N.C. State 32, Wake Forest 13
- Here's an excerpt from the NC State site about Shawn Price (LA
"For the better part of three-quarters, Shawn
Price was on the verge of making a big play. Consistently
running around Wake Forest offensive tackle David Walters, NC
State's speedy defensive end spent a lot of time in the Deacons'
backfield. But on many occasions, he would arrive just a half step
late, hitting Wake quarterback James MacPherson just a fraction of a
second after he had released the football. But with the Wolfpack
nursing a 23-13 lead late in the third quarter, Price finally made
the type of game-changing play that was expected of him when he
brought his substantial physical talents to Raleigh from L.A. Valley
Community College just a year ago.
Rushing from the outside, Price hit MacPherson and jarred the
ball loose. Quickly bouncing to his feet, the New Jersey native
scooped the ball up and raced into the end zone for his first career
touchdown. Not only did the play send 51,094 fans into a frenzy, it
also gave the 19th ranked Wolfpack (4-0, 1-0) all the cushion it
would need in a 32-13 ACC win over the Deacs."
- Price recorded 2 TFL (sacks), 1 FF and the recovery for TD.
Kansas State 63, Eastern Illinois 13
- Speedy WR Lawrence "Taco" Wallace
(Mt. San Antonio) hauled in a 58 yard TD pass and was 2-69 on the
day for K-State.
- Daniel Davis (Garden City) handled the rock
9 times for 60 yards and a TD. (6.6 avg.) The KSU RB was a starter
at North Carolina as a true freshman, played on year at GCCC, sat
out 2001, and is now on track. Good to see it.
- KSU quarterback Marc Dunn set records at
Ricks College (now defunct)...and he's finally getting to show what
he can do at the next level after sharing time with Ell Roberson in
2001. Against 1AA Eastern Illinois, Dunn was 3-4 for 67 yards and 2
TDs. He also ran one in. Okay, so that's not really 'showing what he
can do,' but that'll change versus Southern California this weekend.
- Former Butler Co. wide receiver James Terry
scored on a 41-yard strike for KSU.
- Bobby Walker has played real well for KSU
since coming up from Trinity Valley. He picked off a pass and
returned it 31 yards. Walker also contributed 7 tackles.
- KSU DB Randy Jordan (Bakersfield) picked off
a pass and had 3 tackles.
Iowa State 36, Iowa 31
- What can you say about Seneca Wallace, the former Sac City QB that
used to get dogged on the JCFootball.com message boards. "Yeah,
but he threw 6 INTs against Butte and was even worse against CCSF!
He can't win in the big games," is what people used to say.
Well, that was the reality at the JC level. But now that he's moved
down to the Big 12...well...he's doing better. ;-) In a dramatic
comeback win over in-state rival Iowa he was 23-37-1-361 and rushed
12 times for 30 yards and a TD.
- Adam Benike, the Cyclones' PK and Rochester alum, nailed FGs of 36
and 38 yards down the stretch.
- Brad Banks (Hinds) QB'd the losing Hawkeyes. He went 12-21-178
with 2 TD passes (long 50).
Bowling Green 51, Missouri 28
- TE Ben Fredrickson (Orange Coast) doesn't catch many balls for
many yards, but he always gets in on the fun for Mizzou. This week
he caught 2 for 9 yards.
- Former Sac City standout Keith Wright is a monster at Missouri.
Against Bowling Green he tallied 14 tackles, 4 TFL, 2 sacks, and a
- Coffeyville and Missouri are pretty tight. Last winter the Red
Ravens sent DT Atiyyah Ellison (2 tackles, 1 QB hurry) to Mizzou and
two years ago it was Rover/KR Tauras Ferguson (5 tackles).
- DE Antwaun Bynum (Hutchinson) had 4 tackles and 2 sacks for the
Boise State 35, Wyoming 13
- Senior BSU linebacker Chauncey Ako (Santa Rosa) led the Broncos

did a great job returning punts.
Portland State 23, NC A&T 20 (OT)
- PSU defensive end Josh
Ratliff (Butte; Texas Tech) had nine tackles, three for loss and
- Ex-College of San Mateo QB Jason Douglas is starting for A&T
in his first season there. He went 18-24-0-189 with on TD pass in
the tough loss. Unfortunately, he was on the run a lot and coughed
up the ball a time or two.
- Jesse Levin (CCSF) was the fourth receiver two years ago at CCSF...but
he has been a world beater at Portland State. Every time I look at
the box scores, especially last year, he is tearing it up. Versus
A&T he had 4 receptions for 92 yards.
Eastern Washington 55, Western Oregon 20
- Former Snow TE Boyd Clyde caught one ball for 14 yards -- and it
was a TD. He's with the EWU guys.
