  1. A bit of a shake up at the top of the board this week! Let's see how everyone fared. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rank 1 North Dakota State Bison (8-1) Previous Rank: 1 It wasn't convincing, it wasn't clean, but it was a win. The Bison visited Hahvad to teach a lesson to those smarties, and... they left with some homework to do. The offense performed very well, but the defense needs a few adjustments allowing for 2 touchdowns on the ground. 5 tackles for a loss and a total of fewer than 200 yards was a great showing otherwise, though. Coming up: BYE Rank 2 North Dakota Fighting Hawks (6-2) Previous Rank: 3 North Dakota mostly dominated from start to finish. Despite a slow first quarter, the offensive line played tremendously, averaging a 4.2 rating. They held a strong Jackrabbit offense to about 250 yards and shut them out in two quarters. Robbie Koehler continues to impress scouts, tossing 3 touchdowns and Myles Chambers drop away from 300 yards. Coming up: at Montana Rank 3 Illinois State Redbirds (6-3) Previous Rank: 4 Led by running back Frankie Boone's 2 touchdown, 137 yard rushing performance, the Redbirds rolled through Delaware. Impressive play on all sides of the ball meant Illinois State entered the 4th with a commanding 4 score lead, and the team never looked back again. Coming up: BYE Rank 4 Eastern Washington Eagles (4-4) Previous Rank: 2 The Eagles hosted the Dukes this week, and boy did the run game sputter. Kelly Wiseman was held to just 34 yards on 10 carries, and Samuel Connor had to make it up through the air. Unfortunately, a 309 yard, 3 touchdown performance was not enough. A late comeback towards the end fell just short as Eastern Washington was just not able to make up the 21 point gap. Coming up: at Youngstown State Rank 5 Northern Iowa Panthers (4-4) Previous Rank: 5 What do you even say at this point? Raekwon Thomas continues to dominate the FCS. 125 yards. 3 touchdowns. This guy is ridiculous. We'll see him playing on Sundays soon, but for now? He'll take pleasure destroying his opponents. All around, a great offensive performance today, but the defense showed i ts holes, almost allowing Montana their first win. Coming up: vs Harvard Rank 6 James Madison Dukes (5-3) Previous Rank: 6 The Dukes marched into Cheney and stole a victory from the Eagles. They came to play from the beginning, and kept it that way throughout the game. Desmond Mercer cracked 102 yards in this game, and was pretty much unstoppable. Coming up: vs South Dakota State Rank 7 Youngstown State Penguins (3-5) Previous Rank: 7 BYE Coming up: vs Eastern Washington Rank 8 Delaware Blue Hens (5-4) Previous Rank: 8 It was a rough one for the Blue Hens this week as they failed to register a touchdown until late in the 4th when it was all but out of reach. Jeffrey Guzman again could not get it done, and Kaden Gilmore was held to just 50 rush yards despite scoring once. Coming up: at BYE Rank 9 Harvard Crimson (2-6) Previous Rank: 10 Mateo Gustavo was ineffective in the passing game, but both he and Cameron Whaley managed to find the endzone for a score in this one. Unfortunately, that as just about it in terms of offensive production. Defensively, the team gave up well over 300 yards and could not force a turnover. Coming up: at Northern Iowa Rank 10 South Dakota State Jackrabbits (1-7) Previous Rank: 9 It just wasn't the Jackrabbit's day today, as they started decently, but could not keep consistent. Calvin Koehler threw an interception and turned the ball over again on a lost fumble and the defense just could not slow down the Fighting Hawks. Coming up: at James Madison Rank 11 New Hampshire Wildcats (1-7) Previous Rank: 11 BYE Coming up: at UMass Rank 12 Montana Grizzlies (0-8) Previous Rank: 12 The Grizzlies played host to a very tough Northern Iowa team in the snow, and almost pulled out their first win. Gabriel Gage had a great day throwing 2 touchdowns and Christian Gray managed to sneak through the Panther defense to try to keep pace with Raekwon Thomas. Unfortunately, it was just not quite enough. Coming up: vs North Dakota

    Analyzing the NDSU Offense

    Hell yeah! Thanks for that article @Soluna! I'm pretty happy with how things have gone for me this season. Yeah, I got a pretty great team to start, but hopefully I can keep going with what I have next year when some of my key players leave for (hopefully) the NFL. I do contend if I had made the cutoff with some of my game plan changes, I could have beaten @acewulf's Red Raiders Overall, I think there are a few kinks left to figure out - namely getting stopping the run and not allowing teams back into it in the 4th quarter, but we're trending up. It's been a bit of a process trying to figure out what works and what doesn't, but really looking to continue the Bison tradition of stampeding on through. Any FBS teams want to visit Fargo?

    Another week, another close win. Gotta stop letting teams back in during the 4th.

    Oh boy Frankie Boone. Stop, they're already dead!
  5. Out of town this week, so it's late again, sorry! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rank 1 North Dakota State Bison (7-1) Previous Rank: 1 The Bison finally get a convincing win through and through. It was a complete game as they dismantled a good Delaware team 31-3. A great game through the air, on the ground, and defensively insured victory in this one, and NDSU's spot at the top of our power rankings. Coming up: at Harvard Rank 2 Eastern Washington Eagles (4-3) Previous Rank: 2 BYE Coming up: vs James Madison Rank 3 North Dakota Fighting Hawks (5-2) Previous Rank: 4 BYE Coming up: at South Dakota State Rank 4 Illinois State Redbirds (5-3) Previous Rank: 3 Northern Iowa strolled into Normal this week and... upset the Redbirds! Offensively, it was a good day. Phillip Stephenson threw 2 interceptions and Frankie Boone hit paydirt twice. However, defensive, the Redbirds struggled to contain Raekwon Thomas and Jason Bowie. Jameson Beckwith also had a very efficient day against the Illinois State defense as the Redbirds just could not get to the quaterback. Coming up: at Delaware Rank 5 Northern Iowa Panthers (3-4) Previous Rank: 6 Northern Iowa put on a offensive masterclass. Very efficient passing game coupled with three touchdowns on the ground from the monster Raekwon Thomas and his pal Jason Bowie helped propel this Panther team to the upset in Normal, IL. Coming up: at Montana Rank 6 James Madison Dukes (4-3) Previous Rank: 5 BYE Coming up: at Eastern Washington Rank 7 Youngstown State Penguins (1-5) Previous Rank: 8 It was a tough one offensively, but the defense came through sacking the opposing quarterback twice (including a safety) and intercepting him once as well. Brad McCaffrey threw 41 times to complete 22 of them for 240 yards, 1 touchdown, and an interception while Troy Norris added 60 yards and a score from the ground. Coming up: BYE Rank 8 Delaware Blue Hens (5-3) Previous Rank: 7 A really tough week for Delaware this week as the team visited FCS leaders North Dakota State. The game was never close. Jeffrey Guzman only completed 50% of his passes and threw a pick. Kaden Gilmore could not get it going, either, rushing 12 times for only 46 yards. Coming up: at vs Illinois State Rank 9 South Dakota State Jackrabbits (1-6) Previous Rank: 9 BYE Coming up: vs North Dakota Rank 10 Harvard Crimson (2-5) Previous Rank: 10 BYE Coming up: vs North Dakota State Rank 11 New Hampshire Wildcats (1-7) Previous Rank: 11 A late comeback and defensive stand was not enough as the Wildcats lose to the Penguins and fall to 1-7 on the season. Jack Mayberry turned the ball over two times and was sacked for a safety in this one. Coming up: BYE Rank 12 Montana Grizzlies (0-7) Previous Rank: 12 BYE Coming up: vs Northern Iowa

  7. Apologies that this week is late... It's been a busy week for me. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rank 1 North Dakota State Bison (6-1) Previous Rank: 1 The Bison started strong, but gave the Jack Rabbits a lifeline in the 4th quarter. Nevertheless, Zach McAllister played his heart out this week, throwing for a pair of touchdowns and even rushing in two more short ones! The offensive line had a field day, allowing no sacks and giving McAllister plenty of time to pick his passes as well as creating giant gaping holes for Baldwin to run through. An all around solid game despite the late scores by South Dakota State Coming up: vs Delaware Coming up: BYE Rank 2 Eastern Washington Eagles (4-3) Previous Rank: 3 Beating an FBS team? Done that! Eastern Washington now has the first victory over an FBS team this year! A great 3 td, 1 int performance for Samuel Connor generates score after score for the Eagles. The defense gave New Mexico State quarterback Johnny Karrod all sorts of trouble, too, sacking him twice and picking him off once. A great all around performance for the Eagles this week! Coming up: BYE Rank 3 Illinois State Redbirds (3-2) Previous Rank: 4 It wasn't always pretty, but the Redbirds managed to steal a win from previously 1-loss North Dakota. A very solid game on the ground for Frankie Boone helped ensure the clock kept running and the yards kept piling up. Defensively, Todd Werner was all over the place. He finished with 4 tackles and 2 (!!!) interceptions! Coming up: vs Northern Iowa Rank 4 North Dakota Fighting Hawks (5-2) Previous Rank: 2 The upset of the week! North Dakota fell to a resurgent Redbirds team. Todd Werner intercepted Fighting Hawks quarterback Robbie Koehler twice and held Roman Bentley to just 52 yards. Defensively, however, Fighting Hawks fared much better, sacking and intercepting the QB once each. Rank 5 James Madison Dukes (4-3) Previous Rank: 5 A great day in the office for the Dukes as they soundly defeated Youngstown State 24-10. 250 yards and 2 touchdowns from Cooper Flemming combined with an impressive 2 interception performance from the defense kept the Penguins from ever really being in this one. Coming up: BYE Rank 6 Northern Iowa Panthers (2-4) Previous Rank: 6 BYE Coming up: at Illinois State Rank 7 Delaware Blue Hens (5-2) Previous Rank: 9 A nervy win for the Blue Hens this week as they squeak past a 1-5 New Hampshire team. A great 100+ yard effort from Daniel Padgett "getts" Delaware the win this week. David Marks and Joe Wyatt combined for 8 tackles, 1 int, and 2 passes defended in a solid defensive outing. Coming up: at New Hampshire Rank 8 Youngstown State Penguins (1-5) Previous Rank: 8 Not a fantastic outing for the Penguins this week. Brad McCaffrey struggled to get his passes to connect to the right guys, throwing two interceptions and Troy Norris was held to 23 yards on 9 rushes (though he did manage 32 receiving yards and the lone touchdown for the Penguins). Keith Wright did not help things as he missed 2 of his 3 field goals. Coming up: at New Hampshire Rank 9 South Dakota State Jackrabbits (1-6) Previous Rank: 10 Not the best week for the Jack Rabbits. They hosted the leaders, made it interesting towards the end, but ultimately could not complete the comeback. Although filled with talent, South Dakota State just cannot catch a break. On the bright side, the defense racked up a bunch of tackles including 3 for a loss. Coming up: BYE Rank 10 Harvard Crimson (2-5) Previous Rank: 9 It was an ugly one. Harvard faced off against a winless UConn team and came out battered on the other side. A humbling 7-45 defeat saw Mateo Gustavo only connect on 50% of his passes, good for 41 yards and Harvard's only score. Coming up: BYE Rank 11 New Hampshire Wildcats (1-6) Previous Rank: 11 Although the Wildcats got off to a hot start, they sizzled out and were held to only 7 points in the final three periods of play. Jack Mayberry threw for under 50% completion as his receivers dropped three passes. Defensively, things looked up as they managed three sacks as a unit. Coming up: vs Youngstown State Rank 12 Montana Grizzlies (0-7) Previous Rank: 12 Destroyed by BYU this week, the Grizzlies have a lot of work to do if they want to salvage this season. Gabriel Gage was picked off thrice and managed to only complete a third of his passes. Christian Gray was held to under 2 yards per attempt. Gabriel Butler also missed two long field goals. Coming up: BYE

    Assuming you mean NDSU, we need to stop letting teams back into the game late. I swear the most points any team has scored on us has been in the 4th.

    Ah, for some reason I thought there was a dash in front of every missed FG.
  14. Literally all but 5 teams were on a bye this week. Makes the week a bit easier to write, yet... difficult... ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rank 1 North Dakota State Bison (5-1) Previous Rank: 1 NDSU played in their first FBS match up of the season, facing off against the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The Bison will be disappointed for not pulling off the upset, but they sure gave the Red Raiders a scare, scoring 10 in the 4th quarter and losing by just 4. Ivan Baldwin was held to just 44 yards on 12 carries, but did manage a score. Defensively the team played well but did not manage to touch Donald Garrett despite 3 tackles for a loss. They also held Solomon McLaughlin out of the endzone. An impressive showing, but not quite enough to finish off the job. Coming up: at South Dakota State Rank 2 North Dakota Fighting Hawks (5-1) Previous Rank: 2 The Fighting Hawks did win against New Hampshire, but struggled to really put this game away. Robbie Koehler had the worst game of the season but two touchdowns from Roman Bentley accompanied by a great defense helped North Dakota pull off the win. Coming up: vs Illinois State Rank 3 Eastern Washington Eagles (2-3) Previous Rank: 3 BYE Coming up: at New Mexico State Rank 4 Illinois State Redbirds (3-2) Previous Rank: 4 BYE Coming up: BYE Rank 5 James Madison Dukes (3-3) Previous Rank: 5 BYE Coming up: at Youngstown State Rank 6 Northern Iowa Panthers (2-4) Previous Rank: 6 BYE Coming up: BYE Rank 7 Delaware Blue Hens (4-2) Previous Rank: 9 An overtime game that went into two periods with only field goals scored in those periods? That's when you know we had a weird one. The Blue Hens managed a 16-13 victory in double OT hosing a Harvard team with a great RB in Cameron Whaley. Offensively, Delaware managed a ton of yards, but only came out of all of that with one touchdown. Defensively, the Blue Hens were active and managed to force a turnover. Coming up: at New Hampshire Rank 8 Youngstown State Penguins (1-4) Previous Rank: 8 BYE Coming up: vs James Madison Rank 9 Harvard Crimson (2-4) Previous Rank: 7 Cameron Whaley had a monster game, but Mateo Gustavo could not keep up, only throwing for 107 yards as well as losing a fumble. The defense, however stepped it up, managing to pick off Guzman two times and held the Delaware RB Gilmore in check for the most part. Coming up: at New Hampshire Rank 10 South Dakota State Jackrabbits (1-4) Previous Rank: 11 BYE Coming up: vs North Dakota State Rank 11 New Hampshire Wildcats (1-5) Previous Rank: 10 Offensively, it was not a great outing for the Wildcats. They only managed one touchdown and coughed up two turnovers. Defensively, they did manage to keep Robbie Koehler and his dangerous receivers out of the endzone - even managing to pick off the QB once. They just could not stop Roman Bentley in the red zone, giving up two short rushing TDs. Coming up: vs Delaware Rank 12 Montana Grizzlies (0-6) Previous Rank: 12 BYE Coming up: at BYU

    There must be a typo. Stephen Beyer, the kicker for Harvard says 2/4 but only had 1 miss according to the kick distances column.
