Week 20 Web Media Poll Analysis

There was no movement in the top half of the poll, this week, but there's a lot of change in 6-10th place. Northern Michigan gained a couple of places after a series-shutout sweep of Alaska, and Alabama-Huntsville popped up a place after a split with first-place Bemidji. Both Bemidji and Michigan Tech are off this week, so don't expect any movement there, going into next week's poll.
