  1. News and Notes from Week 5 in the PSAC

    It was roughly one year ago that Seton Hill stunned the PSAC with an upset of highly favored Slippery Rock. The Griffins came very close to doing it again at IUP. The Griffins had IUP’s defense on the ropes for much of game and even led at halftime. Turnovers down the stretch killed nearly all of their fourth quarter drives and wiped out their chances for a huge upset.

    The critical moment for IUP (4-0) came early in the fourth quarter. The Crimson Hawks received the second half kickoff ...

  4. The Four Quarters of the PSAC - First Quarter

    If you’ve been following the PSAC blog for a couple of years, you know how this goes. If this is your first season, let me briefly summarize. We have a total of 16 teams in the conference, which makes for a nice round number to divide into quarters. Every three weeks (roughly a quarter of the season) I stack rank the teams and take a look at how they’ve done so far and look forward to what’s ahead.

    So far, we’ve had one week of out of conference action and two rounds of East ...

    Week three in the PSAC football schedule brings us the last round of East-West crossover play until the final week of the season. The West throttled the East in the first round of crossovers with a 7-1 record. I'm predicting a few more East victories this weekend, but the balance of power is still on the Western side of the state. Here is the rundown for week 3...
