It’s official: the defending champions are favored to repeat across every division of NCAA football. After Alabama topped the FBS poll, North Dakota State the FCS poll and Mount Union the D3 poll, defending champion Texas A&M-Commerce completed the cycle by topping Monday’s AFCA Division II Top 25.

Fresh off beating West Florida for their first Division II national championship, Colby Carthel’s Lions topped Monday’s poll with 748 total points and 13 first-place votes. Runner-up West Florida actually earned one more first-place vote, but came in 27 total points behind A&M-Commerce.

Minnesota State and Indiana (Pa.), each of them coming off 1-loss seasons, checked in at Nos. 3 and 4, and Fort Hays State (Kan.) and Northwest Missouri State, Division II champions in 2013 and 2015-16, tied for fifth.
