On Friday the NWCA released their second coaches poll and UCO dropped to #6. Things were shaken up in the top six as Lindenwood, Gannon, and McKendree, all passed up the Bronchos on their move out of the top five.
- 133-Thaddeus Long-#11
- 141-Nate Keim-#10
- 149-Brik Filippo-#7
- 157-Ty Lucas-#8
- 165-Dayton Garret-#11
- 174-Wyatt Jordan-#8
- 184-Heath Gray-#1
- 197-Dalton Abney-#3
In the individual rankings, Thaddeus Long enters 133 at #11, Nate Keim stays at #10, Brik Fillipo, who has not been the starter at 149 for most of the season, moved up to #7, Ty Lucas dropped from #2 to #8, and Dayton Garret dropped from #9 to #11. Wyatt Jordan entered the rankings for the first time at #8, and Heath Gray and Dalton Abney both stayed steady at #1 and #3.
These rankings dropped occurred despite UCO going 5-0 to this point in the season and outscoring opponents 217-20. This doesn’t include their 37-6 exhibition win over NEO.
UCO was scheduled to have two duals this weekend with Fort Hays State and Nebraska Kearney. The duals were postponed to a later date.
