MSU football moves up to No. 1

Coach, players are excited, wary of historic ranking


"It's nice to see that our hard work is being noticed by people outside the program," Schaudt said. "When you're in high school or college, it was always a notch in your belt if you could beat someone who was ranked higher than you, but we're already used to getting the best effort from our opponents."

Minnesota State (6-0) plays at 6 p.m. Saturday at Southwest Minnesota State. Last season, at Blakeslee Stadium, the Mustangs led 24-10 with seven minutes remaining before the Mavericks rallied for a 34-31 overtime victory.

"Southwest has a great offense, and we have something to prove from last year," Schaudt said. "We want to hold on to the ranking and prove we deserve it."
