Week 2 recaps

- Missouri Southern 17, Northeastern State 14: An offensive showcase in the first half morphed into a defensive struggle in the final 30 minutes. The difference in the game was a Sean Seefeldt 31-yard field goal that closed out the first half. For NSU, Joel Rockmore ran 145 yards, and linebacker Langston Jones had 21 tackles.

- Emporia State 34, Neb. Kearney 21: The Hornets scored 31 of the first 38 points and carried a 31-7 lead into halftime. Emporia State was nearly unstoppable on offense with Dozie Iwuagwa rushing for 123 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. Quarterback Brent Wilson got in on the offensive explosion, passing for 297 yards and four touchdowns while completing 23 of 34 passes. Also for the Hornets, Ray Ray Davis and Austin Willis combined for 14 receptions for 230 yards and three touchdowns.

- Northwest Missouri State 28, Central Mo. 24: Brady Bolles’ 9-yard touchdown run with 2:51 remaining lifted the third-ranked Bearcats to a come-from-behind victory. Central Missouri built up a 17-0 lead early on before taking a 17-14 advantage into the halftime locker room. Bolles came on in relief of Northwest Missouri State’s starting quarterback, Trevor Adams, and ran for 82 yards and two scores while passing for 191 yards and a touchdown on 17 of 23 attempts.

- Pittsburg State 65, Central Oklahoma 24: The Gorillas zoomed out to a 20-0 lead and eventually led 34-3 at halftime.

The Gorillas finished with 599 yards of total offense while scoring touchdowns on nine of their 12 drives in the game.

- Washburn 54, Fort Hays State 17: Fort Hays State scored a touchdown to get within 10-7 in the second quarter, but Washburn would score the next 44 points to improve to 2-0. The Ichabods cashed in on four interceptions thrown by Fort Hays State quarterback Treveon Albert.

- Lincoln 47, Grambling State 34: The Blue Tigers opened up to a 23-7 lead and held on in the offensive slugfest. The two teams combined for 1,115 yards of offense.

- Missouri Western 63, Missouri S&T 3: Tra Brown (109 yards, two touchdowns on nine carries) and Raphael Spencer (107 yards and two touchdowns on 11 rushes) tore Missouri S&T up on the ground as the Griffons cruised to 2-0 on the year.

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
