Garden City, KS – After a 76-24 victory over Fort Scott on Saturday, the Broncbusters moved up one spot in the latest NJCAA rankings, coming in at No. 2 behind Snow.
“We’re not satisfied where we are,” Head Coach, Tom Minnick said. “There is so much more work that has to be done. No. 2 is great, but it’s only week two.”
There was a bit of a shakeup in the top five thanks to Jones knocking off previous No. 2 Northwest Mississippi on Thursday. Kilgore slid up to No. 3, Iowa Western was fourth, and Mississippi Gulf Coast, who barely squeaked by Northeast, was fifth. More notable is that Independence is now sixth and Coffeyville, which upset defending National Champion Hutchinson in week one, made an appearance in the top 10 at No. 9. The Pirates visit Broncbuster Stadium on Sept. 25.
Meantime for the Broncbusters, they have now been ranked in 48 straight polls and 55 out of the last 59. This is their highest ranking since Dec. 3, 2018, when Garden City finished second in the final poll.
The Broncbusters are back on the road on Saturday against Highland. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. You can catch the game on 99.9 “The Rock” with Pre-Game Coverage to begin at 12:30 p.m.
