After an unexpected undefeated start continued with a 42-7 win over Columbia on Saturday, the UAlbany football team has jumped to No. 23 in the FCS Sports Network Top 25 poll.

The Danes were ranked No. 24 before Saturday, but the thrashing of the Ivy League opponent brought them up one spot.

UAlbany will have a tough time staying in the Top 25 this week, as they play former FCS champion, James Madison, on Saturday at Bob Ford Field.

That game marks the return to Colonial Athletic Association play for UA. The conference has six ranked teams.
