C-USA Football Scoreboard: Points Galore


More from Conference USA

There were plenty of points to go around the conference yesterday, as some teams are proving themselves, others are proving to become disappointments, and others are proving we don’t know what to expect.

The Thundering Herd thundered over Old Dominion, who have really tailed off after an impressive road win against Rice to open C-USA play. Marshall QB Rakeem Cato threw for just under 200 yards, while running back Devon Johnson rushed for the same number that Cato threw for – 198. The Herd defense limited ODU quarterback Taylor Heinicke to 85 yards passing, and 286 total Monarch yards. This was also Marshall’s first C-USA game of the year.

2370. 31. 2385. Final. 37


Nick Mullens

setting a Southern Miss record for completions (36), on the road no less, the Golden Eagles would fall just short of the Blue Raiders, and the MTBR’s are sitting pretty at 3-0. Mullens would throw for 426 yards and three touchdowns as well. Both teams eclipsed over 500 yards of offense.

The Mean Green allowed 21 first quarter points and couldn’t recover, as the Hoosiers come away with the blowout victory.

Dajon Williams

tossed for 205 yards for North Texas, and found

Carlos Harris

11 times for 120 yards. No other Mean Green receiver had more than one catch.

It was a season that started with such high hopes for UTSA, but boy, have they really fallen off the wagon. They now sit at 1-4 after dropping what appears to have been an ugly game all around. Only three points were scored in the entire first half, a Roadrunner field goal, and three straight Lobos’ scores would seal the deal. UTSA would finish the day with 341 yards of offense, but failed to have a 100 yard rusher or receiver.

The Owls held Hawaii to just two scores, one in the first and another in the third, and relied on two touchdown passes from Driphus Jackson and two rushing touchdowns from Darik Dillard to move to 2-3 on the year. Jackson would complete just 10 passes, but for 248 yards, and Dillard ate up 141 yards on 23 rushes.

What very well could be the surprising score of the day, the Bulldogs just absolutely laid it on the Miners, and scored in every single quarter, including two quarters of 20 or more points.

Cody Sokol

completed just six passes but for 173 yards and


touchdowns, and the Miners’ defense allowed 443 total yards.

UAB turned the ball over again, three more times to be exact, but

Jordan Howard

proved to be too much for the Hilltopper defense, who played uninspired and couldn’t tackle to save their lives.

Ace Wales

proved the be the number one back in front of

Leon Allen

for the Tops, but the newcomers have yet to win a conference game, and are back below .500.
