Score update: Oregon fighting, Clemson clemsoning?

As they approach halftime at Clemson, Boston College holds a 7-0 lead on the No. 3-ranked Tigers. A Myles Wilson 38-yard touchdown run is the only score so far. Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd has been accurate, going 16/21 for 174 yards so far, but the Tigers have managed just 58 rushing yards so far and lost two fumbles. Chase Rettig is 9/13 passing for the Eagles.

VIEW THE FULL COLLEGE SCOREBOARD HERE

At Husky Stadium, No. 2 Oregon and No. 16 Washington are locked in a slugfest, with the Ducks up 14-7 early in the second quarter. Oregon got into the end zone on a fourth-down plunge, capping a 10-play drive that featured three goal line replays. Washington struck back immediately with a nine-play, 76-yard drive that ended in a Keith Price touchdown pass to Austin Sefarian-Jenkins. Oregon converted a Washington fumble into a touchdown with 8:41 to play in the second quarter.

No. 10 LSU has opened a 14-3 lead on Florida late in the second quarter. The Bayou Bengals managed two second-quarter scoring drives, and have doubled Florida's offensive output so far. Gators quarterback Tyler Murphy has struggled, going just 4/9 for 42 yards so far.

After a sluggish start, No. 15 Baylor leads Kansas State 21-10 at the half. Bryce Petty hit Tevin Reese on a 93-yard touchdown pass midway through the second quarter to give Baylor a 14-7 lead, and another bomb -- this one 72 yards to Antwan Goodley -- extended the lead to 11 points. Petty already has 261 yards on 10/16 passing. Kansas State has relied heavily on the running game, racking up 163 yards on 27 first-half attempts.

In the Big Ten game of the week, Wisconsin has built a 21-6 halftime lead on No. 19 Northwestern. Wildcats quarterback Kain Colter left the game with an ankle injury, but has returned. Melvin Gordon broke a 71-yard touchdown run with just over two minutes left in the first half, but a late Northwestern field goal cut the Badger lead to 15.

Oklahoma, Georgia on upset alert at halftime

The Georgia Bulldogs and Oklahoma Sooners are both trailing at halftime, and it's safe to say that they are on #UPSETALERT. Georgia came into their game against Missouri with a ton of injuries, but the Tigers have shown some real quality in building a 28-10 halftime lead, in Athens no less. James Franklin has thrown and rushed for a touchdown in the first half hour, and the Tiger defense added a touchdown themselves off an Aaron Murray fumble.

Texas, meanwhile, came into the Red River Shootout as a two-touchdown underdog, but they're currently sporting a 23-10 halftime lead. The quarterback play has been mostly sloppy, but Case McCoy -- playing in relief for David Ash -- connected with Marcus Johnson for a beautiful 59-yard touchdown. Oklahoma did finally punch it into the end zone near the end of the half, but the Longhorns still have the upper hand.
