POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Chuckie Looney threw five touchdown passes to lead Marist over Jacksonville 42-35 on Saturday.
Looney was 26-of-36 and 362 yards. He holds the Red Foxes' career records for passing yards, passing touchdowns, completions and attempts. Atiq Lucas rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. The win puts Marist (6-3, 5-1 Pioneer) in a 3-way conference tie for first place with Sand Diego and Butler.
The Marist defense blunted five consecutive Dolphin drives in the first half. But Jacksonville (4-5, 3-3) came alive with just over two minutes left in the second quarter on a pair of touchdown passes by Kade Bell on back-to-back possessions, one for 93 yards and another for 14 yards to knot the halftime score at 21-21.
Looney answered with three more touchdowns in the second half, two to game-leading receiver Armani Martin, frustrating the Dolphins' attempts to tighten the score.
The Buckeyes had 12 players selected through the first 139 picks. Can any team match that haul in 2017? Alabama and LSU look like the best bets.
