UMHB Football ranked in top four in both Top 25 polls

Belton, Texas – The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team is ranked third and fourth in the country in the two major NCAA Division III Top 25 Polls this week. The Cru (3-0) is coming off a 43-10 victory over Wisconsin-La Crosse last Saturday for its 57th consecutive regular season win.

The Cru is ranked third in the country in the inaugural American Football Coaches Association Top 25 Poll of the 2015 season. The Cru received one first-place vote and 943 total points from the AFCA. Defending national champion Wisconsin-Whitewater is #1 in the poll with 36 first-place votes and 1,041 total points. Mount Union is second with five first-place votes and 1,006 points. Hardin-Simmons is ranked 17th in the nation with 371 total points and Texas Lutheran received votes totaling 57 points. The Cowboys and Bulldogs are both on the UMHB schedule for later this season. 

“I think last week’s game was very beneficial for us and our program,” Cru head coach Pete Fredenburg said. “We got a win and continued to make improvement and that’s something we want to see each week. Building this team is a process and we still have work to do to get where we want to be as a program.”         

UMHB remained at #4 in the country in the D3football.com Top 25 Poll. The Cru totaled 548 points in that poll. Wisconsin-Whitewater is #1 with 19 first-place votes and 619 total points. Mount Union is ranked second with four first-place votes and 592 total points and Linfield College is third with the other two first-place votes and 566 total points. Hardin-Simmons is ranked 19th in the country and Texas Lutheran is receiving votes in the poll.           

UMHB will have an open week this Saturday. The Cru will return to action with a 1:00 PM home game against Belhaven University on October 3rd at Crusader Stadium. UMHB and Belhaven will be meeting for the first time since the 2001 season and the all-time series is tied 2-2.
