Illinois State Redbirds (6-5)


Ten conferences represented in STATS FCS Top 25

(STATS) - There's a wide-open feel with the STATS FCS Top 25, and perhaps that will follow into the postseason.

A season-high 10 conferences were represented in the national media poll Sunday, led by No. 1 James Madison as well as the Missouri Valley Football Conference with six teams - two more than any other conference.

JMU (11-0), the defending national champion and on a Division I-high 23-game winning streak, claimed all 153 first-place votes after it beat Elon 31-3 to nab a second straight outright CAA Football title. The Dukes then secured the top seed in the 24-team playoffs, also announced Sunday.
