No. 1 Clem­son 24, No. 12 Texas A&M 10

CLEM­SON, S.C. — Trevor Lawrence threw for one touch­down and ran for an­other and Clem­son won its record-ty­ing 17th straight game with a dom­i­nat­ing vic­tory.

The Ag­gies (1-1) talked of an up­set all week and fig­ured to be the sternest test left for the de­fend­ing na­tional cham­pi­ons. In­stead, the Tigers (2-0) me­thod­i­cally made plays, stretched out drives and pres­sured A&M ju­nior quar­ter­back Kellen Mond into an aw­ful show­ing.

No. 2 Alabama 62, New Mex­ico State 10

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Tua Tago­v­ailoa passed for three touch­downs and ran 25 yards for a fourth, all in the first half of Alabama’s vic­tory.

The Crim­son Tide (2-0) was off to the races start­ing with the game’s first play, when Henry Ruggs III col­lected a lat­eral and sprinted 75 yards for a touch­down. It didn’t get any bet­ter for the Ag­gies (0-2) af­ter that in swel­ter­ing con­di­tions that con­trib­uted to thou­sands of empty seats at Bryant-Denny Sta­dium.

No. 3 Ge­or­gia 63, Murray State 17

ATHENS, Ga. — D’An­dre Swift ran for two touch­downs, Jake Fromm threw for 166 yards and a score, and No. 3 Ge­or­gia broke loose in the sec­ond quar­ter against FCS school Murray State.

No. 4 Ok­la­homa 70, South Dakota, 14

NOR­MAN, Okla. — Jalen Hurts passed for 259 yards and three touch­downs in just over two quar­ters and Ok­la­homa rolled past South Dakota.

CeeDee Lamb had six catches for 144 yards and a touch­down, and Rha­mon­dre Steven­son ran for 104 yards and a score for the Soon­ers (2-0). They who gained 733 yards against the FCS Coy­otes (0-2).

No. 5 Ohio State 42, Cincin­nati 0

COLUM­BUS, Ohio — Justin Fields passed for two touch­downs and ran for two more scores for Ohio State. J.K. Dob­bins rushed for 141 yards and two touch­downs — all in the first half — as the Buck­eyes (2-0) dis­man­tled Cincin­nati (1-1) in Luke Fick­ell’s re­turn to Ohio Sta­dium. The third-year Bearcats coach played at Ohio State, then spent years on the other side­line as an as­sis­tant, and in­terim coach in 2011.

No. 6 LSU 45, No. 9 Texas 38

AUSTIN, Texas — Joe Bur­row passed for 471 yards and four touch­downs, in­clud­ing a 61-yarder to Justin Jef­fer­son with 2:27 left, and LSU pulled out a wild Vic­tory over Texas.

The big­gest non­con­fer­ence game in Austin since No. 1 Ohio State came to town in 2006 was one the most an­tic­i­pated matchups of the season and de­liv­ered on its prom­ise. Texas stormed back from a 20-7 half­time deficit and the teams traded seven touch­downs in the sec­ond half.

Bur­row and Texas’ Sam Eh­linger picked apart the de­fenses at will. LSU (2-0) didn’t put it away un­til Texas came up inches short from cov­er­ing an on­side kick af­ter its fi­nal touch­down with 22 sec­onds left.

No. 7 Michi­gan 24, Army 21 (2OT)

ANN AR­BOR, Mich. — Jake Moody made a 43-yard field goal and No. 7 Michi­gan forced and re­cov­ered a fum­ble to hold on for a 24-21 dou­ble-over­time vic­tory over Army on Satur­day.

The Wolver­ines (2-0) didn’t lead un­til the sec­ond ex­tra pe­riod and would have lost to the Black Knights (1-1) at the end of reg­u­la­tion if Cole Tal­ley made a 50-yard kick that sailed just short and to the right.

It marked the sec­ond straight year the U.S. Mil­i­tary Academy nearly beat a Top 10 team for the first time in more than a half­cen­tury. The Black Knights pushed No. 5 Ok­la­homa into over­time on the road last year be­fore los­ing 28-21.

Army had won 10 straight since, a run that col­lege foot­ball’s win­ningest pro­gram barely stopped.

In over­time at the quiet Big House, Black Knights quar­ter­back Kelvin Hopkins ran for a go-ahead, 6-yard touch­down and Michi­gan ex­tended the game with Zach Char­bon­net’s third TD. Hopkins was sacked and lost a fum­ble to end the game in the sec­ond over­time.

No. 10 Auburn 24, Tu­lane 6

AUBURN, Ala. — Bo Nix threw for 207 yards and a touch­down, Auburn ran for 172 yards af­ter amass­ing just 20 in the first half and the Tigers’ de­fense dom­i­nated.

With a bro­ken game clock al­ready mak­ing for a slow and low-en­ergy start to the game, the teams combined for 86 yards of of­fense across the first nine drives, with Tu­lane kick­ing a field goal on its open­ing series and Auburn (2-0) los­ing a fum­ble on its sec­ond.

No. 11 Florida 45, UT-Martin 0

GAINESVILL­E, Fla. — Elu­sive re­ceiver Kadar­ius Toney and speedy cor­ner­back CJ Hen­der­son left in the first half and did not re­turn in Florida’s vic­tory over lower-di­vi­sion Ten­nessee-Martin.

Toney took a hit on his left arm late in the first quar­ter, walked off the field in pain and even­tu­ally headed to the locker room for fur­ther eval­u­a­tion.

No. 13 Utah 35, North­ern Illi­nois 17

SALT LAKE CITY — Tyler Hunt­ley passed for one touch­down and ran for an­other and Utah held North­ern Illi­nois to 69 yards in the sec­ond half.

Af­ter a shaky first half, the Utah (2-0) clamped down on the Huskies (1-1) with an ef­fec­tive pass rush, an in­ter­cep­tion and a fourth-down stop. Hunt­ley fin­ished 14 for 19 for 214 yards and ran for 38 yards, with­out a sack for sec­ond straight game.

No. 14 Wash­ing­ton vs. Cal­i­for­nia, late No. 15 Penn State 45, Buf­falo 12

STATE COL­LEGE, Pa. — Sean Clif­ford threw for 280 yards and four touch­downs and Penn State over­came a half­time deficit to beat Buf­falo.

Trail­ing 10-7 at half, the Nit­tany Li­ons (1-0) took the lead for good when John Reid ran back an in­ter­cep­tion 37 yards for a touch­down early in the third.

No. 16 Ore­gon 77, Ne­vada 6

EUGENE, Ore. — Justin Her­bert threw for 310 yards and five touch­downs be­fore head­ing to the side­line in the third quar­ter, and Ore­gon re­bounded from its sea­sonopen­ing loss to Auburn.

The Ducks (1-1) have won 15 straight home open­ers and 24 straight over non­con­fer­ence foes at Autzen Sta­dium. Ore­gon tied a school record with seven touch­down passes — caught by seven re­ceivers. The Ducks also tied their record for points at Autzen.

No. 17 Wis­con­sin 17, Cen­tral Michi­gan 0

MADI­SON, Wis. — Jonathan Tay­lor rushed for three touch­downs and caught a scor­ing pass, Quin­tez Ce­phus scored his first two touch­downs of the season and Wis­con­sin cruised past Cen­tral Michi­gan.

No. 18 UCF 48, FAU 14

BOCA RA­TON, Fla. — Dil­lon Gabriel went 7 for 19 in his first start, but threw touch­down throws of 57 and 74 yards, and UCF ex­tended its reg­u­lar-season win­ning streak to 24 games.

The game was called be­cause of light­ning in the area with 4:20 to play.

No. 19 Michi­gan State 51, Western Michi­gan 17

EAST LANS­ING, Mich. — Dar­rell Ste­wart had 10 catches for 185 yards, and No. 19 Michi­gan State’s ma­ligned of­fense scored touch­downs on its first three drives on the way to a win over Western Michi­gan that gave coach Mark Dan­to­nio a share of the school record for vic­to­ries.

No. 20 Iowa 30, Rut­gers 0

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Nate Stan­ley threw for 236 yards and three touch­downs and Iowa rolled past Rut­gers in the Big Ten opener for both teams.

New Jersey na­tive Ih­mir SmithMarse­tte caught two TD passes for the Hawkeyes (2-0). They’ve al­lowed just 14 points in two games ahead of next week’s ri­valry showdown at No. 25 Iowa State. Smith-Marsette fin­ished with 113 yards re­ceiv­ing.

COL­LEGE PARK, Md. — Josh Jack­son threw for 296 yards and three touch­downs for Mary­land.
