BEAMER REMEMBERS

Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer paid tribute to the memory of a former teammate and the 74 other members of the Marshall University football team, coaching staff and community killed in a 1970 plane crash.

Beamer laid a 3-inch by 5-inch piece of stone at the nearby Spring Hill Cemetery memorial in Huntingon, W.Va., about 2 1/2 hours before the game between his No. 13 Hokies and the Thundering Herd.

He was teammates at Virginia Tech with Frank Loria, who went on to become an assistant at Marshall under fellow Tech graduate Rick Tolley. Tolley also was killed in the crash at the nearby Tri-State Airport.

FAN DOWN

The game between Rutgers and Ohio had a dramatic moment at the end of the third quarter when a fan in the stands suffered an apparent heart attack and was given CPR behind the Ohio bench.

Bobcats coach Frank Solich walked onto the field after the opening play of the fourth quarter, trying to get the officials to stop the game so a cart carrying the fan could get off the field. The cart rolled down the sideline and out of the stadium seconds later.

TIMU HURT

Washington linebacker John Timu was placed in an ambulance after going down while making a tackle in the third quarter against California. X-rays were normal, but he’s expected to stay overnight.

Timu was hurt while making a tackle on California running back Isi Sofele with 1:25 left in the third quarter. Timu remained down on the field and was moving his legs back and forth in pain after apparently taking a knee to the head. The training staff summoned the rest of the medical staff and paramedics onto the field before taking him off.
