After Prophit's run put the Flyers ahead, Indiana State drove deep into Dayton territory on its ensuing drive but Dayton's Zach Rumpe intercepted a pass at the eight-yard line to secure the victory. Prophit and quarterback Jack Cook each ran for two touchdowns in the win, Cook also throwing a pair of touchdown passes as part of a 21-for-29, 251-yard outing.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Marist could not overcome a four-turnover day in a 43-3 loss to Georgetown, Saturday, at Cooper Field.  Marist got on the board courtesy Luke Paladino's 36-yard field goal with 8:51 left in the second quarter. However, Georgetown responded with a touchdown on its ensuing drive then forced turnovers on Marist's final two possessions of the first half, scoring a touchdown to extend its lead to 22-3 at the half and never looked back. Quarterback Austin Day completed 12-of-19 passes for 149 yards to pace the Marist offense.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – San Diego saw a potential game-winning drive thwarted by a fumble at the one-yard line as time expired and UC Davis escaped with a 38-35 victory, Saturday, at Torero Stadium. After holding the Aggies to a field goal to start the fourth quarter, San Diego took its only lead of the contest on the game's next drive as Reid Sinnett found Dalton Kincaid for a 10-yard touchdown pass completion for a 35-31 lead. UC Davis responded with a 14-play, 81-yard scoring drive to retake the lead with 3:35 left. San Diego would drive the length of the field on its final possession, covering 91 yards in 14 plays, but UC Davis would force a fumble at the one-yard line and recover it in the end zone to end the game. Sinnett completed 23-of-33 passes for 239 yards and two touchdowns while Emilio Martinez ran for 115 yards and a touchdown to lead San Diego.
