Our friends in the NJAC make for another start to a three-game weekend. In fact, this is the only Friday night game involving a Division III schooll We sent you a pretty long way last week so we're going to take it easy on your sleep patterns and give you an easy Friday night. In exchange, though, you have some stressful driving between Saturday's games. We start with Montclair State at TCNJ, which is the longest-running series between Division III schools in New Jersey. It's a short drive down to Delaware to see Huntingdon at Wesley, and we need to pick them up here because we're not going to get any road trips that include a stop in Alabama. It's a good thing this is a noon game, because it's then a three-hour drive, though only 172 miles, to see Bridgewater at Shenandoah (pictured) at 7 p.m. It's the Washington, D.C., traffic in between that causes heartburn. But with the two schools only about a hundred miles apart, playing under the lights, it should be a good atmosphere, even if Shenandoah has struggled lately.

If you'd rather drive more, you can take the seven-hour trip after the Friday night game down to see Greensboro at Ferrum and then double back a couple hours on a tight connection to see Guilford at Washington & Lee. Or you can head West on Friday night and see games at Defiance and Anderson on Saturday.

Total: Three games, 286 miles start to finish.
