College Football: Saturday’s roundup

Associated Press
Saturday’s roundup …
PHILADELPHIA ó Navy has turned sports’ most patriotic rivalry a lopsided one.
The Mids beat Army 17-3 on Saturday for their eighth straight win in the series. The loss eliminated the Black Knights’ shot at playing in their first bowl game since 1996.
The Mids (9-4) already have a postseason date against Missouri in the Texas Bowl on Dec. 31.
Ricky Dobbs ran for a score to set an NCAA single-season record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback with 24, and threw for a TD to help Navy improve to 54-49-7 overall against Army for its biggest lead in a series that began in 1890.
Navy won the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy, awarded annually to the team with the best record in games between the three service academies, for a school-record seventh straight year.
Army (5-7) would have played in the EagleBank Bowl with a win. That matchup is now Temple vs. UCLA.
SWAC
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. ó Prairie View A&M, a program once synonymous with football futility, is a conference champion for the first time in 45 years.
K.J. Black threw for 258 yards and three touchdowns, two coming in the fourth quarter, and the Panthers ralllied for a 30-24 win over Alabama A&M in the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship game on Saturday.
DIVISION II
FLORENCE, Ala. ó Northwest Missouri State running back LaRon Council says he’ll never forget the feeling of losing a national championship game.
Now, he has something to take the place of that bad memory.
Council rushed for 172 yards and two touchdowns to lead Northwest Missouri to the NCAA Division II championship with a 30-23 win over Grand Valley State on Saturday.
The Bearcats (14-1) won their first title since 1998 and ended a string of four consecutive losses in the national championship game.
Council scored twice within the first 18 minutes.
DIVISION III
ALLIANCE, Ohio ó Cecil Shorts caught a touchdown pass and ran for two TDs, leading Mount Union to a 24-7 win over Wesley in the Division III semifinals Saturday.
The Purple Raiders (14-0) extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 29 games and advanced to the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl next Saturday for the 13th time.
They’ll face Wisconsin-Whitewater, who defeated Linfield 27-17, in the final next Saturday in Salem, Va.
