The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team is ranked #1 in the country in the two major NCAA Division III Top 25 Polls for the sixth consecutive week this week. The Cru (7-0, 6-0 ASC) is coming off a 45-7 win over Belhaven University for its 22nd consecutive victory.

The Cru is ranked #1 in the country in the sixth American Football Coaches Association Top 25 Poll of the 2017 season. The Cru received 46 first-place votes and 1,294 total points from the AFCA. Mount Union is second with five first-place votes and 1,248 total points and Wisconsin-Oshkosh ranks third at 1,202 points and the Titans received the other first-place vote. UMHB’s American Southwest Conference rival Hardin-Simmons University climbed held steady at #6 in the AFCA poll with 1,012 points. Linfield College is ranked #8 in the AFCA poll again this week. The Cru has wins over both of those teams this season.

“I think our front four and our entire defense are really playing well right now and we’ve done some good things on special teams,” Cru Head Coach Pete Fredenburg said. “Offensively, we have shown some flashes and have a lot of potential, but we are still a work in progress. We keep working to improve our team and are looking to get the right guys in the right spots. We have some very lofty goals for this program and some work to do to reach those goals.”

UMHB also held on to the #1 spot in this week’s D3football.com Top 25 Poll. The Cru took 21 first-place votes and 621 total points. Mount Union and Wisconsin-Oshkosh are also #2 and #3 in that poll. Hardin-Simmons held steady at #5 in the D3football.com poll and Linfield moved up one spot to #6.

The Cru will hit the road for a 2:00 PM kickoff at McMurry University this Saturday in Abilene. UMHB will be playing at McMurry’s Wilford Moore Stadium for the first time since 2010. The War Hawks are 2-5 overall and have a 2-4 mark in ASC play this season.
