FCS teams flipped a number of spaces in this week's ADD'S HBCU SPORTS REPORT HBCU, including in the top spot, while there was some shifting in the Division II poll after previously undefeated Livingstone lost last weekend.

In the FCS poll, Bethune-Cookman remains a clear No. 1 after a solid win over Delaware State this weekend.  The 4-1 Wildcats are ranked 17th in the national FCS poll, one of three HBCU teams (the others are Tennessee State and Alcorn State) in the national poll. 

Tennessee State's second loss of the season, to OVC foe Southeast Missouri, dropped them from first to fourth behind third ranked Alabama State (who defeated TSU last month) and second ranked Alcorn State, which knocked off Alabama State last Thursday.

Three wins in a row lifted Grambling to the eighth spot. Grambling, undefeated in the SWAC, has won consecutive games for the first time since 2011.

In Division II, Winston-Salem State continues their run in the first place spot.  But the new second place team is Virginia Union, who won their third straight game this weekend. Last week's second place team, Livingstone, went into Elizabeth City State undefeated but was routed by the Vikings and drops to fourth.
