Eastern Washington and Youngstown State were each the biggest movers in the latest TSN FCS Top 25 Poll after strong wins over the weekend.
The defending champion North Dakota State Bison put forth an impressive 52-0 blowout of the latest The Sports Network FCS Top 25 Poll.
After the two FCS title contenders in the rankings comes a trio of schools that each picked up at least one first-place vote after the weekend, including none other than Montana State, a team who took down Chadron State 33-6 on Saturday to start the year off on the right foot.
And while much of the FCS world is still buzzing about Youngstown State's improbable upset of Big East representative Pittsburgh, a win that was accompanied by a well-deserved jump from No. 13 to No. 6 in the polls, Eastern Washington also made plenty of noise with their own 20-3 dismantling of the Idaho Vandals. The Eagles also jumped three spots up to No. 9 with the victory, but won't have much time to catch their breath with a daunting test against Washington State scheduled for Saturday.
