2010 CAA Football Weekly Roundup – 11.4

Nov 4, 2010, 11:48 AM EDT

Weekly roundup time here on the blog and there is plenty of info below to help you get ready for the weekend. Our television promo is above so be sure to watch it so you know where to catch two of our five games this weekend.

We posted a new fan poll earlier today. It is located to the right as well as below…If the season ended before this weekend’s games which of the league’s 10 teams would make the playoffs? You can select as many as you think would get it…it isn’t a one-pick poll! This poll will close Saturday at 10 a.m., so come back then to check out the results.

We need some more participation in these polls! Only 15 votes were cast in this week’s Player of the Week poll!  Thanks to those who did cast their vote and congrats to UMass’ Tyler Holmes who logged 33% to win the recognition.  Pay attention to the games this weekend and we’ll post another Player of the Week poll Sunday…come back then to vote on your top performer.

A total of seven CAA Football student-athletes earned weekly College Football Performance Awards (scroll down to find the FCS listings), including the four the league office honored with its awards.
