Jacksonville moves up in the FCS polls
The JU football team moved up one spot in both major Football Championship Subdivision polls released on Monday.
The Dolphins (9-1, 7-0 PFL) rose to No. 22 in the Fathead.com/Sports Network poll and jumped up to No. 24 in the FCS Coaches’ Poll.
Jacksonville has won a school-record eight in a row, which is tied for the second-longest active winning streak in the country. The Dolphins have won 10 in a row in PFL play, dating back to last season, which is the fourth longest streak in league history.
The Dolphins continue to have one of the nation’s top-ranked offenses. JU leads the country in scoring offense (43.3 points per game), second in total offense (495.4 yards per game) and third in passing offense (306.2 yards per game).
Jacksonville’s defense ranks 13th nationally against the run, allowing 99.5 yards per game, and has lifted the Dolphins to fourth place in turnover margin at +1.3 per game.
Junior Josh McGregor leads the country in passing efficiency with a rating of 172.75. Senior Rudell Small is 21st nationally in rushing yards per game (103.1), 10th in scoring (9.2 points per game) and 25th in all-purpose yards (135.2 per game).
The Dolphins wrap up their regular season on Saturday at home against Campbell as 19 seniors will play their final home game at D.B. Milne Field. Kickoff is set for Noon.
