The top five or six (or more) are making themselves known, and it's basically teams that win consistently and win by large margins.
Usually these top-ranked teams also hold the opposition to not very much. That's basically why the teams ranked in the top eight are ranked there.
Well is Army really the #1 team in the fall?
Until they lose, probably. They certainly looked their unflinching, pitiless best against St. Bonaventure over the weekend.
The only change in the top 12 is BYU easing ahead of Life thanks to a really strong outing against both Colorado and Colorado State.
We actually have a video talking about some of the major movers on this week's rankings.
Overall, though, we see the top-ranked teams (for the most part) win convincingly. The teams ranked 12 or so to maybe 25 are those that are either winning against teams that aren't ranked, or haven't really got going yet. We usually have a nagging question about them one way or another.
A reminder that we are ranking only those D1A, NCR D1, and D1AA teams that are playing significant seasons in the fall.
Some of these teams will be ranked both in the fall and the spring, while others will only be ranked in the fall and then at our overall end-of-season ranking.
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.
