01/07/19- Rodrigo Blankenship, rJr, Georgia, 6-0, 191
Georgia kicker Rodrigo Blankenship says he'll be returning to the Bulldogs for his senior season. The specialist known for his thick glasses announced his decision on Twitter. He wrote, "I'm going to keep this short and sweet. Dawg Nation, I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE." Blankenship decided not to follow the lead set by four teammates. Wide receivers Riley Ridley and Mecole Hardman, running back Elijah Holyfield and tight end Isaac Nauta entered the NFL draft last week. Also, backup quarterback Justin Fields is expected to transfer. Underclassmen have until Jan. 14 to declare their plans. Blankenship took over the kicking job in 2016, earned a scholarship and developed into one of the nation's most reliable weapons. This season, he connected on 19 of 23 field goals and all 65 extra points to finish with 122 points. - AP College Football

11/27/18- Christopher Dunn, Fr, North Carolina State, 5-08, 177
2018 ALL-ACC FOOTBALL SECOND TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): PK Christopher Dunn, Fr., NC State, 86 Votes,...Freshman Christopher Dunn was named to the second-team at placekicker. Dunn currently ranks second in the conference among kickers with 97 points scored, that mark is currently fifth all-time for a single season in the NC State record books and second among kickers (102). He is a perfect 43-of-43 on extra points, and 18-of-21 on field goals. His 18 makes are two away from the all-time single-season record at NC State (20). - NC State Football

11/24/18- Miguel Recinos, rSr, Iowa, 6-0, 193
The easy field goal that coach Kirk Ferentz didn't have to fake nearly cost Iowa the game. The kick the Hawkeyes had to make wound up rescuing them from a devastating defeat - and saved Ferentz from getting excoriated from frustrated Iowa fans. Miguel Recinos drilled a 41-yard field goal through a driving rain as time expired and Iowa beat Nebraska 31-28 on Friday despite blowing a 15-point lead in the second half. Mekhi Sargent ran for a career-high 173 yards and scored twice for the Hawkeyes (8-4, 5-4 Big Ten), who have won four straight over the Cornhuskers for the first time. "For us, this is a black and gold Friday," Ferentz joked. The Hawkeyes came within inches of making it a black and blue Friday. Iowa made the risky decision to fake a field goal at Nebraska's 3-yard line up 28-13 late in the third quarter. It failed, and it led to a 98-yard scoring drive from the Huskers to make it 28-20 with 13:57 to go. "We were going for the kill. Simple as that," Ferentz said about holder Colten Rastetter's pass to T.J. Hockenson, which was stopped a yard short. "We felt like we could really push this thing through." - AP College Football

11/17/18- Tyler Sumpter, So, Troy, 5-10, 221
Tyler Sumpter drilled four field goals to provide the winning margin in Troy's 12-7 victory over Texas State on Saturday afternoon to give the Trojans their 13th straight Sun Belt Conference victory. The Trojans (9-2, 7-0) will play Appalachian State next Saturday for the right to host the inaugural Sun Belt Conference Championship game on December 1. Appalachian State (8-2, 6-1) thrashed Georgia State 45-17 on Saturday. Sumpter tied the school record with four field goals in a game. He also had four in a 26-16 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette two weeks ago. Sumpter connected on field goals of 36, 47 and 42 yards in the first half to take a 9-0 lead. He added a 27-yarder for a 12-0 advantage early in the fourth quarter. Texas State (3-8, 1-6) got on the board when Anthony Taylor ran in from the 3 with 9:10 remaining. On the next series Sumpter punted and pinned the Bobcats on their own 14 after Troy failed to convert on a third-down play. Texas State got to its own 29 before Jarvis Hayes and Travis Sailo sacked Tyler Vitt, forcing a punt. The Trojans kept the ball until the time ran out. - AP College Football

11/17/18- Jerry Nunez, Jr, Indiana State, 5-11, 185
Jerry Nunez delivered a 27-yard field goal as time expired to give Indiana State its fifth straight win, a 15-13 victory over Western Illinois in the final Missouri Valley Conference game of the season Saturday. The Sycamores finished the regular season 7-4 and ranked No. 23 in the Football Championship Subdivision and now await an at-large postseason berth. Nunez kicked three field goals for Indiana State, hitting from 26-yards out in the first quarter and from 18 midway through the third quarter. Sam Crosa kicked a 35-yard field goal with 5:10 left in the third quarter to put Western Illinois up, 13-12. Ryan Boyle drove the Sycamores 71 yards on the final drive to the Western Illinois 9 with :04 second left to set up Nunez's game winner. Boyle was 9 of 17 for 149 yards passing and scored from a yard out for Indiana State. Peterson Kerlegrand carried 21 times for 102 yards. Sean McGuire was 16 of 27 for 202 yards passing for Western Illinois (5-6). Steve McShane carried 16 times for 129 yards and a touchdown. - AP College Football
