GAME PREVIEW: In Week 10 of the 2018 season, the football teams from Hillsdale and Tiffin squared off with first place in the G-MAC on the line...In 2019 it's déja vu all over again, only this time the Dragons host the Chargers with first place in the conference at stake...Tiffin currently sits alone in first with a 6-0 G-MAC record, and Hillsdale is in a three-way tie for second with one conference loss...A Hillsdale win would give it all tiebreaker advantages over Tiffin due to the head-to-head win...Findlay and Ohio Dominican are both tied with the Chargers for second place...Hillsdale plays ODU next weekend while Tiffin plays Findlay in a nifty bit of scheduling that sees the four top teams in the league all play one another in the season's final two weeks...Unlike last year, the winner of Saturday's game cannot clinch the G-MAC regular season title outright, but a Charger win would create quite a tangle at the top of the conference standings...Tiffin comes into this game ranked 25th in this week's AFCA Division II Top 25 Coach's poll, having won six in a row since a Week 2 loss to Saginaw Valley State...Both teams played Northwood this year, and both teams pulled out close victories, 37-30 for Hillsdale and 22-19 for Tiffin...Hillsdale hasn't won at Tiffin since November 12, 2011...In that game, a 42-0 Hillsdale win, the Chargers clinched the GLIAC regular season championship outright.
