Mariota had another big game in the No. 2 Ducks' 38-31 victory over Washington State. He was 21-of-25 passing for 329 yards and five touchdowns. He also had 58 rushing yards, including a 41-yard scamper.
Georgia didn't need Gurley in a 66-0 romp over Troy, but the junior rushed for 73 yards on six carries anyway. A 48-yard burst in the first quarter bumped Gurley into fourth place on the Bulldogs' all-time rushing list.
Winston was suspended for the No. 1 Seminoles' matchup versus No. 22 Clemson -- Florida State escaped with a win in overtime, 23-17 -- after he shouted a profane and sexually explicit phrase in the student union on campus during the week.
Hill played only the first half in the No. 6 Aggies' blowout 58-6 win over SMU. Hill was 16-of-22 passing for 265 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
Golson and the No. 9 Fighting Irish are off in Week 4. They next face Syracuse on Sept. 27. For the season, Golson is 62-of-96 passing for seven touchdowns and zero interceptions.
