On Saturday afternoon the buzz was about the way Wartburg defeated Bethel and kept its early-season surge going at 2-0.

Long after the sun had set, however, Rose-Hulman and Illinois College were still playing, attracting the attention of college football fans across the country and ending up on a little program called SportsCenter. Hard to say that was the most important game of the week, but it certainly was the most intriguing, and suffice it to say that Pat and Keith found a few ways to talk about it.

An epic shootout, a sacktastic comeback, a quarterback change and a blowout are what we got in our four quarterfinal games on Saturday. Mount Union and Wesley went down to the final 90 seconds after the Purple Raiders roared out to a 31-0 lead, Linfield scored the first 17 and then never again in a loss to UW-Whitewater, Mary Hardin-Baylor changed up signal-callers to find a spark to close the game out and North Central was strong in all phases of the game at Bethel.
