Jimenez rushed for 85 yards on 23 carries and scored Montclair State’s final touchdown as the Red Hawks claimed a share of the NJAC championship with a 21-8 win at local rival William Paterson. Jimenez, who averaged 3.7 yards per carry, scored on a four-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to give MSU a 13-point lead. The victory also kept Montclair’s NCAA Playoff hopes alive and the Red Hawks were awarded one of the six at-large bids to the NCAA Division III Playoffs.
