Maryland Stuns No. 10 Rutgers, 34-24 - Backup quarterback Chris Turner (who looks to be all of 14) led Maryland to 20 second-half points, Keon Lattimore rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown and the Terps ruined No. 10 Rutgers' second stay in the top 10 with a 34-24 victory Saturday. Huge win for the Terps.

Georgia Tech Topples No. 13 Clemson - Georgia Tech stifled the dynamic running duo of James "Thunder" Davis and C.J. "Lightning" Spiller and took advantage of a stunningly poor performance by Dean Buchholz and the rest of Clemson's kicking game, upsetting the 13th-ranked Tigers 13-3 Saturday. The Yellow Jackets (3-2, 1-2 ACC) snapped a two-game losing streak and avoided their first 0-3 start in league play since 1994. The Tigers (4-1, 2-1) missed four field goals, had a punt blocked to set up the only touchdown and fumbled on a kickoff return, setting up a field goal.

No. 17 Virginia Tech Tops North Carolina 17-10 - Good thing for Virginia Tech it can always count on its defense. Xavier Adibi set up one short touchdown drive with an interception and long return, Virginia Tech stopped another drive by forcing a fumble deep in its own territory.

Florida State Defeats No. 22 Alabama 21-14 - Xavier Lee came off the bench to throw a pair of touchdown passes to De'Cody Fagg, and Antone Smith scored on a 5-yard run as Florida State defeated No. 22 Alabama 21-14. Florida State (3-1) gave Bobby Bowden, who grew up in Birmingham, Ala., and always figured he was destined to follow Bear Bryant in Tuscaloosa, his 369th coaching win in his first game against Alabama.

Miami Holds Off Duke, 24-14 - Kyle Wright returned from an injury to throw a game-sealing touchdown pass to DajLeon Farr with 2:15 left, and Miami escaped an upset bid by Duke for the second straight year by beating the Blue Devils 24-14 on Saturday.
Wright was 19-of-23 for 230 yards and two touchdowns for the Hurricanes (4-1, 1-0), who won their Atlantic Coast Conference opener for the first time in three years.

Virginia Rolls Past Pittsburgh 44-14 - Jameel Sewell threw three first-quarter touchdown passes and Cedric Peerman ran for two scores as Virginia extended its winning streak to four games with a 44-14 victory over Pitt on Saturday night. Sewell was 7-of-7 as Virginia (4-1) built a 27-0 first-quarter lead. Um, Hokies, don’t look now, but Virginia is looking pretty good…

No. 12 Boston College Remains Undefeated with a 24-14 Win Over UMass - Matt Ryan led Boston College on a 96-yard drive to give the Eagles a 17-point lead over Massachusetts. Then after UMass surprisingly cut the lead to a field goal, Ryan got BC moving again.

"We put together some nice drives when we needed to," Ryan said Saturday after throwing for 204 yards and a touchdown. "I think that's the sign of a championship team: when you get scored on, you answer."

Louisville 29, N.C. State 10 - Louisville's maligned defense forced a season-high five turnovers and the Cardinals overcame Brian Brohm's least productive performance of the season in a 29-10 victory over North Carolina State on Saturday night.
