Alabama and Ohio State continued to rebound in impressive fashion after early season losses and the ACC balance of power has officially shifted?

In his last two outings, Young has passed for 719 yards with six touchdown passes and no interceptions.
and Bryce Young total five rushing TDs to help overcome a slow first half, defeating relentless Tennessee, 52-24.The Cincinnati offense woke up just long enough and scored just enough to fend off an upset-minded Navy, but the Bearcats went three-and-out four times and gained just 271 yards (5.3 per play) against a Midshipmen defense that had been allowing 370 yards per game and 6.1 per play.
The offense has now put up 35 or more points in the first half for four straight games, which is tied for the longest streak in a season over the last 15 years.
Stroud has started to hit his stride and finished the game with 266 yards and four touchdowns, and running back TreVeyon Henderson had two touchdowns of his own.The Wolverines avoided any chance of a loss looking ahead to its game against Michigan State and handled Northwestern in a 33-7 win.
Minus a few fumbles, it was a relatively uneventful game that saw Michigan finish with 294 rushing yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
The defense held Northwestern to 233 total yards of offense and had a fumble recovery and an interception, with a blocked punt on special teams, as well.
Mel Tucker's team will look to attack downfield against a Michigan defense that hasn't faced great passing offenses this season.

The Fighting Irish had steady production from top running back Kyren Williams (138 rush yards, two touchdowns) and a passing game that broadened a bit, as Jack Coan featured freshman wideout Lorenzo Styles Jr.
Sam Hartman was brilliant, with six total touchdowns and a career-high 458 passing yards, as Wake Forest remained the ACC's only unbeaten team.
The Deacons have scored 35 or more points in all seven games this season, but they also gave up 416 rushing yards to Army and allowed the Knights to convert 12 of 19 third or fourth downs.
Still, it was a defensive play by Wake Forest that turned the game around in the third quarter: Traveon Redd intercepted a fourth-down pass on a trick play and returned it 83 yards for a touchdown.
With games remaining against Mississippi State (road), Tennessee (home), Vanderbilt (road), New Mexico State (home) and Louisville (road), Kentucky has a good chance at finishing 11-1, which would put them right in the mix for a New Year's Six bowl game (or even the SEC East title, if Georgia falters twice).
The Wildcats defeated the (MSU) Bulldogs 24-2 last season, shutting out a Mike Leach-coached offense for the first time in his career.
This time, the stubborn Cowboys defense held Breece Hall to 70 yards on 21 carries, below his average of 125 per game.

The Aztecs came into the game with the nation's top-ranked rushing defense (61.2 yards per game) and limited the Falcons' dangerous rushing attack to 192 yards -- well below their season average (336.4 mpg).
The offense didn't get much going on the ground, as it finished with only 62 total yards rushing.
