KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Montana Western jumped up three spots to No. 19 on the latest NAIA Top 25 Coaches Poll, which was released today.

Montana Tech, meanwhile fell five to No. 25.

The moves come two days after the Bulldogs came from behind to beat the Orediggers 32-19 Saturday at Vigilante Field in Dillon.

Morningside (Iowa) remains in the top spot in the poll. Marian (Indiana) is No. 2, while Northwestern (Iowa) is up to No. 3.

Southern Oregon fell five spots to No. 7 after Saturday’s loss to Rocky Mountain College, which jumped up five spots to No. 21.

In all, five Frontier Conference teams are ranked. Eastern Oregon, which has the same 3-2 record as the Orediggers, is one spot above Tech at No. 24. Tech beat Eastern Oregon last month in Butte.
