NEWBERRY, S.C. - The Newberry College football team is ranked 23rd nationally in this week's D2Football.com Media Poll, which was released today.

Newberry (0-1) was idle last week, and dropped two spots in the media poll. Tarleton State (2-0) and Central Missouri (2-0) leap-frogged Newberry in this week's rankings.

Newberry opponents in this week's poll include top-ranked Valdosta State (2-0) and Carson-Newman (1-1), which dropped from 5th to 7th in this week's poll, following a loss to North Alabama.

Newberry returns to action Thursday night, as the scarlet and gray welcome North Greenville University to Setzler Field for a 7 p.m. kickoff. Thursday's game has been dubbed Service Appreciation Night. All military, police, fire, first responders and other service personnel and one guest will be admitted free with I.D.
