Johns Hopkins Ranked Second in NCAA South Region Rankings

More news about: Johns Hopkins

Nov. 7, 2013

BALTIMORE, MD –- The Johns Hopkins football team added another ranking to its impressive resume today as the Blue Jays are ranked second in the first official NCAA South Region Poll of the 2013 season. This is first of two regional rankings that will be announced during the regular season by the NCAA.

The regional rankings are compiled by the official Regional Advisory Committee and are an accurate representation of where teams stand in the eyes of the NCAA Selection Committee that will put together the bracket for the upcoming NCAA Division III Football Playoffs. Johns Hopkins (8-0, 7-0 CC) has already claimed at least a share of the Centennial Conference title and can earn the title outright and the accompanying automatic bid to the NCAA Playoffs with one more victory.

Mary Hardin-Baylor holds the top spot in the south region and is followed by Johns Hopkins, Texas Lutheran, Wesley, Millsaps and Thomas More (Millsaps and Thomas More are tied for fifth).

The NCAA Playoffs will begin on Saturday, November 23 with 16 first-round games on campus sites. The bracket for the tournament will be set up in four, eight-team regions (East, South, North, West) and announced on Sunday, November 17 at 6 pm (live webcast on ncaasports.com).

In addition to ranking second in the south region, Johns Hopkins is also ranked eighth in the AFCA Poll, 12th in the d3football.com Poll and second in the Lambert Cup Poll.

Johns Hopkins returns to action on Saturday, November 9 when the Blue Jays host Franklin & Marshall (5-3, 5-2 CC). Kickoff is set for noon at Homewood Field.
