Game Notes
Program/Ticket
9/3/1998
at #25 Auburn
W, 19-0
The Hoos hold Auburn to 8 first downs, hand them their first
shutout in a home opener since 1927.
9/12/1998
vs. Maryland
W, 31-19
Dex is an absolute beast (19 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 other
tackles for losses, and a forced fumble) as the Hoos hold off
Maryland and move up to #10 in the rankings.
9/19/1998
vs. Clemson
W, 20-18
Beating Clemson is no longer cause for rushing the field.
That's pretty great.
9/26/1998
at Duke
W, 24-0
The Hoos force 8 turnovers, and Dex is once again a
one-man wrecking crew (12 tackles, 2 interceptions, 2
fumble recoveries, and a forced fumble).
 
10/3/1998
vs. San Jose State
W, 52-14
Thomas Jones (203 yards, 2 TDs) and Antwoine Womack
(142 yards, 1 TD) run wild as the Hoos move up to #7.
 
10/17/1998
at #25 Georgia Tech
L, 41-38
This has got to be a joke, right?
10/24/1998
vs. NC State
W, 23-13
Despite the win, Wahoo Nation gets kicked in the beanbag
for the second straight week as Dex goes down with a
season-ending knee injury.
 
10/31/1998
at Wake Forest
W, 38-17
TJ goes over 1,000 yards as the Hoos move to 7-1, their
12th straight season with 7 or more wins.
 
11/7/1998
at #6 Florida State
L, 45-14
Patrick Kerney knocks FSU's geriatric starting QB Chris
Weinke out of the game, but the Noles pick off 4 passes
and blow the game open in the 2nd half.
 
11/14/1998
vs. UNC
W, 30-13
The Hoos go undefeated (5-0) at home for the first time
since 1991.
11/28/1998
at #20 Virginia Tech
W, 36-32
Years later, thinking about this game still puts a big time
hop in my step.
12/31/1998
vs. #19 Georgia
(Peach Bowl)
L, 35-33
Quincy Carter's career trajectory: released by Dallas
Cowboys; released by NY Jets; released by Montreal
Alouettes; suspended by Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings;
released by Kansas City Brigage; currently playing for the
Abilene Ruff Riders of the Indoor Football League.

UPDATE: Carter has now been released by the Ruff Riders
because he stopped showing up and they have no idea
where he is. This guy absolutely rules.
