New, 7 comments

No movement in top twelve spots.

New Hampshire remains the top program in FCS in the newest media poll after the Wildcats defeated Delaware, 43-14 on Saturday.

Following 'Nova's 48-31 victory over Albany, that led to the "Handoff Controversy" of letting a fourth-year walk-on get carries in the last minute of a game on Senior Night, Andy Talley's squad holds at the #6 spot.

Second ranked Coastal Carolina, #3 Jacksonville State, and #4 North Dakota State all won over the weekend. Fifth ranked Eastern Washington was idle and was the lone possibility for Villanova to rise in the rankings.

The CAA features five total teams in the poll. In addition to UNH and 'Nova, James Madison (#17), Richmond (#21), and William & Mary (#22) are all in the Top 25.

Villanova's regular season ends on Saturday as they head to Newark to face the Delaware Blue Hens.
