Question of the Day
No. 19 West Virginia 55, Norfolk State 12
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) _ Geno Smith threw for 371 yards and four scores and the Mountaineers scored on their first seven possessions of the second half to erase a two-point halftime deficit to an FCS opponent.
West Virginia (2-0) needed just three plays to find the end zone after halftime, and after Smith hit Ivan McCartney with a 39-yard TD toss early in the fourth, the Mountaineers had scored five touchdowns in a 15-minute span.
Smith finished 20 of 34 passing after going 8 of 18 in the first half.
West Virginia’s defense woke up, too, limiting Norfolk State (1-1) to two first downs in the second half. The Mountaineers have yet to allow an offensive touchdown in their first two games.
No. 22 South Florida 37, Ball State 7
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ B.J. Daniels threw for a career-best 359 yards and one touchdown.
USF coach Skip Holtz was interested to see how his players would react to being ranked for the first time in nearly two years, and the Bulls (2-0) responded with a focused, dominating performance.
Taking up where they left off in forcing five turnovers during a surprising 23-20 season-opening victory at Notre Dame, the Bulls knocked the ball loose from Ball State’s Phil Dudley on the opening kickoff. Mark Joyce picked up the fumble and ran 17 yards to put USF ahead just 8 seconds into the game.
Kayvon Webster’s 96-yard, first-quarter fumble return got the Bulls rolling against Notre Dame. The fastest TD in USF’s relatively brief football history dropped Ball State (1-1), which did not have a turnover in its season opener against Indiana, into a hole that the overmatched Cardinals would not come close to escaping.
No. 24 Texas 17, BYU 16
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ Texas has seen something like this before: A quarterback named McCoy leading a late rally to win, pumping his fists all the way.
From 2006-2009 it was Colt McCoy, who won an NCAA record 45 games. On Saturday night, it was Colt’s younger brother Case coming off the bench to help spark the No. 24 Longhorns.
Texas (2-0) pulled ineffective starter Garrett Gilbert in the second quarter and handed the offense to sophomore McCoy and freshman quarterback David Ash in a rotation that flipped a game the Cougars (1-1) were dominating.
McCoy and Ash combined to hit 9 of 11 passes for 92 yards and Ash also rushed for 39 yards. McCoy carried the load on Texas’ winning drive, twice connecting with Jaxon Shipley for big gains before Cody Johnson punched in his second touchdown for the lead with 8:46 to play.
