The Mules went 9-3 last season with a win in the Mineral Water Bowl over Minnesota-Duluth. Central Missouri has won eight or more games in each of the last four seasons, including a 9-3 record in both 2016 and 2017.
Earlier this summer, the Mules were picked to finish third in the MIAA by both the coaches and the media, behind Fort Hays State and Northwest Missouri. Those two teams tied for fifth in the AFCA poll. Texas A&M-Commerce, West Florida, Minnesota State and Indiana (PA) make up the rest of the top-five. Also from the MIAA, Pittsburg State, Missouri Western, Emporia State, Central Oklahoma and Washburn all received at least one vote in the poll.
