Previous No. 3 Northwest Missouri State, No. 4 Midwestern State (TX) and No. 5 Wayne State (MI) all lost over the weekend to give the Division II AFCA Coaches' Poll a different feel heading into Week 3.

No. 1 Pittsburg State (KS) retains the top spot while Minnesota-Duluth stays steady at No. 2. Colorado State-Pueblo moves up three spots to No. 3 and Grand Valley State (MI) jumps to No. 4 after scoring 83 points in its Week 2 conference and home opener.

Albany State (GA) and Hillsdale (MI) drop out of the Top 25 as Ashland (OH) and Colorado School of Mines make their initial Top 25 appearances of the 2012 season.

Week 3 features just one game pitting a pair of Top 25 teams against one another as No. 21 Kutztown (PA) visits No. 12 Bloomsburg (PA) on Saturday, September 15.
