SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Tommy Rees threw four TD passes in the first half, Notre Dame built a big early lead, and the Irish rolled to their fourth straight victory Saturday, routing Air Force, 59-33. It marked the most combined points ever for a game at Notre Dame Stadium. And the 59 points were the most by Notre Dame since beating Rutgers, 62-0, in 1996 in Lou Holtz's final home game as Irish coach. The two teams combined for 1,125 yards of total offense - 565 by Air Force and 560 by Notre Dame.

Tommy Rees came off the bench to lead Notre Dame on a winning, last-minute drive Saturday as the No. 22 Irish got a 27-yard field goal from Kyle Brindza with seven seconds left and beat Purdue, 20-17, in South Bend, Ind. Rees, who was suspended for the opener last week because he had been involved in a skirmish with police at a party in May, relieved starter Everett Golson late in the fourth quarter. Purdue (1-1) had tied the game at 17 when Caleb TerBush threw a 15-yard TD pass to Antavian Edison with 2 minutes, 12 seconds left, the score set up by Josh Johnson's recovery of a Golson fumble.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Randy Edsall credited his players for helping him win his debut as Maryland's coach. Al Golden took all the blame for the loss in his first game at Miami.

Danny O'Brien went 31 for 44 for 348 yards, Nick Ferrara kicked four field goals, and Maryland returned two turnovers for touchdowns in a rousing victory.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The score is uglier than the game was. Temple held its own in Saturday's 28-6 loss at Notre Dame. The Irish needed six offensive plays to produce two touchdowns and before you could say Lou Holtz, it was 14-0 barely five minutes into the game. "A few of us were nervous . . . everyone was," said Tyler Matakevich, a sophomore who is the next great Temple linebacker. "Once we got settled. We played very well; football that we're capable of. " Temple controlled the majority of the first half afterward, but missed a pair of field goals and the extra point on their only touchdown of the game.

Tommy Rees shrugged off a miserable start to hit tight end Tyler Eifert on a 6-yard touchdown pass with less than seven minutes to go and lift visiting Notre Dame to a 15-12 win over Pittsburgh on Saturday. The score and subsequent two-point conversion - also to Eifert - capped 4 minutes, 40 seconds of perfection from Rees as the Irish (2-2) won their second straight. Rees went 8 for 8 on the game-winning drive, remaining patient even as the Panthers (2-2) bottled up Irish receiver Michael Floyd.

AJ McCarron threw three touchdown passes, T.J. Yeldon ran for 133 yards and two scores, and top-ranked Alabama overwhelmed No. 10 Louisiana State, 38-17, in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Saturday night. The Crimson Tide (9-0, 6-0 SEC) turned to power football to take control of a game that was tied early in the third quarter. Yeldon carried 18 times in the second half, 25 overall, after catching the game-winning touchdown pass in last season's meeting with the Tigers (7-3, 3-3). Alabama scored the final 21 points to brush aside LSU. McCarron was a workmanlike 14-of-20 passing for 179 yards, letting Yeldon, Kenyan Drake and their blockers assert control.

Florida State's redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston reaffirmed his Heisman Trophy candidacy on Saturday, putting up career-highs with 393 yards passing and five touchdowns as the No. 8 Seminoles (5-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) demolished No. 25 Maryland, 63-0, in Tallahassee, Fla. The lopsided score tied the point-differential for the worst loss by a Top 25 team all-time. No. 11 Texas lost, 66-3, to UCLA in 1997. Things went from bad to worse for the Terrapins (4-1, 0-1)

On a handful of costly plays Saturday, Matt Rhule saw something from his Temple players on defense that he did not like: a lack of confidence. When Notre Dame struck for three touchdowns in the first half of a season-opening 28-6 victory against the Owls, Rhule saw players second-guessing themselves and making decisions that for the better part of the afternoon they did not make. "The big thing for me is not to beat yourself," Rhule said Monday during his weekly teleconference with reporters.

JUSTIN GATLIN beat Usain Bolt by one-hundredth of a second yesterday to win the 100 meters at the Golden Gala meet in Rome - the Jamaican's first significant loss since his false-start disqualification at the 2011 world championships in South Korea. Gatlin was timed in 9.94 seconds and was restrained in his celebration. The American has won all five of his 100-meter races this year and is shaping up as a serious threat to Bolt at the world championships in Moscow in August. Bolt briefly covered his face with his hands after the race, then saluted the crowd.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Alabama lost once this season, mostly because of what Texas A & M's Johnny Manziel was able to do to extend its defense. Now Notre Dame is pinning much of its national title game hopes on the dual-threat skills of another redshirt freshman quarterback. The difference being, Everett Golson hasn't won a Heisman Trophy yet. "Third downs were key for [A & M], and then [Manziel] ad-libbing a little bit," said Chuck Martin, Notre Dame's first-year offensive coordinator.

TJ Jones made a reaching 7-yard touchdown catch in overtime and No. 7 Notre Dame stopped Stanford inches from the goal line to beat the 17th-ranked Cardinal, 20-13, Saturday in South Bend, Ind. After Jones and Tommy Rees gave the Fighting Irish (6-0) a seven-point lead in overtime, Stanford (4-2) drove to a first and goal at the 4. Stepfan Taylor ran for 1 on first, 2 on second, and inches on third down. That left one play from inside the 1, and the Notre Dame defense, led by Carlos Calabrese, stood up Taylor and pushed him back.
