MIT and Kalamazoo picked up their first losses of the season, while Eureka remained unbeatn and Marietta and Central lost for the second week in a row after unbeaten starts in Saturday's Division III football action.
LeAnthony Reasnover scored five touchdowns, the last of them with 18 seconds left in the game to lift Eureka to a 48-45 win vs. Concordia (Wis.). Reasnover took the handoff and hit the line, then bounced right and took it to the end zone for the clinching score. It was Reasnover's 48th carry. He finished with 320 yards.
Spencer Herrington connected on two fourth-quarter field goals in adverse conditions — one from 41 yards and one from 31 — with less than six minutes left, and Julian Nyland connected with Nic Rossi for a 19-yard touchdown in the second quarter, and WPI defeated MIT, 13-6, on Homecoming. It is the first loss of the season for MIT. WPI has won the last nine games in the matchup.
Jamaul Martin rushed for 196 yards to help Olivet come back to beat MIAA co-leader Kalamazoo 21-17, handing the Hornets their first loss. Olivet finished the game with 319 yards, 236 on the ground and 83 through the air. After Kalamazoo took the lead in the third quarter, the Comets were forced to punt on their next drive. On the punt, a Kalamazoo player was called for a roughing the kicker penalty. Ten plays later, Martin rumbled into the end zone from two yards out. Pollard nailed the PAT kick, and Olivet took the 21-17 lead.
Jimmy Marshall hit a career-long 42-yard field goal as time expired to lift Baldwin Wallace past Marietta 30-28. It was the 12th win for the Yellow Jackets in the past 13 meetings in the series, handing the Pioneers their second loss in as many weeks. Central fell at Coe in overtime as well, 27-24. Blaine Hawkins was knocked out of the game last week at Wartburg, but freshman Brayden Egli performed well in his place. And he went 20-for-30 for 197 yards on Saturday as well, including forcing overtime with a clutch nine-play, 70-yard fourth-quarter drive. The Dutch limited Coe to a 31-yard Tristan Connell field goal in the overtime. But on Central's second play of its possession, the Dutch attempted a halfback pass that was intercepted, knocking the Dutch out of the first-place tie in the ARC.

The Generals fell a game further back because De'Eric Bell rushed for 122 yards and three touchdowns to lead Guilford to a 40-3 victory. The result marked Guilford's fewest points allowed in a game since 2016 and the fewest given up to the Generals since a 28-0 shutout in 1968. The Quakers forced four turnovers.
