Despite losses to nationally-ranked teams in each of its last two outings, the Hudson Valley Community College (3-2) football team is ranked No. 17 in the latest NJCAA poll.

Hudson Valley has committed 12 turnovers over the last two weeks, including a season-high seven turnovers in a 17-7 loss at Erie Community College last Saturday.

Hudson Valley will host Morrisville State College (3-2) at 1 p.m. this Saturday, October 8.
