The Texas A&M University-Commerce football team is ranked fourth in the third release of this year's Super Region Four rankings, as announced by the NCAA Division II Football Committee on Monday.
The Lions stay in the top four of the regional rankings, which remained unchanged. Undefeated Grand Valley State still holds the top spot in the region, while Midwestern State is second and Southwest Baptist is third.
Truman State is now in fifth place, followed by Ferris State in sixth, Colorado Mesa in seventh, Colorado Mines in eighth, Ashland in ninth and Colorado State-Pueblo in 10th.
This is the third and final publication this season of the Super Region rankings, which are officially used by the NCAA Division II Football Committee to select the playoff field on Sunday, November 13. The top seven teams from each of Division II's four Super Regions will qualify for the playoffs. The first seed will receive a bye to the second round, while the second, third and fourth seeds would host first round games.
Super Region Four consists of the Great Lakes Intercollegiate, Great Lakes Valley, Lone Star, and Rocky Mountain Athletic conferences.
