Week 7 recaps

- Eastern New Mexico 35, Northeastern State 14:
Outside of a touchdown off an early Eastern New Mexico turnover and a touchdown on a late deep ball, the RiverHawks’ offense was silenced and held to 250 total yards. The Greyhounds had two 100-yard rushers (Jordan Wells with 132 and Christian Long with 102) as they piled up 368 yards on the ground. Eastern New Mexico broke an early 7-7 tie by scoring the next 28 points.

- Washburn 41, Fort Valley State 0: Not even the Ichabods’ offense got up for this one, totaling 314 yards on 72 plays. However, Washburn’s defense forced three turnovers and held Fort Valley State’s offense to 141 yards. Cody Heiman scored two rushing touchdowns for the Ichabods, while Mitch Buhler passed for two scores, one to Matt Kobberman and one to Mark Kolmer. On defense, Washburn linebacker Bryce Atagi logged eight tackles, two and half tackles for loss, one fumble recovery, one interception, two pass break-ups and one sack for 14 yards.

- Central Missouri 48, Central Oklahoma 16: Without running back Josh Birmingham after halftime, Central Oklahoma was powerless to shut down the Mules at Wantland Stadium. Hayden Hawk and LaVance Taylor engineered a ruthless offensive attack for Central Missouri, combining for five touchdowns. Taylor ran for 153 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries. Ronrei Lloyd was also instrumental for the Mules, catching eight passes for 172 yards and two scores, including a 72-yard touchdown grab early in the third quarter to put Central Missouri up 34-9.

- Nebraska Kearney 24, Lincoln 14: The Blue Tigers struck first and last but couldn’t produce any points in between as the Lopers won for the second time in their last three games. Kearney’s Tyler McKeone scored the second of his touchdowns early in the third quarter on a 4-yard run to break a 7-7 tie. The Lopers would score two more times in the third quarter to take control. Both teams’ offenses finished with 344 total yards, and Kearney running back Romero Cotton led the way with 107 yards on 27 carries.

- Fort Hays State 56, Southwest Baptist 14: A 7-7 tie early eventually turned into a 42-7 edge for Fort Hays State, which capitalized on five Bearcat turnovers — four which led to touchdowns. The win was the Tigers’ third straight.

- Northwest Missouri State 24, Pittsburg State 15: The Gorillas’ high-powered offense was held in check to the tune of 223 total yards, including two drives that ended with the Bearcats recording safeties. Played in front of 17,369 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., Northwest Missouri rallied from deficits of 7-0 and 15-8 and scored the final 16 points of the game. Northwest Missouri State quarterback Brady Bolles scored the game-tying and go-ahead touchdowns at the beginning and end of the third quarter. The Bearcats’ defense logged five sacks and eight tackles for loss while limiting Pittsburg State’s All-American wide receiver John Brown to 41 all-purpose yards.

- Missouri Western 35, Missouri Southern 21: Missouri Southern turned the ball over six times with all four fumbles leading to Griffon touchdowns. Missouri Southern, which outgained the Griffons 389 to 331, led 21-17 in the second quarter on Giresse Forchu’s 3-yard run, but the Griffons scored the final 18 points of the game — all in the second half. The Griffons took the lead for good on Travis Partridge’s 6-yard scoring pass to Stephon Weaver with 3:15 left in the third period.

- Emporia State 52, Lindenwood 21: The Hornets’ offense was in full throttle again, piling up 561 total yards, including 305 through the air. Emporia State quarterback Brent Wilson passed for 295 yards and four touchdowns, with 11 of his passes going to Ray Ray Davis for 130 yards and three touchdowns. The Hornets broke a 7-7 tie early and scored the next 28 points to put the game on ice.
