Hillsdale finds its way back into the DII Coaches' poll at #24

It had become a running joke among Hillsdale fans. "Wow. That was a great win. I wonder how far we will drop in the Coaches' poll. Hillsdale's 34-17 win over then #15 Saginaw Valley knocked the Cardinals out of the poll and must have been enough to convince voters to put the Chargers back into the mix.

This week's opponent Grand Valley is ranked #23. They have been ranked a record 147 straight weeks. A win by the Chargers would end that streak.
