Friday, November 6

UTEP 24, Rice 21: With the game tied at 21-21 entering the fourth quarter, Jay Mattox broke the tie with a 24-yard field goal with 48 seconds to play to lift the Miners. RECAP

Saturday, November 7

Florida International 48, Charlotte 31: In a matchup of two struggling teams, the Panthers jumped out to a big lead in the second quarter and kept enough distance to send the 49ers to their seventh straight loss. RECAP

Western Kentucky 35, Florida Atlantic 19: Ace Wales and D'Andre Ferby were key in helping the Tops defeat Florida Atlantic, but every touchdown for WKU came through the air as the Tops had to over come a bit of a slow start and two different deficits to stay perfect in C-USA play. RECAP

Louisiana Tech 56, North Texas 13: Kenneth Dixon rushed for 120 yards and 3 touchdowns in the first half and the Bulldogs jumped out to a 28-0 lead at halftime. Dixon ended up with a career game with 6 rushing touchdowns. RECAP

Middle Tennessee 27, Marshall 24 F/3OT: Marshall missed five field goals and still had a chance for a win, only to come up short after a blocked kick gave the Herd its first road loss in conference in over two years. RECAP

Old Dominion 36, Texas San Antonio 31: UTSA did a solid job of containing ODU running back Ray Lawry, but it was not enough, as a late touchdown by the Monarchs was too much to overcome for the Roadrunners, who fall to 1-8 on the season. RECAP
