College Bowl Update, WVU Routed By Kansas, WFT Flexes To 4:05
In college bowl action yesterday, Nevada QB Carson Strong threw 5 touchdown passes as the Wolfpack held off Tulane 38-27 in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. In the Boca Raton Bowl, number-16 BYU piled up 655 yards of total offense as the Cougars routed UCF 49-23.
Today’s bowl action, it’s Georgia Southern versus Louisiana in the New Orleans Bowl at 3:30, while Florida Atlantic takes on Memphis in the Montgomery Bowl at 7.
In college hoop, number-16 Virginia improved to 5-1 with a 76-40 win over William & Mary. Trey Murphy III led the Hoos with 15 points.
Number-3 Kansas rolled past 7th-ranked WVU last night 79-65. The Jayhawks erased a one-point halftime deficit by outscoring the Mountaineers 44-29 in the second half. Kansas shot a blistering 43 percent from behind the arc.
And, the NFL has “flexed” the Sunday game between the Washington Football Team and the Carolina Panthers to 4:05 at Fed-Ex Field. A Washington win coupled with a Giants loss at 1 against the Ravens would give them the NFC East title.
