Not even the temporary absence of a home stadium can stop the Pioneers' momentum. The team is ranked #2 in the Heart of America Athletic Conference (HAAC). Wins over Baker (#3), Benedictine (#5), Peru State (#7), and Evangel (#4) have propelled MNU to their spot behind Missouri Valley.

The Pioneers qualified for the first round of NAIA playoffs facing the #7 University of the Cumberlands Patriots Nov. 16. The Pioneers are making their sixth consecutive playoff appearance while the Patriots are making their fourth appearance in the last five years.

An incredible six players were named HAAC players of the week this season, while Trent Remmich, Chris Eriksson, Aurelien Norest, and Rodrigo Rivas were named to the first team in the HAAC all-conference team, making them eligible for All-American awards after the national tournament.
