This is the third time we are releasing the Top 25, counting the Preseason Rankings.

For as many times we have a new No. 1 team sitting at top.

Juniata takes over after posting three more victories last week and staying unbeaten so far. With all five teams ahead of Juniata suffering losses, it was the logical thing to do.

It became increasingly harder to slot teams after.

Last week’s No. 1 Emory lost to No. 2 Calvin. It was Calvin that was No. 1 in the Preseason Rankings and Emory No. 2. However, Emory beat Calvin to take over No. 1 before losing this week.

Emory also lost to Claremont, which lost to Washington (MO), which lost to Cal Lutheran, which also beat Calvin but lost to Emory.

Christopher Newport moved up one spot behind Juniata, the only team to beat Christopher Newport this season. Chicago could have climbed higher but lost to Illinois Wesleyan. That’s Chicago’s only defeat so far.

With all but three teams between Nos. 18-25 taking hits last week, there was lots of movement at the bottom of the rankings.

The biggest jumper is Birmingham-Southern, which has only dropped a contest to Emory this season. Joining Birmingham-Southern in the Top 25 this week is Illinois Wesleyan, Southwestern, Texas-Dallas and East Texas Baptist.
