Mississippi Gulf Coast Bulldogs Ranked #1 in NJCAA Poll

In the first week of the Football Computer Rankings system coach Steve Campbell's Bulldogs jumped into the number one slot.  The FCR is worth 33% of the poll with the other 67% coming from the human voters.

It's based on: Winning percentage (50%), Opponents winning percentage (25%), and Opponents-Opponents winning percentage (25%).

Coach Campbell said, "It's great to be number one, but the main goal is to be in that spot at the end of the season. Right now our main focus is Jones this Saturday.  None of the rankings matter if we don't take care of business on the field."

Defending NJCAA National Champion East Mississippi slipped from number 1 to number 4 in the FCR since the combined record of their opponents is 1-7.
