Comment: Maybe that Maryland hype was a bit premature. The team that rolled to two blowout wins to start the season, averaging 335.5 rushing yards for fourth in the nation, managed just 161 rushing yards in a close loss to Temple in Week 3. The Terrapins also lost the No. 21 ranking they had just earned.

Week 3 MVP

J.K. DOBBINS, RB, OHIO STATE

The junior ran for 193 yards — 175 in the first half alone — on 22 carries, including a 56-yard haul. He scored a 26-yard touchdown in the Buckeyes’ 51-10 beating of Indiana in their Big Ten opener. He also added two catches for 14 yards, scoring on a 4-yard reception. He earned the conference’s Co-Offensive Player of the Week award, shared with Gophers senior receiver Tyler Johnson.
