     Congrats to Case Western Reserve's football team on a statement win, moving to an undefeated 9-0.  Next stop, Pittsburgh, against their arch nemesis rival Carnegie Mellon, who is 7-2.  Game is known as the Academic Bowl.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academic_Bowl_(college_football)
And congrats to Coach Greg Debeljak on his 100th win of his head coaching career.
BTW...finally, some fantastic media coverage on the only NCAA team in Cleveland city limits:

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Case Western Reserve University won, in dominating fashion, the football game it had to win to make its next game crucial.
The Spartans, keyed by Jacob Burke's 160 rushing yards and three touchdowns, routed a strong Westminster team, 41-10, in a Presidents Athletic Conference game at DiSanto Field on Saturday.
Case Western (9-0, 7-0), the nation's 16th-ranked Division III team, closes its regular season with a visit to Carnegie Mellon (7-2, 5-2) next Saturday. A win would likely earn a national playoffs berth for the Spartans, while a loss would probably keep them out of the postseason.

Case Western football team routs Westminster, eyes 10-0 season next week at Carnegie Mellon

It’s taken a while for the Case Western Reserve football team to come full circle, but here it is.
With one game to play this season, the Spartans are on the cusp of a 10-0 regular season, and a likely spot in the NCAA Division III playoffs.

The victory was Debeljak’s 100th of coaching career, and his players delivered the milestone win in impressive fashion. Westminster entered the game 6-2 and this week was regional ranked by NCAA.com.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Here's what it's like to play football at Case Western Reserve University.

It's players pulling all-nighters ... because they have to study for tests.

These guys are after the big time: Admission to medical schools, engineering schools and schools that offer MBA programs.

It's the team facing the biggest game of the season Saturday, but 15 players were excused from Tuesday's practice. They were attending a session called "Special Instruction" to prepare them for exams in Chemistry and Physics.

It's where the guys majoring in corporate and international finance are viewed as taking the "easy courses" by the future engineers and doctors.

Not sure if anyone else here watched the CWRU/CMU game online on Saturday, but that was one of the most wild finishes to a football game I've seen in a while.
