If you are a regular listener to the Around the Nation podcast, you already knew who Western Connecticut running back Octavias McKoy is. This week the rest of college football found out, as he ripped off 455 rushing yards, setting the single-game rushing record for all levels of NCAA football. Hear from him and his coach at the top of the podcast. (more…)

Matt Behrendt made a splash when he came in off the bench at quarterback for UW-Whitewater last year vs. UW-Oshkosh. This year he’s the starter.

We can count on one hand the number of weeks left in the regular season. And there’s still a lot shaping up, with power conferences such as the OAC, CCIW and WIAC on the verge of decisive stretches that pit their undefeated teams against one another.
Regional rankings will also be here soon, which will provide our first glimpse of which teams could be among the highest seeded in the postseason and which are positioned best for the coveted five — or four…no, wait, five — Pool C bids. (Listen to this past Monday’s Podcast to see what that last sentence was all about.)
For Week 8, Pat, Keith and Ryan again bring you their Saturday predictions: (more…)
Centre · Chapman · Chicago · Delaware Valley · DePauw · Dubuque · Hampden-Sydney · Hobart · Illinois Wesleyan · Ithaca · King's · Mary Hardin-Baylor · Merchant Marine · Mississippi College · Pacific · Pacific Lutheran · Redlands · Rhodes · RPI · Salisbury · St. John Fisher · Texas Lutheran · UW-Oshkosh · UW-Whitewater · Wartburg · Wesley · Western Connecticut · Wheaton · Willamette · Worcester State
If Wash U wins out, a playoff bid could be in the offing.

Redlands ends Cal Lutheran’s 28-game SCIAC streak, while you’ve probably read about Morrisville State beating Rowan and W&J also made easy work of Thomas More. The MAC got complicated. More so than usual. Keith McMillan and Pat Coleman take a look at those conference races and others in this week’s Around the Nation podcast.
They also take a close look at Pool B, the way teams get into the playoffs when they don’t have an automatic bid to play for. We’re expecting three bids for those teams this year, so in addition to Wesley, there are a lot of contenders out there. We’ll run those down for you. Plus a lot more, of course.
