Terrance West became the Towson football program's career rushing leader with a career-high 272 yards on 29 carries in Saturday's 48-32 victory over Richmond. To some degree, the junior running back owes a good deal of his success to the five guys who open holes for him. Senior left tackle Eric Pike, senior left guard Anthony Davis, senior center Doug Shaw, freshman right guard Sam Evans and senior right tackle Randall Harris have helped the No. 8 Tigers rank 14th in the Football Championship Subdivision in rushing, averaging 237.9 yards and scoring a nation-best 32 touchdowns on the ground.

The Tigers (11-2) did not learn until Sunday morning that they would face the Panthers (12-1) at O'Brien Field in Charleston, Ill., at 8 p.m. Snow and freezing rain have hampered the team's ability to practice Sunday and Monday, and the school is still waiting for notification from the NCAA about its travel plans.

In trying to sum up the past five years, Rob Ambrose thought back to his introductory press conference as Towson University's football coach. "I said, 'If we hadn't won some ball games by year three, I hope they had [a] good furniture budget, because I was going to break something,'" he recalled. By the time Ambrose was hired, the university and its boosters had become accustomed to such gung-ho talk from new coaches, few of whom delivered the winning programs Towson sought. "He came off to me as maybe a little too optimistic about what he could do," former Towson president Robert L. Caret said with a chuckle.
