AKRON, Ohio -- Marshall quarterback Byron Leftwich injured his left shin and left Saturday's 34-20 loss against Akron but returned in the third quarter.

Leftwich, one of the nation's top quarterbacks, was hit on the left shin by Ryan Myers with about seven minutes left in the first quarter. He left for one play and came back to lead a touchdown drive.

He then left the game and didn't return until 7:06 left in the third quarter. Leftwich was taken to a hospital for X-rays, which were negative.

He finished 26-for-38 for 307 yards but did not throw a touchdown for the first time since Nov.10.

GA. SOUTHERN: Quarterback Chaz Williams ran for 142 yards in a 40-7 victory over East Tennessee State, setting a school record with his sixth consecutive 100-yard rushing game.

ILLINOIS: Fullback Carey Davis, the team's second-leading rusher, left the game against Penn State because of a sprained left knee. Davis was blocking for Antoineo Harris when he twisted his knee. Davis limped as he left the field and did not return.

IOWA: Maurice Brown had six catches for 107 yards in a 20-3 victory over Wisconsin, his fourth 100-yard game this season. Also, Nate Kaeding's streak of field goals made ended at 22 during the third quarter with a miss from 27 yards.

KENT ST.: Quarterback Joshua Cribbs rushed for 91 yards in a 45-14 loss to Bowling Green, going over 1,000 for the second straight year.

MARYLAND: Steve Sutor tied a Division I record with his fourth punt return for a touchdown this season, a 77-yarder during a 52-7 victory against North Carolina.

MISSOURI: Redshirt freshman quarterback Brad Smith set a school single-season record for total offense during a 42-35 loss to Iowa State. Smith had 318 yards to give him 2,683. Quarterback Corby Jones set the record of 2,545 in 1997. Smith was 23-of-34 for 241 yards and one touchdown and added 77 yards rushing on 15 carries.

NEVADA: The Wolf Pack allowed the fewest points since 1998 in a 24-6 victory over SMU.

OHIO ST.: Mike Nugent kicked two field goals to set a school record with 20 this season and extend his overall mark to 21 in a row.

PENN ST.: Before Kenny Boyle's touchdown for Illinois, the defense had gone 11 quarters without allowing a touchdown. The last one came Oct. 12 in overtime at Michigan.

SAN DIEGO ST.: J.R. Tolver, who led the nation in receiving yards, left the game in the first quarter after taking a hit from BYU's Aaron Francisco. He returned in the second half but didn't catch a pass until an 8-yard touchdown in the fourth. He finished with four catches for 30 yards in a 34-10 loss.

TEXAS TECH: Kliff Kingsbury injured his right ankle slightly in the first quarter and hobbled until leaving in the third of the Red Raiders' 62-11 victory over Baylor. He also broke the I-A record for passing attempts with 1,696, 17 more than Louisville's Chris Redman.

TROY ST.: With its 23-0 loss to Arkansas, the Trojans were shut out for the first time in 230 games, dating to a 17-0 loss to Mississippi College on Oct.1, 1983.

WISCONSIN: Quarterback Brooks Bollinger was injured late in the first half of the Badgers' 20-3 loss to Iowa and didn't return. He finished 2-of-9 for 46 yards and had 6 yards rushing.
