Northern Illinois @ Oklahoma State
Kendall Hunter ran for 182 yards as 12th seeded Oklahoma State breezed to a 1st Round 37-14 win over Northern Illinois. Hunter ran for a touchdown and also caught one from Brandon Weedon. Weedon ended up with 355 yards passing and three scores. Northern Illinois trailed 17-0 cut it to 17-7 at the half and had some hope. But Oklahoma State got a pair of third quarter TD passes from Weedon to Justin Horton and one of Dan Bailey's three field goals to leave little doubt.
Clemson @ Utah
Utah's Joe Phillips kicked three second half field goals and the Utes held off two Clemson rallies to advance with a 30-28 win. Utah led 21-0 after one quarter only to see the Tigers tie it at the intermission. The Utes then got three Phillips field goals in succession to take the nine point lead. Clemson cut it to 30-28 on the second of Andre Ellington's touchdown runs with 4:53 left. The Utah offense chewed up most of the clock with three first downs, but Clemson did get the ball back with a chance to win the game with 1:23 left. However, the Ute defense stopped them on downs at the 43 to preserve the win.
