December 7, 2019 North Central Shuts Down DelVal to Advance to Semifinals After winning its second-round game in as wild an offensive shootout as the NCAA Division III Football Championship has seen, the North Central College Cardinals turned to their defense to put them in position to win their national quarterfinal matchup on Saturday at Benedetti-Wehrli Stadium. 
December 6, 2019 North Central National Quarterfinal Preview/Red Zone After a historic second-round victory, the Cardinals are awarded another home game and look to use the home-field advantage to secure a spot in the national semifinals for the second time.
December 3, 2019 North Central refuses to lose The Cardinals stood out on the field in Alliance, Ohio, shortly after defeating Mount Union, and shouted, "I am a champion, and I refuse to lose!"

November 30, 2019 North Central Prevails in Second-Round Shootout at Mount Union It was a game that surpassed all the records, benchmarks and superlative descriptions of a college football game, postseason or otherwise, and the torrid pace set by the offenses of both teams left most spectators figuring the outcome would come down to the last team to possess the ball.  And that was the case in North Central College's second-round NCAA Division III playoff game at the University of Mount Union on Saturday, but after all the points and yards had been piled up, it was a defensive stand which sealed the outcome for the fifth-ranked Cardinals, who took down the Purple Raiders, 59-52, to advance to next week's national quarterfinal.
