•The Sporting News has released its 2015 FCS preseason poll and no Ivy League, Patriot League, Northeast Conference or Pioneer Football League shows up. New Hampshire, which took a big graduating hit, comes in at No. 18. Villanova, ranked fourth, is the only other northeastern team to appear in the ranking.
•The Ivy League champion Dartmouth softball team will play at Florida State in the NCAA Tournament today a half hour after the conclusion of the South Carolina and Central Florida game that starts at 10 a.m. The games were moved up because of an unfavorable weather forecast. If you can access ESPN3 on your computer, check for the Dartmouth game starting around noon or a little after.
Depending on how today's games turn out, the Big Green will resume double-elimination action tomorrow at noon, 2:30 or 5 p.m.
