NAIA football poll predictions

Matt Retzlaff making the tackle for the #2 Raiders

The entire Frontier Conference had a bye yesterday, but that doesn’t mean things won’t change in tomorrow’s coaches’ poll.

#3 Faulkner lost, at home, to an unranked team. That will drop them down a ways. The coaches will likely put them near the bottom of the top 10 even though Massey Ratings has them at #14, not far from the #9 they had them at before the loss.

#1 Lindsey Wilson won, not surprisingly, to another winless team. Lindsey Wilson’s opponents now have a combined record of… 1-19. That’s not a typo. The one win of one of the teams they beat came against an 0-5 team. In other words, it’s not mathematically possible for them to have had an easier schedule so far. Lindsey Wilson will likely lose, at least once and probably twice, over the next four weeks as they finally begin to play decent teams.

#4 Morningside could tie or pass idle Southern Oregon as they beat the #14 team on the road. Massey Ratings has Morningside at #4, but the coaches love the Great Plains Conference. Don’t be surprised to see them at #2 on Monday.

Meanwhile the Raiders will be traveling to Montana Western this weekend. Massey has this as #1 @ #3.
