COLUMBIA, KY - (Mon 11 Sep 2017) - The Lindsey Wilson football team climbed up two spots to No. 6 in the first regular season NAIA Football Coaches' Top 25 Poll, officials from the national office announced on Monday.

Lindsey Wilson garnered 275 total voting points from the panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences. LWC has now been ranked for 53-consecutive rating periods dating back to the first week of the 2013 season.

The move comes after the Blue Raiders had a bye week. Lindsey Wilson is currently 2-0 on the year after starting the season with wins over St. Andrews (NC) and Warner (FL), who was receiving votes in the national poll at the time. In two games, the Blue Raiders have outscored their opponents by a combined 90-10 margin, and have yet to give up a defensive touchdown.

Defending national champion Saint Francis (IN) maintains the top spot in the poll with 340 total voting points and all 15 first-place votes. Baker (KS) comes in at No. 2 with 327 points and Reinhardt (Ga.) is No. 3 with 311 points. Morningside (Iowa) (No. 4 with 304 points) and Montana Tech (No. 5 with 288 points) also reside just ahead of the Blue Raiders in the rankings.

Also from the Mid-South Conference Bluegrass Division, Georgetown (KY) comes in at No. 16 in the poll.
