NO. 6 CLEMSON 58, MIAMI (FL) 0

MIAMI GARDENS — Deshaun Watson passed for 143 yards and a touchdown and ran for another 98 yards and a score, and No. 6 Clemson rolled to a 58-0 win over Miami (FL) in a shocking shutout on Saturday.

Watson, who completed 15 of 19 passes, carried the ball eight times in the game.

The defeat suffered by the Hurricanes was their worst loss in school history, as the game didn’t quite go according to the script, as Miami started on the back foot and trailed 42-0 at half time.

Wayne Gallman ran for 118 yards and a score and Kelly Bryant rushed for two scores for the Tigers, who improved to 7-0 on the season and 4-0 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Clemson finished with 567 total yards and held the Canes to just 146 total yards.

The defeat wasn’t a good one for the already under pressure Al Golden, who had hoped to spring a surprise this weekend, but he and his team were left embarrassed at home.

NO. 2 BAYLOR 45, IOWA STATE 27

WACO, Texas — Shock Linwood ran for 171 yards and a touchdown and also caught a pass for another score and No. 2 Baylor matched to a 45-27 victory over Iowa State in college football action on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Bears coach Art Briles revealed that quarterback Seth Russell strained his neck in the fourth quarter, which is why he was replaced by Jarrett Stidham.

Before he went off, though, Russell went 16 of 37 on passes for 197 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for another 64 yards and a score, as the Bears (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) extended its win streak to an FBS-best 20th consecutive home win.

Corey Coleman also caught six catches for 85 yards and two touchdowns for Baylor, which led 35-7 at halftime, but had a pedestrian-type second half.

The Bears can now head into their bye week on the right foot, as they prepare for the away trip to Kansas State on Nov. 5.

Joel Lanning threw three touchdown passes for 144 yards and Mike Warren ran for 145 yards for Iowa State (2-5, 1-3).

With the game locked at 16-16 in the fourth quarter, Aguayo attempted what would have been a game-winning 56-yard field goal.

However, with 6 seconds remaining, the star kicker saw his try blocked by Patrick Gamble, and Austin picked it up and wiggled his way past a number of defenders and into the end zone for a touchdown for the Yellow Jackets (3-5, 1-4 Atlantic Coast Conference).

The Seminoles (6-1, 4-1) were suffering their first defeat of the season.
