But I still wanted to throw out my predictions and offer a look at some out-of-conference games you should be keeping an eye on.
So here’s my predicted winners in this week’s MIAA games.

It's not unusual for a couple of possessions to determine the outcome of the game. What doesn't happen very often, though, is 3 touchdowns in a 2-and-a-half minute span without the other team ever taking a snap on offense.
With the help of Pitt State K Connor Frazzell's short, high kicks in the second quarter of their homecoming date in Maryville, that's exactly what happened and the No. 15 Gorillas spoiled Northwest Missouri's homecoming party, knocking off top-ranked Northwest Missouri
