WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina

– Nate Wiggins broke up Sam Hartman’s fourth pass in the end zone to help No.5 Clemson hold No.21 Wake Forest 51-45 in double overtime on Saturday.

Wiggins had been targeted frequently by Hartman and Wake Forest receivers, but was able to knock down Hartman’s last ball for AT Perry. He fell to the turf in the end zone, then leapt up to join his team in the celebration.

DJ Uiagalelei threw for 375 yards and five touchdowns to lead Clemson (4-0, 2-0 ACC), including the go-ahead in the middle to Davis Allen to start the second overtime.

Hartman threw for 337 yards and a program-record six touchdowns for Wake Forest (3-1, 0-1), including two for Jahmal Banks and Donavon Greene. But the Demon Deacons clinched near midfield on a potentially game-winning drive to end regulation, then couldn’t stop the Tigers in the first OT after starting with Hartman’s TD throw to Perry.

No. 1 Georgia 39

22 Kent Street

ATHENS, Ga. – Brock Bowers scored two more touchdowns and Georgia survived a sloppy performance and a surprisingly serious effort from Kent State.

The Bulldogs (4-0) turned it over three times, struggled in the red zone, got burned on a fake punt and gave up several big plays to Kent State (1-3) in what was easily their worst performance of the season.

Kent State had the chance to make it a one-score game with less than 13 minutes left after Marquez Cooper scored on a 1-yard run to cap a 12-play, 75-yard drive. But a two-point conversion fell through, leaving the Bulldogs with a 32-22 lead.

No. 4 Michigan 34

Maryland 27

ANN ARBOUR, Mich. –Blake Corum rushed for a career-high 243 yards and two touchdowns and Michigan edged Maryland in the Big Ten opener for both teams.

14 Penn Street 33

Hundred. michigan 14

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. –Sean Clifford completed 22 of 34 passes for 217 yards and scored four touchdowns to lead Penn State.

No. 17 Baylor 31

No. 24 Pittsburgh 45

Rhode Island 24

PITTSBURGH –Tailback Israel Abanikanda rushed for four touchdowns and quarterback Kedon Slovis was solid in his return from injury as Pittsburgh beat Rhode Island.

The Panthers (3-1) rushed for 272 yards and scored at least 30 points for the ninth time in 11 games, and Slovis had plenty of rushing help from Abanikanda, who had 19 carries for 177 yards .
