Baylor is good, and that could be a problem

The season at Baylor is uncomfortable and its scandal still simmers. On the field, the Bears are as good as ever. As they become Big 12 favorites, how will the college football world react?

Texas' defense getting shredded yet again. Oklahoma State with five touchdowns and 390 yards of offense in the first half already. Cowboys lead 37-25 at halftime.

Hawkeyes take lead shortly before half

Iowa QB C.J. Beathard throws a 15-yard TD pass to Riley McCarron to take the lead over Northwestern late in the second quarter. The Hawkeyes lead 21-17 at halftime.


Matt Fortuna ESPN Staff Writer 

UVA standout Andrew Brown was just carted off the field at Duke with what looked like a shoulder injury. Tough, tough break for the former ballyhooed recruit who was having a breakout season.

After an early interception, J.T. Barrett's Heisman Trophy campaign is up and rolling again after throwing four first-half touchdowns against Rutgers. But there might be another offensive threat for the Buckeyes worthy of some Heisman hype with Curtis Samuel continuing to be a multipurpose weapon: The do-it-all H-back had 59 rushing yards and 70 receiving yards with a touchdown during another productive half for Ohio State.

Florida struggling at Vanderbilt

Florida RB Jordan Scarlett breaks through the Vandy defense for the only TD of the first half. The No. 23 Gators lead 10-3 at halftime.


Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Florida's offensive line has had its hands full with Vanderbilt's defensive front. The Commodores have four tackles for loss in the first half and Vanderbilt senior defensive lineman Adam Butler has been particularly dominant, racking up two sacks already. The No. 23 Gators have a 10-3 advantage at halftime.

Matt Fortuna ESPN Staff Writer 

AJ Reed connects on a career-long 38-yard FG to give Duke a 10-6 lead on UVA in the second quarter, a bit of a breakthrough for Duke after 2 Daniel Jones interceptions. Can the Hoos do anything with the ball, though? They have 5 penalties and have not gotten the ground game going at all yet.

Josh Moyer ESPN Staff Writer 

It's pretty overcast today at Beaver Stadium, where Penn State and Minnesota will meet at 3:30 p.m. It's essentially rained here for 3-4 days in a row, so running the ball should be especially important -- which should be an especially big problem for PSU. The Nittany Lions have all sorts of issues in the trenches, and at linebacker, so bad weather should only help the Gophers in this game.

Oklahoma State reclaims the lead

Cowboys QB Mason Rudolph finds a wide-open Jalen McCleskey up the middle for a 36-yard TD. Oklahoma State leads No. 22 Texas 30-25 in the second quarter on ABC.


Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

Oklahoma State is actually outscoring Texas on Texas' four extra-point attempts, 2-to-1. Cowboys up 30-25 in the second quarter.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

These Badgers fans from Green Bay made it to the Big House for Wisconsin-Michigan.

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

This is hammerschlagen. Wisconsin fans are bringing some of their own flavor to the Michigan tailgate scene today.

Where's the defense in Stillwater?

Texas QB Shane Buechele connects with a wide-open Andrew Beck for a 42-yard TD. After the PAT was blocked, No. 22 Texas leads Oklahoma State 25-23 on ABC.


Miami honors Jose Fernandez with decal

The Miami Hurricanes will honor Jose Fernandez with a helmet decal in memory of the Marlins ace.


Austin Ward ESPN Staff Writer 

J.T. Barrett has another school record to his credit after his third touchdown pass of the first half. The Ohio State QB needed just 27 games to rack up 58 touchdowns through the air, passing Bobby Hoying to take over the top spot for the storied program.

Rudolph's run gives Cowboys the lead

Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph fakes the handoff before rolling to the left and diving for the 10-yard TD. This gave the Cowboys a short-lived lead on ABC.


Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

Oklahoma State has now blocked THREE consecutive extra point attempts by Texas, including returning the second for a two-pointer. Texas leads, 25-23.

Adams attempts to hurdle defender

Notre Dame WR Josh Adams attempted to hurdle a Syracuse defender at the end of a 44-yard reception. He was stopped, but the big play set up a TD. The Irish lead 30-20 on ESPN.


Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

The Badgers have arrived at the Big House.

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

Baylor's defense had been holding teams to a Big 12-best 0.9 points per drive going into today. Iowa State has TDs on its first 3 drives and a 21-7 lead. The Cyclones are doing anything they want today, particularly on the ground.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Perhaps the Miami defense is for real. The Hurricanes have completely flipped the script with their defense under Manny Diaz, and blew open its game against Georgia Tech with back-to-back scoop-and-scores in the second quarter. Miami went into Saturday ranking No. 2 in the nation in total D, No. 1 in tackles for loss and No. 4 in rush D.

Texas takes lead over Oklahoma State

Texas' Tyrone Swoopes enters the game and breaks a couple of tackles on this go-ahead 12-yard TD run. No. 22 Texas leads Oklahoma State 20-16 on ABC.
