Clearing up ratings confusion: Lopers fall from No. 2 to No. 6

Two weeks ago, after the Lopers defeated Western New Mexico 65-30, many students were up in arms when the Lopers fell from No. 2 in their region to No. 6.

Most did not understand the drop in rankings, which could potentially hurt a UNK bid at the postseason.

The reasoning behind the drop in regional rankings is that the rankings work on a point system, much like the Bull Championship series.

The Lopers' last couple victories have come against teams with no Division II victories, hurting their point total. Add that up with UNO and Wayne State losses, and that equals the fall for UNK in Super Regional Three.

This weekend, the Lopers take on Colorado School of Mines in a game that will determine the RMAC champion. Both teams come into the match-up at Cope Stadium with 7-0 RMAC records. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m., and the football team has asked the UNK student body to fill the stadium with white.

UNK comes into the game averaging 41 points per game on offense.
