Illinois State won two very tight games this weekend in a wild finish to take the Great Midwest Conference.
The semifinal-final weekend produced plenty of drama throughout.
Played in snow, which slowly melted and converted the fields to mud, the games were close all the way through.
Loyola-Chicago’s defeat of Northern Iowa has the Great Midwest sitting up and taking notice.
Now at 2-1, Loyola is tied with Northern Iowa at 3-1 and in a solid position to make a go in the Great Midwest playoffs.
Now, Loyola’s 27-22 loss to Illinois State on September 7 looms large as an indication that Loyola could be very serious.
