Weekend Wrap

October 25, 1993

NAVY (4-3)

This Saturday: Notre Dame, at Veterans Stadium, Philadelphia, noon.

Previous game: Navy's faint bowl hopes all but disappeared with a 28-0 loss at Louisville in the first meeting between the schools. It was the 11th straight road loss for the Midshipmen, who must win their four remaining Division I games to qualify for the Liberty Bowl. Navy wasted repeated scoring chances against the Cardinals, driving inside the Louisville 35 six times. Dave Gwinn missed field-goal attempts of 42 and 32 yards in the second quarter. Navy controlled the ball for 36:30, but could not stop Louisville's quick strikes through the air. No. 2 Notre Dame beat USC, 31-13.

Key statistics: Junior QB Jim Kubiak completed 31 of 51 passes for 300 yards and shattered single-season Academy marks for completions (171) and yardage (1,845), eclipsing the records set by Bill Byrne in 1985.

MARYLAND (1-6)

This Saturday: Clemson, Memorial Stadium, Clemson, S.C., noon.

Previous game: Maryland was idle. Clemson beat West Tennessee State, 27-0.

TOWSON STATE (5-1)

This Saturday: At Hofstra, Hofstra Stadium, Hempstead, N.Y., 1 p.m.

Previous game: The Tigers wasted no time rebounding from last week's tough, 44-41 loss to Howard by ripping off the first 24 points, en route to a 38-14 victory at Buffalo. Hofstra was idle.

Key statistics: Towson State running back Tony Vinson continued his assault of the Tigers' record book. He rushed 30 times for 209 yards, the fourth time in 14 games at Towson State that he has broken the 200-yard mark. Vinson has gained 1,062 yards this year, a single-season record. And with every yard, he adds to the school's career rushing mark. QB Dan Crowley also kept up his torrid pace, by completing 22 of 37 passes for 250 yards and three TDs. He has thrown one interception in six games. The Tigers held Hofstra to 34 yards rushing.

MORGAN STATE (2-5)

This Saturday: At Florida A&M, Bragg Memorial Stadium, Tallahassee, Fla., 2 p.m.

Previous game: The Bears suffered their 10th straight loss against the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Their defense collapsed, giving up nine unanswered touchdowns, as Delaware State rolled to a 65-42 victory. Florida A&M lost to Albany (Ga.), 14-6.

Key statistics: Delaware State's run-powered offense did nothing wrong. The Hornets rushed for 497 yards, piled up 489 net yards by halftime and generally did as they pleased against the Bears. Three Hornets running backs -- Aaron Spears, Phil Anderson and Bert Watson -- gained more than 100 yards. The Bears fared well against Delaware State's reserve players in the second half. Jesse Humphrey caught nine passes for 206 yards and has caught at least one TD pass in every game this year.

BOWIE STATE (2-5-1)

This Saturday: Fayetteville State, Bulldog Stadium, Bowie, 1 p.m.

Previous game: The Bulldogs experienced the high point of their season with a 24-13 upset of Winston-Salem, which entered as the second-best team in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association. Fayetteville State beat Johnson C. Smith, 40-6.

Key statistics: Senior defensive back Dwayne Zackery turned the tide of a game that was 7-7 at intermission. First, Zackery returned a punt 63 yards to set up the go-ahead score in the third quarter. Then, he intercepted a pass and returned it 50 yards for the first defensive touchdown of his career to clinch the victory. Bowie State held Winston-Salem to 219 yards. Monte Bennett rushed 20 times for 127 yards.

JOHNS HOPKINS (4-3)

This Saturday: At Dickinson, Biddle Field, Carlisle, Pa., 1:30 p.m.

Previous game: The Blue Jays had trouble sticking the ball in the end zone, but thanks to a record-setting night by freshman RB Chuck Wotkowicz, they were able to escape with a 19-17 victory against Georgetown. Dickinson beat Swarthmore, 37-0.

Key statistics: The Hopkins offensive had some trouble protecting QB John Guglielmo -- he was sacked five times -- but the Blue Jays opened plenty of wide holes for Wotkowicz. Making his first start at tailback, Wotkowicz, substituting for the injured Hari Lymon and Rob Beach, rushed 45 times for a school-record 347 yards and two TDs. Guglielmo completed 12 of 25 passes for 158 yards and scored a TD. The Blue Jays held the ball for over 36 minutes. Georgetown DT Jim Klessel had eight tackles, forced a fumble, broke up a pass and had 1 1/2 sacks.

FROSTBURG STATE (7-0)

This Saturday: At Brockport State, Special Olympics Stadium, Brockport, N.Y., 1:30 p.m.

Previous game: The Bobcats, no strangers to starting fast this season, bolted to a 28-0 lead against Bridgewater, then cruised to a 35-0 victory. Brockport State beat St. John Fisher, 23-20.
