Mid-Atlantic

St. Joseph's beat West Virginia as expected, and Temple followed the form book against Pitt. But it was a wild one between Rowan and West Chester. Rowan ran out to a 10-0 halftime lead and doubled that before West Chester mounted a comeback. Flyhalf Nick Udovich scored two tries to pace West Chester to a stirring comeback and a 22-20 victory.

That keeps West Chester unbeaten.

Chesapeake

Mary Washington didn't surprise in winning 54-15 over Maryland, but James Madison shutting out Virginia Tech was a huge surprise. Tech came into the game 2-1 with a legitimate shot at 2nd in the conference. But JMU rebounded from a tight loss two weeks ago and with fullback Brian Hay-Stuart scoring three tries, regain control of the team's conference destiny.

Meanwhile, Salisbury was bringing some surprises of its own, beating Mount St. Mary's 21-5 to hand the Mount its first loss of the season.

Tries from Cam Hoppman, Kristopher Gough, and Diontre Thomas paced the Sharks as they moved to 2-2.

SCRC

Alabama is for real, and proved it with a 52-12 dismissal of Kennesaw State. Kentucky beat Ole Miss by 48, and those two teams could be among the top two of the conference. Meanwhile, on tour during fall break, Tennessee logged a 22-20 win over D1A team Arkansas.


Ivy League

Brown and Yale are fighting for a chance to be at least somewhat close to Dartmouth. The key is to get 2nd or 3rd, and therefore not face Dartmouth in the semis. Brown has an excellent shot after beating Yales 32-12.

NCRC

The Northwest finally got an actual game played after two forfeited games. Washington State beat Eastern Washington and is now 2-0.


MAC

Two shockers in the MAC. Perennial conference winner Bowling Green was upended 29-24 Saturday by Western Michigan. Led by some strong work from hooker Manny Bravo (WMU captain), No. 8 Joey Backe (vice captain), and prop forward Ivan Delgado, 

John Drozd, Delgado, prop Jackson Day, and flanker Daniel Howard also scored trie, with Howard adding three conversions and a penalty goal for 14 points on his own.

Cincinnati slammed Ohio 38-7 in a result that could do wonders for the team's ranking.

Independence

Lindenwood-Belleville is playing an independent schedule and won easily over Kansas. Next week against Kentucky could be the most important game of the fall.
