This week’s poll

1 Valdosta St. 9-0 9-0
2 West Ga. 10-0 10-10
3 Lenoir-Rhyne 9-1 9-1
4 Bowie St. 7-1 8-1
5 West Ala. 7-3 7-3
6 Florida Tech 7-3 7-3
7 Albany St. (GA) 7-3 7-3
8 Wingate 7-3 7-3
9 Va. Union 7-2 7-2
10 Fayetteville St. 6-2 6-2


Three of the 10 teams in the top ten hail from the CIAA. Two of them, Bowie State and Fayetteville State, will meet on Saturday in the CIAA title game. The third team, Virginia Union, is back a week after dropping from the top 10. It came up with a solid 46-19 win over rival Virginia State on Saturday. It will have a chance to bolster its playoff resume on Thursday when it takes on Johnson C. Smith in a game postponed due to Hurricane Florence.

The SIAC’s best, and only hope for a playoff bid is in the hands of Albany State. Its opponent in the SIAC title game, Miles, is not among the top 10.
