Final Score: (11) Michigan State 73, Eastern Michigan 14
East Lansing, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Michigan State had a week to think about its loss at Oregon, and Eastern Michigan paid the price on Saturday. Connor Cook threw a pair of touchdown passes and ran for a score in a dominant first half, as the 11th-ranked Spartans rolled to a 73-14 victory over the Eagles. Michigan State let a nine-point lead slip away two weeks ago at Oregon and dropped a 46-27 decision when the Ducks scored 28 unanswered points. On Saturday, the Spartans wiped the memory away with a nearly flawless opening 30 minutes. Eastern Michigan failed to pick up a first down in the first half and managed only one yard offensively while holding the ball for just 8 1/2 minutes. The Spartans (2-1), conversely, had 320 yards of offense and scored 49 points. The Eagles (1-3), after a victory over Morgan State to open the season, have been outscored 155-17 in dropping their last three games. They'll open Mid-American Conference play next week at Akron.
Final Score: (13) Georgia 66, Troy 0
Athens, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Sony Michel ran for 155 yards with three touchdowns and Hutson Mason threw for a pair of scores, as 13th-ranked Georgia bounced back from last week's tough loss at South Carolina and cruised to a 66-0 victory over Troy. Michel, a true freshman, averaged 15.5 yards on just 10 carries. He took over at tailback after Todd Gurley played the first two series. Gurley ran for 73 yards on six attempts, part of Georgia's 367-yard effort on the ground. The Bulldogs (2-1), after the 38-35 loss last week in Columbia, outgained the Trojans 547-216 overall. Mason finished 8-of-11 for 97 yards through the air, while Isaiah McKenzie returned a punt for a touchdown in the lopsided victory. It marked the most points for Georgia since a 70-6 romp over Northeast Louisiana in 1994 and the margin of victory was the largest since a 76-0 win over The Citadel in 1958. Dontreal Pruitt, making his first start at quarterback in place of Brandon Silvers, threw for 158 yards with an interception for Troy (0-4).
Final Score: (19) Wisconsin 68, Bowling Green 17
Madison, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Melvin Gordon led Wisconsin's punishing rushing attack with five touchdowns as the 19th-ranked Badgers broke multiple school records in a 68-17 rout of Bowling Green on Saturday. Gordon, a preseason Heisman Trophy candidate, carried the ball 13 times for 253 yards and tied a school record with his five rushing touchdowns. Quarterback Tanner McEvoy rushed for 158 yards and one score on 11 carries for the Badgers (2-1), who set a single-game school record with 644 rushing yards. Corey Clement carried the ball 16 times for 111 yards and two touchdowns. The team rushing total was the most in the Big Ten's modern era, dating back to 1946. McEvoy completed 9-of-16 passes for 112 yards, one touchdown and an interception for Wisconsin, which also broke the school single-game mark for total offense with 756 yards. James Knapke connected on 13-of-28 passes for 163 yards and an interception for the Falcons (2-2), who had a two-game winning streak snapped.
