Jordan Johnson broke Buffalo’s school record for rushing yards. The senior back totaled 282 yards in the Bulls’ 41-20 upset of Akron. The Zips were 19.5 point road favorites.

South Carolina (+613) vs. Tennessee

In was supposed to be an easy win for Tennessee but the Gamecocks held the Vols to under 300 yards of offense for just the second time this season and forced three turnovers. The loss is a gut punch for Tennessee, which is now on a three game losing streak after being ranked as a top ten team.

Ohio (+549) at Toledo

Dorian Brown rushed for a career high 212 yards and Ohio beat Toledo 31-26. It was the first road win for the Bobcats against the Rockets since 1967. Ohio is now bowl eligible for the eighth straight season.

Wyoming (+481) vs. Boise State

Chase Appleby sacked Brett Rypien forcing a fumble that was knocked out of the back of the end zone for a safety. The play gave Wyoming its first win over Boise State in 11 games and the program’s first win over a top 25 team since 2002.

Oregon Ducks

Justin Herbert had himself a day. The freshman quarterback threw for 489 yards and four touchdowns snapping a five game losing streak for Oregon. More importantly, the win over Arizona State was the Ducks first cover of the season. Before this game, Oregon was the only team in the country that hadn’t covered the spread in at least one game.
