WACO, Texas (GoThunderWolves.com - Oct. 14, 2013) - With two losses in the top five this weekend by top-ranked Valdosta State and fourth-ranked West Texas A&M, CSU-Pueblo inched up to the third spot nationally in the latest AFCA Division II football poll, released Monday.
CSU-Pueblo, which had been ranked 5th in the nation for each of the past five weeks, rose to the third-spot by virtue of its 51-42 win over then-19th-ranked Chadron State as well as the two top-five losses.
