Dawgs move up to No. 18, Diggers fall from poll

Montana Western moved up one spot to No. 18 in the latest NAIA Top 25 Football Coaches Poll, which was released today.

The move comes two days after the Bulldogs beat Carroll College 30-10 at Vigilante Field in Dillon. The victory, coupled with a Southern Oregon loss, gave the Bulldogs sole possession of first place in the Frontier Conference.

Montana Tech fell from the poll following Saturday’s 23-20 overtime loss to the College of Idaho. The Orediggers still received votes.

While the Bulldogs sit atop the Frontier standings, they are looking up at two conference foes below them.

Southern Oregon fell from No. 7 to No. 14, while Rocky Mountain College moved up one spot to No. 15. The Raiders and Battlin’ Bears each have two losses, while Western is 5-1. The Bulldogs also beat the Bears earlier this season in Dillon.

Eastern Oregon is No. 19. That is five spots better than last week.

Morningside (Iowa) remains in the top sot. Marian (Indiana) is No. 2.

This week’s Frontier Conference schedule sees Rocky take on Carroll College, the College of Idaho play Southern Oregon, Tech head to Eastern Oregon and Western travel to MSU-Northern.
