We hit the halfway point last week and now enter the second half of the season. Games are bigger and teams need to play their best if they are going to have a chance at hoisting the trophy in November.
New Haven (3-2, 3-1 NE-10) @ Assumption (4-1, 3-1 NE-10)
When: October 9th, 7:00 PM
All-Time Series: Series tied at 4
My Thoughts: First place is on the line.
New Haven stumbled at home to Merrimack by the score

Let me get this straight. Tusculum passed for a total of 20 yards on Saturday against Brevard, Newberry lost its first Division II game of the season to Catawba, Wingate won by less than a touchdown to Limestone, and Mars Hill was the second SAC team to fall prey to North Greenville in four weeks? Not to mention that Carson-Newman was wiped out by Lenoir-Rhyne to the tune of 52-17 where the Bears only punted and passed the pigskin on one occasion.
That's hard to comprehend.

From the GAC Press Release on October 5, 2015:

GAC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – Jaquan Cole, Henderson State, RB, Jr.,
You might remember the clip of former Green Bay head coach Vince Lombardi yelling "What the hell is going on out here?" Well, that is the perfect way to explain the first half of the NE-10 season.
Last Saturday was the wildest ride that I can remember as everything hit the fan at the same time. Winless teams defeated undefeated teams. Struggling teams seemed to play like championship teams and it was just one of the most incredible days ever.
You can't get much better than that down in Southern California on Saturday night. Well, for Central Washington at least. Azusa Pacific might have something different to say about the 24-21 score.
Long story short, Azusa jumped out to a 21-7 lead only to be skunked in the entire second half by CWU, who would go on to score the next 17 points by the end of the third quarter. Both teams were held scoreless in the fourth quarter, but that looked like it would change
