Alabama (3-3) also moved down three spots to No. 8 after losing to Orlando (2-3). Alabama and Bossier-Shreveport play each other this weekend in Alabama.

Spokane moved up in the polls after a slim win on Sunday over the No. 13 Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz (2-4). Cleveland jumped five spots to No. 5 after a home win against Tulsa.
