We've hit the final week of the regular season, and the FCS Top 25 poll had some major moving and shaking for a third straight week.

Previous No. 1 William & Mary dipped five spots to No. 6 after losing to James Madison on Saturday. So Delaware, after beating up on UMass, is back on top at No. 1. Appalachian State is at No. 2 after an impressive win over Wofford, which at the time was a Top 5 squad.

And check out Eastern Washington! After nudging past Southern Utah, the screamin' Eagles have moved all the way up to No. 3. I know some Bobcat fans are wondering about this, since MSU trounced EWU 30-7 earlier in the season.

Anyway, here are the rest of the rankings:
