Orediggers move to No. 17

Montana Tech moved up three spots in the NAIA Football Coaches’ Top 25 poll, which was released Monday.

The move comes two days after the Orediggers beat Montana Western in a 30-24 double-overtime thriller at Vigilante Field in Dillon.

Tech is one of four Frontier Conference teams ranked in the poll. Eastern Oregon remained at No. 8, while Carroll College moved up one spot to No. 11. Rocky Mountain College fell three spots to No. 22.

Saint Xavier of Illinois is still No. 1.

Last week, the Orediggers earned a spot in the Top 25 for the first time since November 2007.
