TUSCALOOSA, Alabama (AP) -- Chad Kelly completed a deflected 66-yard touchdown pass and added two more long ones in the fourth quarter to help No. 15 Mississippi beat No. 2 Alabama 43-37 on Saturday.
The Rebels left the topsy-turvy game with their first victory in Bryant-Denny Stadium since 1988, and second straight in a one-sided series. The Crimson Tide had been 25-1 in Tuscaloosa against Ole Miss and had never lost two straight.
The Rebels made two final defensive stands, the first when Tony Bridges intercepted a deep ball from Jake Coker, who came off the bench to lead a comeback from a 30-10 deficit.
STANFORD 41, NO. 6 SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA 31
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kevin Hogan passed for 279 yards and two touchdowns, and Remound Wright rushed for three more scores as Stanford opened Pac-12 play with a victory over Southern California.
Austin Hooper and Devon Cajuste caught touchdown passes as Hogan finally beat USC for the first time in his career, snapping the Trojans' two-game winning streak in the lively in-state rivalry.
NO. 1 OHIO STATE 20, NORTHERN ILLINOIS 13
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Darron Lee returned an interception 41 yards for a touchdown as top-ranked Ohio State's defense bailed out its struggling, two-quarterback offense.
Cardale Jones started for the Buckeyes (3-0) and J.T. Barrett finished, but for the second straight week neither was particularly effective against an opponent Ohio State was expected to blow out.
NO. 3 TCU 56, SMU 37
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Trevone Boykin threw for 454 yards and five touchdowns for TCU, and added a highlight scoring run when he ducked out of a sack.
The Horned Frogs (3-0) won their 11th consecutive game, a winning streak second only to the 16 in a row by top-ranked defending national champion Ohio State.
NO 4 MICHIGAN STATE 35, AIR FORCE 21
EAST LANSING, Michigan (AP) -- Connor Cook threw three touchdown passes in the first half for Michigan State, including one that Aaron Burbridge hauled in with a spectacular catch in the end zone.
Cook threw for 247 yards and four touchdowns, and Burbridge caught eight passes for 156 yards and three TDs. The highlight was Burbridge's 28-yard scoring reception in the second quarter, when he leaped to make the catch and, as his body stretched parallel to the ground, touched his left foot down in bounds.
NO. 7 GEORGIA 52, SOUTH CAROLINA 20
ATHENS, Georgia (AP) -- Greyson Lambert answered his skeptics with a near-perfect performance, throwing for 330 yards, three touchdowns and setting a college football record by completing all but one of his 25 passes to lead the Bulldogs past South Carolina.
Lambert posted the highest percentage (96.0) in FBS history for a minimum of 20 completions, breaking the mark of 95.8 (23 of 24) shared by Tennessee's Tee Martin and West Virginia's Geno Smith. Lambert also completed his final 20 passes, breaking the previous school record of 19 straight completions by Mike Bobo in the 1998 Outback Bowl.
NO. 8 NOTRE DAME 30, NO. 14 GEORGIA TECH 22
SOUTH BEND, Indiana (AP) -- C.J. Prosise ran for 198 yards and three touchdowns, including one for 91 yards, as Notre Dame shut down Georgia Tech's high-powered offense.
Patrick Skov scored on a 24-yard run and a 15-yard catch in the final minute after the Yellow Jackets recovered an onside kick, but Notre Dame's Torii Hunter Jr. recovered a second onside kick with 21 seconds left to clinch the victory.
NO. 12 OREGON 61, GEORGIA STATE 28
EUGENE, Oregon (AP) -- Jeff Lockie threw for 228 yards and two touchdowns in his first start for Oregon.
Lockie replaced Vernon Adams, who was rested with a broken index finger on his throwing hand.
Royce Freeman ran for 101 yards and a touchdown to help the Ducks (2-1) rebound from a loss at Michigan State. Aidan Schneider added four field goals, all in the first half as Oregon built a 33-7 lead.
NO. 13 LSU 45, NO. 18 AUBURN 21
BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (AP) -- Leonard Fournette ran for a career-high 228 yards and three touchdowns, as LSU steamrolled Auburn 45-21.
Fournette gained 71 yards on LSU's first play from scrimmage and had 169 yards by halftime, then was rested for much of the second half -- perhaps the only thing preventing him from breaking Alley Broussard's single-game LSU rushing record of 250 yards, set against Mississippi in 2004.
NO. 16 OKLAHOMA 52, TULSA 38
NORMAN, Oklahoma (AP) -- Baker Mayfield threw for 487 yards and four touchdowns, and ran for another 85 yards and two scores to power Oklahoma.
Mayfield set a school record with 572 total yards. Samaje Perine ran for 152 yards, Sterling Shepard caught eight passes for 144 yards and Mark Andrews caught two TD passes for the Sooners (3-0).
NO. 17 TEXAS A&M 44, NEVADA 27
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Kyle Allen threw four touchdown passes and ran for a score to lead Texas A&M to its 19th straight nonconference victory, the longest active streak in the Football Bowl Subdivision.
The Aggies (3-0) were up by four early in the second quarter before scoring 17 straight points, with two touchdown catches by Josh Reynolds, to make it 31-10 early in the third. The second one came soon after an interception by Donovan Wilson on the first play of the second half.
NO. 22 MISSOURI 9, UCONN 6
COLUMBIA, Missouri (AP) -- Anthony Sherrils' last-minute interception allowed Missouri to hold on against Connecticut in a game that featured four turnovers, two missed field goals and a blocked extra point.
With just a under a minute left, Sherrils picked off a pass by Huskies backup quarterback Tim Boyle on a fourth-down, fake field goal attempt. Sherrils also forced and recovered a fumble with 4:26 left in the first half for Missouri (3-0). UConn is 2-1.
NO. 23 NORTHWESTERN 19, DUKE 10
DURHAM, North Carolina (AP) -- Warren Long ran 55 yards for a touchdown and recovered a fumbled punt return late to help Northwestern beat Duke.
Solomon Vault returned the opening kickoff of the second half 98 yards for the touchdown that put the Wildcats (3-0) ahead to stay. Northwestern forced three turnovers and opened a season with three victories for the first time since 2013 -- also the last time the Wildcats were ranked.
NO. 24 WISCONSIN 28, TROY 3
MADISON, Wisconsin (AP) -- Two-way player Tanner McEvoy had one of Wisconsin's three touchdown runs in a game where two Badgers defenders were ejected for targeting and play was delayed briefly in the fourth quarter because of an errant fire alarm.
NO. 25 OKLAHOMA STATE 69, UTSA 14
STILLWATER, Oklahoma (AP) -- Devante Averette scored on a 6-yard fumble return only 45 seconds in, as Oklahoma State forced seven turnovers -- all of them leading to points.
