Let's call it "Blowout Saturday"
The might not be the official name, but it was quite a record-breaking day when it came to points.
It was the most lopsided victory since 1935 when Ohio State beat Drake 85-7.
No. 7 Louisville also surpassed the 70 mark with a 72-0 victory over Florida International. It was the highest-scoring game for Louisville since beating Murray State 73-10 in 2007.
Just when you thought the season couldn't get any worse for the Panthers, the game marked FIU's biggest loss since losing 62-3 to Florida in 2009 and 59-0 to Penn State in 2007. And to think, two years ago FIU beat Louisville 24-17.
According to STATS, the Bears are the first FBS team since LSU in 1930 to open a season with at least 60 points in three consecutive games.
Miami had a chance to become the first team to score 80 this season, but took it easy on Savannah State in the second half, scoring 49 points in the first half en route to a 77-7 victory. The Hurricanes set a school record for points in a game, topping the 75 scored against Fordham in 1954.
The teams didn't institute a running clock in the fourth quarter, but close enough:

Here are some other lopsided results that had teams winning by 45+ points:
Iowa 59, Western Michigan 3
Virginia 49, VMI 0
Florida State 54, Bethune-Cookman 6
Mississippi State 62, Troy 7
Two other games almost found themselves in the record books for most points between two teams, heading into overtime.
Pittsburgh held on to beat Duke 58-55 and Old Dominion snuck past The Citadel 59-58. If either of those games went into overtime, they would have broken the old mark of 104 total points when Arkon and Eastern Michigan were tied 52-52 in 2001.
