Monmouth and Sam Houston St. hold the top statistically rated spots among FCS teams in this most recent edition of the Roby Ratings. It’s anticipated by the editor that both of these teams may fall in the ratings after facing one of the several teams from the Missouri Valley Conference or James Madison in the FCS Spring Playoffs. Time will tell.

#78 Richmond (3-0) 0.45

#79 Alabama A&M (2-0) 0.33

#80 Holy Cross (2-0) 0.27

Editor’s Note: It is fully expected that the North Dakota St. Bison may actually beat most of these teams and win another FCS National Title. Their loss to Southern Illinois may have created a statistical anomaly from which they will demonstrate was just that when playoff season begins. Their performance this weekend against the Jackrabbits of South Dakota St. may give a true indication of where ND State’s season will end up. ***Full disclosure must be given as the wife of the editor grew up on the campus of SDSU.***

Bethel University Wildcats on the Spring Prowl

The Bethel Wildcats captured their third straight win of the season, as they beat then 17th ranked University of the Cumberlands 38-14 Friday night at Wildcat Stadium. Bethel moved to 3-0 overall and 3-0 in the MSC. The Patriots dropped to 1-3 on the season.  The Wildcats are currently unranked in the NAIA coach’s poll, although that may be likely to change soon.

The Wildcats employed a balanced attack on Friday, as they tallied 207 yards rushing and 285 via aerial assault. According to head coach Mike Jasper, his offensive line played well and his defensive unit was flying to the ball. If this continues, the Wildcats may very well find themselves playing for an NAIA national championship.

The Wildcats hit the road again next Friday, as they travel to face the 19th ranked Georgetown Tigers (KY) at 2:30 p.m.
