WACO, TEX.– With a strong resume through the first seven weeks of the 2015 season, Linfield (Ore.) remains at No. 3 in the AFCA Division III Coaches’ Poll. The Wildcats put together five solid wins in which they have scored no less than 44 points and allowed no more than 14. With such impressive wins, Linfield snagged three first place votes this week, while current-No. 1 Mount Union (Ohio) has 37 and No. 2 Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas) has two.

This week will feature several big match-ups, as Linfield hosts No. 25 Whitworth (Wash.), No. 23 Rowan (N.J.) travels to take on No. 4 Wesley (Del.) and No. 5 Wheaton (Ill.) will try to maintain its control of the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin against No. 21 North Central’s prolific offense. Wisconsin-Oshkosh will also have a tough match-up, as they host No. 13 Wisconsin-Platteville. The Titans will be looking to solidify their hold on the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and their No. 7 ranking.
