2016 AFCA Division III Coaches' Poll - Week 6

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 (7-0, 4-0 ASC) knocked off another nationally-ranked team with a 20-15 victory over Hardin-Simmons University last Saturday in Belton.

The Cru is ranked third in the country once again in this week’s American Football Coaches Association Top 25 Poll. The Cru received one first-place vote and 971 total points in balloting of 42 head coaches from across the country. Defending national champion Mount Union is #1 in the poll with 38 first-place votes and 1,045 total points. Wisconsin-Whitewater is second with three first-place votes and 997 points. Hardin-Simmons dropped three spot to #11 in the nation following the loss to UMHB. Linfield College is ranked 8th and East Texas Baptist is ranked 21st. The Cru has wins over both of those programs this season.        

“Our players have some lofty goals and know that we have to continue to improve each week if we are going to reach them,” Cru head coach Pete Fredenburg said. “We still have a lot to play for and I think our kids are disappointed in our performance on Saturday.”      

UMHB also remained at #3 in the country in the D3football.com Top 25 Poll. The Cru totaled 589 points and claimed eight first-place votes in that poll. Mount Union is #1 with 14 first-place votes and 605 total points. Wisconsin-Whitewater is ranked second with two first-place votes and 597 total points. Linfield is 7th, Hardin-Simmons is ranked 10th in the country and East Texas Baptist is ranked 18th in this week’s D3football.com Poll.          

UMHB will return to action with an American Southwest Conference road game at Sul Ross State University at 2:00 PM this Saturday in Alpine. The Lobos are 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the ASC on the year and have won three straight games.
