No. 13 OREGON STATE 36, ARIZONA STATE 26

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Cody Vaz recovered from a shaky start to throw for 267 yards and three touchdowns and lead Oregon State.

Terron Ward rushed for 146 yards and a touchdown for the Beavers (7-1, 5-1), taking on extra work when starting running back Storm Woods left early in the game with a sore left knee.

Arizona State (5-4, 3-3) scored on the return after Vaz fumbled on Oregon State's opening drive, but the Beavers pulled away after a 19-all tie at the half to keep the Sun Devils from bowl eligibility.

Vaz had started two games for the Beavers and won them both while Mannion recovered from left knee surgery. Mannion, a sophomore, started the Beavers' first four games and averaged 339 yards passing, but was off when he returned in the 20-17 loss to the Huskies.

Vaz's night started disastrously when he lost the ball on Oregon State's own 1 on the opening drive and Arizona State defensive end Junior Onyeali returned it for the touchdown to give the Sun Devils the early lead.

No. 14 OKLAHOMA 35, IOWA ST. 20

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Landry Jones threw for 405 yards and a season-best four touchdowns and Oklahoma beat Iowa State to move coach Bob Stoops into a second-place tie with Bud Wilkinson on the Sooners' career win list.

Stoops got his 145th win and is 12 shy of tying Barry Switzer for most in school history.

Brennan Clay ran for 157 yards as the Sooners bounced back from a loss to Notre Dame. Oklahoma (6-2, 4-1 Big 12) has won 20 straight following a defeat in the regular season.

Steele Jantz threw for 191 yards for Iowa State (5-4, 2-4). The Cyclones lost their 21st straight home game against the Sooners, a stretch of futility that dates back 52 years.

No. 15 STANFORD 48, COLORADO 0

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Kevin Hogan ignited Stanford's sputtering offense and helped the Cardinal hand Colorado its first shutout at home in 26 years.

Hogan picked apart the nation's worst defense, throwing for 184 yards and running for 48 more in just two quarters of work, and the Buffaloes were powerless to respond, gaining 76 yards of offense behind a trio of overwhelmed quarterbacks.

The Cardinal (7-2, 5-1 Pac-12) handed the Buffs (1-8, 1-5) their first shutout at Folsom Field since a 28-0 loss to Oklahoma on Nov. 15, 1986, snapping a streak of 150 straight games in which the Buffs had scored at home.

No. 16 TEXAS A&M 38, NO. 17 MISSISSIPPI ST. 13

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Johnny Manziel threw for 311 yards and ran for 129 yards and two touchdowns, leading Texas A&M to a win over Mississippi State.

Manziel, a redshirt freshman, completed 30 of 36 passes. He ran for a 37-yard touchdown in the second quarter that helped the Aggies build a 31-0 lead by early in the second half.

The SEC's leading rusher added an 8-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

Texas A&M (7-2, 4-2 SEC) has won all five of its road games this season. Christine Michael ran for 50 yards and two touchdowns and Ryan Swope caught nine passes for 121 yards.

Tyler Russell completed 19 of 30 passes for 212 yards for Mississippi State (7-2, 3-2).

SAN DIEGO STATE 21, No. 19 BOISE STATE 19

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Adam Muema rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown and San Diego State's special teams had a hand in two other scores in the upset.

Colin Lockett returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, then in the third quarter Dwayne Garrett reached over a blocker and deflected Trevor Harman's punt to set up another score. Garrett scooped up the bouncing ball and was pushed out of bounds at the Boise State 8. Two plays later, Muema scored on a 3-yard run that put the Aztecs (7-3, 5-1 Mountain West) up 14-13.

Boise State (7-2, 4-1) and quarterback Joe Southwick, who struggled throughout the second half, rallied in the fourth quarter. Down 21-13 with 12:20 remaining, Southwick led the Broncos on a 16-play, 75-yard drive capped by his 1-yard touchdown toss to fullback Dan Paul that pulled Boise State within 21-19. The Broncos went for 2, but Southwick was pressured and his fluttering pass was picked off near the goal line by Rene Siluano.

TEXAS 31, No. 20 TEXAS TECH 21

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — David Ash threw for 264 yards and three touchdowns to lead Texas past Texas Tech for its third straight win.

Mike Davis had a career-high 165 yards on four catches, one a 75-yarder from Ash in the second quarter for the Longhorns (7-2, 4-2), who remain alive in the Big 12 race. Freshman Johnathan Gray had 106 yards on 20 carries for Texas.

Seth Doege threw for 329 yards and a touchdown for Texas Tech (6-3, 3-3), which was badly hurt by penalties, including a touchdown being called back in the fourth quarter for holding.

The Red Raiders had to settle for field goals on four trips to the red zone.

No. 21 NEBRASKA 28, MICHIGAN ST. 24

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Taylor Martinez threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner with 6 seconds left and Nebraska remained tied with Michigan atop the Big Ten Legends Division.

The Cornhuskers (7-2, 4-1) scored two touchdowns in the final 7:02 to erase a 24-14 deficit. The winning score was set up by a pass interference call in the end zone on Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard, which gave Nebraska the ball at the 5.

Le'Veon Bell ran for 188 yards and two touchdowns for the Spartans (5-5, 2-4).

Martinez rushed for 205 yards and two touchdowns, becoming the career leader in total offense for Nebraska, which is unbeaten in seven meetings with Michigan State.

No. 22 LOUISIANA TECH 51, UTSA 27

RUSTON, La. (AP) — Kenneth Dixon scored three touchdowns and Louisiana Tech pulled away from Texas-San Antonio in the fourth quarter.

The Bulldogs (8-1, 3-0 WAC) converted a fake field goal attempt into a touchdown midway through the fourth. Tech won a record ninth consecutive WAC game on homecoming and the Bulldogs appear headed for a school-record third consecutive week ranked in the Top 25.

UTSA (5-4, 1-3) dropped its fourth in a row after opening the season with five straight victories. It was the Roadrunners' first game against a nationally-ranked FCS foe.

The game featured 13 personal foul penalties between the two teams.

TCU 39, No. 23 WEST VIRGINIA 38, 2OT

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Corey Fuller caught a 25-yard touchdown pass and Trevone Boykin threw to Josh Boyce for the 2-point conversion, lifting TCU over West Virginia.

TCU (6-3, 3-3 Big 12) got the victory after West Virginia (5-3, 2-3) went ahead on Geno Smith's 25-yard TD pass to Stedman Bailey in the second overtime.

On TCU's possession, Boykin handed off to B.J. Catalon and he pitched to Brandon Carter, who threw to Fuller in the end zone. Boyce then caught the 2-point conversion.

TCU rallied from 10 points down to force overtime. Boykin and Boyce teamed up on a 96-yard TD pass play with 1:28 left to tie the score at 31-31.

No. 25 UCLA 66, No. 24 ARIZONA 10

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — Johnathan Franklin had 162 yards in becoming UCLA's career rushing leader and redshirt freshman Brett Hundley passed for 288 yards and three touchdowns as the Bruins moved into first place in the Pac-12 South.

Franklin, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound senior from Los Angeles, entered needing 21 yards to overtake Gaston Green, who gained 3,731 yards from 1984-87.

Franklin moved into the top spot with a 37-yard touchdown run on his third carry, capping a 75-yard, nine-play drive following the opening kickoff that put the Bruins (7-2, 4-2 Pac-12) ahead for good.

Franklin, who carried 24 times and scored twice, raised his career rushing total to 3,873 yards as the Bruins, off to their best start since 2005 under first-year coach Jim Mora, raced to a 42-3 halftime lead in snapping a five-game losing streak to the Wildcats (5-4, 2-4), who beat them 48-12 in Tucson last year.

The win gave the Bruins a better record than crosstown rival Southern California through nine games for the first time since 2001.

Arizona's Matt Scott, ranked second nationally in total offense at 386.1 yards per game, completed 15 of 25 passes for 124 yards before being shaken up and leaving the game midway through the third quarter.
