The New Hampshire Wildcats win over Rhode Island coupled with North Dakota State's first loss in 33 games means UNH is the nation's #1 FCS team.

The Wildcats were sitting at #2 and move up a spot this week. The Bison drop from #1 to #4.

UNH plays Delaware this Saturday. If the Wildcats win, they would likely be the #1 team when they come to Orono in two weeks for the CAA regular season finale.
