Undefeated Bethel wins to highlight entertaining Week 6

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- And then there was one.

The fifth-ranked Bethel football team took down No. 18-ranked Concordia 45-22 on the Cobbers' home field in Moorhead in a matchup of the final two undefeated teams in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) to highlight an incredibly entertaining day in the conference. 

As a result, the Royals stand alone atop the conference standings with a 5-0 overall record and 3-0 conference mark with two significant tests in their rear-view mirror, and another major one on the immediate horizon. Next Saturday Bethel will host three-time defending MIAC champion and sixth-ranked St. Thomas (4-1, 2-1 MIAC), which used a late defensive stand to hang on for a 20-12 win at resurgent Gustavus (3-2, 2-2 MIAC) Saturday.

Elsewhere in the MIAC, No. 25 Saint John's (5-1, 3-1 MIAC) held off a late rally by (RV) Augsburg (3-2, 2-2 MIAC) to score a 30-28 victory in front of the home fans in Collegeville. Hamline (2-3, 1-3 MIAC) had a historic 31-28 win at St. Olaf (1-5, 0-4 MIAC) to give the Pipers their first conference victory since 2009 and first-year Head Coach Chad Rogosheske his first road and MIAC win. In nonconference action, Carleton (3-2, 1-2 MIAC) pummeled Macalester (2-3) 56-17 to retain possession of the "Book of Knowledge" rivalry trophy.

Bethel came away with the most impressive performance of Week 6 as it raced out to a 28-0 lead and cruised to a 45-22 victory at Concordia (4-1, 2-1 MIAC). The Royals rolled up 523 yards of total offense and created five turnovers on defense to emerge as the only MIAC team without a loss in 2013. Bethel's big win came a week after knocking off previously unbeaten Augsburg, 31-28, and a week prior to squaring off against No. 6 St. Thomas.

The MIAC's top individual performers from week four are listed below, as well as links to box scores and coverage from all the action across a high-scoring second weekend of conference play. Fans can follow the action all season long on the MIAC football scoreboard, or by downloading the MIAC app for Apple or Android devices.
