Bridgewater turned back the clock more than a decade, while UW-Whitewater turned it back even further on Saturday. Bridgewater did it with a win, while UW-Whitewater did it with a defeat. No. 4 St. Thomas lost a non-conference game for the first time under Glenn Caruso as well.

Concordia-Moorhead defeated No. 15 UW-Whitewater 25-17, sending the Warhawks to 0-2 for the first time since 1999. Whitewater had the ball at its own 34 with 3:01 left in the game and drove to what had been their house of horrors last week, the 1-yard line. The Warhawks were stopped on third down, and on fourth down, Alex Berg burst through and shut down Drew Patterson for a 2-yard loss, allowing the Cobbers to run out the clock. 

Patterson had fumbled earlier in the fourth quarter on his own 4-yard line and Concordia was able to capitalize for the touchdown which put the Cobbers up eight. Dallas Raftevold had two big plays defensively for the Cobbers, with an interception and the forced fumble on Patterson.

"This is as big as it comes," said Cobber coach Terry Horan. "The belief our players had and the way they executed the game plan was inspiring. It took a total team effort to beat a great program."

No. 4 St. Thomas fell 25-22 at UW-Stout, marking the first non-conference regular season loss for the Tommies in Glenn Caruso's 10 seasons as coach. The Blue Devils scored and added the two-point conversion wih 1:27 left in the game and the subsequent Tommies drive stalled on the Stout 30. St. Thomas was limited to 100 yards on the ground on 36 carries. Kevion McDonald caught seven passes for 133 yards and two scores, while Josh Malone caught the game-winner. The Tommies had three turnovers, had a field goal blocked, missed a PAT kick, had nine penalties, and converted just 2 of 16 third downs against the UW-Stout defense.

Bridgewater took a 25-14 lead into the fourth quarter and held on, including against a 52-yard field goal attempt as time expired to defeat No. 18 Thomas More 25-23. It's Bridgewater's most significant non-conference win nationally since 2003, when the Eagles went to the national semifinals. 

The defending national champions got off on the right foot, as No. 1 Mary Hardin-Baylor took a 20-0 lead at the half and held on to defeat Sul Ross State, 23-7. In his first start at quarterback, former wide receiver T.J. Josey was 12-for-22 passing for 117 yards and two scores. Sul Ross State managed just 178 yards of total offense.

Trailing 12-7 in the second quarter, No. 7 Linfield did not go the way of its fellow purple partners, scoring the final 20 points to win 27-12 at Chapman. Backed up by a bad snap, Chapman was unable to flip field position at the start of the fourth quarter and Linfield took a fair catch on a punt at the Panthers 48. Troy Fowler found J.D. Lasswell on the next play for a long touchdown, putting Chapman away. Meanwhile, backup quarterback Aiden Wilder had three carries for 57 yards in a relief effort for the Wildcats as well.

No. 12 Delaware Valley overwhelmed Lycoming 34-3 for its first win in Williamsport since 2011. Devauntay Ellis ran for 178 yards and two scores and the Aggies defense held the Warriors to just three first downs. No. 14 Illinois Wesleyan gave up 478 yards of total offense, but just 17 of them on the ground as the Titans defeated Nebraska Wesleyan 42-21.

David Tammaro threw for three touchdowns, the last of them with 24 seconds left in the game as No. 16 Johns Hopkins rallied past Susquehanna 38-34. Tammaro found Brett Caggiano for an 8-yard score, his first TD and 10th catch of the game.

No. 25 Brockport passed its first test as a ranked team with flying colors. The Golden Eagles blanked Ithaca 31-0, marking the first time Brockport had shut out Ithaca since the 2002 season, a year Brockport made the national quarterfinals. 

It was another day to empty the bench at No. 8 St. John's, as 13 players got carries in a 49-14 win vs. Presentation. Similarly, No. 3 UW-Oshkosh crushed Virginia-Lynchburg 74-7, No. 5 Wheaton defeated Kalamazoo 58-6, 10th-ranked Hardin-Simmons obliterated Texas College 74-0 and No. 11 Frostburg State defeated TCNJ 49-14. No. 23 Washington & Jefferson scored the first 47 in a 47-7 win vs. Grove City, while No. 24 Whitworth cruised at Whittier.
