Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

masterful 35-6 victory over the University of Pennsylvania did nothing to impress the FCS Pollsters in the newest poll released by the Sports Network as Villanova slipped a spot to #20.

Towson is the highest-ranked CAA program at #3, with three other CAA teams included for five total. The other CAA representatives are New Hampshire (19), Maine (23), and Delaware (24).

Overall, North Dakota State remains a hold on the #1 spot as they defeated [previously #6] South Dakota St., 20-0.
