South Dakota State's hold on the number-two spot in the STATS FCS Top 25 is over.

The Jackrabbits tumble five spots after a 24-9 loss at then number-25 Northern Iowa, last Saturday (October 20).

SDSU is seventh in this week's rankings.

North Dakota State is once again a unanimous number-one. Illinois State is down three spots to 11th after a loss to the Bison. Northern Iowa, on the strength of the SDSU win, is up eight spots from 25th to 17th.
