Week 8 recaps

- Central Missouri 51, Northeastern State 7: LaVance Taylor rushed for 137 yards to lead the charge for the Mules, who racked up 374 yards on the ground. In all, Central Missouri piled up 603 yards of offense while scoring the first 44 points of the game. On defense, the Mules recorded six sacks while posting a season-low in points allowed.

- Nebraska Kearney 28, Southwest Baptist 14: Romero Cotton ran for 148 yards, Luke McNitt added 85 and Kearney’s defense took care of the rest. The Lopers’ defense stymied Southwest Baptist’s offense to the tune of 189 total yards. Kearney led 14-0 before the end of the first quarter, thanks to a touchdown run and a touchdown reception by Cotton. The Bearcats were within 14-7 at halftime, but the Lopers scored 14 unanswered points in the second half to put the game away.

- Fort Hays State 45, Lincoln 35: A pair of 100-yard rushers wasn’t enough for Lincoln, which let a 35-31 lead get away in the fourth quarter. Fort Hays State’s Edward Smith scored on a 1-yard run to put the Tigers in front, 38-35, in the fourth quarter, and Andre Smith logged a 24-yard touchdown run to put the game on ice for Fort Hays State, who was led by quarterback Treveon Albert’s 22-of-34 performance for 294 yards and three touchdowns. For Lincoln, Jacob Morris rushed for 141 yards and two touchdowns, and Morris Henderson added 131 yards and a touchdown.

- Washburn 44, Lindenwood 35: Lindenwood led Washburn 28-24 in the third quarter, but the Ichabods rallied to score 20 of the final 27 points in the game. Washburn went ahead for good on Matt Kobberman’s 15-yard touchdown pass from Mitch Buhler, who passed for 277 yards and five touchdowns while completing 25 of his 39 passes. Lindenwood got to within 37-35 on Sam Sealer’s 17-yard touchdown grab from Dillon Miler with 9:21 left, but that’s all the Lions would get with their final two possessions ending with a turnover on downs and an interception, respectively. For Lindenwood, Miller finished the game 27 of 38 for 327 yards and two touchdowns.

- Pittsburg State 34, Missouri Western 14: In a game that featured only one turnover for both clubs, it was Pittsburg State torching the Griffons’ defense in a battle for second place in the league. Aside from Travis Partridge’s 67-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Jordan in the second quarter, the Gorillas made life miserable for Missouri Western’s offense. Pitt State scored 27 of the first 34 points and was in full control by early in the fourth quarter. The Gorillas amassed 280 rushing yards, led by Jeff Seybold’s 179-yard, three-touchdown effort. On defense, Pittsburg State had seven tackles for losses, four sacks and five pass break-ups.

- Northwest Missouri State 43, Missouri Southern 7: Against the nation’s seventh-best defense, Missouri Southern managed only 221 yards on offense — all on the ground. The Bearcats thoroughly dominated the entire contest, holding Missouri Southern without a touchdown until the 4:02 mark in the fourth period. The Lions only navigated into Northwest Missouri State territory five times out of 12 drives. The Bearcats weren’t stellar on offense but managed a balanced effort (164 rushing yards, 204 passing yards).
