Salisbury had 219 rushing yards in the loss, led by 90 from Valdase Morris.

Frostburg State 14, Westminster 6 -- The host Bobcats picked up their second win of the season behind a career-high 121 yards from Antoine Lewis (City).

But Ursinus (6-2) marched 72 yards on its ensuing possession for the go-ahead score.

Franklin & Marshall 31, McDaniel 7 -- The Diplomats drove 76 yards on 11 plays on their opening possession and never trailed as they romped over the visiting Green Terror.
