The Southwestern College football team is now ranked in the NAIA’s Top 10.

The 3-0 Moundbuilders are No. 9 in the nation in the latest NAIA Coaches’ Top 25 released Tuesday.

SC moved up two spots from No. 11.


The Builders are the highest-ranked KCAC team in the poll. Evangel is the only other conference team in the rankings at No. 25. The Valor are also 3-0 and were unranked previously.

Avila and Bethel dropped out of the rankings, but are still receiving votes, along with fellow KCAC school Friends.
