ISU, EIU Make FCS Top 25
NORMAL, Ill. (AP) -- Two Illinois teams made the Football Championship Subdivision coaches' preseason Top 25.

FCS coaches voted Illinois State No. 10 in the poll released Tuesday. Eastern Illinois is ranked No. 23.

The Redbirds were 9-4 last season and made it to the FCS playoff quarterfinals. But they lose 12 starters off that team.

Eastern Illinois finished 7-5 under first-year coach Dino Babers but lost in the first round of the FCS playoffs.

Southern Illinois was the only other Illinois school getting votes, with six. That wasn't enough to make the Top 25.
