Week 10 recaps

- Lincoln 42, Northeastern State 33: A back-and-forth contest swung Lincoln’s way for good when NSU failed to score on three straight possessions, which spanned the third and fourth quarters. A missed 52-yard field goal by NSU’s Drew Patton failed to tie the game at 28-all and led to Khiry Draine’s 15-yard touchdown pass from Jacob Morris with 11:02 left in the game, which gave the Blue Tigers a commanding 35-25 advantage. Lincoln’s Morris Henderson ran for 149 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries, and Morris added 102 yards on the ground to along with 212 yards and four touchdowns through the air.

- S.D. School of Mines 34, Nebraska Kearney 26: The game was never as close as the final score indicates. At the 5:39 mark in the third quarter, the Hardrockers claimed a 22-6 lead on Tim Crenshaw’s 32-yard touchdown run, and S.D. School of Mines held on from there. Hardrockers quarterback Ben Broeker passed for 261 yards and four touchdowns.

- Missouri Western 34, Washburn 31: The Griffons led wire to wire while improving to 5-0 on the road this season. Western led 17-7 at halftime and eventually upped its lead to 34-17 on Raphael Spencer’s 47-yard touchdown run with 1:51 left in the game. Washburn scored twice in the final 87 seconds to do some cosmetic work on the final score. The Ichabods were doomed by three turnovers, which turned into 10 points for the Griffons.

- Northwest Missouri State 48, Emporia State 21: The conference-leading Bearcats flexed their muscles throughout, traumatizing Emporia State to an eventual 41-14 lead early in the fourth quarter. The Hornets led 7-6 on Kavaski Ervin’s 45-yard touchdown pass from Brent Wilson, but Northwest Missouri State would respond by scoring 35 of the next 42 points. Quarterback Trevor Adams passed for 291 yards and five touchdowns while completing 24 of 35 passes for the Bearcats.

- Central Oklahoma 38, Southwest Baptist 31: UCO running back Josh Birmingham torched Southwest Baptist to the tune of 180 yards and two touchdowns on 35 carries (Birmingham also had a 99-yard scoring run wiped away by a penalty). Both teams punted six times, despite combining for 829 yards of total offense.

- Central Missouri 48, Fort Hays State 34: The Tigers raced out to a 27-0 lead only to have Central Missouri score 34 of 41 points in the second half. The Mules went ahead for good on Ray Harris’ 1-yard run with 1:17 left in the third quarter. Both quarterbacks in the game passed for more than 300 yards. Fort Hays State’s Treveon Albert had 313 yards and four touchdowns, while UCM’s Hayden Hawk logged 330 yards and four touchdowns on 27 of 35 attempts. The Tigers and Mules combined for 981 yards of offense.

- Pittsburg State 41, Lindenwood 6: The Gorillas scored the first 38 points of the game and never looked back. Jeff Seybold ran for 134 yards and two touchdowns on 17 rushes, as Pittsburg State churned out 444 yards of offense. The Gorilla defense forced three turnovers, which turned into 14 points on the other end.

- Missouri Southern 55, Lindenwood-Belleville 0: The Lions ran for 552 yards on 72 carries and completely overwhelmed Lindenwood-Belleville, which managed only 126 yards on offense. Missouri Southern had the game locked up by halftime with a lead of 34-0.
