    Tuskegee University, the defending Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference football champions, moved up two spots in the latest American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Division II Top 25 poll to No. 17 after the team improved to 2-0 after a come-from-behind 19-13 victory over Albany State University last week.

    Tuskegee will travel to Cleveland, Ohio to face the defending Black College National Champions and Division II runner-ups Winston-Salem State University, the No. 19 team in the country, at the Cleveland Classic played at Paul Brown Stadium, home of the NFL Cleveland Browns.
    The marquee matchup, one of two Top 25 games this weekend, is scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff.

    The other Top 25 matchup features No. 2 Minnesota State-Mankato traveling to No. 7 Minnesota-Duluth. These two teams last met in 2010, with Minnesota-Duluth winning 45-21.

    The Top 10 teams in the AFCA Division II Coaches Top 25 Poll kept their same spot after the second week of play in 2013. Valdosta State (GA.) still sits at No. 1, but lost one of its first place votes to No. 2 Minnesota State-Mankato, which has three this week. Northwest Missouri State, West Texas A&M and Colorado State-Pueblo, who earned one first-place vote, round out the Top 5.
    Ashland (Ohio) and Delta State (Miss.) dropped out of the poll this week, making room for No. 22 Washburn (Kan.) and No. 23 St. Cloud State (Minn.). Both teams are 2-0 on the season.
