Orediggers stay at No. 13

Montana Tech’s football team enters its week off still ranked No. 13.

The latest version of the NAIA Football Coaches’ Top 25 Poll  was released Monday afternoon, and there was no change in the top 15.

The Orediggers have been ranked in all five polls during the season. After being unranked in the preseason poll, Tech debuted on the poll at No. 20 on Sept. 10, two days after beating Carroll College for the first time in eight years.

The Orediggers moved to No. 17 and No. 16 before jumping to No. 13 last week. Tech is 5-1 after winning its fifth straight game on Saturday. The Orediggers pounded Dickinson State 42-6.

Carroll remained at No. 8, while Eastern Oregon fell off the poll altogether. Southern Oregon received votes and just missed a top 25 ranking.
