(LIVINGSTON, Ala.) The University of West Alabama football team climbed five positions to No. 7 in this week's D2Football.com Top 25 Poll following last week's 49-30 victory over then No. 1 Valdosta State.

This is the first time this season the Tigers have broken into the top 10 in both the D2Football poll and the weekly AFCA poll, where UWA is ranked No. 8.

The Mustangs are ranked 24th in the AFCA poll and 21st in D2Football.
