Delaware Valley, which went 9-2 and reached the NCAA Division III playoffs last year, is the lone Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) school in Lindy's Top 25. The publication provides one line of information on all of its top 25 teams and writer Dominic DiRienzo stated the following about the Aggies: "21. Delaware Valley – Rashaad Lighty (8.5 sacks) and DelVal will be stout on defense."

In the D3football.com preseason poll, the Aggies received 34 points to put them fifth in the "other receiving votes" category. Fellow MAC schools Widener University (12th) and Lycoming College (received votes) are also in the poll.

Delaware Valley's first opponent for the 2015 campaign, Montclair State University, received 25 points in the D3football.com rankings. The Aggies, who earned a 30-20 triumph at Montclair State in last year's opener, will host the Red Hawks on Saturday, September 5 (1:00 p.m.).
