A Look Back at Week 6’s Top Matchups


#2 Iowa Western (5-1) 38
#5 Georgia Military (6-0) 48

No. 2 Iowa Western saw their 18-game win streak – the longest in the nation – come to an end Saturday in a 48-38 loss at No. 5 Georgia Military. Despite posting 28 points in the fourth quarter, Iowa Western was no match for Bulldogs freshman running back Jovon Robinson who ran the ball 34 times for 229 yards and two touchdowns. Freshman safety Corey Neely led Georgia Military’s defensive effort with two of the team’s four interceptions. The Bulldogs swung momentum in their favor with freshman Perfect Robinson’s 28-yard fumble return for a touchdown on the opening kickoff of the second half.

#4 Copiah-Lincoln (4-1) 47
#9 Jones County (5-0) 50

No. 9 Jones County succeeded in turning their battle against No. 4 Copiah-Lincoln into a shootout as they outscored the Wolves, 50-47. The Bobcats found a difference maker in sophomore running back Justin Harris who ran for 100 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries. Jones County’s receiving corps was led by sophomore Quartez Cooks and freshman Rodregus Ducksworth who both surpassed the century mark in receiving yards. Copiah-Lincoln had a strong showing from freshman quarterback Daniel Fitzwater who threw for 340 yards and four touchdowns – all to sophomore wide receiver Casey Gladney.


Trinity Valley (3-2) 35
#1 Navarro (4-1) 7

One week after moving to No. 1 in the NJCAA football poll, top-ranked Navarro was stunned Saturday by a 35-7 defeat at the hands of visiting Trinity Valley.  Sophomore quarterback Ryan Polite led the Cardinals to victory, completing 22-of-39 passes for 163 yards and three touchdowns. With starting quarterback Josh Greer out with a broken collarbone, Navarro sophomore quarterback Alex Allen was under duress all evening in his first start. The Trinity Valley defense racked up 11 sacks – including a game-high three by sophomore defensive lineman Jhaustin Thomas.
