Eno Ben­jamin reached the ball to the goal line for a 1-yard touch­down run with 50 sec­onds re­main­ing, and Ari­zona State beat No. 18 Michi­gan State 10- 7 af­ter the Spar­tans had a ty­ing field goal negated for hav­ing too many men on the field. Matt Cogh­lin’s 42-yard kick ap­peared to have tied it with 6 sec­onds re­main­ing, but a re­play showed too many men on the field for Michi­gan State.

No. 1 Clem­son 41, Syra­cuse 6

SYRA­CUSE, N.Y. — Trevor Lawrence threw for three touch­downs and ran for an­other and top-ranked Clem­son beat neme­sis Syra­cuse 41-6 on Satur­day night.

Clem­son (3-0, 2-0 At­lantic Coast Con­fer­ence) has won 18 straight games, a school record and the long­est streak in the na­tion. It’s the sec­ond-long­est win­ning streak by an ACC mem­ber in con­fer­ence his­tory, trail­ing a 29-game run by Florida State from 2012-14.

No. 2 Alabama 47, South Carolina 23

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Tua Tago­v­ailoa threw for a ca­reer-high 444 yards and tied his per­sonal best with five touch­downs to help No. 2 Alabama open South­east­ern Con­fer­ence play with a 47-23 vic­tory over South Carolina on Satur­day.

Coach Nick Sa­ban im­proved to 12-1 at Alabama in SEC open­ers and wiped away some bad mem­o­ries of his last visit to Wil­liams-Brice Sta­dium nine years ago.

Tago­v­ailoa and his re­ceivers quickly got the Crim­son Tide (3-0, 1-0) rolling with first-quar­ter TD passes of 24 yards to Na­jee Har­ris and 81 yards to Henry Ruggs III. When­ever the Game­cocks (1-2, 0-1) drew within range, Tago­v­ailoa came right back to re­store Alabama’s edge.

No. 3 Ge­or­gia 55, Arkansas St. 0

ATHENS, Ga. — Jake Fromm threw for 279 yards and three touch­downs be­fore tak­ing the rest of the day off, and Ge­or­gia’s de­fense turned in a dom­i­nat­ing per­for­mance.

Thou­sands of Ge­or­gia fans wore pink in­stead of red to honor Arkansas State coach Blake An­der­son’s wife, Wendy, who died last month from breast cancer.

No. 4 LSU 65, North­west­ern St. 14

BA­TON ROUGE, La. — Joe Bur­row com­pleted 21 of 24 passes for 373 yards and two touch­downs, and LSU pulled away from North­west­ern State in the sec­ond half.

No. 6 Ohio State 51, In­di­ana 10

BLOOM­ING­TON, Ind. — J.K. Dob­bins ran for 193 yards and scored twice, Justin Fields threw three touch­down passes and Ohio State routed In­di­ana.

The Buck­eyes (3-0, 1-0 Big Ten) have won each of their first three games by at least 24 points and ex­tended their win­ning streak in the series to 24, dat­ing to a tie in 1990. Ohio State hasn’t lost to In­di­ana since 1988. And with Pey­ton Ram­sey start­ing at quar­ter­back in place of the in­jured Michael Penix Jr., the Hoosiers (2-1, 0-1) never had a chance.

No. 7 Notre Dame 66, New Mex­ico 14

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Ian Book threw a ca­reer-high five touch­down passes and Notre Dame’s de­fense came up with three first-half in­ter­cep­tions in its fi­nal tuneup be­fore a show­down at No. 3 Ge­or­gia.

Book re­bounded from a lack­lus­ter open­ing per­for­mance in a 35-17 vic­tory at Louisville to com­plete 15 of 24 passes for 360 yards. Book fin­ished with an­other 46 yards rush­ing yards and a 1-yard TD.

No. 8 Auburn 55, Kent State 16

AUBURN, Ala. — JaTarvi­ous Whit­low rushed for 135 yards and two touch­downs and Bo Nix ran and passed for scores to lead Auburn.

The Tigers (3-0) piled up 467 rush­ing yards — and three 100yard rush­ers — in their fi­nal tune up be­fore South­east­ern Con­fer­ence play. They also got some big plays run­ning and pass­ing from Nix, in­clud­ing a 49-yard flea flicker to Eli Stove for a touch­down in the third quar­ter.

No. 9 Florida 29, Ken­tucky 21

LEX­ING­TON, Ky. — Kyle Trask re­lieved an in­jured Feleipe Franks and ral­lied Florida with three fourthquar­ter touch­down drives, in­clud­ing a go-ahead, 4-yard scor­ing run with 4:11 re­main­ing.

Franks, the Ga­tors’ third-year starter, was carted off with a right leg in­jury late in the third quar­ter with his team trail­ing 21-10. Stopped for no gain on fourt­hand-1 at the Ken­tucky 38, Franks ap­peared to bend back­ward on the play. Med­i­cal per­son­nel placed an in­flat­able cast un­der his right leg.

No. 11 Utah 31, Idaho State 0

Pitt opted to kick a field goal on fourth-and-goal at the Penn State 1 trail­ing by a touch­down with less than 4 min­utes to go. Alex Kess­man’s 19-yard at­tempt clanked off the up­right and the Nit­tany Lions (3-0) later turned away Pitt’s last­ditch pos­ses­sion to win their third straight in the series since it was re­newed in 2016.

No. 15 Ore­gon vs. Mon­tana, late No. 16 Texas A&M 62, La­mar 3

OR­LANDO, Fla. — Fresh­man Dil­lon Gabriel threw for 347 yards and four touch­downs in his sec­ond col­lege start, lead­ing UCF past Stan­ford.

The Knights (3-0) scored on six of seven pos­ses­sions, build­ing a 31-point half­time lead in what was ex­pected to be a much tougher test for the two-time de­fend­ing Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence cham­pi­ons, who won their first two games by a com­bined score of 110-14 against Florida A&M and Florida At­lantic.

Ari­zona State 10, No. 18 Michi­gan State 7

EAST LANS­ING, Mich. — Eno Ben­jamin reached the ball to the goal line for a 1-yard touch­down run with 50 sec­onds re­main­ing, and Ari­zona State beat Michi­gan State af­ter the Spar­tans had a ty­ing field goal negated for hav­ing too many men on the field.

Matt Cogh­lin’s 42-yard kick ap­peared to have tied it with 6 sec­onds re­main­ing, but a re­play showed too many men on the field for Michi­gan State (2-1), which had rushed the field goal team on in a dis­or­ga­nized fash­ion. Cogh­lin had to try again from far­ther back, and he hooked the kick left for his third miss of the day.

No. 19 Iowa 18, Iowa State 17

AMES, Iowa — Nate Stanley threw for 201 yards and ran for a score, and Iowa made a big fourth­down stop, al­low­ing the Hawkeyes to beat Iowa State for the fifth straight time.

Tem­ple 20, No. 21 Mary­land 17

PHILADEL­PHIA — Kenny Ye­boah put Tem­ple ahead on a one-handed touch­down catch late in the fourth quar­ter, and the Owls used two clutch stops at the goal line to beat Mary­land.

No. 22 Boise State vs. Port­land State, late No. 23 Wash­ing­ton 52, Hawaii 20

SEATTLE — Ja­cob Ea­son threw a 47-yard touch­down pass to Hunter Bryant on the third play of the game and added two more and Wash­ing­ton re­bounded from a loss beat Hawaii.
