L: Macalester  7-38

Nonconference Record: 6-5
Good Wins: There were a few marquee match-ups in the Northwest, and the conference came out no worse for wear.  Carroll built up a 20-0 lead on Lyco and settled in for the victory, and PacLu went up 31-0 on Ottawa before doing the same.  L&C showed flashes of potential in their win.
Bad Wins: Whitworth had to hang on for dear life, while Willamette never really had control against a team they should have beaten by a wider margin.
Good Losses: Menlo.  The Oaks hung in there against Eau Claire, playing a superior foe nearly to a standstill.
Bad Losses: It is one thing to lose to Whitewater; most teams do.  It is yet another thing to not come with your A game.  Linfield did not, and Linfield was steamrolled.  Puget Sound managed to get outscored 41-6 from the middle of the 2nd quarter onward.

Nonconference Record: 7-3
Good Wins: St Ambrose fell behind Union 14-0, then scored 31 straight points.  Northwestern College and Grand View did not dominate, yet both were up against feisty opponents.  Heck, even Belleville and Hannibal won on opening week.
Bad Wins: William Penn struggled and trailed late against a team they should not have struggled against.
Good Losses: None
Bad Losses: While it was generally a good opening week for the EPAC, it was not without concerns for a few programs.  Trinity, Robert Morris and St Francis all got trampled, making all three of the EPAC losses bad.

Prairie

Group XXV

Nonconference Record: 6-5
Good Wins: Morningside trailed most of the game against Central Iowa, and won in two overtimes for a momentous victory.  Peru won as an underdog with a valiant defensive effort.  Dordt led Dakota St 19-0 (4 FGs), allowed it to get tied up, then won on another FG, their 6th on the day, for a last-second win.
Bad Wins: Wesleyan and Doane had difficulties pulling away as substantial favorites.
Good Losses: Hastings took MidAmerica to the mat, falling in 2 overtimes.  Briar Cliff nearly stole what would have been a significant upset vs Dubuque.  And Springfield stayed close.
Bad Losses: None, really

Good Wins: Cumberlands was down 36-24 to Dickinson St and scored two 4th-quarter touchdowns for the win.  Cumberland utterly dominated Robt Morris in the 1st half.  And Trevecca won their maiden contest.
Bad Wins: While not horrible, Union did flop around before putting away Paul Quinn.
Good Losses: Lambuth and Bethel both climbed out of holes, only to fall down again.
Bad Losses: Milligan and Transylvania were both shredded, but as new programs this is somewhat expected.

Nonconference Record: 5-5
Good Wins: In marquee match-ups, Marian fell behind Lindenwood by 10, then went on a 35-3 run; Findlay went down 24-7 to Baker, then scored 38 consecutive points.  Taylor was relentless in their win over Otterbein.  Don’t sleep on the Trojans.
Bad Wins: Walsh and Urbana also had dramatic victories, yet should have put their opponents away earlier.
Good Losses: St Francis had the misfortune of meeting up with Mount Union in Week 1.  The Cougars actually led 28-21 in the 2nd half before the inevitable happened.  Tiffin carved out a couple of 17-point leads against Montana Tech and could not hold those leads, yet it was a gutsy effort by the Dragons.
Bad Losses: St X could not hold a late lead against a Rocky Mountain team they should have beaten, yielding two 2-point conversions in the process.  They’ll need to tighten things up.

Nonconference Record: 4-5
Good Wins: Let’s start with the Johnnies.  Trailing at the half against a formidable Wesley squad, they scored four touchdowns in the 3rd quarter that effectively sealed the win.  Concordia steadily pulled away from Simpson, Hamline scored the winning TD with less than one minute to play, and even Macalester looked dominant, albeit against a new program.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: It would be hard to label the Tommies loss to Wartburg as “good” – agonizing might be a more apt description.  A missed PAT in the 3rd quarter set the stage for a 2-point try in the 4th with seconds to play…which came up just short.  The Oles and Royals gave up late leads.
Bad Losses: Northwestern College also suffered an agonizing loss, bouncing back from a 22-0 hole to force OT, then having their PAT in the overtime session blocked.  This came against a team playing their first game back after a long absence.  The Auggies, meanwhile, just got flat-out rolled.

Nonconference Record: 3-2
Conference Round-up: Baldwin-Wallace and Heidelberg inaugurated the season in grand style.  The lead changed hands thrice in the 4th quarter, with the Yellow Jackets prevailing in an exciting contest.
Good Wins: The intuitive place to start in this conference is with Mount Union, and the Purple Raiders did indeed pull off an enormous victory over St Francis.  Although, they did trail in the 2nd half before the inevitable onslaught commenced.  No, the actual most impressive victory in Week 1 belongs to John Carroll, as the Blue Streaks thoroughly dismantled a very good Hobart squad.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: None
Bad Losses: Although neither of the two noncon losses (Capital, Otterbein) were horrible, they did both happen as slight favorites.

Nonconference Record: 4-7
Good Wins: Most of the top teams in the Prairie Conference lost in Week 1.  Thus, the initial standings might look a bit strange.  These things tend to sort themselves out over the course of a long season.  Of the Week 1 winners, K-Wes was probably the most impressive, scoring the tie-breaking touchdown late vs Concordia.  Sterling picked up an insurance TD late to seal their victory over Dana.
Bad Wins: Tabor struggled past a Springfield team that they should not have had a struggle with.
Good Losses: Of the top teams who lost, many of these were close games that could have gone in either direction.  The Ravens gave up the final 10 points vs the Red Raiders; Baker surged against Findlay, seemingly putting their game away, then gave up 38 straight points; Friends was right there at the end; Bethany, Bethel and St Mary all hung tough.
Bad Losses: Ottawa’s loss against a quality opponent, on the face of it, does not look too bad.  It was how it came about that made it agonizing.  The Braves were getting buried at the half (31-0) and never fully recovered, although 34 points in the 2nd half against PacLu bodes well for the future, if the Braves can get the realization that games begin in the 1st quarter, not the 3rd.

Nonconference Record: A really impressive 7-2, to be explained below.
Conference Round-up: The Monarchs rally fell short against the Bears.
Good Wins: Practically every one of these victories was good by definition, whether it was teams coming from behind (Widener, Wilkes, Lebanon Valley, Stevenson), protecting late leads (DelVal, Albright) or winning as an underdog (Misericordia, who had a wild victory over Grinnell).  The MASC got it done in Week 1.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: You know you’ve had a good week when the only two noncon losses were against St John’s and Carroll, both by reputable margins.
Bad Losses: Are you kidding?

Good Wins: It was a bonanza up in Pac-Sun country.  Southern Oregon trailed Bethel by 10 until the 4th quarter.  Rocky Mountain upset St Xavier.  Montana Western handled St Francis with ease, as did Oregon Tech with Trinity International.  Eight of 10 teams won, making for one helluva successful start to the season.
Bad Wins: Montana Tech should’ve handled Tiffin with a bit more ease, but we’re nitpicking.
Good Losses: There were only two losses total, and one came against Sioux Falls.  Central Wash twice led by 17, but gave up two TDs and were overtaken.  Idaho College led 36-30, but gave up a late score.

Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: St Lawrence had the best defeat, as defeats go, by hanging in tough vs Willamette.  Alfred St – yes, Alfred St – had a couple of surges against Stevenson before succumbing.

Bad Wins: None that were ugly, but ETBU should’ve closed out their game more decisively.
Good Losses: Both Southwestern U and Dallas (the latter playing their first-ever game) came from behind as TD+ underdogs to throw scares into their opponents.

Bad Wins: Dubuque was largely unimpressive holding leads in their victory over Briar Cliff.
Good Losses: Central lost a heartbreaker to Morningside when they could not convert a winning score late in regulation, only to lose in double OT.  Buena Vista lost in 2OT when they failed to hold a lead.  Luther was favored over Aurora, yet it was close nonetheless.
Bad Losses: Cornell played horribly for large stretches, and Grinnell could not hold multiple leads against a young Misericordia team.

Nonconference Record: 3-6
Good Wins: Sioux Falls, the bellwether program in the NPAC, got the proceedings off to a rousing start with their takedown of Central Wash.  The other wins (Wesleyan, Mayville), were also impressive.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: Minot and Jamestown both played their North Bay opponents to a standstill, and were in position to pull off upsets.
Bad Losses: Let’s start with the Blue Hawks, who were up 12 on Cumberlands and frittered it away.  File this under the ‘what coulda been’ category.  Valley City, Dakota St & Huron all played lousy.  The Trojans fell behind by 19, tied it up, then gave up a last-second FG…against a team they should have defeated by three TDs.

Group XVII

Nonconference Record: 5-6
Good Wins: North Central demolished Evangel, leading 37-0 at one point.  Carthage and Aurora handled their business in practical, if not spectacular, fashion.
Bad Wins: North Park was up against an expansion program and led all game, until giving up a late tying touchdown; they did pull out the victory.
Good Losses: Many of the Upper Plain’s top seeds (IL Wesleyan, Wheaton, Augustana) fell in Week 1, yet they were all against other tough programs.  The Thunder missed a potential winning touchdown with seconds left on the clock, while the other two were close late.  In addition, Millikin was within a missed 2-point conversion of sending their game against RPI into OT.  These games were all very close.
Bad Losses: C’mon Cougars, you can’t play a brand-new program and settle for seven – seven! – field goals; convert a couple of those FG’s into TD’s and you’ve got yourself a victory.

Nonconference Record: An astounding 8-1
Good Wins: Whitewater-Linfield was a much-anticipated opening-week showdown, and the Warhawks very much rose to the challenge, leading 31-12 in the 4th quarter.  Stevens Point and River Falls both had impressive wins.  Even Parkside and Superior won their inaugural games, with the Yellowjackets grabbing a 22-0 halftime lead with the help of a forced safety, then blocking a PAT in overtime to preserve the win.  There was a lot to like in the North Bay opening week.
Bad Wins: Oshkosh and Platteville both blew early leads, while Eau Claire went down 14-0 to Menlo before recovering.
Good Losses: None
Bad Losses: There was only one loss, and though Green Bay may not be favored in any games during this opening season, this was a particularly lackluster effort.

Nonconference Record: 2-9 --- yikes
Good Wins: Well, there were only two…nonetheless, Harding’s smackdown of Missouri Valley was incredible.  The Bisons never allowed the Vikings into the game, thus single-handedly allowing the CSFL to escape ignominy. 
Bad Wins: Incarnate Word kinda let Tarkio hang around before pulling away in the 4th quarter.
Good Losses: OK Baptist played well, nearly pulling out a win.  SNU And P Quinn stayed close, TC and the Assemblies stayed very close.
Bad Losses: Haskell and Okla S&A proved there’s a lot of work to be done.

Nonconference Record: 4-8
Good Wins: MNU trailed for a large chunk of their game vs Hastings, took the lead, gave up a TD+2, then won in double overtime.  A thrilling victory, one of many such games in Ideal College Football.  Seriously, if you’re looking for high-flying action and nail-biting finishes, this is the place for you.  Graceland carved out an impressive win, and Culver-Stockton did not yield a touchdown until the 4th quarter.  St Mary snuffed a late TD attempt to preserve their win over SW Assemblies.
Bad Wins: None
Good Losses: Lindenwood held their own against a very good Marian team for a half.  William Jewell was up by 12 before losing on a last-second TD.  Avila and Tarkio both hung tough as huge underdogs.
Bad Losses: MoVal and Evangel, two teams expected to be competitive (especially the former) were completely dominated in losses.  Both teams will need to get it together quickly.
