The balance of strength in the Football Championship Series has swayed to the west. At least it looks that way through the first two weeks of the regular season. Two-time defending national champion, North Dakota State, leads the way as the No.1 team in the county in
The Sports Network Top 25 College Football Poll on Monday. The Bison received 146 first-place votes.
Eastern Washington, a national champion in 2010, is No.2 with six first-place votes. Montana State, Towson (the only east coast team ranked in the top ten), and Sam Houston State, a two-time national runner up, round out the top five.
Georgia Southern (2-0), which destroyed St. Francis (Pa.) Saturday, is ranked tenth in that poll; Wofford, which defeated The Citadel 21-10 in Charleston, S.C., Saturday, is 16th,
Appalachian State, which is 0-2 for the first time since 2009, is not ranked this week. It's the first time the Mountaineers haven't been ranked since September 25, 2005.
Ironically, the Mountaineers, led by the legendary Jerry Moore, began their run of three consecutive national championships that season.
The Mountaineers, who were among the teams receiving votes, have an open week on Saturday. They begin Southern Conference play at Elon on Saturday, September 20 at 6 p.m.
Coverage begins at 4 p.m. on AM 1450, WATA Radio and the IMG App State Sports Network.
