SCSU still getting votes in AFCA poll

The St. Cloud State football team is still receiving points (three) in this week’s AFCA Division II Coaches Poll. It’s the second straight week that the Huskies have received votes. A win over lowly Minnesota-Crookston, however, won’t win you any extra points, though.

Minnesota-Duluth is ranked ninth this week and MSU-Mankato is 10th. The University of Sioux Falls fell out of the Top 25 after losing a close one at Winona State Saturday.

Here’s the complete poll:
