1) The Big Story

No. 1 NDSU 23 No. 3 SDSU 16

The showdown in Brookings was well worth the wait.

Adam Coffield broke loose on a 4th and inches from the Bizon’s own 29 yardline with 2 and half minutes remaining for the game winner. Jack’s QB J’Bore Gibbs went down in the first half with a leg injury and did not return. NDSU rushed it for 332 yards to the Jackrabbits 220. Neither team moved the ball much through the air and didn’t even try to with a total of 30 attempts between the two teams.

Other embarrassing.exciting finishes, Campbell blocked punt to force OT, St. Francis misses 25 yard chip shot that would have won the game. Cornell drives the length of the field with :36 seconds to play to nail game winning field goal. Northwestern State gets their first win of the season in OT on the road against an on the rise Incarnate Word.

A Nicholls fan reached out on social media hoping to tailgate with some EWU folks with the promise of Cajun food. Kris invited him up....listen in to hear a good story about FCS fans and the good bonds that are easily made between fan bases.

TOPIC 1: Games

Maine 55 Jacksonville State 27

Weber State 48 Southeast Missouri State 23

North Dakota State 52 Montana State 10

Colgate 23 James Madison 20

South Dakota State 51 Duquesne 6

Kennesaw State 13 Wofford 10

Eastern Washington 42 Nicholls State 21

UC Davis 23 Northern Iowa 16

Topic 2: What did we learn?

1) Maine and Weber have offenses

2) The Playoff Commitee got the seeds right

3) Less rationalization can mean two conferences get 5 teams in the quarters. Is that a bad thing?

This wee's look back at the big games from last week goes a little something like this:

James Madison 13 Stony Brook 10

Delaware 40 Towson 36

Western Illinois 37 Northern Iowa 17

South Dakota State 38 Illinois State 28

Weber State 35 North Dakota 30

A trip down the AGS Poll is next up as usual to see who should be where and how the voters did this week...according to these two soothsayers.

Next up Lance & Kris go over some things they think we all learned this week including...

Conference title and especially auto-bid races are looking to getting exciting while a few appear to be all but clinched including MVFC, Southland, & Patriot.

Northern Iowa hates letting their fans feel comfortable in November.

The OVC may very well be a 2 bid league.

Colgate’s defense is nasty good.

Topic 1: Preseason Poll
Preseason ballots and the way a voter (these two at least) comes up with their T25 submission.  It involves a little help from SID's around the country, surfing websites, and generally being attentive in the off season to personnel changes.

Here is the The FCS Wedge topic lineup for the Week 4 Preview.

Samford @ Chattanooga

The Bulldogs need this game more than the Mocs do, will that make a difference?

Sacramento State @ Montana

Montana is giving up less than 70 yards rushing per game but the Hornet’s Kevin Thompson is a very capable passer averaging around 300 yards per game so far this year.

Sam Houston State @ Nicholls State

Is this a must win game for either team?

Richmond @ Stony Brook

Seems like this could be a very good, close game in the CAA this week.

Idaho @ UC-Davis This is the first Big Sky game for Idaho since 1995 when they beat Boise State University in both teams final game in the BSC before their move to FBS.

Casey Kasem visited me in a dream and asked me to include that the #1 song that week was...

Lance & Kris get right into the action with some look backs.

Topic 1:

Kennesaw State 51 Monmouth 10

Towson 41 Elon 10

Stony Brook 21 Delaware 3

Some teams possibly exiting the playoffs in round -2 this last week as well:

Youngstown 31 UNI 10

Murray State 40 SEMO 38

Murray State 37 Northwestern State 34

South Dakota 17 WIU 12

The Citadel 42 Samford 27

Topic 2: The AGS Poll for the penultimate playoff rankings.

Topic 3: What did we learn?

1. The bubble is pretty rough.

2. Eastern Washington has a defense? They also have a priority on the running attack? Next up....NDSU develops a new air raid offense for the Bison.

3. After a roller coaster year, Maine needs to win 1 home game to be sole CAA conference champions.
