KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Montana Western has moved up three spots, Eastern Oregon has dropped eight spots and College of Idaho is re-entering the poll in the latest edition of the NAIA Football FirstDown Playbook Top 25 poll.

Montana Western (3-1, 4-1) moved up three spots and is now ranked 20th. Eastern Oregon (3-1, 3-1) dropped seven spots after suffering their first loss of the season, a 24-7 loss at home to College of Idaho. The Mountaineers are now ranked 18th.

College of Idaho (3-1, 3-1) is back in the top 25, re-entering the poll at No.23. The Yotes entered the preseason at No.19 but retired after a home loss to Rocky Mountain College.

Survey methodology

The poll was voted on by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences. Each conference receives an assessor for all four schools in the league.

The Top 25 is determined by a point system based on how each voter ranks the top teams. A team receives 25 points for each vote for first place, 24 for second place and so on through the list.

The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-scoring is considered a low score) is removed and the team’s ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for each ballot (including including the reduced-cost ballots) on which the teams appear.
Teams that receive only one point in the ballot are not considered “receiving votes”.
