Note: Towson was not in action this past weekend.
Delaware 38, Delaware St. 14
In a game that was delayed nearly an hour due to lightning in the area, Delaware romped over their in-state rival to claim The First State Cup. QB Trent Hurley tossed 2 touchdown passes and LB Paul Warrilow recorded an astounding 18 tackles en route to earning CAA Defensive Player of the Week honors. P Rauley Zaragoza earned CAA Special Teams Player of the Week honors after converting a fake punt for a 1st down.
James Madison 42, Alcorn State 3
RB Dae'Quan Scott had a huge night for the Dukes as they cruised past SWAC member Alcorn State. Scott carried the carried the ball just 8 times but amassed 108 yards rushing and 2 TDs, and then added another touchdown through the air as he caught 5 passes for 39 yards. No surprise that he took home CAA Offensive Player of the Week honors as JMU improved to 2-0.
Old Dominion 45, Hampton 7
A week after setting a school record for passing, Taylor Heinicke decided to take it easy this week, going for just 213 yards passing and three touchdowns en route to another big win for ODU. Oh, and Heinicke led the team in rushing as well. Maybe their weakness is defense? Nope. They held Hampton under 250 yards of offense for the game and forced 4 turnovers.
Boston College 34, Maine 3
A Brian Harvey FG staked Maine to an early 3-0 lead near the end of the 1st quarter but Maine would have no further scoring as BC scored 34 unanswered points to turn the game into a rout. Marcus Wasilewski threw for 134 yards, and was picked off twice. That 134 yards represented Maine's offensive output for the game. Ouch.
Monmouth 41, Rhode Island 6
Speaking of no offense, Rhody was only able to muster a field goal in each half as they fell 41-6 at Monmouth. Monmouth held the Rams to less than 200 yards of offense on the day and put forth a strong rushing attack that did most of the damage. No wonder Andy Talley is happy to be hosting Rhody this weekend.
Minnesota 44, New Hampshire 7
New Hampshire would get to within 9-7 early on, but it was all Minnesota after that. Minnesota snapped a 2-game losing streak to FCS schools in the process. Marqueis Gray got it done both on the ground and through the air for the Gophers, who turned in a great defensive performance in shutting down a potent UNH offense.
Lafayete 17, William & Mary 14
In yet another game delayed by weather, QB Andrew Shoop led the Leopards to a somewhat surprising victory over the Tribe. After almost knocking off Maryland the week before, the Tribe may have had an emotional letdown as Lafayette stole the game. William & Mary threatened late, but couldn't recover an onside kick that would have given them the ball back with a chance to tie the game or win it.
Richmond 41, Gardner-Webb 8
RB Kendall Gaskins and QB John Laub had career games as Richmond routed Gardner-Webb in a game that had an 83 minute rain delay. Laub passed for 267 yards and 2 touchdowns while Gaskins scored 4 touchdowns on the day for the Spiders. Richmond put forth another strong defensive effort for the CAA, holding Gardner-Webb to 247 yards of offense.
