THE TWELFTH 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.’
MIT moved into the top spot this week with a convincing win on Saturday against Springfield College to claim the program’s conference crown. The Engineers, who moved to 9-1 overall, have positioned themselves for a NCAA Tournament berth.
Trinity College, which checked-in second overall, secured the seconds position by clinching their third-straight conference title, while Framingham State moved-up with a conference title victory, as well.
Amherst College and Western New England rounded out the top five with important week 11 victories, while Coast Guard Academy and Husson University each moved-up this week.
