THE SIXTH WEEK OF THE NEW ENGLAND D3 FOOTBALL SEASON HAS ARRIVED, WHICH MEANS IT IS TIME TO UNVEIL OUR NEWEST TOP 10 POLL OF THE SEASON, AS WELL AS OUR ‘TEAMS ARE ON THE RISE.’
Once again, we had some movement this past week following an exciting fifth week of the 2018 season.
Amherst College slid into the top role for the first time this season, while Williams College made the leap from ‘on the rise’ to the second position with an impressive 21-16 win over Trinity College.
The Bantams, who were previously ranked number one for the past two weeks, tumble to the ninth position, while Springfield College, Framingham State and Western Connecticut rounded out the top five.
MIT moved up three spots to the sixth position with an impressive conference win last Saturday over Merchant Marine. The Engineers have won five-straight and will attempt to make it six-straight wins this Saturday against Maine Maritime.
Finally, Endicott College returns to the poll following back-to-back wins over Curry College and Hobart.
This year’s Noontime Sports Top 10 New England D3 Football poll is assembled by local coaches and media members.
