The Polar Bears (6-2) received 116 points in the poll, which is 19 fewer than the 135 they received as the No. 25-ranked team. ONU received the 29th-most votes in the poll.

Calvin (Mich.) topped the poll for the second consecutive week with 1,675 points and all 67 first place votes, Southwestern (Tex.) is second with 1,564 points and Wittenberg is third with 1,543 points.
