YPSILANTI, MICH.

Dri Archer’s three touchdowns — one rushing, one receiving and one on a kickoff return — helped Kent State spoil Eastern Michigan’s homecoming. Archer scored on a 5-yard pass from Spencer Keith early in the second quarter, then ran the second-half kickoff back 98 yards to put the Golden Flashes (4-1, 3-0 Mid-American) ahead 24-7. Later in the third, his 64-yard run made it 38-7.

Bowling Green 24, Akron 10

AKRON

Matt Schilz threw two touchdown passes to Alex Bayer to lead a second-half Bowling Green comeback. The first of those two scores was a 60-yarder that capped a 17-point third quarter for the Falcons (3-3, 1-1), who trailed 10-0 at halftime. Bowling Green held the Zips (1-5, 0-2), who gained 280 first-half yards, to 36 in the second half. Anthony Samuel carried 15 times for 117 yards.

Ohio 38, Buffalo 31

ATHENS

Ryan Boykin ran for two fourth-quarter touchdowns and Daz’mond Patterson’s 100-yard kickoff return propelled Ohio from an early 14-0 deficit. The Bobcats (6-0, 2-0) trailed 14-0 when Patterson’s kickoff return kick-started the offense with the first of 24 consecutive points. Beau Blankenship scored on a 14-yard run and Tyler Tettleton hit Tyler Futrell on a 15-yard scoring pass, then Matt Weller’s 45-yard field goal stretched the lead to 24-14.

Toledo 50, Central Michigan 35

TOLEDO

Mark Singer and Jermaine Robinson returned interceptions for fourth-quarter touchdowns to help Toledo preserve a come-from-behind victory. The Rockets (5-1, 2-0), who won their fifth straight following a season-opening overtime loss at Arizona, trailed 21-10 with 8:08 left in the first half. Toledo’s Terrance Owens scored on an 11-yard run 13 seconds before halftime, then the Rockets regained the lead on Bernard Reedy’s 66-yard punt return with 9:07 remaining in the third.

N. Illinois 35, Ball State 23

MUNCIE, IND.

Jordan Lynch accounted for 402 yards and gave Northern Illinois the lead for good with a 54-yard touchdown pass to Akeem Daniels. Northern Illinois (5-1, 2-0), which has won five straight after a season-opening loss to Iowa, trailed 23-14 after Keith Wenning’s short TD run for the Cardinals (3-3, 1-2) in the third quarter. But Lynch, who ran for 207 yards on 29 carries, scored on a 12-yard run.
