What is there to say about this game so far? It's been a hot mess. Or, as others would like to say: "funbad." There have been 551 total yards of offense, 2 special teams scores, Syracuse stopping a fourth-and-goal from the 1 and then converting one themselves, four total penalties, one targeting ejection, one called-back TD and, surely, plenty more to come. It's Notre Dame 30, Cuse 20 ... not even three minutes into the second quarter.

Notre Dame safety ejected for targeting

After Notre Dame's Devin Studstill launched into Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey and was called for a personal foul, the replay booth initiated a targeting call. It's the first time that's happened this season.


Syracuse punches it in on fourth down

Syracuse QB Eric Dungey keeps it for a 1-yard TD run on fourth and goal. Notre Dame leads 23-20 after a wild first quarter on ESPN.


Iowa State holds early lead over Baylor

Iowa State WR DeShaunte Jones schools Baylor safety Orion Stewart on his way to a 43-yard TD. The Cyclones lead the No. 13 Bears 14-7 late in the first quarter.

Arkansas' offensive line is clearly not as effective as it was in recent years. Moments ago vs. Alcorn State, the Razorbacks ran behind a jumbo package on 3rd-and-2 and only got a yard, then elected to go for it on 4th-and-1 and still could not get the yard and turned it over on downs. The Hogs had issues on short yardage near the goal line against Texas A&M, which has one of the best defensive fronts in the country, but not being able to get two yards in two plays against an FCS team is a telling sign.

After being transported to a local hospital following a first-quarter hit to the head, Rutgers LB Greg Jones has been communicating and has movement in his extremities, according to a school spokesman. Jones had been taken off the field on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance, but the spokesman called that a precautionary measure.

Northwestern extends lead at Iowa

Northwestern QB Clayton Thorson throws an 11-yard strike to Austin Carr for a TD. The Wildcats lead 17-7 at Iowa on ESPNU.

Whoa. OK St's Vincent Taylor blocked a Texas extra point ... then pitched it back to Tre Flowers for 2 pts on ABC:

Penn State police received notice of a potential threat against Beaver Stadium this morning but, after several "exhaustive" searches, police found no evidence of a risk. "Out of an abundance of caution we are notifying fans and the public of the threat that was received, so that they can make their own choices about personal safety and their attendance at today's game," said David Gray, senior vice president for Finance and Business. "Our first obligation is to the safety of the public and, while police and safety officials have given an all-clear for today's game, we wanted to ensure that visitors were aware of this decision."

Cowboys earn 2 points with heady play

Oklahoma State blocked a Texas extra-point attempt and on the return, a Cowboys player, thinking he wouldn't make it to the end zone, pitched back to a teammate, who took it the rest of the way.

Miami went into its game against Georgia Tech allowing just 65 rush yards per game. But in the first quarter alone, the Jackets had 65 yards rushing. It is a much different story for a defense when it comes to defending the triple-option coach Paul Johnson favors.

A game that's suddenly very interesting: Iowa State is up 14-0 at home against No. 13 Baylor late in the first quarter. Cyclones QB Joel Lanning starting a perfect 7-7 for 134 yards and a TD.

There was a fourth-and-1 stop by Syracuse, which was just the latest in what has been the theater of the absurd at MetLife Stadium. ND has blocked and returned an extra point for 2, scored on the first play from scrimmage and has a kickoff return TD. The teams have combined for 405 yards of offense, and it's still the first quarter, with the Irish leading 23-13.

Buechele sets up Texas touchdown

Texas QB Shane Buechele connects with Dorian Leonard for a 49-yard gain to the 2-yard line, which set up a TD. Oklahoma State leads the 22nd-ranked team in the nation 14-7 on ABC.


No. 20 Arkansas cruising early

Arkansas RB Devwah Whaley goes right up the middle for a 75-yard TD run. The Razorbacks lead Alcorn State 17-0.


Oklahoma State extends lead on 54-yard TD

Mason Rudolph finds James Washington for a 54-yard touchdown to put Oklahoma State up 14-0 over No. 22 Texas in the first quarter.
