NEWS & NOTES
Kansas State's Allen Gets 7th Punt Return TD
Kansas State junior David Allen returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown against Texas, giving him seven career punt returns for scores and moving him into a tie for the Division I-A record shared by Oklahoma's Jack Mitchell (1946-48) and Nebraska's Johnny Rodgers (1970-72).
Allen, a backup running back, has two punt returns for touchdowns in as many weeks, six in his past 17 games and only one of less than 70 yards in career.
Towson quarterback Joe Lee, a senior from Warren County High School, completed 30 of 54 passes for 481 yards in a 14-0 victory over Holy Cross. It was his third 400-yard game of the season, and the second time this season he has broken the single-game school record. ...
Brian Partlow (Handley High) threw for an Old Dominion Athletic Conference-record 405 yards and four scores to lead Randolph-Macon to a 30-23 win over Washington & Lee. Partlow completed 25 of 46 passes and broke the school passing record for the third time this year.
R.J. Bowers tied a Division III record with his 11th career 200-yard rushing game as Grove City (Pa.) beat Thiel, 56-0. Bowers had 270 on 28 carries in little more than three quarters. A former baseball player in the Houston Astros organization, Bowers tied a mark shared by Maine Maritime's Rob Marchitello (1993-95) and Simpson's Ricky Gales (1988-89).
Georgia Southern sophomore Adrian Peterson had his 20th consecutive game with at least 100 yards rushing, as he gained 211 in a 62-0 rout of VMI. Peterson is one game shy of the Division I-AA record for consecutive 100-yard rushing games, set by Nevada's Frank Hawkins in 1979-80. It also was Peterson's eighth career 200-yard effort.
The Eagles, Division I-AA's top-ranked team, outgained the Keydets 437 to 9 in the first half and built a 42-0 lead. VMI lost to Furman, 58-0, last week. "One-hundred and twenty to nothing in the past two weeks," VMI Coach Cal McCombs mused. "What can you say?"
