The top four of Adams State, Grand Valley, Colorado Mines, and Chico State remained the same, while Western State slipped from a tie for fourth to sole possession of No. 5 this week.

On the women's side, there was no movement in the rankings around the Cavaliers. Oklahoma Baptist made the biggest movement out of on the week with a jump from No. 21 to No. 19.

Like the men, the top four of Adams State, Western State, Grand Valley State, and U-Mary all remained the same. Augustana made a slight leap into the top five up one spot from No. 6.
