(Tuesday, September 21; Sioux Center, Iowa) The weekly NAIA Football FirstDown PlayBook Coaches’ Top 25 Poll has been released and the 2-1 Dordt Defenders are no. 22 in this week’s poll. Initially the Defenders were in a tie for 20th, but, a mathematical error was discovered, adjusting the Defenders to the no. 22 spot.

The Defenders are behind Southwestern at no. 21 and in front of Montana Western at no. 22. Dordt is one of three GPAC teams in the polling with Northwestern and Morningside holding the no. 2 and 3 spot respectively. Dordt will travel to face Doane on Saturday, September 25 before a bye week. Dordt plays Northwestern and Morningside on back-to-back weeks on the road in late October.
