D1AA-Only Rankings For November

This is our second all-DIAA ranking of the fall, as we're doing this once a month.

The top 18 is easy to track because those teams are in our all-D1 fall ranking.

Although ... we did take out Belmont Abbey as they are now funneled into NCR's D1 playoff, so they are now no longer seen as a DIAA team. That's a gray area and on another week we might have kept them in this ranking. FYI Belmont Abbey would be ranked 17th if we included them, one place above Texas State.

Of course with this ranking being monthly we have some big shifts. Four teams come into the Top 30, Boston College moves up eight spots, Kansas moves up six.
