As College football enters into the month of October, this means cooler temps; but hotter races for the race for the conference championships and advancement into the post-season play.
Entering this weekend’s games a total of 25 games have seen the two teams combine for over 100 points. Twenty-two teams make-up schools reaching the plateau; as California (BSD), Eastern Washington (CSD) and Reinhardt (NAIA) have two such games.
Worth Noting: Teams are listed–by points–of the winners as a few teams have both won and lost games when both schools combined for triple digets.
Despite many teams putting lots of points on their respective scoreboards in 2014; there is slim chance to see the number of games reach or even surpass the total for all of 2013 of 74 games.
Teams in this week’s high scoring index have combined to score between the bare minimumn of 100 all the way up to the record-tying offensive explossion of 142 point put-up in the Rose-Hulman and Illinois College; tying a NCAA III single game mark.
The range of points scored by the winner range between 52 markers (Ohio Northern, Eastern Washington and Reinhardt ) to Texas A&M-Commerce’s 98 point out burst earlier this season.
