MISSOULA, MT. — Jaacksonville State continued to roll in the votes as the top-ranked team Monday in the third week of the Any Given Saturday Football Championship Subdivision Top-25 poll.

 

The Gamecocks captured 59 of 78 first-place votes in the poll that is widely recognized as the most accurate in FCS since its debut as a fan-based voting service over a decade ago.

 

JSU handed Tennessee State a 48-13 loss on Saturday, a week after nearly upsetting Auburn before losing in overtime to the No. 6-ranked Associated Press Football Bowl Subdivision team.

 

North Dakota State, Coastal Carolina, South Dakota State, Illinois State and Villanova were the other FCS teams to pick up first-place votes this week.
