As the season enters its final stretch, the contenders in college football are starting to emerge. Both Bethune-Cookman and Winston-Salem State saw their national poll rankings rise, while Tennessee State dropped several spots.

For its efforts, BCU moved up one spot, to no. 12 in the FCS Coaches poll. Tennessee State (7-2) fell three spots, dropping down to no. 24 after a 31-16 loss to second ranked Eastern Illinois.

The Rams moved to no. 13 after beating Livingstone 40-0 on Saturday, and remain the only HBCU in that poll. Both Tuskegee and Virginia State were among the teams receiving votes.
