CCSU 22 Columbia 13
Why CCSU Won
The avoided the worst when they weren't doing much right and only had a 13-0 deficit to overcome when things turned around. Most importantly, the coaches made a QB change, and reliever Aubrey Norris lit up the Lions with his amazing quickness and good decision making.
Why Columbia Lost
With everything going their way through most of the first half, they only had a 13-0 lead. The defense played mostly well, but finally wilted under the relentless varied Blue Devil running attack.
Key Turning Points
-They don't get more obvious than the Lion PAT attempt blocked and returned for a 2-point score by CCSU to make it 13-2. The Blue Devils never looked back, but the amazing Norris 28-yard TD run to make it 13-9 at the half. was the first big strike on offense.
I think Ray Rangel and Marc Holloway have to share the honor this week. Rangel had some huge runs and a TD to finish with 130 yards on just 10 carries. Holloway was seemingly in on every play and finished with 18 tackles.
