Portland State.

In the NAIA, Carroll holds onto its second-place ranking while Southern Oregon moves up a spot to fourth going into the final game of the regular season.
