  • S. Carolina tops Miami 24-21 in Independence Bowl Dec 27, 2014 7:57 PM
    It took South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier less than two quarters to abandon his gameplan and go back to what he knows best. “We’re going to chuck it down the field and see what happens,” Spurrier said. Thanks to Dylan Thompson and Pharoh Cooper, the change of heart worked. Thompson threw for 294 yards and two touchdowns, Cooper caught nine passes for 170 yards and a touchdown and South Carolina to beat Miami 24-21 on Saturday in the Independence Bowl. South Carolina (7-6) has won a school-record four straight bowl games. Miami (6-7) ended the season on a four-game losing streak and hasn’t won in the postseason since 2006. It didn’t look good for the Gamecocks early. Miami took a 6-0 lead and was completely controlling the game thanks to Duke Johnson, who ran for 132 yards and caught five passes for 51 yards. South Carolina’s offense, meanwhile, wasn’t doing much of anything. But in the middle of the second quarter, Spurrier decided to cut the passing game loose — even in cold and wet conditions. The strategic change paid off immediately. Thompson hit Cooper on a long pass over the middle of the field and the 5-foot-11, 201-pound sophomore made a few more moves in the open field to finish off a 78-yard touchdown play and give the Gamecocks a 7-6 lead. They never trailed again. South Carolina scored 17 straight points to take a 17-6 halftime lead. It was a satisfying ending to a frustrating season for the Gamecocks, who started the season with aspirations of competing for Southeastern Conference and national titles before quickly fading into mediocrity. Spurrier has had just one losing season in 25 seasons as a college head coach — back during his first season with Duke in 1987. Miami’s Brad Kaaya threw for 236 yards, one touchdown and one interception. The touchdown came late in the fourth quarter on an 11-yard throw to Phillip Dorsett with 2:16 remaining to pull the Hurricanes within 24-21. But they never got the ball back after South Carolina picked up a crucial first down on Mike Davis’ 3-yard run with 1:34 left. It was an another impressive game for Johnson, the 5-foot-9, 206-pound junior who has likely played his last game with the Hurricanes and is expected to declare for the NFL draft. But he had a costly fumble on Miami’s 29 with 5:24 remaining and South Carolina recovered. Johnson also suffered a right ankle injury on the play and didn’t return to the game, though he was up and walking on the sideline in the final minutes. Johnson said he was “fine” after the game and “probably” could have returned if it had been needed. “We are what our record is,” Miami coach Al Golden said. “But in so many ways we’re better than that.” Two plays after Johnson’s fumble, Thompson hit Cooper on a spectacular pass and catch to get down to the Miami 2. Thompson fit the ball into a tight window and Cooper helped him by leaping over the defender to make the grab. Thompson trotted into the end zone untouched on the next play and the Gamecocks had what proved to be an insurmountable 24-14 lead with 4:13 left. Miami squandered some early opportunities, settling for field goals after long drives stalled. Michael Badgley made field goals from 27 and 26 yards to give the Hurricanes a 6-0 lead by early in the second quarter. The Gamecocks never looked comfortable until Thompson’s 78-yard touchdown to Cooper. Thompson scrambled out of the pocket a few minutes later on a broken play before finding Davis on a 15-yard touchdown pass. “The golden rule of a quarterback is to never throw back across the field,” Thompson said. “But Mike looked so naked out there, I just thought ‘I’ll give it a shot, it’s my last game.”’ The Gamecocks’ defense — maligned for much of the season — didn’t give up a touchdown until late in the third quarter when Gus Edwards’ 3-yard touchdown run and the Miami’s ensuing 2-point conversion pulled the Hurricanes to 17-14. Cooper was the game’s offensive Most Valuable Player. South Carolina linebacker Jonathan Walton was the defensive MVP after making four tackles, including 1 1/2 for losses, and also grabbing an interception.

  • Northwestern beats Northern Kentucky 76-55 Dec 27, 2014 5:15 PM
    Tre Demps tied a career-high with 23 points as Northwestern beat Northern Kentucky 76-55 on Saturday. Northwestern took its largest lead at 74-50 on a Demps 3-pointer with 2:32 left. He finished 9 of 18 from the field. Bryant McIntosh added 15 points and Scottie Lindsey had 12 for Northwestern (9-4) in its final non-conference game before beginning Big Ten action on Tuesday. The Wildcats have won three straight and four of five. Todd Johnson scored 14 points for Northern Kentucky (6-7). The Norse fell to 0-3 against Big Ten teams this season. Northwestern extended its lead to 18 with 17:41 left after three-point plays by Sanjay Lumpkin and Demps, and a Lumpkin dunk. Northern Kentucky cut the lead to nine on Johnson’s 3-pointer and free throw with 10:38 remaining. But Vic Law’s jumper and Gavin Skelly’s putback extended Northwestern’s lead to 13 with 8:02 left.

     
  • Penn State tops Boston College 31-30 (OT) in Pinstripe Bowl Dec 27, 2014 9:04 PM
    Christian Hackenberg hit Kyle Carter for a 10-yard touchdown pass in overtime and Penn State kicked the extra point that Boston College could not, lifting the Nittany Lions to a 31-30 win in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Saturday night. The Nittany Lions (7-6) played in a bowl game for the first time since January 2012 after the NCAA lifted the most severe sanctions levied against the program in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Penn State’s Sam Ficken used retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter’s locker and some of his clutch postseason play appeared to rub off on the kicker. He sent the game into OT with a 45-yard field goal with 20 seconds left in regulation and won it with his extra point. Tyler Murphy hit David Dudeck for a 21-yard touchdown past on Boston College’s drive. Mike Knoll shanked the extra point for the Eagles (7-6) and that was the opening Penn State needed to complete its comeback from a 21-7 deficit late in the third quarter. Penn State has played under the cloud of scandal and sanctions for the most of the last four years, tearing at the fabric of the community known as Happy Valley and tarnishing the legacy of Joe Paterno. Moments after Penn State hoisted the bowl trophy on the field, first-year coach James Franklin took the microphone and thanked the seniors “who stayed with this program when we needed them most.” He told the thousands of die-hards that packed the stadium, “You want to talk about closure? Look around! This is closure!” The Eagles left stunned after blowing the lead and missing their eighth extra point of the season. Knoll put the Eagles ahead 24-21 on a 20-yarder with 2:10 left in the fourth. Ficken, who won the opener in Dublin with a 36-yard field goal as time expired, bookended the season with his biggest kick yet. Captain to captain, Ficken had the honor of using the retired Jeter’s locker Saturday. Ficken is Penn State’s special teams captain. Hackenberg played more as he did freshman year, when he had NFL scouts raving about first-round potential rather than this season’s erratic sophomore effort. He set Penn State records for completions and yards passing (34 of 50, 371 yards) and earned MVP honors. He went over the middle and hit DaeSean Hamilton to make it 21-all with 6:48 left in the fourth. Hackenberg should have been eligible for a potential bowl game his senior season. But when the bowl ban was lifted this season, the Nittany Lions earned the chance to play in front of 49,012 fans at Yankee Stadium. Murphy and Jon Hilliman had run wild for the Eagles to build a lead. Murphy found Shakim Phillips in the corner end zone for a 19-yard touchdown and a 14-7 lead early in the third. He then showed how he set the ACC’s single-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 1,079 yards in 2014 with a 40-yard dash that put the Eagles ahead 21-7. Hilliman, who led the team with 12 rushing TDs, broke through early with a 44-yard run that gave him more yards on one carry than three teams had in a game this season against Penn State: Central Florida (24), Massachusetts (3) yards and Maryland (25). He averaged a whopping 19.2 yards-per-carry on just five attempts for 101 yards in the first half. He found a huge opening late in the first quarter for a 49-yard touchdown run that tied the game at 7. The Nittany Lions scored first on Hackenberg’s 72-yard TD pass to Chris Godwin down the right sideline with 5:22 left in the first. The score earned a booming “We are! Penn State!” chant from the Penn State fans that helped fill Yankee Stadium. The Nittany Lions turned the Bronx into a miniature Happy Valley, flooding the train from Philadelphia to New York on Saturday afternoon, then overtaking the subway lines. Once they emerged at the corner of 161st Street and River Avenue, Yankee Stadium may as well have been Beaver Stadium. Mark Holtzman, who runs non-baseball events for the New York Yankees, said tickets sold out in 36 hours, the fastest of the five Pinstripe Bowls so far.
