I'll just keep the one thread for the remainder of the season and add onto it, just fyi...

MVFC Playoff Games
Saturday, December 1st
2:00 PM - Montana State at #1 North Dakota State
2:00 PM - Duquesne at #5 South Dakota State
6:00 PM - Northern Iowa at #6 UC Davis

Other Games
11/30 at 6:00 PM - Northern Illinois vs Buffalo, ESPN2 (MAC Championship Game, Ford Field in Detroit)
7:00 PM - #21 Northwestern vs #6 Ohio State, FOX (Big 10 Championship Game, Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis)
All of the above plus Iowa should be playing in bowl games in the next few weeks as well. Illinois finished 4-8, so their season is done.

Colgate looked good in their win over JMU. However, IMO their coach screwed up at end of game by letting clock get down to only 3 seconds before trying the FG. I am pretty sure the kick was done not on 4th down so no chance to handle a bad snap situation if that would have happened.

Good luck against the Bison. This is IMHO the most dominant NDSU team I have seen since I have been keeping track of conference stats. They led conference in every defensive stat category. On offense, their only stat weakness was passing yardage but when you can run the ball like they do, why waste the effort passing the ball.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));
