BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Florida Tech (4-0, 2-0) moved up three spots to No. 16 in the latest AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 poll on Monday.
The boost comes from Saturday’s 28-7 victory by Florida Tech over Presbyterian on the road.
After six top 25 upsets this past weekend, the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 poll changed a bit with three new teams entering the top 25, including North Carolina-Pembroke and California (Pa.). Neither of those teams have been in the rankings since 2014, with the Braves last appearance on August 18, 2014, and the Vulcans on October 27, 2014.
