In his final career game, Petrino accounted for an FCS season-high 563 yards of total offense and seven total touchdowns (six passing, one rushing) as Idaho beat Northern Arizona 60-53 in overtime in the Big Sky.

Defensive Player of Week 13
Horn led the way as UNH held Maine to season lows in points and offensive yards while winning 28-10 in a CAA rivalry game. He recorded a game- and career-high 11 tackles, including 10 solos with two sacks, and forced a fumble that was recovered by a teammate. On special teams, Horn's diving effort at the Maine goal line on a UNH punt prevented a touchback and pinned the Black Bears at their 1-yard line.

Hayworth scored an school-record 17 points in the Colonels' 29-23 victory over Jacksonville State - their first over the Ohio Valley Conference power since 2012. He connected from 34, 24, 25, 50 and 28 yards while going 5-for-6 on field goal attempts (the miss was from 48 yards) and made his two PAT attempts.
