AMHERST, Mass. -- For the first time since 2010, the Williams College football team (9-0) is NESCAC champion, holding off a furious comeback by the Amherst Mammoths (5-4) to win 24-19.   Though Williams also went undefeated in 2010, this marks the school's first undefeated season since the NESCAC's expansion to a nine-game schedule in 2017.   With under a minute to go, the Mammoths faced fourth-and-10 at their own 47-yard line.

The fear is that the Fed might be forced to raise interest rates if that were the case.   The Producer Price Index (PPI) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI) both came in a little warmer than forecasted on a year-over-year basis, but not as high
