BALTIMORE, MD – For the second consecutive week the Johns Hopkins football team is ranked eighth in the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Poll. The Blue Jays also jumped one spot to number 11 in this week's D3football.com Poll. The #11 ranking in the D3football.com poll matches JHU's highest-ever ranking in that poll; the Blue Jays finished the 2009 season as the 11th-ranked team in the D3football.com rankings.

The number eight ranking in the AFCA Poll is tied for the highest in school history as JHU finished the 2009 season ranked eighth after making a run to the NCAA Quarterfinals and moved to that spot for the first time this season last week. This is the ninth time the Blue Jays have been ranked in the top 10 since the poll debuted in 1999.

Defending national champion Mount Union tops the AFCA and D3football.com Polls again this week. Mount Union has been ranked number one in both polls throughout the season.

Johns Hopkins (9-0, 8-0 Centennial) clinched the Centennial Conference's automatic bid to the upcoming NCAA Playoffs with a 45-30 victory against Franklin & Marshall last Saturday. The Blue Jays will travel to rival McDaniel (2-7, 2-6 CC) on Saturday and will then learn their NCAA first round opponent when the bracket is announced on Sunday, November 17 (6 pm).
