Gardner-Webb 20, Presbyterian 13
CLINTON, S.C. (AP) — Lucas Beatty threw for 209 yards and a touchdown and the Gardner-Webb defense came up with two late stops to hold off Presbyterian for a 20-13 win Saturday.
After Tamyn Garrick found Arthur Williams for a 19-yard touchdown to pull Presbyterian (3-8, 1-4) within seven, 20-13, the Gardner-Webb defense forced the Blue Hose offense to turn the ball over on downs on each of the next two Presbyterian possessions to secure a win for the Runnin' Bulldogs.
Lucas Beatty hit Kenny Cook for a 59-yard touchdown late in the first quarter and Jordan Day hit a pair of short field goals in the second as GW (7-5, 2-3) took a 13-0 lead into the break.
Presbyterian got the ball on its own 28-yard line with 1:38 remaining but its final drive stalled on the Gardner-Webb 20 when Garrick's pass to Jeremiah McKie fell incomplete on fourth-and-2.

Lewis Kindle scored on a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter for the Aggies and Ricky Lewis added a 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.
On the Eagles' possession following Lewis' score, Brian Houston intercepted Jordan Reid's pass and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown. The Aggies' defense continued to dominate in the fourth quarter as D'Anthony Ross sacked Malcolm Bell, forcing a fumble that was recovered by D'Vonte Grant and returned 20 yards for a touchdown.

Samford 33, Elon 32
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Andy Summerlin threw four TD passes, including the game-winner with seconds remaining and propelled Samford to a 33-32 victory over Elon on Saturday, assuring Samford a Southern Conference co-championship.
The Bulldogs (8-4, 6-2) had all they could handle with an upset-minded Elon team that broke out to a first half lead (21-10) and still lead in the fourth quarter when Summerlin took control and drove the Bulldogs 75 yards in 12 plays for the go-ahead TD. Summerlin hit Chris Cephus on a fourth-and-goal 12-yard pass with 0:07 remaining. The 2-point conversion failed, but Elon had no time to mount a comeback.
