WVU Again Leads Lambert Voting

The Eastern College Athletic Conference, in conjunction with the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority (NJSEA), has announced the Lambert Football Poll presented by FieldTurf Tarkett for the week of November 20. The poll will be a weekly thoughout the season with the final poll released the first week of January.

The ECAC will conduct the weekly poll in each of the four divisions (Division I-A, I-AA, II and III) and the final poll distributed in early January will determine the trophy winners. The teams will be presented with their awards at the Eastern College Football Awards Banquet at the Pegasus Restaurant at the Meadowlands Sports Complex.

Established in 1936 as the "Lambert Trophy" to recognize supremacy in eastern college football, the award has since grown to recognize the best team in the East in Divisions I-A. The Lambert Cup will be awarded to Divisions I-AA, II and III teams.

The territory includes New York, New Jersey, New England and Pennsylvania while teams in the bordering states of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia and the District of Columbia qualify if half of their schedule features eligible teams.
