UTC is No.13 in This Week's Football Poll

No.13 in Sports Network Top-25

Monday, September 1, 2014

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team moved up a spot in the national polls, despite dropping a tough 20-16 battle at Central Michigan last week.  The Mocs are No. 13 in the Sports Network Top-25 and No. 15 in the FCS Coaches Poll this week. 

The No. 13 national mark ties the highest ranking for UTC in the Russ Huesman era (since 2009).  The Mocs were also No. 13 in the Sports Network poll when they lost 14-12 at No. 3 Appalachian State on Sept. 19, 2011.

The Mocs have cracked the top-10 three times in school history, twice in 1991 and once more in 1992.  UTC’s highest ranking was No. 9 following a 35-20 win at Boise State on Sept. 5, 1991.    

Chattanooga opens its 2014 home schedule against No. 9 Jacksonville State this weekend.  The Gamecocks are the highest ranked non-conference opponent to visit Finley Stadium.  JSU was up to No. 6 in the preseason, but fell slightly after a 45-7 loss at No. 8 Michigan State on Friday.
