Salisbury up three spots to No. 21 in AFCA poll

WACO, Texas – The American Football Coaches Association released its week nine top-25 poll on Monday afternoon and Salisbury University football moved up three spots to No. 21 in the nation.

Salisbury moved up after posting a convincing 45-7 victory over Rowan University on Saturday afternoon. Kadarrius Campbell and Jack Navitsky aided in a Sea Gull rushing attack that racked up 496 yards against the Profs' defense, rushing for 149 and 113 yards, respectively, and combining for four touchdowns.

The top five, which is a combined 40-0, saw no new changes, as the University of Mount Union held strong at No. 1 in the country, garnering 41 first-place votes and accumulating 1,289 points. University of Mary Hardin-Baylor stayed at No. 2, receiving 11 first-place votes and totaling 1,259 points. The final three spots were rounded out by No. 3 College at Brockport (1,154), No. 4 University of Wisconsin-Whitewater (1,118), and No. 5 St. John's University (1,109).

Salisbury was joined by fellow New Jersey Athletic Conference opponent Frostburg State University, which held its spot from last week at No. 6 in the country.

Salisbury returns to action on Saturday, November 3 when it hosts rival Wesley College for Senior Day. Kickoff is scheduled for 12 p.m.
