Football Ranked #1 in New England Division III

Springfield College Football Springfield, Mass. -- September 20, 2010 -- The Springfield College football team, sporting a 3-0 record, is ranked #1 in the New England Division III Football Coaches poll after week one results were tabulated today.

Although many schools have played as many as three games to date, today was the first day the 2010 poll was figured. The poll will continue to be tabulated through the second week of November.

Head Coach Mike DeLong's Springfield College team led all Division III squads with 166 total points, and 14 of the 17 first-place votes. Springfield has beaten King's College, 31-7, Husson University of Bangor, Me., 51-0, and Wilkes University, 44-7, the last three weeks. The last two of those victories came on the road. Behind the Pride came Maine Maritime (2-0) with 126 points and the remaining three first-place votes.

The only other unbeaten team in the poll was third-place Norwich University (3-0) with 114 points, followed by Amherst (0-0) with 113 points, Curry (2-1) with 104, Trinity (0-0) with 74, Williams (0-0) with 66, Endicott (2-1) with 33, Plymouth State (2-1) with 30, and Middlebury (0-0) with 28.

Amongst others receiving points were: WPI (19), Framingham State (17), Western New England College (14), Bridgewater State (12), and Worcester State (8).

Springfield also received some points in the d3football.com Division III national poll for the first time earlier today. SC received five points, which was good enough to tie for 44th overall. That was the top showing by a school from New England.

Next week, the NESCAC schools will have played one game each. Springfield will have played defending Empire 8 co-champion and 2009 automatic NCAA qualifier Alfred University next Saturday at 2 pm.
