Football sits at No. 18 in both polls

MINNEAPOLIS – The Salisbury University football team remains in the top 20 in the nation in both national polls again, with the release of the poll and the American Football Coaches Association poll.

Salisbury moved up one spot in the poll, up to No. 18, which matches the team's position in the AFCA poll. The Sea Gulls garnered 165 points in the poll, just three points ahead of No. 19 Wabash College. In the AFCA rankings, Salisbury was good for 334 points, only 26 behind the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.

The Sea Gulls (7-1, 6-1 New Jersey Athletic Conference) are coming off a 45-24 victory at Christopher Newport University this past Saturday.

Each poll's top five remained unchanged this week, with the top four teams in each poll matching. The University of Mount Union sits atop each set of rankings, followed by the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, and the University of St. Thomas-Minnesota, respectively. In the AFCA poll, North Central College sits at No. 5, while it is the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh in the No. 5 slot in the poll.

The Sea Gulls host Wesley College this Saturday, November 5 at Sea Gull Stadium. The contest is slated to begin at noon, with Senior Day festivities preceding kickoff.
