College football: No. 3 Clemson manhandles No. 14 Louisville; Mississippi State upsets LSU – Los Angeles Times

The Wolverines (3-0) didn’t lead by more than three points until Peoples-Jones’ touchdown early in the third quarter.

The Falcons (1-1) failed to convert a pass until Arion Worthman threw a short pass to Ronald Cleveland and the receiver turned it into a 64-yard touchdown play with 11:54 left in the quarter that pulled the service academy within three points again.

Nordin kicked two more field goals, late in the third and early in the fourth, to share a single-game school mark with three players.

Michigan’s Wilton Speight was 14 of 23 for 169 yards, missing some targets and having some passes dropped. Ty Isaac ran for 89 yards on 16 carries.

at No. 8 Ohio State 38, Army 7: Freshman J.K. Dobbins ran for 172 yards and a pair of touchdowns to help the Buckeyes rebound from last week’s deflating loss to Oklahoma.

Dobbins broke away for an electrifying 52-yard touchdown run to open the second half after romping for 22 yards on the previous play, extending Ohio State’s 17-7 halftime lead. The Buckeyes (2-1) then got touchdowns on two of their next three drives to pull away.

J.T. Barrett, the target this week of critics who suggested he should be benched after the 31-16 loss to the Sooners, completed 25 of 33 passes for 270 yards and two touchdowns, albeit against the less-talented defense of Army (2-1).

No. 9 Oklahoma State 59, at Pittsbrugh 21: Mason Rudolph threw five touchdown passes, all in the first half, for the Cowboys.

Rudolph completed 23 of 32 passes for 497 yards before being pulled in the middle of the third quarter with the Cowboys (3-0) in full command. He did throw his first interception of the season, ending a streak of 216 passes without a pick dating to last season. It was the longest active streak in the FBS.

Jalen McCleskey caught seven passes for 162 yards and three touchdowns. James Washington added 124 yards receiving. Marcell Ateman (109) and Dillon Stoner (100) also reached the 100-yard receiving mark, the first time in 12 years a team has had four 100-yard receivers in a game. The Cowboys did it despite missing LSU transfer Tyron Johnson, suspended for the game for a violation of team rules.

The Cowboys reached the end zone on each of their first seven possessions, including a pair of touchdown runs by Justice Hill. Oklahoma State converted all nine of its third downs in the opening half. Pitt dropped to 1-2.

No. 10 Wisconsin 40, at Brigham Young 6: Alex Hornibrook threw for 256 yards and four scores as the Badgers (3-0) met little resistance from the Cougars, who were playing without starting quarterback Tanner Mangum.

Hornibrook completed 10 of 11 passes in the first half for 149 yards and two touchdowns. The second half was more of the same as he hit on all eight attempts. Freshman Jonathan Taylor rushed for 128 yards and scored once in 18 carries. The Badgers outgained the Cougars (1-3) by nearly 300 yards, 491-192.

BYU quarterback Beau Hoge, son of former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Merril, made his first career start, having his first pass intercepted and finishing with 111 yards and two interceptions.

at No. 13 Georgia 42, Samford 14: Nick Chubb ran for 131 yards and two touchdowns, freshman Jake Fromm threw three scoring passes in his first home start, and Georgia’s defense was dominant.

With fellow senior Sony Michel held out with an ankle injury sustained last week in a victory at Notre Dame, Chubb had his busiest game of the season. Chubb’s season-high 16 carries, all in the first three quarters, helped him become the first Bulldogs back to run for 100 yards this season.

Chubb was stopped on a fourth-down run on the Bulldogs’ opening drive, and he rarely was stopped again. He had back-to-back 20-yard runs to open Georgia’s next drive and added a 32-yard scoring run late in the opening quarter. Chubb scored on a 14-yard run early in the third quarter before watching backups handle the remainder of the carries.

Georgia (3-0) avoided a letdown following the emotional win at Notre Dame.

Chubb already had 94 yards rushing and a touchdown by the end of the opening quarter while Samford (2-1) was still without a first down.

at No. 15 Auburn 24, Mercer 10: Kamryn Pettway ran for 128 yards and three touchdowns to help the Tigers overcame five turnovers and hold off FCS Bears. After being held without a touchdown in a 14-6 loss at third-ranked Clemson the previous week, Auburn (2-1) could at least point to a stout defensive opponent as the reason for its troubles.

Not this time. Mercer (1-2), which only resumed its football program five years ago and plays a division down in the Southern Conference, gave the Tigers all they could handle, much to a chagrin of a disgruntled crowd at Jordan-Hare Stadium — many of whom didn’t bother returning to their seats after a lackluster first half in which the Southeastern Conference powerhouse led only 10-3.

Much of Auburn’s woes could be attributed to an inability to hold onto the ball. The Tigers lost three fumbles in the first half and another returning a punt on what should’ve been their first possession of the second half. Jason Stidham also had an interception when Kam Lott ripped the ball away from Nate Craig-Myers , a lackluster effort by the intended receiver that symbolized the entire afternoon.

No. 16 Virginia Tech 64, at East Carolina 17: Redshirt freshman Josh Jackson threw for 372 yards and five touchdowns — three to Cam Phillips — to lead the Hokies to victory. Phillips had a program-record 14 catches for 189 yards to help the Hokies improve to 3-0 for the first time since 2011. He punctuated his day with a perfectly executed route that left him wide open, and Jackson hit him in stride for a 45-yard score with 7:46 left in the third quarter.
