FAMU spoils Howard's homecoming.

October 23, 2014 - Rattler quarterback Damien Fleming (16-23-164-2tds) led Florida to a 31-28 MEAC Conference win spoiling Howard’s homecoming as the Bison remain winless in MEAC Conference play. Fleming also ran for two touchdowns as the Rattlers held off the Bison to improve to (2-5, 2-1) in MEAC play.

The Bison trailing 31-14 after three quarters came up short after outscoring the visitors 14-0 in the fourth quarter.

Howard quarterback Greg McGhee (22-31-258-3tds) brought Howard back to cut the deficit to threebut time ran out as Howard dropped to (1-7, 0-5)in MEAC conference play. McGhee also rushed for141 yards.

The Maryland Terrapins down by 14 in the first Quarter fought back and defeated Iowa (5-2, 2-1) 38-31 in a BIG-TEN Conference game. The Terps outscored the Hawkeyes 31-17 in the final three quarters.

Terrapin quarterback CJ Brown (12-23-120-1td) injured in the third quarter returned to lead Maryland (5-2, 2-1) in conference play as the home team showed resilience in their comeback. Brown also rushed for 98 yards in the win.

Wide receiver Stefon Diggs (9-130yds.1td.) was a sparkplug having his best game of the year. Maryland will travel to Madison to face BIG-TEN power Wisconsin.

In the $ NCAA Playoff for pay championship series defending champion Florida State (7-0) edged Notre Dame (6-1) 31-27 in a hard fought nationally televised contest Saturday night.

Jameis Winston (23-31-273yds.-2tds.) led the Seminole comeback win after trailing 17-10 at the half. State was held to 50 yards rushing by the Irish defense on 16 attempts. If there is a chink in State’s offensive attack the running game has been inconsistent this season.

The defense has also given up 31 points to Oklahoma State and 41 points to North Carolina St.,but the Seminoles do one thing well they win !

FSU has the weekend off and they’ll play Louisville (6-2) at Papa John’s Stadium Thursdays night in a nationally televised contest. You can bet that the city and university will be jacked up for this one. The Cardinals (6-2) have a tough defense which will be put to the test.

Let’s give a cheer to West Virginia (5-2) as the Mountaineers defeated previously undefeated Baylor 41-27 leaving four undefeated teams in Division One. Baylor dropped to (6-1) and out of the $ championship playoff picture for all practical purposes. Baylor still has in its grasp a $ payday of significant nature but they must now when out.

So where are we now in the collegiate season?

Things are shaping up but there’s a long way to go yet and we still are on a week to week basis waiting for the next domino to fall. I have listed a sweet
sixteen that have a shot at the $ four team playoff and a big time $ money bowl:

1. Florida State (6-0) idle until Thursday.
2. Mississippi (7-0) at LSU (6-2) Tigers need
a big time win in the worst way.
3. Mississippi State (7-0) at Kentucky (5-2)
4. Alabama (6-1) at Tennessee (3-4) Can the
Tide produce another eye catching rout like last week.
5. Auburn (5-1) hosts South Carolina (4-3)
6. Oregon (6-1) at California (4-3)
7. Notre Dame (6-1) will sit and wait for someone to stumble.

9. Georgia (6-1) joins Notre Dame
10. TCU (5-1) hosts Texas Tech (3-4)
11. Kansas State (5-1) hosts Texas (3-4)
