AFCA_logo

WACO, TEX.– Wisconsin-Oshkosh pulled off one of the regular season’s rarest feats this past weekend – they defeated then-No. 1 Wisconsin-Whitewater, 10-7. Since 2009, the Warhawks had only lost three games, all coming in the 2012 regular season, when the Oshkosh Titans won the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The big victory shuffles up the Top 10, as Mount Union (Ohio) returned to the top spot, with 38 first place votes, for the first time since 2012. Coming in behind the Purple Raiders are Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas) at No. 2 and Linfield (Ore.) at No. 3, each receiving two first place votes themselves. Wesley (Del.) and Wheaton (Ill.) fill out the rest of the Top 5.

This is the first time No. 24 Albion (Mich.) has been ranked since Sept. 18, 2001, while No. 25 Washington & Lee (Va.) makes its first appearance in the AFCA Division III Coaches’ Poll.
