— Southwest Baptist ran for 205 yards on 33 carries against Northeastern State on Saturday, leading to the RiverHawks setting a new low for rushing defense. NSU has now given up 2,425 yards on the ground this season, breaking an old program record that was set in 2011 when the RiverHawks allowed 2,289 yards.
— Cory Meaders started at quarterback for NSU, marking the second time this season he has started. Meaders completed four of 13 passes for 39 yards. Thor Long replaced Meaders in the third quarter, finishing five of nine for 62 yards.
— NSU kicker Drew Patton, who kicked a 37-yard field goal and four extra points against Southwest Baptist, moved into second place on NSU's scoring list since the program joined the NCAA ranks in 1998. Patton, now with 209 points, trails Carlton Booe, who has 224 points. Patton passed Trey McVay (208) on the list.
— Late in the third quarter, NSU wide receiver Jordan Robinson, a Wagoner alumn, caught a 20-yard pass from Long. Robinson, however, was injured on the play when he was tackled by Southwest Baptist's Ivan Hodges, who was penalized and ejected from the game for targeting. Robinson, who finished the game with four catches for 52 yards, was escorted off the field, but did not return to the game. After the game, Evans said Robinson would be "OK, but was going to the hospital as a precautionary measure." A few hours after the game, Robinson posted on his Twitter page that his injury may consist of "either a torn ligament or c6 vertebra fracture" in his neck.
— Hopper's three touchdowns were the most rushing touchdowns by a NSU player since Joel Rockmore scored three times against Southwest Baptist last season in Bolivar, Mo.
— Southwest Baptist head coach Craig Schuler was not with the Bearcats on the road. He was absent due to medical reasons, which were not elaborated on.
