The Netherlands moved up to 24th in the D3football.com poll, number 25 with the AFC, after a setback on Saturday.

Bella—College Central took a spot in the D3football.com Top 25, dropping to 24th after suffering its first loss on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Dutch national team was ranked 25th in the preliminary survey of the American Football Coaches Association.

The Dutch (2-1) were 12th a week ago in the D3football.com rankings, but lost a 38-35 decision to Loras College in Bella in the American Rivers opener for both teams.

League rival Wartburg College (3-0) debuted in the rankings this season at number 22 and is number 23 in the AFCA poll.

North Central College (Illinois) remains top in both rankings with a narrow advantage over Saint John’s University (Minnesota).

Central is out this week and returns to American Rivers to play his first road game in the October 1st season at Nebraska Wesleyan University.
