With the bulk of action done for the fall semester in DI, there is little movement in the Top 25, though the American Collegiate Rugby Championship bowls did cause some shakeup.
For its win over Bowling Green, American International College moves up one slot over Dartmouth. Clemson is rewarded for its big win over rival South Carolina by jumping Utah, and the Gamecocks fall from the rankings altogether. Life crushed Army in its undergrad debut in Charlotte, N.C., despite the fact that the Black Knights were in top form having gone undefeated up to that point. For that feat, the Running Eagles supplant St. Mary's as No. 3.
Some teams stand pat after wins, like Kutztown and Air Force. The Zoomies have quietly had a very impressive fall, crushing all comers in the West, narrowly falling to Army and beating Navy and San Diego State. Kutztown has been great, too, capping off the autumn with a resounding win over Michigan. But both lost to Army, so they can't go anywhere.
Arizona, which really only fell from the rankings because it was idle in the fall, rejoins the Top 25 after beating Grand Canyon, a very good funded upstart, in its varsity 15s debut.
