SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Orangemen presented a framed No. 66 game jersey to Omain Gullette's parents during halftime against Temple at Veterans Stadium.

Gullette, a 6-foot, 310-pound defensive tackle, was shot dead a month before he was scheduled to report for his first preseason camp.

"Oh my gosh, it's extraordinary," Gullette's mother, Pamela Reynolds, said. "I was sitting here crying. It's amazing. They loved him that much. And he didn't even get a chance to even go."

Coach Paul Pasqualoni decided the number will not be issued for the next four seasons. Syracuse also will leave open a locker, with shoulder pads and a helmet, in honor of Gullette.

Three gunmen shot Gullette on a street corner in southwest Philadelphia on June 29. Police said they think Gullette was in the wrong place at the wrong time. There have been no arrests.

DIVISION II RECORD: Minnesota-Morris tied an NCAA record with its 39th straight loss, 52-14 to Winona State. The record is shared by St. Paul's (1948-53) and Cheyney (1994-98).

AUBURN: Carnell Williams gained 99 yards on 24 carries in the loss to Arkansas, becoming the first in school history to run for a TD in six straight games. ... Damon Duval became the school's all-time leader in kicking points with 239, passing Al Del Greco's 236 (1990-93).

CITADEL: Former basketball star Cliff Washburn had four of seven sacks in a win over East Tennessee State. Washburn, a 6-foot-7, 270-pound end, played four seasons for the Bulldogs' basketball team and is the school's career leader with 102 games started. This is his first season of football.

GEORGIA: Terrence Edwards set the school record for receiving yards against Tennessee with seven receptions for 112 yards.

MICHIGAN: Defensive back Zia Combs was hospitalized after being taken off the field on a stretcher in a collision in the first quarter against Penn State. Combs' helmet collided with teammate Ernest Shazor's midsection as both tried to down a punt near Penn State's goal line.

"He has full movement and no broken bones," Michigan spokesman Bruce Madej said. "He will be held overnight for observation."

MISSISSIPPI: Eli Manning was 14-of-19 for 290 yards and three TDs against Arkansas State, tying Romaro Miller's school record for TD passes with 43. Manning's father, Archie, had 31 at Ole Miss.

MISSOURI: Justin Gage became the Tigers' all-time leader in receiving yards with a 7-yard catch in the first quarter against Nebraska. He needed 3 to top the mark of 2,144 set by Victor Bailey (1990-92). Gage had 47 yards, giving him 2,189 for his career. "The receiving record is bittersweet," he said. "I'm glad I got it, but it's hard to lose. I lost to Nebraska four straight years. It's hard to swallow."

NEBRASKA: Defensive end Chris Kelsay did not play because of a pulled hamstring. Kelsay, a 6-foot-5, 260-pound senior co-captain, injured his right hamstring in the win over McNeese State. He has 41/2 of the Huskers' 13 sacks this season.

OHIO: Chad Brinker rushed for 127 yards and tied a school record with four TDs against Eastern Michigan.

VIRGINIA: Tailback Wali Lundy had 11 receptions for 78 yards against Clemson, setting a school record for receptions by a running back (nine).
