Jordan Chunn scored twice in Troy’s 42-28 victory over Texas State last week which made the Trojans’ bowl eligible for the sixth time in the last eight seasons. Chunn has 14 rushing touchdowns which is a Troy freshman record. He has at least one rushing touchdown in 11 of 12 games this season. But this stat is more about one of the seniors not the freshman. Quarterback Corey Robinson is now in select company, despite only throwing for 133 yards, a total that propelled him to over 3,000 for the season. The signal caller has thrown for over 3,000 in each of his four seasons. He is now one of five quarterbacks in NCAA history to accomplish this feat. He is one of two to accomplish it this season. Here are all five players.
- Landry Jones (2009-12) Oklahoma
- Dan Lefevour (2006-09) Central Michigan
- Kellen Moore (2008-11) Boise State
- Aaron Murray (2010-13) Georgia
- Corey Robinson (2010-13) Troy
UL-Monroe defeated UL-Lafayette 31-28 and became bowl eligible for the second straight season. This was the first time ever UL-Monroe accomplished bowl eligibility in back-to-back seasons. It was also the first win for the Warhawks over the Ragin’ Cajuns since 2007 and UL-Lafayette’s first conference lost of the season. In the game, UL-Monroe trailed 14-0 early but fought back. One of the players that was a key was running back DeVontae McNeal who had a career-long 77-yard touchdown run to tie the score at 14. It was the fourth time this season that a UL-Monroe player had a 50-yard or more touchdown run.
