How happy are these guys right now? Auburn dominated Arkansas, 56-3, winning its fourth straight game, and now the Tigers are 5-2 with a ton of momentum on their side.

Two teams that badly need a win, Michigan State and Maryland, are tied at 14 at halftime. The Spartans continue to have defensive issues, especially on third down, and are making too many mistakes. But they've done a much better job of running the ball than they have most of the season, pounding it 24 times for 159 yards and both TDs that half.

The "White Out" and has seen both Ohio State and Penn State kept out of the end zone in the first half. The Buckeyes lead 3-0, but haven't been sharp. There have already been seven punts in the game.
ESPN Stats and Information

Leonard Fournette looks good to go after watching warmups for tonight's matchup with Ole Miss (9:15 ET kickoff, ESPN). LSU's star running back hasn't played in nearly a month, but his injured ankle has healed to the point that he should get steady carries against the Rebels. It will be interesting to see how he and Derrius Guice share time tonight after Guice rushed for at least 155 yards in all three games where he started in Fournette's absence.
Browning's big game leads Huskies
Jake Browning throws his third touchdown pass of the game, this one a 41-yarder to Dante Pettis off play-action, to put No. 5 Washington up 38-10 on Oregon State midway through the third quarter.

Auburn's Truitt scores again
Stanton Truitt scores his third touchdown, two of them rushing, with a 49-yard run up the gut to push the Tigers' lead over Arkansas to 49-3 early in the fourth quarter.

Oklahoma tight end Mark Andrews has been taken to the locker room with an apparent shoulder injury. Would be a big loss if he cannot return. Sooners already without RB Samaje Perine (pulled muscle).
Punt mishap opens door for Buckeyes
Penn State's John Reid muffs a punt late in a scoreless first quarter with Ohio State's Terry McLaurin recovering at the Nittany Lions' 38-yard line.

Think Penn State missed LBs Brandon Bell and Jason Cabinda? This is the first time they've played together since Week 1, and they have a combined 11 tackles after the first quarter. That's nearly half of PSU's stops so far. Coach James Franklin implied they likely wouldn't play the entire game ... but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Hicks' third TD pass gives SMU big lead
Ben Hicks tosses a 28-yard touchdown pass to James Proche in the waning seconds of the first half to give SMU a 28-7 lead over No. 11 Houston at the break.
