Freshman QB leads Georgetown to win

November 3, 2013 

Making his first start, freshman quarterback Cody Wolfe led Georgetown on three straight touchdown drives in the first quarter, and the Tigers coasted to a 49-7 victory over visiting Bluefield (Va.) on Saturday.

Wolfe was 11-for-18 passing for 162 yards and one interception.

"Cody played very well considering the circumstances and throwing him to the wolves so to speak," Georgetown Coach Bill Cronin said. "It was awesome to see him step in like that."

Georgetown (5-3, 3-1 Mid-South) scored two touchdowns on defense — a 65-yard interception return by Dylan Sims and a 48-yard fumble return by Arthur Pollard.

Drake 56, Morehead State 14: Andy Rice tossed a career-high five touchdown passes and ran for another score to lead host Drake (5-4, 4-2 Pioneer Football League) over Morehead State (3-6, 3-3). Each of Rice's five touchdown passes were caught by a different receiver.

Morehead State was held to 82 yards rushing. Quarterback Austin Gahafer completed just 16 of 34 passes for the Eagles and threw two interceptions.

Lane 38, Kentucky State 28: Chris Rini threw five touchdown passes to lead host Lane (5-4, 2-3 SIAC) over Kentucky State (4-5, 1-4). The Thorobreds pulled within 24-21 on a Jacquise Lockett touchdown early in the fourth quarter before Lane pulled away. Lockett, the SIAC's leading rusher, had 105 yards and three touchdowns.

UT Martin 45, Murray State 17: Jarod Neal threw three touchdowns on 245 yards passing and added a rushing touchdown as host Tennessee-Martin pulled away from Murray State. The Skyhawks (6-3, 4-2 Ohio Valley Conference) scored four unanswered touchdowns to break a halftime tie and secure the win.

The Racers (5-4, 3-2) led 14-0 in the first quarter after a defensive score and a 26-yard touchdown run from Jaamal Berry, who rushed for 134 yards.
