Here are the top plays from Saturday’s Week 3:

No. 12 BYU at No. 25 Oregon

bigger than football

Ahead of kickoff, BYU paid tribute to former Oregon tight end Spencer Webb, who passed away earlier this year.

leave it to me

Oregon’s attack began in a rushing wave to open the case. Bonix kept it up with a 2-yard skipper to close out his four-play, 64-yard drive of the Ducks opening his score.

let me see

BYU got on the board as QB Jalen Hall faked left, faked right, and found TD tight end Isaac Rex.

No. 22 Pennsylvania State University at Auburn

Lots of fireworks!

Penn State QB Shaun Clifford thinks a lot about running after getting this big blow from Auburn’s Owen Papaw.


Well, the nasty blow kept Clifford at bay.The senior QB responded in the best possible way.

6. Oklahoma 49, Nebraska 14

Let the game begin!

What better entry point to all college football than when the Cornhuskers take to the field at Memorial Stadium? One word… Electricity!

ring. ring. who is there?

This is Junior Trey Palmer from Nebraska. I have a reservation for SIX. The junior wide receiver ran a perfect route and his Cornhuskers QB Casey Thompson put Biscuit in the basket to give Nebraska his 7–0 lead.

Dillon Gabriel show off the wheel

Nebraska struck first, but it didn’t take long for the Sooners to quickly counterattack. Gabriel stepped into his pocket, stored it in himself, and carried it 61 yards home.

Pipe down!

Oklahoma wasted little time putting more points on the board after the first score. The Sooners used a fast-paced offense to run out his D in Nebraska and found the end his zone with quite a dime courtesy of Gabriel to Jalil his Farouk.


It’s not the traditional way to watch a team score a touchdown, but Oklahoma itself throws an extraordinary party on the streets.As Gabriel throws a screen pass to tight end Brayden Willis , Braden Willis scored by throwing a 24-yard perfect strike to a wide-open Marcus Majors.

double coverage?doesn’t matter

OU took a 49-7 lead three minutes into the third quarter. Theo Wease climbed through the trees to roll up his difficult 15-yard hamper and scored his second pass TD for Gabriel.

No. 17 Baylor 42, Texas 7

Right above the gut!

Baylor ran back Richard Reese, took the handoff and went straight up, leaving the 14-yard score untouched to give the Bears an early 7–0 lead.

Tightrope walking

Baylor doubled their lead early in the second quarter, with Craig Williams taking the handoff and turning on the Jets to get the score 30 yards. Williams made an impressive down keeping the inbounds as his run gave the Bears his 14-0 lead.

where’s the ball

Quarterback Blake Shapen extended the Bears’ lead after freezing the defense on an option play and sprinting 35 yards home. Baylor led 21-7 at the half.

through the maze

Baylor’s Gavin Holmes got into the action in the second half, grabbing the middle before finding his way through the Bobcats’ sea to find Paydart. The score gave the Bears a 28-7 advantage.

put the bow on it

Reese was the star of Saturday’s show, and he capped off a great day with two 6-man rampages. Reese finished the game with 156 yards on 19 carries (8.2 yards per carry) and 3 scores on the ground.

best of the rest

It was a beautiful scene at Notre Dame Stadium before the team’s match against Cal.

Former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Teo was very emotional as he was honored pre-game during his pre-game presentation to the color guards.

Te’o enjoyed an eight-year NFL career after stints at Notre Dame from 2009-2012.

Theo addressed the home crowd before kickoff. He received a standing ovation from Irish fans.

Hollywood Swingin’

Jackson State is ready to start the season, and Shane “Hollywood” Fuchs said “Keep the cameras on” against Grambling State in this acrobatic one-handed grab.
