BAY CITY, Mich. - For the first time this season, all of the 16 GLIAC football teams will be in action this weekend. The GLIAC will enter the weekend with four teams ranked in the latest American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Division II Top 25 poll.

Saginaw Valley State University (2-0) has started the season 2-0 and has jumped all the way up to No. 10 in the poll after starting the season unranked.  The Cardinals passed their first road test of the season last week, knocking off Malone University (0-1), 37-14.  SVSU returns home this weekend to host 1-0 University of Findlay (Saturday, 7:00 p.m.), which was idle last week.
