Before the Grand Valley State football team began its season, the team was highly regarded around the Division II world and earned the No. 2 ranking in the country, voted by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA). However, after the Lakers were upset by unranked University of Indianapolis Thursday, Aug. 31, GVSU football’s overall ranking fell all the way down to the No. 14 spot in the AFCA rankings.

GVSU soccer adapting as a younger team

Last season, the Grand Valley State women’s soccer team’s season came to an end in the NCAA National Championship with a 3-2 loss to Western Washington. The Lakers ended their three-year winning streak and said goodbye to six pivotal seniors. Once the season ended and old players moved on to new experiences, the Lakers were ready to bring in and showcase new talent in the form of 12 freshmen and two transfers. GVSU soccer now has the task of adapting as a younger team.
