Illinois fullback Howard Griffith set an NCAA record for most TDs in a game by scoring eight in the mini's 56-21 rout of Southern Illinois. The old mark of seven was established by Arnold (Showboat) Boykin in 1951.
Chris Mitchell, Mississippi's senior strong safety, made a career-high 21 tackles, including a game-saving stop on the Rebel goal line as time expired, to lead Ole Miss to a 21-17 upset of Arkansas.
Edward Fletcher, a sophomore at Fort Scott ( Kans.) Community College, passed for 496 yards and four touchdowns in a 70-27 romp over Hutchinson ( Kans.) C.C. that raised the Greyhounds' record to 4-0.
