INDIANAPOLIS – The University of Indianapolis football squad garnered inclusion Wednesday on what could be the first of many preseason poll appearances. The College Football America 2020 Yearbook Division II Preseason Top 30 was released this week, with the Greyhounds coming in at No. 14 as the highest of three Great Lakes Valley Conference schools on the list.
 
Led by second-year head coach Chris Keevers, UIndy welcomes nine offensive returning starters and seven defensive from a team that made its third consecutive playoff appearance in 2019. Last year’s club ranked in the top five in the nation in a number of categories, including scoring offense (2nd), rushing defense (2nd), turnover margin (3rd), time of possession (4th) and punt return average (4th).
 
UIndy is one of 10 Super Region Three teams to appear in the preseason poll, including five in the top 14. Ferris State leads the way in the fourth spot, followed by Northwest Missouri State at No. 9 and Ouachita Baptist, Central Missouri and UIndy in succession at Nos. 12-14. Fellow-GLVC-members Truman and Lindenwood were ranked 21st and 27th, respectively.
 
Thanks to recent changes in the schedule, UIndy opens the 2020 campaign at home versus SR1-foe and former GLIAC-rival Ohio Dominican on Thursday, Sept. 3. The Hounds also have non-conference contests at Hillsdale (Sept. 12) and at Kentucky Wesleyan (Nov. 14). Those contests sandwich seven GLVC matchups, including a Homecoming tilt versus McKendree Oct. 10.
