We're ranked lower than Northwestern and Purdue?The Big Lead is first out of the gate and they only listed 12, and we weren't included:
That is correct.Silly to read much into this stuff right now because it will change so much in the next few weeks. That said we are definitely getting dinged in the power rankings due to the FCS label in front of SDSU's name.
I would take the Jackrabbits in a matchup against most of these juggernauts some of the other teams in the conference played:
I honestly believe that team we faced on Thursday would beat most if not all the teams on the list above.
This is a more reasonable take.Fred chimes in:
9. Minnesota Golden Gophers (1-0, 28-21 victory over South Dakota State in Week 1, at Fresno State Week 2). There isn’t a ton of differentiation in this list, numbers 10 through 7 – you could really put them in any order. I wouldn’t have been surprised if Minnesota lost to a very talented FCS team in South Dakota State at home in Week 1, and I won’t be surprised if they lose at Fresno State in Week 2. That being said, for now, based on strength of opponents so far, I’m comfortable ranking them ahead of Maryland at the present time.
