Mavs drop in regional rankings

Colorado Mesa’s loss to Western Colorado dropped the Mavericks to No. 9 in Monday’s NCAA Division II Super Region 4 rankings. Seven teams receive bids to the regional playoffs, putting the Mavericks (6-2, 5-2 RMAC) still in must-win mode, but they also need teams ranked above them to lose in the final two weeks of the season.

Colorado Mines moved up to No. 1 in the region, with Western Colorado climbing to No. 6.

The Mavericks also dropped out of the national rankings after their loss, receiving 16 votes. Western is No. 18 and Mines No. 13.

Four CMU players landed on the RMAC All-Academic football team, released Monday.

Punter Blake Moore, a junior with a 3.73 GPA in finance, made the special teams unit. Linemen Torren Calhoun (4.0, entrepreneurship) and Logan Bayus (3.52, heath & fitness promotion) made the defensive unit, with lineman Jack Metcalf (3.47, energy and land management) on the offensive team.
