Ryan Granger’s 30-yard field goal as time expired lifted top-ranked Coastal Carolina to a 23-20 win over Monmouth at Monmouth Stadium in West Long Branch, NJ. The Chanticleers (7-0, 2-0 Big South) hold on to the top spot in the rankings, just barely, after being pushed to the limit by the host Hawks. De’Angelo Henderson rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown, extending his FCS-record touchdown streak to 21 games, and Alex Ross passed for 282 yards and rushed for another score.

The Leathernecks (4-3, 3-1 MVFC) kept the game close through the third quarter as Trenton Norvell passed for 313 yards and two touchdowns, one to Lance Lenoir, who caught 11 passes for 131 yards.

Jacksonville State stayed perfect in the Ohio Valley conference after waltzing to a 27-7 win over winless Austin Peay in Clarksville, TN. The Gamecocks (6-1, 4-0) put the damper on the home team’s Homecoming Day festivities at Governors Stadium as Eli Jenkins passed for 189 yards and rushed for a score in the first half and Miles Jones and Troymaine Pope added rushing touchdowns while the defense held the Governors (0-8, 0-5 OVC) to a paltry 82 yards of offense on the day.

Fourth-ranked James Madison dropped their first game of the season, a 59-49 shootout with #8 Richmond at Bridgeforth Stadium in Harrisonburg, VA. The Dukes (7-1, 4-1 CAA) received a huge effort from Vad Lee, who threw for 294 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 124 yards and three more scores. However, the dual-threat quarterback was overshadowed by the Spiders’ (6-1, 4-0 CAA) dynamic duo of Kyle Lauletta and Jacobi Green, who led the way to a program-record 720 yards of offense. Lauletta passed for 415 yards and two scores while Green tore the Dukes’ defense to shreds by rushing for 236 yards and five touchdowns. Richmond, also, had two receivers surpass the 100-yard mark on the day as Brian Brown caught seven passes for 204 yards and a touchdown while Reggie Diggs added six catches for 128 yards.

South Dakota State, ranked fifth, fell to (5-2, 2-2 MVFC) after a 10-7 loss to #22 Northern Iowa in Brookings, SD. The Jackrabbits were held to 259 yards of offense at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium while the Panthers (3-4, 1-3 MVFC) rode the running attack of dual-threat quarterback Aaron Bailey, who dashed for 169 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries and passed for 117 yards. Taryn Christion rushed for 61 of South Dakota State’s 95 ground yards while passing for 156 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

Jordan Dascalo’s 44-yard field goal at the final gun made a winner out of 6th-ranked Eastern Washington, 43-41 over Northern Colorado in Greeley, CO. Cooper Kupp had a record-setting day for the Eagles (5-2, 4-0 Big Sky) with 20 receptions for 275 yards, both school records, and three touchdowns. In 35 games, Kupp has scored 52 touchdowns, six shy of the FCS record and became the Big Sky’s all-time leader in receptions and receiving yards.
