Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

Massachusetts 3 Buffalo 32- Complete domination by the Bulls defense Saturday as they outscored the Minutemen offense 9-3 in what was a cold and rainy UB Stadium. Branden Oliver had a huge game, running for 216 yards and a touchdown as he passed James Starks to become the Bulls all-time leading rusher.

Ohio 56 Eastern Michigan 28- Playing under less than ideal circumstances, the Eagles gave Ohio all they could handle for the majority of three quarters before Tyler Tettleton and the Bobcats took off. Tettleton threw for 375 yards and four touchdowns as Ohio improves to 5-2 (2-1)

Navy 44 Toledo 45 (2OT)- A Bernard Reedy 20-yard reception in double overtime gave Toledo a one-point victory as Jeremiah Detmer made the game-winning extra point. The game was back and forth throughout but Navy’s failed PAT in the second overtime proved costly. David Fluellen had 153 yards rushing before leaving with an injury.

Akron 24 Miami 17- The streak is over! The Zips win over the Redhawks signifies their first FBS win since 2010. Jawon Chisholm had three touchdowns on the ground as Akron improves to 2-6 (1-3)

Ball State 38 Western Michigan 17- The Broncos are very bad and Ball State is pretty good. You put those two facts together and you get a 21-point Cardinal victory as Ball State improves to 7-1 (4-0). Keith Wenning threw for 324 yards and three touchdowns in the win.

Kent State 21 South Alabama 38- Kent State can't get anything going right now. Even with Archer putting up 199 total yards and two touchdowns, the Golden Flashes still couldn't win, watching their defense get carved up for 481 yards as they fall to 2-6 (1-3).

23 Northern Illinois 38 Central Michigan 17- Jordan Lynch went off! His 316 rushing yards as a quarterback set an NCAA record, as Central Michigan had no solutions to stop him. After a close first half, Northern Illinois ran away in a dominant second half effort.
