MANSFIELD, Mass. - After posting five straight wins on their way to an NE-10 title, the LIU Post Football team has been selected as the NE-10 Team of the Month.
The Pioneers were awarded the honor following a vote the NE-10 conducted on its social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter), in which more than 500 people voted. They become the second consecutive winner from LIU Post, as the field hockey team was the recipient of NE-10 Team of the Month in September.
During the month, LIU Post won all five teams it took the field in maintaining their unblemished season. They outscored their opponents 169-85, and kicked off the month with a 19-18 win on the road over defending conference champion Assumption.
LIU Post remains unbeaten and advanced to the 2nd Round of the 2016 NCAA Football Championship with a 48-41 win over Winston-Salem State on Saturday. They play host to Shepherd University on Saturday afternoon.
