TOP 25 ROUNDUP: CADE KLUBNIK LEADS CLEMSON’S UPSET OF NO. 20 NORTH CAROLINA
Cade Klubnik passed for a touchdown and ran for another as host Clemson took advantage of No. 20 North Carolina’s mistakes in a 31-20 victory Saturday, giving the resurgent Tigers their third straight win.
Will Shipley rushed for 126 yards and a touchdown and Phil Mafah gained 84 yards and scored on a fourth-down play as the Tigers (7-4, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) completed their league schedule. Klubnik threw for 219 yards on 21-for-32 passing and rushed for 44 yards in a rematch of last year’s ACC title game.
North Carolina’s quest for a spot in the ACC Championship game was dashed earlier in the day when Louisville won at Miami. The Tar Heels (8-3, 4-3) have lost three of their last five games.
North Carolina’s Omarion Hampton ran for 178 yards on 19 carries, but he lost two fumbles after not fumbling in the team’s first 10 games. Quarterback Drake Maye was 16-for-36 for 209 yards, with a touchdown and an interception.
No. 1 Georgia 38, No. 18 Tennessee 10
Carson Beck completed 24 of 30 passes for 298 yards and three touchdowns, and the Bulldogs cruised to a road win over the Volunteers in an SEC matchup in Knoxville, Tenn.
Georgia (11-0, 8-0 SEC) remained perfect and increased its winning streak to 28 straight games since the end of the 2021 campaign. The Bulldogs moved into a tie for the longest winning streak in SEC history. Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint had seven catches for 91 yards and two touchdowns to lead Georgia. Dillon Bell caught one touchdown and passed for another on a trick play, and Brock Bowers finished with seven catches for 60 yards and a score.
Joe Milton III completed 17 of 30 passes for 147 yards for Tennessee (7-4, 3-4). Jaylen Wright finished with 90 rushing yards and a touchdown for the Volunteers, whose 14-game home winning streak ended.
No. 2 Ohio State 37, Minnesota 3
TreVeyon Henderson ran for 146 yards and two touchdowns in less than three quarters when the Buckeyes defeated the Golden Gophers in Columbus, Ohio.
Next for the Buckeyes (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten) is a trip to Ann Arbor on Nov. 25 to play No. 3 Michigan with a spot in the conference title game at stake as well as implications for the CFP. Henderson broke open a close game with a career-long 75-yard TD on the first play of the third quarter to make it 20-0. Marvin Harrison Jr. had a 4-yard TD catch to make it 27-0. Harrison, a Heisman Trophy contender, had three receptions for 30 yards and one score before being rested midway through the third quarter. Kyle McCord was 20 of 30 for 212 yards and two TDs for the Buckeyes.
Minnesota’s Athan Kaliakmanis completed 11 of 19 for 89 yards, an interception and a lost fumble.
No. 3 Michigan 31, Maryland 24
Blake Corum rushed for 94 yards and two touchdowns as the Wolverines withstood the Terrapins’ upset bid and recorded their 1,000th program victory in College Park, Md.
Derrick Moore had a fumble return for a touchdown and Mike Sainristil and Darrius Clemons picked off Taulia Tagovailoa for Michigan (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten), which led by 20 points midway through the first half. J.J. McCarthy passed for 141 yards and was intercepted once.
Billy Edwards Jr. scored all three of Maryland’s touchdowns on 1-yard runs. Tagovailoa passed for 247 yards for the Terrapins (6-5, 3-5).
No. 4 Florida State 58, North Alabama 13
The Seminoles overcame a 13-point deficit and the early loss of Heisman Trophy candidate Jordan Travis to remain unbeaten with a win over FCS foe North Alabama in Tallahassee, Fla.
Backup quarterback Tate Rodemaker completed 13 of 23 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns for the Seminoles (11-0). Rodemaker could be their quarterback going forward after Travis left Doak Campbell Stadium via ambulance late in the first quarter after an ugly ankle injury at the end of a 16-yard scramble.
At that point, Florida State faced its largest deficit of the year. The Lions (3-8) got their attention with 86- and 80-yard touchdown drives to start the game. Noah Walters threw 13- and 6-yard strikes to Takairee Kenebrew and J.J. Evans, respectively. Walters finished the game 13 of 26 for 65 yards with an interception. Kenebrew’s scoring grab was the 26th of his career, a school record.
No. 5 Washington 22, No. 11 Oregon State 20
Michael Penix Jr. threw two touchdown passes and Dillon Johnson rushed for 89 yards as the Huskies survived a scare and edged the Beavers in Pac-12 play at Corvallis, Ore.

Damien Martinez rushed for 123 yards and two touchdowns for Oregon State (8-3, 5-3). DJ Uiagalelei completed 15 of 31 passes for 166 yards and two interceptions for the Beavers, who gained 319 yards.
No. 6 Oregon 49, Arizona State 13
Bo Nix passed for 404 yards and tied a school record with six touchdown passes in a little over two quarters and the Ducks rolled over the Sun Devils in a Pac-12 matchup in Tempe, Ariz.
Nix completed 24 of 29 passes and matched the school record of six TDs. Ty Thompson then took over for Nix as the Ducks (10-1, 7-1 Pac-12) continued their march to the conference championship game Dec. 1 in Las Vegas. Thompson also threw a touchdown pass, giving the Ducks a team-record-tying seven for the game. Troy Franklin (eight catches, 128 yards) and Patrick Herbert (three, 78) had two touchdown receptions each, while Tez Johnson (six, 80), Gary Bryant Jr. (three, 82) and Casey Kelly (one, 19) each had one touchdown reception.
Trenton Bourguet was 20-of-37 passing for 142 yards for the Sun Devils, and Cam Skattebo and Jalin Conyers combined to go 5 of 10 for 63 yards.
No. 7 Texas 26, Iowa State 16
Quinn Ewers passed for 281 yards and two touchdowns, and CJ Baxter ran for 117 yards as the Longhorns overcame a slew of mistakes to beat the Cyclones in a key Big 12 Conference game in Ames, Iowa.

No. 8 Alabama 66, Chattanooga 10
Jalen Milroe passed for 197 yards and three touchdowns in one half as the Crimson Tide rolled to a victory over the Mocs at Tuscaloosa, Ala.
Milroe completed 13 of 16 passes before exiting and helping the Crimson Tide (10-1) win their ninth consecutive game. Justice Haynes rushed for two scores and Jase McClellan, Roydell Williams and Richard Young each added one for Alabama.
Luke Schomburg completed 10 of 21 passes for 107 yards and one interception for the Mocs (7-4), who are ranked 16th in the FCS Coaches Poll. Chattanooga starting quarterback Chase Artopoeus missed the game with a shoulder injury.
No. 9 Missouri 33, Florida 31
Harrison Mevis kicked a 30-yard field goal with seven seconds left to lift the Tigers past the Gators.
Mevis also kicked field goals of 22, 38 and 24 yards as the Tigers (9-2, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) furthered their bid for a New Year’s Six bowl bid. Missouri moved 62 yards to set up Mevis’ winning kick, with Brady Cook completing a 27-yard pass to Luther Burden III on fourth-and-17 to extend the drive. Cook passed for 331 yards and one touchdown and ran for another. Cody Schrader rushed for 148 yards and a touchdown, and Burden caught nine passes for 158 yards.
Backup Florida quarterback Max Brown rallied the Gators from a 30-21 fourth-quarter deficit to a 31-30 lead. Trey Smack kicked a go-ahead 35-yard field goal with 1:36 left. Trevor Etienne gained 119 total yards and scored two touchdowns for Florida (5-6, 3-5). Graham Mertz completed 14 of 21 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns before suffering an apparent collarbone injury in the third quarter.
No. 10 Louisville 38, Miami 31
Jack Plummer’s 58-yard touchdown pass to Keon Coleman Jr. with 4:17 left in the game proved to be the winning score for the visiting Cardinals, who held off the Hurricanes in South Florida.
Louisville (10-1, 7-1 ACC) will face No. 4 Florida State for the conference title in Charlotte, N.C., on Dec. 2.
The victory marks the first double-digit-win season for the Cardinals since 2013, their lone campaign in the American Athletic Conference. Meanwhile, Miami (6-5, 2-5) will finish with a losing record in conference play for the second straight season.
No. 12 Penn State 27, Rutgers 6
Kaytron Allen rushed for two touchdowns and Demeioun Robinson made a big defensive play to lead the Nittany Lions over the Scarlet Knights at University Park, Pa.
Alex Felkins kicked two field goals and Kevin Winston had an interception for Penn State (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten), which defeated Rutgers for the 17th consecutive time. The Nittany Lions are 32-2 all-time against the Scarlet Knights.

No. 13 Ole Miss 35, UL Monroe 3
Jaxson Dart passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns to lift the Rebels over the Warhawks in a nonconference game in Oxford, Miss.

Jiva Wright passed for just 56 yards and the Warhawks (2-9) totaled just 258 yards.
No. 14 Oklahoma 31, BYU 24
After quarterback Dillon Gabriel was injured, freshman Jackson Arnold proved to be a steady hand, guiding the Sooners over the host Cougars at Provo, Utah.
Taking over after Gabriel went down with a head injury late in the first half, Arnold was 5 of 9 for 33 yards passing and rushed for 24 yards on eight carries as Oklahoma (9-2, 6-2 Big 12) won its second consecutive game after back-to-back defeats. Gavin Sawchuk scored the go-ahead score for the Sooners midway through the fourth quarter.
Jake Retzlaff was 15-of-26 passing for BYU with 173 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Aidan Robbins had 182 yards rushing for BU (5-6, 2-6), which lost its fourth consecutive game and has dropped five of their last six in conference play.
No. 15 LSU 56, Georgia State 14
Jayden Daniels threw six touchdown passes and ran for two more scores as the Tigers routed the Panthers in their nonconference mismatch in Baton Rouge, La.
Daniels added to his Heisman Trophy-worthy resume by passing for 413 yards and rushing for 96 for the Tigers (8-3). He tied Joe Burrow’s school record with eight touchdowns in one game.
Darren Grainger passed for 179 yards and a touchdown and Marcus Carroll rushed or 87 yards and a score on 15 carries to lead the Panthers (6-5), who lost their fourth consecutive game.
No. 16 Iowa 15, Illinois 13
Kaleb Johnson’s 30-yard touchdown run with 4:43 left lifted the Hawkeyes over the Illini that clinched the Big Ten West Division title at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, Iowa.
Quarterback Deacon Hill completed 19 of 29 passes for 167 yards and a touchdown while Iowa’s defense forced a safety and broke up 13 passes — four by cornerback Jermari Harris — to take Iowa (9-2, 6-2) to its second Big Ten championship-game appearance in three years.
Illinois quarterback John Paddock, the Big Ten’s reigning Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for 507 yards against Indiana, hit 22 of 47 passes for 215 yards. Reggie Love III rushed 18 times for 64 yards and the lone touchdown for Illinois (5-6, 3-5), which must win Saturday against Northwestern at home to claim a bowl berth.
No. 17 Arizona 42, No. 22 Utah 18
The Wildcats raced to a 28-point lead, including scoring on a blocked punt return, to win their fifth consecutive game by beating the Utes in Tucson, Ariz.
Arizona (8-3, 6-2 Pac-12) kept alive hopes of reaching the conference championship game by defeating its fourth ranked team during its winning streak, which is the school’s longest since starting the 2014 season with five consecutive wins.
Noah Fifita passed for 253 yards and two touchdowns for the Wildcats, who led Utah (7-4, 4-4) by four touchdowns one play into the second quarter. But the Utes, playing without three key defenders, battled to within 28-10 before Arizona’s Treydan Stukes intercepted a pass from Bryson Barnes with 11:22 left.
No. 19 Notre Dame 45, Wake Forest 7
Sam Hartman threw for 277 yards and four touchdowns and the Fighting Irish pulled away to trounce the visiting Demon Deacons in South Bend, Ind.

Freshman Cole Ballard, who was making his first career start for Kansas (7-4, 4-4), completed 11 of 16 passes for 162 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Devin Neal, a native of Lawrence, Kan., ran for 138 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries.
No. 23 Oklahoma State 43, Houston 30
The Cowboys scored 27 unanswered points spanning the halves to rally past the host Cougars.
Oklahoma State (8-3, 6-2 Big 12) posted 501 yards of total offense. Alan Bowman finished with 348 yards passing and two touchdowns against an interception, a pick-six. Ollie Gordon II rushed for 164 yards and had three TD runs, and Brennan Presley had 15 catches for 189 yards for the Cowboys.

The Green Wave held serve in their battle for the American Athletic Conference crown, defeating the host Owls in Boca Raton, Fla.
Michael Pratt threw for 252 yards and three touchdowns for Tulane (10-1, 7-0 AAC), which kept pace with UTSA (7-0) atop the conference. The leaders will meet in New Orleans on Friday.
Daniel Richardson completed 24 of 31 passes for 202 yards with one touchdown and one interception for Florida Atlantic (4-7, 3-4), which lost any hope of bowl-game eligibility. LaJohntay Wester, who entered leading the AAC in catches (93) and receiving yards (1,042), added 11 and 86, respectively.
NBA ROUNDUP: THUNDER SINK WARRIORS AGAIN, THIS TIME IN OT
Chet Holmgren hit a game-tying 3-pointer in regulation and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 10 of his 40 points in overtime as the Oklahoma City Thunder swept two games from the Golden State Warriors with a 130-123 victory on Saturday night in San Francisco.
Holmgren finished with a season-best 36 points and Jalen Williams had 22 for the Thunder, who used 19 3-pointers and 59.4 percent shooting from behind the 3-point arc to outgun the Warriors 128-109 on Thursday.
Chris Paul countered Gilgeous-Alexander’s first hoop of overtime with a 3-pointer to give the Warriors one final lead at 120-119 before the Thunder star hit three mid-range shots and a layup.
Andrew Wiggins went 5 of 8 on 3-pointers as he scored a season-high 31 points for Golden State, which got Stephen Curry back from a two-game absence due to a sore knee. Curry also hit five 3-pointers and finished with 25 points.
The Thunder were able to send the game into overtime when Holmgren caught an inbounds pass in the left corner with 1.6 seconds remaining and buried a 3-pointer for a 117-all tie.
Bulls 102, Heat 97
DeMar DeRozan hit the go-ahead jumper with 21.9 seconds left and scored 12 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter as host Chicago rallied from a 21-point deficit to earn a victory over Miami.
The Bulls did not get the lead until Alex Caruso hit an open 3-pointer from the left side to make it 97-94 with 51.8 seconds left. After Jimmy Butler sank a game-tying 3-pointer with 42.7 seconds left, DeRozan made a turnaround 18-footer from the left elbow over rookie Jaime Jaquez Jr. to make it 99-97.
Nikola Vucevic added 15 points for the Bulls, who outscored Miami 101-75 over the final 41-plus minutes. Butler led the Heat with 25 points on 8-of-16 shooting. The Heat sped out to a 22-1 lead as they made nine of their first 11 shots.

Jaren Jackson Jr. scored 27 points and visiting Memphis turned the game around with an 18-0 run in the fourth quarter, roaring from behind to beat hapless San Antonio.
The Grizzlies trailed 99-93 with 10:01 to play but swept to the lead with their 18-0 outburst over the ensuing 5 1/2 minutes, with Ziaire Williams capping the surge with a 3-pointer. San Antonio missed all eight of its shots in that pivotal stretch.

MEN’S COLLEGE BASKETBALL
SCHEIERMAN AND ALEXANDER LEAD NO. 8 CREIGHTON IN 82-50 WIN OVER TEXAS SOUTHERN
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Baylor Scheierman scored 23 points, Trey Alexander had 15 of his 20 in the first half, and eighth-ranked Creighton blew out Texas Southern 82-50 Saturday night.
It took a while for the Bluejays to warm up against their opponent from the Southwestern Athletic Conference. When they did, it was game over.
Ryan Kalkbrenner had 16 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks for Creighton, and Alexander had eight assists and seven rebounds.
Creighton (4-0) had runs of 11-0, 14-5 and 11-2 while building a 47-27 halftime lead. The bulge grew to 39 points in the second half.
Texas Southern (0-4), playing the fourth of nine straight road or neutral-site games to open the season, got 14 points from Zytarious Mortle. The Tigers were without SWAC preseason player or the year and leading scorer PJ Henry for an undisclosed reason.
The Bluejays shot 46% overall and 35% on 3-pointers, making 14 of a program record-tying 40 attempts from distance.
“We got a lot of good looks at the basket that we missed,” Creighton coach Greg McDermott said. “We’ll take those shots. I liked we were finally able to execute and create some separation once they got it to 63-44. We stopped them on nine or 10 possessions in a row. Never going to be perfect. Tonight we weren’t, but it wasn’t from a lack of effort.”
Scheierman made 3 of 10 3s and was effective around the basket.
“I don’t think I shot it very well from 3,” he said, “so to get to the rim and foul line and see it go through is good for the confidence. Teammates got me the ball and gave me the confidence to let it fly.”
After Shaqir O’Neal’s 3 pulled the Tigers within 10 midway through the first half, Alexander’s dunk, Francisco Farabello’s layup and Isaac Traudt’s putback built back the cushion. Then Alexander’s four-point play and back-to-back 3s all but finished off the Tigers.
Mortle scored nine points in a 13-7 spurt that cut Creighton’s lead to 17 points in the second half. Kalkbrenner then dunked Steven Ashworth’s lob to start a 20-0 spurt, and the Tigers went almost seven minutes without scoring.
“We went through a stretch in the second half we were sloppy and had some careless turnovers,” Scheierman said. “To regain focus and regroup really helped and we finished the game really strong.”
Texas Southern: The Tigers, picked to win the Southwestern Athletic Conference, played their second game in seven-game stretch in which six of the opponents were in the NCAA Tournament last season.
Creighton: The Bluejays improved to 29-0 all-time against opponents from the SWAC. They beat Florida A&M 105-54 on Nov. 7.
Creighton: plays Loyola-Chicago on Wednesday in the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City, Missouri.
Texas Southern: visits Oral Roberts on Tuesday.
BRYANT STUNS NO. 10 FLORIDA ATLANTIC, WINNING 61-52 FOR 1ST VICTORY OVER RANKED OPPONENT
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) Consider the last week in the life of Bryant coach Phil Martelli Jr.
His team lost to Rutgers on Sunday, his former boss resigned Monday, he got promoted to head coach Wednesday, his team lost to a previously winless Boston University team Thursday and he boarded a flight to Boca Raton on Friday wondering if he was the problem.
Saturday was better. Much better – after he and the Bulldogs pulled off a stunner.
Sherif Gross-Bullock scored 19 points, Earl Timberlake added 13 and Bryant stunned No. 10 Florida Atlantic 61-52 on Saturday night to end the Owls’ 19-game home winning streak.
“This is a great moment and certainly it ranks up there,” Martelli Jr. said. “But we’re building towards highlights in February, March and hopefully beyond.”
Daniel Rivera scored 12 and Rafael Pinzon added 10 for the Bulldogs (2-3), who were 0-10 against ranked opponents since becoming full members of Division I – losing those games by an average of 28.8 points, the most recent of those contests by 67 points against Houston in 2021.
Didn’t matter. They held the Owls to 26% shooting, 20% in the second half.
“Hats off to Bryant,” FAU coach Dusty May said. “They played determined, they played well, they made plays when they needed to make them. It’s a good basketball team that’s faced a lot of adversity and they came together as a group today.”
Johnell Davis scored 17 and Giancarlo Rosado finished with 11 for the Owls (2-1). The Final Four program from last season entered the game as 22.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, against a Bryant team whose only win this season came against NAIA member Fisher.
The Bulldogs had been 0-3, all blowouts, against Top 10 competition since fully joining Division I. They lost to then-No. 1 Indiana by 43 in 2012, lost to then-No. 3 Ohio State by 38 in 2013 and lost to then-No. 5 Duke by 38 in 2015.
And briefly, this looked like it would be the same. FAU ran out to a 10-2 lead, starting 4 for 6 from the field. They went 4 for their next 25. And that cold shooting never stopped – not on 3-pointers, not on layups, not even on free throws.
“I can’t imagine us having another shooting performance like that ever again,” May said.
Martelli Jr.’s former boss, now-former Bryant coach Jared Grasso, resigned Monday. That led to the interim tag being taken off Martelli Jr., who had been the associate head coach and running the team in Grasso’s absence. Martelli Jr. didn’t sleep after the loss to Boston University; part of that was the before-dawn departure to the airport, part of that was just frustration.
And now, he’s got a Top 10 win.
“We still feel like we can do more,” Gross-Bullock said. “This is just motivation for the next one.”
The Bulldogs went on runs of 11-0 and 8-0 in the first half and went into the break down only 29-26 despite shooting 32%, which was 1% better than the Owls managed in the first 20 minutes.
Bryant didn’t shoot much better in the second half. But the Bulldogs made FAU shoot even worse.
Bryant: The Bulldogs had been close to pulling off upsets over ranked teams twice before, losing to No. 15 Providence 74-67 in 2015 and No. 24 Iowa 72-67 in 2018.
Florida Atlantic: The Owls’ 19-game winning streak at home was tied for the second-longest in the country entering Saturday. It took FAU until the final minute to break the 50-point mark; the last time the Owls scored under 50 was when they managed 46 in a loss at VCU on Dec. 15, 2021.
FAU will fall. How far is anyone’s guess. Poll shakeups are common in November, but it’s rare for a team to go from Top 10 one week in November to unranked the next. It happened to Villanova in November 2018 – the Wildcats were No. 8, then lost to No. 17 Michigan and unranked Furman to fall completely out of the AP Top 25.
Bryant: Hosts Howard on Monday.
Florida Atlantic: Faces Butler at Kissimmee, Florida on Thursday.

HOOSIERS DROP HEARBREAKER TO SPARTANS
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Victory was there for the Indiana Hoosiers taking.
They needed a crunch-time defensive stop against Michigan State on a sun-splashed afternoon at Memorial Stadium.
Then, they needed a crunch-time score.
Both were one decisive play away.
Then they weren’t.
Chris Freeman’s missed 48-yard field goal attempt that would have sent the game into overtime gave the Spartans (4-7) a 24-21 victory and the Old Brass Spittoon.
A final home game for the Hoosier seniors didn’t bring a final victory.
“There are a lot of high emotions,” safety Louis Moore said. “We have a lot of seniors on the team. This was their last home game. We felt the game was ours. Going out like that, the way it went, was sad.”
IU (3-8) has one final trophy to potentially claim — the Old Oaken Bucket next Saturday at Purdue.
“We’re pretty devastated,” quarterback Brendan Sorsby said. “We have to bounce back and win the Bucket.”
Added Moore: “We’ve got one more game. We have to finish strong.”
The loss followed the previous week’s overtime defeat at Illinois. The Hoosiers’ last three losses have been decided in the final few minutes or overtime.
“It’s frustrating knowing we’re taking it down to the end of these games and are not completing it and putting it all together at the end,” linebacker Aaron Casey said. “It’s something we have to keep working on. Finish strong.”
The Hoosiers were oh, so close.
Sorsby’s 8-yard touchdown pass to tight end Trey Walker pushed IU ahead 21-17 with four minutes left.
A defense that had held the Spartans to three points and 57 total yards in four previous second-half possessions, including an interception by cornerback Jamari Sharpe, gave up 75 yards and, ultimately, the winning touchdown.
“When the game is on the line, and we’re up,” Moore said, “we have to get off the field. Give the ball back to the offense and let them run out the clock.”
Added Casey: “We didn’t execute well enough at the end of the game. We weren’t at our best when it counted the most. We have to execute in those critical situations.”
Then, when a Michigan State touchdown pass made it a 24-21 score with 89 seconds remaining, Sorsby directed a drive that got the Hoosiers (3-8) to the brink of at least overtime, if not victory.
But a final score never came.
“It’s very frustrating,” head coach Tom Allen said. “We had a chance to win it. We didn’t do it. We had a lot of young guys playing hard.
“We didn’t finish.”
IU displayed run-and-pass balance as it hadn’t all season. The Hoosiers ran for a season-high 216 yards. Trent Howland led with 77 yards. Josh Henderson had 74. Sorsby ran for 65.
“We’re all physical runners,” Sorsby said. “We run through tackles. When the O-line is creating big holes, it makes it easy on you.
“Trent and Josh are running through tackles and getting yards after contact. It was a great job up front, a great job by them.”
Sorsby also was 19-for-34 for 192 yards and two touchdowns.
IU had 402 total yards with four drives of at least 66 yards.
“Our offensive line played great the whole game,” Sorsby said. “We executed when we needed to. We have to put some other drives together, too. We can’t have just have (four) good drives. We have to string together more.”
The Hoosiers got interceptions from Sharpe and safety Josh Sanguinetti. They held the Spartans to just 2.1 yards per carry. Moore led with 13 tackles.
“I felt our defense was better than their offense,” Moore said. “We had a lot of drives where we stopped them.
“It’s very frustrating.”
Michigan State opened the game with an 80-yard scoring drive for a 7-0 lead.
Second-quarter Sorsby runs of 25 and 11 yards mixed with passes of 13 and nine yards to receiver E.J. Williams Jr. got IU in the red zone. Three-straight Howland power runs totaling 18 yards got the Hoosiers into the end zone for a 7-7 tie.
The Spartans got a 29-yard touchdown pass for a 14-7 lead. Freeman’s 53-yard field goal attempt just before halftime was blocked.
IU came out running to start the third quarter, setting up a 38-yard pass to receiver Donaven McCulley and then a three-yard touchdown pass to tight end James Bomba for a 14-14 tie.
A 43-yard field goal gave Michigan State a 17-14 lead with 9:26 left in the game.
The Hoosiers responded with physical running behind physical offensive line play. An 11-play, 75-yard drive was capped by Sorsby’s touchdown pass to tight end Trey Walker for a 21-17 lead.
The Hoosiers were four minutes from victory.
A 36-yard Spartan TD pass gave them a 24-21 lead with 1:29 left. IU got within field goal range, but Freeman missed from 48 yards.
Now, it all comes down to Purdue. The Hoosiers will be ready, Allen said.
“We’re playing Purdue, period! I got this team’s back. Period. They know it. They will fight to the finish. I promise you that.
“We’re playing for the Old Oaken Bucket. Other than a bowl game, it’s the biggest opportunity this team has to play for.
“It’s a huge game, a massive game. A lot of guys are playing their final games.
“We have a strong locker room.”
BOILERS LATE COMEBACK ATTEMPT FALLS SHORT
EVANSTON, Ill. – The Purdue football team continued its run game dominance with 303 yards on the ground, but it was not enough as the Northwestern Wildcats withstood a late comeback attempt from the Boilermakers, winning 23-15 on Saturday afternoon at Ryan Field.
On a day without starting quarterback Hudson Card, the Purdue defense stepped up early and totaled five sacks in the first half, the team’s most in a half since the Eastern Michigan game on Sept. 8, 2018. Freshman standout Dillon Thieneman led the way with 10 tackles, six solos, and an interception. The Boilermakers held Northwestern to 2.9 yards per carry on the ground, allowing 99 yards on 34 carries.
On the other side of the ball, Tyrone Tracy Jr. electrified the box score with 266 all-purpose yards, the most by a Purdue player since Rondale Moore (Sept. 7, 2019 vs. Vanderbilt). The Boilermakers finished with 303 total rushing yards, their second highest total of the season. The team has eclipsed 300 rushing yards in back-to-back games, the first time Purdue has had multiple 300-yard rushing games in a season since 2002.
Bennett Meredith made his first career start at quarterback and finished 5-of-7 passing for 36 yards, but true freshman Ryan Browne ended up with the bulk of the work in his first collegiate action. He finished the day 12-of-16 through the air for 104 yards, also rushing 21 times for 85 yards.
Devin Mockobee added 98 all-purpose yards and a touchdown, rushing for 54 and recording three receptions for a team-high 44 yards.
After being held scoreless in the first half, the Purdue offense found its footing midway through the third quarter on a 20-yard rushing score from Tracy to decrease the deficit to 9-7. Tracy’s score marked the longest rushing touchdown of the season for the Boilermakers.
Two scores from Northwestern put Purdue in a 23-7 hole midway through the fourth quarter, but the tides began to turn when Thieneman recorded his fourth interception of the season on a deep pass from Northwestern quarterback Ben Bryant.
Purdue took advantage of the momentum-shifting pick and marched down the field on seven plays and 77 yards, closing the gap with a two-yard rushing touchdown from Mockobee on fourth-and-goal. The score marked Mockobee’s 15th career rushing touchdown, moving him into a tie for 14th all-time at Purdue. Deion Burks used his speed to get to the outside and convert a two-point try to make it a one-score game with a little over three minutes to play.
The defense did its part in forcing a quick three-and-out, giving the Boilermakers a chance to tie the game with just under two minutes on the clock. Browne led the offense down to Northwestern territory before a costly interception sealed Purdue’s fate.
Tracy led the way with 16 carries for a career-high 160 yards and a touchdown, averaging 10 yards per attempt.
Khordae Sydnor (2.0) and Mo Omonode (1.5) finished with season highs in sacks, while Yanni Karlaftis and Kydran Jenkins also found themselves in the sack column. Sydnor’s 2.5 tackles-for-loss were the most in his career.
The Purdue defense allowed just five third down conversions on 14 tries from the Wildcats, but senior running back Cam Porter made the difference with his two rushing touchdowns on 17 carries and 95 yards.
Bryant finished 13-of-24 passing for 230 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
• The Boilermakers gained 303 yards on the ground, averaging 5.6 yards per carry.
• It was the second straight game the Boilers have gone over 300 rushing yards, producing two 300-yard rushing games for the first time since 2002. It is just the 11th time Purdue has run for over 300 yards since 1996.
• Tyrone Tracy Jr. racked up a career-high 160 yards on 16 carries for his third 100-yard rushing game of the season. He ran for a career-long 62 yard scamper late in the fourth quarter to set the Boilers up inside the five.
• Devin Mockobee led the team with 44 receiving yards on three receptions and also had 54 yards and a touchdown in the rushing game.
• True freshman quarterback Ryan Browne had 85 yards on 21 carries and completed 75% (12-of-16) of his passes for 104 yards in his first ever collegiate action.
• The Boilermakers amassed five sacks in the first half, their most in a half since totaling five in the second half vs. Eastern Michigan on Sept. 8, 2018.
• The game was the third time Purdue has totaled five-or-more sacks in a game this season, the most games with five-plus sacks since 2007.
The Boilermakers will finish the season at Ross-Ade Stadium in a battle with Indiana for the Old Oaken Bucket on Saturday, Nov. 25, a noon kickoff on Big Ten Network.
DRAKE WINS PFL TITLE WITH 13-9 VICTORY AT BUTLER
INDIANAPOLIS – Drake scored a go-ahead touchdown with less than three minutes to play in the fourth quarter and stopped Butler’s last drive of the contest to claim their first outright PFL Title since 2004. Each team went 2-for-2 in the red zone but Drake had two, two-yard TD’s and the Bulldogs had to settle for two field goals.
The Bulldogs scored first on Saturday off a 38-yard field goal from Luka Zurak, but Drake would own a 7-3 lead at the break. Luke Bailey threw a two-yard TD pass to Hunter Johnson with 2:48 left in the second quarter. Defense was the name of the game after 30 minutes as each team recorded just over 100 yards of offense.
The Bulldogs made a statement in the second half and used a 13-play 68-yard drive to get points on the board on their opening possession. Butler got down to the Drake six-yard line but were held to a 23-yard Zurak field goal to get within a point of Drake.
A quick three and out followed for the Drake offense and Butler would march 51 yards on 12 plays to end the third quarter with the lead as Zurak nailed a 48-yard field goal.
Each team would have two drives in the fourth and Drake maximized on one of theirs to score a TD after 11 plays. The visitors covered 78 yards and crossed the goal line with a Dorian Boyland two-yard rush to make the game 13-9.
Butler’s offense got to midfield after the score to make the final minutes interesting, but Finn Claypool would break up the comeback effort with two sacks to move BU behind the sticks. Claypool ended the game with nine total tackles, including three for loss. Linden Howe also played well for the Drake defense, leading the crew with 10 tackles and a sack.
Butler ran 20 more plays than Drake, had four more first downs, outgained Drake by 89 yards, and dominated time of possession. Jyran Mitchell and Joey Audia led the rushing attack on Saturday with 55 and 50 yards respectively.
Bret Bushka played well in his final start at the Sellick Bowl. He completed 21 of his 34 pass attempts for 140 yards. Bushka hit Luke Wooten six times on nine targets. Wooten led all players with 65 receiving yards and now has over 1,000 yards in his BU career. Mitchell added six receptions for 19 yards out of the backfield.
Outside of the touchdown scores from Johnson and Boyland, the Drake unsung hero award might go to punter Shane Dunning. All six punts were downed inside the 20-yard line, his longest traveled 61 yards and his average over the six rested at 47.5 yards.
Defensively, Butler played well limiting Drake to 176 yards of total offense. Austin Korba had a sack and a tackle for loss in the setback while Jeremiah Johnson led all ‘Dawgs with six stops.
Butler’s season comes to a close with a 7-4 overall record that includes a 5-3 mark in the PFL. All three of their PFL losses came at a combined 13 points.
IUPUI MEN’S BASKETBALL
JAGUARS TRIPPED UP BY WINTHROP AT ROCK HILL CLASSIC, 74-61
ROCK HILL, S.C. – The IUPUI basketball team struggled to find the mark, shooting just 40 percent from the floor, in a 74-61 loss to Winthrop inside the Rock Hill Sports & Event Center on night two of the Rock Hill Classic. IUPUI hit just 3-of-17 (17.6 percent) from three-point range and were outscored 23-12 at the free throw line in the loss.

Kelton Talford paced four Winthrop (3-2) players in double-digits with 17 points and K.J. Doucet added 16 for the Eagles. Winthrop improved to 2-0 in the Rock Hill Classic, having rolled past Holy Cross on Friday night.
IUPUI (2-3) made life easy for Winthrop in the early going, committing six fouls in the opening five-plus minutes, allowing the Eagles to get to the foul line frequently. Winthrop didn’t make its first field goal until the 14:44 mark, but IUPUI was held to just two points in the opening six minutes. Monroe cut Winthrop’s lead back to 16-13 at the 10:59 mark, but the Eagles fired back with an 8-0 run to build a double-digit lead.
IUPUI closed within eight on multiple occasions before Winthrop took a 37-27 lead at intermission. The Jags snuck within seven when Vincent Brady II got loose for a transition basket off a Counter steal, prompting a Winthrop timeout. Winthrop scored the game’s next 10 points after the timeout and maintained a double-digit lead for the final 16 minutes.
The Jaguars shot 39.7 percent from the floor and had just three assists on 23 field goals. IUPUI was whistled for 24 fouls against Winthrop’s 14, leading to a 34-13 discrepancy in free throw attempts. Winthrop cashed in with 23 made while IUPUI was 12-of-13 (92.3 percent) from the charity stripe.
While IUPUI outscored Winthrop 32-28 in the paint, it occurred despite no points coming from the Jaguars’ four-man frontcourt rotation.
Brady finished with eight points off the Jaguars’ bench and DJ Jackson closed with seven points and four rebounds. Daylan Hamilton added five points in limited action.
The Jaguars will close out the three-game event on Sunday when they face Holy Cross at noon.
NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL
IRISH CHOP DOWN WAKE FOREST, 45-7, ON SENIOR DAY
The University of Notre Dame football team (8-3) won its seventh consecutive Senior Day game and its eight game of the season with a 45-7 victory over Wake Forest in front of a sold-out crowd at Notre Dame Stadium Saturday afternoon.
Senior quarterback Sam Hartman, playing against his former team in his final home game at Notre Dame, led the Irish offensive attack with 277 passing yards and four touchdowns. Junior running back Audric Estimé earned his fifth career 100-yard rushing performance of his career with 22 carries for 115 yards and a touchdown.
The Irish defense shut down the Wake Forest offense all day, led by the front seven. Howard Cross III led the team with nine tackles, followed by JD Bertrand (six) and Javontae Jean-Baptiste with five tackles, a sack and a blocked field goal.
Notre Dame won its seventh-consecutive Senior Day game (the second-best streak in school history) and have outscored their last three final-home game opponents 144-7.
HOW IT HAPPENED
Notre Dame scored the first points of the game late in the first quarter on its third possession of the game. Hartman connected with Jordan Faison for two catches and a first down, then Estimé put together three rushes for 30 yards (a long of 21) to get the Irish to the Wake Forest 30.
Eli Raridon, who made his first career start in today’s game, caught his second career pass one play later for 11 yards to the Demon Deacon 19. Estimé would earn seven yards on second and third down before Hartman found a wide open Devyn Ford out of the backfield for a 12-yard scoring toss and the first receiving touchdown of Ford’s career.
Wake Forest quickly answered the Irish score with a seven-play, 72-yard drive that included an end-around pass and an attempted wide receiver pass throw back that turned into a 20-yard rush. A nine-yard touchdown run capped the Demon Deacon drive.
It was Notre Dame’s turn to answer a touchdown with one of its own. Bolstered by a 22-yard fourth-down reception by Rico Flores Jr., the Irish drive ended with a 35-yard strike from Hartman to a streaking Tobias Merriweather down the middle for a 35-yard touchdown.
Wake Forest drove into scoring range to attempt a 30-yard field goal late in the quarter, but Javontae Jean-Baptiste blocked the kick and Xavier Watts picked it up and returned it 20 yards to give the Irish a scoring opportunity before the half.
Notre Dame started the drive at their own 30-yard line and after a six-yard run and incompletion, Hartman connected with Flores Jr. twice for 25 yards, Merriweather for nine then Jaden Greathouse for 15 yards to the Wake Forest 15-yard line.
The Irish could move no closer to the end zone, however, and Spencer Shrader converted a 37-yard field goal to give the Irish a 17-7 lead at halftime.
The defense set Notre Dame up for a quick score to begin the second half. On the second play of the Wake Forest drive, JD Bertrand beat his block, sacked the Demon Deacon quarterback and stripped the ball for a fumble. Rylie Mills recovered the pigskin at the Wake Forest 19-yard line.
Hartman performed a perfect play-action pass on the first play and found Raridon open in the back of the end zone for the sophomore’s first career touchdown and the Irish pushed the lead to 24-7.
Notre Dame executed a perfect on-side kick recovered by DJ Brown after the touchdown, but could not move the ball on the drive. Wake Forest forced a punt and drove close to midfield before the Irish defense ended the effort on a fourth-down stop by Howard Cross III and Jack Kiser.
The drive started on the Notre Dame 46-yard line with an 11-yard toss to Faison. Jeremiyah Love entered the game and rushed twice, inducing a face mask penalty on his second tough run to put the ball at the Wake Forest 20. Hartman followed with a toss to Flores Jr. for 18 yards to the two-hard line and Estimé scored his 25th career rushing touchdown one play later for a 31-7 lead.
Notre Dame’s defense earned yet another stop for the offense who didn’t waste time to build on the lead. The Irish drove five plays in 80 yards with Hartman tossing his fourth touchdown pass of the game to Greathouse, who caught the ball at the Wake 25-yard line and out-raced the defense to the pylon.
The Irish offense would not stop there. Getting the ball back and with Steve Angeli at quarterback, Estimé did most of the work to surpass 100 yards rushing on the day. Angeli then connected with Faison on a beautiful pass to the back pylon in the end zone from 17 yards out.
BALL STATE FOOTBALL
CARDINALS’ OFFENSE AND DEFENSE BOTH DOMINANT IN 34-3 WIN OVER KENT STATE
MUNCIE, lnd. – Ball State led wire-to-wire and beat Kent State 34-3 to win consecutive games for the first time this season. The 31-point victory was its largest against a Mid-American Conference team since a 52-14 win over Toledo in 2021.
Ball State (4-7, 3-4 MAC) won for the third time in four games and amassed 388 yards total offense in the process. Perhaps more impressive, the Cardinals’ defense limited the Golden Flashes to just 29 yards rushing and only 97 yards total offense – Ball State’s fewest allowed since at least 2000. The Cardinals won for the third time in five games since Kiael Kelly took over as their starting quarterback in Week 7. Kent State (1-10, 0-7 MAC) lost its eight straight.
As has been the case over the past five weeks, the Ball State defense set the tone. Behind a massive pass rush that recorded five sacks for the second time this season, the Cardinals made 10 stops behind the line of scrimmage. Sidney Houston Jr., led the defensive line surge with 4.5 tackles for loss while playing a part in three sacks. Keionte Newson had a pair of TFL with another sack. Mikhari Sibblis, while making his first start, added another sack and Jack Sape was credited with a half-sack while limiting the Kent State offense to just 29 rushing yards and 68 passing yards.
It was the lowest total yardage figure allowed by a MAC team this season, and the lowest by a Ball State team since at least 2000. The Flashes’ 29 yards on the ground were the fewest allowed by the Cardinals since Eastern Kentucky totaled just three in 2016. Kent State managed just 2.0 yards per play, also the lowest in the MAC this year. The Flashes’ ten possessions resulted in eight punts, one field goal and a missed fourth-down attempt.
Perhaps another reason for Kent State’s rushing woes was the absence of their 1,000-yard ball carrier of the past two seasons. The Flashes’ loss was the Cardinals’ gain as transfer running back Marquez Cooper ran ragged against his old club, collecting 140 yards on 25 carries. Averaging 5.6 yards per carry, Cooper recorded the 16th 100-yard game of his career and his third this season. He raised his season rushing mark to 907 yards to leave him 93 yards shy of his third consecutive 1,000-yard season.
Cooper teamed with Kelly to cement the Cardinals’ 1-2 rushing punch, with Ball State also receiving 61 yards and a touchdown from Vaughn Pemberton in the fourth quarter. Together, the trio averaged 6.1 yards per carry while collecting 289 out of Ball State’s 300 net rushing yards. Kelly added 88 yards that included a 22-yard TD. Pemberton’s career-high day included a 45-yard run that was the longest of his career and Ball State’s longest of the season.
It was the Cardinals’ first 300-yard rushing game since a 304-yard day at Eastern Michigan in 2020.
Now 3-2 over their last five games since the Cardinals’ re-made offense embraced redshirt sophomore Kelly as its starting quarterback, Ball State has averaged 227 rushing yards per game. By comparison, Northern Illinois leads the MAC in league play with 199 yards per game.
Ball State scored first on a then-career-long 44-yard field goal by Jackson Courville, with 6:58 remaining in the first period. After Cooper’s 1-yard plunge on the second play of the second quarter put Ball State on top 10-0, Courville topped his own career high with a 48-yarder four minutes later.
After Kent State’s field goal in the final minute of the first half, it was all Cardinals in the second half, with Kelly engineering Ball State to three consecutive touchdowns on long drives of 75, 89 and 88 yards. Second-half dominance was reflected by Ball State’s 15 first downs to just three for Kent State. The Flashes’ final first down came on the final play of the third quarter.
The Cardinals close the regular season next Saturday while hosting Miami at noon.
INDIANA STATE FOOTBALL
SYCAMORES FALL IN REGULAR SEASON FINALE AT SOUTHERN ILLINOIS, 38-9
CARBONDALE, ILL. – Indiana State’s 2023 season came to an end in Saluki Stadium on Saturday afternoon as the Sycamores fell to the host No. 20/16 Southern Illinois Salukis, 38-9.
The Sycamores (1-10, 1-7) took the early lead on Jake Andjelic’s 39-yard field goal on ISU’s opening possession, but Southern Illinois (7-4, 4-4) took advantage of a pair of Indiana State miscues on their way to scoring 38 consecutive points in seizing control of the game. Maddix Blackwell scored on a late 15-yard fumble recovery to provide the final margin in the contest.
Blackwell became the first ISU player to post 100 tackles in a single season since Jonas Griffith (106, 2019) following his 12-tackle effort on Saturday. The sophomore safety finished with 107 total tackles on the season, while adding his second defensive touchdown of 2023 on the year.
The Sycamores marched down the field on 15 plays covering 55 yards spanning nearly eight minutes in scoring on their opening possession. ISU converted three third downs over the possession including a 10-yard connection from Cade Chambers to Harry Van Dyne on 3rd-and-9 that moved the ball down to the SIU 28. Jake Andjelic capped the drive with a 39-yard field goal to put ISU ahead early.
The Salukis responded with Ro Elliott’s nine-yard touchdown run to put SIU ahead 7-3. SIU took advantage of a pair of ISU miscues over the following two possessions to build a 21-3 lead and the Salukis continued to press their advantage the rest of the way in taking the win.
Chambers finished the game 14-of-28 through the air for 138 yards, while Gavin Screws went 2-for-4 for 15 yards in relief in the fourth quarter. Dinka (38) and Lawrence (32) combined for 70 rushing yards on the day, while Van Dyne posted a team-high five catches for 53 yards.
Blackwell (12), Ethan Hoover (12), Geoffrey Brown (11), and Garret Ollendieck (10) all posted double-digit tackling efforts on the day. Zane Boozer added a team-high 3.0 tackles-for-loss and 1.5 sacks, while Brown added an interception in the loss.
SIU quarterback Nic Baker finished 22-of-27 through the air for 282 yards and three touchdowns. Izaiah Hartrup finished with eight catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns, while six Salukis combined for 50 rushing yards in the win.
PJ Jules led SIU with 12 tackles in the game, while Tim Varga posted eight stops, 3.0 tackles-for-loss, and a sack.
How They Scored
Indiana State scored on its opening possession as the Sycamores marched down the field on 15 plays covering 55 yards before Jake Andjelic connected on a 39-yard field goal to make it a 3-0 ballgame.
Southern Illinois responded with Ro Elliott’s nine-yard touchdown run with 2:42 remaining in the first quarter to cap a nine-play, 80-yard drive and put the Salukis ahead 7-3.
The Salukis added to their lead following a botched ISU kickoff return that led to SIU taking possession at the ISU 22. The ensuing play from scrimmage saw Nic Baker connecting on a 22-yard touchdown pass to Izaiah Hartrup to put SIU ahead 14-3 with 2:36 remaining in the first quarter.
SIU added to the lead with 14:20 left in the second quarter as Justin Strong hauled in a three-yard reception from Nic Baker following an ISU fumble to put the Salukis ahead 21-3.
Jake Baumgarte put SIU ahead 24-3 with 6:49 remaining in the second quarter connecting on a 25-yard field goal to cap a 10-play, 61-yard drive.
The Salukis added a late score just before the end of the first half as Baker connected on a 60-yard touchdown pass to Hartrup to put the margin at 31-3.
Southern Illinois made it a 38-3 game with 14:03 remaining in the fourth quarter as Devin Cowan scooped up an ISU fumble and returned it 61 yards for a touchdown.
The Sycamores defense provided the final score of the game as Zane Boozer forced a fumble behind the line of scrimmage and Maddix Blackwell picked it up and returned it 15 yards for a touchdown with 10:56 remaining to provide the final 38-9 score.
News & Notes
Maddix Blackwell became the first Indiana State football player to post 100 tackles in a single season since Jonas Griffith (106) achieved the feat in 2019.

VALPO THREATENS NATION’S LONGEST HOME WINNING STREAK, ST. THOMAS PREVAILS IN ONE-SCORE GAME
The Valparaiso University football team never stopped battling.
The Beacons went toe-to-toe with the defending Pioneer Football League champion, the preseason favorite to win the league and this year’s PFL runner-up in Saturday afternoon’s season finale in St. Paul, Minn., only to see host St. Thomas escape with a 16-10 victory, narrowly keeping the nation’s longest home winning streak intact by recording their 31st straight home win. The determination that fans have come to expect from the Valpo football program was on display yet again, but a season that was filled with one-score games ended with the Brown & Gold on the wrong side of another battle that could have gone either way.
How It Happened
St. Thomas elected to receive the opening kickoff after winning the toss, and wasted little time in connecting on the game’s first big play. A 50-yard pass completion on the first play from scrimmage set up an eventual 29-yard field goal to give the guests the early edge.
After the opening drive resulted in a field goal for the Tommies, each team punted twice before the first quarter came to an end. Evan Matthes (Reston, Va. / South Lake [West Virginia]) had boots of 48 and 47 yards before pinning the Tommies at their own three after a 43-yarder early in the second stanza. He again sent one inside the 10 with a 42 yarder to cap a sequence where each of Valpo’s first four drives resulted in punts.
Despite being pinned deep by Matthes, the hosts put together a touchdown drive, going 93 yards on eight plays including a 30-yard TD pass to make it 10-0.
After St. Thomas assembled its best drive of the half, Valpo followed suit. Quarterback Rowan Keefe (Park Ridge, Ill. / Maine South) got in a rhythm with three straight completions in the middle of the drive, all of 10 yards or more, eventually setting up a 38-yard field goal try that Ryan Hawk (Columbus, Ohio / Bishop Hartley) sent through the uprights.
Valpo notched an interception on the final play of the first half as Owen Cherry (LaGrange, Ill. / Lyons Township) grabbed a Cherry pick to send the game to the break at 10-3.
Valpo got a big stop on fourth-and-7 at the Valpo 30 as St. Thomas turned it over on downs with 7:57 left in the third. That prompted a game-tying touchdown drive that featured a pair of big catches by Solomon Davis (Brighton, Tenn. / Brighton) and one from Chris Gundy (Smithfield, Va. / Smithfield). Davis hauled in the 22-yard grab for the score to make it 10-10 at 3:33 in the third.
Several big runs by Hope Adebayo highlighted a drive where St. Thomas found the end zone on a nine-yard rush by Landon Reed on the first play of the fourth quarter. The PAT failed, but the Tommies still grabbed a 16-10 advantage.
Valpo pulled out all the stops on its first drive of the fourth quarter. Matthes completed a 19-yard pass to Wade Abrams (Fox River Grove, Ill. / Cary-Grove) on a fake punt on fourth-and-8 from Valpo’s own 22-yard line to extend the drive. Another big play was a 16-yard catch by Brandon Jimenez (Suffern, N.Y. / Don Bosco Prep [Albany]) on third-and-9 from the Valpo 42.
A key personal foul penalty eventually set Valpo behind the sticks, and a promising drive was extinguished at the St. Thomas 25 on a turnover on downs with 8:35 on the clock.
The Tommies ran clock by moving the chains several times, but eventually punted it away and allowed Valpo to take over on its own 10 with 2:55 on the clock, needing 90 yards to score a go-ahead touchdown.
Valpo did not pick up a first down on the ensuing drive, eventually turning it over on downs and setting up victory formation for the hosts.
Inside the Game
Davis hauled in eight catches for 82 yards and one touchdown. The TD was his sixth receiving this season, the 10th receiving of his career and his 11th career total score including one rushing TD.
Hawk’s 38 yarder was his fourth make in seven chances this season.
Matthes had five punts for 229 yards, averaging 45.8 yards per punt and sending three inside the 20. He finished the season with a punting average of 43.2, tied for third in program history.
Cherry’s interception was the first of his career.
Redshirt senior Evan Annis (Hilliard, Ohio / Hilliard Davidson) posted a team-high nine tackles, while Colin Graves (Seattle, Wash. / Bishop Blanchet) and Mohamed Kamara (Kalamazoo, Mich. / Kalamazoo Central [Hope]) had eight stops apiece.
Valpo boasted six tackles for loss and three sacks.
The Beacons were outgained 296-236. The teams were even in the turnover battle, and Valpo finished the season without winning the turnover battle in any game this year.
Mann ran for 42 yards on 11 carries, while Keefe finished the game at 13-of-25 passing for 135 yards and one score.
Seven of Valpo’s 11 games this season were one-score affairs. Seven of the eight PFL games were decided by 10 points or fewer and six of them were one-score affairs. Valpo finished 3-8 overall and 2-6 in PFL play but five of the six PFL losses were one-score games.
A Valpo win would have represented the program’s longest winning streak since 2003 and the first time the Beacons had won the final three league games of a season since 1971.

November 19, 1892 -Yale versus Harvard game at the Boston area school. The V-formation of Princeton was modified by Harvard’s Head Coach, Lorin F. Deland. Deland had devised what would forever be known as the “Flying Wedge,” where he had his players form two smaller V’s of five players each and the runner who would signal the formations together into a single unit and then get lost in the humanity. However, Yale was ready for the challenge as Walter Camp received some intel on the formation and devised a way to stop it. Stop Yale did as they won the tightly fought contest with Harvard 6-0. The 1892 Yale Bulldogs football team compiled a perfect 13–0 record, outscored opponents by a total of 429 to 0, and has been recognized as the national champion by the Billingsley Report, Helms Athletic Foundation, Houlgate System, National Championship Foundation, and Parke H. Davis according to Wikipedia.

The 83rd Grey Cup – America Wins?
November 19, 1995 – Taylor Field, Regina, Saskatchewan – The year an American Team took home the Grey Cup. What? Is that right? An American team won the Canadian Football League’s Grey Cup? In fact it is very true. The 83rd edition of the Grey Cup for the CFL Champion to be crowned was played between the Baltimore Stallions and the Calgary Stampeders. The Stallions won the game by a score of 37–20. It marked the only time that an American-based team won the Grey Cup. It was only the second season for the Baltimore club, and yet despite that, the Stallions would not be going for a repeat as the franchise ended up being dissolved and then added to make a reincarnated Montreal franchise, that had closed shop in 1986 and go under the old Alouettes moniker, due to Baltimore getting the NFL’s old Cleveland franchise which we now know as the Ravens. According to the website scorum.com Baltimore got on the board first with a Chris Wright 82-yard punt return for a touchdown. The Stampeders put the score within one point at the end of the first quarter with a couple of field goals by Mark McLoughlin. Calgary quarterback Doug Flutie put the Stampeders up when he threw a TD pass to Marvin Pope in the 2nd stanza. The Stallions then bolted to a 23-13 halftime score on a scoop and score and three field goals. The Stallions never looked back as Tracy Ham used his feet and arms to keep putting points on the board for Baltimore. The Stallions quarterback Tracy Ham won the game MVP award.

Auburn’s Ben Obomanu accounted for two of the scores as he caught one and took another in on the ground, and Kenny Irons rushed for one more. The Tide finally got on the board on a 2nd quarter fumble recovery but the Tigers responded with a Brandon Cox touchdown pass to Cole Bennett later in the 2nd quarter to make a halftime score of 28-7. The second half was fairly quiet as Alabama added a field goal and a TD with a two point conversion as the Auburn Tigers held on for the 28-18 victory!
Grey Cup 94
November 19, 2006 – Canad Inns Stadium, Winnipeg – The coveted Grey Cup’s 94th chapter was played as the Montreal Alouettes took on the BC Lions. CBC Sports website fills us in with the action.

The feat has only been done 3 other times in the history of the Grey Cup. The Lions Quarterback Dave Dickenson, was able to move the ball against Montreal’s defense but the Alouettes would allow them to cross the goal line just once in the contest. But it was the B.C. “D” that really held the score down as they helped the Lions win their 5th Championship as they defeated the Montreal Alouettes, 25-14. In all of the post game excitement the Lions player even broke the cup portion of the Grey Cup Trophy off of its base!

Hall of Fame Birthday for November 19
November 19, 1949 – Portland, Oregon – Oregon’s amazing wide receiver/running back Ahmad Rashad was born. Yes you saw it correctly the title running back was added. According to the footballfoundation.org during Ahmad’s very first game he turned in a three-touchdown performance. The coaches wanted to get Rashad as many touches as possible so in order to accomplish this they moved the young man to the backfield the following year and he led the team in rushing! Just because he lined up in the backfield and toted the ball through holes in the line did not restrict him from catching passes downfield. The Offensive Coordinator was more than happy to call plays for Ahmad to use his receiving skill set too. After all the quarterback of the Ducks at that time was none other than a man named Dan Fouts! During his senior season his rushing totals ranked eighth nationally and Rashad became a first-team All-American. The National Football Foundation selected Ahmad Rashad to enter into their College Football Hall of Fame in 2007.
