THE ELEVENTH 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.’
With an important win over fifth-ranked Amherst College on Saturday, Trinity College jumped two spots to the top position of our New England D3 Top 10 Poll heading into the final week of the regular season. The Bantams can capture their conference’s crown for the third-straight season with a win this Saturday against Wesleyan University.
MIT bounced back following its initial setback of the season with a much-needed 20-0 win over Norwich University to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive. A win over Springfield College could help their chances, but a lot also hinges out the outcome of Coast Guard Academy–Merchant Marine.
Endicott College scored an exciting win over Western New England to move up two spots, while Framingham State jumped four positions to the fourth spot. Both teams are still in contention for NCAA Tournament bids.
This year’s Noontime Sports Top 10 New England D3 Football poll is assembled by local coaches and media members.
