JSU in top 20 of both polls

Jacksonville State's 28-10 win at Austin Peay vaulted the Gamecocks into the top 20 of The Sports Network media poll and the top 15 in the coaches poll.

The Gamecocks, 22nd last week, jumped up to No. 17 in the TSN poll. They jumped to No. 15 -- from 20th -- in the FCS Coaches Poll.

It marks the tenth straight week the Gamecocks have been ranked, the most consecutive weeks ranked in the Top 25 in the school’s Division I history.

Richmond remained No. 1 in the both polls, followed by Montana, Southern Illinois and Villanova -- in both polls. The Spiders picked up all 28 first-place votes among the coaches, while the top four, No. 7 Appalachian State and No. 10 South Carolina State also received first-place votes among the media.

Eastern Illinois, which handed Jax State its only I-AA loss this year, was No. 14 in the TSN poll, No. 13 in the coaches poll.
