BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Prairie View A&M University Panther football team made its first appearance in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) poll this year with a No. 25 national ranking in The Sports Network FCS Top-25 poll.
After narrowly missing the Top 25 the past few weekends, the Panthers garnered a total of 269 points in this week’s poll to debut at No. 25. The ranking marks the first time in program history the Panthers have been ranked during the season. Last season, the Panthers were ranked 25th in The Sports Network’s final poll of the year.
In the weekly Sheridan Broadcast Network Black College Football Poll, Prairie View currently sits second behind the Bulldogs of South Carolina State University.
The Panthers are off this week and will return to action on Saturday, Nov. 7 at 2:00 p.m. against Alabama A&M University at Blackshear Field.
