STILL PERFECT

SOUTHERN LOOKS HUMAN, BUT STILL SHUTS OUT NORTHERN

The Southern Spartans played with dull swords that still were sharp enough to beat the Northern Knights 28-0 in a non-conference duel on Friday.

Northern had Southern quarterback Kendall Hinton looking halfway human. The Knights’ defensive linemen were getting really good surges and got their hands on Hinton several times for sacks.

Hinton still threw for nearly 200 yards, including a pass to wide receiver Aaron Hirsch that turned into a 50-yard touchdown.

Unbeaten Duke leans heavily on improving ground game

Freshman running back Shaun Wilson ran for 245 yards on 12 carries against Kansas last weekend, breaking Robert Baldwin’s 20-year-old, single-game rushing record at Duke. But Duke's steadily improving ground attack is not going to see him carry the ball 25 times. Fellow backs Josh Snead, Shaquille Powell and Joseph Ajeigbe will each get their carries, too.
