Nov 17, 2010, 10:47 AM EST

The Gridiron Power Index (GPI), the index ranking for the NCAA Division I FCS and a top indicator of at-large playoff selection released its index after the action of Week 11 of the 2010 season.

The top five this week features Delaware – which can clinch the outright CAA Football championship with a win this weekend vs. Villanova, followed by Appalachian State, the Southern Conference champions, at No. 2.  The third spot is occupied by Eastern Washington of the Big Sky – who, oddly enough, need No. 7 Montana State to lose to No. 12 Montana to win the Big Sky Championship – followed by William & Mary of the CAA at No. 4 and Stephen F. Austin at No. 5.
