UCM has 43 points, four points behind No. 24 Valdosta State. North Georgia is No. 1 with Central Missouri’s MIAA rival Northwest Missouri State at No. 2. Last week’s No. 1 — Minnesota State — fell to No. 7 with a 31-27 loss to Winona State.
Central Missouri joins Indianapolis, Charleston and Valdosta State as teams entering the Top-25 this week. Wingate, Delta State, Angelo State and Clarion dropped out.
The Mules (6-2) will visit Lindenwood on Saturday.
