Kennesaw State Owls (11-2)


FCS Playoff Review: Weber State 26, Kennesaw State 20

The Score - No. 3 seed Weber State (10-3) beat Kennesaw State (11-3) 26-20 in the second round of the FCS playoffs.

Story Line - Adam Rodriguez's 24-yard fumble return for a touchdown gave Weber State its first lead early in the third quarter and the Big Sky co-champ went on to win despite possessing the ball for only 21 minutes, 15 seconds.

Game Balls - Rodriguez picked up Kennesaw quarterback Jonathan Murphy's errant pitch in providing the 19-17 lead with 13:32 left in the third. The senior defensive end finished with a season-high nine stops, including a 9-yard sack with 1:45 left and another 5-yard tackle for loss. But also credit junior linebacker Conner Mortensen, who had 14 solos among his career-high 15 tackles.
