UMHB Football Ranked in Top Four in Both Top 25 Polls

Belton, Texas – The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team is held its ground and is ranked third and fourth in the country in the two major NCAA Division III Top 25 Polls again this week. The Cru (3-0) is coming off a bye week and has 57 consecutive regular season wins.

The Cru is ranked third in the country in the second American Football Coaches Association Top 25 Poll of the 2015 season. The Cru received one first-place vote and 947 total points from the AFCA. Defending national champion Wisconsin-Whitewater is #1 in the poll with 38 first-place votes and 1,045 total points. Mount Union is second with two first-place votes and 1,007 points. Hardin-Simmons is ranked 15th in the nation with 421 total points and Texas Lutheran received votes totaling 23 points. The Cowboys and Bulldogs are both on the UMHB schedule for later this season.    

“We had a couple of very intense practices and were really able to work on some conditioning, so I think our bye week came at a good time,” Cru head coach Pete Fredenburg said. “We need to come out focused and intense this Saturday to keep building on the momentum we took into that off week as we face Belhaven this weekend.”          

UMHB remained at #4 in the country in the D3football.com Top 25 Poll. The Cru totaled 546 points in that poll. Wisconsin-Whitewater is #1 with 21 first-place votes and 621 total points. Mount Union is ranked second with two first-place votes and 597 total points and Linfield College is third with the other two first-place votes and 569 total points. Hardin-Simmons is ranked 18th in the country and Texas Lutheran is receiving votes in the poll.          

UMHB will return to action with a 1:00 PM home game against Belhaven University on Saturday 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. The Blazers are 0-4 on the year entering Saturday’s contest.
