CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) — Eastern Illinois has jumped to the No. 2 spot in the Football Championship Subdivision rankings after last Saturday's win over Southeast Missouri.
The ranking is the highest for any Ohio Valley Conference team since EIU held the No. 2 spot late in the 2002 season.
The Panthers (6-1, 3-0 OVC) hold the No. 2 spot in both the Sports Network Top 25 and the coaches poll. Both were released Monday.
North Dakota State is No. 1 in both polls.
EIU takes on No. 21 Tennessee State on Saturday in Nashville.
