Division 3 football’s must watch games for week 6

Tyler grew up on a farm but had no animals. He had a great year with Benedictines.

Hi, I’m Justin Berendzen (@jrberendzen on Twitter) here are my Division 3 matches for week 6

1. Emory + Henry College at Rudolph-Macon College

Emory Henry and Rudolph-Macon will be a good match on Saturday October 9th. Emory Henry’s offense is led by stallion running back Devontae Jordan. And for Rudolph-Macon, too, they have a pretty good running back in Senior Justin DeLeon. Defensively, Emory Henry has the second DB Addison Knicely who has 12 tackles, 1 sack, 2 interceptions and 5 PBUs. Should be an interesting game that probably depends on what the running backs are doing or not.

2.SUNY Brockport in SUNY Cortland

If you like defense this will be the game you want to watch. We have 2 top 10 overall defenses in that game in Division 3. The SUNY Cortland Red Dragons are led defensively by senior linebacker Paul Imperiale who has 16 tackles and 2.5 TFLs and 1.5 sacks. At Brockport defensive they have Senior Defensive End Josh Greenwood, who has had 23 tackles, 5 tackles for loss, 2 sacks and 5 QB hits so far this season. Offensively, Brockport has a good running back Jala Coad who has 557 rushing yards and 6 rushing touchdowns so far this season. Should be an interesting game.

3. University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse

The Titans of Oshkosh will face the Eagles of La Crosse in La Crosse on Saturday and this will be a fight. The second receiver Tony Steger is the top receiver for Oshkosh with 213 yards and 1 touchdown. For La Crosse they are headed offensively by junior running back Joey Stutzman who has 417 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns plus a receiving touchdown. Defensively, Oshkosh is led by freshman defensive back Carson Raddatz, who has 20 tackles and 1 interception so far this season. And then on the defensive for La Crosse they are led by second linebacker Ryan Daines who has 28 tackles, 10 TFLs and 3 sacks. This game develops into a good all-round game between 2 rated teams.

4. Whitworth University at Linfield University

This matchup consists of 2 top 25 teams and 2 top 25 overall defenses. Whitworth defensively has Senior Defensive Back Bryce Hornbeck who has 18 tackles, 2 TFLs, 3 interceptions and 6 PBUs. For Linfield’s defense, keep an eye on the player, Travis Swanson, who on defense has 14 tackles, 10 TFLs and 3.5 sacks in 3 games. Offense will be very minimal in this game, hopefully there will be someone who can break through offensively in this game because it looks like it will be strong defensive but who knows.

5.Lakeland University at Benedictine University (Illinois)

The Muskies are up against the Eagles in this game, which I think will be an interesting match. The Lakeland Muskies are offensively led by senior running back Larry Rivers, who has 669 yards and 9 touchdowns. The Benedictine (Illinois) Eagles have a good quarterback in Senior Tyler Jarnagin who has thrown 1,648 passyards and 16 touchdowns in the season to date. Lakeland Muskies’ Shazon Crutcher has 36 tackles, 3.5 TFLs and 2.5 sacks. Lakeland also has Senior Defensive Back Rayshion Brumfield who has 15 tackles all solo, 4 TFLs, 2 interceptions and 6 PBUs. For Benedictine (Illinois) they have Senior Defensive Back Denzel Simmon who has 30 tackles, 4.5 TFLs, 2 sacks, 1 interception and 2 PBUs. I think this is a very interesting matchup on both sides of the ball.
