Hubert Leads Wildcats In Win

The Massachusetts Minutemen should have been outmatched by Kansas State in Manhattan and that's exactly what happened. The Wildcats had their best defensive performance of the year by holding Massachusetts to just seven points and nabbing two interceptions from quarterback A.J. Doyle.

On the other side of the ball, running back John Hubert was everywhere for the Wildcats. He carried the ball 18 times for 118 yards (6.6 YPC) and had two receptions for 50 yards. One of his receptions was a 43-yard touchdown, just before the half, that made the score 27-7.


Cyclones Rally Falls Short

It took until the second half for the Iowa State Cyclones to get things figured out offensively on Saturday night, but by that point it was too little too late.

Trailing 13-0 at the half, the Cyclones were to score 21 points in the game's final thirty minutes while racking up 263 of their 319 total offensive yards. However, the thirteen points they gave up in the first half and the two scores allowed in the second were too much to overcome.

Iowa's Mark Weisman ran for 145 yards on 35 carries and Jake Rudock threw two touchdown passes to lead the Hawkeyes to a 27-21 win in the state rivalry game.


Quarterback Switch Leads WVU To Season High

Charles Sims ran for 116 yards and the Mountaineers scored three fourth quarter touchdowns to put away Georgia State 41-7.

The big story for West Virginia was redshirt freshman Ford Childress who completed 25 of 41 passes for 359 yards and 3 touchdowns. With struggles on the offensive side of the ball at the start of the season, Dana Holgorsen made the decision to start Childress over Paul Millard. The response was 604 total yards of offense and a season high 41 points.

Defensively, the Mountaineers didn't give up any points until the third quarter when Travis Evans put Georgia State on the board with a 65-yard touchdown run. It was the only score of the day for the Panthers and made up nearly a third of their offensive yards on the day.

Evans' touchdown pulled the Panthers to within 17-7 but the Mountaineers responded with three consecutive fourth quarter touchdowns, including a 32-yard run from Sims.
