Mount Union’s defense shut down Ohio Northern and did some scoring of its own, and the Purple Raiders easily took down the Polar Bears on the road.

Mount Union (4-0, 3-0 OAC) held Ohio Northern (2-2, 1-2 OAC) to just 160 yards of offense. Tre Jones also returned an interception 36 yards for a touchdown.

Tiffin 34, Malone 30

Malone nearly pulled off a fourth-quarter comeback but ran out of time and fell to Tiffin on the road.

The Pioneers (0-5) trailed 34-16 with five minutes remaining. Running back Bryce Pratt (122 yards, two touchdowns) capped a 14-play, 87-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown run and then made the 2-point conversion with a pass to make it 34-24 with 1:45 to go.

As time wound down, quarterback Brandyn Eckhart, who came on in relief of Will Szpor, scored on a 17-yard run to bring Malone to within 34-30 of Tiffin (1-4) as the extra point was missed.

The Pioneers ran out of time, though.

Wabash 48, Wooster 14

Wooster’s defense was overpowered early in the game and the Fighting Scots fell at home to Wabash College.

Wabash (4-0, 4-0) scored 38 points in the first half and was able to cruise.

For Wooster (2-2, 2-1), quarterback Richard Barnes threw for 306 yards but was sacked seven times. Justin Rice (69 yards) and Keir Pace (65 yards) each had eight receptions.

No. 18 Wittenberg, 49,
Hiram 9

Hiram could not get its rushing attack rolling, and the Terriers fell to nationally ranked Wittenberg.

Wittenberg (3-1) held Hiram (2-3) to minus-22 yards rushing for the day and at one point led 42-0.

Hiram quarterback George Blake threw for 214 yards, a touchdown and had two interceptions. Wide receiver Nate Eaton finished the game with 76 receiving yards and a touchdown on five receptions.
