Florida hasn't been perfect, but the Gators have played with an edge in jumping out to a 21-3 halftime lead over Tennessee. It was obvious in talking with Florida coach Jim McElwain this offseason that the Gators felt like Tennessee and even Georgia, with Kirby Smart coming aboard as coach, were getting a lot of hype when it was Florida that actually won the East last season. McElwain's pet response all summer was, "We're still going to go play those games. I don't think we'll forfeit."

John Wolford is inconsistent as a passer, but Wake Forest coaches are giving Wolford a chance to succeed with first-down throws. He's 5 of 6 throwing on first down, including a 26-yard touchdown. Underdog Wake leads 21-7 at half against Indiana.

Move in day for Oregon students was Thursday so I was expecting this to be the rowdiest game day yet (especially since it's the Ducks' first conference opponent). But, with kick off in less than 10 minutes, the student section isn't even full yet.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Tennessee had five drops in the first half Saturday. That's more drops than the Volunteers had in their previous 10 games combined.

Tonight marks the first time that a Sun Belt school HOSTS a top 10 opponent. Texas State welcomes #6 Houston to Bobcat Stadium (7PM EST, ESPNU). Houston head coach Tom Herman and Texas State head coach Everett Withers both served as coordinators at Ohio State under Urban Meyer. Herman and Withers also coached together at Texas under Mack Brown.

Tennessee jogs into its tunnel to the sound of boos from the home crowd with the Gators up 21-3. Tennessee tied a team-high five drops in a single game all in the first half and got just three points on three trips inside the red zone. This is the second time Tennessee has scored just three points in the first half (Week 1 vs. App State). The Gators have taken care of business in the red zone, scoring three touchdowns on three visits and are out-gaining the Vols 300-162. Florida is also 4 of 7 on third downs, while Tennessee is 3 of 10

Turnovers have made all the difference for Indiana. This team can move down the field with the best of the Big Ten, but Richard Lagow has thrown three picks and Wake Forest has capitalized for the 21-7 halftime lead. The Demon Deacons have 14 points off the turnovers; IU has only punted once.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Michigan's 28 first-half points against Penn State are the most the Wolverines have scored in a first half against the Nittany Lions. This is the sixth first-half shutout for Michigan in the last two seasons, tied with Florida for the most in the FBS during that time.

It's going to be a hot one when Auburn and LSU kick off at 5 p.m. CT (ESPN). The heat index on the field is over 100 degrees.

The boo birds are out at Notre Dame Stadium at halftime, and why wouldn't they be? The Irish have been sloppy in all three phases so far, allowing redshirt freshman QB Daniel Jones to go 13 of 15 for 147 yards and 2 TDs in leading Duke to a 28-21 lead. The Irish have missed a field goal, given away a fumble and allowed a kick return TD. Additionally, Duke is without its best player in DeVon Edwards (leg). But the Blue Devils have bounced back from an early 14-0 hole, and they'll also get back safety Deondre Singleton, who had to sit the first half because of targeting last week.

Crowd favorite: We're less than two hours from kickoff, and LSU star Leonard Fournette is taking pictures with fans inside Jordan-Hare Stadium.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Syracuse's Amba Etta-Tawo had a school-record 270 receiving yards in the Orange's win at Connecticut. The previous record (249 by Scott Schwedes against Boston College) was set in 1985. The 270 yards are the fourth-most in a game in ACC history.

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

Don Brown said this week he wanted to force Penn State into a lot of "high freeze" (looking to sideline for the play after initially getting set) to slow things down. He has, and it's working. Michigan has sacks on one-third of the Nittany Lions' pass attempts and has held them to negative-3 rushing yards.

Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Tennessee gets inside Florida's 5-yard line (again) and Joshua Dobbs throws an interception to Quincy Wilson in the end zone. That makes two trips close to the red zone (seven inside the 10-yard line) with zero points. The Vols also have four drops in this game. According to ESPN Stats & Information, the Vols had the lowest drop pct in the SEC this season (2.7 percent). They had only dropped 2 passes in their first 3 games.

Opposing QBs vs Pitt, last 10 quarters: 61-of-92 (66%) for 1,035 yards (11.3 YPA) with 5 TDs and 1 INT. That's not real good.

Chantel Jennings ESPN Staff Writer 

Player news from Colorado-Oregon: Colorado QB Sefo Liufau -- who was injured versus Michigan last weekend -- is warming up in full uniform in Autzen. Looks like he'll be starting. Oregon running back Royce Freeman likely won't start today. He was injured last week versus Nebraska and spotted in a walking boot earlier this week. Back up Kani Benoit is slotted in his place. Oregon redshirt freshman left tackle Brady Aiello is picking up his second start of the season, stepping in for Tyrell Crosby, who suffered a career-ending injury versus Nebraska.

ESPN Stats and Information  

James Conner has a rushing touchdown in 12 consecutive games, the second-longest active streak in FBS (to Jeremy McNichols' 15 games) and the longest in school history.

David M. Hale ESPN Staff Writer 

Love defense? This probably isn't the game for you then. QBs Nate Peterman and Mitch Trubisky are combined 15-of-16 for 225 yards so far. Pitt leads North Carolina 19-7, but Heels have had the ball for just 1:48 of the first 23:32 of the game.
