  1. A Couple Upsets in Week 2, and an Intriguing Week 3

    After an opening week that went chalk for the most part, we had a much more exciting second week. Two big upsets went down, and four of the six road teams won their games in Week 2. Here’s a quick rundown:

    Nebraska Kearney 31
    Central Oklahoma 27


    In the first of the two upsets, the Lopers found themselves 2-0 for the first time as members of the the MIAA after winning a tough, back and forth game against the Bronchos. Luke Quinn scored the game winning touchdown ...

  2. Football is back, Week 2 Previews, and a KC Surprise

    The opening week of the MIAA season was a relatively exciting one, as only one game was a true blowout and the Game of the Week lived up to its expectations. The results in our conference were pretty similar to what happened around the country in the top 25: a small number of lopsided victories, several games where the margin of victory wasn’t huge but the outcome of the game wasn’t really in doubt in the second half, and a few others that came down to the wire. Unlike the top 25, however, ...

  3. 2018 MIAA Preview

    It’s kind of hard to believe, but the offseason is just about over and Division II football is about to kick off its season. The MIAA had an uncharacteristic poor showing in then playoffs last year, but the good news is that it seems the overall field across the country is wide open, so the chances for a repeat of last year should be pretty slim. While the conference didn’t fare well in the playoffs, the MIAA went 4-0 in bowl games last year, so there is certainly something to build on around ...

  4. 2017 Comes to a Close

    For just the second time since 2003, the MIAA season came to an end during the quarterfinals of the playoffs. It was also just the second time in that span where there was not a playoff game featuring an MIAA team and the last teams playing were in bowl games, with 2014 being the other year in that timeframe. Oddly enough, that year was also the first time since 2008 that we had a new National Champion in the division, and we are guaranteed to have a first time champion this year. It’s even ...

  5. The MIAA Goes Bowling and a Look Back at Playoff History

    A magical season came to an end in Hays this past weekend, as the Tigers lost their first game of the season to Ferris State in the second round of the playoffs by a score of 31-21. Fort Hays State, playing in their first playoff game since 1995, hung tough for roughly the first 35 minutes of the game, as a 66 yard Kenneth Iheme TD run early in the third quarter cut the FSU lead to 10-7. But the bigger Bulldogs finally wore down the Tiger defense in the second half, scoring touchdowns on three ...
