Johns Hopkins Up to 16th in AFCA, D3football.com Polls

More news about: Johns Hopkins

BALTIMORE, MD – The Johns Hopkins football team continued its steady climb in the national rankings today as the Blue Jays moved from 18th to 16th in the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) top 25 and also jumped one spot from 17th to 16th in the D3football.com Poll.  Johns Hopkins is currently 8-1 overall and 7-1 in the Centennial Conference.
 
Johns Hopkins totaled 485 points in the AFCA Poll to secure its spot at number 16.  In the D3football.com Poll, the Blue Jays earned 230 points to move up the one spot to 16th this week.
 
This week's #16 ranking by the AFCA is the 94th top 25 ranking for Johns Hopkins since the start of the 2003 season, while the top 25 ranking from D3football.com is the 102nd top 25 ranking from that organization since 2003.
 
Johns Hopkins will return to action on Saturday, November 10 as the Blue Jays close the regular season at home against McDaniel.  A win would earn Johns Hopkins at least a share of its 10th consecutive Centennial Conference title and secure the league's automatic bid to the upcoming NCAA Playoffs.
