By Richard Walker
Several local products performed on college football gridirons, including a former South Point High standout who had a career night.
Here’s a look at how it all transpired:
Georgia 45, South Carolina 16: Nick Muse (2017 South Point High graduate) had career-highs of eight catches for 131 yards and also caught a touchdown pass in South Carolina’s loss. The Gamecocks (2-7) finish up their season next Saturday at Kentucky.
East Carolina 52, SMU 38: Chris Willis (Crest 2016) started at defensive end and made one tackle and Aaron Ramseur (Crest 2016) played reserve linebacker as East Carolina won its final regular season game. The Pirates finished 3-6 overall and 3-5 in the American Athletic Conference.
Clemson 52, Pittsburgh 17: Lannden Zanders (Crest 2019) and Justin Foster (Crest 2017) didn’t play for the Tigers (8-1, 7-1), who play next Saturday at Virginia Tech.
N.C. State 36, Syracuse 29: Jaylon Scott (Shelby 2019) played reserve linebacker for the Wolfpack (7-3, 6-3), which hosts Georgia Tech next Saturday.
Missouri 41, Vanderbilt 0: History was made in major college football when Vanderbilt’s Sarah Fuller kicked off to open the second half of her team’s home loss. Fuller, who just helped her school win the SEC women’s soccer title as a goalkeeper, became the first female to play in a power five college football game.
Vanderbilt had lost its previous starting kicker due to COVID-19 issues.
