NCAA DIVISION 3 FOOTBALL PRESEASON TOP 25

Well, the NAIA will start week 2 of their football season this coming Thursday night and D3 will begin their season this Saturday. The time seemed ripe to take a look at the Preseason D3 Top 25. It will surprise nobody familiar with Division 3 football that Wisconsin-Whitewater and Mt Union are ranked 1 and 2. For the past 5 years in a row the D3 Championship Game has been between these 2 teams when the dust settles in the playoffs. Yes, playoff-hungry 1A football fans will revel in the fact that the lower divisions settle it on the field in a playoff and not with the BCS system. Anyway, some people love the fact that the Warhawks and Purple Raiders have owned the playoff game for half a decade and some find it boring. Others insist if the other teams don’t like it one of them can rise up and actually beat one of these 2 in the playoffs. To the Top 25. I threw in their helmets, too, since part of this blog’s purpose is to familiarize new fans with these teams.
