Orediggers jump to No. 13

Montana Tech moved up three spots to No. 13 in the NAIA Football Coaches’ Top 25 Poll.

The latest poll was released Monday, two days after the Orediggers beat Southern Oregon in a 48-45 double-overtime thriller at Alumni Coliseum. Montana Tech (4-1) has won four straight games, and the Orediggers have been ranked in the top 20 four weeks in a row.

Before this season, the Orediggers hadn’t been ranked that high since November 2007.

Marian of Indian is ranked No. 1. Carroll College stayed at No. 8 after a lopsided win at Dickenson State. Eastern Oregon fell 10 spots to No. 24.
