GLIAC Football Preview Notes - Week 11

BAY CITY, Mich. - Week 11 of the NCAA Division II football season finds three Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) football teams tied for first place in the race for the Conference title. Wayne State University, Saginaw Valley State University, and Hillsdale College all have 7-2 GLIAC records with one week remaining in the regular season.

Wayne State (8-2, 7-2) will play host to the University of Findlay (5-5, 5-4) in Detroit kicking off at noon. The Warriors won last year’s meeting 44-27 in Findlay, but trails in the all-time series 11-8. Last week Wayne State won at the University of Indianapolis, 28-19, and Findlay lost at home to Hillsdale, 49-19. A Wayne State win would clinch at least a share of the GLIAC title.

Saginaw Valley State (7-2, 7-2) travels Grand Valley State University (7-3, 6-3) with kickoff set for 1:00 p.m. at Lubbers Stadium. GVSU has won the last six regular season meetings against SVSU, including last year’s 28-7 win at Saginaw Valley State. An SVSU win means the Cardinals would secure at least a share of the conference crown. A Laker win would result in multiple teams sharing the North Division title.

Hillsdale (7-3, 7-2) is looking for its third straight win when the Chargers at play Tiffin University (0-9, 0-10) at 1:30 p.m. for both teams regular season finales. A Hillsdale win guarantees the Chargers will be at least GLIAC Co-Champions. The Chargers won last year’s matchup in Hillsdale, 31-24.
