Week Six:

Concordia Chicago 27 (1-1, 3-2)
Aurora 63 (2-0, 4-1)

Rockford 13 (0-2, 1-4)
Benedictine 48 (2-0, 3-2)

Eureka 26 (1-1, 3-2)
Wisconsin Lutheran 20 (OT) (1-1, 1-4)

Concordia Wisconsin 0 (0-2, 2-3)
Lakeland 44 (1-1, 2-3)

Didn't get to see the game this week as I was traveling, but a total beatdown to regain the Cheese Bowl is not what I was expecting. Not complaining though! CUW was expected to contend this year, and two losses have all but buried those hopes, while Eureka needed overtime to avoid the same fate.

Next week, the Spartans and Eagles both hit the road as they look to remain unbeaten in conference play.

I think this is a one-horse race: Aurora. The middle tier of the NACC (and by that I mean "everybody except the clear superior team") is always so hard to predict. Lakeland getting beat by CUC an then throwing a shutout vs. CUW? Eureka needing OT vs. WLC? I'm not sold on Benedictine but you never know. I think that literally five teams have a legitimate shot at second place although I think that Benedictine and Eureka are slightly better than the rest, but we'll see how it plays out.

Week Seven:

Aurora 24 (3-0, 5-1)
Concordia Wisconsin 7 (0-3, 2-4)

Benedictine 27 (3-0, 4-2)
Wisconsin Lutheran 3 (1-2, 1-5)

Concordia Chicago 35 (2-1, 4-2)
Eureka 34 (1-2, 3-3)

Lakeland 76 (2-1, 3-3)
Rockford 21 (0-3, 1-5)

There will almost certainly be a new champion in the NACC this year as the title holders were unable to hold a 20 point lead against CUC, with Moise scoring the go ahead TD with only 15 seconds left. Even after that, the Red Devils got into Hail Mary range but were ruled to be out of time, much to the displeasure of the EC announce team. The Cougars are now one win away from clinching their first .500 or better season since 2012.

Also, no that Lakeland score is not a typo, but it is a new school record.

Next week, the top four teams in the standings host the bottom four, highlighted by Benedictine facing off with Eureka.

Ah the Lonnie Pries era for CUC. Back then those CUC teams were a beast on offense. Shame they came oh so close to beating Bethel at home in the first round of the postseason in 2012.

Week Eight:

Rockford 14 (0-4, 1-6)
Aurora 56 (4-0, 6-1)

Eureka 14 (1-3, 3-4)
Benedictine 17 (4-0, 5-2)

Wisconsin Lutheran 6 (1-3, 1-6)
Lakeland 39 (3-1, 4-3)

Concordia Wisconsin 34 (1-3, 3-4)
Concordia Chicago 15 (2-2, 4-3)

Aurora clears another hurdle easily - and the Regents have now allowed 180 points in their last three games, ouch. But they still have plenty of work left to do, as they host Benedictine next week and travel to Lakeland for the regular season finale which could be for all the marbles.

Week Nine:

Benedictine 25 (4-1, 5-3)
Aurora 27 (5-0, 7-1)

Lakeland 49 (3-2, 4-4)
Eureka 50 (2-3, 4-4)

Wisconsin Lutheran 17 (2-3, 2-6)
Concordia Chicago 14 (2-3, 4-4)

Rockford 27 (0-5, 1-7)
Concordia Wisconsin 41 (2-3, 4-4)

That should just about do it. Aurora held on to win the battle of undefeated teams, intercepting a game tying 2 point conversion after the Eagles had scored 2 TDs in the final 2 1/2 minutes to nearly force overtime. Combined with Lakeland's road loss, the Spartans only need one win in their last two games to clinch the NACC's playoff berth. They can get it at Wisconsin Lutheran next week.

Week Ten:

Aurora 62 (6-0, 8-1)
Wisconsin Lutheran 7 (2-4, 2-7)

Lakeland 26 (3-3, 4-5)
Benedictine 34 (5-1, 6-3)

Concordia Wisconsin 0 (2-4, 4-5)
Eureka 24 (3-3, 5-4)

Concordia Chicago 28 (3-3, 5-4)
Rockford 25 (0-6, 1-8)

Aurora left little doubt all season that they were the team to beat in the NACC, and they left no doubt on Saturday to clinch their first trip to the NCAA Playoffs in 11 years! Congratulations to the Spartans! They've scored at least 56 points in four of their six conference games this far.

Next week, Aurora gets ready for the playoffs against Lakeland, where they can wrap up the outright NACC title with a win; Benedictine will hope they leave the door open for a share of the championship, while everyone will try to send their seniors out on a high note.

Lakeland is a solid team and Aurora has already clinching the NCAA bid, but I think that Aurora is too strong and has the motivation of an undefeated conference season; I don't think that Coach Beebe will allow them to suffer a letdown.

Hope all the seniors have a successful sendoff and everybody is injury-free today.

Hope so. Here's to my alma mater reclaiming back the Luther Cup from CUW this Saturday.

Hey, there, Aurora!  Welcome to Collegeville.  We hope you have a great trip and a good time.

From what I hear it is air attack from Illinois.  Well, the ball will be getting slung with gusto on Saturday then.  Let's hope hope for great football weather.

Concur on that one. Don Beebe did a heck of a job in his first year there. Gavin Zimbelman threw for 51 TD's which blew away the previous single season record for TD's. AU must be kicking themselves by dropping a heartbreaker to Hope in the NACC-MIAA Challenge. They could've been hosting possibly.

That wouldn't have been very nice. I'm sure you know how cold Lake Michigan gets this time of year!

But alas, that would have required us to actually stop Aurora at some point. Which, well...that didn't happen.
