Doane Moves to No. 17

Following their 27-3 victory over rival Nebraska Wesleyan this past Saturday, the Doane football team moved up four spots in the NAIA poll to No. 17.  The Tigers, off to their best start since 2001, are 4-0 entering this weekend's match-up with No. 14 Midland University.  The game will take place during Homecoming activities on October 1.

The Tigers have a daunting task ahead of them over their next three games.  Following their match-up with the Warriors, Doane will take on No. 10 Morningside (Oct. 8) and No. 18 Dakota Wesleyan (Oct. 22).
