San Diego rallies to beat Drake 17-14


November 1st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Keith Williams threw the go-ahead touchdown pass to Chris Campano with 1:21 to play Saturday to lead San Diego to a 17-14 comeback win over Drake. Trailing 14-10 in the fourth quarter, Williams mounted a 13-play, 87-yard drive — the Toreros’ longest of the game — capping it with a 7-yard pass to Campano for the win. Williams was 16 of 27 for 202 yards and an interception.

Williams put San Diego (7-1, 5-1 Pioneer) on the board with a 35-yard TD pass to Brandon White in the second quarter. David Long kicked a 50-yard field goal in the third quarter, and San Diego outgained Drake 271-204.

Conley Wilkins scored on a 1-yard run and Andy Rice had a 23-yard TD run to give the Drake (5-4, 4-2) an early 14-0 lead. San Diego’s victory ends the Bulldogs’ streak of 19-straight home conference game wins, with the last loss coming in 2009.

November 1st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Mark Weisman and Akrum Wadley combined for 200 yards rushing and four touchdowns, leading Iowa to a 48-7 win over Northwestern on Saturday. The Hawkeyes (6-2, 3-1 Big Ten) raced to a 24-0 lead in the first quarter and held the Wildcats to a season-low 180 yards of offense. Northwestern (3-5, 2-3) dropped its third straight game.

Weisman rushed for 94 yards and three touchdowns. It was the senior’s fifth straight game with multiple scores. Wadley rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown in his first career game. The freshman is Iowa’s first 100-yard rusher in 11 games. Iowa quarterback Jake Rudock threw for 269 yards and a score.

The Hawkeyes recorded five sacks, scored off a blocked punt and recovered a fumble. Trevor Siemian completed 8 of 18 passes for 68 yards for Northwestern.

No. 19 Oklahoma pounds Iowa State 59-14


November 1st, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Oklahoma’s Trevor Knight became the first FBS player this season to throw three TD passes and rush for three touchdowns in a game and the 19th-ranked Sooners trounced Iowa State 59-14 on Saturday.

Knight had 230 yards passing, a career-high 146 yards rushing and six total scores for the Sooners (6-2, 3-2 Big 12). They gained a season-high 751 yards in beating the Cyclones for the 43rd time in their past 45 tries. The Sooners had 480 yards and led 35-7 at halftime, a promising sign ahead of next week’s matchup with Baylor in Norman.

But star wide receiver Sterling Shepard was carted off with an apparent leg injury in the first quarter and did not return. Sam Richardson had 239 yards passing for Iowa State (2-6, 0-5).

ISU suspends women’s basketball guard Nikki Moody


November 1st, 2014 by admin

(AP) – Iowa State University says it has suspended indefinitely senior women’s basketball guard Nikki Moody for violations of team rules.

Coach Bill Fennelly says in a statement Friday Moody’s “attitude in the team setting has become a distraction to our learning environment.”

He says the team has high behavioral standards and Moody’s “behavior has been inconsistent with those values.” He says she can return to the team activities if and when improvement is seen.

There was no further explanation of what type of behavior led to the suspension.

Moody, a communications studies major, started 30 games last season for the Cyclones, averaging 12.5 points, 4.4 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game.
