MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- Albright's 62-9 victory over Wilkes proved to be enough to convince the D3football.com Top 25 voters that the Lions are worthy of being ranked. Following its dominant victory over the Colonels, Albright jumped into the rankings at No. 21 when the poll was released on Sunday.

Albright, who received votes in the last two polls, received 87 points to place 21st in the weekly poll.

Albright improved to 5-0 overall and 4-0 in the Middle Atlantic Conference and sits alone in first place in the conference standings following Stevenson's 18-15 loss to Delaware Valley.

Wisconsin-Whitewater suffered its first loss of the season on Saturday and Mount Union assumed the top spot in the poll after receiving 19 first-place votes and 619 points. Linfield received six first-place votes and is second in the poll with 595 points. Mary Hardin-Baylor, Wesley and Wisconsin-Oshkosh round out the top five.

This marks the Lions first appearance in the poll since the 2009 season, which is the last time Albright has advanced to the NCAA playoffs.

Albright will take its undefeated record on the road to FDU-Florham on Saturday (Oct. 17) for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
