Article excerpt

Everett Golson threw three touchdown passes and No. 16 Notre Dame said so long to visiting Michigan on Saturday night with a 31-0 victory, the Fighting Irish's most dominant performance in the historic rivalry that's now about to take a hiatus. Game No. 42 between in a rivalry that has been off-and-on for more than 100 years is the last scheduled. Notre Dame broke off the series a couple years ago to make room on its schedule to accommodate its new arrangement with the Atlantic Coast Conference. Michigan was shut out for the first time since 1984, snapping an NCAA record streak.

Virginia Tech 35, No. 8 Ohio State 21 * Michael Brewer passed for two touchdowns and the Hokies' defense stood tough at the end as they pulled an upset on the road. Keyshoen Jarrett had two interceptions and Donovan Riley returned another 63 yards for a TD in the final minute. Brewer led the Hokies (2-0) to a 21-7 lead at the half.

Nebraska is 2-0. The Cowboys were playing their season opener.

No. 1 Florida State 37, Citadel 12 * Jameis Winston threw for 256 yards and two touchdowns as the Seminoles (2-0) rolled at home to their 18th consecutive win. The Bulldogs (0-2) had 322 yards.
