Arizona State edges No. 18 Michigan State in wild last minute
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 on Saturday 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, which had rushed the field goal team on in a disorganized fashion.
Coghlin had to try again from farther back after the penalty, and he hooked the kick left for his third miss of the day.
No. 2 Alabama 47, South Carolina 23: Tua Tagovailoa threw for a career-high 444 yards and tied his personal best with five touchdowns to help Alabama open Southeastern Conference play with a road victory.

No. 3 Georgia 55, Arkansas State 0: 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 at home.

No. 6 Ohio State 51, Indiana 10: J.K. Dobbins ran for 193 yards and scored twice while Justin Fields threw three touchdown passes to lead Ohio State to a road win. The Buckeyes (3-0, 1-0 Big Ten) have won each of their first three games by at least 24 points.
No. 7 Notre Dame 66, New Mexico 14: Ian Book threw a career-high five touchdown passes and Notre Dame’s defense came up with three firsthalf interceptions in an easy win at home. The senior Book rebounded from a lackluster opening performance in a 35-17 victory at Louisville to complete 15 of 24 passes for 360 yards.
No. 11 Utah 31, Idaho State 0: Tyler Huntley threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns and Zach Moss ran for 106 yards and another score in Utah’s home win.
