The Panthers have pulled away with their last few wins. In week four, Middlebury won in double-overtime. Yesterday’s win over Colby was only a one point game with a 27-26 final.

The Panthers are on the right track to become conference champions. Wesleyan trails Middlebury with a perfect 5-0 record as well. The two will meet next week at Alumni Stadium at 1 p.m.
