Week Six scores:

Aurora 16 (2-0, 3-2)
Concordia Chicago 14 (0-1, 2-2)

Concordia Wisconsin 14 (0-2, 1-4)
Benedictine 40 (2-0, 3-2)

Rockford 20 (0-2, 0-4)
Wisconsin Lutheran 41 (1-1, 1-4)

Adrian 40
Lakeland 47 (1-0, 3-2)

That was really a fascinating game to watch on Saturday with the sharp contrast in styles. Adrian's offense is pure old school (59 runs against only 22 passes), but it was certainly effective. On the other hand, the Muskies had very little success on the ground but gained over 400 yards through the air. The end result was Whitley throwing a school record 7 TD passes, and Lakeland needed every bit of it and an interception in the end zone to seal a hard-fought victory.

Next week, we've got the big showdown with Lakeland hosting Benedictine, the Luther Cup is on the line as WLC pays CUW a visit, Rockford hosts Concordia Chicago, and Aurora steps out of NACC play to take on Alma.

Week Seven scores:

Benedictine 21 (2-1, 3-3)
Lakeland 57 (2-0, 4-2)

Wisconsin Lutheran 22 (2-1, 2-4)
Concordia Wisconsin 19 (0-3, 1-5)

Concordia Chicago 14 (0-2, 2-3)
Rockford 29 (1-2, 1-4)

Alma 27
Aurora 19 (2-0, 3-3)

Was not expecting that at all. Nice to see Lakeland's offense keep rolling in what can only be described as craptacular conditions, but Benedictine also hurt their cause with four turnovers and a blocked punt (recovered for an LU touchdown). The loss deals a crushing blow to BU's playoff aspirations, virtually eliminating any AQ chance in a 3 way tie as well - the NACC's tiebreaker is head-to-head point differential.

Although they did have an exhibition win earlier this season, Rockford's win officially snaps a 12 game losing streak for them. Next week, Lakeland travels to Wisconsin Lutheran while Aurora hosts Rockford, with both the Muskies and Spartans looking to remain unblemished in the NACC heading into their matchup on the 28th; the battle for Concordia supremacy (in our league, anyways) heads to River Forest; and Benedictine hosts Olivet.

Week Eight scores:

Lakeland 48 (3-0, 5-2)
Wisconsin Lutheran 0 (2-2, 2-5)

Rockford 21 (1-3, 1-5)
Aurora 28 (3-0, 4-3)

Concordia Wisconsin 17 (0-4, 1-6)
Concordia Chicago 37 (1-2, 3-3)

Olivet 37
Benedictine 43 (2-1, 4-3)

Lakeland used a dominant performance on both sides of the ball, holding the Warriors to just 120 yards of offense to bag their fourth straight win and their first shutout since 2015. Aurora opened their new Spartan Stadium with a slightly harder fought victory, but they count exactly the same on the standings page, and both teams remain unblemished in NACC play heading into their showdown next week. Elsewhere, Benedictine scored two touchdowns in the final 3:13 to overcome a late 9 point deficit and knock off a good Olivet squad. But the problem for them is that they need some help to get back into the AQ race, and they're running out of time to get it. Finally, Concordia Chicago snapped a three game losing streak to get back to .500 overall.

Next week, besides the aforementioned LU-AU game, the Eagles pay a visit to the Cougars, while the Regents host the Falcons, who have now lost six in a row since their season opening victory. Wisconsin Lutheran steps out of conference to host Albion.

Week Nine scores:

Lakeland 47 (4-0, 6-2)
Aurora 38 (3-1, 4-4)

Benedictine 61 (3-1, 5-3)
Concordia Chicago 32 (1-3, 3-4)

Concordia Wisconsin 26 (1-4, 2-6)
Rockford 20 (1-4, 1-6)

Albion 48
Wisconsin Lutheran 14 (2-2, 2-6)

It was not easy, it was not pretty, and it was a game where Aurora controlled much of the 2nd half. But behind a 4 yard TD pass with :02 left (and another score on the final lateral play), Lakeland escaped Spartan Athletic Park with a win to take command of the NACC title race. One more win will send the Muskies to a 3rd straight playoff appearance, which they'll have a chance to lock up at home against Concordia Chicago on Saturday.

Elsewhere in the league, CUW got back into the win column and home field advantage was apparently not a thing this week. In Week Ten, Benedictine hosts WLC, Aurora pays a visit to CUW, and Rockford welcomes Kalamazoo for non-conference play.

Week Ten:

Concordia Chicago 13 (1-4, 3-5)
Lakeland 49 (5-0, 7-2)

Wisconsin Lutheran 7 (2-3, 2-7)
Benedictine 44 (4-1, 6-3)

Aurora 36 (4-1, 5-4)
Concordia Wisconsin 14 (1-5, 2-7)

Kalamazoo 13
Rockford 6 (1-4, 1-7)

Obviously, Dezmon Eddie has no plans of giving back the No. 1 RB position for the Muskies, as he ran for a school record 308 yards yesterday and has 841 all-purpose yards and 8 TDe over the last three games. And that was the major reason the Muskies rolled to their 6th straight win and clinched the NACC's automatic bid.

However, that may not have even been the biggest story of the game, as Michael Whitley had to be carted off the field late in the 1st half. I don't know how severe it will turn out of be, but if he is unable to go, I think you can stick a fork in Lakeland's playoff chances.

To close out the regular season, Lakeland hosts Rockford, Aurora and Benedictine meet in Lisle, CUC pays a visit to WLC, and CUW hosts Hope.

Lakeland finishes regular season 8-2, Aurora and Benedictine brawl after the game.

In regard to Lakeland, are they resting Whitley, or is he injured?

Week Eleven:

Rockford 31 (1-5, 1-8)
Lakeland 57 (6-0, 8-2)

Aurora 14 (4-2, 5-5)
Benedictine 20 (5-1, 7-3)

Concordia Chicago 27 (1-5, 3-6)
Wisconsin Lutheran 29 (3-3, 3-7)

Hope 70
Concordia Wisconsin 6 (1-5, 2-8)

In regard to Lakeland, are they resting Whitley, or is he injured?

He's hurt; he got carted off late in the 1st half last week. Johnathan Hagerty got the start today, and he looked fine with what they asked him to do today, but I doubt that will cut it against playoff opposition.

Also of note, a crazy finish to the CUC-WLC game as the Cougars botched an attempt to run the final seconds off the clock on 4th down, turned it over on downs, and Grant Fleming promptly deposited a 39 yard field goal to win it for the Warriors.

That's such a shame. Would have loved to see him get one last shot at winning a playoff game for the NACC. Hopefully Hagerty can get the ball to his playmakers and keep it interesting.

Similar circumstance in Case Western game. Carnegie could have taken knees and ended the game but got called for unsportmanlike conduct and had a punt block and returned for a touchdown. College football=Greatest sport in the world

Considering how rough of a year WLC had this year, I'm happy my alma mater pulled one out in the end.

As for Lakeland, it was already a uphill climb regardless of who was at QB. Tough to say this but it'll probably be a one-and-done again for the NACC.

Beating Oshkosh will be a challenge even for the very best teams. For the Muskies, given that we haven't been able to run the ball against or stop WIAC opposition in recent meetings, and with our biggest difference maker out (AFAIK), I have a feeling it's going to be a long day. But I hope they prove me wrong! ;D

For the NACC to start winning playoff games, what we need is teams to start finishing better than 8-2 so they can get a more favorable 1st round draw than the usual top 5 teams.

Maybe it will, heck, probably it will. But maybe it won't. As the old saying goes, that's why they don't play games on paper. :P
