Three ranked teams handed three unbeaten teams their first loss of the season on Saturday.

Andrew Norri broke up two passes in the end zone on consecutive plays in the first half and picked off two Mitch Hendricks passes in the end zone in the fourth quarter as No. 22 St. John's rallied past Gustavus Adolphus 29-19. The Johnnies picked off Hendricks, one of the leading passers in Division III, three times and limited him to 31-for-54 passing. Sam Sura rushed for 205 yards and two scores for St. John's.

It's the first defeat for Gustavus. The Gusties had started 6-0, with their best win at Augsburg in Week 4.

Eleventh-ranked Bethel had little trouble giving Chicago its first loss of the season, as the Royals' Erik Peterson completed 19 of 23 passes for five touchdowns in the win. Chicago, which entered the weekend 5-0, had its best win in Week 5, defeating Rhodes 17-14 at home.

Holton Walker had 275 yards receiving for No. 25 Hampden-Sydney, setting a school record as the Tigers handed Emory and Henry their first loss of the season in dominating fashion, 49-27. The Wasps had started the season 5-0 for the first time since 1998, with their best win at Bridgewater last week.

Pacific beat Pacific Lutheran for the first time since Frosty Westering's first year as head coach, as the Boxers knocked off the No. 18 Lutes 31-28. Jakob Lawrence's touchdown with 4:09 left in the game proved to be the difference, and the Pacific defense held off PLU twice in the closing minutes to preserve the win. PLU had won 17 consecutive games in the series.

No. 14 UW-Platteville jumped out to a 24-0 halftime lead and cruised to a 31-13 win vs. No. 13 UW-Stevens Point, handing their Pointers their first loss of the season as well. Platteville allowed the Pointers just 62 yards in the first half and 191 for the game. 

Lousiana College failed to convert on an onside kick to open the game and No. 2 Mary Hardin-Baylor marched out to a 24-0 lead and held on from there to beat Louisiana College 45-24. Zach Anderson made the Wildcats pay with a 43-yard touchdown pass to Wykeyhe Walker on the first play from scrimmage. UMHB turned the ball over four times, however.

Bethany held No. 20 Washington and Jefferson to season-lows in points and total yardage, but that wasn't nearly enough as Ryan Ruffing ran for 157 yards to lead the Presidents to a 34-3 win.

No. 3 Mount Union and No. 7 John Carroll remained on course for their Week 11 clash as each won to improve to 6-0. B.J. Mitchell ran for 184 yards and two scores and Roman Namdar and Taurice Scott each caught five passes for more than 100 yards as the Purple Raiders defeated Heidelberg 58-17. Heidelberg did manage 407 yards of total offense but gave up 746 yards. John Carroll took last week's 69 points and went two scores better as the Blue Streaks crushed Marietta 80-0, scoring the second-most points in program history.

Aaron Wilmer connected with Rasheed Bailey for two fourth quarter touchdowns as No. 24 Delaware Valley pulled away from Stevenson, 35-13. Chris Smallwood ran for 147 yards and three touchdowns. No. 17 Widener similarly put Wilkes away, as Seth Klein threw six touchdowns in a 59-13 win. 

Wesley traveled 2,900 miles and its offense added another 661 yards as the No. 4 Wolverines crushed Menlo 70-2. St. John Fisher rolled up 533 yards of total offense, 338 of them on the ground, and pitched a shutout for the first 55 minutes of the game as the No. 16 Cardinals defeated Utica 42-7.
