ICYMI: First-year Kennesaw State wins first Big South game

In cased you missed it Saturday:

  • Kennesaw State (5-1) played its first conference game in its first season and pulled off a win against Gardner-Webb, 12-7. It marked the first time in Big South Conference history, other than its first year in 2002, that a newcomer won its first league game played.

  • Western Kentucky's Brandon Doughty continued to impress this week as the Hilltoppers moved to 6-1 record with a victory against North Texas. Doughty sits at No. 2 in FBS passing yards (2,709) and passing efficiency (186.4), tied for third in passing TDs (24) and first in completion percentage (.741).

  • Other top performances included Zach Pascal's 231 yards and three touchdowns receiving for Old Dominion in a 37-34 Conference USA victory against Charlotte; Kalif Phillips of the 49ers rushed for a career-high 204 yards and two touchdowns.

  • Peter Pujals passed for 508 yards and four touchdowns, but in a losing cause as Holy Cross fell 47-41 to Fordham in a Patriot League thriller.

  • Lamar's Kade Harrington rushed for 282 yards and five touchdowns in a 48-35 Southland Conference loss to Northwestern State.

  • Samford's Karel Hamilton made 15 receptions for 220 yards — both career highs — in a 44-25 Southern Conference loss to Citadel

  • Bowling Green's Matt Johnson passed for five touchdowns in a 59-10 MAC victory against Akron.

  • Harvard took its winning streak to 19 in a row with a shutout win over Lafayette. The Crimson's 42-0 victory gives them 221 points this season, the most they have scored in the first five games of a season since 1892.

  • Toledo improved to 6-0 for the first time since 1997 and reached its highest ranking in the polls in 18 years.

  • South Dakota upset third-ranked North Dakota State in the Fargodome as Miles Bergner made a game-ending 33-yard field goal that lifted USD to a 24-21 win.
