Morningside Tabbed as Preseason Favorite for 2013 GPAC Football
Football - Thu, Aug. 1, 2013

The Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) held their fourteenth (14th) annual football media day on Thursday, August 1, at the Convention Center in Sioux City, Iowa.  The day featured comments from all ten of the league's football coaches in preparation for the 2013 season. 

One of the highlights of the day is the release of the preseason coaches' poll.  Morningside is preseason pick to win the GPAC championship.  The Mustangs totaled 80 points and eight (8) first place votes after winning the league in 2012 and advancing to the NAIA National Championship Game in Rome, Georgia.  Northwestern, who advanced to the NAIA Football Championship Series (FCS) first round last fall, was picked second for 2013 with 72 points and one first place vote.  Doane picked up the final first place vote and 61 points in being picked third in the balloting.  Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own team.
