Air Force Hazik Daniels broke the longest run of the weekend when he covered 94 yards for a touchdown against the Florida Atlantic.
It was the longest by a Football Bowl subdivision quarterback in 18 years.
Daniels’ big run was the second of his two touchdowns in the 31–7 victory and the longest in the program’s history, breaking the 50-year-old record of 88 yards held by Joel Carlson against Cena.
The last quarterback to ever run was Rice’s Kyle Harm, who went for 95 yards against Nevada in 2003.
Army quarterback Christian Anderson scored a career-best 236 yards on 15 carries against Miami (Ohio).
Northwestern’s Evan Hull had only a 200-yard game, playing 22 times for 216 against Ohio. Hull’s 90-yard TD run was Northwestern’s longest since Bill Swingle covered 95 yards against Boston College in 1961.
Bulldog is a bowler
Fresno State’s Jalen Cropper joined some elite company by catching four touchdown passes against UNLV.
He is one of four players in the program’s history to achieve the feat, a list that includes Davante Adams, who is now with the Green Bay Packers.
Cropper has a TD in six straight games, becoming the first Fresno State player to do so, as Adams scored in nine consecutive games in the 2012–13 season.
The baller to Cropper was Jake Heiner, whose five TD passes against UNLV were the most in a game by a Bulldogs player since Derek Carr did so in 2013.
busy road runner
Honest McCormick’s 42 carry for UTSA against Memphis was not in a triple-option offense by a player in five years.
McCormick ran for 184 yards and three touchdowns and caught three balls for 33 yards in the Roadrunner’s 31–28 victory. It was his third 100-yard game of the season and the event-best 13th game of his career.
Air Force’s Isaiah Sanders and Georgia Tech’s Tacon Marshall made 44 appearances in a game in 2017, but they played in substitute offenses in which passes were rare.
Take those two players out of the equation, and McCormick had the highest number of carries since Texas’ D’Onta Foreman raced 51 times against Kansas in 2016.
twice as nice
Jameson Williams became the first Alabama player to return two kickoffs for a touchdown.
He went back to the opening kickoff for 100 yards against southern Mississippi, and he returned for 83 yards in the fourth quarter. Williams also had an 81-yard touchdown reception and finished with 258 all-purpose yards.
Samford’s Liam Welch threw for 582 yards and scored 655 yards of the total offense against East Tennessee State, the highest total in the championship subdivision in eight years.
The last FCS player to enter this type of number was Stephen F. Austin’s Brady Ataway, who threw for 662 yards and, with a run of minus-7 yards, had 655 in total offense against Prairie View in 2013.
