Buckeyes rout Scarlet Knights

Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio – No. 4 Ohio State flashed their cache of riches at quarterback in a 52-3 rout of the outmanned Scarlet Knights, after hanging 77 points on Oregon State in the opener last week.

Dwayne Haskins Jr. threw four touchdown passes to help the Buckeyes win for the 900th time in program history. They became the second program to reach that benchmark behind Michigan (944).

Big Ten

COLORADO 33, NEBRASKA 28: In Lincoln, Nebraska, Steven Montez connected with Laviska Shenault Jr. for a 40-yard touchdown with 1:06 to play and Colorado's defense held at the end.

IOWA 13, IOWA STATE 3: In Iowa City, Iowa, Mekhi Sargent scored on a 2-yard TD run with 4:47 left to help Iowa beat Iowa State for the fourth year in a row.

Miguel Recinos added a pair of field goals for the Hawkeyes (2-0).

No. 21 MICHIGAN 49, WESTERN MICHIGAN 3: In Ann Arbor, Mich., Shea Patterson threw three touchdown passes, one in each of the first three quarters as the Wolverines coasted.

Patterson, the heralded transfer from Mississippi, was 12 of 17 for 125 yards. He connected for two scores to wide receivers after the position group accounted for a total of just three touchdowns last season for the Wolverines (1-1).

No. 5 WISCONSIN 45, NEW MEXICO 14: In Madison, Wis., Jonathan Taylor ran for 253 yards and three touchdowns, and the Badgers asserted their dominance after allowing a score on the game-opening drive.

A.J. Taylor had 134 yards receiving and a score for the Badgers (2-0).

DUKE 21, NORTHWESTERN 7: In Evanston, Ill., Daniel Jones threw for three touchdowns before leaving the game with an apparent injury to lead the Blue Devils.

Jones passed for three TDs in the second quarter, propelling the Blue Devils (2-0) to another victory over the Wildcats (1-1) after pounding them at home last year.

Top 25

No. 2 CLEMSON 28, TEXAS A&M 26: In College Station, Texas, Kelly Bryant threw for 205 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score to help the Tigers escape. Kellen Mond was spectacular in the second half, throwing for three touchdowns, with a 14-yard pass to Kendrick Rogers cutting the lead to 28-26 with 46 seconds left. But his big performance came up just short when the 2-point conversion attempt was intercepted in the end zone.

No. 3 GEORGIA 41, No. 24 SOUTH CAROLINA 17: In Columbia, S.C., Georgia scored three touchdowns in the third quarter to break open what had been a hotly contested game. Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm shook off a first-half interception as the Bulldogs pulled away.


DUQUESNE 23, VALPARAISO 21: In Pittsburgh, A.J. Hines rushed for 137 yards and his third touchdown, with 2:42 to play to lift the Dukes (2-1).

Chris Duncan was 15 of 26 for 229 yards and a touchdown for the Crusaders (0-1) and Kyle Cartales had a pair of 1-yard TD runs.
