Saint Xavier, former No. 1 in the NAIA Coaches Top 25 football poll, lost this past Saturday to Saint Francis, opening up the possibility for elevation in the standings for Georgetown College.

The Tigers took care of business against Bethel University, winning 63-21, improving to 5-0 on the season and 1-0 in the conference. Voters took notice. GC is now No. 2 in the nation and received three first place votes.

Marian University moved from No. 2 to No. 1, while Saint Xavier fell to No. 6 and Saint Francis jumped from No. 10 to No. 7.

The Mid-South Conference as a whole had a nice weekend that translated in moves for all its Top 25 teams. University of the Cumberlands (5-0, 2-0) jumped from No. 12 to No. 9 and Faulkner University went from No. 25 to No. 22.

This is the highest ranking for Georgetown since being No. 2 on Sept. 9, 2003.
