PENN STATE FINAL
Still (OSU), still wearing sunglasses, jumped out to an early 7-0 lead. But Moye came back with 14 unanswered points.
Still went to the air and began picking Moye apart, scoring 17 straight points for a 24-14 lead at the half.
Meanwhile, Mauti (LSU) was being abused by his teammates for beating up on a young fan (PSU), 41-0, in a side game.
Moye opened the second half with a quick-strike score to draw within 24-21 in the Penn State title match.
But Still came back with another long ball to set up a short touchdown pass. He went for two but came up short, as the lead was 30-21.
Moye used a bomb to get within scoring range but had to settle for a short field goal to make it 30-24.
Still responded by going to the ground game, grinding out a first down past midfield before going back to the air. After working it inside the 1-yard line, he scored on QB sneak. A run for two was good and the lead reached 38-21.
Still intercepted a pass on Moye's next drive, and Moye began to be heckled by his teammates. "Moye, the game is over, just quit," someone yelled.
But his defense stiffened, forcing a rare Still punt. Still then made Moye punt, and gained a huge field-position edge. He scored on a 25-yard run for a 45-21 lead and — since the lead was more than 21 — the game was over.
Still is the Penn State champ.
PENN STATE-MARYLAND SHOWDOWN
Still, a defensive tackle, found himself pitted against Maryland tight end Drew Gloster in the ultimate championship. In this game, both athletes used their own teams.
Gloster held an early 7-3 lead before Still began to give heavy action to his tailback. The tailback, ironically, was Green.
Following a long Green run and a safety, Still and Penn State led 19-7. The lead reached 26-7 in the third quarter before Gloster finally found the end zone again, cutting it to 26-14.
But Still got a late insurance field goal and ran out the clock for a 29-14 victory.
