Gardner Webb's FCS opponents have a combined record against FCS Competition of 22-1.

The one game their opponents lost was a logical necessity. Wofford beat western carolina

GWU lost a close game yesterday to a good NC Central team.

BTW, NC A & T may well go undefeated and win the whole thing. You heard it here first.

unfortunately, the only shot that NCA&T has at the playoffs is if they lose a game and don't play in their postseason bowl game.

The MEAC no longer sends an autobid to the playoffs

Does the champion have a choice whether to play in the bowl game? Somewhere I have it in mind that they do, but the bowl game pays big to the conference.

Chat 20-7 over Sam in 3rd qtr
That is good of course but it can be bad too. Bad because Terriers play Chat next and that will not be an easy game.

FU 7-0 over WCU halftime

A loss for either team will probably put them out of the SoCon title

Chatt had crucial TO and Samford now up by 1 with five minutes to go. Chatt freshman QB looks shaky, and gets sacked a lot.

Chatt has some really big dudes.

Chatt has ball down by 1 with 2:30 left and one timeout.

FU up 21-0 in fourth quarter over WCU.

Chatt hits FG with 19 seconds left to go up 2.

Western's QB went out with a knee injury and it doesn't look like the Catamounts will recover

FU thumps WCU 28-6! With the Chatty win, does that put the Terriers alone in 1st place now?

Nope, we're tied with Furman for the top.

Better hope Samford or Citadel pull the upset against Furman and we win out

Watching Samford it was painful how one dimensional they have become. We may not have been able to stop them, but it would be hard to see them go far in the playoffs. Every other team in the league seems more balanced on offense. If they truly have a number of injuries they are in trouble. Chatty, unfortunately, seems to be waking from their nightmare. Furman just put a whooping on Western. Mercer may be glad they didn't have to play this weekend. Five weeks ago we said you could throw a blanket on every team and see who comes out. I still think we have the best players for our system and team. Something is missing, and I had hoped they found it last week. We showed flashes of erratic brilliance once again. Who will show up next Saturday?

We are in 1st place. As we have been all season. All we have to do is take care of our business and everything we wanted from our season takes place. We will win the SoCon and be seeded for the playoffs. We beat Furman already. And they have Citadel and Samford left. I don’t think they win out anyway. All we need to do is handle our business and we are SoCon Champs.........2 wins......o
