WACO, Texas (November 9, 2015) – The Colorado State University-Pueblo football team was the No. 4 team in the American Football Coaches Association poll Monday, a ranking the Pack have received for three straight weeks.
A move at the top occurred as the then-No. 1 University of West Georgia lost and shifted the top two teams up a spot. The new No. 1 is Northwestern Missouri State University with 29 first-place votes. No. 2 is Ferris State University with two first-place nods. Ashland University grabbed the last first-place vote and moved from fifth to third after a win against nationally-ranked Michigan Tech University and finishing the regular season undefeated.
The ThunderWolves (9-1, 8-0 RMAC) are coming off a 51-20 home victory against then-No. 16 Colorado Mesa University. The win moved the Pack to 8-0 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference play and secured at least a share of the team's fifth consecutive RMAC Championship.
CSU-Pueblo caps the regular season with a road contest at New Mexico Highlands University (2-8, 2-6 RMAC). A win would secure an outright conference championship and likely lock in the Pack for their fifth straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
