COLUMBIA, S.C. – The NCAA has released its second official football rankings for Super Region 2, which will determine the teams advancing to the Division II playoffs, and the Benedict College Tigers are now the top-ranked team in the region.

Benedict, 10-0, took over the top spot after Delta State from the Gulf South Conference, last week’s No. 1 team, lost to West Georgia. Delta State dropped to No. 2, followed by West Florida from the Gulf South Conference.

Virginia Union University from the CIAA is now fourth, followed by a pair of school from the South Atlantic Conference – Wingate and Mars Hill. Fort Valley State University moved up to seventh following their win over Albany State last Saturday.

The rest of the top 10 is Limestone, Tuskegee and West Georgia.

Super Region Two is comprised of schools from the SIAC, CIAA, Gulf South Conference and South Atlantic Conference.

The top seven teams in the final region rankings will advance to the NCAA Division II playoffs, which begin Nov. 19. The No. 1 see will have a bye until the second round on Nov. 26.
