Barring upsets, Trinity coach Julie Jenkins should earn the 1,000th win of her career this weekend, most likely Friday evening against homestanding Centenary (LA) (9-8).   Austin College (11-1) will do their best in the opening game of the crossover to avoid being #999; if there is an upset than #1000 could come against UDallas (5-7) the following day.

As for a rematch in the playoffs, obviously A LOT has changed since 2019 but as the linked articles states it is a rule that we can't play each other in the first round. With that in mind I remind everyone that a much better looking Trinity plays Berry this upcoming weekend in what could be a battle for the top prize in the SAA and could save the NCAA some money if they could bus one of the potential trio of Texas schools to the other in the first round.

Edit: Looks like Wally beat me to the punch but either way the comment about Trinity stands, and I think Hendrix may be less than 500 miles from Belton but I am not sure.

Hendrix has not looked great this fall but a lot of that depends on whether HPU is legit.  Should know more about them after they play unbeaten Centre this week.  But Google says it's 477 miles from Conway to Belton - not the official NCAA mileage but should be enough of a fudge factor that it would be within their bus limits.

Trinity has done very well against soft opponents (Macalester 1-2 and TLU 1-3 after losing at Sul Ross).  Berry will be a good test of whether or not they will challenge for the SAA title, but they also have to play at Birmingham-Southern (3-0 with a monster RB Shufford averaging 166 yards/game only playing 2-3 quarters in three blowout wins) and a Centre team that will possibly be undefeated when they come to town in a couple of weeks.

#3 Trinity (TX) defeats #4 Colorado College in Colorado Springs for the first time in 7 attempts, 25-20, 25-10, 25-13.  The visiting Tigers hit .355 (.522 in the second set) while limiting their opponents to .114 (and -.067 in the second).

It should be noted (per CC's website) that Colorado was playing without senior outside hitter Isabella Vasquez, a first-team all-SCAC selection injured in Friday's victory over Southwestern.  Vasquez, a .271 hitter, averages over 10 kills per match.

Centre slips past Trine, 14-7, to remain undefeated.

Rhodes destroys Westminster (MO), 47-7.   Congratulations to the Lynx and their fans, it's been a long time coming.
Millsaps gets a couple scores late but still fall to Olivet, 44-27. 
Centre hosts Trine tonight.

Sewanee giving Hendrix a game today, just scored to make it 14-13 HX (first Sewanee PAT was no good, surprised they didn't go for two on the second).  4 minutes before halftime.

Not a lot of defense today in Jackson where Olivet just converted a 4th and 3 and one play later score to take a 30-13 lead with about 9 minutes to go in the second quarter.   Kaleb Johnson is 12-15 for 222 and a TD but the Majors can't get their running game on track (21 attempts, 19 yards).    Johnson has also been sacked five times.

Rhodes is up 13-0 at Westminster (Mo).   Live stats not working.   Lynx are just inside Blue Jay territory with about a minute left in the half.

Glad you enjoyed.  A little unusual for both teams in that Colorado’s most dangerous scorer was out the entire game, Trinity didn’t start either their best striker or defensive mid (both came in later in the game).  Trinity also playing their backup keeper who has not seen much action.  Second half was all Trinity and ended 6-2 in the home side’s favor.  This was not a SCAC match so both teams doing things they won’t when it counts.

Rule (the kid with two goals off headers) doesn’t usually play that far forward.  Glad to see him get his first points on the season.

I suggest 5-1 Colorado College at #4 Trinity (TX) for your viewing pleasure, SC (7:30 PM CDT Friday).  TU and CC are rivals in a number of sports - not a lot of love lost on the pitch.  If you're interested you can find the broadcast here.  If you join early there won't be any audio - there's only commentary while the games are in progress so it's radio silence before the match and during halftime.

#3 Trinity visits #4 Colorado College in one of this weekend's SCAC Divisionals, continuing last year's trend of playing them in Colorado Springs (which they did three times, all losses).  The last time the two faced off in San Antonio was a five-set classic in 2018, also won by Colorado, and they won't play there again unless they face off in this year's SCAC playoffs to be held at Trinity.

I don't applaud or smite as a rule, but, because you identified that there are not one but two hills called "Round Top" and you named the hero who spotted and held the high ground on July 1, 1863, you sorely tempted me to give you a +1.

@Gregory Sager.  Your post alone is reward enough.

Having no reservations about karma, I gave you a point.

I felt good about my top 4 but the next 3 I I was torn.  I considered all 5 of the teams receiving votes and a few more.  I believe I was one of only 2 who voted for Berry and honestly I was likely influenced by past success and pre-season expectations/rankings.  Berry has a bye this week and then the game against Trinity at home to help sort it out.  Next week should really help shape things in the ODAC with Randy-Mac vs Ferrum and Shenandoah vs Bridgewater.  We should know about Huntingdon after these next two games against Brevard and Methodist.  If the Hawks win that could set up a matchup of two teams undefeated in conference against Averett on 10/16

Given the craziness with teams playing few to no games last year and all the unknowns about which teams have super seniors playing their fifth year and two years of new recruits, nobody should feel badly about not having all the answers at this stage.   Appreciate all the pollsters who are giving it their best shot!
