  D'Vonte Price ran for 165 yards and three touchdowns on just five carries and Florida International breezed to a 48-10 victory over Long Island in a season opener on Thursday night. Price accounted for all 69 yards on the opening drive for the Panthers - carrying three times and capping the drive with an 8-yard TD. Price scored on the second play of the second drive, running 68 yards for a score. His final carry came in the second quarter and resulted in a 28-yard TD and a 28-0 lead.

Max Bortenschlager completed 14 of 17 passes for 266 yards and two TDs with one interception for FIU. He had scoring strikes of 52 yards to Bryce Singleton and a 12-yarder to Tyrese Chambers. Singleton finished with 149 yards on six catches. Camden Orth completed 15 of 30 passes for 197 yards and a score for the Sharks, an FCS school. Derick Eugene had seven receptions for 115 yards and a TD. The Panthers piled up 594 yards of offense, while holding Long Island to 291. - Florida International/AP College Football

  The veteran won the job. Max Bortenschlager, the Maryland Terrapins transfer who is entering his sixth collegiate season, is expected to be FIU's starting quarterback when the Panthers open the season Thursday night against visiting Long Island. Bortenschlager, who has made 11 starts - nine at Maryland and two at FIU - edged second-year freshman Haden Carlson, who has yet to take a college snap.

Kaylan Wiggins, who is in his fifth season at FIU, and true freshman Grayson James provide further depth. "Max is the guy who has been doing a majority of the work with the starters," FIU coach Butch Davis told the Herald on Friday. "Haden is working as the backup, but all four quarterbacks have improved significantly. "We anticipate Max will be our starting quarterback unless something changes in the next four or five days, which I don't think it will." Bortenschlager, a 6-3, 205-pounder, struggled last season in his first year at FIU. He completed just 45.7 percent of his passes as FIU went 0-5. - Miami Herald

  FIU has added two linebackers from the transfer portal: Hal Vinson of Texas State and Eric Mitchell of UCF. Vinson was seventh on his team in tackles and third in tackles for losses last year. In 35 games at UCF, Mitchell had 18 tackles for losses, five sack and one interception. He was sixth on the team in tackles this past season. - Miami Herald

  Former Tennessee football players Jordan Allen and Savion Williams selected transfer destinations in recent days, opting for programs in the Football Championship Subdivision. Williams, a defensive lineman who played two seasons at Tennessee, committed to Florida A&M. The 6-foot-4, 290-pound Williams, from Washington, D.C. was the No. 1-ranked junior college defensive tackle in the 2019 class. His offer list included Georgia, Nebraska and West Virginia, but he never gained much playing time with the Vols. His seven tackles in the first two games of the 2019 season accounted for his total in nine career games played through 1½ seasons at Tennessee. - Knoxville News Sentinel

  Because of an NCAA this-year-only rule that has to do with the pandemic, seniors can return to play one more season in 2021. The Panthers have 20 key seniors, and, so far, three of them have announced they are going to try for the NFL next season: left tackle D'Antne Demery, guard/center Shane McGough and defensive end Noah Curtis. Demery is FIU's top NFL Draft prospect, and he is followed on that list by running back D'vonte Price, who announced last week that he will return to the Panthers. Price is not the only FIU senior to announce he is returning. - Miami Herald
