Week 3 of the college football season featured some top dogs cruising to easy victories. 

No. 1 Georgia routed South Carolina in its SEC opener. No. 4 Michigan shut out UConn before the Wolverines begin Big Ten play. No. 6 Oklahoma made sure rival Nebraska wouldn’t pull off a shocker in its first game since firing Scott Frost. 

Here are some fascinating stats from each of Saturday’s top games. 

No. 1 Georgia 48, South Carolina 7

— Georgia has allowed seven or fewer points in each of its first three games of the season for the first time since 1954.

No. 4 Michigan 59, UConn 0

Blake Corum rushed for five touchdowns against UConn, joining Ron Johnson and Hassan Haskins as the only Michigan running backs to have five touchdowns in a game.

No. 6 Oklahoma 49, Nebraska 14

— Oklahoma’s 49 points scored are the most ever for an OU team in Lincoln.

Oklahoma vs. Nebraska Highlights

After giving up the opening touchdown, Oklahoma cruised to victory over arch rival Nebraska on Saturday.

Southern Illinois 31, Northwestern 24

— It’s Southern Illinois’ first win against a Big Ten opponent since 2006 when it beat Indiana 35-28. Nick Hill was the quarterback for the Salukis in that win and is now their head coach.

No. 22 Penn State 41, Auburn 12

Penn State beat Auburn by 29 points on Saturday, the biggest margin of defeat for Auburn in a non-conference home game since October 1982 when it lost to Nebraska, 41-7.

— It was Auburn’s first non-conference loss of 25-plus points since 1996 when it, coincidentally, lost to Penn State, 43-14, in the Outback Bowl.

No. 25 Oregon 41, No. 12 BYU 20

Oregon’s first home win over an AP Top-15 team since beating No. 7 Washington, 30-27, in 2018.

Minnesota 49, Colorado 7

— This is the best start to a season for Minnesota (3-0) since at least 2000, with a +132 point differential; its second-best point differential through three games was +102 in both 2003 and 2005. It is also the third-best start (with point differential) in the Big Ten since 2000 (Michigan +149 this year, Ohio State +133 in 2016).
