Following its loss to the Eastern Kentucky Colonels, the SEMO football team was dropped from the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) official Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) top 25 rankings.

The Redhawks were ranked No. 11 in the initial preseason poll, after a FCS playoff appearance and OVC Championship. SEMO is now 1-3 on the season, with two of their losses being by a combined four points.
