Tech feels wrath of Kansas

LAWRENCE, Kan. — A week after losing 6-3 to I-AA North Dakota State, Kansas rebounded.

Jordan Webb, a redshirt freshman in his first start, threw three touchdowns to lead the Jayhawks past No. 15 Georgia Tech 28-25 Saturday.

The Jackets dropped several passes and aided scoring drives with a 13-yard punt, a roughing-the-passer penalty and a kickoff that went out of bounds.

"You could tell that they came out mad," quarterback Joshua Nesbitt said.

Webb's final touchdown came 41 seconds into the fourth. Daymond Patterson caught a pass in the flat, broke free from a pack of tacklers, broke another tackle and dived into the end zone for a 32-yard score and 28-17 lead.

"There was a big sense of urgency," Patterson said. "Every little thing we needed to fix, we fixed it. We kept going over it and over it."

Tech now is in for the same kind of week Kansas just put in.

"It was a matter of us beating ourselves," running back Anthony Allen said. "I feel like we came out flat. We weren't as hyped, and we weren't as ready as we were supposed to be."

Wake 54, Duke 48: Tanner Price threw for three touchdowns and ran for one for the host Demon Deacons. The freshman played the entire second half after sharing time in the first with Ted Stachitas, who bruised his left (nonthrowing) hand. "As a football coach, your worst nightmare is when you get into those shootouts," Wake coach Jim Grobe said. "Your comfort zone's around your defense being stingy."

BC 26, Kent St. 13: Dave Shinskie, benched in the second quarter, threw two third-quarter touchdowns for the host Eagles. In between, the Golden Flashes, who trailed 6-3 at halftime, fumbled a punt, one of their five turnovers.

Clemson 58, Presbyterian 21: Kyle Parker threw for 114 yards and two touchdowns in just four series for the host Tigers. The I-AA Blue Hose have lost 16 in a row.

Maryland 62, Morgan St. 3: Jamarr Robinson threw two first-half touchdowns and Danny O'Brien three for the host Terps. It was their most points since 62-24 over Virginia on Nov. 22, 1975. The I-AA Bears had 6 yards of offense in the first half.

    While Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov grab the headlines, don't sleep on their linemate, Vladislav Namestnikov. Namestnikov is far from a third wheel, with eight points in eight games. "He might not have the names the other two have, but he's as pivotal and vital to that line as the others," coach Jon Cooper said.
