Colonels ranked No. 23 in Coaches Top 25 poll

Colonels ranked No. 23 in Coaches Top 25 poll

THIBODAUX, La. – For the first time since 2007, the Nicholls State University football team cracked the national rankings as the Colonels came in at No. 23 in the FCS Coaches Top 25 Poll.

Nicholls totaled 76 votes in the poll to move up five spots. The Colonels also received an increase in votes in the STATS FCS Poll, finishing with 251 to rank just outside of the top 25 at No. 28. Nicholls has been receiving votes in both since the initial preseason polls were released.

The ranking is the first for the program in 10 years. Nicholls last held a spot in the top 25 in the media poll on Oct. 29, 2007 as the Colonels were ranked No. 25. That team featured two future NFL Draft picks – defensive backs Kareem Moore and Lardarius Webb.
