Lake Erie College facing five teams receiving votes in preseason Top 25

Lake Erie College might need to upend one or two solid teams to post its first winning season since joining the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

Five teams receiving votes in the preseason American Football Coaches Association Division II Coaches Poll appear on Lake Erie College's schedule: No. 9 Ashland, No. 22 Saginaw Valley State, No. 37 Ferris State, No. 47 Ohio Dominican and No. 56 Wayne State.

All five teams are GLIAC members. Eight GLIAC schools received votes in the poll. Lake Erie College, which went 3-8 last season, doesn't face No. 14 Grand Valley State, No. 30 Michigan Tech and No. 41 Hillsdale.

Six of the eight members from the unforgiving North Division received votes. Lake Erie College plays in the seven-team South Division, which includes NCAA playoff qualifier Ashland.

The GLIAC announces its preseason poll Monday.
