Wolves Break Into AFCA Coaches' Poll at #23
Posted October 15, 2013

The Newberry Wolves football team has jumped into the top 25 teams in the nation, according to this week's American Football Coaches' Association Poll, which ranks the Wolves as the No. 23 team in the nation.

Newberry has started the season at 6-0, marking the second time in school history the scarlet and gray have won the season's first six games. Newberry is 6-0 overall and 4-0 in South Atlantic Conference play. The Wolves are the only 6-0 team in Super Region II and one of only eight teams in all of Division II with a 6-0 in-region record.

This is Newberry's 24th appearance all-time in the AFCA national poll and the second time the Wolves have been in the No. 23 spot. That week also featured this week's opponent, as No. 23 Newberry defeated Lenoir-Rhyne 24-0 on November 3, 2007.

Newberry was ranked nine weeks in each the 2006 and 2007 seasons, four weeks in 2008 and one week in 2012. The Wolves have a record of 15-8 as a top 25 team.

The Wolves received 138 votes in this week's poll. Also ranked in the South Atlantic Conference is No. 19 Carson-Newman.

Three of Newberry's final five opponents are ranked or receiving votes - this week's opponent Lenoir-Rhyne received 25 votes (27th total), next week's opponent UNC Pembroke is ranked 10th nationally with 461 votes and November 9 opponent Carson-Newman is ranked 19th nationally with 252 votes.

Newberry's annual Battle for the Bishops Trophy against Lenoir-Rhyne (4-1 overall, 3-0 SAC) takes place this Saturday in Hickory, N.C., with a 2 p.m. kickoff. The game features the only two teams without a loss in SAC play this season.
