NEWBERRY, S.C. - This week's round of Division II football polls have been released following the nation's opening weekend of play. Newberry College stays put in both the American Football Coaches' Association and D2Football.com polls.

Entering Saturday's home opener against Chowan, Newberry is ranked No. 16 in the AFCA poll, where it was slotted last week. There was a slight dip in points received from 260 to 247.

In the D2Football.com poll, the Indians remain ranked at No. 14. This is the 10th consecutive poll Newberry has appeared in for both publications.

The Indians will shoot for their tenth consecutive victory at Setzler Field on Saturday at 1:30 p.m., as they host the Chowan Hawks. For tickets, please call (803)321-5101.
