    "Arkansas prep RB scores 10 TDs in loss

    LEPANTO, Ark. (AP) - Kendric Smith scored 10 touchdowns, on runs ranging from 1 to 54 yards, and it still wasn't enough for Hughes High School.

    Smith broke the state record for touchdowns in a game, the last coming in overtime, but Hughes lost 73-72 Friday night to East Poinsett County. He also scored on runs of 13, 20, 28, 35, 40, 45, 52 and 53 yards while breaking the Arkansas record of eight touchdowns in a game set by Alvin Bell of Little Rock in 1919 and matched by Chris James of Osceola in 2003.

    Quarterback Brett Hardin had 835 all-purpose yards for East Poinsett County in the meeting of previously winless teams.

    East Poinsett County (1-6) and Hughes (0-5) were tied 66-66 at the end of regulation. Hughes scored first in overtime on a 1-yard run by Smith, but missed on a two-point conversion. East Poinsett County responded with a 2-yard touchdown run by Hardin and won the game on an extra point by Joseph Peridore."

    Wow...crazy game....didn't see a forum for high school so I thought I'd put it here. No matter what level of play this was, those are some amazing totals.

    Ohio State Offense Defeats Defense 59-56 in Saturday Scrimmage

    Aug. 21, 2005

    The Ohio State offense defeated the Buckeye defense 59-56 Saturday in the jersey scrimmage in Ohio Stadium. The win allows the offense to continue to wear the coveted scarlet jerseys during fall practice.

    With the score tied at 51-all, freshman quarterback Robbie Schoenhoft connected with sophomore flanker Devon Lyons from 39 yards out on what turned out to be the winning score.

    The Buckeye defense had two more chances to win the game, but could not come up with enough points to take the lead on either of the Scarlet's final two possessions.

    Schoenhoft, a true freshman from Cincinnati St. Xavier, completed 13 of 21 passes for 137 yards, including a 28-yard TD pass to sophomore Ted Ginn Jr.

    Lyons, from North Braddock, Pa., led all receivers with nine catches for 108 yards. Ginn finished with three catches and linebacker-turned-fullback Brandon Smith had two.

    Redshirt freshman Erik Haw was the leading rusher for the offense with 37 yards on nine carries, one more yard than senior Brandon Schnittker had on the same number of attempts.

    Sophomore Antonio Pittman of Akron carried the ball 10 times for 26 yards and true freshman Maurice Wells, a product of Jacksonville, Fla., finished with 33 yards on nine carries.

    Junior quarterback Troy Smith had a 31-yard run and recorded the only rushing touchdown of the day on a short-yardage dive. Smith also completed eight-of 13 passes for 74 yards.

    Redshirt freshman Todd Boeckman took the majority of snaps with the first offense and completed nine of his 18 passes for 46 yards.

    The Buckeye defense recorded eight sacks, blocked a punt and had a 35-yard interception return by Donte Whitner.

    With temperatures approaching the 90s, the Buckeyes still ran nearly 150 plays.

    "I was impressed with our effort," Coach Jim Tressel said afterwards. "We played hard and made some big plays, and I thought we were playing just as hard at the end as we were in the beginning. That shows me we are in good shape."

    Senior Josh Huston nailed a pair of field goals and freshman Ryan Pretorius connected on a 55-yard try.

    The Buckeyes are off Sunday, but return to practice Monday.

    Syracuse 37, Buffalo 17
    by DJRamFan
    Sept. 11, 2004

    AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) Anthony Smith blocked two straight punts in the second quarter, scoring off the first and setting up another touchdown with the second, and Syracuse overcame a shaky start to beat Buffalo 37-17 on Saturday night.

    The Bulls (0-2) coming off their second consecutive 1-11 season and regarded as one of the worst teams in Division I-A, had Syracuse (1-1) reeling early and were threatening to hang a defeat on the Orange that would have made last week's season-opening 51-0 loss at Purdue an afterthought.


    Instead, after J.J. Gibson returned a fumble by Syracuse fullback Greg Hanoian 57 yards for a touchdown to give the Bulls a shocking 10-3 lead early in the second quarter, the Orange defense clamped down and led a 24-point surge before halftime.

    That spoiled the night for a school-record-crowd of 29,013, just short of capacity at Buffalo Stadium, who turned out hoping for an upset over the most high-profile team to visit Buffalo in the school's modern era.

    And it was Smith who led the way. With the Bulls pinned back at their 10, he took advantage of a bad snap, blocked a punt by Ben Woods near the goal line, and then pounced on the ball in the end zone for a touchdown.

    Buffalo was unable to gain a first down after the ensuing kickoff, and Smith rose to the occasion again, making a diving block of another Woods punt. This time, Kellen Pruitt caught the ball and returned it 13 yards to the 1.

    It was the fourth career block for Smith, one off the school record held by David Tyree, and marked the first time a Syracuse player had blocked two kicks in a game since Michael Dresner blocked two punts against West Virginia in 1996.

    After getting tackled for a loss on first down, Walter Reyes scored on a 3-yard run to put Syracuse ahead 17-10 with 7:14 left in the second quarter.

    Reyes, touted for the Heisman Trophy after gaining 1,347 yards scoring 21 TDs last year, finished with only 59 yards on 17 carries, his second subpar game in a row. Still, he moved past Floyd Little into fourth place on the school's career rushing list with 2,713.

    After the Bulls went three-and-out, Damien Rhodes scored on a nifty 46-yard up the middle, the longest run of his career. A 38-yard field goal by Collin Barber gave Syracuse a 27-10 halftime lead.

    Kelvin Smith returned an interception 22 yards for a touchdown midway through the third to give Syracuse a 37-10 lead.

    Buffalo linebacker Ollice Ervine recovered a fumble in the end zone by Syracuse quarterback Xzavier Gaines with 4:21 left for the game's final points.

    Prior to the game, former Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner jogged around the field carrying an American flag and country singer Lee Ann Womack sang the national anthem to commemorate...

    It's Lobos-Aggies For The 96th Time
    by DJRamFan
    One of the nation's oldest rivalries resumes Saturday as the undefeated New Mexico Lobos meet the New Mexico State Aggies for the 96th time. Kickoff is 6:05 p.m. Mountain Time from University Stadium in Albuquerque. KRQE-TV will televise the game on a delayed basis unless advance ticket sales warrant a live broadcast. An overflow crowd of 40,000 is expected by Saturday evening.

    New Mexico is 2-0 for the first time since 1998 after getting past Missouri 45-35 last Saturday in Columbia. It was the Lobos' second win in six days as they defeated UNLV last Monday 24-22.

    The victory at Mizzou is the 42nd in head coach Rocky Long's career at UNM, pushing him past Roy Johnson as the school's all-time leader. It also put a halt to a pair of dubious streaks: Since 1997, UNM had lost 15 straight road games against non-conference opponents outside the state of New Mexico and UNM had dropped 12 consecutive contests to Big 12 teams on their home turf dating to 1983.

    The Lobos have won seven straight regular-season games (7 of 8 overall if you include the Emerald Bowl loss to Navy) and four in a row at University Stadium.

    New Mexico State is 0-2 following a 39-0 loss at Colorado. The Aggies were held to 181 yards of total offense. Through two games, NMSU has minus-12 yards rushing while allowing 11 sacks. The Lobos have led the Mountain West Conference in sacks five straight seasons and in rushing defense four of the past five years.

    The New Mexico-New Mexico State series dates to Jan. 1, 1894. The schools played six games - from 1894-1911 - before the territory of New Mexico became a state in 1912. The 95 total games makes UNM-NMSU the 35th-longest series in the NCAA record book. Wisconsin-Minnestota is the all-time leader at 114 games.

    The Lobos are trying to start 3-0 for the first time under head coach Rocky Long. Dennis Franchione's 1997 UNM team began 6-0.

    New Mexico was picked to finish 2nd in the MWC in 2005. New Mexico State 6th in its inagural year in the Western Athletic Conference.

    MOORE 55 STEPS FROM THE RECORD BOOK - Senior TB DonTrell Moore needs 55 yards rushing Saturday to become the Lobos' career leader, a record that has stood for 27 years. Moore's 39-game career has produced 3,808 yards, which is already ranks No. 1 in the Mountain West Conference. Former Lobo Mike Williams gained 3,862 yards in 45 games between 1975-78.

    THIRD STRAIGHT RECORD FOR SEASON TICKETS; PRORATED TICKET AVAILABLE - As of Monday morning, a school-record 17,213 season tickets had been sold in 2005. It's the third consecutive year UNM has established a record for season tickets. To put that number in perspective, the Lobos averaged just 15,822 fans per game in 1991. A total of 15,729 season tickets were purchased in 2004. A prorated four-game season ticket is available through this Friday. Prices...

    Bisons Pound Southwest Baptist, 47-14, in Season Opener

    Bisons Pound Southwest Baptist, 47-14, in Season Opener

    BOLIVAR, MO. – Harding scored the first 26 points of the game and cruised past Southwest Baptist 47-14 at Plaster Stadium on Saturday in the opener of the 2005 season for both teams. The Bisons have won nine of their last 10 season openers, including their last four straight.

    Harding’s 47 points were the most scored by the Bisons in a season opener since a 58-10 victory over Austin College in 1972. The 33-point margin of victory was its greatest in an opener since a 39-0 win at Lane College in 1992.

    Southwest Baptist dropped its second straight opener to Harding. The Bisons won last season’s meeting 17-10 in Searcy.

    Harding controlled the game on both sides of the ball. Senior quarterback Adam Lybrand threw three touchdown passes, connecting with Blake Smith on a 17-yard screen pass and hooking up twice with senior Reid Smith. Lybrand finished the game 8-of-14 for 177 yards. Reid Smith led the team with three catches for 95 yards. Junior tailback Kyle Wess, making his first career start, carried eight times for 87 yards and a 19-yard touchdown.

    The Bisons rolled up 467 yards of total offense, rushing 40 times for 190 yards and completing 13 passes for 277 yards.

    The Bison defense forced five turnovers, including four interceptions. Scott Dutile, Jeremy Fairrow, Rocky Hall, and Craig Quattlebaum each picked off passes for Harding. Southwest Baptist had 335 yards of total offense, led by junior tailback Moine Nicholson, who rushed 26 times for 119 yards an a touchdown.

    Even the Bisons’ mistakes turned into positives. Blake Smith fumbled at the SBU 1-yard line late in the first quarter, but on the next play the Harding defense stuffed Maurice Jefferies in the end zone for a safety.

    Junior kicker Ben Davis added a career-long 37-yard field, and redshirt freshman Moala Lolohea scored from five yards out on his first career carry. SBU’s Rony Santil caught an 8-yard touchdown pass just before the break to cut Harding’s halftime lead to 26-7.

    Harding scored 21 unanswered points to open the second half. Wess’ scoring run opened the floodgates. With 5:35 left in the third quarter, Reid Smith hauled in his second touchdown pass, and Hall followed up with a 37-yard interception return for a touchdown early in the fourth.

    The Bisons return to First Security Stadium in Searcy next Saturday to take on Missouri Southern at 6 p.m. It will be Harding’s first game on the new Pro Play artificial surface.

    Notes: Harding is 13-3 in non-conference games since joining the NCAA in 1997 and have won six straight … Harding has won five of its last six openers on the road … Saturday’s opener on Aug. 27 tied the earliest that the Bisons have opened a football season … Harding is now 6-2 in August and has won its last five … the last time Harding opened on Aug....

    ***** burn Rams repeatedly

    ***** burn Rams repeatedly

    SAN FRANCISCO • In a game as big as any the Rams have played in several years, big plays rained down all around them Sunday at Candlestick Park. Ultimately, the Rams were done in by their inability to keep San Francisco from gobbling up major chunks of real estate at inopportune times.

    "We had more big plays we gave up today than we did all year," defensive end Chris Long said. "That's the difference. Really, that game falls squarely on our shoulders defensively."

    The ***** came into the NFC West showdown ranked just 22nd in the NFL in total offense. But they got a major jolt from nimble quarterback Troy Smith, an early-season free-agent pickup, in a 23-20 overtime victory that booted the Rams (4-5) out of a first-place tie with Seattle.

    A former Heisman Trophy winner from Ohio State, Smith made just his fourth start in 3˝ NFL seasons. He subbed for sore-shouldered Alex Smith.

    Dodging and darting, Smith extended plays with his elusiveness and showed no fear flinging the ball downfield. He averaged 20.9 yards per completion, connecting of 17 of 28 passes for 356 yards and a touchdown, with no interceptions. His passer rating was a sterling 116.7.

    "Troy's a good player; we knew that going in," said linebacker James Laurinaitis, a former Buckeyes teammate. "We knew he had the ability to scramble and throw it up. ... He definitely hurt us today."

    It was the highest passing total of the season against the Rams, by far. It also easily outdistanced Smith's best previous outing: He threw for 199 yards in his first career start, as a rookie with Baltimore in 2007.

    The Rams faced Smith and the Ravens in September in the final preseason game. He passed for 237 yards but had a woeful 47.3 percent completion rate and was intercepted three times in a 27-21 Rams win.

    Smith was waived a few days later, and the ***** grabbed him. On Sunday, he helped shove San Francisco (3-6) back into contention in a tight division race.

    "We knew he had real good scrambling ability," said defensive end C.J. Ah You, who had one of five Rams sacks. "It's real frustrating, especially when you think you've got him and he makes a good play down the field."

    The ***** generated 11 plays of more than 20 yards, including two pass-interference penalties vs. the Rams. Also, touchdown passes of 19 and 43 yards were nullified by Niners penalties.

    Ten of those big gainers came via the pass. The ***** made an early statement, striking for a 32-yard toss on their first play from scrimmage, then topping that with a 65-yard bomb on the first snap of their second series.

    Cornerback Kevin Dockery was victimized on both plays. "The first one, I (was) being...
