Men Fall DI College Rankings Week #2

Mount Saint Mary's, in blue on defense, did enough to move into the rankings. Colleen McCloskey photo.

Here's our second Men's DI College rankings, and as will happen through much of the season, we expand the number of teams listed as we see new results come in.

This time around we dropped Delaware out of the rankings after a 33-0 loss to Iona and a loss to Rutgers. It's just too early for them. Coming in to expand the list from 30 to 35 are Wisconsin, Wheeling Jesuit, Mount St. Mary's, Kentucky, Illinois, and NEC. 

Among the big movers, Air Force moves up after the win over Utah. Notre Dame College moves up after their September 10 win over Navy, and from that weekend also, Boston College beat Dartmouth, and then beat Syracuse to move up. Dartmouth, of course, moves down behind BC because of the loss, and Lindenwood-Belleville also drops after a loss to Wheeling Jesuit, who gets a bump. 

(A reminder - these rankings only include teams who are playing 15s in the fall.)
