Gurley shines in Georgia's big win over Clemson (Yahoo Sports)

Georgia's Todd Gurley is uncomfortable in front of the cameras. Well, the junior running back better get used to it if he keeps playing like he did in a 45-21 victory over Clemson. Stamping himself as an early contender in the Heisman Trophy race, Gurley scored four touchdowns, set a school record with 293 all-purpose yards, and prompted coach Mark Richt to declare ''he's the best player in America.'' No argument from the Tigers. ''Gurley is obviously as good as it gets,'' Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said.

On the Badgers' first play from scrimmage, Melvin Gordon sprinted 63 yards up the middle to set up another touchdown. Kenny Hilliard scored on a 28-yard touchdown run to cap a fourth-quarter rally for No. 13 LSU in a 28-24 win over No. 14 Wisconsin at NRG Stadium on Saturday night.

Everett Golson looked better after a year off than he ever did in helping Notre Dame get to the national championship two seasons ago. In his first game back after missing last season for academic impropriety, Golson threw touchdown passes of 75 and 53 yards and became just the third Notre Dame quarterback to run for three touchdowns in a game as the Irish beat Rice 48-17 on Saturday. ''Everett Golson was electric,'' coach Brian Kelly said. He knew when to throw it.'' Golson was 14-of-22 passing for 295 yards and ran for 41 yards on 12 carries.
