The Methodist -v- Huntingdon game that year was one of those games that the Hawks lost while putting up big offense.  There was a combined 1,144 yards of offense, 93 total points, 0 turnovers, only 6 negative yardage plays, and 152 total offensive/defensive plays.  The Monarchs converted more third and fourth downs.  That combined with a little better starting field position were the keys.  Also the Methodist QB throwing for 300 and running for 100 didn't hurt the cause

And if you were ever looking for a game in the USAC where I believe defense was optional look no further than the Monarchs final game of 2013 vs the Battling Bishops.

68 total first downs
178 offensive/defensive snaps
1,315 total offensive yards
131 total points (18 TDs and 2 FGs)
6 punts (3 by each team)
2 turnovers (1 by each team)

NCWC had 2 QB's play one threw for 190 and the other threw for 260
Methodist's starting QB was lost for the game early in the second period.  This was after leading the Monarch on 4 scoring drives in the first 4 possessions.
 The backup came in and threw for 300 yards and 4 TDs.  The Monarchs backup QB was NCWC starting QB as a freshman in 2010 and was the offensive ROY that season in the conference.  Methodist was down 61-62 and scored with 23 seconds left on the clock and added the 2 point conversion to seal the 7 point win.
