ODAC Football Report: Week 3

Three ODAC schools remained undefeated through the third week of gridiron action.  Emory & Henry, Hampden-Sydney and Randolph-Macon all have handled their non-conference schedules without a blemish, as has Bridgewater, but the Eagles were idle this weekend (bye week).  R-MC quarterback Austin Faulkner fired five touchdown passes in the Jackets 42-14 win over Shenandoah.  E&H defensive back, Daniel Woods, picked off a pair of passes in the second half in the Wasps' 20-10 win over UVA-Wise.
