Stony Brook 16, UConn 19: Stony Brook came out swinging from the beginning of the game. Thanks to a field goal by Przemyslaw Popek, Stony Brook had a 10-3 lead going into the second quarter. UConn then responded with 16 unanswered points to regain and solidify their lead. A punt return touchdown by Deshon Foxx would be the devastating blow for the Seawolves. They would have one last score near the end of the game to make it 19-16, but UConn would hold them off for the last few minutes. Stony Brook’s Conor Bednarski completed 8 of 19 pass attempts for 128 yards and a touchdown. They outgained UConn 300-223, but couldn’t provide the scores when it mattered.
James Madison 31, Lehigh 28: The Dukes bounced back from the big loss at Maryland with great offensive performances. Vad Lee threw for 284 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Both of which went to Rashard Davis. John Miller rushed the ball 16 times for 106 yards and a touchdown. Jauan Latney punched it in from 6 yards out to put James Madison on top with only 4:32 remaining in the fourth quarter. Lehigh’s Nick Shafnisky also had a good game through the air, going 19 for 32 with 214 yards and two touchdowns.
Richmond 13, Virginia 45: Even though the score might not suggest it, Richmond actually outgained Virginia 422-330. Turnovers were a plaguing issue for the Spiders, who fumbled the ball away four times and got intercepted three times. Michael Strauss completed 24 for 266 yards but he threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball away twice, leading to two Cavalier defensive touchdowns. Their run game was contained, but they found success threw the air. Virginia took a balanced approach, scoring two touchdowns on the ground and three through the air.
William & Mary 42, Hampton 14: William & Mary led 20-0 at halftime and never looked back. The Tribe got all the work done on the ground. Mikal Abdul-Saboor had 18 carries for 107 yards and three touchdowns. Kendell Anderson added another pair of touchdowns and added 34 yards off of eight carries. The Tribe allowed two touchdowns in the third quarter, making it 27-14. William & Mary quickly settled down and put up two more scores in the fourth quarter while shutting down Hampton.
Albany 19, Central Connecticut State 0: Not only did Albany’s defense hold Central Connecticut to zero points, they also forced four turnovers and held them to 195 total yards. Senior quarterback Will Fiacchi connected with Cole King for both of the Great Danes’ touchdowns. The first was from 17 yards out and the second from 27 yards. They forced a safety in the fourth quarter.
Rhode Island 7, Marshall 48: It was 38-0 heading into the fourth as Marshall dominated Rhode Island. The lone Rhode Island touchdown came from a touchdown pass from Mack Lowrie to Charlie McKeeman. Marshall quarterback Rakeem Cato went 15 for 29 with 267 yards and two touchdowns. Cato, Devon Johnson, and Steward Butler each provided touchdowns on the ground for Marshall.
Towson 0, West Virginia 54: In the final FCS-FBS matchup of the weekend, West Virginia fired on all cylinders against the Towson Tigers. The Mountaineers outgained the Tigers 606-122. The Tigers could not provide an answer for the West Virginia offense and defense. Clint Trickett was nearly perfect for the Mountaineers. Trickett completed 35 of 40 passes for 348 yards and two touchdowns. Five different running backs added one touchdown each.
