No. 7 SOUTH CAROLINA 31, MISSOURI 10

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) _ Connor Shaw completed 20 straight passes and threw for two touchdowns and Marcus Lattimore ran for two scores as South Carolina manhandled Missouri in the Tigers’ first Southeastern Conference road game.

Shaw missed his first pass to Lattimore on the game’s first series, then hit his final 20 for the Gamecocks (2-0 SEC).

Missouri (2-2, 0-2) struggled against a Gamecocks defense that has given up three touchdowns all year. The Tigers had a season-low 254 yards.

Lattimore rushed for 85 yards. His touchdowns gave him South Carolina’s career mark with 33 rushing scores, a record Lattimore shared with Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers and Harold Green.

No. 8 WEST VIRGINIA 31, MARYLAND 21

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) _ Doug Rigg returned a fumble 51 yards for West Virginia and Tavon Austin had another remarkable game against his home-state Terrapins.

The Baltimore native caught 13 passes for 179 yards and set a school record for career receptions.

Still, West Virginia looked flat at times on offense, after averaging 56 points and 612 yards in its first two games. Geno Smith had as many incompletions in the first half (nine) as he did in the first two games combined before getting on track. He finished with 338 passing yards.

For Maryland (2-2), Hills threw three touchdowns, two to freshman Stefon Diggs.

NO. 11 NOTRE DAME 13, NO. 18 MICHIGAN 6

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) _ Manti Te’o had two interceptions as No. 11 Notre Dame picked off five Michigan passes and backup quarterback Tommy Rees sparked the Fighting Irish offense in a 13-6 win over the 18th-ranked Wolverines Saturday night.

Denard Robinson, who amassed 948 yards of total offense in victories over the Irish past two years, wasn’t as effective this time as the Irish repeatedly forced him into mistakes. He threw four interceptions in the first half, then lost a fumble at the Notre Dame 8-yard line on the first drive of the second half.
