Undefeated no more

Gettysburg was undefeated and riding high until Muhlenberg came to town. Mules sophomore linebacker Kyle Wilczynski helped set the tone on the fourth play from scrimmage, making a one-handed interception and returning it 31 yards for a touchdown on the fourth play from scrimmage in a 41-13 win. It's the D3football.com Play of the Week.

We solicit video of top plays from every Division III football program and this was our top clip.

Week 7 Play of the Week finalists

Here are some great plays which deserved extra mention:


Trailing 31-23 with just over three minutes left, Hiram safety Ronnie Jones picked off a tipped pass and refused to go down, returning it for a touchdown to cut Ohio Wesleyan's lead to 31-29.  Hiram went on to win on a last second field goal.


Pierre Noel has had some great catches for Norwich already this year. Here's another one, a 29-yard catch to set up a touchdown as Norwich went on to beat SUNY-Maritime 30-22.


After King's scores to take the lead with less than a minute left, Lycoming is driving with a chance to win the game. After a long pass, Anthony Martuccio strips the ball from the wide receiver and King's recovers the fumble to seal the 30-26 win.


Freshman Robbie Hillier II returned Elmhurst's attempt at a 34-yard field goal in the third quarter 76 yards for a score after teammate David Simmons Jr. came up with the block. The play keyed a second half surge in a 24-14 win.
