TEXAS TECH 49, No. 5 WEST VIRGINIA 14
LUBBOCK, Texas — Seth Doege passed for six touchdowns and a season-high 499 yards as Texas Tech shocked No. 5 West Virginia 49-14, ending the Mountaineers’ hopes for an unbeaten season.
The Red Raiders fans stormed the field after the win, the most lopsided Texas Tech victory ever over a team ranked in the top five.
Texas Tech’s defense consistently stymied West Virginia’s offense. Heisman Trophy hopeful Geno Smith completed 29 of 55 passes for 275 yards.
The Red Raiders offense had no trouble moving the ball as Doege threw TD passes of 39, 19, 16, 2, 29 and 7 yards. He completed 32 of 42 passes and the six touchdowns matched his career-high. Darrin Moore caught three touchdown passes.
Texas Tech had 18 plays of 15 yards or more, including a 61-yard pass to Jace Amaro and a 53-yard touchdown run by SaDale Foster.
No. 7 NOTRE DAME 20, No. 17 STANFORD 13, OT
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — TJ Jones made a reaching 7-yard touchdown catch in overtime and No. 7 Notre Dame stopped Stanford inches from the goal line to beat the 17th-ranked Cardinal 20-13.
After Jones and Tommy Rees gave the Fighting Irish a seven-point lead in OT, Stanford drove to a first-and-goal at the 4.
Stepfan Taylor ran for 1 on first, 2 on second and inches on third down. That left one play from inside the 1 and the Notre Dame defense, led by Carlos Calabrese, stood up Taylor and pushed him back.
No. 13 OKLAHOMA 63, No. 15 TEXAS 21
DALLAS — Damien Williams broke off a 95-yard touchdown run for the longest rush in Red River Rivalry history, Blake Bell powered his way in for four TDs and No. 13 Oklahoma beat No. 15 Texas 63-21 for its second straight blowout in the series.
Landry Jones threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns, and fullback Trey Millard had a career-best 119 yards receiving as the Sooners added another rout to Bob Stoops’ impressive rivalry resume.
No. 6 KANSAS STATE 27, IOWA STATE 21
AMES, Iowa — Quarterback Collin Klein ran for 105 yards and three touchdowns and sixth-ranked Kansas State held off Iowa State 27-21 for its fifth straight win over the Cyclones.
Klein also threw for 187 yards for the Wildcats, who remain unbeaten heading into next week’s showdown with West Virginia.
Kansas State held the Cyclones to just 231 yards of offense. Iowa State still had a chance for the game-winning drive from its own 3-yard line with 2:17 left, but the Wildcats stopped the Cyclones on downs.
The Wildcats held the ball for nearly 41 minutes and converted eight of 17 third downs.
Jared Barnett threw for 166 yards and two TDs for Iowa State.
No. 10 OREGON STATE 42, BYU 24
PROVO, Utah — Cody Vaz passed for 332 yards and three touchdowns in his first start since high school and No. 10 Oregon State used a strong start and bigger finish to beat Brigham Young 42-24.
Vaz was filling in for Sean Mannion, who is out indefinitely with a left knee injury.
Oregon State is 5-0 for the first time since 1939.
No. 20 RUTGERS 23, SYRACUSE 15
PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Duron Harmon scooped up a blocked field goal attempt and ran 75 yard for a tie-breaking touchdown early in the third quarter and No. 20 Rutgers rode its defense and special teams to a 23-15 victory over Syracuse.
Big East Conference defensive player of the year Khaseem Greene forced three fumbles and intercepted a pass.
