Coach Ken Niumatalolo said Navy had to play perfectly in order to have a chance to beat fifth-ranked Ohio State. The Midshipmen put forth a valiant effort against a powerhouse opponent, but one that was far from perfect. Navy was in the game the whole way and even led on two occasions, but costly mistakes spoiled hopes for an upset. An 80-yard scoring strike from quarterback J.T. Barrett to wide receiver Devin Smith and a 61-yard fumble return for touchdown by linebacker Darron Lee were the big plays as Ohio State pulled away for a 34-17 victory over Navy in front of 57,579 fans at M&T Bank Stadium.

Though the weather was a tad too nippy for the record crowd of 85,711 to start sweating, it was becoming a bit too close and a little too familiar."We didn't really bring up negatives," Florida coach Steve Spurrier said later.

The Blast had a difficult time finishing off scoring chances for much of Saturday's game against the visiting Wichita Wings, enabling them to hang around long enough to make it appear that they might leave 1st Mariner Arena with a win. But Blast rookie forward Marco Mangione changed all that with one poised touch early in the fourth quarter. Shortly after the Wings tied the game with six straight points, Mangione skillfully chested a ball to his left foot and then perfectly placed a volley to the near post to give the home team the lead back.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland gave fourth-ranked Duke its biggest deficit of the season and a huge scare in the first half. In the end, though, the Terrapins couldn't give the Blue Devils what a sellout crowd at Comcast Center wanted most: Duke's first loss of the Atlantic Coast Conference season. Quickly overcoming a nine-point halftime deficit and eventually turning it into a nine-point lead, the Blue Devils held off a late rally by the Terps and held on for a 93-84 victory. It prevented Maryland from scoring two top-5 upsets in eight days.

The Blast's effort in last night's game against Kansas City left coach Tim Wittman both bewildered and frustrated. Wittman loved how his team dominated play in the second half. But Kansas City took advantage of a very flat Blast first half, eventually taking a four-goal, third-period lead and holding on for an 8-7 victory before 7,312 at the 1st Mariner Arena. The defeat left Wittman wondering about his team's effort in its third consecutive loss. "Not good enough in the first half," Wittman said.
