After a 61-0 blowout of Austin College last Saturday, the Berry College football team jumped to No. 14 in the latest D3football.com Top 25, the highest ranking in program history.

Berry is now 5-0 overall and the only remaining undefeated team in the Southern Athletic Association (SAA) at 3-0. The Vikings have also won 20-straight regular-season games dating back to 2016.

It was just the second shutout in program history, as the Vikings set a slew of program records against Austin College. Records included points scored (61), touchdowns scored (8) and touchdown passes thrown (6). Tate Adcock has now thrown 15 touchdown passes on the year, ranking second most all-time in Berry history for a single season.

The Vikings return home this Saturday to host Sewanee on Berry College Mountain Day. Kickoff is set for 6:00 p.m. on Oct. 6.

The D3football.com Top 25 is voted on by a panel of 25 coaches, Sports Information Directors and media members from across the country, and is published weekly. Points are awarded on a 25-24-23-22-etc. basis.
