QB Tommy Armstrong Jr. runs for a 22-yard TD to give No. 8 Nebraska a 7-0 early lead over Purdue on ESPN2.

UCLA backup QB Mike Fafaul took all the snaps with the offense in pregame warm-ups. Josh Rosen did not take any. The Bruins do not plan to make an official announcement about who will start at quarterback, but, at this point, it would be a shock if it is not Fafaul.

TCU fumbles opening kickoff

Nana Kyeremeh recovers it to give West Virginia a short field. The No. 12 Mountaineers took advantage and took a 7-0 lead.

Alabama comes up with a field goal to take the early 3-0 lead over Texas A&M. Credit the Aggie defense for making the stand after a rocky start to that drive.

Kansas State's win was its fifth in a row at home against Texas. That is tied for the all-time longest home winning streak for any team against Texas (Texas A&M from 1985 to 1993).

Watch: TCU at No. 12 West Virginia

West Virginia seeks its first 6-0 start since 2006 against a dangerous TCU squad that is ranked 31st, according to ESPN's FPI. TCU has scored at least 20 points in 36 straight games, which is second to only Oregon (38) in the FBS. Live on ABC/ESPN2/WatchESPN

Colorado's offense has woken up. It took the Buffs only 9 plays to march 73 yards for the go-ahead score. Colorado is taking advantage of Stanford's biggest defensive weakness -- linebackers -- on rushes to the edge.

Watch: Purdue at No. 8 Nebraska

Nebraska is a big favorite against struggling Purdue, which fired head coach Darrell Hazzell this week. The Cornhuskers are 6-0 for the first time since the 2001 season, when they made the BCS title game. Live on ABC/ESPN2/WatchESPN

Oklahoma State pulled away in the second half for a solid 44-20 win over Kansas. Some big-time takeaways from the Pokes' defense helped them finish that road win with a 20-0 scoring run. Big test vs. West Virginia up next.

Wisconsin has now won four in a row at Iowa for the first time since a run from 1907 to 1928.

South Carolina true freshman QB Jake Bentley made a triumphant debut, leading the Gamecocks to a 34-28 win over UMass with a strong performance: 17-for-26 passing, 201 yards, 2 TD. Even considering the opponent, impressive for a young man who should be a senior in high school right now (he graduated early and enrolled at South Carolina).

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas coach Charlie Strong: "We knew what type of game it was going to be." It's maybe the most frustrating aspect of today for the Longhorns after this 24-21 loss to Kansas State. The Wildcats did nothing to Texas that it didn't expect.

Northwestern DB goes OBJ on this INT

Northwestern safety Kyle Queiro makes a ridiculous one-handed interception in the fourth quarter against Indiana. The Wildcats won 24-14.


Edward Aschoff ESPN Staff Writer 

Alabama has won three straight and five the last six games against Texas A&M (3-1 since A&M joined SEC). The only loss over that span came in 2012 when Johnny Manziel and company shocked the Tide in Tuscaloosa, 29-24. Both teams are undefeated but Kevin Sumlin has never run the table as a head coach and Nick Saban has only done so once in 2009. The last SEC team to finish a season perfect was Auburn in 2010 when it went 14-0 and won the BCS National Championship.

We're approaching kickoff in Tuscaloosa where No. 1 Alabama and No. 6 Texas A&M pits two of only three FBS QBs with at least eight touchdowns rushing and passing (Jalen Hurts and Trevor Knight).

ESPN Stats and Information  

Emmit Carpenter gave Minnesota its first game-winning field goal in the final 10 seconds of the fourth quarter since 2005 at Michigan (a 30-yd field goal by Jason Giannini to win 23-20).

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

It was blustery earlier but the winds are much calmer (see flags atop goalposts) as we approach kickoff here in Morgantown. Good news for quarterbacks Skyler Howard and Kenny Hill.

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

The continued emergence of freshman RB Justice Hill makes Oklahoma State's offense one of the most dangerous in the Big 12. Hill has a career-high 162 rushing yards on 7.4 per carry against Kansas today.

Austin Ward ESPN Staff Writer 

Minnesota probably won't feel great about needing a last-second field goal to beat struggling Rutgers at home. But that win could wind up being crucial for Tracy Claeys if he's being evaluated in his first year as the full-time coach by his ability to get the Gophers into a bowl game. Minnesota is now 5-2, and while it will obviously need to play better, it is also still alive in the Big Ten West Division.

It's quite a weekend for the state of Alabama. The Crimson Tide and the Aggies are about to kick off in Tuscaloosa. Auburn is hosting Arkansas later today. And Sunday, Talladega Superspeedway takes center stage with the Hellmann's 500. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines.
