The first New England Division III football poll is out and the Husson Eagles are very familiar with two of the top teams.

The WPI Engineers are ranked #1 in New England while UMass Dartmouth is ranked #6.

The Eagles lost to WPI Saturday afternoon 31-12 and in week one Husson lost in overtime at UMass Dartmouth. The opposition is 6-0 so far this season.

After one more non-conference game at SUNY Morrisville, the Eagles begin play in the Commonwealth Coast Conference. That's when they meet # Endicott and #4 Western New England
