Tony Adame looks at Saturday’s small-college football

Central Oklahoma (0-1) at No. 1 Pittsburg State (1-0), 6 p.m. – Pittsburg State junior wide receiver/return specialist John Brown showed why he is one of the most dynamic players in the nation in the Gorillas’ 41-20 win at Northeastern State last Saturday. Brown racked up 270 all-purpose yards, including nine catches for 140 yards and two touchdowns.

Central Oklahoma (0-1) at No. 1 Pittsburg State (1-0), 6 p.m. – Pittsburg State junior wide receiver/return specialist John Brown showed why he is one of the most dynamic players in the nation in the Gorillas’ 41-20 win at Northeastern State last Saturday. Brown racked up 270 all-purpose yards, including nine catches for 140 yards and two touchdowns.

No. 15 Washburn (1-0, 0-0) at Fort Hays State (0-1, 0-1), 7 p.m. – Chris Brown’s second season as Fort Hays State’s coach got off to a rocky start last week with a loss to Emporia State, but the Tigers get a big opportunity to get back on track against a nationally-ranked opponent.

Other Games

No. 3 Northwest Missouri (1-0, 0-0) at Central Missouri (0-1, 0-1), 1:30 p.m.

Emporia State (1-0, 1-0) at Nebraska-Kearney (0-1, 0-1), 2 p.m.

Southwest Baptist (0-1, 0-1) at Lindenwood (1-0, 1-0), 6 p.m.

Northeastern State (0-1, 0-1) at Missouri Southern (1-0, 1-0), 6 p.m.

William Jewell (0-1) at No. 14 Missouri Western (1-0), 6 p.m.

Lincoln (0-1, 0-1) at Truman (1-0, 1-0), 7 p.m.

KCAC

Saint Mary (0-1, 0-0) at Friends (0-1, 0-0), 7 p.m. – Evangel’s Andrew Brimhall picked apart the Friends secondary for 336 yards and three touchdowns in the Falcons’ 27-14 loss last Saturday at Springfield, Mo. That’s not a good sign with Saint Mary’s pass-happy offense and All-KCAC quarterback Mike Keese coming to town.

Other Games

Bethel (0-1, 0-0) at Southwestern (0-1, 0-0), 6 p.m.

Sterling (0-1, 0-0) at Tabor (0-1, 0-0), 7 p.m.

No. 11 Ottawa (0-1, 0-0) at Kansas Wesleyan (0-1, 0-0), 7 p.m.

McPherson (0-1, 0-0) at No. 24 Bethany (1-0, 0-0), 7 p.m.

Jayhawk Conference

No. 14 Hutchinson (1-1, 1-0) at No. 19 Garden City (2-0, 1-0), 7 p.m. – This is high stakes for both teams early in the season – if Garden City wins they’ve got a clear path to an undefeated showdown with Butler in El Dorado on Oct. 6. A loss puts the Blue Dragons out of the national-title hunt.

Garden City quarterback Nick Marshall is averaging 198 passing yards and 113 rushing yards. He and RB Jamal Tyler (246 rushing yards, four touchdowns) should test a Hutchinson defense that gave up 617 yards in a 54-34 loss to No. 12 Navarro.

Other Games

Fort Scott (1-1, 1-0) at No. 2 Butler (2-0, 1-0), 7 p.m.

Arkansas Baptist (0-2) at Independence (0-2), 1 p.m.

Coffeyville (0-2) at Air Force Prep (0-2), 2 p.m.

Highland (0-2, 0-1) at Dodge City (0-2, 0-1), 7 p.m.
