(STATS) -- FCS defenses believe its better to both take and receive, so were putting on our non-authentic jersey and going in at linebacker.OK, place-kicker.Here are some takeaways from an FCS September to remember:- Twelve teams remain unbeaten heading into this weekends action and all but No. 2 Sam Houston State have taken away more turnovers from their opponents than served up. Its a group led by No. 21 Albanys plus-13 turnover margin. These teams learned last year -- only one had a negative margin.- Nine of the 10 FCS teams to beat FBS programs are nationally ranked. The exception is Central Arkansas, which is 3-1.- The coaches and players on five-time defending FCS national champion North Dakota State simply believe they will win no matter the opponent or the situation. The top-ranked Bison are 3-0, winning twice in overtime and once on a game-ending field goal.- The team of the month has to be No. 4 Eastern Washington, which has beaten Washington State (on the road), Northern Iowa and Big Sky preseason favorite Northern Arizona (on the road) and only lost at North Dakota State in overtime. The Eagles have done it behind the nations leading passer, sophomore Gage Gubrud.- Conference opponents know FCS powers better than anyone else. Richmond, William & Mary, Montana and Illinois State were all in the Top 10 when they played their conference opener … and lost.- Teams that run the ball well are always big winners. Out of the top 27 teams in rushing offense, 23 have winning records (with nine unbeaten), two are .500 and only two are below .500.- Injuries play an unforgiving part of the game, as James Madison (Vad Lee) and Villanova (John Robertson) could attest last season. NDSU has lost middle linebacker Nick DeLuca, its leading tackler, for the remainder of the season. Other All-Americans to lose playing time to injuries include Eastern Washington wide receiver Cooper Kupp, Jacksonville State wide receiver Josh Barge, William & Mary running back Kendell Anderson and Northern Arizona quarterback Case Cookus. Defending conference champs Charleston Southern (Big South) and Alcorn State (SWAC) have lost their signal-callers as well.- Speaking of Charleston Southern, no team has ridden a roller coaster quite like the Buccaneers. They had the early start in the FCS Kickoff (Aug, 27) and went to overtime at North Dakota State, have been through four quarterbacks, had their coach (Jamey Chadwell) suspended for an assistants recruiting violation on social media, had 32 players suspended one game each for violating an NCAA rule regarding financial aid (bringing national attention the week of the Florida State game) and re-entered the Top 10 after winning their Big South opener.---=FCS GAME OF THE WEEK=The Matchup: No. 2 Sam Houston State (3-0, 2-0 Southland) vs. Stephen F. Austin (3-1, 1-0)Kickoff: 4 p.m. at NRG Stadium in HoustonTelevision: ESPN3Series: Sam Houston State leads 53-35-2 (most recent meeting: 34-28 on Oct. 3, 2015)The Skinny: This is the 91st meeting of the Battle of the Piney Woods. SFA won the first time the game was played at NRG Stadium in 2000 and Sam Houston has captured the last five meetings.Stephen F. Austin has won recent games with QB Hunter Taylor coming off the bench in relief of Zach Conque, coach Clint Conques son. The Lumberjacks defense is stout against the run, surrendering just 91 yards per game. While the Lumberjacks have a strong pass rush, led by DE Kedrick Harrisons five sacks, Sam Houston has allowed only one sack. They have forced 10 turnovers for a plus-5 margin. Storm Ruiz has kicked seven field goals, which is tied for second-most in the FCS.Sam Houston leads the FCS in points per game (51.7) and yards per game (632.7). QB Jeremiah Briscoe has averaged 345 passing yards, but the Bearkats will run the ball as well with Remus Bulmer, Corey Avery and Javin Webb, who all have at least 200 yards. The Bearkats defense has never been confused as being North Dakota State-esque, but two-thirds of the points surrendered have come in the second half when games are out of reach. Ten of DE P.J. Halls 13 tackles have gone for loss.Prediction: Stephen F. Austin is improved from a year ago, but Sam Houston also is better, and the prohibitive Southland Conference favorite went to the FCS semifinals. Sam Houston, 38-27.---=STATS FCS TOP 25 SCHEDULE=All Times ETX-Predicted WinnerThursday, Sept. 29Hampton (1-2, 1-0 MEAC) at X-No. 22 North Carolina A&T (2-1, 1-0), 7:30 p.m. -- A&T has a 24-5 record at home in coach Rod Broadways six seasons.Friday, Sept. 30Georgetown (3-0) at X-No. 25 Harvard (2-0), 7 p.m. -- The Hoyas have a better record than the three-time defending Ivy League champ.

SAN DIEGO -- Rockies pitcher Jeff Hoffman could have pointed a finger at his shortstop.But he declined after Colorado was routed by the San Diego Padres, 14-1, on Thursday.Hoffman (0-3) lasted 2 2/3 innings, but it was hardly all by his own doing. He gave up seven unearned runs, six hits and two walks. It was his shortest stint in his four career starts.The Padres dinged Hoffman with a seven-run third, highlighted by Ryan Schimpfs three-run blast. It tied a season-high for runs in an inning for the Padres after they sent 11 batters to the plate. But San Diego had a little help from Cristhian Adames as all the runs were unearned.The error doesnt mean anything, Hoffman said. That stuff happens. You just got to go out and make the next pitch and get out of it.With Luis Sardinas at third, Jon Jays two-out grounder kicked off Adames glove at shortstop for a run-scoring error. Wil Myers, Solarte and Dickerson followed with singles, with the last two bringing in runs.Then Schimpf went deep over the fence in center field. Sardinas got on for the second time in the inning with an RBI single for a 7-0 lead.Errors certainly hurt but you got to put the inning down at some point, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. I think it was just a matter of his command and getting in tough counts.San Diego tacked on three runs in the fifth on Richards RBI groundout after German Marquez walked the bases loaded in his major league debut. Jankowski added a two-run single.Clayton Richard pitched seven scoreless innings in stifling the Rockies.ddddddddddddSchimpf, a rookie second baseman, hit his 18th home run of the season, all coming since July 1.Richard (2-3) was sharp as he scattered six hits, walked two and had eight strikeouts.After two earlier stints with the Padres, Richard was claimed off waivers when released by the Chicago Cubs on Aug. 3. It was his second impressive start since Aug. 27, when he blanked the Miami Marlins over seven innings in a win.Keith Hessler and Brandon Morrow pitched the final two innings. Adames spoiled the shutout with a one-out homer in the ninth off Morrow.Every position player in the Padres starting lineup had a hit. Travis Jankowski, Yangervis Solarte, Alex Dickerson and Schimpf had two each. Derek Norris added a two-run homer in the eighth.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Reinstated RHP Jason Motte from the DL. Motte has been out since July 26 with a strained right rotator cuff.Padres: RHP Jarred Cosart could miss his next start after straining his right groin and hamstring when leaping for an errant throw on Wednesday.UP NEXTRockies: RHP Tyler Chatwood (10-9, 3.94) is 6-1 on the road, with a 1.82 ERA which leads the majors.
