It was not the ideal second half for the MIT Engineers.

Miscues, penalties, and turnovers allowed Carnegie Mellon the opportunity to break-open a 7-7 tie in the second half with two touchdowns and one field goal for a 24-7 non-conference victory on Saturday afternoon in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 

Luke Bikulege and Michael Lohmeier each recorded third-quarter touchdowns, while Brandon Nguyen converted a 33-yard field goal in-between both scores.

MIT attempted to respond after Lohmeier pounced on a loose fumble in the end zone, but struggled to move the ball against a potent Tartans defense, which limited the Engineers to just 289 yards of total offense.

“Going into half (it was) 7-7, basically a 0-0 game, but then we came out in the third quarter and we just made too many mistakes,” said MIT coach Brian Bubna.

“Defensively, we were missing a lot of tackles (followed) by some special teams errors, which put us back in our own end and then a bad snap into the end zone.”

While MIT struggled in the second half, Bubna felt his team played well in the first half – the Engineers scored the game’s initial touchdown late in the first quarter when Chris Mauck connected with Keithen Shepard for a 72-yard score before Carnegie Mellon responded late in the second with a 78-yard strike from JD Dayhuff to Willie Richter.

MIT may have concluded the game with 14 more total yards than Carnegie Mellon, but the Engineers lost two fumbles and were flagged five times for 33 yards.

“(Carnegie Mellon) is a good team, we knew that coming in. We (also) knew they would be disciplined, and they are well-coached, too,” said Bubna.

“But when you make that many mistakes against a good team, that is what happens.”

Western New England 33, Springfield College 17: Alec Coleman recorded 351 yards of total offense, including 305 passing yards, while scoring two touchdowns as the Golden Bears captured the Pynchon SAW Game for the first time since 2016. WNE’s Kieran Lombard concluded the game by converting seven kicks, including four field goals.

Norwich University 22, Salve Regina 19: Matt Dunn completed 24-for-41 for 307 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning score with 1:46 remaining in the fourth. Dunn connected with Manni Romero on a five-yard touchdown pass, which capped 11 plays, 64-yard drive.

Maritime (N.Y.) 24, Maine Maritime 21: Joseph Gagliardi converted on four kicks, including a game-winning 43-yard field goal as time expired to send the Privateers past the Mariners in Throggs Neck, New York. Maine Maritime’s Nikolas Moquin concluded the game with three touchdown passes.

Western Connecticut 12, William Patterson 9 (OT): David James connected with Will Daniels for a game-winning 25-yard touchdown in overtime after Jordan D’Onofrio secured the extra session with his second field goal of the afternoon with 3:04 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Morrisville State 39, Bridgewater State 7: Bill Flatow tossed two touchdowns and ran for a score, too, as the Mustangs rolled over the Bears in Bridgewater. Stefano D’Emilia recorded Bridgewater State’s lone touchdown in the third quarter.

Rankings from our Week One Noontime Sports Top 20 Poll 

No. 16 Nichols College at No. 18 Dean College (Friday, Sept. 7th at 7 p.m.): This has the making of a high-scoring affair ending with a Terrell Watts touchdown. PREDICTION: Dean 42, Nichols 35 

Worcester State at No. 8 WPI (Friday, Sept. 7th at 7 p.m.): It’s great to have this rivalry back, but in the end, the Engineers will prevail, thanks to its rushing attack. PREDICTION: WPI 30, Worcester State 10 

Anna Maria College at Becker College (Friday, Sept. 7th at 7 p.m.): Coach Dan Mulrooney‘s squad seems pumped-up for their first game of the 2019 season, which should end in favor of the AMCATs. PREDICTION: Anna Maria 21, Becker 14 

No. 4 Framingham State at No. 9 Endicott College (Friday, Sept. 7th at 7 p.m.): Both teams enter the 2019 season with high expectations, but this contest will come down to the battle of the trenches.

Norwich University at No. 12 Salve Regina (Saturday, Sept. 8th at 12 p.m.): Two high-powered offenses are set to square-off in Rhode Island – we could see this game going either way, but in the end, the Seahawks will make one or two additional plays to squeak out an opening day win. PREDICTION: Salve Regina 28, Norwich 20

Morrisville State at No. 7 Bridgewater State (Saturday, Sept. 8th at 12 p.m.): The Bears enter the 2019 season with expectations to compete for a conference crown. They should find a way past the Mustangs in week one to gain some momentum heading into their week two clash with St. John FisherPREDICTION: Bridgewater State 29, Morrisville State 21 

Carnegie Mellon at No. 6 MIT (Saturday, September 8th at 12 p.m.): After a successful first season as the head coach of the Engineers, Brian Bubna will attempt to work his magic in year number two, beginning with a week one victory. PREDICTION: MIT 23, Carnegie Mellon 16 

No. 13 Western Connecticut at William Patterson (Saturday, September 8th at 1 p.m.): The Colonials may have graduated some key pieces from last season, but return enough talent to help them get off to a 1-0 start. PREDICTION: West Conn. 35, William Patterson 14 

No. 2 Springfield College at No. 3 Western New England (Saturday, Sept. 8th at 1 p.m.): Two of our top five teams square-off in a battle for Springfield – look for a late touchdown (or two) from quarterback Chad Shade to send the Pride past the Golden Bears. PREDICTION: Springfield 35, Western New England 27 

Westfield State at Union College (Saturday, Sept. 8th at 1 p.m.): The Owls could surprise some folks this season, but this is a tough opening day clash with a Dutchmen squad, which won four games last fall against New England opponents. PREDICTION: Union 28, Westfield State 14
