OL Bryan Auvil (T), Tommy DeVito (G), Andrew Kincaid (C), Rob Municchi (G), Willie Britt (T), Muhlenberg

McKoy scored on runs of 15, one, 41, 53 and 71 yards as the Colonials outscored the Lancers 27-7 in the fourth quarter.

RB Domonique Hayden, Jr., Thomas More
Hayden tied the PAC’s single-game rushing record in the Saints’ 44-7 home victory over Grove City, finishing the day with 327 yards on 33 carries and four touchdowns.

Defense

DE Rich Ellebie, Jr., Westminster (Pa.)
Ellebie posted a career-high nine tackles, including two and a half tackles for a loss and a sack, in Westminster's 7-6 win at Bethany. Ellebie, making his first career start, broke up Bethany's third-and-18 pass attempt at its own 20-yard line late in the fourth quarter before senior Dylan Heitmeier blocked the Bison punt and recovered the ball in the end zone for the go-ahead score.

DT Chase Kleopfer, Jr., Wartburg
Kleopfer recorded six tackles for loss, the third-highest in a single game among all Division III players this season. He added four and a half sacks, forced a fumble and had 11 total tackles in Wartburg's 22-15 win vs. Dubuque.

DE Isaac Barber, Sr., Greenville
Barber had eight tackles, seven of them solo, including four sacks as Greenville defeated Northwestern (Minn.) in a battle of contenders for the UMAC title.

LB Adnan Sakiri, Sr., Montclair State
Sakiri posted a game-high 20 tackles, the most by an Montclair State player since 2007 and two short of the school mark set by College Football Hall of Famer Sam Mills against Southern Connecticut in 1979. Sakiri also forced two fumbles and added a tackle for loss in a 34-21 win at Morrisville State.

LB Chris Miller, Fr., Gettysburg
Miller made a game-high 19 tackles, including 11 solo stops and a pair of forced fumbles, in a 34-16 loss to No. 13 Johns Hopkins. Both of his forced fumbles were recovered deep in Bullet territory, allowing Gettysburg to thwart a pair of Hopkins drives.

LB Baylor Mullins, Fr., Mary Hardin-Baylor
Baylor's 23-yard interception return for a touchdown gave the momentum back to the Cru in the third quarter of a 63-7 win at Hardin-Simmons. He also had a team-high nine tackles (seven solo) as UMHB held HSU to season lows of 20 rushing yards, 180 yards of total offense and seven points.

LB John Preston, Jr., Lake Forest
Preston recorded two interceptions as the Forester defense carried their program to a 17-10 victory at Cornell. Preston's first pick led to a Forester field goal, and his second stopped a fourth-quarter drive by the Rams on their 7 yard line. He also had four tackles, three solo.

CB Ed Dobernig, Sr., Lake Forest
Dobernig's fumble return for a TD gave the Foresters their margin of victory in a 17-10 win vs. Cornell. He also had an interception, three pass breakups, and six tackles, five solo.

S Matt Mehlhorn, So., Bethel
A 100-yard interception returned for a touchdown, a blocked field goal, and nine tackles (seven solo) highlighted Mehlhorn's day. With the Gusties threatening to score at the BU 4-yard line, Mehlhorn intercepted Mitch Hendricks and ran it back 100 yards for a Bethel touchdown. Mehlhorn then helped the Royals stop the Golden Gusties for the third time inside the 10-yard line when Mehlhorn blocked a Gustavus field goal attempt. 

S Matthew Benedict, Jr., Middlebury
With 19 tackles, 10 solo, Benedict helped end Trinity (Conn.)'s 14-game winning streak by helping limit the NESCAC's leading rusher to 28 yards on 13 carries. Benedict added a pass breakup and a tackle for loss in the win.

CB Weston Staubus, Sr., Pomona-Pitzer
Staubus made two interceptions and broke up the final play in the end zone (on fourth and goal from the 10) to seal the win in a 31-23 victory vs. La Verne. His second interception and 34-yard return to the La Verne 20 came with the Sagehens leading 21-20 and set up a pivotal touchdown to stretch the lead to eight. 

Special teams

K Max Rottenecker, So., Ithaca
Rottenecker and teammate Garrett Nicholson each made two field goals in Ithaca's 25-22 win over St. John Fisher, successfully converting all four Bomber field goal attempts in the game. They are the only teammates in Division III football to each have multiple field goals in the same game this season. Rottenecker connected from 35 yards in the first quarter and 41 yards in the fourth quarter.

P David Fiumara, So., Moravian
Fiumara punted four times for an average of 53.0 yards per punt in Moravian's 52-42 win vs. Franklin and Marshall. Fiumara put two punts inside the 20-yard line, and his first punt of the game was a career and school record long of 67 yards that just rolled into the end zone for a touchback. He entered the game averaging just 34.0 yards per punt. He also hit a field goal and all seven of his PAT attempts.

ST Dylan Heitmeier, Sr., Westminster (Pa.)
Heitmeier blocked a punt off of the foot of Bethany's Steven Amic and recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown, helping the Titans secure a 7-6 road victory. Heitmeier's touchdown, his first as a Titan, came with just 44 seconds remaining and Bethany holding a 6-0 lead.  

RET Chris Wimby, So., Mary Hardin-Baylor
Wimby had a 71-yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter and he averaged 23.7 yards per return over six punt returns in the win at Hardin-Simmons.
