Illinois State bonced back from last week's loss to beat a tough Loyola side this week in Great Midwest Conference action.
Meanwhile, Marquette won their second in a row, taking down Northern Michigan 29-17.
The Great Midwest Conference already had a shakeup after the first weekend of competition, and it's likely we'll see some more of that as the season progresses.
Marquette beating Wisconsin-Whitewater was, of course, the most notable result.
Longtime and high respected coach Tom Schmitt died suddenly of a heart attack January 13, leaving behind a grieving family and many, many players who held him in high esteem.
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.
