Coach Beez was tied at 255 victories with the retired Frosty Westering and the still- active Kevin Donley of the ST FRANCIS (IN) COUGARS.

Coach Biesiot has a definite sense of the dramatic and logged the 256th triumph in a 21-20 nailbiter against the visiting MONTANA STATE UNIVERSITY- NORTHERN LIGHTS.

NUMBER ONE TAKES A FALL – The unranked BUFFALO STATE BENGALS accomplished the monumental task of handing a home defeat to the top-ranked defending champions of NCAA Division 3 football – the WHITEWATER WARHAWKS.

Fans stunned by the half-time score of a meager 3-0 in favor of UWW had that shock compounded by the 7-6 final score! The Bengals scored the winning touchdown with just 3.2 seconds left in the game. The loss snaps the 46 game winning streak the Warhawks had compiled. This result has seismic implications for the D3 picture going forward this season.

THE JIMMIES, THE EAGLES, THE FALCONS AND THE TIGERS RULE THE WORLD – Four NAIA teams kept alive their weekly tradition of upsetting NCAA Division TWO teams. – The JAMESTOWN COLLEGE JIMMIES (helmet at left) edged the SOUTH DAKOTA M&T HARDROCKERS in a 17-14 Instant Classic.

The Tigers survived a very tough 42-36 contest against the LIVINGSTONE BLUE BEARS.  ###   ( Hey, D3! How come YOUR teams don’t beat D2 teams every week like the NAIA does? Had to be asked given the intense rivalry between the NAIA and NCAA Division 3)

TOP 25 UPSETS – NAIA – After last week’s monumental toppling of the number 2 team in the rankings this week was very mild, featuring just one minor upset in the rankings. That upset was provided by the Great Plains Athletic Conference.

TOP 25 UPSETS – D2 – The UNIVERSITY OF FINDLAY OILERS went on the road and played Red Adair by dousing the 9th ranked SAGINAW VALLEY STATE CARDINALS in a 29-27 nailbiter.   ###   The unlucky number 13 TEXAS A&M- KINGSVILLE JAVELINAS fell on the road to the Continue reading

NUMBER TWO TAKES A FALL! – The unranked MONTANA TECH OREDIGGERS (helmet at left) shocked the nation yesterday by rising up to defeat the 2nd ranked CARROLL COLLEGE FIGHTING SAINTS!

And this was no flukish, last- minute, hold on by the seat of their pants upset, either! The Orediggers (love that name, too) won this victory over the NAIA’s most famous football dynasty by an impressive 37-20.


The Bears logged their first win of the 2012 season in this milestone home stand. They mauled the Wildcats and toyed with them at will in this 20-2 rout that the Lenoir- Rhyne faithful will be boasting about for some time to come.
