Week 1 recaps

• Pittsburg State 45, Northeastern State 6:
The Gorillas scored 45 unanswered points to start the game, thanks in large part to 582 yards of total offense. Running back Jeff Seybold ran for 132 yards and a touchdown on six carries, and Pittsburg State quarterback Anthony Abenoja threw for three touchdowns while also running for a score in the fourth quarter.

• Missouri Southern 52, Central Oklahoma 38: A typically run-first team, Missouri Southern used a balanced offensive effort (241 rushing yards, 232 passing yards) to turn back the Bronchos, who did get 169 yards and four touchdowns on the ground from tailback Josh Birmingham. Also, the Lions capitalized on three UCO turnovers.

• Washburn 58, Nebraska Kearney 13: Kearney was within 10-6 early in the second quarter, but Washburn responded with 41 straight points to put the game on ice. Willie Williams had two interceptions for Washburn, who capitalized on seven turnovers by the Lopers.

• Missouri Western 26, Central Missouri 23: There were three lead changes in the fourth quarter, with Missouri Western going ahead for good on Reggie Jordan’s 5-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Travis Partridge with 14 seconds left. Partridge passed for 198 yards and three touchdowns while also racking up 57 yards on the ground.

• Northwest Missouri State 45, Saginaw Valley State 24: The third-ranked Bearcats used 181 rushing yards and 285 passing yards form Trevor Adams to win the top-25 showdown against No. 18 Saginaw Valley.

• Emporia State 43, Fort Hays State 13: Brent Wilson, a former Ponca City quarterback, led the Hornets with 301 yards and three touchdowns through the air. He also had 74 yards and two touchdowns on 13 rushes.

• Lindenwood 24, Lincoln 22: The Lions were squarely in control, leading Lincoln 24-3 in the third quarter. Lincoln, however, rallied and got to within two with 18 seconds left. The Blue Tigers, though, couldn’t recover the ensuing onside kick. Lindenwood quarterback Dillon Miller finished 34 of 52 for 363 yards and two scores.

• Truman 40, Southwest Baptist 37: Truman won the battle of former conference foes with a 39-yard field goal by Derek Koon with six minutes left in the game. The two teams combined for 918 yards of total offense.
