Week 9 recaps
- Northeastern State 31, Southwest Baptist 3: Hey, NSU is now 1-0 when leading at halftime this season. The RiverHawks led wire to wire, thanks to Steven Hopper’s 228-yard, three-touchdown day on 25 rushing attempts. Southwest Baptist failed in key situations, going two for 16 on third-down conversions and one for three on red zone chances.
- Central Missouri 56, Nebraska Kearney 0: Quarterback Hayden Hawk picked apart Kearney’s defense, going 23 of 26 for 328 yards and four touchdowns for the Mules. Kearney made it to Central Missouri’s 29-yard line on its opening drive and never made it back across the Mules’ 30 the rest of the day.
- Fort Hays State 63, South Dakota Mines 17: Hays raced out to a 21-3 lead by the end of the first quarter and never looked back. The Tigers, who had 537 yards on offense, were led by quarterback Treveon Albert, who passed for 247 yards and two touchdowns. FHSU wide receiver Keaton Callins racked up 169 all-purpose yards, thanks to 109 yards on six receptions and 60-yard punt return for a touchdown in the first quarter.
- Pittsburg State 70, Northwestern Oklahoma 0: The Gorillas needed only 28 plays on offense to score eight touchdowns in the first half. Jeff Seybold ran 10 times for 125 yards and three scores for Pittsburg State, which was playing its fourth-string quarterback, Todd Freeman, in the fourth quarter.
- Northwest Missouri State 52, Washburn 21: Washburn’s eight-game unbeaten streak came crashing down in a hurry. Northwest Missouri State led 35-7 with 1:50 left in the opening half. Against the conference’s top scoring defense, the Bearcats piled up 481 yards on offense.
- Emporia State 35, Missouri Western 30: The Hornets led 21-0 before the midway point of the first quarter, but Missouri Western came storming back to claim a 24-21 edge with 11:01 left in the fourth quarter. Then Emporia State scored two consecutive touchdowns, both on 1-yard passes from Brent Wilson — one to Kavaski Ervin and the other to Ray Ray Davis. The Griffons shot themselves in the foot by turning the ball over six times, which led to 21 points on the other end.
- Central Oklahoma 49, Lincoln 42: The Bronchos led wire to wire in a game that featured 922 yards of total offense. Pacing the Bronchos was Josh Birmingham with 130 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries, and Marquez Clark with nine catches for 165 yards, on top of a 55-yard punt return for a touchdown.
- Lindenwood at Missouri Southern, ppd.: Missouri Southern canceled all homecoming activities in Joplin, Mo., including the Lions’ home football game, after assistant coach Derek Moore was shot and killed outside of a movie theater on Friday night.
