Men D2 College Rankings for Fall 2022 Week 3

The big results within the GRR Men's D2 Rankings environment have to be North Carolina State shutting out UNC-Wilmington and Washington University beating St. Louis University.

That would be a #20 over a #7 and a non-ranked team over a #24. We also got unranked Central Missouri over UMS&T (#23) and unranked Grand Valley State coming in after a massive win over Calvin.

Massive Statement Win for NC State

Montana State moves up also moved up after a good result of School of Mines; Virginia and Southeastern Louisiana also move up after victories.

Numbers are a question for some teams and we've moved teams out of the Top 40 or further down until we see them build their depth a bit more. We still have some conferences that haven't started yet, so there is a lot of rugby still to be played.
