THE SEVENTH 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 sixth week of the 2018 season.
Amherst College and Williams College remained the top two teams in New England, while Western Connecticut shot up two spots to the third position following another convincing conference win. The Colonials have scored 40 points or more in their last three outings, which bumps their season average up to 37.8 points per game.
MIT moved into the top five after winning their six-straight, while Tufts University and Trinity College also moved up, checking-in sixth and seventh, respectively. Both teams meet this week in an important conference clash.
Finally, Framingham State and Endicott College appeared in the final two positions – yes, the Rams were higher last week, but needed a grind-it-out effort to get past Fitchburg State this past weekend.
This year’s Noontime Sports Top 10 New England D3 Football poll is assembled by local coaches and media members.
