There was no movement in the top eight teams of the latest American Football Coaches Association Division II Coaches Poll for Week 5.
The University of West Florida remains at No. 6 (590 points) in the national poll after a dominant 48-24 victory at North Greenville University on Saturday that saw the Argos put up more than 600 total yards of offense.
