MOBILE, Ala. ó Tulsa raced to another GMAC Bowl win and a couple more records, too.
Tarrion Adams rushed for 207 yards and three touchdowns in the 45-13 win over No. 23 Ball State on a soggy Tuesday night. The Golden Hurricane (11-3) finished with a school-record 11 victories.
Adams passed Micheal Gunter to become Tulsa’s career rushing leader. Tulsa had 439 yards rushing and 632 overall ó hardly slowing down a bit by rain that first formed puddles and then covered nearly the entire field during a second-half deluge.
N.C. STATE
RALEIGHó North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson won’t need surgery to repair the knee he injured in the Papajohns.com Bowl.
School officials said Tuesday that an MRI this week confirmed doctors’ initial diagnosis of a sprained knee and a torn posterior cruciate ligament.
The Atlantic Coast Conference rookie of the year didn’t return after he was hurt in the second quarter of the Wolfpack’s 29-23 loss to Rutgers.
BOSTON COLLEGE
BOSTON ó Boston College’s Jeff Jagodzinski met with New York Jets officials Tuesday to discuss their head coaching vacancy ó an interview that was expected to cost him his job with the Eagles.
Jagodzinski, who became BC’s coach in 2007, was told by athletic director Gene DeFilippo that he would be fired if he met with the NFL team.
“It’s just a matter of putting two and two together,” Chris Cameron, BC’s associate director for media relations, said Tuesday night. “He was told by Gene on Saturday that if he went on the interview he’d be fired.”
PRESBYTERIAN
CLINTON, S.C. ó Presbyterian football coach Bobby Bentley has stepped down to become offensive coordinator at his old high school.
Bentley also will become athletic director and public relations director at Spartanburg School District 5. He told his players of his decision on Tuesday. He says he wants to spend more time with his family.
Bentley went 10-13 in two seasons as the Blue Hose move to Division I. He won four straight state titles as head coach at Byrnes High School before coming to Presbyterian.
Presbyterian has named offensive line coach Doug Malone interim head coach. Malone ran the Blue Hose offense in 2008 after spending a year as offensive coordinator at Western Carolina and eight years as offensive coordinator, interim head coach and assistant athletic director at Tennessee Tech.
