Mary Hardin-Baylor Continues to Impress

The No. 3 Mary Hardin-Baylor (Texas) Crusaders have continued their winning tradition with a strong first half to the 2015 season, defeating Belhaven (Miss.), 59-13, and heading into conference play this weekend with an impressive resume. The rest of the Top 5 also remained the same as No. 1 Wisconsin-Whitewater, No. 2 Mount Union (Ohio) and No. 4 Linfield (Ore.) all had impressive victories. Due to the weather in Deleware, No. 5 Wesley’s game was delayed until this afternoon.

  There was some shake-up in the rest of the Top 25, though, as six ranked teams lost their matchups and three new teams joined the fray. While No. 25 Wittenberg (Ohio) is rejoining the ranks after a week-long hiatus and No. 24 Concordia-Moorhead (Minn.) is a familiar face, this is the first time No. 23 Gustavus Adolphus (Minn.) has been ranked since being ranked No. 25 in the second week of 1999.
