Around FCS: Randolph uses legs in Holy Cross win over Colgate

Worcester, MA (Sports Network) - Colgate had no doubt that Holy Cross quarterback Dominic Randolph could hurt them with his arm. The fifth-year senior is seventh lifetime in FCS passing yardage and seems to break another record or two every weekend.

But the No. 17-ranked Raiders didn't expect Randolph to beat them with his legs Saturday afternoon as the No. 22-ranked Crusaders rolled to a 42-28 victory over previously unbeaten Colgate before 9,547 fans on a rainy day at Fitton Field in a crucial Patriot League contest.

Randolph completed 20-of-31 passes for 288 yards and four touchdowns, but it was his timely rushing skills that did as much to key the Crusaders' win. Randolph ran 14 times for a game-high 116 yards and two touchdowns, all career bests.

"It's a little more tiring, but its a lot more fun to run," said Randolph, one of the 20 nominees for the 2009 Walter Payton Award. "We saw some things on film where we thought we could run the ball."

Holy Cross improved to 6-1 overall and 2-0 in the Patriot League, while Colgate fell to 7-1 and 2-1.

Who would have expected that Randolph would gain more yards on the ground than Nate Eachus, Jordan McCord, or anyone else in Colgate's prominent ground attack?

Eachus was limited to 69 yards and one TD on 23 carries, while McCord rushed just nine times for 15 yards. That dynamic duo had accounted for 1,239 yards during Colgate's seven-game winning streak.

That statistic not only showed how effective Randolph was, but it also displayed how good the Holy Cross defense performed on a sloppy day where the Crusaders held the nation's top-ranked rushing team to only 120 yards on the ground and to only 296 yards of total offense.

"Obviously, Colgate is a great team," Holy Cross coach Tom Gilmore said. "I know there were some plays where they got us good, but when you look at the entire game, our defense did a great job."

Outside of a great play-action fake by Colgate quarterback Greg Sullivan (18-0f-32 passing for 176 yards and two TDs, 13 carries for 53 yards rushing) that resulted in a 31-yard scoring strike to All-American receiver Pat Simonds (five catches, 70 yards), Holy Cross made it difficult for the Raiders to score and also to sustain drives.

Colgate had maintained possession of the ball for most of the second half last year in a heart-breaking 28-27 loss for Holy Cross that ruined the Crusaders' Patriot League title aspirations and lifted the Raiders into the FCS playoffs.

"We had been living with that game since last November," Randolph said.

But on this Saturday, every time that Colgate seemed to build a little momentum, Randolph and the Crusaders answered.

It took only 94 seconds for Randolph to find Bill Edger (nine catches, 127 yards) with a 15-yard touchdown aerial on a huge third-and-goal play. Edger scored on a slant when cornerback Demetri Diamond slipped to the ground on the slick grass.

That pass took on added significance as it allowed Randolph to break Alcorn State quarterback Steve McNair's record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass. Randolph, who tied McNair's mark last week, has now thrown at least one TD pass in 37 straight appearances.

Randolph had one hiccup midway through the first quarter when Colgate cornerback Coree Moses made a great break on an out route and picked off a pass for a game-tying 37-yard touchdown return.

But Randolph came back with a nine-yard touchdown throw to Nick Cole on the next Holy Cross possession and snuck over from the one for his first of two TD runs with 12:49 left in the first half to make it 21-7.

Colgate could never get closer than seven points the rest of the way as Holy Cross immediately countered every Raider score.

Second-half touchdown passes to Nick Cvetic and Alex Schneider finished off another big offensive day for Randolph, who accounted for 404 of the Crusaders' 440 yards of total offense.

There were a couple of other harmless interceptions for Randolph in the second half when he tried to make big plays out of nothing, one late in the game when the contest was pretty much decided.

"He's pretty incredible to watch," said Sullivan, one of the top Patriot League quarterbacks in his own right. "I have to go against our defense in practice everyday and I know how good it is. But we couldn't find a way to stop him today.

Gilmore said that his staff made a conscious effort to concentrate on Randolph in the running game after a frustrating 34-31 loss to Brown two weeks ago. That effort paid off on Saturday when this heady senior turned several runs into huge first downs.

"We knew Colgate would take away some of our passing schemes," Gilmore explained. "He forces teams to defend the entire field. If you take one thing away, he will find another way to beat you."

Randolph's eye-popping career numbers now are at 11,928 yards passing, 12,568 yards of total offense, 1,002 completions, 1,578 attempts and 105 touchdown passes - all totals that rank him in the top seven in FCS history.

But the numbers take a back seat to his goal of a Patriot League championship.

"We've got four Patriot League games left," said Randolph. "We've got to focus on Fordham now."
