No. 20/15 Spartans Fall to Carnegie Mellon in Academic Bowl

In another iteration of the Academic Bowl that came down to the final snap of the game, the 20th/15th-ranked Case Western Reserve University Spartans fell just short to the Carnegie Mellon University Tartans, dropping a 24-21 decision at Gesling Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Saturday.

The loss put an end to the Spartans hopes for an undefeated regular season, as the team wrapped-up its 10-game slate with a 9-1 overall record. However, with an 8-1 mark in conference play, CWRU finished a game ahead of Carnegie Mellon for the 2019 Presidents' Athletic Conference Championship, as will now turn their attention towards the NCAA Division III playoffs, which will begin next weekend.
