McFadden leads Independence into title game

Charlotte Independence, which features East Carolina commitment Darryl McFadden at quarterback, is in position to win an unprecedented seventh straight state championship because of an offense that was relentless and razor sharp, according to a Charlotte Observer report.

The Patriots removed the drama early in a 49-23 rout of rival Butler in the NCHSAA 4-AA semifinal Saturday in front of about 20,000 fans at Memorial Stadium.

McFadden threw for four touchdowns and ran for a fifth. He was 15-of-20 passing for 185 yards. He also ran nine time for 50 yards.

Independence scored touchdowns on seven of eight possessions. The victory was Independence's 107th in a row, the second-longest streak in U.S. history.

The Patriots play Durham Riverside in the title game at Duke next Saturday.

Bearcats bound for new bowl in Toronto

The University of Cincinnati on Sunday accepted an invitation to play in the first International Bowl against Western Michigan of the Mid-American Conference on Jan. 6 at the Rogers Centre (SkyDome) in Toronto, according to a Cincinnati Enquirer report.

The game will be played at noon and will be telecast on ESPN2.

The Bearcats will be making their first bowl appearance as a member of the Big East Conference after finishing the regular season with a 7-5 record, 4-3 in the league.

This will be the second time UC has played in an inaugural bowl game. The Bearcats also played in the first Humanitarian Bowl in 1997 in Boise, ID, defeating Utah State, 35-19.

The bowl invitation is UC’s sixth since 1997. The Bearcats have played an opponent from the MAC in all but two of those bowl games.

Western Michigan finished 8-4 during the regular season, 6-2 in the MAC, placing second in the West Division. The Broncos led their conference in total defense and were ranked sixth nationally in rushing defense, allowing 71.92 yards per game. They lead the nation in interceptions with 22.

UC leads the series against Western Michigan, 2-0, but the two schools have not met in football since 1980.
