Kaitlin Sells

After their 48-31 win over the New Mexico State Aggies, the Eagles have moved up 10 spots in the CBS Sports 129 rankings.

GS, now ranked No. 54, is the second-highest ranked team in the Sun Belt after surpassing Troy, who dropped to No. 56 after a loss over the weekend.

Upcoming opponent and rival Appalachian State is the only team to rank higher than GS, coming in at No. 23.

With a 6-1 record, the Eagles look to continue their four-game win streak as they take on the ASU Mountaineers Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m. The game will take place in Paulson Stadium and be streamed on ESPNU.
