MIAMI — Kansas State stopped Miami quarterback Jacory Harris’ fourth-down run at the goal line with 49 seconds remaining, capping a brilliant late stand that sealed the Wildcats’ 28-24 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday.

John Hubert ran for 166 yards and the go-ahead touchdown for Kansas State (3-0).

Harris threw for 272 yards and two touchdowns for Miami (1-2).

NO. 13 VIRGINIA TECH 30, MARSHALL 10

In Huntington, W.Va., David Wilson rushed for 132 yards, Josh Oglesby scored two touchdowns and Virginia Tech beat Marshall (1-3).

It was another lackluster win for the Hokies, who are off to their first 4-0 start since 2006.

TEMPLE 38, MARYLAND 7

In College Park, Md., Bernard Pierce set a school record with five rushing touchdowns, and Temple built a 31-point halftime lead in a stunning rout of Maryland.

BOSTON COLLEGE 45, MASSACHUSETTS 17

In Boston, Chase Rettig threw for three touchdowns and Boston College’s linebackers returned two fumbles for scores to lead the Eagles to their first win of the season, routing Massachusetts (2-1).

The Eagles (1-3) were off to their worst start since opening 1991 with four losses.
