On a day when Southern Oregon secured the Frontier Conference title and an NAIA playoff berth, Carroll College won its third straight game Saturday.
Carroll College knocked off Montana Western 24-15 at Nelson Stadium.
Southern went to Havre to beat MSU-Northern 38-17, while Eastern Oregon upset Rocky Mountain College 21-17 in Billings.
Next week, Rocky heads to Western, Northern plays at the College of Idaho, Carroll travels to Eastern Oregon and Southern Oregon plays at Montana Tech.
Those games will likely close the season for every Frontier team but Southern Oregon. Tech is the only other team with a shot at a playoff berth, though that is unlikely.
