Midshipmen make it five straight wins over Army

Navy can hook an anchor to that Commander-in-Chief's Trophy.

With a pair of rushing touchdowns and a defense that produced two scores, the Midshipmen sent their seniors out with another win over Army and a career sweep of the service academies.

Jason Tomlinson and Reggie Campbell each ran for scores to lead Navy to a 26-14 win over Army on Saturday in the 107th meeting of one the most storied rivalries in college sports.

Keenan Little returned an interception 40 yards for a touchdown late in the fourth for Navy. The Midshipmen equaled their longest winning streak in the series, matching a pair of five-game streaks, most recently from 1959-63. Navy has outscored the Black Knights by a 202-68 margin the last five years and boosted its overall series lead to 51-49-7.

"We're fortunate we don't have anybody on our team that's lost to another academy," Navy coach Paul Johnson said of his senior class becoming the first to finish 8-0 against Army and Air Force. "That's a real goal to aspire to. It will sink in."

Spurrier's contract extended one year

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Steve Spurrier wanted the world to know he was happy at South Carolina. His newest contract, complete with a nearly half-million dollar raise, should get the message across.

Spurrier was awarded a one-year extension that locked him up at South Carolina through 2012 and gave him a hefty boost to $1.75-million - up from his previous deal of $1.257-million - for his total compensation package. The agreement was approved by the university's board of trustees Saturday.

"Hopefully, this announcement will really clear the air that I'm going to be here a long time," Spurrier said.

TCU 38, AIR FORCE 14: Jeff Ballard completed all 12 of his first-quarter passes and ran for a touchdown, and the host Horned Frogs dominated throughout for their seventh straight victory to reach 10 for the fifth time in seven seasons. Ballard was 20-of-25 for 220 yards and a touchdown.

NEW MEXICO ST. 50, LOUISIANA TECH 23: Chase Holbrook passed for three touchdowns and ran for another for host New Mexico State. Holbrook set NCAA records by a sophomore for passing yards (4,619) and total offense in a season (4,560). He completed 41 of 54 passes for 514 yards.

LA.-MONROE 39, LAFAYETTE 20: Kinsmon Lancaster completed 11 of 18 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns and kicker Cole Wilson made four field goals to lead visiting Louisiana-Monroe. The Warhawks picked off Louisiana-Lafayette quarterback Jerry Babb three times.
