Gerry Bohanon threw a touchdown pass and ran for two more scores, Baylor’s defense constantly pressured Oklahoma’s quarterbacks, and the Bears won 27-14 on Saturday in Waco, Texas, to end the Sooners’ national-best 17-game winning streak.

Abram Smith had 148 yards rushing, including a 75-yard scamper to set up the first of Bohanon’s rushing touchdowns in the fourth quarter, and the Bears (8-2, 5-2 Big 12 Conference), No. 13 in the College Football Playoff rankings, rebounded from an unexpected loss last week at struggling Texas Christian.

“I know we’ll keep going,” Bohanon said. “I know that was just motivation for what we can do and we can be as a team.”


The Sooners (9-1, 6-1), No. 8 in the CFP rankings, were held to 260 total yards, their fewest ever with Lincoln Riley in his five seasons as head coach and two seasons as offensive coordinator before that. It was their fewest points in a regular-season game since a 48-14 home loss to Baylor in 2014.

“It’s controlled confidence. You know, we put in the work and we expected results,” said linebacker Terrel Bernard, who had nine tackles and two sacks for Baylor. “We didn’t play up to our standard last week. And we corrected some things on tape. We put in a great game plan and came out here and executed.”

Oklahoma lost in November under Riley for the first time.

Baylor fans stormed the field when they believed the game was over, but there had been a timeout and three seconds remained. Pretty much all of Oklahoma’s team had left the field, and it took several minutes to clear the field.

After an extended discussion among the referees, and an irate Riley, the Sooners’ defense returned to the field for the final snap. That was a 32-yard field goal by Isaiah Hankins for scoring that could come into play in a Big 12 tiebreaker, and the fans then swarmed the field again.

Baylor coach Dave Aranda said he was thinking about Big 12 tiebreakers that include point differential.


“I know why Dave tried to kick field goal. I don’t agree with it,” Riley said. “I still think above all else, there’s a code of sportsmanship that I believe in. I wouldn’t have done it.”

Dave Aranda honed his defensive schemes and team-first philosophy at Redlands High, never losing focus on learning. His success could lead him to USC.

Oklahoma freshman quarterback Caleb Williams, who had been so dynamic since leading a big comeback against Texas last month, threw two interceptions. Preseason Associated Press All-American quarterback Spencer Rattler, whom he had replaced as the starter, took over late in the third quarter.

Williams had a two-yard touchdown run early but finished 10-for-19 passing for 146 yards while getting sacked three times. Rattler was sacked twice as well, and Williams returned to complete three passes for 74 yards on a late drive before Kennedy Brooks’ one-yard touchdown with 2:26 left.

“Disappointing. No other way to put it,” Riley said. “Still a whole lot left for this football team. ... We’ll bounce back like we always do and like we fully expect to.”

Anthony Brown Jr. threw for 135 yards and a touchdown and rushed for 123 yards and another score, and the Ducks (9-1, 6-1 Pac-12) defeated the Cougars (5-5, 4-3).

Oregon, No. 3 in the College Football Playoff rankings, has won five straight and extended its winning streak at Autzen Stadium to 18 straight games, including 14 straight victories at home over Pac-12 opponents.

The Ducks needed to win and for Stanford to beat Oregon State in Corvallis earlier Saturday to clinch the Pac-12 North. The Beavers didn’t hold up their end, winning 35-14 over Stanford.

Washington State tied the score at 14 before halftime, but Oregon pulled away in the third quarter. The loss ended a four-game winning streak over Pac-12 opponents for the Cougars, who fell to Brigham Young on Oct. 23 in a midseason nonconference game.


The Cougars still need one more win to become bowl eligible and perhaps redeem a season that has been marked by turbulence. Washington State dismissed coach Nick Rolovich on Oct. 18 after he refused to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Jayden de Laura threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns for the Cougars. He was intercepted twice.

C.J. Stroud, a former Rancho Cucamonga High standout, threw for 361 yards and five touchdowns, freshman TreVeyon Henderson rumbled for two more scores, and the Buckeyes (9-1, 7-0 Big Ten) struck early and rolled over the Boilermakers (6-4, 4-3).

Ohio State scored on all seven of its first-half possessions, piling up 45 points against a Purdue team that hadn’t given up more than 30 in any game this year.


The Buckeyes had been wobbly at times the previous two weeks and were understandably wary of Purdue, which already upset two top-five teams this season.

Desmond Ridder accounted for three touchdowns, and No. 5 Cincinnati prevailed 45-28 at South Florida on Friday night to improve to 10-0 this season.

But Ohio State romped early, capitalizing on two Boilermakers turnovers, the second of which was a fumbled kickoff recovered on the Purdue 14-yard line. The 12-yard catch by Garrett Wilson two plays later gave the Buckeyes two touchdowns in 14 seconds.

Wilson, who was unavailable last week because of unspecified reasons, had 10 catches for 126 yards and three touchdowns. Jaxson Smith-Njigba followed up a 15-catch, 240-yard effort last week with nine catches for 139 yards a touchdown.

Purdue quarterback Aiden O’Connell was 40 for 52 and threw four touchdown passes. David Bell had 11 catches for 103 yards.

Stetson Bennett ran for a touchdown and threw for another as the Bulldogs (10-0, 8-0) remained perfect, wrapping up their Southeastern Conference schedule by routing the Volunteers (5-5, 3-4).

Georgia actually trailed by its largest margin this season after Tennessee scored a touchdown on the opening drive. The Bulldogs also were down 10-7 at the end of the first quarter, new territory for Georgia, which had only trailed by a field goal each to Auburn and Missouri.

Georgia responded by reeling off 27 straight points, including 17 in a dominant second quarter. Derion Kendrick intercepted a pass by Hendon Hooker, and Channing Tindall stripped Hooker of the ball — Tindall had three of Georgia’s six sacks.

UCLA got off to a dismal start and trailed at halftime before scoring 37 unanswered points in a 44-20 victory over Colorado at the Rose Bowl.


Bennett converted the interception into a nine-yard touchdown run midway through the second, and he capped a 90-yard drive with a 23-yard touchdown pass to James Cook just before halftime. Cook also ran 10 times for a season-high 104 yards and two more touchdowns.

Tennessee had five-time NFL most valuable player Peyton Manning, former All-Star first baseman Todd Helton and WNBA champion Candace Parker on hand along with an announced crowd of 100,074.


at No. 2 Alabama 59, New Mexico State 3

Bryce Young passed for 270 yards and five touchdowns, including three to Jameson Williams, in the nonconference rout.

Young, a former Santa Ana Mater Dei High standout, completed 21 of 23 passes in just more than a half, and the Crimson Tide (9-1) produced the expected romp after a slow start. Alabama even trailed briefly before rattling off seven touchdowns in 20 minutes for a 49-3 halftime lead over the Aggies (1-9).


No. 6 Michigan 21, at Penn State 17

Cade McNamara threw a 47-yard touchdown pass to tight end Erick All with 3:29 left, and the Wolverines (9-1, 6-1) stayed in the Big Ten championship race by rallying past the Nittany Lions (6-4, 3-4). McNamara completed 19 of 29 passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns to boost Michigan.


Hassan Haskins ran for 156 yards in 31 carries and Roman Wilson caught a pair of touchdown passes for the Wolverines, who led 14-6 midway through the fourth quarter.

Penn State tried a pair of trick plays from kick formation in the first quarter, with mixed results.

Payton Thorne threw two of his four touchdown passes to Jayden Reed and Kenneth Walker ran for 143 yards and two scores, helping the Spartans (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten) bounce back from their first loss with a victory over the Terrapins (5-5, 2-5).

Michigan State stayed in the Big Ten championship race.

If coach Mel Tucker’s team can upset Ohio State on the road next Saturday and beat Penn State at home the following week, it will be in the conference championship game with an opportunity to earn a spot in the College Football Playoff.


Maryland has lost five of its last six games.


No. 9 Notre Dame 28, at Virginia 3

Jack Coan threw three touchdown passes, and the Fighting Irish (9-1) extended their regular-season winning streak against Atlantic Coast Conference schools to 23 games with a victory over the Cavaliers (6-4).

Coan connected with Michael Mayer from six yards, Braden Lenzy from four yards and Kevin Austin from 15 yards for Notre Dame, which also stretched its road winning streak against teams from the ACC to 11 games.

Virginia played without quarterback Brennan Armstrong, who leads the nation in total offense with an average of 425.3 yards but did not dress after sustaining a rib injury in a loss to Brigham Young two weeks ago.

Jay Woolfolk, the first true freshman to start at quarterback for the Cavaliers since Bryan Shumock in 1977, was ineffective.

Jaylen Warren ran for three touchdowns to help the Cowboys (9-1, 6-1 Big 12) roll past the Horned Frogs (4-6, 2-5).

Oklahoma State, which won its third straight, moved into a tie for first place in the conference with Oklahoma with two games remaining, including a showdown with the Sooners on Nov. 27.

Warren ran for 103 yards and three touchdowns in 14 carries in the first half as the Cowboys took a 28-3 lead.

TCU couldn’t carry the momentum from a stunning win over Baylor the previous week.

A.J. Finley returned an interception 52 yards for a touchdown and Matt Corral threw for 247 yards and a touchdown to lead the Rebels (8-2, 3-3 SEC) to a victory over the Aggies (7-3, 4-3).

Mississippi held a 15-13 lead in the fourth quarter before Ashanti Cistrunk’s interception set up a 13-yard touchdown run by Snoop Conner with 6:32 left.

Finley provided an insurmountable cushion on the next series, grabbing Zach Calzada’s throw and returning it down the Texas A&M sideline.

The Aggies trailed 15-0 at halftime but whittled the deficit to 15-13 in the fourth quarter on a 24-yard scoring run by Devon Achane and field goals by Seth Small.


Achane had 110 yards in 12 carries. Calzada was 24-for-41 passing for 237 yards.

Sam Hartman accounted for four touchdowns and Justice Ellison ran for a short score with 1:47 left to help the Demon Deacons (9-1, 6-0 ACC) beat the Wolfpack (7-3, 4-2) claim a critical Atlantic Coast Conference division win.

The win allowed Wake Forest to take a huge step toward claiming the Atlantic Division championship won by Clemson each year on the way to winning the last six league titles. The Demon Deacons now must win one of their last two games, both on the road, to secure the division winner’s ticket to the ACC championship game.

Fittingly, in a matchup of the division’s top two teams, Wake Forest had to grind to the final minute to hold off N.C. State and quarterback Devin Leary.


Ellison’s four-yard score pushed the Demon Deacons to a 45-35 lead, though the Wolfpack responded with a clutch drive that ended with Leary’s eight-yard touchdown pass to Devin Carter with 45 seconds left. N.C. State then nearly recovered the onside kick, with Ricky Person Jr. grabbing the bouncing ball about a yard shy of the 10-yard requirement to secure the possession.

That illegal-touching penalty gave the ball to Wake Forest and held up on review, ultimately allowing Hartman to take a knee and melt the final seconds.

Leary threw for 408 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Wolfpack.


Mississippi State 43, at No. 17 Auburn 34

Will Rogers threw for 415 yards and six touchdowns to lead the Bulldogs (6-4, 4-3 SEC) past the Tigers 6-4, 3-3).

Auburn scored touchdowns on its first four possessions and led 28-3 midway through the second quarter. But Mississippi State rallied, scoring 40 unanswered points behind Rogers’ arm.


Rogers completed 44 of 54 passes, connecting with 10 Bulldogs. Jaden Walley had seven catches for 87 yards, and Jakai Polk finished with 61 yards and two touchdowns in eight receptions.

Auburn’s offense got off to a strong start behind Bo Nix, who finished with 377 yards passing and two touchdowns. But, as the defense struggled to slow Mississippi State’s passing attack, the Tigers were held to 158 yards and six points in the second half.


at No. 18 Wisconsin 35, Northwestern 7

Braelon Allen rushed for 173 yards and three touchdowns to help the Badgers (7-3, 5-2 Big Ten) rout the Wildcats (3-7, 1-6) for their sixth consecutive victory. Graham Mertz threw two touchdown passes, and Wisconsin’s defense recorded four interceptions. Northwestern’s Andrew Marty was picked off three times for a second consecutive week.

Wisconsin entered the day in a four-way tie for the Big Ten West lead with Minnesota, Purdue and Iowa. The Badgers already have beaten Iowa and Purdue. They visit Minnesota on Nov. 27 to close the regular season.

The Wildcats lost their fourth straight.

Alex Padilla threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in his first career start, and the Hawkeyes (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) withstood three fourth-quarter comeback attempts to beat the Gophers (6-4, 4-3).

Iowa led 24-16 before Minnesota’s Tanner Morgan threw a 68-yard touchdown pass to Chris Autman-Bell with 5:28 to play. The Gophers went for the two-point conversion, but Morgan’s pass was tipped by Hawkeyes safety Dane Belton and fell incomplete.

Minnesota got the ball back at its own 10-yard line with 3:08 left. Morgan was sacked for a seven-yard loss on second down, and his fourth-down pass was broken up by Iowa’s Matt Hankins.

Caleb Shudak’s 29-yard field goal provided the final margin, and then the Hawkeyes’ defense bowed up one more time when the Gophers drove to the Iowa 39. The game ended with Joe Evans sacking Morgan.

Greg Bell had 16 carries for 104 yards and Matt Araiza kicked a 35-yard field goal with 1:21 to play to help the Aztecs (9-1, 5-1 Mountain West) beat the Wolf Pack (7-3, 4-2).

San Diego State took sole possession of first place in the West Division, a half-game ahead of Fresno State — which beat the Aztecs 30-20 on Oct. 30 — and a full game in front of Nevada.

Araiza — who kicked field goals of 48 yards in the second quarter and 39 yards early in the fourth — bent the winner inside the upright to cap a 12-play, 53-yard drive. He also had five punts for 278 yards (55.6 yards per punt) and leads the FBS this season with 50 punts of 50-plus yards and 15 punts of 60 yards or more.

Wolf Pack quarterback Carson Strong completed 34 of 48 passes for 350 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.

Frank Harris passed for 227 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 54 yards, and the Roadrunners (10-0, 6-0 Conference USA) overcame a sluggish performance to beat the Golden Eagles (1-9, 0-6) and remain undefeated.

UTSA, Georgia and Cincinnati are the only remaining unbeaten Football Bowl Subdivision teams following No. 8 Oklahoma’s 27-14 loss at No. 13 Baylor.

The Roadrunners needed late defensive stands to avoid an upset by Southern Miss.

Cameron Rising threw for 294 yards and two touchdowns, T.J. Pledger ran for 119 yards and two touchdowns, and the Utes (7-3, 6-1) maintained their lead in the Pac-12 South by beating the Wildcats (1-9, 1-6).


It was a hard-earned win for Utah, which had a tougher time than expected with last-place Arizona. The Wildcats led for part of the first half and kept the game tight all afternoon.

Arizona’s Will Plummer finished with 219 yards passing and one touchdown.

Arkansas’ Cam Little kicked a 37-yard field goal in overtime after Louisiana State freshman quarterback Garrett Nussmeier was intercepted earlier in the extra period, and the Razorbacks (7-3, 3-3 SEC) beat the Tigers (4-6, 2-5).

Nussmeier, who has been a backup throughout this season, replaced Max Johnson after two fruitless possessions to start the game and completed 18 of 31 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown. But the promise he showed in spurts was overshadowed by his two interceptions.


Nussmeier’s second and most costly turnover came just two snaps after he appeared to have rescued LSU from a fruitless first overtime possession by completing a 24-yard pass to Malik Neighbors on third and 20.

After that, Arkansas needed just a field goal to win and set it up with three quarterback keepers by KJ Jefferson.

Tyrion Davis-Price rushed 28 times for 106 yards for the Tigers, who have lost three straight.

Rachaad White rushed for 184 yards and two touchdowns, and the Sun Devils (7-3, 5-2 Pac-12) erased a 14-point deficit to beat the Huskies (4-6, 3-4).


Arizona State used a nine-minute, 20-play drive to pull within three midway through the fourth quarter, then completed the comeback on White’s 10-yard touchdown run with 1:11 left. The Sun Devils remain in contention for a spot in the Pac-12 championship game with two games left.

Washington must win both of its remaining games to reach bowl eligibility. Trying to avoid their first losing season since 2009, the Huskies turned turmoil into motivation as they jumped to a 14-0 lead without suspended head coach Jimmy Lake and with new offensive coordinator Junior Adams, the wide receivers coach who was replacing the fired John Donovan. But many of the problems that have hampered Washington this season reemerged as mistakes proved costly.


at Oregon State 35, Stanford 14

Chance Nolan passed for 257 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for a score, leading the Beavers (6-4, 4-3 Pac-12) to a win over the Cardinal (3-7, 2-6).

The victory makes Oregon State bowl eligible for the first time since 2013 and ended an 11-game skid against Stanford.

Nolan completed 19 of 25 passes, including a 67-yard touchdown throw to Trevon Bradford that increased the lead to 21-0 early in the third quarter.


Injuries have taken a toll on Stanford, which has lost five games in a row for the first time under coach David Shaw.

Freshman Ari Patu struggled to get the Cardinal’s passing game going in his first career start, completing seven of 14 for 51 yards with a touchdown and interception before leaving midway through the third quarter because of an undisclosed injury. Stanford used three quarterbacks in the game.

Jalon Daniels hit Jared Casey on a scrambling pass for a two-point conversion in overtime, and the Jayhawks (2-8, 1-6 Big 12) stunned the Longhorns (4-6, 2-5) to end Kansas’ eight-game losing streak this season and a 56-game skid in Big 12 road games.

Texas had rallied from 21 down in the second half to force overtime on Casey Thompson’s touchdown pass to Cade Brewer with 22 seconds left.


The Longhorns got the ball first in overtime and scored on Marcus Washington’s scoop-and-stretch touchdown catch. But the Jayhawks answered with Devin Neal’s two-yard touchdown run.

First-year Kansas coach Lance Leipold then immediately decided to go for the win, and Jayhawks players stormed onto the field when Daniels found Casey trailing the scrambling quarterback across the middle of the field and the fullback cradled the throw for the score.

“It really says a lot about the young men we have in the locker room,” Leipold said. “They’ve been starving. It’s one win. We have to build on it.”

Texas started 4-1 under first-year coach Steve Sarkisian but has now lost five in a row for the first time since 1956.

Daniels passed for 202 yards and three touchdowns and ran for a score. Neal rushed for 143 yards and three touchdowns for the Jayhawks, who hadn’t won a road game in the Big 12 since 2008. The Jayhawks defense forced four Texas turnovers.


Thompson finished with 358 yards passing with six touchdowns for the Longhorns, who must win their final two games to become bowl eligible.

Jonathan Garibay kicked a 62-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the Red Raiders (6-4, 3-4 Big 12) to a victory over the Cyclones (6-4, 4-3) after Texas Tech squandered a 17-point lead in the second half.

Garibay sprinted across the field with his helmet off as fans stormed the field to celebrate the walk-off win after the longest field goal in the FBS this season, surpassing a 60-yarder by Oregon State’s Everett Hayes last week.

The senior from California broke the Texas Tech record of 57 yards by Blade Adams against Texas A&M in 1977.


The Cyclones had pulled even on Andrew Mevis’ 29-yard kick with a minute remaining before redshirt freshman Donovan Smith, making his first career start, got the Red Raiders just far enough to set up Garibay, whose previous career long was 48 yards.

Garibay has made 12 of 12 field-goal attempts this season.

The Red Raiders won for the first time under interim coach Sonny Cumbie in his second game. Texas Tech earned bowl eligibility.
