One of the concerns about moving Ohio forward was its offensive line, but the unit responded in the second quarter to a 34- 10 over Michigan. After an early fight against the Spartans' formidable defensive front (OSU had 16 yards in its first 16 offensive games), the Buckeyes settled for 296 yards in the second quarter when they exploded for 24 points. OSU had 323 tops on 49 attempts. Justin Fields, who was fired twice early and threw his first interception of the season, completed 17 of 25 passes for 206 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in his most difficult test so far.

Tennessee, defenseman Brian Maurer and his receivers, coped early Georgia. However, not so much in the second half. Georgia's defense allowed just 104 yards after the break, and linebacker Tae Crowder struck out and turned it 60 yards for a touchdown as the Bulldogs made their way to a 43-14 victory. The Bulldogs had three sacks and 11 tackles for loss. Georgia has won eight of its last 10 against volunteers. The Bulldogs have won the last two games at Neiland Stadium by a combined score of 84-14. One sore spot: UGA had 11 penalties for 107 yards.

The LSU offensive renaissance lasted Saturday when the Tigers accumulated 610 yards in the 42-6 Utah route. Joe Barrow became the first LSU quarterback to throw more than 300 yards in four straight games; he had 344 yards and five touchdowns on 27-by-38 passing against Aggie. Burrow already has 22 seasons of a touchdown, five more than the Tigers in each of the previous two seasons, and 10 more than in 2016. He only needs six TDs to tie the school's single-season record of 28 set by Jamarcus Russell (2006) and Matt Mauk (2003).
Next: vs. Florida (Saturday, 8:00 pm ET, ESPN)
The Tigers are also Sunday on Saturday, and they needed extra time to get their images back in rhythm. While the crime was suddenly fought over time, Clemson's defense was strong enough. The Tigers held each of their first five opponents under 300 yards of offense; Ohio State is the only other FBS program that does this. Despite losing four starting defensive liners and two quarterbacks last season, the Tigers are pushing for opposing opponents 47% of the time, which is the fourth highest FBS score.

Whether because of bad weather, a rare crowd, their opponent, or hoping for the next weekend against Texas in the River River- River, Soons It seemed a little irrational in a 45-20 victory in Kansas on Saturday. If a 25-point win is considered a failure, Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley will likely take it weekly. Jalen Herts rushed for 228 yards with two touchdowns and ran 56 yards with two more scores. He is responsible for 21 touchdowns this season, most associated with an OS player in the last five games over the last 15 years, and Keeler Murray (2018)
] next: against Texas at Dallas (Saturday, noon ET, Fox)
Wisconsin's defense made a 48-0 stop over Kent on Saturday, and the Badgers are picking up pace to become one of the most statistically dominant units in Big Ten history. Wisconsin allowed only 29 points in five games – the lowest since he surrendered 26 in the first five games in 2004 – and posted his third edition of the season, setting a school record for one season established in 1937. The Badgers are the first Big Ten team to win three draws in their first five games since 1973 in Michigan. Kent only managed 124 yards of offense – 64 passing yards and 60 rushing yards.
Next: vs. Michigan State (Saturday, 3:30 p.m.)
Georgia won't be a waltz until the SEC Championship game. The Florida defense made quite a statement in their 24-13 victory over Ore, forcing four turnovers with three sacks. This season, the Gators have allowed just 16 points in four home games. The Gators made their mistake, turning the ball over four times (losing three fights in a row) and failing to take the first down fake puck from their 34-yard line. But kicker Kyle Trask found some stiffness, coming back from a stretched knee to complete 19 of 31 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns.
Next: at LSU (Saturday, 8:00 pm ET, ESPN)
The Irish game was played against unsurpassed Bowling Green, as Ian Books became the first Notre Dame defender to drop a & # 39; touchdowns (four different players) in the first half during the 52-0 halftime break.

The Irish have posted their first closure in over five years; the previous one is the Michigan victory (31-0) on September 6, 2014. They will face the toughest two games remaining – at home against Southern California and Michigan on October 26th.  Next: vs. USC (Saturday, 7:30 pm ET, NBC)
Texas quarterback Sam Ellinger warned us that "downstairs" signals West Virginia's 42-41 victory in Austin last season would not forget. Ellinger fulfilled his promise on Saturday as he rushed for two touchdowns and ran out for two more in a 42-31 victory over the Mountaineers. For the third time this season, the Texas Blast has given up more than 30 points. But the Longhorns intercepted Austin Kendall four times, held the climbers to only 96 yards and limited them 4-by-14 to third down.
Up next: against Oklahoma in Dallas (Saturday, noon ET, Fox)
The Nittany Lions jumped early on a depleted Perdue team and then dropped the foot in a 35-7 win. Penny State scored a touchdown in each of her first four possessions on a 28-0 drive, but he only scored again when Noah Ken's 2-yard run with 5:44 to play in the contest. That was more than enough against the Kotlers, who played without bumper Elijah Sindellar and receiver Rondal Moore. Penny State's defense had 10 sacks, which was one of the shy one-off school records.
Next: in Iowa (Saturday, 7:30 p.m., ABC)
After Promising Starting his career as a Redhead, freshman freshman Bo Nicks showed a 24-13 loss in Florida.

In the not too distant past, Oregon would not have had a chance to win if its crime were fought. But Mario Cristobal continues to turn the Ducks into a physical team, and they have managed to overcome many first-half errors to escape by winning 17-7 against California. The Ducks had three turnovers in the first two quarters and faced a 7-0 halftime lead. Then the Oregon State defense opened the second inning four in a row with three outs and an interception. The Ducks' leading forward, CJ Verdell, was left in the first half with a right ankle injury and, starting at defensive end, Gus Cumberlander wounded his knee late.
Next: vs. Colorado (Friday, 10 p.m. ET, Fox Sports 1)
The Utes got off the week after their 38-13 victory over Washington State on September 28, with an opening date could not come at the best of times. Zack Moss is expected to return to play Saturday in Oregon after he did not play against Cougars due to a shoulder injury. And a foot injury worried quarterback Tyler Huntley. Meanwhile, junior UK receiver Covey, who returned from a torn ACL last season at the Pack-12 Championships, has swollen and is expected to wear red after playing in just four games in 2019. Previously, he was worried about continued swelling and pain.

After testing with Florida State and Marshall to start the season, the Broncos have gone through their last three games, including winning in Saturday night at UNLW 38-13. However, the next two weeks may be more difficult when home games come against Hawaii and then BYuT on the road. The Broncos were among the least-punished teams in the FBS until Saturday night, when they were 10 for 130 yards. Two fouls on 15 yards helped UNLW score the only touchdown. The good news: The Broncos received two key pieces for UNLV when Deandre Pierce and right-handed John Oyukwu returned for the first time since opening at FSU.
Next: vs. Hawaii (Saturday, 22:15 ET, ESPN2)
The Wolverines finally won a game that mattered by taking home Iowa 10-3 and they can thank their defense for the win . The Michigan "D" gave just 1 rushing yard, largely due to eight sacks, and allowed Iowa to run its backs averaging just 3.2 yards per carry. The Michigan offense still had a lot to be desired, as the Wolverines didn't score in the last half minute and turned Iowa's four turnovers by just three points. Michigan had just 147 yards on 26 attempts and went 3-for-13 on third down.
Next: in Illinois (Saturday, noon ET, ABC)
The Sun Devils Should Be More Equipped After Their Week on Defense to Protect the Happy Pass of Washington State after Three Key Defenders were able to recover from prolonged injuries.

Demons-saying goodbye was one of the best stories in college football this season. They have won seven games in a row, going back to the final two of 2018, marking the longest winning streak in school history, also made by the 1944 squad. For the first time since 2006, when they went 11-2, won the ACC and played in the Orange Bowl.

Matt Raul's wonderful work at Baylor lasted when the Bears won 31-12 at Kansas State his first road win in the Big 12 game in two years. Baylor's defense was again the difference, as he had six sacks and 15 tackles for loss – the most in the Bears Big 12 game in more than a decade. One concern: Quarterback's Charlie Brewer left with an undisclosed injury, remaining in the fourth quarter for about 11 minutes. Rayle had no immediate status update. The Bears can be ranked in the next four games before Oklahoma and Texas arrive in November in Waco, Texas.
Next: vs. Texas Tech (Saturday, 4:00 PM ET, TBD)  Iowa turned the ball over once in their first four games, which were tied to Oregon is the lowest in the FBS.

Hoki also handed over eight sacks in a pitiful offensive at the Big House. The Hokies had a few chances to tie the game late, but penalties and other mistakes prevented that possession. At home next weekend against Penn State will not get any easier.
Next: vs. Penny State (Saturday 7:30 p.m., ABC)
The Cavaliers had an extra week to rebound from the 35-20 loss at Notre Dame on September 28.

He had 209 yards – only on 14 carries – Saturday's 52-33 win over UL Monroe, the highest freshman year in school history. Memphis defense handed Warhak 575 yards of offense.

After a quartet of narrow escapes to pass September unbeaten, the Golden Goffers could finally relax in a 40-17 win over Illinois on Saturday. Minnesota's schedule was not great and his performances were not too impressive – he defeated foe FCS 28-21 in South Dakota and battles Georgia Southern 35-32 – but there is also something to be said to figure out how to win. Goffers 5-0 for the first time since 2004.
