Subject: Ouachita Football Cracks Top 10 in AFCA Coaches Poll

ARKADELPHIA, Ark.- The Ouachita Tigers continued their climb up the AFCA Coaches Poll this week, cracking the Top 10 for the first time in program history. Their move from No. 11 to No. 10 this week comes after a dominating 58-7 victory over the University of Arkansas-Monticello.

In Ouachita's 58-7 victory, the defense impressed, recording five interceptions, two of which resulted in defensive touchdowns. The Tigers slipped past Missouri Western State, who fell from No. 4 to No. 16 following a 31-30 loss to Missouri Southern State.

Along with the Tigers, two other GAC foes stayed ranked this week, with Henderson St. at No. 12 and Harding at No. 25. Southern Arkansas received votes in the poll as well.

The fact that Harding stayed in the Top 25 sets up a nationally-ranked match-up for Ouachita this weekend, when they host the Bisons. That game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
