In what was the highest rated contest of the weekend, the Linfield (Ore.

) Wildcats proved why they are the No. 3 team in the nation after blanking then-No. 15 Pacific Lutheran (Wash.), 29-0. This week sees John Carroll (Ohio) enter the poll at No. 21. It s the first time the Blue Streaks have been in the poll since Sept. 30, 2003. No. 24 Illinois Wesleyan and No. 25 St. Johns (Minn.) both find themselves back on the poll as well. Concordia-Moorhead (Minn.) took advantage of the shuffle in the bottom half of the poll to move five spots, up to No. 18, during their bye week. This sets up a top 20 matchup between the Cobbers and No. 8 Bethel (Minn.), as the Royals will be looking to take care of business on the road. 2013 American Football Coaches Association Division III Coaches Poll - October 7, 2013
