Mocs In Final Top-25 for the First Time Since 1984

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team finished the 2013 season ranked in the top-25 of both major polls that were released this week.  The Mocs are No. 23 in The Sports Network Top-25 and No. 25 in the final Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Coaches poll. 

This is the first time Chattanooga is ranked in a season-ending top-25 since earning a No. 17 spot in the final NCAA Division I-AA Top-20 in 1984.  UTC was also No. 17 in the final 1982 poll, the first year of an official I-AA poll.  North Dakota State capped the season as the wire-to-wire top-ranked team after winning its third straight FCS Football Championship on Saturday. 

The Mocs had a number of firsts in 2013, finishing with an 8-4 overall record and a share of the SoCon title at 6-2.  It was UTC’s most wins ever in SoCon play and its first league title since 1984.  The eight wins are the most since 1980 and Chattanooga swept the SoCon Coach of the Year (Russ Huesman), Offensive Player of the Year (Jacob Huesman) and Defensive Player of the Year (Davis Tull) for the first time.

The Big Sky had the most Top 25 teams in The Sports Network Poll with five.  This ranking is selected by a panel of FCS SIDs and media.  The CAA, as well as Missouri Valley, Ohio Valley, Southern and Southland conferences, had three teams each. The Big South and MEAC had two teams each, and the Patriot League one.

The FCS Coaches Poll is based exclusively on a voting panel of head coaches in the FCS under the cooperation of the Collegiate Commissioners Association (CCA) and the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and is administered by the Southern Conference.
