That would be Vanderbilt, which was blown out in its first two games by Temple and Mississippi, and survived against Mid-American Conference member Massachusetts on Saturday after the Minutemen missed a game-tying field goal attempt in the final seconds.

Justin Thomas threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Deon Hill with 23 seconds remaining, and Georgia Tech avoided a huge upset after blowing a 25-point lead, beating Georgia Southern 42-38 on Saturday.

William & Mary defenders Jared Velasquez and Ivan Tagoe scored touchdowns in a 29-14 victory over Norfolk State on Saturday night. Tagoe batted a Terrance Ervin pass and Velasquez returned it 39 yards to put the FCS-ranked Tribe ahead 14-7 in the first quarter.

Michigan has been involved in a pair of lopsided routs in its first two games but the Wolverines hope to show their Week 1 performance was more indicative of the team's talent level than last week's drubbing at Notre Dame. Michigan couldn't have hand-picked a better opponent for a bounce-back effort than visiting Miami , who will come to town riding an 18-game losing streak.
