PLAY 1: Catholic vs. Bridgewater
  PLAY 2: Guilford vs. Emory & Henry
Description: Bridgewater hit a 44-yard field goal with 14:55 to play to bring the Eagles to within 28-13.  They went for an onside kick on the ensuing kickoff, but Catholic turned the tables.  Ben Powers not only recovered the bouncing ball, but he returned it 45 yards for a touchdown to effectively seal the Cardinals eventual 42-19 win.  The victory secured CUA's first winning campaign since 2008.   Description: Trailing 31-21 with less than seven minutes to play, Matt Pawlowski faced the E&H rush head-on and found Chad Christopher in the corner of the end zone with a 14-yard touchdown pass, the Quakers' fourth touchdown in as many possessions. Christopher stretched to make the finger-tip catch for his first college score in two seasons. The PAT was good and Guilford pulled to within 31-28 on its way to a surprising 35-31 win after trailing 31-0 in the third quarter.


PLAY 3: Hampden-Sydney vs. Randolph-Macon
  PLAY 4: Randolph-Macon vs. Hampden-Sydney
Description: After R-MC back Will McGhee notched his second touchdown of the game, the score stood 28-26 in H-SC's favor with 1:35 to play.  The Yellow Jackets got two shots at a two-point conversion thanks to a defensive penalty on the first try.  On the second attempt, linebacker Tyler Ikwild stood up McGhee before he could get to the goal line, thwarting the two-point attempt and effectively sealing the Tigers' win and accompanying ODAC title.
  Description: With R-MC trailing 14-7 early in the second quarter, the Yellow Jacket defense stopped H-SC quarterback Nash Nance for no gain on a 4th-and-2 run at the R-MC 34. On the first play of the ensuing drive, running back Will McGhee burtst thru the line for 66 yards and a game-tying touchdown. The carry gave McGhee the school-record for rushing yards in a season, a total that would eventually reach 1,676 yards, the second-most all-time in the ODAC.


PLAY 1: Shenandoah vs. Washington and Lee
Description: Trailing 7-0 after W&L opened the game with a touchdown, Cedrick Delaney added some excitement for SU on just their second play from scrimmage.  He took a misdirection bubble screen from Justin Neff, alluded at least one defender and then darted 70 yards for the tying score.  SU eventually won the contest, 21-14 in overtime, ending their second ODAC season with three more wins than in 2012.
