UAlbany quarterback DJ Crook completed 19 of 32 passes for 261 yards and touchdowns of 34 yards to Harris in the second quarter and 29 yards to Zee Roberson in the third quarter.

Penn State W 37 - 21 vs SDSU 3-1 B1G 1-0

Bruised, Battered, and Victorious: Penn State 37, San Diego State 21 - Black Shoe Diaries
Penn State continued two trends today. For one thing, the offense continued to improve--considerably and conspicuously--protecting both its quarterback and the ball. But on a less auspicious note, the injury woes that have plagued James Franklin's team only worsened.

Florida Atlantic W 17 - 7 at Charlotte 1-3 CUSA 1-0

Florida Atlantic vs. Charlotte - Game Recap - September 26, 2015 - ESPN

Nevada W 24 - 21 at Buffalo 2-2 MWC 0-0

Nevada Football: Wolf Pack outlasts Buffalo Bulls - Mountain West Connection

Bowling Green W 35 - 21 at Purdue 2-2 MAC 0-0

FalconBlog--Triumphs and Trials in the BGSU Falcon Nation: Sweet Victory #2: The Recap
One thing is that we remember this as a great game because we won... but it was really a very entertaining football, if you like that sort of thing.  It was exciting, going for it on 4th down creates more dramatic plays and then you have the back and forth nature and the crazy finish.  Just a very entertaining game...no work of art, for sure, but very entertaining and a great day to be a Falcon.

CMU L 30 - 20 at Michigan State 1-3 MAC 0-0

Ohio L 27 - 24 at Minnesota 3-1 MAC 0-0

Minnesota Football: Gophers Complete Fourth Quarter Comeback to Down Ohio 24-27 - The Daily Gopher
The Gophers needed a dramatic fourth quarter drive in the final two minutes to regain the lead and hold off Ohio for a 24-27 win.  Another game that was not pretty and very stressful for Gopher fans but this one flipped the script.  Typically very strong play from the defense and special teams while the offense did barely enough to secure the win (or close loss to #2 TCU).  But today, this was not the case.

Miami L 56 - 14 at WKU 1-3 MAC 0-0

Miami Redhawks vs. Western Kentucky Hilltoppers football recap: Doughty goes wild and Miami falls, 56-14 - Hustle Belt
The Miami-Ohio Redhawks suffered a 56-14 blowout loss to the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers on Saturday afternoon (Sept. 26) in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The game was 28-0 after one quarter and was never close after that.

Kent L 36 - 29 vs Marshall 1-3 MAC 0-0

Marshall Thundering Herd vs. Kent State Golden Flashes Football Recap: Kent can't hold on, Marshall nabs 36-29 victory - Hustle Belt
The Kent State Golden Flashes (1-3, 0-0 MAC) had Minnesota against the ropes late, but couldn't close last week. This week, the Golden Flashes jumped out to an early lead, and just couldn't keep Tony Pittman from running over the Kent State defense, as the Marshall Thundering Herd escape with the 36-29 victory.

NIU L 17 - 14 at Boston College 2-2 MAC 0-0

Boston College 17 Northern Illinois 14: Cheers And Jeers - BC Interruption
As mentioned at length already, this game was a tale of two teams. On one side of the ball you had the defense, a group that is playing at an elite level and will keep BC in every game this season. But on the other you have the offense, which looked lost at worst, and predictable at best. Now mix all of that up with a special teams miscue and you have an unnecessarily tight football game. Let's take a look at what worked and what didn't in yesterday's win.

Akron W 35 - 14 at La. Laff 2-2 MAC 0-0

Akron Zips vs. Louisiana-Lafayette Rajun Cajuns football recap: Tommy Woodson leads Zips to road victory - Hustle Belt
There was a common theme to the Akron Zips' offensive struggles in the first two weeks of the season: quarterback play. With the installation of Tommy Woodson into the signal calling position, Akron is now on a two-game winning streak and riding high after yesterday's 35-14 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette at Cajun Field

UMass L 62 - 27 at Notre Dame 0-3 MAC 0-0

Steady as She Goes: Notre Dame 62, UMass 27 - One Foot Down
Some props to UMass for a well-played first half. It's easy to conclude that ND was "sleepwalking", as UMass coach Mark Whipple himself put it in his halftime interview with NBC, and they probably were, but UMass took advantage on a simple draw that went for a TD, and again on a gadget play that set up another score and made the Irish sweat early on, pulling within 21-20 at one point. Luckily for those of us on this board, ND snapped into life and controlled the rest of the game.
