Bulldogs crack rankings again

The University of Redlands football team is back in one national football ranking, cracking the American Football Coaches Association poll at No. 25.

The Bulldogs (5-1) were as high as No. 14 in that same poll, the highest ranking the team has ever achieved. But it fell out of that ranking after losing to Occidental 28-15 three weks ago.

Coach Mike Maynard’s squad is coming off a 48-0 homecoming thrashing of Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. The Bulldogs looked a little more like themselves with a punishing defense and efficient offense.

Next up is a 1 p.m. game on Saturday at Pomona-Pitzer.
