Bethune-Cookman, fresh off a 14-12 victory against FBS foe Florida International, moved up 4 spots in the SportsNetwork media poll and 5 spots in the FCS coaches’ poll this week.  BCU is now ranked 18th in both polls.

14 ranked FCS schools faced off against FBS competition in college football’s opening weekend.  Only Bethune-Cookman and three time defending national champs North Dakota State exited the weekend with victories over FBS opponents.

North Dakota State trounced Iowa State of the Big 12 34-14 and is now ranked 1st in both polls.  It was the fifth consecutive win over a FBS opponent for NDSU.  #16 Tennessee State joins BCU as ranked HBCUs.
