NCAAF Scoreboard

Auto Update: On

Earlier this week, North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said he hoped his defense would use its performance in a win over Miami as a springboard for confidence and momentum. Through a little more than a quarter against Virginia, the D has allowed just two first downs and 63 total yards.

Alabama DE Jonathan Allen just went Superman to leap over the would be blocker and sack Trevor Knight on third down. The Tide d-line is loaded with pass-rushers.

How good has Alabama's new-look offense been this season? Well, Alabama entered the day having scored TDs on 18 of its 21 goal-to-go drives this season. So A&M stopping the Tide and forcing a FG on the opening drive was actually pretty impressive and important.

Syracuse has won back to back ACC games for the first time since 2013, as the Orange follow their upset of Virginia Tech by beating former Big East rival Boston College 28-20. Eric Dungey had a strong line -- 32-38 passing for 434 yards and 3 TDs, to go with 54 rushing yards -- but turned the ball over twice. Still, Amba Etta-Tawo caught 10 passes for 144 yards and a TD, giving him 6 100-yard receiving outings in 8 games this year. The Maryland graduate transfer is now 5th in school history for career 100-yard games. The Orange are 2-2 in league play heading into their bye. BC, meanwhile, remains winless in ACC play since 2014 and will head to NC State next week.

Takeaways have been at the core of West Virginia's 5-0 start, and the Mountaineers already have two today following cornerback Rasul Douglas' third interception of the season. WVU's defense has at least one takeaway in all six games and in 11 of its last 12 contests.

Armstrong Jr. gives Nebraska the lead

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.


Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

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

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

ESPN Stats and Information  

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

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

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.
