Overview: Northern claimed victory in an exciting, high-scoring game with a final score of 40-34. Both teams put forth a great effort, consistently flipping momentum with scores from the offense, defense, and special teams. Win or lose, both teams put on an absolute show and put an exclamation point on the SMAC season. Here are four players that stood out to me in this contest.

Day'veon Savoy

Day'veon was able to use his speed to make an impact on both sides of the ball as both a receiver and defensive back. A majority of Day'veons damage came from his receiver position, where he caught two touchdowns on slants across the middle of the field. On the first, he exercised fantastic concentration by absorbing a huge hit while keeping a hold of the ball for the score. On the second, he really showed off his speed, catching the ball in stride and getting up-field before any defender had the chance to react. Northern's offense also did an excellent job of getting the ball in his hands to take advantage of speed using jet sweeps, also keeping the defense on their toes. Overall, Northern's offense needed Day'veons performance to get the win
