Calhoun Beats Tuloso-Midway Going Away

The Calhoun Sandcrabs started Friday night tied for the district lead, and they helped their cause with a big win over Tuloso-Midway at Sandcrab Stadium.

Despite a hot start for the Warriors, the Sandcrabs won convincingly at home on Friday, 56-14 to improve their overall record to 5-1 on the season and 3-0 in district. Tuloso-Midway scored the contest’s first 14 points – two touchdowns that sandwiched a successful onside kick – before Calhoun got on the board and ran wild.

Next up for the Sandcrabs will be a trip to Floresville next Friday to take on the Tigers.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Coby Weiss made a 22-yard field goal with 2 seconds left and No. 23 South Florida scored 17 points in the final 7:10 to beat Tulsa 25-24 on Friday night.

Blake Barnett set up the winning field goal with a 32-yard strike to Tyre McCants to the 5.

Barnett scored on 1- and 12-yard runs to pull the Bulls (6-0, 2-0 American Athletic Conference) within two with 2:10 to go, but was stopped on a two-point conversion run.

USF forced Tulsa (1-5, 0-3) into a three-and-out, giving the Bulls the ball back with 1:03 remaining on their own 43 with no timeouts left.

Jordan Cronkrite, who set a USF and AAC record with 302 yards last week at UMass, rushed for 151 yards on 25 carries. But outside of a 66-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter that evened it at 10, Cronkrite didn’t do a lot of damage.

Barnett completed 17 of 39 passes for 237 yards.

Tulsa’s Seth Boomer was 6 of 21 for 71 yards.


Tulsa almost won the game due to not turning the ball over, combined with a strong defense. Coming into the game, Tulsa ranked last in FBS in turnovers and turnovers per game, and sixth-to-last in turnover margin.


South Florida would have almost certainly dropped out of the Top 25 after losing to a Tulsa team that had not won a FBS game all season.


USF: Hosts UConn on Oct. 20.

Tulsa: At Arkansas on Oct. 20.
