-UConn tailback Donald Brown rushed for 214 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown that gave the Huskies a 12-9 overtime victory over Temple.
-Illinois quarterback Juice Williams ran for 174 yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 24 Illinois to a 47-21 victory over Eastern Illinois. Williams broke the school quarterback rushing record of 145 yards, which he set in 2006. He also threw for 124 yards and a touchdown but was intercepted twice and fumbled a yard short of a touchdown.
-Clemson tailback C.J. Spiller carried only six times on Saturday. But he scored three touchdowns on runs of 1, 17 and 37 yards as the Tigers routed The Citadel 45-17.

LUCKY COUGS
No. 15 Brigham Young hopes to become the latest outsider to crash the Bowl Championship Series party. But the Cougars didn't look BCS-worthy in a 28-27 victory over Washington, extending the nation's longest win streak to 12 games.
The Cougars needed to block a 35-yard extra point with 2 seconds remaining to hold off the Huskies, who have lost 11 of their last 13 games. The ball was spotted at BYU's 18-yard line after Huskies quarterback Jake Locker drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for throwing the football into the air to celebrate the potential tying touchdown run.
It was a brutal ending for Locker, who accounted for 270 of Washington's 337 total yards.

RAMBLIN' WRECK
First-year Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson won his Atlantic Coast Conference debut, leading the Yellow Jackets to a 19-16 victory at Boston College, which won the ACC's Atlantic Division last season. Next up for Johnson and the Jackets: a trip to Virginia Tech, the defending Coastal Division champions.

NOT-SO-BIG TEN
Both Ohio State and Michigan struggled to put away Mid-American Conference opponents. Playing without injured tailback Beanie Wells, the third-ranked Buckeyes trailed Ohio 14-6 in the third quarter before rallying for a 26-14 victory in Columbus - a result that hardly inspires confidence as Ohio State prepares for next week's visit to No. 1 Southern California.
The Wolverines scored a late touchdown to put away Miami (Ohio) 16-6 in front of 106,724, the smallest crowd since Michigan Stadium was expanded in 1998. It was coach Rich Rodriguez's first victory for Michigan.

DEE-FENSE
Ninth-ranked Auburn (2-0) had not allowed a point for the first 102 minutes of the season before Southern Mississippi scored a touchdown late in the third quarter. The Tigers hung on for a 27-13 victory, limiting the Golden Eagles to 37 rushing yards and allowing only 3-of-15 third-down conversions.

BUZZER BEATERS
Sam Swank hit a 41-yard field goal with 3 seconds remaining to lift No. 20 Wake Forest to a 30-28 victory over Ole Miss in Winston-Salem. The Demon Deacons went 57 yards in 45 seconds after surrendering a go-ahead touchdown. ... Armando Cuko kicked a 42-yarder as time expired to lead Massachusetts to a 45-42 victory over Holy Cross, which called back-to-back timeouts to try to freeze the kicker.

QUOTABLE
``That was pathetic. It was a pathetic performance. OU should've won the game. I don't know how we came out with it.'' - Ohio State wide receiver Brian Hartline after the Buckeyes rallied for a 26-14 win over Ohio, a 33 1/2-point underdog.

``In the second half, when things started going bad, I think there's some guys (who) quit. ... I'm ashamed. I apologize to the United States Military, Corps of Cadets, anybody really who watched that game. That's not the way that these kids need to play this game.'' - New Army coach Stan Brock after a 28-10 loss to New Hampshire.
