In a 45-17 win over Wisconsin, Indiana senior Anthony Thompson rushed for 377 yards on 52 carries to break the Division I record of 357 set by Rueben Mayes at Washington State in '84. Thompson's four TDs gave him a career-record 64.
Alabama linebacker Keith McCants, a junior, made 11 solo tackles—including a six-yard sack—assisted on four others and broke up a pass, as the Crimson Tide moved a step closer to the Sugar Bowl with a 32-16 win over LSU.
Tailback Scott Bailey, a junior from Buena Vista in Storm Lake, Iowa, ran for 350 yards and a Division III-record six TDs in a 59-26 win over Dubuque. Bailey is only the second Beaver to gain 1,000 yards in a season since 1898.
