Pack appears in national poll again
Pack "receives votes" for the second straight week.
WACO, Tex. (GoThunderWolves.com - Sept. 13, 2010) - For the second straight week, CSU-Pueblo has "received votes" in the American Football Coaches' Association Division II Top 25 poll, the AFCA announced Monday.
The Pack received one vote despite not playing in any games last week during a bye week that excused virtually the entire RMAC. One vote on the poll means one voter selected the Pack as the 25th-ranked team in the country. The ThunderWolves are the only 2-0 team in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, which includes fellow AFCA poll entrants, Colorado School of Mines (received 12 votes), and Nebraska-Kearney, which are ranked 23rd in the nation. Both Mines and Kearney are 1-1 in 2010.
It marks the third time since the program was restarted in 2008 that the ThunderWolves received votes in the AFCA poll. Each time, CSU-Pueblo received one vote.
Prior to its forays in the AFCA Division II poll, the ThunderWolves last appeared in a national poll in 1983, when the program was still classified as an NAIA school. The other major national Division II poll, run by D2Football.com, will be released Tuesday.
