10/21/14 - David Cobb, Sr/2015, Minnesota, 5-11, 229 (DS#4 RB)[Newsfeed] David Cobb rushed for 194 yards and a touchdown and Ryan Santoso kicked a 52-yard field goal with 4:59 left to cap Minnesota's comeback on Saturday, giving the Gophers a 39-38 victory over Purdue and their first 3-0 start in Big Ten play since 1990. Cedric Thompson had two interceptions for Minnesota (6-1, 3-0), including a diving pickoff of Austin Appleby with 2:28 remaining to seal it. This was the first time in 23 games under coach Jerry Kill that the Gophers rallied from a halftime deficit to win.
Appleby threw three first-half touchdown passes for the Boilermakers (3-5, 1-3), but he was only 4 for 10 for 18 yards in the second half. Raheem Mostert rushed for 115 yards on five carries and Akeem Hunt added 98 yards on 17 attempts, but Purdue's bid to spoil the 100th homecoming at Minnesota fell excruciatingly short. Mitch Leidner tallied two scores and 165 yards on 9-for-18 passing and had 84 yards and a touchdown on 13 rushes. Santoso missed an extra point pushed back by penalty in the second quarter, and his run up the middle on a fake attempt in the third quarter was stuffed at the goal line. - AP Sports

For their third strike, White faked a screen to the left, and then hit Davis in stride at the 50 and he ran untouched for an 85-yard touchdown to give the Bulls their first lead, 35-30, with 6:13 remaining. After Tulsa lost 7 yards and punted on its next series, South Florida answered with Marvin Kloss kicking a 28-yard field goal to stretch the lead to 38-30 with 2:33 left. Tulsa's last drive stalled at its own 33. Marlon Mack added 130 yards rushing and two touchdowns for South Florida (3-4, 2-1 American).

10/21/14 - Stefon Diggs, Jr/2016, Maryland, 6-0, 195 (DS#7 WR)[Newsfeed] Will Likely returned an interception 45 yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown, and Maryland rallied from an early 14-point deficit to beat Iowa 38-31 Saturday for its first Big Ten home victory. The Terrapins (5-2, 2-1) scored 24 straight points after falling behind by two touchdowns with 8½ minutes elapsed. It was 24-21 before Likely picked off a Jake Rudock pass and sprinted untouched into the end zone with 12:29 left. Stefon Diggs caught nine passes for 130 yards and a touchdown for Maryland, playing its first season in the Big Ten after leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Terps are now 1-1 at home in league play after losing 52-24 to Ohio State two weeks ago.
Iowa (5-2, 2-1) committed three turnovers, sputtered offensively after its quick start and had its three-game winning streak end. Rudock went 32 for 56 for 317 yards and two touchdowns, and Mark Weisman ran for 78 yards and two touchdowns. Maryland starting quarterback C.J. Brown was temporarily knocked out of the game in the third quarter after taking a hard hit to the upper body.

Up 20-14 with 3:03 to play, Duquense's defense made a goal-line stand on their own 5 and seemed to have the game won, but Sacred Heart (6-1, 2-0 Northeast) forced a safety four plays later to make it 20-16, then Noel hit Dube with the game-winner on the Pioneers' next possession. Noel was 14 of 28 for 204 yards and an interception. He threw a 22-yard TD pass to Dube for a 7-0 first-quarter lead and ran 67 yards for a score in the third quarter.

Derrick Craine added 137 rushing and Keon Williams finished with 89 yards and a touchdown for a Chattanooga offense that racked up 315 yards on the ground and 478 overall. Aaron Miller put The Citadel on the board with a 2-yard quarterback sneak early in the third.

10/21/14 - Dyshawn Davis, Sr/2015, Syracuse, 6-2, 221 (DS#10 OLB)[Newsfeed] Syracuse turned to its defense to snap a four-game winning streak. The Orange scored two defensive touchdowns, and freshman quarterback AJ Long ran for another TD as the Orange defeated Wake Forest 30-7 on Saturday. Robert Welsh returned an interception 42 yards for a touchdown and Micah Robinson scored on a 51-yard fumble return to give Syracuse its first win since Sept. 13 when they beat Eastern Michigan. The Orange (3-4, 1-2 ACC) knocked out Wake Forest starting quarterback John Wolford in the second quarter, rendering the Demon Deacons already struggling offense even more ineffective. His replacement Tyler Cameron was benched in the fourth quarter.
Syracuse limited Wake Forest to 68 total yards after Wolford left the game, while outgaining the Demon Deacons 370-170. Long completed 22 of 32 passes for 171 yards and had a 4-yard touchdown run in his second start, while Devante McFarlane ran for 114 yards on 10 carries. The game turned late in the second when blitzing Syracuse linebacker Dyshawn Davis crashed into Wolford from behind as he rolled out and set up to throw, jarring the freshman quarterback's upper body and altering the trajectory the ball. Welsh easily intercepted the floating pass and returned it 42 yards for a touchdown giving Syracuse a 17-7 lead. Wolford left the game with a head injury and did not return. He spent the second half on the sideline in street clothes with what the team called a "suspected concussion." Cameron was 6 of 8 for 27 yards. - AP Sports
10/18/14 - Deontay Greenberry, Jr/2016, Houston, 6-3, 198 (DS#9 WR)[Newsfeed] Greg Ward Jr. threw two touchdown passes in a 51-second span late in the third quarter to help Houston beat Temple 31-10 on Friday night.

Ward started the third-quarter scoring burst with a 7-yard touchdown pass to Deontay Greenberry with 1:42 left. On the next play from scrimmage, Howard Wilson intercepted P.J. Walker's pass at the 26 to set up Ward's 30-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Jackson that completed the scoring.
Greenberry had 10 catches for 63 yards, and Markeith Ambles added six receptions for 96 yards. Ryan Jackson led the Cougars in rushing with 75 yards on 18 carries.

10/18/14 - Jay Ajayi, rJr/2016, Boise State, 6-0, 216 (DS#6 RB)[Newsfeed] Jay Ajayi ran for 158 yards and two touchdowns, including a 54-yard run on Boise State's clinching drive in the Broncos' 37-27 victory over Fresno State on Friday night. Boise State (5-2, 3-1 Mountain West) avenged a 41-40 overtime loss to the Bulldogs last season to claim the Milk Can rivalry trophy. Fresno State (3-5, 2-2), winless in Boise since 1984, squandered Marteze Waller's 164-yard rushing performance. Grant Hedrick completed 21 of 30 passes for 190 yards and a touchdown, caught the go-ahead scoring pass and ran for 56 yards for the Broncos. Fresno State overcame a 10-point deficit to tie it at 27 late in the third quarter. Boise State rebounded with a 17-play, 75-yard drive that ended with receiver Thomas Sperbeck's 9-yard touchdown pass to Hedrick.
"Being on the opposite end of a pass gives me some better perspective," Hedrick said. "It's especially hard when you're really wide open, but Thomas made a great pass. And our defense took control from there." The Bulldogs scored all three of their touchdowns on drives of two plays or less, and minus-1 yards of offense in the fourth quarter. "When our defense is firing on all cylinders, we're hard to move the ball against," Boise State coach Bryan Harsin said. "Great defenses finish and we've been able to finish the past two games with our defense on the field." - AP Sports
