Burkhead returns, Nebraska flattens Idaho State

Rex Burkhead ran for 119 yards and two touchdowns and No. 25 Nebraska made quick work of Idaho State in a 73-7 victory Saturday.

Penn State evens record with 24-13 win

Matt McGloin threw for a career-high 318 yards and ran for two short scores, and linebacker Michael Mauti led another strong defensive effort to lead Penn State to a 24-13 win Saturday over Temple.

Bell, Spartans run past upset-minded Eastern Michigan

Le’Veon Bell rushed for a career-high 253 yards and a touchdown to help stagnant Michigan State avoid a major upset with a 23-7 win over Eastern Michigan on Saturday. Dan Conroy kicked three field goals for the No. 21 Spartans (3-1), who failed to score a TD for more than seven quarters until Andrew Maxwell hit tight end Dion Sims on a 10-yard pass with 7:19 left. Michigan State struggled mightily through most of its final tuneup for next week’s Big Ten opener against unbeaten Ohio State. But Maxwell finally found Sims three times for 73 yards in the fourth
