2016 AFCA Division III Coaches' Poll - Week 5

BELTON, TX (KXXV) -

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team once again held its ground and is ranked third in the country in both of the two major NCAA Division III Top 25 Polls again this week. The Cru (6-0, 3-0 ASC) knocked off another nationally-ranked team with a 59-22 victory over East Texas Baptist University last Saturday in Marshall.

The Cru is ranked third in the country once again in this week’s American Football Coaches Association Top 25 Poll. The Cru received two first-place votes and 973 total points from the AFCA. Defending national champion Mount Union is #1 in the poll with 35 first-place votes and 1,041 total points. Wisconsin-Whitewater is second with five first-place votes and 999 points. UMHB’s American Southwest Conference rival, Hardin-Simmons University, moved up one spot to #8 in the nation with 722 total points. ETBU dropped to 22nd in the country following the Tigers loss to the Cru. Linfield College is ranked 9th by the AFCA this week. UMHB topped the Wildcats 66-27 earlier this season. 

“I think we faced some adversity in the first half last Saturday and we were able to identify it and get those things fixed for the second half,” Cru head coach Pete Fredenburg said. “I was proud of the way our guys responded and we will have to respond to another major challenge this week.”        

UMHB also remained at #3 in the country in the D3football.com Top 25 Poll. The Cru totaled 588 points and claimed seven first-place votes in that poll. Mount Union is #1 with 15 first-place votes and 606 total points. Wisconsin-Whitewater is ranked second with two first-place votes and 597 total points. Linfield is 8th, Hardin-Simmons is ranked 11th in the country and East Texas Baptist dropped to 19th in this week’s D3football.com Poll.         

UMHB will return to action with a crucial American Southwest Conference showdown against Hardin-Simmons (6-0, 3-0 ASC) this Saturday at Crusader Stadium. The Cru and Cowboys will kickoff at 1:00 PM. The winner of the UMHB-HSU game has won at least a share of the ASC title in every season the two teams have faced each other.
