BIG 10 FOOTBALL RE-CAPS

SATURDAY, NOV. 19
#3 MICHIGAN 19, ILLINOIS 17: Jake Moody made a go-ahead, 35-yard field goal with nine seconds left, lifting No. 3 Michigan to a 19-17 win over Illinois on Saturday. The Wolverines (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten, No. 3 CFP) played much of the second half without star running back Blake Corum, who grabbed his left knee after being tackled just before halftime. [FULL RECAP]

INDIANA 39, MICHIGAN STATE 31 (2OT): Shaun Shivers ran for 115 yards and two touchdowns, including a 1-yarder in double overtime, to lift Indiana to a 39-31 come-from-behind victory over Michigan State on Saturday. Indiana’s James Head Jr. blocked Ben Patton’s 28-yard field goal in overtime and Michigan State’s Michael Fletcher blocked Charles Campbell’s 37-yard kick to send the game to double overtime. [FULL RECAP]

WISCONSIN 15, NEBRASKA 14: Graham Mertz scored on a 2-yard quarterback sneak with 35 seconds left to complete Wisconsin’s comeback from an 11-point deficit entering the fourth quarter, and the Badgers beat Nebraska 15-14 Saturday for their ninth straight win in the series. Wisconsin became bowl-eligible for a 21st straight year and kept the Freedom Trophy, which has been awarded to the winner since 2014. [FULL RECAP]

PURDUE 17, NORTHWESTERN 9: Aidan O’Connell threw two touchdown passes in his final home game and kept the Purdue Boilermakers in contention for the Big Ten West title with a 17-9 victory over Northwestern on Saturday. The former walk-on went 16 of 25 with 159 yards, hooking up with his childhood friend Charlie Jones six times for 46 yards and one score. Purdue could reach its conference championship game by winning its third straight next week coupled with an Iowa loss. [FULL RECAP]

#2 OHIO STATE 43, MARYLAND 30: C.J. Stroud and Ohio State have waited a year for this. Dallan Hayden scored three touchdowns in the second half of No. 2 Ohio State’s 43-30 victory over Maryland on Saturday. The Buckeyes and No. 3 Michigan cleared their final hurdles, and now Ohio State will try to avenge last season’s loss to the Wolverines — its first in the series in a decade. [FULL RECAP]

#11 PENN STATE 55, RUTGERS 10: Sean Clifford ran for a touchdown and threw for another and No. 11 Penn State scored twice on fumble returns and once on a kickoff return in beating Rutgers 55-10 Saturday.

Clifford (17 of 26 for 157 yards) threw a 10-yard TD pass to Tyler Warren and scored on a 14-yard run as the Nittany Lions beat Rutgers (4-7, 1-7) for the 16th straight time. [FULL RECAP]

IOWA 13, MINNESOTA 10: Drew Stevens made a 21-yard field goal with 28 seconds left to lift Iowa over Minnesota for a 13-10 victory on Saturday, after the Hawkeyes forced two late turnovers to take control of the Big Ten West with their eighth straight win over the Gophers for the Floyd of Rosedale trophy. Jack Campbell caused a fumble and came up with an interception off a tipped pass to thwart Minnesota drives in the closing minutes for Iowa (7-4, 5-3), which would repeat as division champions and return to the conference title game by beating Nebraska next week. [FULL RECAP]

SOUTH CAROLINA RUNS OVER NO. 5 TENNESSEE 63-38; HOOKER HURT

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Spencer Rattler had the best day of his unpredictable career, throwing for 438 yards and six touchdowns as South Carolina beat No. 5 Tennessee 63-38 on Saturday night, all but eliminating the Volunteers from the playoffs.

Tennessee (9-2, 6-2 Southeastern, No. 5 CFP) may have also lost Heisman Trophy candidate Hendon Hooker, who left the game in the fourth quarter with a leg injury, falling and fumbling without being hit.

Even before the injury, the quarterback of the night was Rattler, who went from Heisman contender to the bench at Oklahoma in 2021.

“That was probably the best I’ve ever felt in a game. I felt unstoppable,” said Rattler, adding he thought it was one of the best wins in college football history.

“This game and the next one could change the narrative of this program forever,” Rattler said.

The junior came into the night with nine interceptions and eight touchdowns and averaging 198 yards a game passing. There were questions about whether the Gamecocks (7-4, 4-4) might want to test out the backup.

But Rattler was patient in the pocket, dropping passes into the narrowest of windows. He completed 30 of 37 passes and ran when he had to with five carries for 16 yards. And he even caught a pass in the red zone from Dakeron Joyner, who South Carolina typically uses as a running threat under center.

“He was on. You talk about players and being in the zone,” South Carolina coach Shane Beamer said.

Rattler’s best day before Saturday was 387 yards against Kansas State for Oklahoma in 2020 and five TDs for the Sooners against Western Carolina in 2021.

Antwane Wells Jr. caught 11 passes for 177 yards and Josh Vann and Jaheim Bell each caught two touchdowns for the Gamecocks. Joyner had two rushing scores.

NO. 2 OHIO STATE HOLDS OFF TERPS 43-30, MICHIGAN NEXT

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) C.J. Stroud and Ohio State have waited a year for this.

Now it’s time to face Michigan – and after more struggles than usual this weekend, the Buckeyes and Wolverines will indeed be undefeated when they meet next weekend.

Dallan Hayden scored three touchdowns in the second half of No. 2 Ohio State’s 43-30 victory over Maryland on Saturday. The Buckeyes and No. 3 Michigan cleared their final hurdles, and now Ohio State will try to avenge last season’s loss to the Wolverines – its first in the series in a decade.

“We’ve been licking our wounds for 365 days, hearing all the laughing, everything that everybody’s been saying,” said Stroud, Ohio State’s star quarterback. “I definitely think that we’ve been preparing for it, not only on the field but in the weight room as well.”

Just before Ohio State (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten, No. 2 CFP) and Maryland (6-5, 3-5) kicked off, Michigan edged Illinois on a late field goal. The Buckeyes then had plenty of problems of their own against the Terrapins. Ohio State trailed 13-10 at halftime, and the Buckeyes were up just 33-30 when they turned the ball over on downs at the Maryland 42 with 6:36 remaining in the game.

Ohio State forced a three-and-out, however, and then the Buckeyes ran out most of the remaining time. Noah Ruggles kicked a 45-yard field goal with 42 seconds left, and Steele Chambers added a defensive touchdown with 9 seconds to play.

“We’re never satisfied with a loss, obviously, but what you saw today is us go blow for blow with a team I consider to be one of the best in the country,” Maryland coach Michael Locksley said.

Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa, whose fumble Chambers scored on, was injured on that play and walked off very slowly.

Hayden finished with 146 yards on 27 carries.

NO. 4 TCU STILL UNDEFEATED AFTER GAME-ENDING FG AT BAYLOR

WACO, Texas (AP) Fourth-ranked TCU had players shuffling on and off the field as the final seconds were ticking off the clock. Kicker Griffin Kell was the last one to get into place.

“That looked like chaos, but we practice it every Thursday exactly like that,” Frogs coach Sonny Dykes said.

And the Horned Frogs executed it perfectly to stay undefeated in what was no practice situation.

Kell kicked a 40-yard field goal on the game’s final play, and TCU beat Baylor 29-28 on Saturday, scoring nine points in the final 2:07 to avoid another potential playoff-busting loss on the banks of the Brazos River.

Emari Demercardo scored on a 3-yard TD run to cap a 90-yard drive with 2:07 left to get the Frogs (11-0, 8-0 Big 12, No. 4 CFP) within 28-26, but he was unable to pull in a pass on the 2-point conversion attempt.

After kicking deep, TCU used all three of its timeouts while forcing a three-and-out, and it got the ball back at its 31 with 1:34 left. Max Duggan had two completions before converting one third down with a 12-yard run on a quarterback draw.

Demercardo was short of a clock-stopping first down on a run to the Baylor 23, going down in the center of the field with about 16 seconds left before the offensive and special teams units ran by each other. The ball was snapped at 3 seconds, and the kick by Kell, who earlier had an extra-point attempt clank off the upright, went through as time ran out.

“The great thing about that last drive, we were throwing all of our day one concepts,” Duggan said. “We were throwing easy stuff that we practice and we can do with our eyes closed, and stuff that you believe in. … So just going out there, being confident, believing it was going to happen, and Griff makes a huge kick for us.”

TCU, which already had clinched a spot in the Big 12 championship game, hasn’t been undefeated this deep in a season since 2010, when it finished 13-0 with a Rose Bowl victory and No. 2 national ranking.

NO. 7 USC OUTLASTS NO. 16 UCLA TO REACH PAC-12 TITLE GAME

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) Caleb Williams bolstered Southern California’s push for a possible spot in the College Football Playoff with the biggest game of his career against the Trojans’ arch-rival.

He also might have to book a trip to New York next month as a Heisman Trophy finalist.

Williams had 503 yards of total offense and accounted for three touchdowns Saturday night and the seventh-ranked Trojans beat No. 16 UCLA 48-45 on Saturday night to reach the Pac-12 Championship game.

“If you told me last year where we’d be now, I’d call you a dead liar,” wide receiver Kyle Ford said.

The Trojans (10-1, 8-1) got their first win of the season over a ranked team. They will wait to see who their opponent will be on Dec. 2 in Las Vegas for the conference crown.

“It’s obviously very, very meaningful,” USC coach Lincoln Riley said. “With all that was riding on it on top of that, it was a clutch performance by our football team to get it done.”

Williams completed 32 of 43 passes for 470 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. The sophomore also rushed for 33 yards and a score. It was the second-most passing yards by a USC quarterback in 92 editions of the Crosstown Showdown.

“I’ve played in like two other games that are rivalries, and I went into this game expecting the same thing. You’ve got to do your job, and do your job at a high level and keep playing, keep swinging,” Riley said.

In the first matchup where both LA schools were led by a Black quarterback, Williams outdueled UCLA counterpart Dorian Thompson-Robinson.

The fifth-year senior accounted for all six Bruins’ touchdowns and 384 yards of total offense, but also had four turnovers (three interceptions, one fumble) that the Trojans converted into 10 points.

NO. 19 K-STATE BEATS WVU, NEARS BIG 12 TITLE GAME BERTH

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) One of No. 19 Kansas State’s longest road trips of the Big 12 season might as well have been a home game for quarterback Will Howard.

Howard threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, Cincere Mason returned an interception for a TD and the Wildcats moved closer to a berth in the Big 12 championship game by beating West Virginia 48-31 on Saturday.

Playing at West Virginia was as close as Howard will get to his hometown of Downingtown, about 280 miles (451 kilometers) from Morgantown in eastern Pennsylvania. Howard said about 30 relatives and friends cheered him on.

“I was fired up to be able to play for them,” Howard said. “Just to be able to look up and see all of them, it feels good.”

Kansas State (8-3, 6-2 Big 12, No. 15 CFP) can clinch a title game spot alongside No. 4 TCU on Dec. 3 with a win in its regular season finale at home Saturday against Kansas, or with a loss by Texas to Baylor on Friday.

Howard said coach Chris Klieman told the team in the locker room to take some time to soak in the win over the Mountaineers first.

“We’re going to enjoy this one today and have fun on the plane ride home,” Howard said. “We know it’s our process mindset every week: One day at a time. We know we’ve got a big one next week. But we’re going to start worrying about that one tomorrow.”

West Virginia (4-7, 2-6) failed to become bowl eligible for the second time under fourth-year coach Neal Brown and for only the fourth time since 2000.

NO. 1 GEORGIA TOPS KENTUCKY, GOES UNBEATEN IN SEC AGAIN

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Between Kenny McIntosh and Jack Podlesny, top-ranked Georgia got all the important points it needed on a day where style points weren’t possible.

McIntosh rushed for a career-best 143 yards, including a crucial 9-yard score late in the third quarter, and the Bulldogs withstood Kentucky’s fourth-quarter rally Saturday for a 16-6 win and its second consecutive unbeaten season in the Southeastern Conference.

The Bulldogs (11-0, 8-0 SEC, No. 1 CFP) clinched the Eastern Division title last week and sought another perfect finish in league play. They came away as just the third SEC team since 1992 to post consecutive 8-0 league marks, following Alabama (2008-09) and Florida (1995-96).

Georgia’s success wasn’t easy in cold, windy conditions, and it settled for three Podlesny field goals before McIntosh’s TD provided a needed cushion.

“With these weather conditions, we’re going to play these kind of games like this,” coach Kirby Smart said. “But I’m really proud of when our guys’ backs are against the wall, how they come out fighting with what they do.

“Certainly, we could’ve played better, probably in the red area. They could have stopped some drives defensively; we gave them a couple of conversions on penalties. I have to give Kentucky a lot of credit for bouncing back and being a really physical football team.”

Georgia’s chance to pad the lead ended on downs at Kentucky’s 1. The Wildcats to made it interesting with a 99-yard drive that ended with Will Levis’ 8-yard touchdown pass to Barion Brown. Levis’ two-point conversion pass failed, and the chance to make it a one-score game died when Matt Ruffalo’s field goal hooked left after a low, rolling snap.

Kentucky (6-5, 3-5) then turned it over on downs and lost for the fifth time in seven games.

DANIELS, CAIN POWER NO. 6 LSU TO 41-10 VICTORY OVER UAB

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) The hollering of exuberant LSU players penetrated the walls of their locker room and echoed in neighboring rooms and hallways beneath the north end zone stands in Tiger Stadium.

The rowdy celebration was more about the energy and sense of purpose the sixth-ranked Tigers exhibited in a cold, wet, half-empty stadium against a heavy underdog than the mere fact that they won a game they were supposed to win.

Noah Cain scored on three short runs, Jayden Daniels had touchdowns rushing and passing, and LSU methodically pulled away from UAB for a 41-10 victory Saturday night.

“I’m so proud of our mental toughness and (the players’) ability to do it the right way against a team they’re supposed to beat,” said coach LSU Brian Kelly, who has orchestrated a remarkable one-year turnaround in his first season in Baton Rouge.

Daniels completed 22 of 29 passes for 297 yards and ran for 111 yards on 12 carries. His top target was receiver Malik Nabers, who caught seven passes for 129 yards, including a 47-yarder on LSU’s first touchdown drive. Brian Thomas also had a late TD catch for LSU (9-2).

Daniels was gratified by how his unit played one week after largely stagnating in a tense 13-10 victory at Arkansas the previous week.

“I was seeing the field. My feet and eyes were tied together,” Daniels said. “I feel like it was my most efficient game of the year. It was good for us to keep that rhythm going and keep good offensive flow.”

The comfortable victory meant LSU could continue to climb in the The AP Top 25 Poll after No. 5 Tennessee’s 63-38 loss at South Carolina – depending on whether the Tigers are leapfrogged by No. 7 USC, which won at rival UCLA 48-45.

NO. 9 CLEMSON TOPS MIAMI 40-10 FOR 40TH STRAIGHT AT HOME

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) DJ Uiagalelei understood entering the season there’d be plenty of doubters ready to count out Clemson getting back on top in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Instead, the ninth-ranked Tigers finished off a perfect regular-season conference run with a 40-10 victory over Miami on Saturday.

“I think it shows testament to the guys in the program, sticking with it, staying true to ourselves,” Uiagalelei said. “Just coming out each and every game putting in the work and know it’ll come out.”

Uiagalelei threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third while Clemson’s defense limited Miami to 98 yards, its fewest this season.

With just “98 total yards– in modern day football– that’s hard to do,” Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said. “Really proud of our defense.”

The Tigers (10-1, 8-0) have won at least 10 games in 12 straight seasons and – for a half – had their most dominant showing on both sides of the ball.

Clemson scored touchdowns on three of its first four possessions while Miami (5-6, 3-4) was stuffed by the Tigers defense.

Uiagalelei connected on a 7-yard TD pass to Davis Allen, then ran one in from 8 yards out to lead 14-0 less than 11 minutes in.

After safety Jalyn Phillips’ interception, Clemson again found the end zone on Uiagalelei’s 2-yard throw to tight end Luke Price.

“I thought the first half was really clean,” Uiagalelei said. “In the second half, (three) turnovers really killed us.”

Miami had no answers. Freshman Jacurri Brown, who sparked the Hurricanes to a 35-14 win over Georgia Tech last week, was hounded by Clemson’s defenders and off target when he was able to throw the ball.

The Hurricanes managed just 8 yards total the first two quarters.

In the second half, Miami took advantage of Clemson’s sloppy play to tighten things up. A fourth-quarter fumble by Uiagalelei was returned to the Tigers 10 and backup Jake Garcia tossed a 1-yard score to Kahlil Brantley to cut things to 26-10.

NO. 11 PENN STATE BEATS RUTGERS FOR THE 16TH STRAIGHT TIME

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) James Franklin picked up his 100th career coaching victory by seeing No. 11 Penn State make big plays in every phase of the game.

Sean Clifford ran for a touchdown and threw for another and the Nittany Lions scored twice on fumble returns and once on a kickoff return in beating Rutgers 55-10 Saturday.

Freshman Nick Singleton scored on a 100-yard kickoff return, Kobe King gave Penn State (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten) the lead for good with a 14-yard fumble return and Ji’Ayir Brown rumbled 70 yards with another fumble as the Nittany Lions blew it open in the second half.

“We’re playing really good complementary football,” Franklin said. “We scored three non-offensive touchdowns, which is special. We’re playing really good on defense.”

Clifford (17 of 26 for 157 yards) threw a 10-yard TD pass to Tyler Warren and scored on a 14-yard run as the Nittany Lions beat Rutgers (4-7, 1-7) for the 16th straight time.

Penn State led 28-10 at the half and the game was all but over after Curtis Jacobs sacked freshman quarterback Gavin Wimsatt on the fourth play of the second half and Brown picked up the fumble and had a clear path to the end zone.

“I thought we were dominant,” said Jacobs, who felt the scoop and score turned the momentum. “We had a little mishap early, but we were able to get back to where we were supposed to be.”

The last time Penn State scored on offense, defense and special teams in a game was in 2017 against Indiana.

Freshman Kaytron Allen rushed for 117 yards and scored on an 8-yard run as Penn State won its third straight. The Nittany Lions defense limited Rutgers to 167 yards and forced three turnovers that led to 21 points.

OKLAHOMA TOPS NO. 24 OKLAHOMA STATE, BECOMES BOWL ELIGIBLE

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma wasn’t in its usual position of contending for the Big 12 title and a spot in the College Football Playoff.

But the Sooners still won Bedlam.

Dillon Gabriel passed for two touchdowns and ran for another and Oklahoma knocked off No. 24 Oklahoma State 28-13 on Saturday night.

The matchup could be one of the last in the rivalry with both teams as Big 12 members. Oklahoma is slated to leave for the Southeastern Conference in the next few years.

“Who knows how many more times, if at all, we’ll play,” Oklahoma coach Brent Venables said. “I haven’t seen the schedules for next year yet and, you know, new teams coming in (joining the Big 12). So having that trophy right now means a lot to these players.”

Gabriel passed for 259 yards and ran for 30. Eric Gray rushed for 90 yards and a touchdown and Drake Stoops had a career-high six catches for 89 yards for the Sooners (6-5, 3-5 Big 12), who jumped out to a 28-0 first-quarter lead and held on to become bowl eligible.

“We forced turnovers and our guys really came out ready to play, and they were incredibly motivated,” Venables said.

Venables got the Sooners back on track in the series. Oklahoma had won six straight against Oklahoma State before the Cowboys won last year’s game.

Spencer Sanders passed for 381 yards and a touchdown for Oklahoma State, but he threw four interceptions.

“We just didn’t protect him very well and put him on the run a lot,” Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said. “And I think he hurried a few throws.”

Brennan Presley had nine catches for 118 yards and Braydon Johnson had a career-high seven receptions for 109 yards for the Cowboys (7-4, 4-4, No. 22 CFP), who now are eliminated from contention for a spot in the Big 12 title game after reaching it last year.

NO. 12 OREGON STAYS IN PAC-12 HUNT, TOPS NO. 10 UTAH 20-17

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Bo Nix threw for 287 yards and one touchdown despite being hobbled by a leg injury, Oregon intercepted Utah quarterback Cameron Rising three times, and the 12th-ranked Ducks knocked off the 10th-ranked Utes 20-17 on Saturday night.

A week after watching their hopes at the College Football Playoff evaporate, the Ducks rebounded with a gutty effort that preserved their chances of getting back to the Pac-12 championship game for the fourth straight season.

The Ducks (9-2, 7-1 Pac-12, No. 12 CFP) need only a win over rival Oregon State next Saturday to book their ticket to Las Vegas and a date with Southern California.

Nix was clearly limited after suffering an injury to his right ankle/foot late in last week’s loss to Washington that snapped Oregon’s 23-game home win streak. He threw a 4-yard TD pass to Troy Franklin in the first half and Bucky Irving added a 10-yard TD run as the Ducks built a 17-3 halftime lead.

Camden Lewis added field goals of 30 and 41 yards for the Ducks, the second of which came early in the fourth quarter and proved to be the winning points.

Nix finished 25 of 37 passing and his own interception late in the fourth quarter proved not to be costly for the Ducks. Nix’s first carry of the night came with less than 2 minutes remaining when he faked a pitch, dived for 2 yards and picked up the clinching first down for the Ducks.

Karene Reid returned a fumble 11 yards for a touchdown early in the third quarter that sparked the Utes. Jaylen Dixon added an 18-yard touchdown run on a jet sweep later in the third quarter, but the Utes (8-3, 6-2, No. 10 CFP) couldn’t overcome an off night from their quarterback.

Rising was 21 of 38 passing, set a career-high with the three interceptions and flubbed an easy throw on fourth down in the fourth quarter deep in Oregon territory. Two of the picks came off deflected passes, but the costliest was Rising’s late throw across the middle that Oregon’s Bennett Williams nabbed near midfield with 4:15 remaining.

Utah got the ball back, but Rising couldn’t connect with Solomon Enis on a fourth-and-6 throw from midfield in the closing minutes.

GA TECH ERASES 17-POINT DEFICIT, BEATS NO. 13 NORTH CAROLINA

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Zach Gibson threw for 174 yards and Georgia Tech scored 21 unanswered points for a 21-17 road win against No. 13 North Carolina on Saturday.

Georgia Tech (5-6, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) trailed 17-0 late in the first half, but started to methodically move the ball. All three of its scoring drives were for 68-plus yards and culminated with rushing touchdowns.

A 6-yard score on the ground by Hassan Hall with just over 11 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter proved to be the ticket for the Yellow Jackets, who kept their bowl hopes alive and improved to 4-3 under interim coach Brent Key.

“I don’t think there was anyone in the locker room that could tell you that it was 17-0,” Key said. “That is who this team is. Regardless of the score, adversity and what takes place in a game, they take it one play at a time.”

North Carolina (9-2, 6-1 ACC) was riding a six-game winning streak and clinched the ACC’s Coastal Division last week. The Tar Heels had a chance to regain the lead late in the fourth quarter, but Josh Downs dropped a 4th-and-11 pass from quarterback Drake Maye in the end zone with just over four minutes remaining.

Maye, who had emerged as a possible Heisman contender as a redshirt freshman, failed to score a touchdown for the first time this season and had a season-low 202 yards passing. He was also sacked a season-high six times by Georgia Tech, three of which came via Keion White.

After UNC went ahead 17-0 with a little more than three minutes left in the first half, Georgia Tech held the Heels to 97 yards of offense on their final 33 plays.

“I thought we were mature enough to play in what would be called a trap game,” UNC coach Mack Brown said. “I thought we were beyond that after Virginia, but we obviously weren’t. I thought we did a poor job of preparing them and didn’t play well enough to win.”

BILLS DIG THEMSELVES OUT OF SNOW TO MAKE TRIP TO DETROIT

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills executives Ron Raccuia and Derek Boyko weren’t going to let a little – actually, a lot – of snow stop them from picking up left tackle Dion Dawkins on Saturday morning.

When their vehicle couldn’t get any further because of mounds of snow blocking the road in one of Buffalo’s southern suburbs, Raccuia did the next best thing.

“Ron said, ‘I’m going to walk to Dion’s house and walk him back to the car.’ And that’s exactly what he did,” said Boyko, the vice president of communications for the Bills.

No big deal, Raccuia added during a phone interview with The Associated Press as he and Boyko headed to Buffalo International Airport to catch the Bills’ flight to Detroit for their relocated “home” game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

“It was probably a quarter of a mile,” said Raccuia, the team’s executive vice president and chief operating officer. “Boyko would have done the same thing.”

The operation of getting everyone to the team facility began at 9:30 a.m. and ended with every member of the staff and players boarding buses, which received a police escort to the airport for a 45-minute flight that departed at about 4:45 p.m. EST.

The Bills-Browns game was moved to Ford Field in downtown Detroit because of the massive lake-effect storm that had dumped as much as 7 feet of snow over western New York since Thursday night.

One of the hardest hit areas was Orchard Park, where the Bills are based and many of their players live.

“We had a lot of resources willing to help, including a couple of snowmobile clubs,” Raccuia said, though snowmobiles weren’t needed in the end.

“We had snowplow drivers, we had staff members, everyone in football ops, security, game-day ticketing, Derek, myself, everybody chipped in,” he added. “We had car pools. We dug players out of their driveways. We picked up players. Anything you can think of to get it done.”

JIM BOEHEIM GETS 1,000TH WIN AS SYRACUSE TOPS NORTHEASTERN

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim reached his 1,000th career victory on Saturday in a 76-48 win over Northeastern.

Joe Girard had 21 points and five 3-pointers for the Orange (2-1), Jesse Edwards added 19 points and seven rebounds and freshman Judah Mintz scored 18 points.

Boeheim has been at the helm of Syracuse since 1976, and had 101 wins over the course of five seasons vacated in 2015 by the NCAA.

The Orange led Northeastern in points in the paint (44-20), points off turnovers (18-10), and fast break points (13-0).

The Orange jumped out to a 9-0 lead over the first two minutes led the rest of the way. Syracuse pieced together a 21-6 run in the second half to boost its lead to 68-39.

Jared Turner had a team-high seven points for Northeastern (0-4), which has lost all nine meetings with Syracuse.

Syracuse plays on Monday against Richmond at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

IRVING COULD RETURN SUNDAY, NETS LIST HIM AS QUESTIONABLE

NEW YORK (AP) Kyrie Irving could return from his suspension and play for the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday after apologizing for hurting the Jewish community when he posted a link to a film with antisemitic material.

The Nets listed Irving as questionable for the game against the Memphis Grizzlies on their injury report Saturday. He has missed the last eight games.

The team suspended the point guard for a minimum of five games without pay on Nov. 3 after he refused to say he had no antisemitic beliefs when he was questioned about his since-deleted post on his Twitter page.

Irving told SNY on Saturday: “I just want to apologize deeply for all my actions throughout the time that it’s been since the post was first put up. I’ve had a lot of time to think. But my focus, initially, if I could do it over, would be to heal and repair a lot of my close relationships with my Jewish relatives, brothers and sisters.”

Irving met with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and Nets owner Joe Tsai during the suspension and both said they don’t believe he has antisemitic beliefs.

All-Star guard Ja Morant won’t play for Memphis because of a sprained left ankle he sustained Friday.

JAZZ BEAT BLAZERS 118-113 TO TAKE WESTERN CONFERENCE LEAD

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -Jordan Clarkson scored 28 points, including eight straight in the final 1:48, in the Utah Jazz’s 118-113 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night.

Malik Beasley had 29 points off the bench to help Utah take the Western Conference lead at 12-6.

“We’re proud of the way we’ve represented ourselves after 18 games,” Jazz coach Will Hardy said. “We believe we can get better. That’s our focus. Like every team, we’re not a finished product yet. That doesn’t mean we’re proud of where we are at this point, but we can’t get lost in what anybody is saying about us.”

Beasley was a force throughout the game, especially in the second quarter, where he scored 15 points.

“I think he’s understanding our system a little bit better,” Jazz coach Will Hardy said about Beasley, who made six 3-pointers. “The timing with which he’s cutting, the timing of how he is coming off screens has been really good. And his teammates have been finding him at the right moments.”

The Jazz also scored 28 points off 18 Blazers turnovers.

“A lot of it is carelessness,” Blazers coach Chauncey Billups said. “Some of it is other teams pressuring our passes and activity. Some of is unfamiliarity with each other. There’s a lot of thing put into that. But regardless of what the issue is we have to be better.”

Anfernee Simons led Portland with 23 points.

YOUNG HITS GRIFFIN FOR OT BUZZER-BEATER, HAWKS TOP RAPTORS

ATLANTA (AP) Trae Young threw a long pass to hit A.J. Griffin for a wide-open layup at the overtime buzzer and the Atlanta Hawks, after rallying late in regulation, beat the undermanned Toronto Raptors 124-122 on Saturday night.

Young had 33 points and 12 assists, De’Andre Hunter added 22 points and Clint Capela had 18 points and 14 rebounds for the Hawks.

While Young was taking the inbound pass with 3.8 seconds to go and the score tied at 122-all, Griffin had the awareness to run behind the defense and set up near the basket. It was pure basketball instinct.

Young caught a pass, took a dribble and threw the pass from just past half-court. Griffin jumped, hauled in the ball and made the shot before landing.

“I was in the right place at the right time,” Griffin said. “I had a feeling they were going to pressure up. I saw it and broke early. I said, `I’ll just sneak up behind them.’ That’s exactly what happened.”

Young hit a pair of free throws with 59 seconds to go in regulation, giving the Hawks their first lead since midway through the third quarter.

The Raptors led 108-101 with 2:36 to go in the fourth quarter. The Hawks went on a 10-run in a 90-second span to take a 111-109 lead on Young’s two free throws with 59 seconds to go.

Toronto had a great chance to win it at the end of regulation, but Scottie Barnes missed a layup and a putback attempt at the buzzer.

TIMBERWOLVES HANG ON, TOP UNDERMANNED 76ERS 112-109

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Against another short-handed team, the Timberwolves again came up big on the road.

Anthony Edwards scored 25 points, D’Angelo Russell had 19 and the Minnesota Timberwolves survived a late scare and won their third straight game, 112-109 over the undermanned Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.

“We took a lot of bad shots, I definitely did, but we got the win, though,” Edwards said of a 7-of-21 effort.

The 76ers have already played without James Harden for two weeks because of a right foot tendon strain and they added starting guard Tyrese Maxey to the injury list with a broken left foot suffered Friday. P.J. Tucker suffered an unspecified injury against the Timberwolves and Joel Embiid injured his left ankle/foot following a late-game collision with a teammate.

Embiid, the reigning NBA scoring champion, said well after the final buzzer he was still in pain and he hobbled off the dais following his press conference.

“Hopefully, somehow it feels better, but we’ll see,” Embiid said.

Maxey and Harden averaged 20-plus points on the season, and their losses left Embiid to carry the load among a lineup that in one stretch included him, Danuel House Jr., De’Anthony Melton, Shake Milton and Georges Niang.

“No one feels sorry for you. So I’m not going to feel sorry for us either,” coach Doc Rivers said. “We’ve got to find a way to win. I know that sounds nuts. But we just have to. And we’ll figure it out.”

The 76ers need more time.

Embiid had 32 points, nine rebounds and made 18 of 20 free throws. Milton had 27 points and Melton 19.

CLIPPERS HIT 21 3-POINTERS IN 119-97 ROUT OF SPURS

LOS ANGELES (AP) Paul George scored 21 points, hitting five of the Clippers’ season-high 21 3-pointers, and Los Angeles routed the slumping San Antonio Spurs 119-97 on Saturday night.

Norman Powell added a season-high 26 points off the bench and Reggie Jackson had 20 points as six Clippers scored in double figures. Powell hit five 3s and Jackson sank all four of his 3-point attempts.

“Today was the best game we’ve played all season. This is the blueprint of how we need to play,” Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said. “It was a fun game to play and a fun game to watch.”

George tweaked his calf and left after playing 15 minutes. “He’s doing OK,” Lue said.

Kawhi Leonard had 11 points in 22 minutes of his second straight start after missing 12 games because of right knee stiffness. John Wall had 15 assists, becoming the first Clippers player since Chris Paul in 2017 to have at least that many.

“I was trying to get 20, to be honest,” Wall said. “My whole career I like to pass the ball.”

Wall is coming off the bench in his first season with the Clippers and feeling no pressure to score big numbers on a team with so many offensive weapons.

“This is probably the deepest team any of us have played on,” he said. “We shouldn’t worry about who’s the leading scorer, just play the right way.”

Since starting the season 5-2, the Spurs have lost nine of 10 and four in a row. They were led by Jakob Poeltl with 20 points. Doug McDermott added 13 points and Tre Jones had 10 assists.

The Clippers led all the way, dominating from the opening tip. They took an 18-point lead in the first quarter when they shot 61% from the floor.

Los Angeles reeled off three consecutive 3-pointers – two in a row by Jackson and one by George – that pushed the lead to 16 points just before halftime.

BRUINS TIE NHL MARK FOR HOME START; BEAT BLACKHAWKS, 6-1

BOSTON (AP) David Pastrnak scored two goals as the Boston Bruins tied the NHL record for most consecutive home wins to open a season with 11 by beating the Chicago Blackhawks 6-1 on Saturday night.

Patrice Bergeron, Jake DeBrusk, Taylor Hall and David Krejci also scored, and Charlie McAvoy had four assists to help Boston equal the season-opening home mark set by the Blackhawks in 1963-64 and matched by the Florida Panthers last season.

It was the sixth straight victory for the Bruins (16-2-0). Boston hits the road for two games this week – against Tampa Bay and Florida – before returning home to host Carolina for its annual Black Friday matinee.

“It’s unfathomable that we were going to have this start,” Boston’s first-year coach Jim Montgomery said. “So we’re enjoying the ride right now, but we know our schedule is getting really hard. It’s nice to be part of the record books.”

Behind a fired-up TD Garden crowd that broke into numerous chants of “Let’s Go Bruins,” Boston jumped to a 2-0 edge early in the second period en route to matching its season-high for goals in a game.

“You can see how close everyone is in this room, how everyone plays for each other,” McAvoy said. “We’re pulling from experiences we’ve had so far. … It’s a great attitude and vibe in the room right now. We’ve just got to ride these waves.”

Playing his first game since leaving with a left knee injury from a collision with Bergeron, Bruins goalie Jeremy Swayman made 17 saves.

“It’s been great,” Bergeron said. “We’re trying to focus on what brings success right now, and be in the moment.”

Taylor Raddysh scored a power-play goal for Chicago and Petr Mrazek stopped 37 shots. The Blackhawks have lost three straight.

DEVILS BEAT SENATORS, STRETCH WINNING STREAK TO 12 GAMES

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Akira Schmid made 25 saves and the New Jersey Devils beat the Ottawa Senators 5-1 on Saturday for their 12th straight victory.

Yegor Sharangovich and Michael McLeod each had a goal and an assist, and Erik Haula, Nathan Bastian and Jesper Boqvist also scored for New Jersey. The Devils are one win away from matching the longest streak in franchise history, set Feb. 26-March 23, 2001.

The Devils jumped out to a 3-0 lead early in the second period, and then pulled away again after the Senators got on the scoreboard later in the middle period.

“We were just resilient,” Haula said. “There were a couple holes in our game, I thought, where we got a little bit comfortable and that’s when they kind of took it to us a little bit and got some chances, but overall, good for Schmid, great game from him, and 12 in a row, we’ve got to feel good about this one.”

Derick Brassard scored for the Senators. Anton Forsberg started the game but was pulled early in the second period after allowing the third goal on 18 shots. Cam Talbot finished the game allowing one goal on 17 shots.

Ottawa continued to struggle, having won just twice in its last 11 games (2-8-1). Late in the game, there was a faint chant of “Fire D.J.!” Fans have been calling for the dismissal of coach D.J. Smith the last couple of weeks.

“It’s nobody to blame but ourselves, the players,” Senators captain Brady Tkachuk said. “We just weren’t ready to play today and that’s my job to get everybody ready and I’m sick and tired of seeing all this negativity on social media and all that. It’s not one person, it’s the group in here that needs to figure it out.”

Haula opened the scoring with a power-play goal early in the first period for his first of the season. Bastian made it 2-0 late in the first, jumping on a rebound out front.

The Devils didn’t let up, making it 3-0 early in the second when Boqvist was able to grab a puck out front, putting an end to Forsberg’s afternoon.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The game Sunday in Indianapolis was supposed to be all about reunions for Philadelphia Eagles coach Nick Sirianni.

He’d get to see Frank Reich, the coach who hired him in 2018, and could trade fist bumps and high-fives with all those young playmakers he developed bonds with during his three-year stint as the Colts offensive coordinator.

Instead, Sirianni is returning to Lucas Oil Stadium brokenhearted less than two weeks after one of his close friends, Reich, was fired.

“Frank is one of the best coaches I’ve been around, one of the best men I’ve been around,” Sirianni said. “When I talk about coaches where my philosophy comes from, there are three and that’s my dad; Larry Kehres, my college coach; and Frank Reich. So you can imagine how I feel.”

Or perhaps how motivated he is to get one of the NFL’s top teams back on track following its first loss of the season last Monday night.

Much has changed since Sirianni left Indy for Philadelphia after the 2020 season. He helped the Eagles sneak into last year’s playoffs and has them atop the NFC with an 8-1 mark this year.

Indy (4-5-1), meanwhile, lost its final two games to miss the playoffs last season, and this season’s continually sluggish offense has made the Colts virtually unrecognizable – even to fans.

Since their last home game on Oct. 30, Reich has been replaced by Jeff Saturday, who went from pregame TV anvil banger to interim coach in two weeks. Sirianni’s successor as coordinator, Marcus Brady, has been fired, Parks Frazier has taken over play-calling duties and Matt Ryan has reclaimed the starting quarterback job from Sam Ehlinger.

Yet somehow, amid all the turmoil, the Colts managed to play good enough last weekend to snap a three-game losing streak.

And now they’ll be back in Indy.

“Oh man, I’m excited,” Saturday said, referring to his home debut. “You just bringing it up brings a smile to my face because I haven’t thought about it. But, man, every time I come back here, whether it was two weeks ago with (Tarik Glenn), that’s different, man. That’s home.”

Except that Sirianni won’t feel the same way.

“This game is not about my relationship with anyone in the building,” he said. “I try not to get too wrapped up in that, knowing every game is big, every game is exciting, every game has somebody that goes back to a place they coached, a place they’re from or anything like that.”

THE LAST TIME?

Ryan looked more like the former Atlanta Falcons star last week – just in time to face his hometown team. The 37-year-old quarterback grew up near Philadelphia and attended the same high school as Adam F. Goldberg, creator of ABC’s hit comedy “The Goldbergs.”

With one year left on his contract and playing with a team that’s not scheduled to face the NFC East again until 2026, this could be his last game against the Eagles.

“When I was in Atlanta, it seemed like we played them every year. I’ve played them a lot in my career and they’ve always been very good,” Ryan said. “Going there was always difficult. Growing up there, I knew kind of how passionate the fans are.”

REPLACING GOEDERT

The Eagles didn’t just lose a game or a perfect record Monday. They also lost tight end Dallas Goedert (shoulder). He was having a Pro Bowl-type season before going on injured reserve earlier this week.

With A.J. Brown playing through an ankle injury, Sirianni must find additional options for quarterback Jalen Hurts.

“How do we replace him? You can’t, right?” he said. “You have to do it by committee. You have tight ends that are there that we have a lot of faith in. Then it goes to where some of his targets go. Probably a couple will go to A.J., probably a couple go to DeVonta (Smith), and then you have backs that get intertwined in that.”

ON THE RUN

Washington won Monday’s game by forcing turnovers and controlling the ball for more than 40 minutes, two things that weren’t major factors in previous games. So after allowing 152 yards rushing on 49 carries to the Commanders, Philadelphia tried to reinforce the league’s No. 20-ranked run defense.

But with defending league rushing champ Jonathan Taylor up next, Philadelphia made two big signings this week after losing defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu. First, they signed veteran tackle Linval Joseph, then they added Ndamukong Suh on Thursday.

LINING UP

Indy’s biggest problem this season has been the offensive line, which has struggled in pass protection and clearing holes for Taylor. Last week, though, they appeared to solve the problem against the reeling Raiders. Ryan was only hit once, on a sack, and Taylor posted his first 100-yard game since Week 1.

What changed?

“It’s just accountability on all fronts,” said Saturday, a two-time All-Pro center. “Obviously, I know that position specifically and I have a lot of respect for what those guys have done. I believe it needed to be addressed and emphasized. Those guys responded tremendously.”

****INDIANA PACERS****

GAME REWIND: PACERS 114, MAGIC 113

The final offensive sequence illustrated the toughness the Indiana Pacers played with against the Orlando Magic on Saturday.

Down by a point, with 9.6 seconds left in the game, the Pacers’ Aaron Nesmith rose up from a crowd of 7-footers underneath the basket, pulled down an offensive rebound and was fouled. Nesmith then went to the line, hit both of his free throws to push himself to a career-high 19 points, and helped the Pacers (9-6) to a 114-113 victory.

The Pacers have now won four straight games and eight of the last 10 games.

During the season of giving, the Pacers have been at their best when everyone gets a piece of the pie.

Six players scored in double figures for Indiana, which was on a second leg of a back to back, like the Magic (5-12). This season, in games where the Pacers have six players scoring no fewer than 10 points, they’re now 6-0.

“I think everybody here wants to win, wants to get better and everybody plays hard,” Nesmith said. “That’s what’s really helping us win these games and closing out tight games and making comebacks. We play hard, we trust each other, we trust the work we put in practice and it has paid off.”

The Magic – missing seven players due to injury – started three players over 6-foot-10 in the game, including two players over 7-0 in Bol Bol (7-2)  and Mo Bamba (7-0). Magic guard Franz Wagner is 6-10.

Orlando made four of its first five shots off the opening tip – including 3-pointers by Jalen Suggs and Bamba – to lead the Pacers 10-1 just under two minutes in.

Point guard Tyrese Haliburton then got the Pacers’ offense on track, draining a 3-pointer, hitting a midrange jumper and finishing a contested layup at the rim to trim the deficit to 14-12 with 6:30 left in the first quarter.

An 8-0 Magic run put the visitors back up by 10 points by the 3:41-mark, but the Blue & Gold were able to again chip away, cutting it to 28-22 after Aaron Nesmith hit a trey and rookie Bennedict Mathurin drained two 3-pointers – including one leaning in at the top of the arc at the buzzer – by the end of 12 minutes.

The Pacers brought the score within a point at 35-34 with 8:23 left in the first half, but the Magic responded with a 11-2 run behind two dunks from Bamba with 4:35 on the clock.

Out of a timeout, the Pacers again got back on track going on a 9-1 run on two 3-pointers from Buddy Hield. Haliburton then at the buzzer got nothing but net on a half-court heave, but the Pacers trailed  55-51 at halftime.

At the break, Haliburton and Bamba were the only two players scoring in double-digits, both with 13 points.

The Magic shot 22-for-52 (6-for-17) and the Pacers shot 18-for 45 (8-for-22 3-point) in the first half. In the paint, the Magic outscored the Pacers 24-18.

While Hield opened the second half with a 3-pointer, the Magic strung together a 7-0 scoring streak to go up 63-54.

Like clockwork, the Pacers responded, making it a one possession game at 70-68 at the halfway mark after a trey by Jalen Smith and a fastbreak bucket from Haliburton.

From 4:08 to 2:06 in the third quarter, the fieldhouse was rocking as the Pacers went on a 10-0 run, behind two 3-pointers from Nesmith, a hook shot by Smith and alley-oop dunk from Mathurin, to take an 87-77 lead.

At the end of 24 minutes, the Pacers led 89-84 after outscoring the visitors 38-29 on 15-for-22 shooting (7-for-14 3-point) in the third quarter.

The Magic took advantage of some cold Pacers shooting midway through the fourth quarter, going on a 10-0 run on five points by Bol and a 3-pointer from R.J. Hampton, to retake the lead 101-98 with 5:33 left in the game.

After Haliburton reentered the game, the Pacers went on a 9-2 run, with five points by him and four by Turner, as the Pacers led 107-103 with 3:37 on the clock.

The teams battled back-and-forth down the stretch, including two late 3-pointers from Wagner to put the Magic back ahead, but the Pacers came up with the clutch win.

“We’re going to be a ‘do your job’ team, and don’t try to do anything that is super speculative out there,” Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle said.

On top of Nesmith’s 19 points, Haliburton had 22 points and 14 assists and Turner had 20 points and 11 rebounds. Other double-digit scorers included Hield (15), Smith (14) and Mathurin (12). Turner has now recorded a double-double in five-straight games, with six overall, while Haliburton has nine double-doubles.

Wagner topped the Magic with 29 points, Bol scored 22 and Bamba finished with 21.

From the field, the Pacers shot 41-for-90 (18-for-46 3-point) while the Magic made 39 of 91 (16-for-42 3-point) shots. The Pacers won the rebounding battle 42-41 but lost the turnover margin 15-9 after recording 11 turnovers in the first half.

In the paint the Pacers turned it around in the second half, outsourcing the Magic 42-36 by the final buzzer.

The two teams will play again Monday at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

INDIANA BEATS MICHIGAN STATE 39-31 IN DOUBLE OVERTIME TO CLAIM OLD BRASS SPITTOON

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Sometimes you find a way.

Sometimes you fight, persevere, and believe.

Oh, make history.

Welcome to the Hoosiers’ 39-31 double-overtime victory at Michigan State. It was a result that once seemed as likely as the sun setting in the east.

IU (4-7) trailed 24-7 at halftime, and then 31-14 in the third quarter.

Michigan State (5-6) was 9-0 in one-score games under head coach Mel Tucker.

It’s now 9-1.

“We stayed with it,” senior safety Jonathan Haynes told Voice of the Hoosiers Don Fischer on the post-game radio show. “Nobody gave up. We motivated each other.”

With a fierce snow burst hitting Spartan Stadium, with wind gusting and swirling to disrupt the best of offensive plans (and field-goal-kicking efficiency), with a 31-31 tie entering the second overtime period, quarterback Dexter Williams II hit two of the biggest passes of his young career. The first was for 24 yards to tight end AJ Barner to set up tailback Shaun Shivers’ 1-yard touchdown run. Williams followed with a 2-point conversion pass to Barner for a 39-31 IU lead.

The defense shut down Michigan State’s final attempt, and just like that, the Hoosiers’ seven-game losing streak was history, and the Old Brass Spittoon, symbolic of this rivalry was back in Cream & Crimson hands.

“It’s a trophy game, baby,” head coach Tom Allen told Fischer. “What a win.”

Allen told Fischer he followed trophy tradition by spitting into the spittoon.

“It’s a beautiful thing. Now we’ll fly that sucker back to Bloomington.”

For those who thought the Hoosiers had given up amid all the losing, Haynes set the record straight.

“No matter how the season went,” he told Fischer, “we stayed on the fight. We know how good this team is. We had to put it all together like today.”

Hoosier heroes were everywhere you looked.

Shivers had a 79-yard touchdown run and finished with 115 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Williams ran for a career-high 86 yards and a touchdown. Jaylin Lucas returned a kickoff 88 yards for a TD, and also had a 43-yard return. Haynes started his first career game and totaled 12 tackles and an interception.

Then there was linebacker Aaron Casey.

A battered linebacker group was without Cam Jones, Matt Hohlt, and Bradley Jennings Jr., forcing safety Bryant Fitzgerald into the position (he finished with a team-leading 14 tackles), and Haynes into a starting role. Casey willed himself to play after missing most of the practice week with an injury that left him on a scooter on Saturday morning trying to get ready. He had six tackles.

“We didn’t think he’d be able to play,” Allen said. “He gritted it out. He sucked it up.”

Michigan State (5-6) dominated with 540 total yards to IU’s 288. It had a 29-11 edge in first downs, a 90-51 advantage in plays run, a 37-23 edge in minutes of possession.

It didn’t matter.

Williams, in his first college start, completed just 2-of-7 passes for 31 yards.

It didn’t matter.

“This was an unbelievable win,” Allen told Fischer. “I’m so proud of our team. They fought so hard. They never quit believing.

“It’s been a hard season. Some guys didn’t play today, but a lot of guys did. The guys who did fought to the bitter end. It wasn’t pretty, but we bowed up when we had to bow up.”

A battered receiving group and the wintry conditions had IU pushing a previously struggling rushing game.

The result — the Hoosiers ran for 257 yards.

“The offensive line is getting better,” Allen told Fischer. “They deserve a lot of credit. They sucked it up.

“We knew we had to run to win. Michigan State knew that, too, and we were still able to do it. That was massive.”

Lucas opened the game with a 43-yard kickoff return that set up Williams’ 34-yard touchdown run for a quick 7-0 Hoosier lead.

Michigan State drove to the IU 2-yard line before the Hoosiers went into shut down mode to force a field goal and make it a 7-3, first-quarter score.

The Spartans followed with three touchdowns for that 24-7 halftime lead.

“You make halftime adjustments,” Allen told Fischer, “but it’s really about staying together and guys making plays. That’s what they did.”

Indiana’s best-possible-start to the third quarter started by forcing a Michigan State punt. Then, on its first offensive play, Shivers bolted 79 yards for a touchdown and a 24-14 score just over a minute into the second half.

The Spartans scored a touchdown to regain the 17-point advantage. Lucas broke free for his 88-yard kickoff return. Haynes’ interception set up Charles Campbell’s 40-yard field goal for a 31-24 score.

The Hoosiers got the ball back and went to ground-game work.

A much-maligned offensive line blasted Michigan State out of the way for a red zone first down. Tailback Josh Henderson showed the value of patience for a TD run and a 31-31 tie with 13 minutes left.

The Spartans missed a 22-yard field goal as time expired that would have won it. IU followed that by blocking their overtime attempt. Then Michigan State blocked Campbell’s attempt.

In the second overtime, Williams connected with Barner to set up Shivers’ TD run, then hit Barner for the conversion and a 39-31 Hoosier lead.

The defense held. Victory was secured.

Next up — Purdue (7-4).

“We know how big this game is,” Haynes told Fischer, “but we’re going to treat it like any other game, and get the job done.”

BOILERMAKERS CLOSE HOME SLATE WITH WIN OVER NORTHWESTERN

(PURDUE RELEASE)

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Purdue football team closed out its home slate at Ross-Ade Stadium on Saturday afternoon with a 17-9 win over Northwestern. The Boilermakers improved to 7-4 on the year and 5-3 in Big Ten play and kept their West Division title hopes alive.

The two clubs battled through 29-degree weather and a steady 20 mph wind as the wind chill crept into single digits.

The Boilermaker defense stood firm in the blustery conditions, allowing Northwestern to score just twice on 11 drives, forcing four three-and-outs. Jalen Graham, Kieren Douglas and Kylan Jenkins led the way with seven stops. Jenkins tallied two of Purdue’s four tackles-for-loss, while Nic Caraway and Jack Sullivan recorded Purdue’s two sacks.

Purdue turned Northwestern (1-10, 1-7) over three times with a pair of fumble recoveries and an interception. The Wildcats recorded 240 total yards and just 78 through the air, while going 6-of-16 on third down and converting 1-of-2 fourth down attempts.

Purdue held a Big Ten opponent to nine or fewer points for the fourth time in the last two seasons.

Quarterback Aidan O’Connell threw for 159 yards and two scores on 16-of-25 passing. Charlie Jones snagged six passes for 46 yards and touchdown, while PayneDurham scored once on two receptions for 30 yards.

Purdue totaled 299 yards of offense in a balanced attack of 140 yards on the ground and 159 through the air. Running back Dylan Downing carried the bulk of the load with 17 rushes for 49 yards, and Kobe Lewis added 42 yards on 11 carries.The pair stepped up after starting running back Devin Mockobee left the game early in the first quarter due to injury.

The O’Connell-to-Jones connection produced early results in the first quarter with a 15-yard catch-and-run for the game’s opening touchdown. O’Connell later gave Purdue a 14-3 lead with 4:12 to play in the second when he hit Durham for a 3-yard touchdown.

After Northwestern made a field goal on its second drive, the defense kept the Wildcats off the board on their next six possessions, three of which ended with three-and-outs. The Boilermakers forced a pair of turnovers during the stretch with a Graham interception and a Cam Allen fumble recovery forced by Lawrence Johnson.

Northwestern made it a five-point game on a two-yard touchdown run with 12:49 to play in the fourth, but Purdue’s defense forced an incomplete pass on the ensuing two-point conversion.

Mitchell Fineran split the uprights on a 26-yard kick with 7:08 left to give Purdue its final eight-point cushion.

Down just eight with less than two minutes to play, Northwestern had the ball inside Purdue territory with a 4th-and-4. Freeman stepped up in the pocket and right into the waiting grasp of Sullivan, who sealed the win with his career-high fifth sack of the year.

MR. JONES MOVING UP THE CHARTS

Charlie Jones continued his climb up several of Purdue’s season charts. Jones moved into a tie with David Bell (2021) for fourth in single-season receptions with 93. He is now 13th in single-season receiving yards with 1,056. His scoring grab was his 11th of the year, tying him with Ashley Bell (1969) and Steve Bryant (1981) for sixth on the single-year list.

****NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL****

#18 IRISH DOMINATE BOSTON COLLEGE, 44-0

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The University of Notre Dame’s 18th-ranked football team dominated the Boston College Eagles, to earn a 44-0 victory Saturday afternoon. In what was the finale of the 2022 season at Notre Dame Stadium, the Irish sprinted out to a 17-0 first quarter lead, added 20 more in the second quarter and coasted to the season’s largest margin of victory of the year to improve to 8-3.

The 44-point victory is the most in the rivalry since 1992, when the Irish won 54-7. Notre Dame improves to 18-9 against the Eagles in the series and have won nine-consecutive contests.

Drew Pyne led an offensive attack that compiled 437 total yards. He finished 13-for-25 for 156 yards through the air with one touchdown, and added four yards on the ground.

The rushing attack used six ball carries to run for 281 yards, led by a 122 yard, 15 carry performance with a touchdown from Logan Diggs. Audric Estime added 71 yards on 11 carries and scored twice. Notre Dame eclipsed 200-yards rushing for the sixth time this season, and 250-yard rushing yards for the third time on the year.

Michael Mayer led the receiving corps that saw six catch passes on the day. Mayer finished with five catches for 64 yards, bringing his career total to 2,001 yards. Matt Salerno added two catches for 20 yards and his first career touchdown. Jayden Thomas and Chris Tyree each added a pair of receptions.

Freshman Jaylen Sneed and junior linebacker JD Bertrand led the Irish defense with five tackles each. The Irish defense forced five turnovers, leading to 27 points for the offense. Freshman Benjamin Morrison picked off three BC passes, which matches a school record for interceptions in a game held by 15 players. The last to do it before Morrison was Harrison Smith in the 2010 Sun Bowl against Miami (Fla.).

On the final play of the first half, junior defensive end Isaiah Foskey set the Notre Dame career sacks record as he brought down the Boston College quarterback for an 11-yard loss. Foskey now has 25 career sacks, 9.5 during the 2022 campaign. His 25 career sacks breaks the old record of 24.5 which was held by Justin Tuck (2002-04).

How It Happened

The Irish struck first, using a season-long 51-yard rush from Diggs on the game’s opening play to put the Irish in Eagle territory. Notre Dame capitalized with a 26-yard field goal to go up 3-0 early.

Morrison’s first interception set the Irish up in the red zone. The Irish used five plays to move the 20 yards needed to score on a one-yard plunge from Diggs. Notre Dame led 10-0, 4:55 into the contest.

After forcing a Boston College punt, the Irish took over on its own 19. Pyne found Deion Colzie on a third and eight for a gain of 23 yards to move the Irish into Eagle territory. Pyne found Diggs up the right sideline for another gain of 28 to move into the redzone. The Irish continued the air assault as Pyne found Salerno in the left flat for a touchdown. Salerno’s first of his career to extend the lead to 17-0 with 4:15 remaining in the first quarter.

Morrison’s third interception halted a promising Eagle drive deep into Notre Dame territory late in the second quarter. The Irish marched 57 yards on 10 plays to set up a 41-yard field goal from Blake Grupe. Grupe’s kick was true and the Irish led 20-0, with less than a minute off the clock in the second quarter.

The Irish defense turned Boston College over for the third time of the first half as this time it was Jack Kiser with a sack fumble that was recovered by Isaiah Foskey. Notre Dame moved 15 yards to set up a 46-yard kick from Grupe to extend the lead to 23-0.

Another Boston College fumble set the Irish up in Eagle territory. Diggs ran twice for 29 yards to put the Irish down inside the 15. Estime finished the drive with a seven-yard touchdown run, scoring his 10th rushing touchdown of the season with 3:04 remaining in the first half.

Notre Dame wasn’t finished with its first half work as it forced a punt with just over two minutes remaining. Tyree opened the drive with a 26 yard gain up the middle, and closed the drive with a 12-yard touchdown run. Grupe’s kick was good and the Irish went into halftime with its largest lead of the season going into halftime, up 37-0.

The Irish added a score on its first possession of the second half, marching 47 yards on eight plays as Estime walked in off left tackle for the six-yard score.

Up Next

The Irish close the regular season next weekend at the Los Angeles Coliseum as Notre Dame will take on the USC Trojans. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. on ABC.

****IUPUI MEN’S BASKETBALL****

JAGUARS RUN PAST FRANKLIN COLLEGE, 59-45

INDIANAPOLIS – The IUPUI basketball team raced past visiting Franklin College inside Indiana Farmers Coliseum in its 2022-23 home opener on Saturday (Nov. 19). Armon Jarrard had 11 points and blocked a pair of shots and Chris Osten finished with 10 points and seven boards in just 18 minutes. Sophomore Jlynn Counter closed with eight points, seven boards and six assists.

IUPUI (1-3) put the defensive clamps on Franklin, limiting them to just 32.2 percent from the floor and 5-of-29 (17.2 percent) from three-point range. IUPUI closed the game at 43 percent.

“It wasn’t pretty, but these guys are still trying to figure things out and figuring out what it takes to win basketball games,” head coach Matt Crenshaw said. “After a slow start, I thought we got going defensively and that led to us getting out in transition and getting some easy ones.

“It’s plays like that that get the crowd into it and give us some energy. I liked that we strung together some (defensive) stops and built a lead and took care of business in the second half.”

IUPUI trailed 15-6 in early going, but outscored Franklin 53-30 over the final 30 minutes, using length and athleticism to sneak out in transition. 

IUPUI shot just 39 percent from the floor in the opening half and had to warm up late to reach that level. The early degree of difficulty of the IUPUI attempts saw the Jaguars fall into the 15-6 hole before Amhad Jarrard leaked out for a two-handed dunk. IUPUI closed the half, outscoring Franklin 16-4 over the final eight-plus minutes, holding the Grizzlies to just 2-of-9 shooting with four turnovers.

At the offensive end, IUPUI scored 20 of its 22 first half points in the paint with the other two coming from Jonah Carrasco after he was fouled in close.

The Jags reeled off a 10-0 run early in the second half to push the lead out to 13, capped by a Bryce Monroe corner three. It marked Monroe’s lone three points of his IUPUI debut after he missed the opening three contests of the season.

Carrasco finished with seven points and five boards and Daylan Hamilton closed with four points and four rebounds. Trey Flatt paced Franklin with eight points.

The Jaguars will return to action on Wednesday, Nov. 23 when they begin play at the Big Easy Classic, hosted by the University of New Orleans. IUPUI is slated to face Denver (Nov. 23), host UNO (Nov. 24) and The Citadel (Nov. 25) over a span of three days.

COACH, SETTER OF THE YEAR HIGHLIGHT VOLLEYBALL’S MAC AWARDS

CLEVELAND, Ohio – – The Ball State women’s volleyball program was heavily rewarded for its second consecutive Mid-American Conference regular season title, claiming four All-MAC honors, MAC Setter of the Year, and MAC Coach of the Year.

The awards were voted on by the league’s 12 head coaches and announced Saturday morning (Nov. 19) by the conference office in advance of the MAC Volleyball Championship which will be played Nov. 20-22 inside Worthen Arena. The MAC postseason awards are based solely on performance in league play.

Highlighting the list for Ball State is sophomore setter Megan Wielonski who became just the second player in program history to earn MAC Setter of the Year honors, joining 2018 honoree Amber Seamen. Wielonski, the 2021 MAC Freshman of the Year, was named to the All-MAC First Team for the second consecutive season.

Joining Wielonski on the All-MAC First Team were senior middle Marie Plitt and junior outside Cait Snyder. In addition, senior opposite Natalie Mitchem earned All-MAC Second Team accolades. Plitt also earns first team honor for the second straight season, while Snyder is a first-time honoree, and Mitchem was named to the first team a year ago.

The four All-MAC awards raise Ball State’s all-time total to 110 selections, including 58 first team nods. Both totals rank second all-time in MAC history.

In addition, Ball State women’s volleyball head coach Kelli Miller Phillips was named the MAC Coach of the Year for the second straight season after leading the program to a 15-3 league mark and the program’s 10th MAC regular season title. Ball State also collected its fifth MAC West Division Championship in Phillips’ seven seasons at the helm.

– The Cardinals and the Fighting Irish will face off for the first time since the 1981-82 season. Ball State lost that contest to Notre Dame, 57-60, but the Cardinals lead the all-time series record, 2-1.

– Ball State is coming off of an impressive win over in-state rival Butler Thursday night in Worthen Arena. The Cardinals defeated the Bulldogs, 84-68. For the game, Ball State had four players in double figures with sophomore Ally Becki leading the charge with 18 points, including 5-of-8 shooting from the field and a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe. Redshirt senior Anna Clephane scored in double digits for the third-straight game after registering 15 points on the night. Graduate senior Thelma Dis Agustsdottir and sophomore Madelyn Bischoff ended the night with 12 points apiece.

– Notre Dame will be the fourth school from the state of Indiana that the Cardinals will face this season. Ball State has already played IU East (Nov. 14) and Butler (Nov. 17) and is set to host IUPUI Thursday, Dec. 8. So far, the Cardinals are 2-0 against schools from Indiana.

– The Fighting Irish look to remain undefeated Sunday against the Cardinals after starting the season off with a 3-0 record after posting victories against fellow Mid-American Conference member Northern Illinois (88-48), California (90-79) and Northwestern (92-58).

– Prior to the start of the Ball State-Notre Dame showdown, the Irish community will take a few moments to honor Katryna Gaither, who will be inducted into the Notre Dame Ring of Honor.

I’m A Survivor:

Both redshirt senior Anna Clephane and senior Estel Puiggros have suffered season-ending injuries over their career at Ball State. But both have worked hard to come back stronger than ever. Clephane currently leads the team in scoring averaging 16.3 points per contest. She scored 12 points at Tennessee Tech (Nov. 7), 22 points versus IU East (Nov. 14) and 15 points against Butler (Nov. 17). Puiggros finally made her way back onto the court against IU East playing just over four minutes and managed to score her first basketball of the season. Clephane currently has 826 points for her career and needs 174 to reach 1,000 career points.

Second Half Cardinals:

Although the Cardinals lost in their season opener the stats proved that they could be a second half team this season. Ball State outscored Tennessee Tech 39-29 in the second half of Monday’s games. The Cardinals best quarter was the fourth period when Ball State outpaced Tennessee Tech, 16-9. The Cardinals also won the rebounding category over the Golden Eagles, 48-28. Same scenario and different game against Butler Thursday in Worthen Arena. The Cardinals were trailing at the half but outscored the Bulldogs 52-35 in the second half to earn the 84-68 victory over their rival.

Next Game:

After tonight’s contest the Cardinals will make their way out west where they will play two games in Utah. Ball State will face Utah State Wednesday, Nov. 23 at 4 pm ET and will then close out the Thanksgiving break at BYU Saturday at 6 pm ET. Ball State has faced Utah State only once, winning that game 81-55 last year in Worthen Arena and it will be the first-ever meeting between BYU and BSU.

****INDIANA STATE WOMEN’S BASKETBALL****

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – Indiana State hits the road for the first time this season when it heads to West Lafayette to take on Purdue Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. The game will be carried on BTN+.

Last Time Out

Anna McKendree scored a game-high 23 points and Natalia Lalic added a career-high 22 off the bench, leading Indiana State past visiting Central Michigan, 84-71, inside Hulman Center.

Del’Janae Williams also finished in double-figures with 12 points for the Sycamores, who led by as many as 28. Indiana State’s defense forced 23 Central Michigan turnovers and had 17 steals.

Central Michigan led for most of the first quarter, but Indiana State took control in the second with a 13-2 run to close the half and never looked back. The Sycamores caught fire from behind the arc in the middle quarters, going 7-for-10 from distance across the second and third quarters to build a 68-48 lead through the first 30 minutes. Indiana State’s defense often led to offense and the Trees’ ability to push the ball up the court in transition gave Central Michigan fits, allowing the Sycamores to win their second straight game.

Hot Hand

Indiana State guard Anna McKendree has led the way for the Sycamore offense through the first two games of the season, producing her two best games in an Indiana State uniform.

McKendree led all players in scoring in both games, starting with a 19-point, six-rebound performance against Saint Louis. She followed that with 23 points and three assists against Central Michigan.

Entering the weekend, McKendree leads the Missouri Valley Conference in scoring and is the only player in the conference averaging more than 20 points per game (21.0). Known for her ability to shoot from distance, McKendree has showcased an ability to score from all levels. She has made 61.5 percent of her shots from the field (16-26) and 60 percent of her 3-point attempts through the first two games.

Sharpshooters

After ranking in the middle of the pack in the Missouri Valley Conference last season in 3-point percentage, Indiana State has found success from distance in the first two games of the 2022-23 season.

As a team, the Sycamores have knocked down 47.4 percent of their attempts from behind the arc through the first two games (18-38). Indiana State ranks first in the Missouri Valley Conference and third in Division I in 3-point percentage.

Anna McKendree leads the way for the Sycamores from deep, hitting six of her 10 3-point attempts this season (60.0 percent). Natalia Lalic (5-for-9, 55.6 percent) and Del’Janae Williams (5-for-10, 50.0 percent) have also made at least half of their 3-point attempts this season for the Blue and White.

Second Chances

Indiana State has taken full advantage of extra opportunities on the offensive end this season. The Sycamores have grabbed 28 offensive rebounds through the first two games this season, with 20 of those coming in the season-opening win over Saint Louis.

Mya Glanton leads Indiana State with five offensive rebounds, accounting for half of her season rebounding total. Chelsea Cain and Hattie Westerfeld each have four offensive rebounds, while Adrian Folks and Lily Niebuhr have two boards apiece on the offensive glass.

Not only have the Sycamores extended possessions with offensive rebounds, they have converted those extra opportunities as well. Indiana State is averaging 16.5 second chance points per game this season, scoring 14 second chance points against Saint Louis and 19 against Central Michigan.

Purdue at a Glance

Purdue enters Sunday’s game at 3-0 following wins over Marshall, Murray State and SIU Edwardsville to open the season. The Boilermakers are coming off a season which saw them win 17 games, a 10-win improvement from the 2020-21 campaign, and reach the second round of the WNIT.

Six different Boilermakers are averaging double-figure scoring through the first three games, led by former Bradley guard Lasha Petree leading the way at 17.7 points per game. Abbey Ellis (17.0), Caitlyn Harper (16.3), Madison Layden (10.3), Jeanae Terry (10.3) and Jayla Smith (5.3) are also averaging double-figures, with Purdue averaging 87.7 points per game.

Head coach Katie Gearlds, a Purdue alum, is in her second season and enters with a 20-15 record as the Boilermakers’ head coach. Gearlds previously spent 10 seasons as the head coach at Marian (Ind.), winning back-to-back NAIA National Championships in 2016 and 2017.

Gearlds does have a connection to Indiana State, albeit in an unconventional way. She was the head women’s basketball coach at Marian at the same time that current Indiana State head volleyball coach Ashlee Pritchard rebuilt the Knights into an NAIA power.

Series History Against Purdue

Indiana State and Purdue have previously met 27 times, with the Sycamores holding a 17-10 advantage in the all-time series. Despite the close proximity between the schools, the Sycamores and Boilermakers have not squared off since the 1999-00 season.

Last Game Against Purdue (Dec. 4, 1999)

Three Sycamores scored in double-figures led by April Kirby with 16, but Purdue narrowly edged past Indiana State 69-67 at the Big Four Classic in Bloomington.

Indiana State got out to a strong start and led by double-digits at the half (42-32) but Purdue outscored the Sycamores 37-25 over the final 20 minutes. The Sycamores led by double-digits for large stretches of the second half before Purdue staged its comeback to win.

Kourtney Mennen (11) and Kiwana Battle (10) also finished in double-figures for the Blue and White. Indiana State had six different players score at least seven points.

Up Next

Indiana State returns to the friendly confines of Hulman Center to face Ohio Saturday, Nov.26 at 1 p.m.

****EVANSVILLE WOMEN’S BASKETBALL****

THREE FINISH IN DOUBLE-FIGURES AS ACES FALL AT ILLINOIS

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. – An efficient Illinois offense was too much for the University of Evansville women’s basketball team to overcome in the Aces 93-54 loss to the Illini on Saturday afternoon in Champaign, Ill.

Continuing to score in double-figures this season, fifth-year guard A’Niah Griffin led Evansville on the day, recording 15 points on 7-13 shooting to power UE. Also finishing in double-digits were senior guard/forward Abby Feit with 13 points and five rebounds and fifth-year guard Myia Clark with an 11-point performance. Genesis Bryant led the way for Illinois, pouring-in 19 points off the bench for the Illini.

A quick start for the home side earned an 8-0 lead for the Illini. Myia Clark delivered much of Evansville’s early offense, scoring four points in the opening quarter as the Aces shot just 18.8% (3-16) from the field, while Illinois hit 10 of their 20 first-quarter shots, opening a 24-6 lead on Evansville.

The hot-shooting for Illinois continued in the second period as the Illini went 11-of-16 (68.8%) from the field. A lead that reached as large as 33 in the second was chipped away by the Aces in the final moments of the opening half. A quick four-straight points as the half came to a close got the Aces back within 29 at 50-21 at the break.

Evansville’s offense was improved in the second half, falling just short of 40% from the field in the second 20 minutes. Although UE’s second-half shooting saw a nearly 20% improvement over the first half, Illinois continued to shoot at a high clip, hitting 16 of its 32 second-half attempts. After three points in the first half, Feit put together a strong second-half performance, scoring 10 of her 13 points in the second half. Coming off the bench to provide a spark again for the Aces for the third-straight game was freshman guard Kynidi Mason Striverson, who had four points and a pair of rebounds for UE in 13 minutes. Griffin also added to the Aces effort in the second half, scoring five points in the third and four more in the fourth as Illinois captured the 93-54 win.

UE gets some time away from competition over the Thanksgiving holiday before returning to the court at Meeks Family Fieldhouse against Miami (Ohio) at 1 PM on Saturday, November 26th in Evansville.

CARDONA, RUFF AND VAZQUEZ EARN MVC RECOGNITION

ST. LOUIS – Giulia Cardona, Kora Ruff and Alondra Vazquez each received Missouri Valley Conference postseason honors as the league announced its All-Conference squads on Saturday.

Cardona and Vazquez were named to the All-MVC First Team while Kora Ruff earned a spot on the All-Freshman squad.

Alondra Vazquez was named to the All-MVC First Team for the third consecutive season.  She was also an All-Freshman honoree in 2018.  Vazquez is set to complete a stellar career that saw her break the Purple Aces career kills record.  The 5-time MVC Player of the Week in her career currently has 1,864 kills, which is 4th-best in MVC history.

She led the MVC in kills once again with an average of 4.75 per set.  In her time at Evansville, Vazquez has accumulated 5,351 attacks, which set the program record and will finish second in the league record books.

Giulia Cardona joins Vazquez on the First Team.  The 2021 MVC Freshman of the Year was named to the All-MVC Second Team last season.  Her 24-kill performance against Indiana State saw her break the Evansville single season kills record.  Currently sitting with 508, Cardona passed Vazquez’ mark of 494 versus the Sycamores.

The top effort for Cardona saw her register 25 kills at Southern Illinois.  Her average of 4.23 kills per set put her second in the Valley, trailing only Vazquez.

Kora Ruff picked up a spot on the All-Freshman squad.  With 1,232 assists in 2022, she ranks fourth in the nation and second among all freshmen nationally.  With 10.27 helpers per frame, Ruff is 4th in the league.  As the season has wound down, Ruff has been at her best.  Over the last 13 matches, Ruff has recorded an average of 11.28 assists.

Ruff has reached the 50-assist mark in a match on five occasions with her top total of 58 coming in a win over Missouri State.  Defensively, Ruff has notched at least five digs in 29 out of UE’s 32 contests.

****SOUTHERN INDIANA WOMEN’S BASKETBALL****

SHAFFORD HAS STANDOUT GAME, USI FALLS TO BGSU

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – University of Southern Indiana Women’s Basketball received a standout performance on Saturday from sophomore guard Vanessa Shafford (Linton, Indiana), who picked up her first career double-double, but the visiting Bowling Green State University Falcons came away with a 100-74 win against the Screaming Eagles.

Shafford set new career highs with 21 points and 11 rebounds for her first career double-double game to lead Southern Indiana. It was the first 20-10 game for a USI player since Imani Guy had 24 points and 12 rebounds in a 74-47 home win over the University of Illinois Springfield on February 16, 2019. Shafford was also a perfect 5-5 from distance Saturday, tying a USI single-game record for the best three-point percentage in a minimum of five attempts. The previous mark was set by Taylor Stephenson, who also went 5-5 against Georgia Southwestern on November 10, 2012.

Shafford got off to a solid start for USI, scoring the team’s first five points. Bowling Green State also started well, sharing the basketball, and getting multiple players in the scoring column early. The Falcons led 11-9 through the midway point of the first quarter. With 1:15 left in the first, senior forward Hannah Haithcock (Washington Courthouse, Ohio) scored on an entry pass inside to pull USI within two, 14-12. Trips to the charity stripe late in the quarter gave the Falcons a 17-12 lead after one.

Early in the second period, BGSU built a 19-14 lead, but USI’s graduate forward Ashlynn Brown (Perrysburg, Ohio) stepped up and answered with a deep three-pointer to make the score 19-17. While fouls started to stack up for USI later in the second, the Screaming Eagles persevered through the foul calls, as Shafford drained her second triple of the game to bring USI back within five, 25-20, and 6:27 left in the second. A little over a minute later, Shafford connected on another three to make it 27-23 BGSU. Then Bowling Green State found its touch from beyond the arc, hitting six of their seven first-half threes inside the last five minutes of the second quarter. The hot shooting from the Falcons extended their lead to 51-32 at the intermission.

For USI in the first half, Shafford led the team with 11 points, nailing all three attempts from outside the perimeter. Haithcock provided a strong presence off the bench in the first half, scoring 10 points with four rebounds.

Out of the halftime locker room, Bowling Green State continued to shoot well from downtown, especially senior guard Morgan Sharps. Coming into the game with five makes out of 24 attempts from three, Sharps made three triples in the first half and made three more right away in the early minutes of the third quarter. Her third triple of the third period gave BGSU a 64-40 lead at the 6:51 mark. A minute later, Shafford cashed in on her fourth three of the game for USI and surpassed her previous career high of 16. Before the end of the third frame, Haithcock made a pair of layups, and senior forward Tara Robbe (Wildwood, Missouri) tallied seven points in the third period. The Falcons led 75-55 heading into the fourth quarter.

Within the first minute of the fourth, Shafford put the basketball through the bottom of the net for the fifth time from outside the arc. Additionally, Haithcock scored three more buckets of her own, giving her 21 points with 6:39 left in the fourth. Meanwhile, Bowling Green State continued to sustain its sizable lead, 90-67, halfway through the fourth quarter. Screaming Eagles’ sophomore guard Takiya Howard (Chicago, Illinois) recorded five points in the back half of the fourth before the final horn sounded.

Shafford and Haithcock led USI with 21 points each. Overall, Shafford hit 8-12 from the floor and added five assists. Haithcock was 9-17 from the field and pulled down five rebounds. Junior forward Meredith Raley (Haubstadt, Indiana) finished in double figures with 10 points in her first start of the season. Collectively, USI was 28-62 for 45.2 percent from the field, 6-18 for 33 percent from three, and 12-17 for 70.6 percent from the line. USI outrebounded BGSU 40-39 and totaled 37 bench points.

For Bowling Green State, Sharps led the Falcons with 26 points, as seven of her nine total makes were from beyond the arc. BGSU had three others score in double digits. The Falcons shot 34-70 for 48.6 percent overall, 14-29 for 48.3 percent from three, and 18-29 for 62.1 percent from the stripe. Bowling Green State, projected third in the Mid-American Conference preseason poll, was receiving votes and would be #26 in this last week’s CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Top-25 poll.

The Screaming Eagles will conclude their November home schedule next Wednesday before Thanksgiving for a 1 p.m., midday game against the Bethel University Pilots.

****VALPO FOOTBALL****

FOOTBALL RECOGNIZES SENIORS DURING FRIGID FINALE

The Valparaiso University football program recognized 24 seniors prior to Saturday’s season finale, a 24-0 setback to visiting Drake at Brown Field. The game was played in less than ideal conditions as frigid temperatures and sporadic snowfall created a challenging environment. Valpo finished the season with a .500 record in Pioneer Football League play, the third straight season that the team has finished .500 or better in league action.

How It Happened

The first scoring of the game came on a Drake 80-yard touchdown pass with 4:39 left in the first quarter.

The Bulldogs took over on an interception and turned that into points, converting a 21-yard field goal with 14:16 left in the second quarter.

Drake took over at the Valpo 33 with 5:11 left in the second quarter and needed just one play to break off a 33-yard TD run to make it 17-0.

The two teams exchanged punts early in the second half, then Valpo’s 34-yard field goal try was blocked with 1:27 left in the third.

Drake capitalized on a turnover on a muffed punt return with a six-play, 39-yard TD drive that culminated with an 18-yard scoring pass to make it 24-0 with 10:59 to play. That stood as the game’s final score.

Inside the Game

Running back Aaron Dawson (Westbury, N.Y. / W.T. Clarke [Central Connecticut]) had 33 yards on 19 attempts in the season finale, finishing second on the program’s single-season rushing list. He finished the season with 1,187 yards, behind only Jeff Horton’s 2005 program record of 1,358. Dawson also finished tied for third in single-season program history with 10 rushing touchdowns.

Dawson had a team-high six catches for 36 yards, while Matt Ross (Naperville, Ill. / Montini Catholic [Eastern Illinois]) paced the squad in receiving yards with 66 on five grabs.

Although Saturday’s game did not go as hoped, Valpo had numerous team feats this season, including a program record for Pioneer Football League road wins, the team’s highest league road win total since 1962, four PFL wins for the third straight year and just the fourth time ever and a .500 or better record in PFL play for the third straight season for the first time since 1998-2000.

Redshirt freshman Jake Birmingham (River Forest, Ill. / Oak Park and River Forest) posted 11 tackles including eight solos, his third straight double-figure tackle output. Sam Hafner (Green Bay, Wis. / De Pere) added seven stops.

Quarterback Michael Appel Jr. (Springboro, Ohio / Springboro) went 18-of-39 for 172 yards.

The Beacons finished the season with a team completion percentage of 59.9. That ranks third in single-season program history behind 2012 (62.1) and 2013 (61.6).

Punter Evan Matthes (Reston, Va. / South Lakes [West Virginia]) averaged 40.5 yards per punt on six attempts, pinning three inside the 20 including one that was downed at the 1-yard line. His longest kick of the day traveled 46 yards.

The 26-degree game time temperature was the coldest in a Valpo game in over 15 years. Previously, the coldest during that stretch was 28 degrees on Nov. 22, 2008. Coincidentally, that 2008 game was also a shutout loss to Drake, that one by a 32-0 score.

****VALPO VOLLEYBALL****

HICKEY EARNS PAIR OF POSTSEASON HONORS

One of the nation’s most prolific liberos, Valpo volleyball freshman Emma Hickey (Granger, Ind./Penn) picked up a pair of honors Saturday as the Missouri Valley Conference unveiled its postseason awards. Hickey earned a spot both on the All-MVC Second Team and the MVC All-Freshman Team.

Hickey concluded the regular season atop the Valley in digs both overall (5.73/set) and in MVC-only play (6.00/set). In the regular season finale against UIC, Hickey surpassed Rylee Cookerly for both Valpo and MVC freshman records for digs in a season, as she enters the MVC Championship with 687 digs this year – a mark which ranks fifth in Valpo history overall and 10th in MVC history overall.

The rookie posted consistent dig totals throughout Valley play, tallying at least 14 in every match and hitting the 20-dig mark in 15 of 18 matches – highlighted by a 42-dig performance against Bradley, one off Valpo’s single-match record and the highest dig total by a Valley player in the last two seasons.

Hickey’s gaudy digs average of 5.73 digs/set is good for fourth nationally, while her 687 total digs are third-most in the nation. No other Division I freshman is within 200 digs of Hickey’s total this season, while only one other freshman ranks among the nation’s top-60 in digs/set this year. With at least one match remaining, Hickey already ranks sixth among D-I freshmen in total digs during their rookie year over the last 12 seasons, just 10 away from third.

****U OF INDY WOMEN’S BASKETBALL****

HOUNDS STEAL ROAD VICTORY OVER NORTHWOOD

MIDLAND, Mich. – The UIndy women’s basketball team weathered a fourth quarter comeback by the Northwood Timberwolves and walked out of the Bennett Sports Center with a 74-71 road victory. The Hounds improve to 2-2 on the season while the Timberwolves fall to 2-2.

Sadie Hill once again led the Greyhounds in scoring with 17 points on her 7-of-12 effort from the field. Right behind, Lauren With (15) and Elana Wells (11) also scored in double figures. Idalis Ortiz led the team with seven rebounds while Wells dished out a team-leading six assists.

HOW IT HAPPENED

Much like Wednesday night against Hillsdale, UIndy found itself trailing early on. Northwood jumped out to an early 11-4 lead halfway through the first quarter and seemed to have the momentum in its favor. Despite this, the Hounds held strong and battled the home team to a 22-22 tie heading into the second quarter. A little later, the Greyhounds would break through in the second quarter as they executed a favorable 9-0 scoring run that lasted over four minutes which spiraled into a nine point lead for UIndy at the half.

The Hounds held steady out of the break and latched on to a 12 point lead with a little over a minute remaining in the third. However, a buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the quarter by the Timberwolves was the catalyst for Northwood in climbing back in the contest.

NU tied things up halfway through the final quarter and battled the Greyhounds all the way to the final buzzer in front of its home crowd. However, a huge three-point play by Hill with just under a minute left and a Mya Scheidt offensive rebound off a missed free throw with just second remaining sealed UIndy the road victory.

-The Hounds shot 47.5 percent from the field (29-61) while the Timberwolves were at 37.1 percent (26-70).

The trio of Harnoor Dosanjh (129th, 34:06.7), Nico Barrett (135th, 34:14.8), and Alex Freeman (153rd, 35:04.5) rounded out the top-seven finishers for UIndy.

WOMEN’S RECAP

Led by Spencer’s 19th place finish, the next Greyhound behind her was Brianna Lawson in 47th at a time of 22:55.0.

LANGKABEL’S SEASON-HIGH GUIDES MARIAN TO CROSSROADS LEAGUE WIN AT TAYLOR 87-67

UPLAND, Ind. – The Marian men’s basketball team opened up Crossroads League play in dominating fashion, downing Taylor 87-67 Saturday afternoon inside Odle Arena. With the win, the Knights move to 6-0 overall and 1-0 in conference play.

Marian jumped out to the 12-5 lead to start the game after Taeshon Cherry knocked down the jumper. Taylor responded with a pair of threes to get within one, but the first half was all Marian in this one as they never let go of their lead.

Nolan Foster and Brody Whitaker each canned a jumper to put their team back up five, but a pair of free throws by the Trojans cut the Knights’ lead back to 16-13. With a little over halfway remaining in the first half, Hayden Langkabel cashed in a three to fuel a 10-2 run that would extend the Marian lead to 12 points. TU’s Jason Hubbard hit two free throws to end the run before the Marian offense would strike back on a Josh Bryan three.

Taylor tried to scrape down the lead to close out the half, but the offense put together by the Knights proved to be too much as the Marian lead grew to 47-24 with 1:56 left to play in the half after Bryan swished in his second triple of the half. Even with the Trojans scoring the last two points of the half, it was the Knights having the 47-26 advantage at halftime.

Cherry got things started for Marian as he hit the first basket of the second half, before TU had a quick answer with a three on the next play. The first five minutes of the second half was a lot of back and forth between the two teams until Taylor went on an 11-0 run led behind Hubbard’s three triples. Luke Heady put a stop to run with a good jumper of his own, but it was the Trojans taking the momentum and cutting the Marian lead to single digits at 62-53.

Marian found their groove again as Langkabel put one in from three to top off a 15-5 run and take the 20-point lead at 83-63 with 2:16 left to play. With a 20-point lead at hand and under two minutes to play, the Knights were able to hold of the Trojans with ease to win 87-67.

The Knights shot a hot 56.1% from the field and 36% from three, with four players scoring in double figures. Langkabel led all scorers with 24 points, while Cherry added 15 points and Harvey had 14 points to go along with six assists. Bryan had 10 points, with Foster adding eight points and five rebounds. Gohmann pulled down a game-high nine rebounds to add to his seven points.

Marian will return to action on Tuesday as they travel to Spring Arbor for a 6 PM tip.

MARIAN DEMOLISHES ST. XAVIER 41-7 IN NAIA FCS FIRST ROUND

INDIANAPOLIS – Backed by a relentless defense that intercepted four passes and a lethal quarterback-receiver tandem in Zach Bundalo and Ben Stevens, the Marian football team flattened their rival St. Xavier 41-7 in the NAIA FCS First Round.

Marian’s defense came out in full force to open the game, forcing three punts which included a pair of three and outs on their opening three series. Marian’s offense was unable to get started on their first two series of the afternoon, but on their third drive a pass from Zach Bundalo to Jacob Pressler moved the chains and captured momentum. A pair of penaltied would result in the ball moving out of the red zone, but Marian finished the drive with points, as Bundalo hit Ben Stevens on a 26-yard touchdown pass to give Marian a 7-0 lead.

A sack from Deon Pettiford on the final series of the opening quarter would force a fourth punt from the Cougars to start the second, but Marian faltered moving across the midfield stripe. Forced to punt for a third time, St. Xavier dialed up the pressure and blocked a Taylor Soper punt, giving the Cougars their best field position of the afternoon. St. Xavier marched eight plays and covered 41 yards, converting on fourth down as Amari Venerable would tie the game at 7-7.

Jalen Jennings had an immediate answer as he returned the kickoff after the Cougar score 95 yards for a touchdown, but the scored was nullified after Marian was flagged for a blindside block. Marian would go three and out despite the good field position from the return, and after Pressler moved the Knights deep into Cougar territory with a pair of catches, a fumble ended a promising series.

St. Xavier took over on their own 10 with 1:55 to play after the fumble, but Stuart Ross made a costly mistake that gave Marian a scoring chance, throwing an interception directly to Nate Frey. Frey returned the ball to the four yard line, and three plays later Bundalo found Stevens for their second scoring connection of the game on a two-yard strike. A Tyler Majors sack and Jake Paris tackle would halt St. Xavier on their final series, ending the half with a 14-7 lead.

The punt units for both teams were busy to start the second half, as Soper punted twice pinning the Cougars inside their on 15, while St. Xavier punted to the Knights after their first series of the half. Soper’s second punt pinned the Cougars at their four, and Marian bounced on the defensive field position as Logan Blake jumped a shallow pass and returned his second interception of the season for a touchdown. The 21-7 lead quickly grew to three scores, as a defensive stand allowed Bundalo to go to work, completing four passes to Stevens, ending the series on a 35-yard touchdown pass.

Just two plays after the Stevens score, Peyton Trexler put the nail in the coffin, snaring an interception off of Ross and returning the pick 33 yards for his second career touchdown. Trexler’s pick-six gave Marian a 34-7 lead after three quarters, and in the fourth quarter the first career interception from Alex Griffith set up Marian for one final score, with Stevens scoring his fourth touchdown of the game with 7:12 remaining in the game. Bundalo’s 22-yard touchdown pass put Marian on top 41-7, which stood as the final score as the defense made two final stops to advance Marian in the playoffs.

Bundalo led the Knights through the air with 207 yards on 14 completions, sending 10 of his passes to Stevens for 157 yards and four touchdowns. Pressler had three catches for 46 yards in the win, gaining a first down on each catch. Baron Huebler rushed for 53 yards on 18 carries. Both Bundalo and Stevens were named the Co-Offensive Players of the Game following the contest.

On defense, the Knights held St. Xavier to 155 total yards of offense, sacking the Cougars six times while grabbing three interceptions. Paris had six total tackles to lead the team, while Majors and Deon Pettiford each had 1.5 sacks. Dakari Kenney and Tyler Bukur each four solo tackles and one sack in the win, and Logan Blake had one sack to go with his pick-six, as the senior earned Defensive Player of the Game honors.

Marian will advance to the NAIA Quarterfinals following the win, and will travel to Orange City, Iowa, for the second consecutive year as they will take on No. 3 Northwestern. The rematch from one season ago will kickoff at 1 p.m. ET.

KNIGHTS WIN IN FOUR SETS OVER PARK-GILBERT TO ADVANCE TO NAIA FINAL SITE

INDIANAPOLIS – The Marian volleyball team won a tough four-set match Saturday night in the NAIA Opening Round, as the Knights took a four-set win over Park University – Gilbert. The 3-1 victory over the Buccaneers gives Marian a 24-6 overall record as they advance in the NAIA National Tournament.

The Knights got off to a lightning start against Park, taking advantage of poor defense as they jumped out to a quick 7-2 lead. Park would rally back within a point of Marian using a 4-0 run, but the home team was able to get back in system using a pair of Skyler Van Note kills. A 3-0 run created by Jaymison Summers and Jai-Lyn Norwood drove the score to five at 19-14, allowing Marian chip was to their 25-20 victory. Gianna Feld’s second service ace of the game helped lead Marian to the opening set victory.

In the second set, Park showed life and battled back and forth with Marian through the opening 16 rallies. A 4-0 run for the Buccaneers led by a pair of Marian errors would force Marian to use a timeout, but the Knights responded out of the break with a 7-3 clip to tie the score again. Another Marian run allowed them pull in front 20-18, however they could not hold their lead as Park rallied to tie at 24. Park forced set point twice, and a pair of errors would tie the set at 1-1 following the 28-26 Buccaneer win.

After falling behind to start the third set, Marian came to life trailing 15-13 as Van Note’s third kill in the set jumped her team on a run. A block from the senior and Averi Lanman kept momentum going with the Knights, and four consecutive Buccaneer attack errors pushed Marian in front 19-16. Two of the attack errors came on Marian blocks by Norwood and Madison Brooks, and after a timeout, the Knights managed two more blocks as Lanman and Brooks smothered the attack. Norwood put the set away after the 7-0 run gave Marian life, winning 25-19.

The Knights jumped out to an early 4-1 lead in the fourth set, and held in control as the Buccanneers clawed back to tie the set at 13-13. The tie turned into a lead for Park as three Knight errors paced their 4-0 run, but a service error after a Marian timeout got the home team in system. Van Note slammed back to back kills to give Marian temporary control, however their opposition turned back and used a 5-1 rally to take a 22-19 lead. Brooks calmed the Knights with a powerful kill coming out of a timeout, and consecutive points scored by Summers brought the score to a 22-22 tie. Park would force set point after scoring two Amanda Jonovich kills, but Brooks and Norwood turned the tides to force match point. A Buccaneer attack error after their final timeout put the Marian fan base at ease, as the 26-24 win gave Marian the four-set victory.

Marian played strong in the win recording a .248 hitting percentage, while posting 11 total blocks. Van Note led the Knights attack with 18 kills, while Norwood had 15 kills. Brooks led the team with six total blocks as she had six kills, and Summers had five kills to go with three blocks. Lanman had five block assists, and Logan Smith led the Knights with 13 digs to pair with 17 assists. Katie Hardegree had a double-double with 24 assists and 11 digs, and Feld had three service aces.

MARIAN PUNCHES TICKET TO ORANGE BEACH WITH 1-0 WIN OVER CAMPBELLSVILLE

INDIANAPOLIS – The Marian women’s soccer team punched their ticket into the NAIA National Championships on Saturday night, winning the Opening Round Final over Campbellsville 1-0. The Knights improve to 19-0-2 with the victory, advancing to Alabama for the fourth consecutive season.

Marian wasted no time getting the offense going as Naomi Walters took the first attempt 26 seconds into the game that would go wide left before Campbellsville fired one back in the 2nd minute. The Knights continued to put pressure on the Tigers’ defense as Erin Oleksak fired one wide in the 13th minute.

Olekak’s efforts would pay off around seven minutes later when she broke through the Campbellsville defense, booting one in back netting to give Marian the 1-0 lead. The Knights didn’t stop their offensive threat as Maya Decker would take her shot, making the Campbellsville goalie make the save. The Tigers responded with four shots in the half with Noelle Rolfsen making the save on two of the shot attempts.

The Knights would see another great look after Gretchen Mallin found Walters in the box on a corner kick that would see a header by Walters go just high to send Marian into halftime with the 1-0 lead over Campbellsville.

The second half of play remained an even matchup with both teams taking five shots in the half. Marian took the first two shots of the half with Jacelyn Smith and Decker each taking attempts before the momentum seemed to switch to Campbellsville for around the next eight minutes of action. The Tigers made the Marian defense work in the second half as they continued to pose a threat with their offensive attack, but it was the Knights also making the Tigers’ defense work as Walters found herself right in front of the goal, leading to the Campbellsville goalie making a miraculous save.

The Tigers fired off three shot attempts in the final seven minutes to try and tie thing up, but Marian was able to hold off the #2 seeded Campbellsville to earn the 1-0 victory.

Campbellsville outshot Marian 11-10, but it was the Knights executing on their attempts with Oleksak having the lone goal of the match on two shots. Walters took four shot attempts, while Smith and Decker each took two. Rolfsen recorded the shutout, making four saves in the win.

Marian now advances to the NAIA Women’s Soccer Championship final site in Orange Beach, Alabama.
