Findlay Oilers (2-2, 1-1 G-MAC)
After a heartbreaking setback in the season opener against Ferris St., the Oilers rebounded to earn a win in their home opener over Northwood University, a game in which they scored 31 points, all of which came in the first half. Findlay then hit the road to take on Ohio Dominican in the NCAA DII Showcase Game of the Week on ESPN3. The Panthers made it six consecutive wins against the Oilers, defeating the Orange and Black 21-10. But, in last week's Homecoming game, Findlay put up the third-highest scoring game in program history, hanging 75 points on the board against Alderson Broaddus.
Kentucky Wesleyan (0-4, 0-1 G-MAC)
Selected seventh in the preseason poll, the 2019 KWC football season has not started as smoothly as many Panthers fans would hope. The hire of former University of Kentucky great Craig Yeast brought with it high expectations for a program that has struggled since it's inception. Granted, it is just Yeast's first year on the job, but the Panthers still maintain their ranking near the bottom of NCAA Division II (via masseyratings.com) and remain winless through four weeks, including a loss to Lake Erie College last Saturday that ended the Storm's 16-game losing streak.
