  • 1. KANSAS CITY, Mo. – While most sports fans have their eyes on the Super Bowl this weekend, one of the best weeks of games this season is on tap as the top four teams and six of the top eight will face other ranked teams in the latest top 25 of the NABC/Division II rankings. Augustana remains atop the poll for the second week in a row and on its slate this week is a road game Saturday against No. 8 MSU Moorhead in a clash of division leaders in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. Second-ranked Fairmont State has two ranked teams awaiting it this week, beginning Thursday when it hosts No. 6 West Liberty. Two days later, the Falcons head to the road to take on No. 4 Wheeling Jesuit. Western Oregon, who moved up a spot to third, has a road matchup Saturday at No. 19 Seattle Pacific. Lincoln Memorial follows Wheeling Jesuit in the rankings and while it won’t face a top 25 team, LMU does have a road date Saturday at Wingate, a team that received votes this week and who already owns two wins over top-10 teams this season. Following West Liberty in this week’s poll is Saint Anselm, with MSU Moorhead, Bellarmine and UC San Diego rounding out the top 10. Midwestern State dropped to 11th this week, while fellow Lone Star Conference foe Angelo State comes in at No. 12. Queens (N.C.) is 13th , followed by Chico State and Fort Lewis. Eckerd checks in at No. 16, followed by Sunshine State Conference rival Barry, Cal Poly Pomona, Seattle Pacific and West Chester. Seattle Pacific, who returned to the top 25 this week heading into its matchup with Western Oregon, is one of four teams from outside the top 25 a week ago that made it in the latest rankings. Saginaw Valley State makes its first appearance of the year at No. 21, with Kentucky Wesleyan, Wisconsin-Parkside and two other returners to the rankings, Northwest Missouri State and Ashland rounding out this week’s poll. Among this week’s top games: #11 Midwestern State at Tarleton State, Wednesday #21 Saginaw Valley St. at Lake Superior St., Thurs. #6 West Liberty at #2 Fairmont State, Thursday #1 Augustana at #8 MSU Moorhead, Saturday #2 Fairmont State at #4 Wheeling Jesuit, Saturday #5 Lincoln Memorial at Wingate, Saturday #3 Western Oregon at #19 Seattle Pacific, Saturday NABC/Division II Rankings (Feb. 2, 2016 – Poll #10) Record Points Last 1.
