UMD Receives More Division II Honors

The UMD Bulldogs continue to rake in preseason honors in Division II. The Bulldogs are just a few days away from their season opener, and D2Football.com has released their preseason All-Americans.

Two UMD stars made the cut. Here is the information from UMD:

The last of the major preseason football honors were announced today -- the 2010 season kicks off in just a few days, after all -- with the unveiling of the D2Football.com Preseason All-America Team. Among those on the 25-member first team were University of Minnesota Duluth senior running back Isaac Odim and senior inside linebacker Robbie Aurich, who were named the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference North Division Preseason Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year, respectively, earlier this month. Odim, the school's all-time rushing and scoring leader, was a second team pick one year ago.

The two-time defending NSIC champioon Bulldogs checked in at No. 6 in the D2Football.com Top 25 Preseason Poll, which was also released today and will take on No. 5 Central Washington University in their 2010 season opener this Saturday in Ellensburg, Wash.

You can hear Saturday's game with Chris Nettleton on The Fan 1490 and at www.fan1490.com.
