College football rankings, week 7: Big Sky teams rise, but Montana still absent

Troy Babbitt-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Montana State Bobcats garnered three first-place votes in this week's FCS Top 25, headlining four Big Sky Conference teams who are ranked after Saturday's results. The Bobcats are 6-0 after a 48-41 win over UC-Davis.

The Montana Grizzlies, however, are not ranked for the second-straight week. The Grizzlies were excluded from the top 25 last week for the first time since 1998 after losses to Northern Arizona and Eastern Washington. A 40-17 win over Northern Colorado was not enough to move them back into the rankings, and Montana sits five slots out, according to point totals.

Eastern Washington moved up one spot to no. 6 after a dominant 55-17 win over North Dakota. The Eagles' only loss remains a four-point defeat at Washington State. Northern Arizona (4-1) moved up two spots to no. 16 on its bye week.

The undefeated Cal Poly Mustangs made the biggest jump in the poll among Big Sky teams, moving five slots to no. 15 after a 45-23 win over Weber State.
