Yes, Hawaii is still battling Charleston Southern, but the game may as well be over. Bryant Moniz had six touchdown passes in less than two quarters of work as the Warriors took a 49-7 halftime lead.
Now on to some non-AQ helmet stickers:
Army defense. The Black Knights forced four turnovers that were converted into 28 points in the 35-21 win over Duke. Stephen Anderson, Donnie Dixon and Richard King each had an interception, while Jarrett Mackey forced a fumble that was recovered by Donovan Travis. In addition, Josh McNary recovered another fumble. Army (3-1) is two games above .500 for the first time since ending the 1996 campaign at 10-2.
Vincent Brown, San Diego State. Caught five passes for 177 yards and his first two touchdowns of the season in a 41-7 win over Utah State. His two touchdowns went for 65 and 82 yards. He also went over the 2,000‐yard mark for his career, becoming just the 12th Aztec player to reach the milestone and the first since Jeff Webb in 2005.
Colorado State. Kudos to the Rams for breaking a 12-game losing streak and beating Idaho 36-34. Ben DeLine kicked a 35-yard field goal as time expired to give the Rams the win. A team that had struggled to score, with a combined 19 points in its first three games, exploded for its highest point total since beating Fresno State in the New Mexico Bowl 40-35 in 2008. True freshman quarterback Pete Thomas went 29-of-37 for 386 yards and three touchdowns, while Raymond Carter ran for 104 yards, caught four passes for 120 yards and had a total of three touchdowns.
UNLV, you get one, too, for winning your first game of the season, 45-10 over New Mexico.
Corey Robinson, Troy. Robinson went 18-of-38 for 316 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and directed a late-game rally to help the Trojans avoid an upset to Arkansas State. Trailing 28-27, Robinson threw for 67 yards on the game-winning drive, connecting on a 17-yard touchdown pass to Shawn Southward with 22 seconds left for the 35-28 win.
Chad Spann, Northern Illinois. Spann had not gone over 100 yards against an FBS school this season, but busted out in a big way over Minnesota. Spann ran for a career-high 223 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead the Huskies to a 34-23 win. He had 106 yards rushing in the first half alone, and his 61-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter essentially sealed the victory. Spann had the first 200-plus yard game by a Huskie running back since Garrett Wolfe ran for 203 against Central Michigan in 2006.
Dakota Warren, UTEP. Warren kicked an 18-yard field goal as time expired to give UTEP a 16-13 win over Memphis. The Miners trailed the entire game until the winning field goal. Warren had two other kicks in the game: a 50-yarder and 57-yarder. They are his first two 50-plus field goals in his UTEP career.
