Another comeback victory for the Wesley College Wolverines merited no change as they remain No. 6 in this week's D3football.com Top 25 Poll released Sunday.

Wesley trailed 7-0 after a quarter against the Virginia University of Lynchburg before eventually triumphing 24-7. The Wolverines have trailed in all 6 contests this year on their way to a 5-1 record.

The top 8 in the poll all remained the same, with Mount Union (23) and Mary Hardin-Baylor (2) combining to collect the 25 first place votes. Wesley did pick up 23 poll points, but still remain 7 behind No. 5 Wisconsin-Whitewater.

The top 10 are Mount Union, Mary Hardin-Baylor, Linfield, St. Thomas, Whitewater, Wesley, Salisbury, Cal Lutheran, North Central, and UW-Oshkosh.

Besides UMHB and Salisbury, future Wesley opponent Huntingdon jumped 5 spots to No. 18, while two teams that Wesley has already beaten this year, Louisiana College and Birmingham-Southern both dropped out following losses.

Menlo College dropped out of the NAIA Top 25 Coaches Poll last week following their loss to Webber International. Wesley travels to face the Oaks in Atherton, California Saturday at 3pm Eastern. You can hear the game on 1150AM WDEL.
