Cats ranked in the Top 25

Many fans didn't think it was possible. Davidson would need to beat one of their BCS conference opponents before the country would rank them. Well, it seems that the Coaches thought that losing by four to UNC was good enough. Davidson is ranked #25 in the Coaches Top 25 poll.

This is the first time since 1970 that the Cats have been ranked in the Top 25. That year, Davidson made it as high as 15 in the old UPI poll. The College of Charleston was the last SoCon team to be ranked as they cracked the Top 25 back in December 2002.

Davidson is the only team in this week's Top 25 who has lost a game, and they are one of four mid-major teams. Gonzaga, Southern Illinois and Butler are the other three (technically Memphis does not come from a BCS conference, but they aren't considered a mid-major by many).

The Wildcats come in at #30 in the AP poll, moving up several spots from last week.
