There was not a lot of movement in BOXTOROW coaches and media polls this week as the top six teams remained the same.
For the second-straight week, North Carolina A&T was a unanimous selection in the coaches poll receiving all 20 first-place votes.  Grambling, Alcorn State and Bethune-Cookman stayed in the next three positions.
With Southern’s loss to Alcorn State, the Jaguars dropped a spot to No. 8, two points ahead of Tennessee State who rose one spot to No. 9 after its 20-6 win over Austin Peay.
Alabama State debuted in the poll for the first time this year at No. 10.
Hampton dropped out of the poll.
In the media poll, South Carolina State and Prairie View A&M tied for the No. 6 spot.  Bowie State and North Carolina Central each moved up one spot to No. 8 and No. 9, respectively.  Virginia Union reentered the poll at No. 10, while Southern dropped out.
A couple of key matchups this week as North Carolina A&T travels to Orangeburg to take on South Carolina State, while Alcorn State hosts Prairie View A&M.
