New, comments

A win kept the Wildcats ranked for another week.

Matthew Gregory

Following a dominant 37-0 road win over Albany, Villanova maintained their place in both of the major FCS college football polls that were released on Monday afternoon. The Wildcats moved up 2 spots to #23 in the STATS Media Poll, and up 3 spots in the Coaches' Poll.

Jacksonville State and Coastal Carolina maintained their #1 rankings in the STATS and Coaches polls, respectively.

The CAA was led by James Madison (#4/3) and followed by Richmond (#11/12) and William & Mary (#17/16). New Hampshire dropped out after a loss at the weekend.
