Pollsters Like CAA Teams But Not UMaine

The Sports Network pre-season FCS football poll is heavy with CAA teams but Maine did not get a single vote. The North Dakota State Bison are ranked #1 in the country and why not – the Bison have won two straight national titles.

The Sports Network poll voters are sports information directors, writers and broadcasters and others involved in FCS football.

Villanova is the CAA’s highest ranked team at #5. UNH is the other team in the top 10 at #10 in the poll.

UMaine plays at Villanova on October 26th and the Black Bears will be at UNH November 23rd in the regular season finale.

Also on Maine’s schedule is FBS oponent Northwestern on September 21st. Sports Illustrated has just ranked Wildcats #22 in the nation.
