Mocs fall in football polls

October 3rd, 2011 by John Frierson in Local Regional News

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga dropped six spots to No. 23 in the Football Championship Subdivision coaches' poll and fell eight places to No. 24 in The Sports Network's media poll, released today.

UTC fell after last Saturday's stunning 28-27 home loss to The Citadel, which trailed the Mocs (2-3, 0-2 Southern Conference) 27-0 midway through the third quarter.

The Mocs visit top-ranked Georgia Southern (4-0, 3-0) on Saturday. The Eagles received 26 of 28 first-place votes in the coaches' poll and 128 of 157 in the Sports Network poll.

In the coaches' poll, Wofford jumped two spots to No. 4 following its win last week against Appalachian State, which fell five places to No. 8. The Terriers are No. 5 in the Sports Network poll and ASU is No. 8.
