Football owns nation's longest streak of Top-25 appearances


DURHAM, N.H.
– With a No. 14 ranking in The Sports Network FCS Top 25 and a No. 17 ranking in this week's FCS Coaches Poll, the University of New Hampshire football team's 118 consecutive weeks in the polls dating back to Sept. 13, 2004, has become the longest streak in the nation.

Montana, which had been ranked for 195 straight weeks, dropped out of the Top 25 for the first time since Nov. 2, 1998, following a 32-26 loss at Eastern Washington on Saturday.

The Wildcats (3-2, 1-1 CAA) knocked now-No.16/15 Delaware from the ranks of the unbeaten with Saturday's 34-14 triumph at Cowell Stadium that snapped the Blue Hens' seven-game winning streak.

UNH will visit the Georgia Dome in Atlanta to tangle with Georgia State (0-5, 0-0 CAA) on Saturday, Oct. 6, at 3:30p.m. For more information, visit www.unhwildcats.com.
