Three and Out

November 15, 2004

1. Iowa's Kirk Ferentz is proving once again why he's one of the game's most respected coaches. The Hawkeyes have won five straight to improve to 7-2 despite losing their top four tailbacks to injury since the start of the season.

2. The best quarterback you've never heard of is Akron senior Charlie Frye. The career 10,000-yard passer threw for a pair of touchdowns in the final three minutes of a 31-28 win over Marshall, lifting the Zips into a three-way tie for first in the MAC East.

3. An unnecessary play may cost Tennessee a chance at the SEC title. The Vols lost QB Erik Ainge to a separated right shoulder after he was sacked while setting up for a Hail Mary--from his own 32--on the last play of the first half against Notre Dame.
