Montana Grizzlies (8-2)


North Dakota State, James Madison thriving at 1-2 in STATS FCS Top 25

(STATS) - In a season of numerous ups and downs in the STATS FCS Top 25, there have been two constants: North Dakota State and James Madison, who've been ranked No. 1 and 2, respectively, since the preseason.

Their blowout wins this past Saturday solidified them even more in the national media rankings on Monday. North Dakota State (10-0), the two-time defending FCS champion, beat Western Illinois 57-21 to become the first team to reach double-digits win and James Madison (9-1) topped New Hampshire 54-16 to become the first team to clinch at least a share of its conference title - its fourth in CAA Football over the last five seasons.

Both teams are beating FCS opponents on average by about 28 points. North Dakota State's magic number to clinch a ninth straight Missouri Valley Football Conference title is down to one. James Madison's only loss was against an FBS program - a 20-13, season-opening defeat to West Virginia.
