Rice QB Taylor McHargue left Saturday's game with a shoulder injury.
On a day when Texas and Houston did not play and Texas A&M barely broke a sweat in a 70-14 blowout of South Carolina State, the biggest injury news came when Rice quarterback Taylor McHargue left the Owls' game with Marshall after apparently injuring his shoulder. McHarangue was in the midst of an unbelievable performance, throwing for 314 yards and three touchdowns while adding 153 yards on the ground, when he dove toward the goal line at the end of a 47-yard touchdown run in the game's final seconds. The junior quarterback was injured on the dive and did not return. There is no word yet from the team on the extent of the injury.
The LSU Tigers sustained a pair of minor injuries Saturday, as center P.J. Lonergan exited the game on the Tigers' second play from scrimmage and wide receiver Jarvis Landry was hurt in the third quarter. Both players eventually returned to the game, and neither player is expected to miss any additional time.
