Game Day: A double homecoming

That’s what I have today, anyway: homecoming at Allegheny and at Mount Union. I will throw it open now. What’s up today?

We’ve got Keith McMillan at Frostburg State-Wesley, Gordon Mann at Del Val-Leb Val and Jason Bowen at East Texas Baptist-McMurry and Mary Hardin-Baylor/Hardin-Simmons.

Meanwhile, an overcast day here at Allegheny, temperature in the low- to mid-60’s, a little wind. No swamp here anymore, just artificial turf.

Color guy for Allegheny just proclaimed this game against Wabash as “clearly the two best teams in the conference here today.” Not sure I agree but eventually we’ll find out.

  1. And we start off with Matt Hudson fumbling the ball at midfield on the third play from scrimmage. Play changed at the line, then a miscommunication in the backfield. Hudson kept the ball, turned upfield and it was on the turf.

  2. Allegheny goes three-and-out — an incomplete pass on first down and two tuns up the middle that were stuffed. Wasted a big opportunity and probably lost the momentum. Heading down to the field to take pictures for a while.

  3. Depauw returns the opening kick to their 31, very methodically drive to the Millsaps 14 before stalling, Jordan Havercamp hits from 31 to give the Tigers an early 3-0 lead against the visiting Majors.

  4. Millsaps is held to a three-and-out on their first possession. DePauw has a fourth-and-one near midfield and elects to punt, Majors take over on their 21.

  5. Wes Chamblee’s 86-yard punt return for a TD the biggest play so far as Wabash has turned the ball over twice already. 7-3 Wabash 1:45 1st.

  6. DePauw gets a touchdown on a short pass from Spud Dick to Alex Koors. The extra point is blocked; DPU leads 9-0 early in the second as the Majors have yet to get their offense going.

    Birmingham-Southern takes advantage of a return past midfield on the opening kick to take an early 7-0 lead at Trinity.

  7. DPU holds Millsaps again, the Tigers start at their four and score when Spud finds Koors for a 67-yard score. DePauw now leads Millsaps 16-0, 6:41 left in the first half.

  8. 14-3 Wabash. Allegheny has spent a lot of time today trying to get to the edge on offense but the Little Giants are far, far too quick up front.

  9. Kody LeMond just made a fantastic catch for a 41-yard touchdown — LeMond went from one step behind cornerback Tyler Brown to one step ahead of him while the ball was in the air.

  10. Trinity’s defense has started to firm up, holding B-SC three times. They’ve scored on each possession, two field goals (including a 47 yarder from Garrett Biel) and a 62-yard pass from sophomore Patrick Dickinson to a streaking Caleb Urban. B-SC gets another return to midfield.

  11. Millsaps gets it going with a 19-play, 80-yard drive finished off with a short pass from Graves to O’Rear. Surprisingly the Majors don’t go for two, so the Majors now trail 16-7 with just 31 seconds left before the half.

  12. Hobart all over St Lawrence today 33-10 with about 6 mins to play in the game. The Larries just scored on a 30 yd TD pass but it was against a mostly reserve Statesmen defense. Very solid day for Hobart who will get back to .500 overall and in the LL standings.

    Big game next week against Union.

  13. DePauw holds Millsaps on the first possession of the second half, then drive 59 yards and score when Spud finds Bryan Mulligan from ten yards out. 23-7 DPU, 11:30 3rd.

  14. Thanks.

    Allegheny opens the half with just its fourth first down of the game and a 7-yard run, its longest of the afternoon.

  15. Allegheny quarterback T.J. Salopek underthrows a receiver in the end zone, picked off and returned to the Wabash 48. Salopek has struggled throwing into the wind in the second and third quarters.

  16. Allegheny gets a goal-line stop and Wabash fumbles the ball six inches short of the end zone. 28-3 Wabash still, 7:38 3rd.

  17. … and Allegheny hands the ball off 7 yards deep in the end zone on first down. Never gets out of the end zone. Safety.

    Why hand the ball off so deep in your own end zone? Similar to a discussion Craig Dunkin and I had on the air at Oxy a couple weeks ago.

  18. Joe Boyle 7-for-15 passing with two interceptions at the half for St. John’s. Bethel leads 7-0 in Collegeville.

  19. Under pressure, Hudson underthrows a deep ball by a good 8-10 yards, interception by Kyle Wilson and returned to midfield.

  20. Trinity now leads B-SC 27-7 after Patrick Dickinson scores from 12 yards out on a scramble off a busted play. TU has rushed 27 times to only eight pass attempts

    DePauw got a field goal earlier to extend their lead over Millsaps to 26-14. 1:03 left in the third with DPU facing fourth down at the Millsaps 32.

  21. Trinity up 41-7 as Dickison scores on another ten yard run; after a muffled punt, backup QB Jeremy Staska scores from a yard out. 12 minutes to play.

  22. DPU gets a 42-yd field goal to go up 29-21; Millsaps gets another long (52 yd) TD completion to Galatas, but the two point conversion is no good. DPU leads 29-27 with STILL 3:37 to play.

  23. A couple of upsets brewing (one has already brewed) with UofR finally taking a close game and defeating RPI by a score of 16-10. The USMMA has a 9-0 lead over Susquehanna in the second half but that game is currently “on hold” (due to lightening I think).

  24. #20 Ithaca holds off the Hartwick Hawks 24-20. The Hawks had the ball with less than 2 mins to play but threw an interception.

  25. USMMA Mariners with a dominating 24-8 win over the Palazzi-less Crusaders. Both teams (MMA for the better, SU for the worse) have done a complete about face from last weekend’s games.
