Despite a lopsided loss on Saturday at Virginia Tech, the Appalachian State University football team maintained its top five ranking in The Sports Network Top 25 Poll.

 

And the Mountaineers (0-1), who take on North Carolina A&T in their home opener Saturday at Kidd Brewer Stadium, dropped to third in the rankings, but they also received two first-place votes. Defending national champion Eastern Washington, which suffered a 30-27 decision at Washington on Saturday, remained No.1. The Eagles also received 111 first-place votes. Georgia Southern, which won its season and SoCon opener at Samford Saturday night, is ranked second in the poll, and the Eagles received 29 first-place votes.
Northern Iowa and William & Mary round out the top five. Montana State, Wofford, Delaware, Richmond and Jacksonville State round out the top ten. Richmond moved up in the polls after the Spiders, who were ranked 16th last week, defeated Duke of the Atlantic Coast Conference in their season opener in Durham, NC.
Chattanooga, which was on the receiving end of a 40-7 loss at Nebraska last week, is ranked 23rd.

 ASU is ranked second in the FCS Coaches Poll; the Apps also received one first place vote.  Georgia Southern is ranked third, but the Eagles received three first-place votes. Wofford is eighth; Chattanooga is 23rd. Eastern Washington is No.1. The Eagles also received 23 first-place votes.
