No. 8 Hardin-Simmons' struggles to hold onto the football came back to bite the Cowboys in a game under the lights at Mississippi College. The Choctaws returned an interception into the red zone and took a 21-14 lead shortly before halftime and did not look back on the way to a 45-28 win.

Third-ranked Mary Hardin-Baylor got 30 carries and 222 yards from Darius Wilson and survived a late comeback attempt from McMurry 28-27. The War Hawks were one of three teams to go for the win with a two-point conversion attempt against a Top 25 team and fail.

No. 10 Montclair State needed to stop Morrisville State's two-point conversion and recover an onside kick to hang on for the victory over the Mustangs, 20-19. Morrisvlle State quarterback Lemar Johnson threw a touchdown pass to Josh Powell with 21 seconds left to draw the Mustangs within one point at 20-19. Instead of going for the tie, the Mustangs went for the win, but Johnson's rushing attempt was stopped and the Redhawks recovered the ensuing onside kick to seal the victory.

No. 12 Ohio Northern scored a touchdown and kicked the extra point to take a 34-27 lead on Otterbein in overtime. On the Cardinals' extra possession, Austin Schlosser found Brock Burzanko for the touchdown. Instead of going for the tie, the Cardinals went for two and the win. Schlosser's pass was incomplete and the the Polar Bears hung on for the 34-33 victory.

One week after upsetting Wesley, No. 18 Kean picked up another big win, this time on the road. The Cougars defeated No. 11 Cortland State 21-16 thanks to an 89-yard kick return for a touchdown by Will Evans. 

Top-ranked UW-Whitewater won its 33rd consecutive game, having little trouble with Campbellsville, 54-14. Campbellsville was ranked No. 17 in the NAIA's coaches poll. Levell Coppage and Desmin Ward combined for 209 rushing yards and quarterback Matt Blanchard was out before halftime in the win. Jeremy Murray ran for 254 yards on 20 carries as No. 2 Mount Union rolled past John Carroll 58-7.
