WACO, Texas - The Arkansas Tech Wonder Boys football team have received five votes in the American Football Coaches Association Top-25 Poll, the AFCA announced Monday.
The Wonder Boys receive votes after a 38-10 season-opening win over Northwestern Oklahoma State last Thursday.
Tech is one of three Great American Conference schools to either rank in the top 25 or receive votes in the week one poll. Preseason favorite Henderson State climbed from No. 13 to No. 9 after an 82-10 win over Southern Nazarene on Saturday, while this week's opponent, Southwestern Oklahoma, received one vote in the top 25 after its 27-23 win over Harding on Thursday.
The Wonder Boys return to action on Saturday, Sept. 14, hosting Southwestern Oklahoma at Thone Stadium at Buerkle Field. A 6 p.m. kickoff is scheduled.
