No. 20 Baylor 70,
Louisiana Monroe 7
WACO, Texas -- Bryce Petty threw for 351 yards with four touchdowns and ran 2 yards for another score, and Baylor kept piling up the points in a win over Louisiana-Monroe.
The fast-paced Bears (3-0) had seven offensive touchdowns in the 10 drives Petty played. Those TD drives took a total of 6 minutes. No. 4 Ohio State 76,
Florida A&M 0
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Kenny Guiton again starred in place of the injured Braxton Miller, setting a school record with six touchdown passes -- all in the first half -- to lead No. 4 Ohio State to a victory against Florida A&M on Saturday.
It was the most lopsided Ohio State win since 1935.
The Buckeyes (4-0) needed a total of four offensive plays and 46 seconds to go up 21-0 in the opening 6 minutes and never looked back. It was an epic mismatch between a team with national-title aspirations and a Football Championship Subdivision member getting a $900,000 guarantee.
FAMU (1-3), which suffered its worst loss ever, trailed 48-0 before picking up its initial first down in the second quarter.
Guiton completed 24 of 34 passes for 215 yards. His TD passes went to five different receivers.
No. 6 LSU 35, Auburn 21
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Jeremy Hill rushed for a career-high 184 yards and tied a career high with three touchdowns to help sixth-ranked LSU hand Auburn its first loss of the season, 35-21 on Saturday night.
Hill scored touchdowns of 49, 10 and 6 yards, and also set up another score with a 54-yard scamper in which he was shoved out of bounds at the 1. Fullback J.C. Copeland scored from there.
Tre Mason rushed for 132 yards and had two short touchdown runs in the third quarter for Auburn (3-1, 1-1 SEC), the second cutting LSU's lead to 28-14.
No. 7 Louisville 72,
Florida International 0
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Teddy Bridgewater threw four touchdown passes and Louisville's defense allowed a school-record 30 yards, helping the Cardinals blow out Florida International.
It was the highest scoring game for the Cardinals (4-0) since a 73-10 victory over Murray State in 2007. It also matched the school's fifth-largest margin of victory.
No. 8 Florida State 54,
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- No. 8 Florida State and quarterback Jameis Winston defeated FCS opponent Bethune-Cookman despite plenty of sloppy play.
The defending ACC champions (3-0, 1-0) will want to clean up their offense before starting a seven-game stretch against conference foes next week.
No. 9 Georgia 45,
North Texas 21
ATHENS, Ga. -- Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for another score to lead Georgia over pesky North Texas.
Murray overcame an early interception in the end zone, hooking up with freshman Reggie Davis on a 98-yard TD -- the longest pass play in school history. Arthur Lynch and Chris Conley also had touchdown catches for the Bulldogs (2-1).
The Mean Green (2-2) came in as a 33-point underdog, but big plays on special teams helped make a game of it. Brelan Chancellor returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, and Zac Whitfield fell on a blocked punt in the end zone early in the second half to stunningly tie the game at 21.
No. 10 Texas A&M 42,
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Johnny Manziel accounted for 346 yards with three touchdowns in just more than a half to help No. 10 Texas A&M cruise to a win over SMU.
Texas A&M (3-1) was up 32-6 at halftime, and Manziel led the Aggies to a touchdown on their first drive of the third quarter before the Heisman Trophy-winner went to the bench.
It was a nice bounce-back game for Texas A&M after falling to top-ranked Alabama 49-42 last week.
No. 15 Michigan 24,
EAST HARTFORD, Conn.
A week after Michigan needed a last-second stand to hold off Akron, Brendan Gibbons kicked a 21-yard field goal with 4:36 left to give the Wolverines (4-0) their first lead of the second half.
Chandler Whitmer threw two touchdowns and Ty-Meer Brown returned a fumble 34 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter that put UConn (0-3) up 21-7.
No. 16 Miami 77,
Savannah St. 7
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Dallas Crawford and Gus Edwards both scored three touchdowns and Miami got into the end zone on its first seven possessions in rolling to a victory over Savannah State.
The Hurricanes set a school record for points, topping the 75 scored against Fordham in 1954.
Miami (3-0) lost quarterback Stephen Morris to a lower right leg injury with 8:51 left in the opening quarter. Coach Al Golden said in a televised halftime interview that X-rays were negative.
No. 18 Northwestern 35,
EVANSTON, Ill. -- Linebacker Damien Proby and defensive end Dean Lowry each had an interception return for a touchdown to lead Northwestern over Maine.
Northwestern improved to 4-0 as it wrapped up its non-conference slate, but this was not the consistent, steady performance coach Pat Fitzgerald was looking for heading into Big Ten play. If not for the interception returns, Maine (3-1) could have been in line for an upset down the stretch.
No. 19 Florida 31,
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- After starting quarterback Jeff Driskel was lost to a season-ending ankle injury, Tyler Murphy led Florida to five scores in a somewhat ugly game, helping the Gators open Southeastern Conference play with a victory over Tennessee.
Murphy had a 52-yard touchdown throw to Solomon Patton, a swing pass that went the distance, and made several plays with his legs as Florida (2-1, 1-0) won its ninth straight in the series. Murphy's 7-yard TD scamper in the fourth quarter made it 31-10 and sent fans scrambling for the exits.
No. 22 Notre Dame 17,
Michigan St. 13
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Cam McDaniel scored on a 7-yard run following a questionable pass interference call, one of several penalties that hurt Michigan State, and Notre Dame beat the Spartans for its 10th straight home win.
The Fighting Irish (3-1) also took advantage of another questionable pass interference call in the first half that set up a 2-yard touchdown pass from Tommy Rees to TJ Jones and a holding penalty that kept alive a drive that led to a 41-yard field goal by Kyle Brindza. The Spartans (3-1) had 10 penalties for 115 yards by the Big Ten officials.
No. 24 Wisconsin 41,
MADISON, Wis. -- Melvin Gordon ran for three touchdowns, James White added 145 yards rushing and a 70-yard score, and Wisconsin opened Big Ten play with a win over Purdue.
Gordon scored from 5 and 27 yards in the first half before capping the opening drive of the second half with a 15-yard touchdown run to give Wisconsin (3-1, 1-0) a 31-10 lead.
No. 25 Texas Tech 33,
Texas State 7
LUBBOCK, Texas -- Backup quarterback Davis Webb threw for two touchdowns and 310 yards to lead No. 25 Texas Tech over Texas State.
Webb threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Eric Ward in the third quarter and a 10-yarder to Bradley Marquez in the fourth after Texas State failed on a fake punt deep in its own territory.
