Cal Poly football has once again moved up in the national polls, this time moving from No.12 to No. 10 in the two NCAA Division 1-AA polls.
Two weeks ago the Mustangs were ranked 17th in the ESPN/USA Today poll and 18th in The Sports Network poll following a big win over then-No.11 Montana State at home.
The Mustangs then went on the road and took it to South Dakota State in their conference opener, 24- 16.
During the 2004 season Cal Poly was ranked as high as No.5, after winning its first seven games and then falling in back-to-back losses to UC Davis and Eastern Washington.
Prior to last season’s success, the highest ranking the Mustangs had achieved was No. 14 after winning their opening three games in 2003.
The Sports Network poll for this week has its top five teams listed as New Hampshire (3-0), Southern Illinois (2-1), Western Kentucky (2-1), Montana (2-1) and Delaware (3-0), according to a Cal Poly press release.
