The MACJC North Division champion Northwest Rangers capped a stellar season with a No. 6 ranking in the final NJCAA Top 20 Football Poll of the season. It was the Rangers’ first Top 10 finish since the 1999 season when they also finished No. 6 in the nation. (December 9, 2010, Page 6)
A stranglehold on the MACJC North Division standings is what the No. 9 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers secured Thursday night with a 26-6 win over Northeast.
The Rangers (5-0 overall, 3-0 in the North) battered the Tigers (3-2, 2-1) from start to finish by forcing six turnovers and holding them to just 117 total yards. NWCC, which has now won five straight in the series, is now plus 10 in the turnover column and only allowed 32 points in three games to North Division teams. (October 1, 2010, Page 6A)
