The new coaches poll has the last undefeated team in the #8 spot (up from #12 last week).

Here is where unbiased Massey Ratings have the 15-0 Raiders, #6:

Massey Ratings as of 1/12/16

A few things to note:

– Massey shows the Raiders with one loss since Massey counted the exhibition game against San Jose State (an NCAA D-I opponent).
– The Raiders need to get to a top four spot in the coaches poll by the middle of March in order to be one of the four #1 seeds in the national tournament. (12 more wins should get them there.)
– SOU’s strength of schedule (SoS) isn’t nearly as high as the other top 10 teams according to Massey. Concordia’s departure to NCAA D2 (and being replaced by 0-8 Walla Walla and 1-7 Multnomah in the Cascade Conference) isn’t helping.
