Tigers, ’Noles net huge wins

(Continued)

NORMAN —

No. 19 MICHIGAN 42, MINNESOTA 13: Devin Gardner threw a 24-yard, go-ahead touchdown pass to Devin Funchess late in the first half and Michigan pulled away.

The Wolverines (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) relied on their running game to take pressure off the turnover-prone Gardner.

No. 20 TEXAS TECH 54, KANSAS 16: Freshman sensation Baker Mayfield passed for 368 yards but was helped off the field with an apparent leg injury in the third quarter of Texas Tech’s victory.

Mayfield, a true freshman walk-on who has started every game, was hurt at the end of the third quarter when tackled while passing. There was no penalty. He hobbled very slowly off the field with someone helping him under each arm.

NOTRE DAME 37, No. 22 ARIZONA STATE 34: Tommy Rees threw for 279 yards and three touchdowns, and Notre Dame made it 5 for 5 in the traveling Shamrock Series.

Kyle Brindza kicked three second-half field goals, the go-ahead kick from 25 yards with 3:03 remaining.

AUBURN 30, No. 24 MISSISSIPPI 22: Nick Marshall ran for 140 yards and two touchdowns, Robenson Therezie scored on a 78-yard interception return and Auburn beat a Top 25 team for the first time in two years.

Marshall’s second scoring run gave Auburn a 27-9 lead in the third quarter.
