RECORD-SETTING KICKER: Florida State's Dustin Hopkins became the NCAA career record holder in points by kicking when he booted a 26-yard field goal against Maryland. Hopkins now has accounted for 448 points, nine more than previous record-holder Kyle Brotzman of Boise State (2007-10).
MR. TOUCHDOWN: Temple's Montel Harris more than doubled his season total for touchdowns and matched the nation's season high for TDs in a game by getting into the end zone seven times against Army. Stefphon Jefferson of Nevada scored seven touchdowns against Hawaii on Sept. 22. Before Saturday, Harris had a total of five touchdowns in his first nine games. His 355 yards rushing was the second-best performance in the nation this season, behind Ka'Deem Carey's 366-yard outing for Arizona against Colorado last week.
TOUGH AGAINST RUN: Florida International's defense turned in the best performance of the week against the run. Florida Atlantic netted minus-12 yards on 19 carries against the Panthers, who beat the Owls 34-24. FIU set a school record with the stingy run defense a week after allowing South Alabama to rush for 188 yards. The Panthers are 54th nationally against the run, allowing 153 yards a game.
SHIP-SHAPE QB: Zach Zulli passed for 469 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score to key Shippensburg's 58-20 win over Bloomsburg in the first round of the Division II playoffs. Shippensburg totaled 673 yards, 507 through the air, in its first playoff win since 1991.
