On Friday night Towson pulled off the upset of Eastern Illinois in an FCS quarterfinal game, winning 49-39, thanks to a record-setting performance from running back Terrance West.

Though West wasn't even aware of his record during the game.

"I did?" was West's response after the game when he was asked if he was aware that he'd set a new single-game FCS playoff record with 354 rushing yards. He did. He also rushed for five touchdowns, helping the Tigers overcome a 14-0 deficit to the favored Panthers on a cold, snowy night in Charleston, Illinois.

West's performance helped the Tigers advance to the semifinals, where they'll take on the winner of Saturday's game between Eastern Washington and Jacksonville State next week.
