FCS football rankings: Week 12, 2019

By Kevin Kelley -

FCS football rankings for Week 12 of the 2019 season have been released, and the North Dakota State Bison continue to top the polls.

North Dakota State, 10-0 this season, collected all 153 first-place votes in this week’s FCS STATS Poll. The second-ranked James Madison Dukes (9-1) collected one first-place vote last week, but did not receive any for Week 12.

Weber State (8-2), Northern Iowa (7-3), and Montana (8-2) complete the top five of the FCS STATS Poll.

Northern Iowa and Montana were previously ranked 5th and 6th, respectively, but each moved up one spot by virtue of South Dakota State losing to Illinois State, 27-18.

The Bison again received all 26 first-place votes in the FCS Coaches Poll. James Madison, Weber State, Montana, and Northern Iowa round out the top five of the FCS Coaches Poll.
