FULTON – Itawamba Community College dropped to No. 20 in the latest National Junior College Athletic Association football poll after losing to Coahoma Community College 47-41 in double overtime on Saturday.

The Indians (5-2, 3-1 MACJC North) were one of three top-20 teams to lose to unranked opponents last week.

East Mississippi moved into the No. 2 spot with Georgia Military holding strong as the nation’s top team. Copiah-Lincoln jumped two spots to No. 5, while Mississippi Gulf Coast moved up a spot to No. 7. Hinds took over the No. 16 spot after being unranked last week.

ICC will look to rebound Thursday night as it plays host to Northeast Mississippi (3-4, 3-1 MACJC North) with a spot in the playoffs on the line.

“Northeast is all we are focused on right now,” ICC head football coach Jon Williams said. “We have to get back to playing the type of football we were earlier this season to get back in the win column and hopefully have a shot at making the playoffs.”

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. at Eaton Field. The game can be heard on WAFM 95.7 (Amory) and will be streamed live at LetsGoICC.com.
