Wesley College's football team has been ranked fifth by both Lindy's Sports and the Sporting News in their annual college football 2014 preview magazines which hit newsstands across the country earlier this month.
The top three teams in the Top 25 Poll were identical in both publications with defending National Champion Wisconsin-Whitewater ranked first, followed by Mount Union and Linfield. The Sporting News places Mary Hardin-Baylor fourth, just ahead of the Wolverines with Bethel sitting sixth while Lindy's has Bethel ranked fourth and the Crusaders sixth.
The Wolverines open the season at home on September 6 against Thomas More, who is ranked 14th by the Sporting News and 16th by Lindy's. Rowan is also on Wesley's schedule this year on September 20, which will be a preview of what will be a New Jersey Athletic Conference matchup in 2015.
