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.

D3WK3GMS TO WATCH

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports 

Welcome to the third week of the New England Division III football season – are you ready for kick-off?

Before another busy weekend of games begins, it is time to dish out some picks – we need to improve our prediction record as we enter the third week 6-14 in weekly predictions.

Let’s see if we can go 10-for-10 this week – we have high hopes!

Have a great weekend, everyone, and remember to stay connected with @Noontime_FB on Twitter for in-game updates, scores and more.


New England D-III Football | Games to Watch (Week Three)

Rankings for teams are from this week’s Noontime Sports Top 20

No. 11 MIT at Becker College (Friday, Sept. 20th): The Engineers were idle last week but should be ready to combat the Hawks’ rushing attack on Friday evening. PREDICTION: MIT 17, Becker 10

No. 2 WPI at No. 9 Husson University (Saturday, Sept. 21st): The Engineers gained some much-needed momentum heading into their final non-conference clash of the season with a hard-fought 6-3 win last week over RPI. PREDICTION: WPI 24, Husson 21 

Wesley College at No. 3 Endicott College (Saturday, Sept. 21st): The Gulls face their toughest test of the season on Saturday against a very talented Wesley squad, which needed overtime to beat Delaware Valley last Saturday. PREDICTION: Wesley 42, Endicott 23

Bowdoin College at No. 5 Trinity College (Saturday, Sept. 21st): Can the Polar Bears pull the upset? Maybe, but we think the Bantams will find a way to score their first win of the season, but it certainly won’t be easy. PREDICTION: Trinity 32, Bowdoin 24  

No. 8 Western Connecticut at Bridgewater State (Saturday, Sept. 21st): This is a must-win for the Bears, who have lost back-to-back non-conference games. Western Connecticut will arrive at the campus with some momentum from a solid win one week ago against Dean College. PREDICTION: Western Conn. 28, Bridgewater State 21 

No. 15 Middlebury College at Bates College (Saturday, Sept. 21st): This game was an instant classic one year ago – the Panthers edged the Bobcats, 35-34. Middlebury enters Saturday’s meeting with some momentum after beating Williams College last Saturday. Bates is seeking its first win under second-year coach Malik HallPREDICTION: Middlebury 20, Bates 13 

No. 7 Coast Guard Academy at No. 10 Norwich University (Saturday, Sept. 21st): Norwich quarterback Matt Dunn and the Cadets offense have been fun to watch this season. The air attack will be on display again Saturday in a battle of 2-0 squads, which should help the Cadets top Coast Guard Academy in the battle for ‘The Mug.’ PREDICTION: Norwich 28, Coast Guard 18

Fitchburg State at No. 13 UMass Dartmouth (Saturday, Sept. 21st): The Corsairs enter week three with a ton of momentum from the first two weeks. UMass Dartmouth’s offense has been explosive in their last two games and should continue its success through the air for the third-straight week. PREDICTION: UMass Dartmouth 29, Fitchburg State 14 

Castleton Univesity at University of New England (Saturday, Sept. 21st): Brian Peters and the Nor’easters offense will be ready to combat a talented Spartans defense to secure their second win of the 2019 season. PREDICTION: UNE 28, Castleton 17 

No. 19 Salve Regina at Dean College (Saturday, Sept. 21st): Both teams are desperate to crack the win column, so this is what we would call a must-win for both Dean and Salve. The Seahawks have a slight edge entering this contest, but they must control the time of possession and find a way to slow down Dean’s dynamic duo, Julian Burris and Errol BreauxPREDICTION: Salve 20, Dean 16

D3 FOOTBALL PRESEAON TOP 20

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports 

A brand new season of New England Division III football is set to begin in a few days with teams returning to their respective campuses later this week (and month) to prepare for their upcoming campaigns. And with the return of New England D-III football it can only mean one thing: a preseason poll, which features our Top 20 teams from the region.

Similar to last season (and the year before), Noontime Sports will produce a weekly poll, which will appear on Mondays throughout the 2019 season. Fans can expect our next poll to be posted Monday, September 2nd as games will begin later that week on Friday, September 6th and Saturday, September 7th, and will feature 20 teams, not 10 like we did previously.

D3 Football Preseason: The Favorites

D3 PRESEASON FAVORITES

By Matt Noonan | @MattyNoonz11

Happy Monday!

We’re another day closer to a brand new season of New England Division III football, which means its time to highlight our preseason favorites.

As usual, let us know if you agree (or disagree) with our preseason predictions by posting a comment below!


Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC): Western New England: The Golden Bears are poised to capture yet another conference crown this fall, but they certainly will be challenged by Endicott CollegeHusson University, and Salve Regina. Expect a big season from quarterback Alec Coleman, who was tabbed our Noontime Sports Offensive Player of the Year last November.

Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC): Maritime (N.Y.): While I certainly think Dean College will be in the mix for the top spot, in the end, the Privateers will prevail. Both teams will meet in mid-October in what could be a de-facto regular-season championship clash.

Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC): Framingham State: The Rams enter the upcoming season with some holes to fill, especially at wide receiver and in the secondary, but expect coach Tom Kelley to find the right pieces to fill those voids before Framingham makes the trek to Endicott for a must-see week one clash.

New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC): Trinity College: The Bantams enter the 2019 season with hopes of capturing their fourth-straight conference crown. Trinity can certainly accomplish this task but will need to do it without halfback Max Chipouras, who graduated this past spring. The Bantams should return a slew of talent on both sides of the ball, which will help them contend for a conference crown.

New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC): Springfield College: The Pride should capture their second NEWMAC title in three seasons, but they certainly will be challenged by Coast Guard AcademyMIT, and WPI. I also think Norwich University could provide some match-up issues, too, but again, I am expecting Springfield to finish atop the NEWMAC standings in late November.
