College Football

October 30, 2004|By Bill Free

Bowie State (4-5) at J.C. Smith (0-9)

Site: Charlotte (N.C.) Memorial Stadium

Time: 1 p.m.

Series: Johnson C. Smith leads 12-7

Last week: Bowie beat Va. Union, 19-13; J.C. Smith lost to Winston-Salem State, 31-20.

Outlook: Senior defensive back Atcheson Conway plays his final game for the Bulldogs today. The co-captain and All-American leads the team in tackles.

Wesley (6-1) at Salisbury (7-0)

Site: Sea Gull Stadium, Salisbury

Time: 1 p.m.

Radio: WICO (1320 AM in Salisbury)

Series: Wesley leads 8-6

Last week: Salisbury was idle; Wesley beat SUNY-Brockport, 24-17.

Outlook: The Sea Gulls, who climbed from ninth to sixth in the American Football Coaches Association poll despite being idle last weekend, can wrap up their first Atlantic Central Football Conference title. Wesley is 4-0 in league play; Salisbury is 3-0.

Westminster (3-4) at Frostburg State (2-5)

Site: Bobcat Stadium, Frostburg

Time: 1 p.m.

Series: Westminster leads 7-1-1

Last week: Frostburg State beat Maryville, 22-0; Westminster lost to Thiel, 28-0.

Outlook: The Bobcats' Mike Kitchen has rushed for 263 yards in the past two games.

McDaniel (5-1) at Fr. & Marshall (4-3)

Site: Sponaugle-Williamson Field, Lancaster, Pa.

Time: 1 p.m.

Radio: WTTR (1470 AM in Westminster)

Series: F&M leads 19-16-2

Last week: McDaniel was idle; F&M lost to Dickinson, 17-14.

Outlook: McDaniel remains unbeaten (3-0) in Centennial Conference play but has three tough league games remaining. McDaniel has outscored three conference opponents, 101-10, and its past four foes, 135-10, posting three shutouts. Junior linebacker Ron Ringgold leads the defense with 48 tackles.

Johns Hopkins (5-2) at Ursinus (1-6)

Site: Patterson Field, Collegeville, Pa.

Time: 1 p.m.

Series: Hopkins leads 27-15-3

Last week: Hopkins lost to Muhlenberg, 9-6; Ursinus lost to Gettysburg, 14-0.

Outlook: The Hopkins offense went sour last week in a crucial league game despite the presence of the Centennial Conference's leading passer (Zach DiIonno) and leading receiver (Anthony Triplin). Now the Blue Jays (2-2 in the league) must win their final two league games and hope that McDaniel falters down the stretch to gain a share of the title. Ursinus has lost 15 straight league games.

William & Mary (5-2) at Towson (3-4)

Site: Johnny Unitas Stadium

Time: 6 p.m.

Radio: WTMD (89.7 FM)

Series: W&M leads 1-0

Last week: Towson lost to Villanova, 41-6; W&M lost to Delaware, 31-28.

Outlook: Towson appears to be in for another long afternoon in the Atlantic 10, the new league in which it is 0-2. Towson does have the leading pass defense in Division I-AA, yielding 119.1 yards a game, and a standout roverback in senior P.D. Moore who leads the team with 37 solo tackles. William & Mary had won five in a row before last week's loss. - Bill Free
