NC FBS Week 13 Scoreboard

Week 13:

Pirates Get Tagged by Tigers

East Carolina (3-9, 3-6) 13
#20 Memphis (10-1, 7-1) 70

In their last game of the season, and perhaps Scottie Montgomery’s last as head coach, ECU got trounced in Memphis. Gardner Minshew came back down to Earth and tossed three interceptions. To make matters worse Memphis outgained East Carolina 635-466 and didn’t commit a turnover. ECU never had a chance. Despite Minshew’s struggles, Trevon Brown continued to shine. The junior from Wilmington caught seven passes for 128 yards.

”This probably was the best team we’ve played to this point, and it’s going to be an interesting championship game,” Pirate coach Scottie Montgomery said. ”That’s a championship team we just watched. In this league, there’s going to be teams with speed, and then there’s the rest of the group,” Montgomery added. ”I think we can play with a lot of the teams that are not these speed teams, but (speed teams) expose you…Today, was a really, really clear sight of that.”


Devils Down Deacons

Duke (6-6, 3-3) 31
Wake Forest (7-5, 4-4) 23

It came down to their last opportunity, but David Cutcliffe’s Blue Devils are bowl-eligible. Despite being down 10-0 after one quarter, Duke was able to come back and top Wake Forest in Winston-Salem. The Blue Devils held a clear advantage in total yards, time of possession, and first downs. Though he threw three interceptions, Daniel Jones was 25 for 44 on pass attempts for 346 yards and two touchdowns. On the other side, John Wolford struggled just a bit more. Wolford threw for 191 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions on 16/33 passing. 

“Today we were better on third down,” Duke QB Daniel Jones said. “That’s big. Against an ACC team, you have to be able to convert third down. Also in the red zone, we’ve been better at converting our opportunities into touchdowns.”

“Whatever you want to say, they outplayed us, out-prepared us, outcoached us, they just out-executed us and they deserved to win the game. We didn’t.” – Wake Head Coach Dave Clawson


Mountaineers Pounce on Panthers

Appalachian State (7-4, 6-1) 31
Georgia State (6-4, 5-2) 10

Jalin Moore racked up 239 yards rushing. That was all App State needed as they kept their Sun Belt Title dreams alive with a win over Georgia State. Moore’s awesome day included a massive 58-yard run that the Mountaineers capitalized on for a touchdown. On the very next drive, A.J. Howard intercepted a Connor Manning pass and returned the ball 61 yards. Two plays later ASU was in the end zone to extend the lead to three possessions.

“We really challenged our offensive line today to come out here and run the football against a team that didn’t give up many rushing yards. I think we ended up with probably the most rushing yards they’ve given up all year today.” – ASU Head Coach Scott Satterfield


Charlotte’s Season Ends at the Hand of Kiffen and Owls

Florida Atlantic (9-3, 8-0) 31
UNC-Charlotte (1-11, 1-7) 12

Charlotte’s dreadful season is finally over. The Niner’s final loss of the season came to the Florida Atlantic Owls who outgained Charlotte 563-255 despite two turnovers to UNCC’s zero. It was clear, from beginning to end Florida Atlantic was the superior team in this contest. 

“Yeah, no question, no doubt about it,” UNCC Head Coach Lambert said Saturday after the game, when asked if he thought he was still the right coach for the 49ers. “We’ve started fast and everybody wants more wins. I want more wins. We don’t come to work 14-hour days to lose, I promise you that. But there’s no doubt I’m the right guy for this place. We come in with the right attitude to represent this university in the right fashion,” Lambert added. “We need a better record next year. We’ve got to continually grow and move forward and win games.”


Hines Torches Heels

North Carolina (3-9, 1-7) 21
NC State (8-4, 6-2) 33

Despite UNC’s two-game win streak, NC State cooled off the Tar Heels Saturday. Nyheim Hines is simply a baller. The junior from Garner tallied a career-high 196 yards on 22 carries and two touchdowns. Ryan Finley added two rushing touchdowns of his own. For the Heels, Anthony Ratliff-Williams continued his fantastic sophomore season with five receptions for 131 yards and a touchdown. 

“Growing up here, it’s just really important for me to play in this game. I knew I would not miss this game for anything. I’d basically have to break an arm or a leg not to play.” – Nyheim Hines

“He told me on Sunday, ‘They’re going to have to amputate parts of my body for me not to play against Carolina.” – NC State Head Coach Dave Doeren
