New England D3 Football: Week Four Poll (Monday, Sept. 23rd)

D3WK4092319

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports 

Another week of New England D-III football is in the books. And we had some exciting (and interesting) outcomes from this past weekend.

WPI became our new number one team following an impressive 31-12 win over Husson University, which entered the previous week as our ninth-ranked team in the region before falling to 18th this week.

The Engineers have outscored their opponents, 88-15, through three contests and will open conference play on Saturday, September 28th when they visit ninth-ranked Springfield College, which lost to Union College last Saturday.

Endicott College moved-up one spot after checking in third one week ago. The Gulls came close to beating Wesley College this past weekend but ended up losing 20-17. Despite the setback, the Gulls appear to be a team to watch in Commonwealth Coast Football (CCC) – they begin league play on Saturday when they host Becker College.

Western Connecticut and Norwich University moved-up following important conference wins, while MIT returned to the Top 10 with a victory last Friday over Becker.

UMass Dartmouth moved-up – they are now 3-0 – and University of New England joined our poll after defeating Castleton University.
