Men DII College Rankings Week Nov 17

Well there's not a lot to say here. We had just a few Round 1 playoff games, and most went according to expectations.

The one game in which the lower-ranked team was victorious was #21 Lehigh over #18 North Carolina 18-15. Lehigh moves up.

Also moving up is Loyola after a nice victory over Middle Tennessee State, and Boston University after a close loss to UMass-Lowell (a game we actually though BU would pull out).

Finally Thomas More comes in after showing a good fight against Wisconsin-Whitewater in a loss.

Grand Valley State and Bethel drop down. GVSU has had to pull out of the playoffs, and we drop down teams that can't get on the field (as opposed to teams that don't feel like it—we drop them down harder). Bethel was kind of in the same situation—small rosters will do that—and lost to GVSU in the Great Lakes season so has to drop down too.

Watch for a lot of movement after this weekend.
