Lines of the Night 8/31

As promised, your lines of the night.

Nate Davis, Ball State
Passing: 7-8 passing, 108 yards, 3 touchdowns, 0 interceptions
Rushing: 1 attempt, 7 yards, 0 touchdowns

When you throw three times as many touchdowns as incompletions, you know you've had quite a night. Davis, a freshman, split time with incumbant Joey Lynch, and helped lead Ball State to a 38-20 victory over Eastern Michigan.

Running Back
Marcus Thomas, UTEP
Rushing: 17 attempts, 24 yards, 1 touchdown
Receiving: 4 catches, 17 yards, 0 touchdowns

Definitely not the best rushing line of the night, but one of the more unique. Thomas had a 19 yard run for the Miners along with a 5 yard touchdown run. On his other 15 rushes, he gained as many yards as you and I. But the Miners won, so he shouldn't lose too much sleep.

Receiver/Tight End
Alex Watson, Northern Arizona
Rushing: 1 attempt, 8 yards, 0 touchdowns
Receiving: 11 catches, 206 yards, 2 touchdowns

Yo Holmes. Watson helped the Lumberjacks hang with the Sun Devils for 3 quarters before they finally wilting in the desert. Even if you subtract his 80 yard touchdown catch, he still has a nice line of 10-126-1.
