Prescott threw two touchdowns and added three rushing scores, churning for 76-yards on the ground. Mississippi State led the SEC’s top offense 28-10 at halftime and outgained the Aggies 559-526 in total offense.

When his number was called, Northwestern’s reserve defensive back Godwin Igwebuike stepped up and picked off three passes in the Wildcats' 20-14 upset of Wisconsin on Saturday. Northwestern’s defense held Heisman contender Melvin Gordon to one touchdown and forced four interceptions on the day. The Wildcats earned their third consecutive win after opening the season 0-2.
The last-minute 29-yard field goal from Utah’s Andy Phillips was enough to put away No. 8 UCLA in Saturday’s hard-fought 30-28 victory. Phillips’ game-winning kick came with 34 seconds left in the game and just before a failed UCLA attempt. He also accounted for a 48-yard boot -- his second-longest of the season -- in the second quarter, putting the Utes up 17-7. The win broke a two-game losing streak against the Bruins.
