UNC Pembroke moves up to #16 National Football Poll

LIBERTY, Mo. – The UNC Pembroke football team continued to make moves in the national polls on Tuesday as the Braves crawled up one spot to No. 16 in the latest top 25 poll by D2Football.com, the online publication announced.
The Braves (3-0) were one of just four NCAA Super Region 2 teams included in Tuesday’s release and joined top-ranked Valdosta State (2-0), No. 13 Carson-Newman (3-0) and No. 14 West Alabama (2-1) in the poll. Winston-Salem State (2-1), a week one victim of the Braves in Pembroke, inched up one spot to No. 18 following a 34-13 victory over then-No. 18 Tuskegee last week.
UNCP will be in action again on Saturday when it returns home to tangle with region and U.S. 74 nemesis Wingate (1-1) in a 2 p.m. Parents Weekend contest at Grace P. Johnson Stadium. Tickets can still be purchased by calling (910) 521-6361.

ECU Pirates SUSPEND Nose tackle Terry Williams

GREENVILLE, N.C. – East Carolina junior nose tackle Terry Williams has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team policy according to an announcement from head football coach Ruffin McNeill Tuesday afternoon.

“The expectation for every member of our program has always been that they must earn the right to represent East Carolina University and that they will be held accountable for their actions on and off the field,” McNeill said. The fourth-year ECU head coach did not address specifics of the suspension, but added that Williams “did not adhere to the conduct standards we have in place.”

Williams, a two-year starter on the Pirates’ front line, has recorded nine tackles and half a sack in his first three games of the 2013 season. McNeill indicated junior Chrishon Rose would take over the starting role in Williams’ absence.

East Carolina (2-1) will return to action Saturday when it faces North Carolina (1-2) at Kenan Stadium beginning at 12:30 p.m.
