  Quay Holmes scored two touchdowns and ran for 125 yards and East Tennessee overcame a slow start to beat Samford 24-17 on Saturday in the spring opener for both teams. Tyler Riddell threw a 59-yard touchdown pass to Juliun Lane-Price who beat his defender on an outside route. The diving defender was left helpless and Lane-Price outran a pursuing defender for the go-ahead score with 5:28 remaining to play. On Samford's final drive, Donovan Manuel intercepted Chris Oladokun's desperation pass attempt that was deflected as he flushed to the right by pressure from ETSU. Samford established immediate control using a 17-play, 88-yard scoring drive when Oladokun threw a 5-yard scoring pass to Dakota Chapman to make it 7-0. The Buccaneers coughed up the ball nine plays into their opening drive which led to a 10-play, 76-yard scoring drive for the Bulldogs. Jay Stanton ran it in from a yard out for a 14-0 advantage. - East Tennessee/AP College Football

  Flames defensive end Austin Lewis and quarterback Chris Ferguson have both entered the transfer portal and are expected to enroll at new universities for the spring semester. Freeze is allowing them to play in the bowl game and give them the opportunity to finish the season with their teammates. "I just admire people that finish and finish the right way. I get the world we live in and both are transferring for different reasons, and I think both are right to transfer," Freeze said. "We had those discussions, we were honest with each other and I think for what they're wanting, I think it's in their best interest to do that. My challenge to them was just finish well and I'll help you any way I can."

Lewis is completing his junior season and was the program's first All-American at the FBS level. He was a standout defensive end early at Liberty and has added weight to be able to play inside more frequently. However, his playing time diminished with the arrival of new explosive defensive ends and more consistent play from the tackles. - Lynchburg News and Advance
