NAIA Football FirstDown PlayBook Top 25 Poll - Poll Four (April 5)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Mustangs remain No. 1 in the fourth edition of the NAIA Football FirstDown Playbook Top 25 Poll. Morningside earned 17 first-place votes and 418 points for the third week in a row. Saving one first-place vote for No. 2 Grand View (Iowa). The top 15 teams stayed the same from the previous poll highlighted by Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) Keiser (Fla.) and Concordia (Mich.) in the top five.
- The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences.
- Each conference is given one rater for every four schools in the league.
- The Top 25 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 25 points for each first-place vote, 24 for second-place and so on through the list.
- The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered a low rating) is removed and the team's ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for every ballot (including discounted ballots) that the teams appear on.
- Teams that receive only one point in the ballot are not considered "receiving votes."
