How's Mark Ingram's knee? Just fine. The 2009 Heisman Trophy winner ran nine times for 151 yards and two touchdowns in his first game back from arthroscopic knee surgery. The Tide are just fine too, as they posted their highest points total in 19 years against the overmatched Blue Devils.

LaMichael James (center) rushed for 226 yards and two touchdowns on just 14 carries as the Ducks did all their scoring in the first three quarters. Darron Thomas completed only nine (of 18) passes, but four of them went for touchdowns for Oregon, which travels to Arizona State next weekend.

Foswhitt Whittaker got Texas off to a good start, scoring in the first quarter, and the defense made life tough on Taylor Potts all night, limiting him to 159 passing yards. Texas put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter after draining more than nine minutes off the clock. The 22-play drive included a risky and successful fake punt on fourth-and-1 on its own 29.

Two big plays helped the Wildcats get some revenge for last season's loss in Iowa City -- an 85-yard interception return for a touchdown by Trevin Wade and this 100-yard kickoff return by Travis Cobb in the second quarter that put Arizona up 21-7 just seconds after the Hawkeyes had cut the margin to seven.

Injuries on both sides of the ball prevented Wisconsin from ever gaining a comfortable lead. The Sun Devils cut Wisconsin's lead to 20-19 with 4:09 remaining, but Jay Valai blocked the extra point attempt, and the Badgers bled the clock to seal the win. Wisconsin's John Clay rebounded from a slow start to rush for 123 yards and the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter.

It looked like it was going to be the same old story after Arkansas blew a two-touchdown lead, allowing Georgia to tie the game at 24 apiece in the final minutes. But Ryan Mallett connected with Greg Childs (pictured) for a 40-yard bomb with 14 seconds remaining, and the Razorbacks registered an important SEC road win.

Tori Gurley (left) hauled in this 16-yard scoring pass in the first quarter as the Gamecocks opened 3-0 for the first time in three years. FCS Furman has a history of success against the big boys. The Paladins beat the Gamecocks 28-23 the last time the schools met - in 1982 - and lived up to that reputation at Williams-Brice Stadium. Furman's Adam Mims finished with 10 catches for 202 yards.

Wes Byrum kicked a 39-yard field goal in overtime and Clemson's Chandler Catanzaro (No. 39) missed a do-over kick to tie as Auburn rallied from 1 17-0 deficit. The game appeared headed to another OT when Catanzaro made a 27-yarder. After a 5-yard illegal procedure penalty on the kick, the redshirt freshman's second attempt hooked wide left, touching off a big celebration.

USC was trailing 14-13 in the third quarter when receiver Robert Woods came through with a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. The Trojans scored 19 unanswered points before Minnesota next found the end zone, but this was an uneven performance against a Golden Gophers squad that lost to South Dakota last week.

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck passed for three touchdowns and ran for this 52-yard TD -- in the first 30 minutes -- as the Cardinal totaled 341 yards of offense while rolling to a 41-10 halftime lead over the visiting Demon Deacons.

23 of 23AP
Jacquizz Rodgers (No. 1) ran for 132 yards and two touchdowns and James Dockery sealed the game with a late interception to lift Oregon State to a nonconference win. Ryan Katz threw for 142 yards and the Beavers re-established Rodgers as the focal point of the offense, but the Cardinals gave Oregon State a major scare and may have caught the Beavers (1-1) looking ahead to a matchup with No. 3 Boise State next week.
