The Iowa Western Reivers are now the No. 1 team in the country in the NJCAA Division I Football Poll, released on Nov. 8.
Last week, the Reivers were separated by just four points from the No. 1 team in the nation, East Mississippi. But, East Mississippi lost in overtime to Hinds, 42-41, in a MACCC semifinal playoff game. That eliminated EMCC from conference title contention.
Meanwhile, the Reivers defeated Georgia Military, 23-19. The Reivers have two more games remaining against the Northwestern College JV and McDougle Tech.
After Iowa Western at No. 1, the rest of the Top 5 looked like this — No. 2 Snow, No. 3 New Mexico Military, No. 4 Northwest Mississippi and No. 5 Independence.
The rest of the Top 15 included No. 6 East Mississippi, No. 7 Hinds, No. 8 Monroe, No. 9 Jones, No. 10 Iowa Central, No. 11 Coffeyville, No. 12 Hutchinson, No. 13 Mississippi Gulf Coast, No. 14 Garden City and No. 15 Kilgore.
Lackawanna, Blinn, Garden City, Trinity Valley, Hutchinson received votes.
