LSU hangs on vs. S. Carolina

(Continued)

BATON ROUGE, La. —

No. 18 Louisville 45, Pittsburgh 35: Senorise Perry rushed for 101 yards and a career-high four touchdowns.

Teddy Bridgewater passed for 304 yards for the Cardinals (6-0, 1-0 Big East), including a 75-yard score to Devante Parker on the first play of the second half as Louisville continued its best start since 2006.

Parker’s score came in the middle of a 24-point burst by Louisville spanning the second and third quarters that turned a seven-point deficit into a 38-21 lead.

No. 20 Rutgers 23, Syracuse 15: Duron Harmon scooped up a blocked field goal attempt and ran 75 yard for a tie-breaking touchdown early in the third quarter and Rutgers rode its defense and special teams to 6-0.

Big East Conference defensive player of the year Khaseem Greene forced three fumbles and intercepted a pass as Rutgers (3-0) became bowl eligible for the seventh time in eight seasons.

No. 24 Boise St. 20, Fresno St. 10: D.J. Harper rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown and Joe Southwick threw for another score.

Harper was the leader of a Boise State (5-1, 2-0 Mountain West) rushing attack that chewed up 215 yards on the ground and propelled the Broncos to their fifth consecutive win and seventh straight over the Bulldogs.

No. 25 Michigan 45, Illinois 0: Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores, brushing off an undisclosed injury as well as the Illini.

The Wolverines (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) got a scare when Robinson left the game late in the first quarter. He missed just one-plus possessions, though, and returned to score on a 6-yard run to put Michigan up 17-0 late in the first half.
