MSU Football Ranked #19 in Pre-Season Poll

The Division II Pre-Season Football Coaches' Poll is out, and the Midwestern State Mustangs are ranked #19 in the nation.

It's only the second time they've been ranked in the pre-season poll, the last being in 2007.

But before you get too excited, remember that they're in the very tough Lone Star Conference.

Three LSC teams are in the nation's top sixteen, with Abilene Christian ranked 7th, West Texas A&M 11th and Texas A&M-Kingsville sixteenth.

Players report for fall practice on Wednesday, with the first practice on Thursday evening.

The Mustangs' regular-season schedule opens up at 7 PM on September 2 against New Mexico Highlands in Las Vegas, N.M.
