Faculty Soccer Scores, Rankings, Highlights: Ohio State, USC Amongst High 10 Groups Cruising In Week 3

Week 3 proved to be a big moment for college football’s top 10 teams. No. 7 USC improved to 3-0 in Lincoln Riley’s freshman season on Saturday night by beating Fresno State 45-17 behind a powerful all-around offensive tackle. Quarterback Caleb Williams threw for 284 yards and two touchdowns, while running backs Travis Dye and Austin Jones each had touchdowns and surpassed 100 yards on the ground. The hot start to Riley’s tenure marks the first time USC has scored at least 40 points in the first three games of the season since 2005 — the year the Trojans played Texas for the national championship.

Fresno State star quarterback Jake Haener was forced off the field early in the third quarter after sustaining a leg injury while being released by USC’s Solomon Byrd. The Bulldogs were only 21-10 down at that point, but the loss of the All Mountain West performer proved an insurmountable loss.

While USC’s performance was impressive, Saturday’s best offensive game for a top-10 team belonged to No. 3 Ohio State. The Buckeyes totaled 763 yards — the second-most in school history — and 36 first downs in a 77-21 Toledo win. Quarterback CJ Stroud threw for five touchdowns and the receiver trio of Emeka Egbuka, Jayden Ballard and Marvin Harrison Jr. each surpassed 100 yards on reception.

While every top 10 team won by double digits in Week 3, there was plenty of drama throughout the sport as No. 11 Michigan State, No. 12 BYU and No. 13 Miami each lost. Check out the full scoreboard summarizing the action below.
