BELTON, TX (KXXV) -

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team climbed one spot in one poll and held its ground in the other as the Cru is ranked in the top three in the nation in both NCAA Division III Top 25 Polls again this week. The Cru (9-0, 5-0 ASC) is coming off a 59-21 victory over Belhaven University last Saturday in Mississippi.

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 974 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 1,046 total points. Wisconsin-Whitewater is second with two first-place votes and 985 points. UMHB is joined in the poll by one other ASC program. Hardin-Simmons is ranked 11th again this week. Linfield College is ranked 8th by the AFCA and East Texas Baptist is receiving votes, but fell out of the top 25. The Cru has wins all three of those programs this season.  

“We wanted to go out and reestablish our running game last weekend and I felt like we were able to do that,” Cru head coach Pete Fredenburg said. “We have lofty expectations for this program and we have one more regular season game to finish strong going into the postseason. Our players will be focused and ready to play this Saturday and Louisiana College will have our full attention.”         

UMHB jumped up one spot to #2 in the nation in the D3football.com Top 25 Poll this week. The Cru totaled 597 points and claimed 10 first-place votes in that poll to leap-frog Wisconsin-Whitewater. Mount Union is #1 with 13 first-place votes and 605 total points. Linfield is 7th, Hardin-Simmons is ranked 10th in the country and East Texas Baptist is receiving votes in this week’s D3football.com Poll.          

UMHB will return to action with the regular season finale this Saturday at Crusader Stadium. The Cru will face Louisiana College (4-5, 1-4 ASC) in a 1:00 PM kickoff on Senior Day and Military Appreciation Day.
