Briar Cliff football picked fifth in GPAC coaches’ and media polls

Briar Cliff football picked fifth in GPAC coaches’ and media polls

The GPAC held its 20th annual Football Media Day at the Delta Hotels South Sioux City Riverfront Conference Center in South Sioux City, Nebraska Tuesday. The event featured season outlooks from each of the league’s head coaches as well as the release of the preseason coaches’ and media polls. Briar Cliff, which finished sixth last season, was picked to finish fifth in the GPAC in both polls.

Coach Dennis Wagner‘s team earned a 6-5 overall record in 2018, which was the first winning season in school history, and went undefeated on its home turf. The Chargers will open the 2019 season at Waldorf on August 31 and will play their first home game at Memorial Field against Dakota State on September 7.

The full polls can be found below. The full story from the GPAC can be found here.
