Dom Izzo's 2022 FCS Top 25 Poll - Thru Week 6

The top 25 shakeup continues after a couple of upsets from this Saturday.

We are part of The Trust Project.

We're halfway thru the 2022 FCS regular season and there are just five unbeaten teams remaining (not counting the Ivy League teams).

North Dakota State and South Dakota State are not among them, but the Dakota Marker game will have a huge bearing not only on the Missouri Valley title race, but home playoff seeding for the postseason.

There were a pair of upsets from Saturday that affected the poll this week.
