Kansas, City – There was no movement in the top 15 of the NAIA Top 25 Coaches Poll this week. Montana Tech stayed put at No. 13 after routing Dickinson State 42-6 on Saturday.
The Orediggers defeated Dickinson State for the first time since 1992. This is the first year Dickinson State is in the Frontier Conference as a full member.
Tech (5-1) has won their last five straight games and sit on top of the Frontier Conference standings. This is the longest win streak in the conference this season. The last time Tech won five straight was October to November 2004.
No. 8 Carroll College is the only other Frontier school in the poll. Eastern Oregon is out completely after losing to Southern Oregon. Southern Oregon is receiving votes just out of the top 25.
Montana Tech is off next weekend. The Orediggers return to action on the road in LeGrande, Oregon for a rematch of their only loss of the season against Eastern Oregon.
