The Appalachian State University football team dropped five spots in The Sports Network and FCS Coaches Polls on Monday afternoon.

 

The Mountaineers (3-2 overall; 1-1 Southern Conference), who lost their second SoCon game since 2007 on Saturday at Wofford College, are ranked eighth in both polls. The Terriers (3-1; 2-0) move up to No.5 in the TSN Poll, and fourth in the Coaches Poll. Georgia Southern (4-0; 3-0) remains the No.1 team in the country in both polls.
The Eagles, who demolished Elon Saturday, received 128 first-place votes in the TSN Poll and 25 first-place votes in the Coaches Poll.  Northern Iowa is unanimous at No.2 in the polls. The Panthers, members of the Missouri Valley Conference, are 3-1. They also received 19 first-place votes in the TSN Poll and two first-place votes in the Coaches Poll.
Chattanooga, which blew a 27-point lead and lost to The Citadel on Saturday and is winless in SoCon play (at 0-2), is ranked 17th in TSN Poll and 23rd in the Coaches Poll.
The Colonial Athletic Association has eight teams ranked in the TSN Top 25. New Hampshire (at No.6), James Madison (No.7) and William & Mary (No.9) lead the pack. It's first time in 16 years that the CAA has that many teams ranked in the TSN Poll.
ASU has a bye on Saturday; Wofford plays at The Citadel, and Georgia Southern entertains Chattanooga.
