College football Coastal Carolina edges BYU; Indiana tops Wisconsin
CONWAY, S. C. — Mateo Sudipo stopped Brigham Young’s Dax Milne at the one-yard line as time expired and No. 14 Coastal Carolina beat the eighth-ranked Cougars 22-17 in a short-notice showdown of 9-0 teams Saturday night. BYU (9-1, No. 13 CFP) was a late-week fill-in, traveling more than 2, 200 miles to the South Carolina coast and eagerly stepping in after No. 25 Liberty had to back out of the game Thursday due to COVID-19 concerns. It looked like an uphill climb for Coastal (10-0) with BYU entering with dynamic passers in Zach Wilson and the fourth-highest scoring offense in the country at more than 47 points a game. The Sun Belt East champion Chanticleers (10-0) controlled the clock with three long touchdown drives and made plays when it counted — none bigger than when the freshman safety Sudipo corralled Milne a few steps from the end zone. It will go down as a 17-yard completion, but the Cougars needed 18 on their final play. That sealed Coastal Carolina’s biggest victory in the program’s four FBS seasons. CJ Marable rushed for 128 yards and two touchdowns for the Chanticleers. BYU’s Zach Wilson was 19 of 30 for 240 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Even though these teams had never met, there was plenty of emotion and chippy play. It turned ugly right before halftime when Wilson’s Hail Mary pass was intercepted at the goal line. But Coastal Carolina linebackers Jeffrey Gunter and Teddy Gallagher kept blocking and hitting Wilson after the interception. The two got Wilson to the ground and when Wilson got up, Gunter hit him again. Both teams rushed to the spot before coaches and officials separated the scrum and sent both teams to the locker room. No flags were thrown. SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Ian Book threw three touchdown passes and ran for two scores in his final home game at Notre Dame, leading the Fighting Irish past Syracuse. The fifth-year senior led the Irish to a victory as a starter for the 30th time, the most ever for a Notre Dame quarterback. The Irish (10-0, 9-0 Atlantic Coast Conference, CFP No. 2) ran their winning streak to 16 games, best on the country, and their home winning streak to 24. Next up for the Irish, who are playing this season in a pandemic as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, is the Dec. 19 league championship game in Charlotte, North Carolina. It will be a rematch against No. 4 Clemson if the Tigers beat Virginia Tech later Saturday. Book was 24 for 37 for 285 yards, with touchdown passes of 21, 28 and 26 to Javon McKinley, who had seven receptions for 111 yards. Book scored on runs of 28 and 17 yards and rushed for 53 yards while improving to 30-3 as a starter and passing Notre Dame greats Tom Clements, Ron Powlus and Brady Quinn for most victories as a starting quarterback. Kyren Williams added 110 yards on 20 carries, giving him 1, 011 for the season, and freshman Chris Tyree had a 94-yard TD run for Notre Dame’s final touchdown. The Orange (1-10, 1-9) managed 414 yards on the Irish defense.
