Chattanooga Mocs Move Up to Number 4 in Latest FCS Rankings

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team grabbed its highest national ranking since joining the Football Championship Subdivision, according to the two polls officially recognized by the NCAA released today.

The Mocs are No. 4 in both the STAS FCS Top 25 and the FCS Coaches Poll.  This is the sixth week in a row Chattanooga is ranked in the top 10.  UTC has been ranked in the top 25 for 29 consecutive weeks, dating back to Nov. 4, 2013.  That is the ninth longest active streak in the FCS.

UTC has been among the top 25 for 34 weeks in the Russ Huesman era (since 2009).  The Mocs are 20-12 when ranked under Huesman.

Chattanooga was also in the top-10 in the national small college rankings in the 1960s, reaching as high as No. 3 on Nov. 1, 1968.  This was before making the move to NCAA Division I in 1977 and prior to the FCS rankings that began in 1982. 

Up next is Homecoming on Saturday against Western Carolina.  Kickoff is set for 2:00 p.m. (E.D.T.) at Finley Stadium.
