Around FCS: Home, Sweet Home

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - If there is a coach in FCS who keeps winning and losing in perspective, it's Southern Illinois' Jerry Kill.

That's what happens when you experience a 1-10 season in your first year as a Division I college head coach. It's also what happens when you survive a battle with cancer, as the genial Kill did after the 2005 season.

If there is one game where you don't want to face Kill, it's on Southern Illinois' homecoming.

"When I first got here, the only game we won was on homecoming," said Kill.

Kill and the Salukis only beat Illinois State during his first year in Carbondale, Ill. in 2001, but they have won 50 games in the six years since, including Saturday afternoon's 24-17 victory over Youngstown State.

It may have taken until the final jump ball in the end zone to put this one away, but no one was going to come into McAndrew Stadium and spoil Kill's homecoming day.

An adolescent reporter asked Kill if he was nervous on the final play.

"I don't relax until the game is over," Kill admitted to the youngster.

After watching his No. 7 ranked Salukis beat then-No. 10 Youngstown State in the 90-degree heat and humidity, Kill knows there will be no time to relax anytime soon. This Saturday, Southern Illinois has to travel to Cedar Falls, Iowa to take on No. 2 ranked Northern Iowa in the inhospitable UNI Dome.

In last Saturday's victory, the Salukis found themselves down 10-0 before the 13,188 fans had time to settle in their seats. But this Southern Illinois is showing it is resilient in finding ways to win.

Known in the past for producing some of the top running backs in FCS (do names like Tom Koutsos, Muhammad Abdulqaadir, Brandon Jacobs, Terry Jackson and Arkee Whitlock ring a bell?), as they have ground out wins.

But the Salukis of 2007 have shown they can win with last-minute comebacks (i.e. the 34-31 victory over Northern Illinois, when they scored two touchdowns in the final 61 seconds), on the arm of quarterback Nick Hill, or with hard-nosed defense.

Defense was probably the biggest factor in Saturday's victory, as the Salukis allowed just one touchdown after that poor start, bending, but not breaking against the pounding of Youngstown State's potent rushing attack. That allowed Hill and company the time to put together an eight-play, 87-yard scoring drive in the fourth quarter.

Some wondered if Deji Karim had scored too soon on his 15-yard dash into the end zone with 1:50 remaining. But the SIU defense held up against poised YSU senior quarterback Tom Zetts in the final 1:45 with the game on the line.

"It was a tremendous game if you were a fan," said Kill.

There were plenty of other fan friendly games around the country. There were upset wins by Towson against No. 14 Richmond, Eastern Kentucky against No. 16 Eastern Illinois, Central Arkansas against No. 19 Sam Houston State and Alabama A&M against No. 25 Southern.

There was a near-miss as Eastern Washington almost knocked off No. 1 Montana.

EWU got big performances from quarterback Matt Nichols (37-of-59 for 451 yards and two TDs) and receiver Aaron Boyce (17 catches, 232 yards, one TD) to lead 23-21 on Felipe Macias' 39-yard field goal with 2:20 left. But Montana's Cole Bergquist completed a fourth-down pass to keep the Grizzlies alive and set up Dan Carpenter's 34-yard game-winning kick with 26 seconds remaining.

If you like snow games, there was Montana State and Southern Utah sloshing it out in Bozeman, Mont. while Weber State and Sacramento State were doing the same in Ogden, Utah.

Montana State only managed one touchdown on a sloppy field - Aaron Mason's seven-yard scoring scamper in the second quarter - but it was enough for a 7-3 win. The Bobcats fans showed up in force (14,337), despite the snow.

Maybe Weber State could try playing in the snow every weekend. The Wildcats used four connections between quarterback Cameron Higgins and receiver Tim Toone to beat Sacramento State 26-7 in the snow.

There were last-play heroics from quarterbacks like Towson's Sean Schaefer and kickers like Georgia Southern's Jesse Hartley.

Trailing 21-17 at home after Tim Hightower of Richmond (26 carries, 120 yards) scored on a 14-yard TD jaunt with 29 seconds left, Schaefer took Towson down the field and fired a 14-yard scoring strike to Demetrius Harrison with no time remaining to squish the Spiders.

Schaefer completed 29-of-33 passes for 287 yards and two TDs. He was successful on 18 straight passes at one point for a school record and his completion percentage of 87.9 was another Towson mark.

Hartley nailed a 54-yard field goal on the final play of the game to lift Georgia Southern to a 41-38 win at home over South Dakota State. The Eagles had blown a 31-7 first-half lead before Hartley bailed them out.

Defense was the recipe when Nicholls State's Kareem Moore and Ladarius Webb combined for four interceptions in the first half and returned all of them for touchdowns in a 58-0 victory over Northwestern State. It is believed to be an NCAA record for one half.

No. 11 Delaware has been haunted by Ricky Santos since he made his debut at Delaware Stadium as a freshman. The Blue Hens thought they might get the best of Santos when they knocked him out of the game with a shoulder injury in the first half.

But just as Santos had replaced an injured Mike Granieri to beat the defending national champion Hens in the 2004 season opener, R.J. Toman came off the bench to guide UNH to this win at home. Toman fired a pair of TD passes to Keith LeVan and LeVan tossed another to Mike Boyle on an option pass to lift the Wildcats to a 35-10 lead.

Joe Flacco (40-of-52, 419 yards, two TDs) led Delaware on three touchdown drives in the fourth quarter before the comeback ran out of time in a 35-30 loss - the first of the year after five Hen wins.

James Madison almost joined Delaware and Richmond as Colonial Athletic Association upset victims, but the Dukes held on when safety Nick Adams intercepted an Anthony Orie pass with 39 seconds left to preserve a 21-14 victory over host Northeastern.

In what might have been the Ohio Valley Conference game of the year, Eastern Kentucky made a major step towards a possible championship with a huge 28-21 victory at Eastern Illinois.

With the usually solid EKU ground game silenced by EIU's tough defense, Colonel quarterback Allan Holland stepped forward to hit 30-of-44 passes for 321 yards and two TDs. But perhaps the most important statistic for Eastern Kentucky was the fact that the Colonels played without turnovers for the third time in four wins.

Sam Houston State seemed like a team of promise with Rhett Bomar leading the offense this season, but the Bearkats lost for the third time in five games when another quarterback took the center stage.

Nathan Brown out-dueled Bomar by completing 28-of-37 passes for 308 yards and a pair of scores as Central Arkansas toppled SHSU 35-14. Bomar was 22-of-38 for 241 yards and a TD, but was intercepted twice.

Alabama A&M made things more interesting in the SWAC by hanging on after blowing most of a 28-7 second-quarter lead to beat Southern 33-28 and snap the Jaguars' five-game win streak.

Bryant Lee was 24-of-39 for 219 yards and a pair of TDs for Southern, but Kelcy Luke's 20-of-33 day for 226 yards and two scores and a 55-yard option pass for a touchdown by receiver Gerald Stockdale to Thomas Harris helped lift A&M to the triumph.

In the Southern Conference, Wofford completed an impressive victory trilogy by beating The Citadel 28-7 in Charleston, S.C. The Terriers have put themselves in position to win a league title after consecutive wins over two-time defending national champion Appalachian State, Furman and now The Citadel.

Wofford held The Citadel without an offensive touchdown and broke open a 7-7 with three second-half scores. Dane Romero's 38-yard TD dash gave the Terriers the lead and fourth-quarter touchdowns from QB Josh Collier and fullback Michael Hobbs completed the victory.

Appalachian State had an easier time with its 45-7 crushing of Gardner-Webb. Kevin Richardson scored four touchdowns in the second quarter, but the number that was more important was that it was the Mountaineers' 30th consecutive win at Kidd Brewer Stadium.

ASU now holds the longest home winning streak in all of Division I football after former San Diego coach Jim Harbaugh directed Stanford to a 24-23 win over FBS No. 2 ranked USC Saturday night in Los Angeles, snapping the Trojans' 35-game win skein.

The Mountaineers haven't lost at home since a 2002 first-round, 14-13 playoff loss to Maine and now have the third longest home winning streak in FCS history. Georgia Southern had a 39-game string from 1997-2001 after posting 38 wins in a row at Paulson Stadium from 1985-1990.

The Patriot League provided some of the most fun of the entire weekend.

Fordham stopped title favorite Lehigh 28-18 when Josh Skelton threw for 288 yards and three TDs and the Ram defense intercepted four passes. Linebacker Earl Hudnell clinched the win with under two minutes to play when he picked off a pass and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown.

Dominic Randolph of Holy Cross helped the Crusaders outlast the Ivy League's Brown 48-37 by tossing six touchdown passes on his way to a 29-of-37, 404-yard aerial day. Michael Dougherty of Brown was 42-of-65 for 422 yards and two TDs for Brown on a day when the two offenses combined for 1,095 yards.

Colgate's Jordan Scott lifted the Raiders to a 28-24 win over Bucknell with 270 yards rushing and three touchdowns. His final score from four yards out with 31 seconds remaining capped off the win.
