  • Illinois St rallies to beat New Hampshire 21-18 in FCS semis

    Yesterday

    DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — DURHAM - Illinois State scored 15 unanswered points in the fourth quarter as the fifth-seeded Redbirds rallied for a 21-18 win over top-seeded New Hampshire in the FCS semifinals on Saturday. Tre Roberson scored on a 47-yard run midway through the fourth quarter to give Illinois State (13-1) the lead and Jon-Marc Anderson ran in the two-point conversion. Roberson was 2 for 2 on third-down conversions during the drive and capped it off with the big run. The defense held after that and the Redbirds punched their ticket to the FCS Championship against No. 2 North Dakota State, the three-time defending champion and ISU's Missouri Valley Conference rival, on Jan. 10 in Frisco, Texas.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Stanford returns home searching for answers after a disastrous trip through the state of Tennessee. Three days after getting stunned by Chattanooga, the seventh-round Cardinal trailed from start to finish Saturday in a 59-40 loss at No. 11 Tennessee. Stanford (6-4) has lost back-to-back games for the first time since December 2010 and has been held below 50 points for the first time since the 1976-77 season. Stanford had fallen 54-46 at Chattanooga on Wednesday. "Well, we've played a lot better than that," Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer said. "To compliment Tennessee, they came out with a lot of energy. They worked really hard. They were extremely physical. I don't think we adjusted.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Tiffany Mitchell withstood a bloody nose and a tough assignment in Crystal Bradford to help No. 1 South Carolina beat Central Michigan 80-45 on Saturday in the Minnesota Subway Classic. The Gamecocks are off to the best start in program history at 11-0, one win shy of tying the school record for consecutive wins in a season. Coach Dawn Staley, a former WNBA star, has the Gamecocks on top of their game in her seventh season. "We're moving in the right direction," Staley said. "We're really proud of our players to be one of a few teams still undefeated." Mitchell, the reigning Southeastern Conference player of year, briefly caused a delay in the game when she took a hit to the nose about 14 minutes in

    Yesterday

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Nevada Wolf Pack will have to wonder how the New Orleans Bowl might have been different if not for some untimely mistakes deep in Louisiana-Lafayette territory. Nevada failed to reach the end zone for the first time in six seasons and lost 16-3 on Saturday. Freshman receiver Wyatt Demps fumbled just inside the Ragin' Cajuns 10-yard line and later was called for a false start on first-and-goal at the 1. "It's missed opportunities," Nevada coach Brian Polian said. "We get it deep into the red zone twice; we have to settle for three points. The margin of victory against a good team like (Louisiana-Lafayette) and a team that looks like us is very slim.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Terrance Broadway walked into a hotel meeting room at around 5:45 a.m. and knew immediately that an unusual 10 a.m. kickoff in the New Orleans Bowl wouldn't be a problem for Louisiana-Lafayette. "It looked like people were partying in the meeting rooms, like the music was blasting," the Ragin' Cajuns quarterback said, grinning at the memory. "It was like it was 3 o'clock in the afternoon. It didn't look like it was 5:45, and our team was ready." Broadway set an NCAA Division I bowl game record by completing his first 14 passes, finishing with 227 yards and a touchdown to lead Louisiana-Lafayette past Nevada 16-3 on Saturday.

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Malik Zaire has played just a little over two quarters of meaningful football at Notre Dame. He already knows the pressure of starting at quarterback for the Fighting Irish. He need only examine the arc of Everett Golson's season. From leading the Irish to a 6-0 start and joining the Heisman Trophy conversation, to a four-game losing streak and benching in the final game of the regular season at USC, Golson's rise and fall have opened the door for his understudy, Zaire. "It's definitely a tough position because they'll love you one day and then they'll want to replace you the next day," Zaire said. As the Irish prepare for LSU in the Music City Bowl on Dec.
