November 28, 2013 - The Howard University Bison football team finished their MEAC Conference season with a
thrilling 42-39 double overtime win over Hampton
University Saturday at Hampton.

The Bison offense rolled up 556 yards total offense improving their record to 6-6 on the season. Quarterback Greg McGhee finished the season finale 26-48-265 yards and one touchdown McGhee also rushed for 147 yards on 23 carries.

Anthony Phillyaw rushed for 111 yards and four touchdowns including the winning touchdown with on a 4 yard run in double overtime.

Coach Petty at his post game press conference talked about McGhee and Phillyaw.

DeAnthony Thomas and the Oregon Ducks are out of National Championship contention.

“They are two outstanding players and they have made great plays for us all year. Greg just plays consistently for us. There is a lot of promise for the next couple of years. Phillyaw has three more years to go.”

Howard led 26-7 at the half and had to come from behind after a furious comeback from the Pirates to tie the score on a 20 yard field goal with 3:20 remaining in the 4th quarter.

The Maryland Terrapins suffered another tough ACC Conference loss, falling to to Boston College 29-26 at Byrd Stadium Saturday.

On the winning field goal for the visitors, Maryland head coach Randy Edsall called time out as Eagle kicker Nate Freese attempted a 52 yard field goal and the kick was no good. On the second attempt the field goal was good and the Terrapins record fell to 6-5 on the season.

In the continuing saga of the final year of the BCS $ and the run to the championship game Baylor became the latest victim to stumble dropping a 49-17 Big 12 Conference game to Oklahoma State as the Cowboys kept their hopes alive for a big $ BCS payday.

So now there are three heavyweights remaining for the big prize $. Alabama (11-0) rolled over Chattanooga 49-0 in preparation for the latest SEC Conference battle against Auburn (10-1) who was idle this past weekend. Florida State (11-0) pounded Idaho 80-0 ! Wait a minute. I thought the play to pay carnage games were over this late in the
season. Apparently not young man ! Meanwhile Ohio State remained unbeaten with their 42-14 win over Indiana 42-14.

One loss Oregon now (9-2) saw their BCS payday reduced to no chance with their 42-16 loss at Arizona as the video game offense stalled for the second week this season. Clemson (10-1) kept their hopes alive with a 52-9 win over the Citadel. I thought the carnage games were over? South Carolina (9-2) punished Coastal Carolina 70-10. Missouri
kept their hopes alive with a 24-10 win over SEC
Mississippi improving to (10-1) on the season.

Wait a minute Duke (9-2) defeated Wake Forest 28-21 and
is still in the hunt for a $ BCS payday ! What a ride it has been for the Dukies this year. Michigan State who we discussed last week as one of the most overlooked teams in college football improved to (10-1) with their 30-6 win over Northwestern. UCLA was put out of their misery dropping a 38-33 PAC-12 Conference game to Arizona State (9-2) The Bruins (8-3) had two chances to win it in the latter
stages of the fourth quarter. Louisville (10-1) in the
American Athletic Conference (formerly Big East)
kept their BCS $ hopes alive with a 24-17 win over
Memphis.

Well what about Northern Illinois from the MAC Conference, you never talk about them? Yes I do, they are 11-0 and in the hunt. Last year Northern played in the Orange Bowl and got punished by Florida State and nobody wants to see that. We like to see Boise State who proved themselves maybe you will get a second chance but in a four game playoff forget it!

High school football is in play and this past weekend in the District at Wilson Friendship Collegiate beat Perry Prep 42-20. Friendship will play McKinley Saturday at one at Wilson.

McKinley blanked Phelps 34-0 and Carroll jumped
on Sidwell Friends 52-13. In Maryland Patuxent beat Gwynn Park 35-28. Northwest beat Quince Orchard 28-20. Suitland edged DuVal 18-17. Surrattsville beat
Sparrows Point 36-28 and Paint Branch edged Perry Hall 51-48.

Over in Virginia Broad Run over Stone Bridge 23-21. Colonial beat Hylton 27-13. Westfield beat Robinson 21-14. Centreville beat South County 55-35. Lake Braddock beat Yorktown 40-7 and Stonewall Jackson edged Langley 51-48.
