Arizona State, with an 11-0-0 record, is the only undefeated team left in the country. The Sun Devils will put their #1 ranking and 26-game winning streak over arch-rival Arizona to the test this weekend at the Madhouse on Main Street in Tucson, AZ. #2 Ohio University, which held the top spot the last 4 weeks and received 17 first-place votes, dropped its first game of the year on the road at Liberty University, though the Bobcats did manage to split the tightly contested series with a win on Friday.

    #3 Adrian and #4 Minot State stood pat this week, while Robert Morris Illinois achieved its highest ranking in school history, jumping up a couple of spots and coming in at #5. The Eagles now sport a 9-1-1 record on the season. The Oklahoma Sooners remained in the #6 spot, while the Oakland Golden Grizzlies tumbled two spots and came in at #7.
