AFCA Preseason Poll
Angelo State checks in at #13, while Texas A&M-Commerce is #22.  West Texas A&M, Midwestern State and Tarleton State also are receiving votes.

Minnesota-Mankato, last year's runner-up is the choice at #1, with defending champion Colorado State Pueblo right behind at #2.  Minnesota-Duluth, West Georgia and Northwest Missouri round out the top five.

In what could be the top matchup of the season, #1 and #3 square off in week one in Mankato.

Good news LSC fans, it appears that Scripps has changed their online access again, this time in our favor.  So, for now at least, we have some LSC news to share.  Enjoy it while it lasts...
