BYU Wisconsin Football

BYU quarterback Tanner Mangum throws during the first half of an NCAA football game against Wisconsin Saturday in Madison, Wis. BYU won 24-21.

Squally Canada ran for 118 yards and two touchdowns and BYU handed mistake-prone Wisconsin its first nonconference home loss since 2003, giving the No. 6 Badgers fits with its motion offense in a 24-21 victory Saturday at Madison, Wis.

The Cougars (2-1) tossed in a trick play, too, when receiver Aleva Hifo found open tight end Moroni Laulu-Pututau for a 31-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

Wisconsin (2-1) had one last chance to avoid an upset with a drive that started with 3:55 left at the 8. But normally reliable senior kicker Rafael Gaglianone's 42-yard field goal attempt to tie with 41 seconds left went wide left, ending the Badgers' 41-game nonconference winning streak — the longest active in the nation. 

NO. 11 PENN STATE 63, KENT STATE 10: Trace McSorley accounted for five touchdowns and broke Penn State's record for most rushing scores by a quarterback as the No. 11 Nittany Lions routed Kent State at State College, Pa.

The Heisman Trophy hopeful completed 11 of 22 passes for 229 yards with an interception and ran for three touchdowns for the Nittany Lions (3-0), who led 28-10 at halftime. McSorley surpassed Daryll Clark's 22 rushing scores and leads the program with 24.

McSorley also became the second Penn State quarterback to rush for 1,000 career yards, joining Michael Robinson with an 18-yard carry in the first quarter.

NO. 19 MICHIGAN 45, SMU 20: Shea Patterson threw three touchdown passes to Donovan Peoples-Jones, helping No. 19 Michigan pull away to beat SMU at Ann Arbor, Mich.

The Wolverines (2-1) didn't score until Ben Mason converted a fourth down with a 1-yard TD run midway through the second quarter. The Mustangs (0-3) responded with Ben Hicks' 50-yard pass to James Proche to tie it.

Michigan took control over the last 2:34 of the first half. Patterson threw a tie-breaking, 35-yard TD pass to Peoples-Jones, and Josh Metellus returned an interception 73 yards for a score as time expired.

TROY 24, NEBRASKA 19: B.J. Smith scored on a 26-yard run midway through the fourth quarter and Will Sunderland made an interception in the final 3 minutes, giving Troy the cushion it needed to beat Nebraska at Lincoln, Neb., and denying new Cornhuskers coach Scott Frost his first win.

The Huskers (0-2) have lost their first two games for the first time since 1957 and have dropped six straight home games since beating Rutgers on Sept. 23, 2017.

The Trojans (2-1) of the Sun Belt Conference took down a power-five conference opponent for the second straight year. Last year they won at then-No. 25 LSU.

TEMPLE 35, MARYLAND 14: Temple stuffed Maryland's potent offense, Anthony Russo threw for 228 yards and the Owls pulled off an upset at College Park, Md., for their first victory of the season.

Ryquell Armstead rushed for 118 yards to help Temple (1-2) bounce back from losses at home to Villanova and Buffalo. The Owls took a 28-7 lead early in the third quarter and cruised to the finish as a 16-point underdog.

Maryland (2-1) was striving to stay unbeaten under interim coach Matt Canada, who also serves as offensive coordinator.

INDIANA 38, BALL STATE 10: Stevie Scott ran for 114 yards and two touchdowns while Peyton Ramsey and Ronnie Walker Jr. each added another score to help Indiana blow out Ball State at Bloomington, Ind.

The Hoosiers are 3-0 for only the second time in a decade and now own a six-game regular-season winning streak against nonconference foes. The Cardinals (1-2) have lost five straight to Big Ten opponents and fell to an in-state foe for the second consecutive week.

KANSAS 55, RUTGERS 14: Bryce Torneden and Mike Lee each returned interceptions for touchdowns and Kansas' defense wound up with three picks and recovered three fumbles en route to a win over Rutgers at Lawrence, Kan., the Jayhawks' first back-to-back wins over FBS opponents since 2009.

Turnovers plagued the Scarlet Knights from the start as Torneden jumped in front of an Artur Sitkowski pass on Rutgers' second drive and returned it 39 yards for the score. Torneden was there again the next time out, recovering a fumble by Jonathan Hilliman that set up a field goal.

Special teams was one of few bright spots for Rutgers, as Deonte Roberts blocked a Kansas field goal try in the first quarter and took it 64 yards for the touchdown. 

MINNESOTA 26, MIAMI (OHIO) 3: Zack Annexstad threw two short touchdown passes to Tyler Johnson, and freshman Bryce Williams had 176 yards of total offense as Minnesota beat Miami (Ohio) at Minneapolis.

Annexstad completed 12 of 20 throws for 142 yards in his third collegiate start and was resting on the sideline by the third quarter. Williams had 33 rushes for 141 yards as featured back in place of Rodney Smith, who suffered a season-ending knee injury last week against Fresno State.
