AFCA Division III Coaches' Poll - Week 7

BELTON, TX (KXXV) -

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team 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 (8-0, 5-0 ASC) clinched at least a share of the American Southwest Conference championship with a 59-10 victory over Sul Ross State last Saturday in Alpine.

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 969 total points in balloting of 42 head coaches from across the country. Defending national champion Mount Union is #1 in the poll with 37 first-place votes and 1,044 total points. Wisconsin-Whitewater is second with four first-place votes and 1,000 points. UMHB is joined in the poll by two other ASC programs. Hardin-Simmons is ranked 11th and East Texas Baptist is ranked 21st. Linfield College is ranked 8th by the AFCA. The Cru has wins all three of those programs this season.

           

“It is always good to go out to Alpine and come home with a victory, but I know our players were a little disappointed in the way we played in the first half,” Cru head coach Pete Fredenburg said. “We still have a lot to work to do and improvement to make if we are going to reach the goals we have set for this program.”

           

UMHB also remained at #3 in the country in the D3football.com Top 25 Poll. The Cru totaled 591 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 596 total points. Linfield is 7th, Hardin-Simmons is ranked 10th in the country and East Texas Baptist is ranked 21st in this week’s D3football.com Poll.

           

UMHB will return to action with another road game at Belhaven University at 1:00 PM this Saturday in Jackson, Mississippi. The Blazers are 1-7 overall after falling to Hardin-Simmons 55-21 last Saturday.
