AFTER WEEK EIGHT ...

HU put up 602 yards of total offense, 408 of which came on the ground.
The Student Princes have held ther Quakers to three points over the last two seasons.
Baldwin Wallace (2-6) is coming off another heartbreaking loss in the final minute of play. BW dropped their last game to Capital in double overtime following a failed 2-point conversion.
The Yellow Jackets have dropped three straight contests with less than five minutes remaining. Five of their six losses have been by less than a touchdown.
LOOKING AT WEEK NINE ...
Similar to the Heidelberg/BW game, the other four OAC matchups are afternoon affairs.
No. 1 Mount Union (8-0) looks to stay perfect as they travel to Muskingum (3-5). The Muskies look to find their offense after scoring six points combined in their last two games.
Marietta (2-6) hosts Capital (4-4). The Crusaders have turned some heads this year with surprising wins, including a double overtime victory over BW last week.
Trying to stay undefeated in conference play, No. 21 John Carroll (7-1) hosts Otterbein (4-4). The Blue Streaks have won seven straight following a Week One loss.
Wilmington (0-8) travels to a resurgent Ohio Northern (4-4) searching for their first win of the season. The Polar Bears have rebounded well following a disappointing 1-3 start.
LOOKING BACK AT 2015
The Heidelberg University football team dropped their season finale on the road to Baldwin Wallace University 44-31. After HU tied the game at 31, BW went on to score 13 unanswered fourth quarter points to defeat the Berg.
The Yellow Jackets took an early 10-0 lead, but HU tied the score thanks to a field goal by Stephen Smith and a touchdown pass from Tyler Stoyle to Demetrius Magee. With eight seconds left in the half, BW scored to give them a seven point lead at the break. Stoyle connected with Zach Hogya to tie the game at 17, but the Yellow Jackets responded and took another 7-point advantage. A 9-yard TD run from Bryan Lacey pulled the Berg to within one, but a failed PAT could not tie the score at 24. BW extended their lead to eight with a minute left to play in the third quarter. On their first drive of the fourth quarter, HU evened the score at 31. Stoyle found Hogya again and completed a two-point conversion to Braden Jerome. The home team went on to score 13 unanswered points to cap off the victory.
Stoyle was 23-38 for 342 yards and three touchdowns. Lacey led the way on the ground with 182 rushing yards and a touchdown. Magee had seven grabs for 138 yards and a TD, while Hogya chipped in with six catches for 77 yards and two scores.
