  1. Mattei takes advantage of second chance to lead WCU

    After two straight losing seasons, and three straight without a post season invitation, West Chester appears to be back where they belong – battling for first place in the PSAC East and setting themselves up for another playoff run. The Golden Rams are 4-1 (4-0 against division II) and coming off their biggest win in four years with an upset of #6 California last Saturday. Their only loss was a resptectable performance at FCS powerhouse Delaware in the first game of the year. In that game, however, ...

  2. West Chester upsets #6 California

    Coming into week five, West Chester knew they had a great opportunity to put their name back on the Division II map if they could pull off an upset at #6 California. Few, including me, thought they could do it. Adamson Stadium hasn't been too kind to the Golden Rams in recent years and (oh, by the way) those Vulcans are pretty darned good too. No one in SR1 had a resume like Cal's. After comebacks against Kutztown and IUP, Cal had every reason to stay composed and believe they could pull out the ...

  3. Back to East v. West for the PSAC

    Are we really at week five already? Gosh, this goes faster every year… Normally, divisional play continues uninterrupted until champions are crowned and the final week matchups are determined. But this year, after just two rounds of divisional games, we go back to cross-overs , with four games at Eastern division schools and four at Western division schools. The schedule has a few lopsided looking affairs, but there are some very even matchups including Edinboro at LIU Post and East Stroudsburg ...

  4. Coal Bowl IV slips away from IUP

    In its post game story, IUP's sports information department called the Coal Bowl loss to California "gut-wrenching." I can imagine it must have been. Losing to a rival in a battle of unbeatens is tough to take no matter how you look at it, but Saturday's loss was especially crushing for IUP. Coal Bowl IV was easily within their grasp, but four special teams plays in the final two minutes proved to be the difference.

    The Crimson Hawks took their first lead of the day (24-17) with ...

  5. Coal Bowl IV takes center stage in the PSAC

    For the fourth straight week, the PSAC schedule will feature a matchup of two top 25 teams. #21 Indiana will travel to #6 California for the fourth installment of the Coal Bowl, in what should be the biggest game of the year in the PSAC Western division. In the Eastern division, Kutztown will try to bounce back from two straight losses and Bloomsburg will visit LIU-Post in an attempt to avenge last year’s loss at Redman Stadium.

    Before we go any further…BEWARE…The PSAC pointed ...
