Sam Houston goal-line stand stops UIW 49-42 in FCS playoff

HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) Ramon Jefferson rushed for 166 yards and two touchdowns, Eric Schmid accounted for the game-winning score and defending national champion Sam Houston fended off Incarnate Word 49-42 with a last-gasp goal-line tackle in the second round of the FCS playoffs on Saturday.

The top-seeded, top-ranked Bearkats (11-0) will entertain eighth-seeded and No. 9-ranked Montana State (10-2) in the quarterfinals. The NCAA Selection Committee was to determine the date and time Saturday night.

Incarnate Word (10-3), playing its first football game in December, gave the defending national champions all they could handle, with quarterback Cameron Ward throwing for 481 yards and five touchdowns - two in the fourth quarter. Ward led the Cardinals 71 yards on their final possession, charging toward the goal line on a fourth-and-goal from the 4-yard line and landing just short when he was tackled and ruled down at the 1 before he was able to stretch the ball past the line.
