    BB55's Three Studs and Three Duds - 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Week 1

    Three Studs
    1. Oklahoma Sooners QB Jalen Hurts
    Why? Hurts picked up where he left off in Tuscaloosa and returned to his winning ways after having a 508-total scrimmage yards and six-touchdown performance.

    2. Ohio State Buckeyes QB Justin Fields
    Why? Fields picked up where Dwayne Haskins left off as the Buckeyes signal-caller had five total offensive scores in Ohio State's romp over the Florida Atlantic Owls.

    3. Clemson Tigers RB Travis Etienne and Wisconsin Badgers RB Jonathan Taylor
    Why? These two RBs entered the Heisman Trophy discussion.

    Etienne had 205 yards on the ground and a rushing hat trick in Clemson's destruction over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets while Taylor had 183 total yards and two touchdowns rushing and receiving in the Badgers' whitewash over the South Florida Bulls.

    Three Duds
    1. Tennessee Volunteers
    Why? Jeremy Pruitt's sophomore year in Knoxville is off to a very rough start as the Georgia State Panthers stole a victory in their building.

    Georgia State went on a 17-0 run thanks to Vols miscues in the fourth quarter to grab a scalp with a 38-30 victory despite being a 26-point underdog.

    Yikes.

    2. Charlie Strong
    Why? The hotseat in Tampa is getting hotter for Charlie Strong.

    The South Florida Bulls continue to sink as they lost their seventh consecutive game dating back to October 20 when they started 2018 at 7-0 and all seven losses were in double-digits.

    More yikes.

    3. Oregon Ducks
    Why? Another chance for Justin Herbert and the Oregon Ducks to grab a key win to boost their College Football Playoff chances. Another chance slipped away.

    Last year, it was CJ Verdell's lost fumble that allowed the Stanford Cardinal to escape noisy Autzen with a win.

    This year, it's blowing a 21-6 lead and letting the #16 ranked Auburn Tigers off the hook.

    Unless something changes, Oregon and the Pacific-12 Conference will miss out on the CFP yet again.

    #24 ranked Boise State Broncos held off the Marshall Thundering Herd in the Smurf Turf, 14-7.

    It was the men in green who started the scoring as Marshall RB Brendan Knox, who had 71 rushing yards in the game, gored the Boise State defense with a 13-yard touchdown run up the gut to give Marshall a 7-0 lead after the first quarter.

    But Hank Bachmeier and the Broncos offense flexed their muscles the rest of the game.

    The Boise State true freshman QB sneaked in a one-yard touchdown run with 10 seconds left in the first half to tie the game at seven at halftime and found John Hightower with a 47-yard bomb early in the third quarter to give the Broncos a 14-7 lead.

    Bachmeier completed 22 of 34 passes for 282 yards and scored two total touchdowns in the game.

    The Boise State defense kept the Marshall offense at bay yielding 173 yards in the contest despite giving up 113 in the first quarter and had three sacks and two takeaways. Marshall also went 2/9 on third down.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines can start breathing again.

    The #7 ranked team in the nation survived a massive scare inside the Big House after outlasting an upset-minded and pesky Army Black Knights squad, 24-21 in Double Overtime.

    Army drew first blood in the first quarter after Shea Patterson was sacked and lost a fumble which set up Sandon McCoy to punch in a one-yard touchdown run to give the Black Knights a 7-0 lead.

    Michigan replied to tie the game at 7-7 after the first quarter as Zach Charbonnet plunged into the end zone with a two-yard rushing major.

    Both teams lost the football in their next drives with Patterson putting his second lost fumble on the ground after being sacked.

    Michigan coughed the ball up for a third time in the first half when Ben VanSumeren lost it.

    That set up Kelvin Hopkins Jr. banging his way in the end zone from one yard out as Army led 14-7 at halftime.

    Army was about to extend their lead as they drove inside the Michigan five-yard line in their first second-half possession, but Hopkins Jr. threw an interception to Lavert Hill.

    That set up Charbonnet's second one-yard touchdown run of the game as the game was tied at 14-all heading into the fourth.

    Army had a chance to win the game in regulation, but Cole Talley's 50-yard attempt was missed and the game went into overtime.

    Michigan won the toss and elected defense first.

    Hopkins Jr. gave Army a 21-14 lead with his six-yard rushing major, but Charbonnet forced a second overtime period after completing his hat trick from three yards out.

    Charbonnet had 100 yards and three scores on 33 carries.

    Michigan took their first lead of the game in the second overtime period when Jake Moody booted a 43-yard field goal.

    Army had a chance to force Triple OT with a field goal or a win with a touchdown, but Hopkins Jr. was sacked and lost the football which Michigan recovered the lost fumble and the Wolverines survived.

    Both teams had three turnovers in the game, but Michigan's 9/16 third-down conversions trumps Army's 5/16.

    The Terps rushing attack had 354 yards on the ground on 45 carries. Javon Leake led the way with 107 and two scores on seven carries while Anthony McFarland Jr. had 120 total scrimmage yards and three scores.

    The Terps defense also had four sacks and two takeaways in the romp.

    The #5 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes and the #20 Iowa Hawkeyes posted whitewash shutouts.

    Justin Fields and J.K. Dobbins tore up the Horseshoe in the Buckeyes' 42-0 shutout on the Cincinnati Bearcats.

    Fields completed 20 of 25 passes for 224 yards and two scores and added 42 yards and two majors on the ground.

    Dobbins chipped in with 141 yards and two scores on 17 carries.

    The Ohio State defense added five sacks and two takeaways in the shutout.

    Meanwhile in Iowa City's Kinnick Stadium, Kirk Ferentz and the #20 ranked team in the nation was all over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 30-0.

    Iowa QB Nate Stanley completed 16 of 28 passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns, two to Ihmir Smith-Marsette.

    #13 ranked Utah Utes pulled away from the Northern Illinois Huskies, 35-17 in Salt Lake City.

    Utah QB Tyler Huntley completed 13 of 19 passes for 214 yards and a touchdown and added 38 yards and a score on the ground.

    Zack Moss added 80 yards and two majors on 18 carries.

    NIU QB Ross Bowers had 219 passing yards and two total touchdowns in a losing effort for the Huskies, but the Utes defense sacked him four times.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    Second overtime game this week in FBS College Football, the home team wins both contests.

    The Colorado Buffaloes outlast their former Big 8/XII foe Nebraska Cornhuskers again.

    Mel Tucker's squad outlast Scott Frost and the #25 ranked team in the nation, 34-31 in overtime after rallying from a 17-0 deficit in front of their fans in Boulder's Folsom Field.

    Nebraska QB Adrian Martinez helped his team race out to a 17-0 halftime lead with a 65-yard touchdown bomb to JD Spielman in the first quarter and a five-yard touchdown run.

    Issac Armstrong added a 26-yard field goal to complete Nebraska's first half domination.

    But the Buffs never quit.

    Jaren Mangham scored the only points of the third quarter with an 11-yard touchdown run to help Colorado pull to within 10 after three quarters, 17-7.

    Tucker went into the bag of tricks and dialed a flea flicker from his own four yard line and Steven Montez connected with K.D. Nixon at midfield and Nixon shrugs off a tackle to scamper his way into the end zone to make it a three-point ballgame 38 seconds into the fourth quarter, 17-14.

    Martinez replied for Nebraska though with a 75-yard touchdown strike to Maurice Washington 13 seconds later to make it 24-14.

    But Colorado refuses to go away.

    Mangham, who had 44 yards on the ground in the game, scored his second touchdown of the game from seven yards out and James Stefanou slotted home a 20-yard field goal to tie the game at 24 with 8:30 left.

    Martinez gave Nebraska the lead again with his second touchdown run of the game with a six yard scamper up the gut as the Cornhuskers led 31-24 with 5:49 remaining in regulation.

    However, Colorado forced overtime thanks to Montez's second touchdown pass of the game to Tony Brown from 26 yards out to make it a 31-31 game with 46 seconds left.

    Montez completed 28 of 41 passes for 375 yards and two touchdowns despite throwing an interception and sacked three times.

    Nebraska had a chance to drive into field goal range, but Martinez threw a pick that forced overtime.

    Martinez completed 16 of 26 passes for 290 yards and two touchdowns and added 66 and two majors on the ground, but was sacked six times and Nebraska had three turnovers.

    Nebraska won the coin toss and elected defense first.

    Stefanou gave the Buffs their first lead of the game with a 34-yard field goal straight down the middle.

    Nebraska had a chance to force a second overtime with a field goal or win the game with a touchdown.

    However, Martinez was sacked on third down and forced Armstrong to make a long kick to tie the game at 34.

    But Armstrong's 48-yard attempt was hooked to the right and Colorado pulled off the upset.

    Frost is now 0-6 on the road as Nebraska head coach.

    Meanwhile in Death Valley, the #1 ranked team in the nation, the Clemson Tigers defeated the #12 ranked Texas A&M Aggies, 24-10.

    Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence completed 24 of 35 passes for 268 yards and a touchdown and added a touchdown run.

    Lyn-J Dixon chipped in with 79 rushing yards and a rushing major on 11 carries.

    The Clemson defense kept Kellen Mond and the Aggies offense at bay yielding 289 yards and the Aggies didn't score a touchdown until with six seconds left in the game when Mond found Jalen Wydermyer on a two-yard dink.

    Buffalo did outscore Penn State 10-0 in the second quarter to take a 10-7 halftime lead.

    Matt Myers had 245 passing yards and a touchdown throw to Julien Bourassa from six yards out, but the Penn State defense had two takeaways including a 37-yard pick-six from John Reid as part of their 28-3 third quarter demolition.

    There was a scary moment in the same quarter.

    Buffalo P Evan Finegan snapped his leg during a collision while punting.

    #6 ranked LSU Tigers scored a big win on the road as they held off the #9 ranked Texas Longhorns, 45-38 in a high-scoring clash in Austin.

    The LSU defense stuffed them both times.

    LSU QB Joe Burrow completed 31 of 39 passes for 471 yards and three touchdowns, three to Justin Jefferson who also caught nine balls for 163 yards.

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire added 87 rushing yards and a score.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    Playing their first game without their starting quarterback J.T. Daniels, who suffered a season-ending knee injury, Clay Helton and the USC Trojans go to 2-0 after a 45-20 pull away on the #23 ranked Stanford Cardinal.

    Chase McGrath started the scoring with a 23-yard field goal, but David Shaw and the Cardinal went on a 17-0 run to take a 17-3 lead very early in the second quarter.

    David Mills, filling in for the injured K.J. Costello, delivered a 15-yard touchdown strike to Connor Wedington to give Stanford a 7-3 lead after the first quarter.

    Cameron Scarlett, who led all players with 87 rushing yards, made it 14-3 four seconds into the second quarter with a three-yard touchdown run and Jet Toner made it 17-3 with a 32-yard field goal 1:09 later.

    It was all USC from there.

    USC true freshman QB Kedon Slovis, filling in for the injured Daniels, completed 28 of 33 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns. Vavae Malepeai added two touchdown runs.

    Meanwhile in Seattle, Justin Wilcox and the California Golden Bears go to 2-0 after beating Chris Petersen and the #14 ranked Washington Huskies again, 20-19.

    After a scoreless first quarter that was compounded by a severe weather delay, Washington jumped up to a 10-0 lead in the second quarter.
    https://www.mercurynews.com/2019/09/...lengthy-delay/

    Peyton booted a 36-yard field goal and Salvon Ahmed, who had 119 rushing yards on 21 carries, had a 21-yard touchdown run.

    But Cal kept themselves in the game as Greg Thomas connected on a 23-yard field goal to make it a 10-3 deficit at halftime.

    The Golden Bears kept the momentum going in the third quarter as Marcel Dancy, who had 72 rushing yards, had two touchdown runs to give Cal a 17-13 lead. Henry's second field goal of the game from 21 yards out was the only points Washington had in the third.

    Henry kicked two more field goals of 25 and 49 yards to give the Huskies a 19-17 lead with two minutes left.

    But Cal stunned Seattle when Thomas booted a 17-yard field goal with eight seconds left to give Cal the upset.

    The Cal defense had four sacks on Jacob Eason and had two takeaways.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    BB55's Three Studs and Three Duds - College Football Week 2

    Three Studs
    1. Colorado Buffaloes
    Why? For the second year in a row, the Colorado Buffaloes beat their old Big XII foe Nebraska Cornhuskers.

    The Buffs never had a lead in the game until overtime as Mel Tucker's Buffs came back from deficits of 17-0 at halftime, 24-14 early in the fourth quarter and 31-24 with a minute to go in regulation to steal victory from Scott Frost's hands.

    Steven Montez threw for 375 yards and two touchdowns and the Buffs defense had six sacks.

    2. Maryland Terrapins
    Why? Two games into the Mike Locksley era, two blowout wins after clobbering #21 ranked Syracuse Orange like a pinata, 63-20.

    Former Virginia Tech Hokies QB Josh Jackson threw for 296 yards and three touchdowns and the Terps rushing attack added 354.

    Keep this up and Maryland could find themselves in a bowl game.

    3. LSU Tigers QB Joe Burrow
    Why? The new offense is helping Joe Burrow thrive.

    Joe Burrow completed 31 of 39 passes for 471 yards and three touchdowns in Austin against #9 ranked Texas Longhorns.

    Three Duds
    1. Tennessee Volunteers
    Why? The Vols found another way to lose. This time, it was to the BYU Cougars 29-26 in overtime after a miracle bomb and a late game-tying field goal in the fourth quarter.

    It's getting ugly in Neyland Stadium.

    2. South Florida Bulls
    Why? Add the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets to the losing streak for Charlie Strong's USF Bulls.

    Eight losses in a row after a 7-0 start in 2018 for USF and Strong's hot seat is the sun.

    3. UCLA Bruins
    Why? Chip Kelly's sophomore year in Westwood is off to a rocky start in 2019 with an 0-2 clip as the Bruins offense only muster up a total of 28 points in their defeats to the Cincinnati Bearcats and San Diego State Aztecs.

    Even worse, Jalen Hurts and the Oklahoma Sooners come to Pasadena in Week 3. Ouch!

    #20 ranked Washington State Cougars go to 3-0 overall after using a second-half burst to down the Houston Cougars inside NRG Stadium, 31-24.

    After a scoreless first quarter, Houston Cougars QB D'Eriq King gave Dana Holgersen's squad a 14-7 halftime lead with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Marquez Stevenson and a one-yard touchdown run.

    Wazzou QB Anthony Gordon helped Mike Leach's side score their only points in the first half with a 39-yard touchdown strike to Easop Winston Jr.

    But Washington State took over the second half as they outscored Houston 24-10.

    After King and his center lost the football on a fourth and one near midfield early in the third quarter, Wazzou pounced when Max Borghi banged his way into the end zone from one yard out to tie the game at 14.

    Gordon found Dezmon Patmon up the gut from 39 yards out to give Washington State a 21-14 lead heading into the fourth quarter.

    After Dalton Witherspoon booted a 42-yard field goal to make it a 21-17 ballgame, Gordon threw his third touchdown pass of the game to Travell Harris from seven yards out to give Washington State a 28-17 lead with 6:43 to go.

    Blake Mazza made it 31-17 with a 22-yard field goal with 3:50 to go.

    King scored his second rushing touchdown of the game with a 12-yard scamper to make it 31-24 with 2:21 remaining in regulation, but Washington State recovered the onside kick to seal the victory.

    King completed 13 of 24 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown along with 94 yards on the ground and two scores, but was sacked twice and Houston had two turnovers.

    Gordon was Wazzou's hero completing 36 of 48 passes for 440 yards and three touchdowns.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    #3 ranked Georgia Bulldogs whitewashed the Arkansas State Red Wolves, 55-0 inside Sanford Stadium.

    Georgia QB Jake Fromm completed 17 of 22 passes for 279 yards and three second quarter touchdowns.

    Georgia RB D'Andre Swift had 140 total scrimmage yards and a 48-yard touchdown reception.

    The UGA defense yielded 220 yards and four sacks.

    Meanwhile in the Big Ten, there was a blowout, a scare and an upset.

    #6 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes routed the Indiana Hoosiers in Bloomington, 51-10.

    Justin Fields completed 14 of 24 passes for 199 yards and three touchdowns and added a touchdown run.

    J.K. Dobbins led the Ohio State rushing attack with 193 yards and a score on 22 carries.

    The Buckeyes defense had five sacks and a pick-six while their special teams blocked a punt for a safety.

    In the Whiteout at Happy Valley, the #13 ranked Penn State Nitany Lions held off the Pittsburgh Panthers 17-10.

    James Franklin needed his defense to survive inside Beaver Stadium as the Nitany Lions defense yielded only 24 rushing yards from the Pitt offense.

    Devyn Ford started the scoring in the first quarter with a one-yard touchdown run.

    However, Pitt went on a 10-0 run to take a 10-7 lead with Alex Kessman booting a 25-yard field goal and Vincent Davis found the end zone with a three-yard touchdown run as Pitt was in front with 2:08 remaining.

    Penn State made it a 10-10 deadlock at halftime when Jordan Stout booted a 57-yard field goal.

    Noah Cain scored the only points of the game in the second half with a 13-yard touchdown run as Penn State was in front 17-10 after three quarters.

    Sean Clifford didn't have a good day throwing the football as he completed 14 of 30 passes for 222 yards, but Journey Brown helped him out with 109 rushing yards on 10 carries.

    Pitt QB Kenny Pickett kept Pitt in the game with his arm completing 35 of 51 passes for 372 yards including a fourth and one from their own 43-yard line to Nakia Griffin-Stewart for a 36-yard gain and another to Taysir Mack for 29 yards to the Penn State one-yard line with five minutes remaining.

    However, Kessman pulled his 19-yard field goal attempt wide lift as the lead was still seven.

    Pitt had a chance to force overtime in the dying seconds, but Pickett's pass in the end zone was knocked down and Penn State survived.

    It was a very rough day offensively for the #21 ranked Maryland Terrapins as the Temple Owls upset them inside the Linc, 20-17.

    Temple Owls QB Anthony Russo completed 20 of 37 passes for 277 yards and three touchdowns.

    Maryland Terrapins QB Josh Jackson had 183 passing yards and a touchdown, but was sacked four times.

    Anthony McFarland Jr. added 132 rushing yards and a major on 26 carries, but was stuffed in the one-yard line as Maryland turned the ball over on downs inside the five with 3:59 remaining despite DJ Turner's 55-yard punt return deep into Temple territory.

    Maryland turned the ball over on downs again with 2:20 remaining as Jackson's pass was incomplete down the middle as the Terps QB completed 15 of 38 passes.

    We're going to overtime in Provo.

    The #24 ranked USC Trojans and the BYU Cougars are deadlocked in 27-all.

    Rules for Overtime:
    - Winner of coin toss decides offense, defense or end of field
    - Both teams start at 25-yard line
    - One timeout per period
    - First two possessions: 1 or 2 XP after a touchdown
    - Starting with the third possession: 2-point conversion after a touchdown

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    For the second straight game, Kalani Sitake and the Brigham Young Cougars needed overtime to win.

    Last week, it was on the road inside Knoxville's Neyland Stadium against the Tennessee Volunteers.

    This week, it was in front of their home fans in Provo as BYU grabbed a scalp against the #24 ranked Southern California Trojans in overtime, 30-27.

    It was USC who drew first blood though as Clay Helton's true freshman QB Kedon Slovis threw a eight-yard touchdown pass to Michael Pittman Jr. as the Trojans led 7-0 almost five minutes into the game.

    But BYU went on a 10-0 run to close out the first quarter leading 10-7.

    Dayan Ghanwoloku tied the game at 7 a piece with a one-yard plunge and Jacob Oldroyd booted a 23-yard field goal.

    USC won the second quarter 10-7 to make it a 17-17 stalemate at halftime.

    Chase McGrath tied the game at 10-all with a 27-yard field goal.

    BYU regained the lead when Zach Wilson found Dax Milne from 30 yards out to make it 17-10 BYU almost five minutes later.

    Vavae Malepeai, who had 96 rushing yards in the game, levelled the scores at 17-all with a five-yard touchdown run.

    After a scoreless third quarter, both teams scored 10 points each in the fourth to force overtime.

    Slovis threw his second touchdown pass of the game to Pittman Jr. from 30 yards out to give USC a 24-17 lead with 10:45 to go in regulation.

    The touchdown was reviewed though to see if Pittman Jr. was forced out or did he go out of bounds in his own power. The replay stated that Pittman Jr. was forced out and therefore was allowed to come back into the field of play and touch the ball. Touchdown stood.

    But BYU went on another 10-0 run to take a 27-24 lead with 5:41 to go.

    Oldroyd kicked his second field goal of the game from 32 yards out and Wilson had an amazing 16-yard scamper into the end zone.

    USC forced overtime when McGrath also kicked his second field goal of the game from 52 yards out.

    USC won the coin toss for the first overtime period and elected defense.

    BYU took the lead in overtime when Oldroyd kicked his third field goal of the game from 43 yards out.

    USC had a chance to either force Double Overtime with a field goal or win the game with a touchdown.

    However, Slovis, who threw two interceptions in regulation, threw his third pick of the game and BYU wins a thriller.

    The interception was reviewed, but it stood.

    Slovis completed 24 of 34 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns, but threw three interceptions.

    Wilson was BYU's hero with 290 total offensive yards and two total offensive majors.

    Meanwhile, USC's next opponent, the #11 ranked Utah Utes blanked the Idaho State Bengals 31-0.

    Utah QB Tyler Huntley completed 15 of 19 passes for 282 yards and three touchdowns, two to Bryan Thompson.

    Zack Moss added 106 rushing yards and a score on 10 carries for Kyle Whittingham's squad.

    The Arizona State Sun Devils stunned the Michigan State Spartans again.

    Herm Edward's Sun Devils beat a ranked Spartans team last year in front of their fans. This time, the Sun Devils beat the #18 ranked team in the nation, 10-7, in East Lansing.

    Michigan State outgained Arizona State 404-216, but can only muster up seven points.

    The first and third quarters were scoreless.

    Christian Zendejas booted a 41-yard field goal to give Arizona State a 3-0 halftime lead.

    The first touchdown of the game didn't come until 8:37 remaining in regulation when Elijah Collins, who had 72 rushing yards in the game, found paydirt from nine yards out to give Michigan State a 7-3 lead.

    However, Eno Benjamin won it for the Sun Devils with a one-yard touchdown run with 50 seconds remaining.

    Michigan State K Matt Coghlin didn't help matters either for Mark D'Antonio's men as he missed all three of his field goal attempts.

    #17 ranked Central Florida Knights shredded the Stanford Cardinal, 45-27 inside the Bounce House.

    The Stanford defense had no answer for UCF QB Dillon Gabriel who completed 22 of 30 passes for 347 yards and four touchdowns and Knights RB Greg McCrae added 109 yards and a major on 11 carries.

    Ryan Hilinski had 324 yards and two scores through the air in a losing effort for South Carolina.

    The Bama defense though swallowed up the former Washington State Cougars QB with three sacks and had two takeaways.

    Ian Book had a great bounce back game as the #7 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish plastered the New Mexico Lobos, 66-14.

    Book completed 15 of 24 passes for 360 yards and five touchdowns and was Notre Dame's leading rusher with 46 yards and a score.

    The Irish defense had four takeaways including a pick-six in the first quarter from Kyle Hamilton.

    The Auburn defense had five sacks.

    Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators got their revenge on the Kentucky Wildcats.

    The #9 ranked team in the nation pulled away from the Wildcats inside Lexington's Kroger Field in a 29-21 victory.

    Gators QB Feleipe Franks helped Florida score the only points of the first quarter with a 15-yard touchdown strike to Freddie Swain as the Gators led 7-0 after the first quarter.

    But Franks had to leave the game with a leg injury.
    https://www.dailyherald.com/article/...rts/309149848/

    However, Kentucky dominated the second and third quarters outscoring Florida 21-3 to take a 21-10 lead into the fourth quarter.

    Sawyer Smith found Ahmad Wagner from 26 yards out to tie the game at seven early in the second quarter and plunged his way into the end zone from a yard out to give Kentucky a 14-7 halftime lead.

    After Evan McPherson booted a 32-yard field goal to make it a 14-10 ballgame nearly halfway through the third quarter, Smith gave Kentucky a 21-10 lead after three quarters with his second touchdown pass of the game to Keaton Upshaw from 13 yards out.

    Florida responded with a 19-0 shutout in the fourth quarter to escape with a victory.

    Lamical Perine made it a 21-16 ballgame with a eight-yard touchdown run with 12:46 left. Two-point conversion failed.

    The Gators rushing attack punished Kentucky again to take the lead when Kyle Trask, filling in for the injured Franks, gored the Wildcats defense with a four-yard touchdown run to give Florida a 22-21 lead with 4:11 remaining.

    Kentucky had a chance to take the lead late in the game, but Chance Poore missed a 35-yard field goal attempt wide right with 58 seconds left.

    That allowed the Gators to seal the victory when Josh Hammond trampled the Kentucky defense with a 76-yard touchdown run to give Florida a 29-21 lead with 44 seconds left.

    Smith and the Wildcats need a touchdown and a two-point conversion to tie the game and force overtime, but Smith, who had 267 passing yards and two touchdowns, threw his third interception of the game that sealed Kentucky's fate.

    #4 ranked LSU Tigers pulled away from the Northwestern State Demons with a 41-0 dominating second half to cruise to a 65-14 victory.

    LSU QB Joe Burrow picked up where he left off against Texas last week after completing 21 of 24 passes for 373 yards and two touchdowns, both to Terrace Marshall Jr., and added a rushing score.

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire added 50 yards and two rushing scores.

    Kirk Ferentz and the #18 ranked Iowa Hawkeyes had to rally to outlast the Iowa State Cyclones in Ames, 18-17.

    https://www.montgomeryadvertiser.com...ng/2327831001/

    https://www.kcci.com/article/watch-c...-1230/29048210

    Keith Duncan gave Iowa a 3-0 lead with a 25-yard field goal before Matt Campbell and the Cyclones went into the bag of tricks and pulled out a gadget play when Deshaunte Jones found LaMichael Pettway for a 51-yard strike to give Iowa State a 7-3 lead after the first quarter.

    Duncan helped Iowa pull to within a point at halftime, 7-6, with his second field goal of the game from 40 yards out.

    Brock Purdy, who had 276 yards on 24 of 34 completions, finds Tarique Milton who catch and ran 73 yards to the house as the Cyclones led 14-6 early in the third quarter.

    Duncan kept Iowa in the game with his third field goal of the game from 40 yards out as Iowa State led 14-9 after three quarters.

    #25 ranked Virginia Cavaliers had to rally to break Florida State Seminoles' hearts in a 31-24 victory.

    Seminoles QB James Blackman completed 22 of 37 passes for 234 yards and three touchdowns as Florida State had 17-10 and 24-17 leads.

    But Virginia QB Bryce Perkins, despite throwing two interceptions and sacked twice, kept the Cavaliers in the game with 295 passing yards and a 12-yard touchdown pass to Joe Reed.

    Wayne Taulapapa had a rushing hat trick including the go-ahead score which also saw Perkins converting the two points with a touchdown run.

    The Seminoles had first and goal in the Virginia four-yard line with 13 seconds left, but Cam Akers was tackled in bounds with no timeouts left and Virginia hung on to win.
