Six teams in the country boast undefeated records with Carroll (Mont.) and St. Xavier (Ill.) holding the most wins (11)... The last time a team other than Carroll (Mont.) and Sioux Falls (S.D.) was ranked at No. 1 was Saint Francis (Ind.) on Nov. 12, 2006 - a streak of 39 polls... Carroll has now been ranked in the Top 5 in the last 62 straight polls dating back to November, 2004... St. Francis boasts the longest consecutive stretch of being named in the Coaches' Top 25 Poll - now standing at 126 straight mentions - the last time St. Francis was not mentioned in the Top 25 was Oct. 19, 1999... After St. Francis, Carroll is the next team in line with 113 straight Top 25 rankings while Sioux Falls stands at 112 straight mentions... Since 2000, Carroll has been ranked No. 1 53 times, the highest amount of any program during that time span; Sioux Falls is second with 41 mentions at No. 1 followed by Georgetown (Ky.) with 14, Northwestern Oklahoma State with 11 and St. Francis with three...
