West Georgia fell out of the top spot to No. 6 after its loss to the Panthers, while North Alabama and Valdosta State come in at No. 10 and No. 16, respectively.
The Panthers wrap up the regular season against the Blazers on Saturday. FIT will take on VSU at 3 p.m. ET in a game that has been selected as a Division II Game of the Week.
