Football Cracks Top-25 Rankings in Both Coaches and Sports Network Polls
ORONO, Maine -- The University of Maine football team (4-1, 1-0 CAA) have moved into the top-25 rankings in both the FCS Coaches Poll as well as The Sports Network (TSN) poll, as announced Monday, Sept. 30. Maine currently sits as the #23 ranked FCS team in the nation in both polls.
Coming off a 28-21 win on the road at #22/20 Richmond, the Black Bears were able to crack the top-25 in each poll for the first time this season. Two weeks ago, the Black Bears were ranked 25th in the coaches poll but slipped out of the top-25 following a loss at FBS member Northwestern.
Maine will welcome another top-25 team to Alfond Stadium on Saturday as it faces #24/25 Delaware at 3:30 PM. The Blue Hens are coming off a 29-22 upset victory over, then, #14 James Madison.
