A win over Pearl River on the road last week not only got the Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers off to a great start this year, it jumped them up to No. 15 in the national rankings as well.
NWCC (1-0 overall) enters tonight’s home opener with East Central (0-1) ranked No. 15 in the latest NJCAA football poll. The Rangers were one of only two teams to win from the MACJC’s North Division last week, while East Central was the only other team from South Division to lose, falling 34-6 to Northeast.
