The 25th ranked Buccaneers and the soon-to-be Conference USA 49ers decided the scoreboard needed some numbers on it. The Buccaneers came out early, scoring three touchdowns in the first quarter and carrying a 28-17 lead into halftime. The 49er run game made its mark in the second half as Kalif Phillips ran for two scores and the score lay 41-41 at the final bell.

Matt Johnson threw for 305 yards and Phillips ran for 196 more. Austin Duke had 251 receiving and two touchdowns.

North Carolina A&T Aggies 38, Howard Bison 22

The Aggies came out fast with three scores in the first quarter. Howard closed the gap to 28-22 by the third quarter, but ten more points sealed the win for the Aggies. Kwashaun Quick had 200 yards passing and two scores. Marquell Cartwright had 135 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Western Carolina Catamounts 35, Furman Paladins 17

Furman is having a tough year, but don’t tell that to the Catamounts. Western Carolina came out strong in the first half, as Spearman Robinson (another great name) caught two touchdowns to help build a 21-10 lead. Detrez Newsome took over from there, as he bulled forward for two rushing touchdowns in the second half for the final margin. Darius Ramsay ran for 113 yards and another score.
