North Dakota State Bison (2-1)


James Madison is No. 1 in Stats Perform FCS Top 25

(Stats Perform) - A familiar team sat atop the Stats Perform FCS Top 25 on Monday, and it was James Madison, not North Dakota State.

JMU, which gained 34 of the 40 first-place votes in the national media poll, moved up one spot to No. 1 after posting its second straight win to open the spring season. NDSU, which capped the 2019 season by defeating the Dukes for their third straight national title, fell to No. 6 following a blowout loss at Southern Illinois.

The two pre-eminent FCS powers have developed a long-distance rivalry, meeting three times in the last four national playoffs. NDSU was perched in the top spot for 32 straight polls (dating to the final 2017 rankings) after JMU, the 2016 national champ, was No. 1 for the previous 14 polls.
