CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charleston Southern moved up one spot to No. 8 in the latest STATS FCS Poll, released Monday. The Bucs held at No. 9 in the FCS Coaches Poll, marking the sixth consecutive week and eighth time overall they have been ranked in the top ten of both major national polls.
CSU remains the only Big South Conference team to crack either poll this season. Liberty received 24 votes in this week's STATS Poll and 23 in the Coaches Poll. The Bucs have been ranked for 29 weeks during Jamey Chadwell's four-year tenure as head coach after spending just week in the polls in program history previously.
CSU won its fourth straight game on Saturday, dispatching of Bucknell, 49-28. Next up is a three-game closing stretch in Big South Conference play, starting with a visit from Gardner-Webb Saturday. Kickoff at Buccaneer Field is scheduled for 12 noon and the game will be broadcast live on the American Sports Network (ASN).
