There wasn’t a lot of movement after the opening weekend but there was some in the Muscle Milk and JJHuddle Division II Power Poll. Anderson lost and so did Tallmadge. See where they are now and how may have replaced them…
The Power Polls…are back. JJHuddle’s immensely popular
rankings continue today with the release of the latest Division II poll.
Also this year, JJHuddle is proud to announce that Muscle Milk has
become a co-sponsor of the rankings.
New polls will be unveiled on site every
Tuesday-Wednesday during the season.
