Eastern Washington, on the heels of its loss to North Dakota State on Saturday in the FCS Championship, finished second in both the American Football Coaches Association poll and the STATS media poll released on Monday.

The national champion Bison, who earned their record seventh FCS title, topped both polls.

South Dakota State was third in both polls. Kennesaw State and Maine flip-flopped the final two Top Five positions in the polls.
