Although in town, it is never easy to go into the other team’s facility and pick up a win. Both road team’s struggled in this one and both road team’s were higher rated. Neither game had a conference championship on the line, but both lower rated teams were looking for upsets to try and secure a spot in the respective NAIA National tournament. Continue reading
The Victory Sports Network splits this week to cover two games that have postseason and conference championship implications written all over them. MidAmerica Nazarene hosts Missouri Valley in one of the top ten battles this week. The Pioneers defeated Lindenwood earlier this season and are in the driver’s seat to win the Heart of America Athletic Conference. One scenario is pretty simple; if the Pioneers win they are conference champions. If Missouri Valley is victorious in this game and the Vikings and Lions win out there would be a three way tie at the top of the conference. Continue reading

There is a lot of talent on the side of the red and silver, but when rivals meet and are playing for so much there is no telling what might happen. Continue reading

Some folks are expressing interest in Carroll College and Saint Xavier as well. What if we had a repeat for the national championship this season? Would the same teams win? How do they match-up?
