Kansas Wesleyan, which reached the national semifinals a year ago, is No. 1 in the College Football America Yearbook 2019 NAIA preseason Top 30.

Benedictine (KS), the team that eliminated Kansas Wesleyan in the semifinals, is No. 2. Benedictine lost to Morningside in the NAIA Championship Game.

Saint Xavier, which reached the quarterfinals, is No. 3, while defending champion Morningside checks in at No. 4. Concordia (MI) rounds out the preseason Top 5.

Former national champions Marian and Saint Francis (IN) are No. 6 and No. 7, respectively. Baker, a national finalist in 2016, is No. 8, followed by Reinhardt at No. 9 and Dickinson State at No. 10.
