Brian Lew­erke ran for a touch­down and threw for a score in the first half, and vis­it­ing Michi­gan State held on to beat No. 7 Michi­gan, 14-10, on Satur­day night in Ann Ar­bor.

No. 1 Alabama (6-0) def. Texas A&M, 27-19 Damien Har­ris ran for 124 yards and a touch­down to help the Crim­son Tide es­cape the Ag­gies on the road.

No. 2 Clem­son (6-0) def. Wake For­est, 28-14 All eyes will be on the sta­tus of QB Kelly Bryant’s in­jured an­kle; back­ups Hunter John­son and Zer­rick Cooper both played in relief.

No. 3 Ok­la­homa (4-1) lost to Iowa St., 38-31 Af­ter the big­gest up­set of the year so far, is it time to re-chris­ten “Clem­son­ing” as “Sooner­ing”?

No. 4 Penn St. (6-0) def. North­west­ern, 31-7 RB Saquon Bar­ley was largely held in check with 74 rush­ing yards but scored two touch­downs.

No. 5 Ge­or­gia (6-0) def. Van­der­bilt, 45-14 Start­ing LB Na­trez Pa­trick was left home af­ter his ar­rest Thurs­day on mar­i­juana pos­ses­sion charges.

No. 6 Wash­ing­ton (5-0) vs. Cal­i­for­nia, late Coach Chris Peter­son be­moaned the lack of na­tional ex­po­sure that comes with not yet play­ing a game be­fore 8 p.m. Eastern time.

No. 8 TCU (5-0) def. No. 23 West Vir­ginia, 31-24 Kenny Hill’s touch­down run with 2:53 left kept the Horned Frogs the Big 12’s only un­de­feated team.

No. 10 Ohio St. (5-1) def. Mary­land, 62-14 J.T. Bar­rett threw for three touch­downs and ran for an­other in the first half, and the Buck­eyes had their most dom­i­nant de­fen­sive ef­fort in nearly 60 years.
