FARGO — For the second straight week, North Dakota State’s football team received votes in the Associated Press major college football poll.
The Bison received one vote in this week’s and last week’s poll. It's not the first time the Bison received votes in the AP poll.
NDSU garnered votes in the AP Top 25 after each of its first three national championships, for 10 straight weeks after beating Iowa State in the 2014 opener, and four weeks in 2016 after beating 11th-ranked Iowa. NDSU's 74 votes after the Iowa win were the most for an FCS team in the AP Top 25.
The Bison, 9-0 after Saturday night’s 56-17 win at Youngstown State, have been the top-ranked team in the FCS polls all season. They are outscoring opponents by an average score of 37-11 this season.
