FCS Rankings Week 10: Villanova Jumps To #3 In Latest Coaches Poll

Thanks to their big win over the Richmond Spiders and key losses by Stephen F. Austin and William & Mary, the Villanova Wildcats leapt up two spots to #3 in the latest FCS coaches’ poll.

Villanova did not receive any first place votes, with all but one of those going to #1 Appalachian St. Both the App St. Mountaineers and #2 Jacksonville St Gamecocks are 8-0 compared to Nova at 6-2. So for the Wildcats to have a shot at a second straight FCS title, they’re going to need help. In all likelihood they wont get it next week. While both Mountaineers and the Gamecocks are on the road, they’re facing 4-4 Georgia Southern and 3-5 Eastern Kentucky. Villanova is also on the road next week against the 3-5 Rhode Island Rams.
