    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Hassan Haskins scored five touchdowns, Aidan Hutchinson had three sacks and No. 6 Michigan beat No. 2 Ohio State 42-27 on Saturday to give Jim Harbaugh his first coaching victory over the Buckeyes. The Wolverines (11-1, 8-1, No. 5 CFP) won the Big Ten East and will play in the conference title game next week with playoff hopes in hand after snapping an eight-game losing streak to Ohio State (10-2, 8-1) . Michigan advanced to the conference championship for the first time. The Wolverines have a chance to win a Big Ten title for the first time since 2004 and a national championship for the first time since 1997. Ohio State had a school-record winning streak in the rivalry, taking 15 of 16 to turn The Game into its game. The Buckeyes blew their chances to continue their dominance with 10 penalties, many before the snap, and because they simply could not stop Michigan’s running game. Haskins had 169 yards rushing on 28 carries, scoring a go-ahead touchdown late in the second half and...
    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Devin Leary threw two touchdown passes in a 26-second span, with No. 24 North Carolina State recovering an onside kick in between, to stun North Carolina 34-30 on Friday night and remain alive in the ACC Atlantic Division title chase. With N.C. State down 30-21, Leary found Emeka Emezie on a busted coverage for a 64-yard touchdown strike with 1:33 left. The Wolfpack recovered the onside kick, then Leary threw a 24-yard sideline pass to Emezie with 1:09 remaining. N.C. State (9-3, 6-2) beat North Carolina (6-6, 3-5) for the first time since 2018 to remain in contention for a trip to the conference championship game. It also officially eliminated six-time reigning league champion Clemson from the Atlantic Division race. The Wolfpack would reach the title game if No. 21 Wake Forest loses at Boston College on Saturday, creating a three-way tie atop the division that would favor N.C. State by virtue of its division record and head-to-head win over Clemson. Leary finished with 247 passing yards and four touchdowns. Sam Howell had...
    Been getting some emails of late suggesting I’ve been sleeping on Chargers second-year quarterback Justin Herbert. Based on visual evidence gathered in the Chargers 41-37 win Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers, I’m now wide awake. Herbert had a spectacular statistical season as a rookie and was good from the moment he became the surprise starter in Week 2 when Tyrod Taylor experienced chest pains before a game against Kansas City Chiefs. The Chargers, however, finished 7-9 and head coach Anthony Lynn was shown the door along with offensive coordinator Shane Steichen as well as influential quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton. Changing systems after a rookie year is never ideal, but under rookie coach Brandon Staley and offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, Herbert has taken the next step. It was all on display Sunday night. The Chargers even did something they rarely do — they gave up a late lead and then got it back, courtesy of Herbert. So Herbert goes to No. 1 entering Week 12 games. Here’s how it shakes out: 1....
    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — C.J. Stroud threw for six touchdowns and nearly 400 yards in the first half and No. 5 Ohio State made it look easy in a 56-7 blowout of No. 7 Michigan State on Saturday. Stroud finished 32 for 35 against the Spartans’ sketchy pass defense, which had allowed more yards through the air than any in major college football, Michigan State’s Kenneth Walker III, the nation’s leading rusher, was turned into a nonfactor by the Buckeyes. Walker had six carries for 25 yards. By the time Stroud took a seat late in the third quarter, the redshirt freshman piled up 432 yards for the Buckeyes (10-1, 8-0 Big Ten, CFP No. 4), who polished their College Football Playoff resume and served warning to No. 8 Michigan ahead of the rivalry game next week that will determine the Big Ten East title. The Buckeyes’ top three receivers all eclipsed the 100-yard mark and caught touchdown passes. Chris Olave had seven catches for 140 yards and two touchdowns. Garrett Wilson grabbed seven for 126 and a pair of...
    Devin Leary threw for two touchdowns, Zonovan Knight returned a kickoff for a touchdown and No. 25 North Carolina State beat Syracuse 41-17 on Saturday to keep its hopes alive for an Atlantic Coast Conference championship. After neither team scored in the first 22 minutes, the Wolfpack scored touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams in a matter of less than 3 1/2 minutes. It was all part of N.C. State’s 28-point burst in the last 6:14 of the first half. By the time the game began, N.C. State (8-3, 5-2, No. 20 CFP) had retained a shot at reaching the ACC championship game because Atlantic Division-leading Wake Forest lost at Clemson. In order to go to Charlotte for the league title game Dec. 4, the Wolfpack must defeat North Carolina on Friday followed by a Wake Forest loss the next day at Boston College.

    Jack Coan threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns in a little more than a half and No. 6 Notre Dame had two defensive touchdowns in winning its sixth straight game, 55-0 over beleaguered Georgia Tech on Saturday. Coan, a grad transfer from Wisconsin, completed 15 of 20 passes. He had first-half touchdown strikes of 52 yards to Michael Mayer and 20 yards to Logan Diggs as the Irish took a 45-0 halftime. Coan exited after one series in the third quarter and was replaced by true freshman Tyler Buchner, who ripped off a 68-yard run on his first play. With Coan directing the offense, and the Irish defense hounding Georgia Tech quarterback Jordan Yates all afternoon, coach Brian Kelly’s Fighting Irish (CFP No. 8) improved to 10-1, reaching the 10-win level for the fifth straight season by outgaining coach Geoff Collins’ Yellow Jackets (3-8) by a 514-224 yardage margin.

    WACO, Texas (AP) — Gerry Bohanon threw a touchdown pass and ran for two scores, Baylor’s defense constantly pressured Caleb Williams and Spencer Rattler and the No. 18 Bears beat No. 4 Oklahoma 27-14 on Saturday to end the Sooners’ nation’s-best 17-game winning streak. Abram Smith had 148 yards rushing, including a 75-yard scamper to set up the first of Bohanon’s two rushing TDs in the fourth quarter, and the Bears (8-2, 5-2 Big 12, CFP No. 13) rebounded from an unexpected loss last week at struggling TCU. The Sooners (9-1, 6-1, CFP No. 8) were held to 260 total yards, their fewest ever for Lincoln Riley in his five seasons as head coach and two seasons as offensive coordinator before that. Baylor fans stormed the field when they thought 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 defense returned...
    AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Will Rogers threw for 415 yards and six touchdowns, and Mississippi State beat No. 16 Auburn 43-34 on Saturday. Auburn (6-4, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) scored touchdowns on its first four possessions and led 28-3 midway through the second quarter. But Mississippi State (6-4, 4-3) rallied, scoring 40 unanswered points behind Rogers’ arm. Rogers completed 44 of 54 passes, connecting with 10 different Bulldogs. Jaden Walley had seven catches for 87 yards, and Jakai Polk finished with 61 yards and two touchdowns on 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 after halftime, the Tigers were held to 158 yards and six points in the second half. THE TAKEAWAY Mississippi State: Heading into Saturday, the Bulldogs had only lost one game by more than three points all season. The comeback win showed Mississippi State is truly never out of its games, thanks to Mike Leach’s Air Raid offense. It is now...
    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Bryce Young passed for 270 yards and five touchdowns, including three to Jameson Williams, and No. 3 Alabama beat New Mexico State 59-3 on Saturday. Young completed 21 of 23 passes in just over a half and the Crimson Tide (9-1, No. 2 CFP) 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). Young became the first Alabama quarterback to complete his first 13 passes in a game, playing only one drive into the second half when he lost a fumble in New Mexico State territory. The Aggies just couldn’t keep up with the speedy Williams, who caught six passes for 158 yards. He had touchdowns of 50, 32 and 7 yards and had a fourth called back because he stepped out of bounds. Brian Robinson Jr. ran for 99 yards and two touchdowns, all in the first half. Jonah Johnson completed 19 of 30 passes for 129 yards for New Mexico State, which...
    Southern Miss (1-8, 0-5 Conference USA) at No. 15 UTSA (9-0, 5-0, No. 23 CFP), Saturday at 3:30 p.m. EST (ESPN+). Line: UTSA by 33 1/2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Series record: Southern Miss leads 4-3. WHAT’S AT STAKE? UTSA’s historic season can continue with a victory. The Roadrunners received the first national ranking in the program’s 10-year history on Oct. 17, entering the AP Top 25 at No. 24. On Monday, they entered the College Football Playoff rankings for the first time. Southern Miss needs to win at least once in its final three games to avoid its worst season since going 1-11 in 2013. KEY MATCHUP UTSA has one of the nation’s leading rushers in Sincere McCormick, but its passing game has become a huge weapon. Senior quarterback Frank Harris has completed 173-of-254 passes for 2,079 yards and 18 touchdowns. Southern Miss has allowed opponents to pass for 18 touchdowns and 80 first downs. Opponents are also averaging 8 yards per reception against the Golden Eagles. PLAYERS TO WATCH Southern Miss: DL Josh Carr Jr. has been...
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers are in meetings with free agent Cam Newton to discuss the possibility of the quarterback returning to the franchise that drafted him No. 1 overall in 2011, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because no deal is imminent. The Panthers are light on quarterbacks after starter Sam Darnold suffered an incomplete fracture of his shoulder blade in last week’s 24-6 loss to the New England Patriots. Panthers coach Matt Rhule said Wednesday that P.J. Walker is expected to start on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Matt Barkley, signed off the Tennessee Titans practice squad, is slated to be his backup. Rhule also said Wednesday the team would “continue to explore all options” at quarterback. When asked specifically at the time about Newton, Rhule said he “didn’t want to discuss hypotheticals” and said his focus is entirely on the players are on the roster. Newton has struggled in recent years to get back to the playing level that earned...
    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville had the better Josh Allen on this Sunday, with the standout linebacker intercepting a pass, making a sack and recovering a fumble in a 9-6 upset of the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo’s star quarterback with the same first and last names turned over the ball three times, including twice in the second half. He didn’t have a second-half turnover in any previous game this season. The Bills (5-3) lost for the second time in seven games. The Jaguars (2-6) rebounded from a debacle at Seattle a week ago. Buffalo’s Allen completed 31 of 47 passes for 264 yards, with the two interceptions and a fumble. The first of two deciding moments came on a third-and-2 play at the Jaguars 37 with about 5 1-2 minutes remaining. Allen fumbled after getting pressured by Dawuane Smoot. The other Josh Allen recovered. Buffalo got the ball back in the waning minutes and advanced to the Jaguars 39. But Smoot sacked Allen on third down. It was Jacksonville’s fourth sack of the day. Allen got the first one. It...
    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Ty Chandler ran for career highs of 213 yards and four touchdowns and North Carolina overcame an 18-point deficit to beat No. 10 Wake Forest 58-55 on Saturday, handing the Demon Deacons their first loss in a nonconference matchup of instate Atlantic Coast Conference teams. Chandler’s big day included a 50-yard breakaway run with 1:12 left. That was the final blow for the Tar Heels (5-4) as they rallied from a huge third-quarter deficit to beat the Demon Deacons (8-1, No. 9 CFP) for the second straight year, following a 21-point comeback last year by erasing a 45-27 deficit with 7:38 left in the third. The loss doesn’t impact the Demon Deacons’ pursuit of their first ACC title since 2006 since it was part of a home-and-home nonconference series announced in 2015 with the schools not playing each other as often amid the expanded ACC’s scheduling model. But it likely ends their hopes of climbing deeper into the College Football Playoff race, even if they win out in league play and win the ACC championship...
    LSU (4-4, 2-3 SEC) at No. 3 Alabama (7-1, 4-1, No. 2 CFP), Saturday at 7 p.m. EDT (ESPN). Line: Alabama by 29 1/2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Series record: Alabama leads 54-26-5. WHAT’S AT STAKE? Alabama is trying to continue marching toward the Southeastern Conference championship game and a potential College Football Playoff berth. LSU is trying to finish coach Ed Orgeron’s final season strong — and there wouldn’t be much bigger than a season-spoiling win over the SEC West rival. KEY MATCHUP Alabama QB Bryce Young, the Heisman Trophy front-runner, takes on a defense that has struggled against the pass. Young is tied for fourth in passing touchdowns with Pittsburgh’s Kenny Pickett, and he’s fifth in passing efficiency (177.1). The Tigers rank 87th in pass defense, giving up an average of 242.5 yards per game. They have an injury-depleted secondary, with both starting cornerbacks out and neither normal starter at safety expected to play. PLAYERS TO WATCH LSU: RB Tyrion Davis-Price likely needs a solid game to help the Tigers remain competitive. He had a huge game...
    Tulsa (3-5, 2-2 AAC) at No. 2 Cincinnati (8-0, 4-0, No. 6 CFP), Saturday at 3:30 EDT (ESPN). Line: Cincinnati by 23 1/2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Series record: Tulsa leads 17-16-2. WHAT’S AT STAKE? Cincinnati was ranked No. 6 in the initial College Football Playoff rankings despite a signature win at No. 10 Notre Dame. The Bearcats feel like they have something to prove, and that starts Saturday against Tulsa. Cincinnati insists that winning an American Conference championship is the top goal. Tulsa, meanwhile, will be looking to exact some revenge after losing to the Bearcats on a last-second field goal in last year’s American Conference championship game. KEY MATCHUP Cincinnati has one of the nation’s top pass defenses, ranking first in opponent completion percentage (50.8) with 14 interceptions. Tulsa quarterback Davis Brin completes close to 58% of his passes, but he also has 11 interceptions. Limiting mistakes will be key for Brin if Tulsa is going to have success against a talented Bearcats secondary. PLAYERS TO WATCH Tulsa: Brin has passed for 2,095 yards and 11...
    Missouri (4-4, 1-3 SEC) at No. 1 Georgia (8-0, 6-0, No. 1 CFP), Saturday at noon EDT (ESPN). Line: Georgia by 39 ½, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Series record: Georgia leads series 9-1. WHAT’S AT STAKE? Georgia is trying to protect its No. 1 ranking in the AP Top 25 and its top spot in the first College Football Playoff ranking of the season. The Bulldogs won the Southeastern Conference’s Eastern Division and a berth in the SEC championship game with last week’s 34-7 win over Florida. It’s possible Georgia could land in the college football playoff even with a loss, but it is playing to retain control of its championship hopes. KEY MATCHUP Missouri senior running back Tyler Badie vs. Georgia’s run defense. Badie leads the SEC and ranks fourth in the nation with 989 yards rushing and is tied for the league lead with 11 rushing touchdowns. Badie also has 40 receptions for 305 yards and four touchdowns. Georgia, which leads the nation in scoring defense with its average of 6.6 points allowed, ranks...
    A tricky week with some byes and subpar performances, but what Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers did without Davonte Adams and others against the Arizona Cardinals was the most impressive performance of Week 8. How they rank going in to Week 9: 1. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay (at Kansas City) Last week: 2 You won’t see a better “managed” game from a quarterback until the Packers failed to score with 3:23 to left on an ill-fated shotgun pass from Rodgers from the 1 that was batted down. Rodgers was stripped of his receivers, yet controlled the tempo and pace in 24-21 win over previously unbeaten Arizona. 2. Derek Carr, Las Vegas (at NY Giants) Last week: 4 Carr spent at least part of his bye week the way any good dad should — playing whiffle ball in his living room with his at least two of his sons. Assuming the other son and his daughter were somewhere in the cheering section. Raiders in the driver’s seat in AFC West. Who’d a thunk it? 3....
    Mississippi State quarterback Will Rogers could do no wrong Saturday night, setting a Southeastern Conference record for completion percentage to help the Bulldogs steamroll their way to another big victory. The sophomore quarterback completed 92% of his passes — 36 of 39 — which is an SEC record for any game with 30-plus attempts. Dillon Johnson ran for two touchdowns and Mississippi State scored 14 points off of four Kentucky turnovers to beat the No. 12 Wildcats 31-17 on Saturday night. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM The Bulldogs (5-3, 3-2) came up big with three interceptions of Will Levis and a fumble recovery. They turned a third-quarter fumble and pickoff into consecutive touchdowns to put the game out of reach. "I thought it was huge," Mississippi State coach Mike Leach said. "Kentucky is really about control … maintaining control is something we’ve struggled with this year, so those obviously helped." Johnson had scoring runs of 9 and 1 yards and finished with 41 yards rushing on 11 carries. Jo’Quavious Marks rushed for 58 yards and a score....
    Sam Hartman continued his recent tear by accounting for five touchdowns to help No. 13 Wake Forest beat Duke 45-7 on Saturday, giving the Demon Deacons their best start in program history. Hartman threw for 402 yards and three touchdowns, including a 38-yarder to Jaquarii Roberson on the first possession. He also ran for 61 yards and two scores, including a 26-yarder, for the Demon Deacons (8-0, 5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). It came a week after Hartman threw for five touchdowns and ran for a sixth score in a 70-56 victory over Army. That tied this year's team for the best start in program history set in 1944, nine years before the formation of the ACC. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Now Dave Clawson’s bunch owns a new milestone in what is becoming a special season for the league-leading Demon Deacons.

    EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Kenneth Walker ran for 197 yards and five touchdowns, helping No. 8 Michigan State top No. 6 Michigan 37-33 in a thrilling comeback victory Saturday. The Spartans (8-0, 5-0 Big Ten) trailed by nine at halftime and 30-14 with 6:47 left in the third quarter before Walker boosted his chances of winning the Heisman Trophy. Walker’s fifth touchdown — a 23-yard run — lifted the Spartans to a 37-33 lead with 5:08 remaining. The Wolverines (7-1, 4-1) forced a final punt and had the ball at their 33 with 1:15 and no timeouts left. After a roughing-the-passer penalty gave Michigan the ball at midfield, Michigan State cornerback Charles Brantley sealed the victory by picking off a floating pass from Cade McNamara. McNamara threw for 383 yards and two touchdowns, but his interception was costly, as was freshman quarterback J.J. McCarthy’s lost fumble in the fourth quarter. The rivals were on the same field with 7-0 or better records for the first time, matching up as top-10 teams for the first time since 1964. NO....
    No. 19 SMU (7-0, 3-0 American) at Houston (6-1, 4-0), Saturday at 7 p.m. EDT (ESPN2). Line: Houston by 1/2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Series record: Houston leads 21-13-1. WHAT’S AT STAKE? SMU remains undefeated at 7-0 for the second time in three seasons. Houston is on a six-game winning streak and looking for its first 5-0 start in conference play since 2015.

    Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley is an eternal optimist, always seeing potential greatness through his team’s flaws. Even he revealed a tinge of worry after yet another game that was closer than expected. Oklahoma trailed struggling Kansas last week before rallying in the second half to win 35-23. The Sooners still are unbeaten, but they dropped from No. 3 to No. 4 in the AP Top 25 this week. Riley still sees big things ahead, but he wants more out of his veteran leaders when Oklahoma (8-0, 5-0 Big 12) hosts Texas Tech (5-3, 2-3) on Saturday. “We feel like — I don’t have any problem saying it — we feel like there’s a number of older veteran guys on this team right now that need to be at their best, and this team needs them to be better,” Riley said. “And we’ve made that clear.” Riley also has issue with the team’s inconsistent play. At times, the offense, defense and special teams have bailed out the other units. Even with the Sooners on a nation-leading 16-game win streak, he knows...
    Alabama players once again got to light up those celebratory cigars after another win over border rival Tennessee. This one just didn't come quite so easily for the first three-plus quarters. Bryce Young passed for 371 yards and two touchdowns, ran for two more scores and led No. 4 Alabama to a dominant fourth quarter and a 52-24 victory Saturday night over the Volunteers. Brian Robinson ran for 107 yards and three touchdowns, helping the Crimson Tide (7-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) score 21 of their 28 fourth-quarter points in a little over six minutes. "It’s a special rivalry to the Alabama fans and the players so we wanted to just have fun with it while we can," Robinson said. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM That fourth-quarter flurry turned a mostly competitive game against the Volunteers (4-4, 2-3), fueled by Hendon Hooker's 282-yard passing performance, into another lopsided final score. "The offense answered and we kept putting up points," Tide coach Nick Saban said. The result was Alabama's 15th consecutive win in the border rivalry, with the previous...
    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Casey Washington caught a 2-point conversion pass from Brandon Peters to end the first nine-overtime game in NCAA history and lift Illinois over No. 7 Penn State 20-18 on Saturday. The teams were tied at 10 after regulation, exchanged field goals in the first two overtimes, then began to alternate 2-point attempts in the third OT as part of a format tweaked ahead of the season. Neither team converted until the eighth overtime, when Isaiah Williams ran one in to put Illinois (3-5, 2-3 Big Ten) up 18-16. Noah Cain kept the it alive for Penn State (5-2, 2-2) with a 2-point run of his own. In the ninth OT, Sean Clifford’s pass to Parker Washington was broken up by linebacker Khalan Tolson. Peters then found Washington near the back of the end zone for the winning completion. The 2-point conversion shootout started in 2019, the season after LSU and Texas A&M played a seven overtime game that left both teams badly beaten up. The rule was tweaked this year, with the 2-point conversion...

    Another new No. 1 this week in the NFL QB power rankings . . . let’s get to it: 1. Dak Prescott, Dallas (bye) Last week: 8 Pretty much an unstoppable force in 35-29 win over Patriots, completing 36 of 51 passes for 445 yards, three touchdowns, one interception. This game had all the earmarks of an upset loss and Prescott pulled it out with help from CeeDee Lamb (9 receptions, 149 yards, 2 TDs). Been underrating him all season. Not this time. Calf injury could affect this week’s status. 2. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay (Washington) Last week: 3 A 24-14 win over the Bears was one of those games where it seemed as if Rodgers was carrying his opponent until taking over when appropriate. Was 17 of 23 for 195 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. 3. Tom Brady, Tampa Bay (vs. Chicago) Last week: 1 An un-Brady like performance in 28-22 win over Eagles in that the Buccaneers had a 28-7 lead and he didn’t put the game away earlier. Was 34...
    Caleb Williams had a big starting debut for No. 4 Oklahoma, throwing for 295 yards and four touchdowns and running for another score in the Sooners’ 52-31 victory over TCU on Saturday night. The freshman from Washington, D.C., unseated Spencer Rattler as the starter after leading a comeback victory over Texas last week in Dallas. He started fast against TCU with an opening 75-yard touchdown drive that took just under three minutes. Williams didn’t learn he was Oklahoma’s starter until midweek. Riley said he was ready to play either of his former blue-chip quarterbacks, if necessary, against TCU. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "Caleb got the opportunity tonight, and obviously did a great job with it," Riley said. "I’m confident that had Spencer gotten the opportunity tonight with the way he practiced, he would’ve played very well also. Thought the room handled it great. Proud of those guys for a winning effort and being team-first guys." Williams was 18 of 23 and ran for 66 yards on nine carries. He had a 41-yard scoring run, juking a...
    20 excellent podcasts for listeners who love a good story 17 Tips To Live Comfortably Off Just a Social Security Check It feels safe to say that the move from Spencer Rattler to Caleb Williams was the right one for Oklahoma. Sooners coach Lincoln Riley made the switch from Rattler to Williams, the five-star true freshman, midway through last week’s game against Texas. All Williams did was lead a ferocious come-from-behind victory in one of the sport’s biggest rivalries. Riley wouldn’t announce it, but we all knew it would be Williams at quarterback when the fourth-ranked Sooners hosted TCU on Saturday night. And in his first college start, Williams did not disappoint. In a 52-31 victory, Williams completed 18-of-23 passes for 295 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing for 66 yards and a score. TCU’s defense is not good, but the Oklahoma offense has looked so much more explosive with Williams at quarterback. The Sooners looked locked in from the jump.

    DALLAS (AP) — Kennedy Brooks ran for 217 yards and two go-ahead touchdowns in the fourth quarter, including a 33-yard romp with 3 seconds left, as sixth-ranked Oklahoma beat No. 21 Texas 55-48 on Saturday in the Red River rivalry that will soon move to the Southeastern Conference. The Sooners (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) appeared to be trying to set up for a game-ending field goal when Brooks instead broke free for a sprint to the end zone to stun the sellout crowd at 92,100-seat Cotton Bowl Stadium. Oklahoma hadn’t led until Brooks had an 18-yard score with 7:10 left that made it 48-41. His rush was the first play from scrimmage after OU tied the game and kicked off to Xavier Worthy, who had the ball stripped away by Caleb Kelly.

    Guess we can forget about Kyler Murray ever giving baseball a shot with the A’s. The ability of Murray as a downfield passer and creative runner has the Arizona Cardinals as the lone unbeaten quarterback in the NFL entering Week 5 after a 37-20 destruction of the Los Angeles Rams and last week’s No. 1 Matt Stafford. Once upon a time, Murray was the No. 9 overall pick of the MLB draft in by the A’s in 2018 in hopes of finding the next Rickey Henderson. He even came to the Coliseum, took batting practice and met with the media.

    Michelle Young Returns to Social Media After Bachelorette Season 18 Wraps 5 Major Money Mistakes To Avoid Once You Turn 60 Tee Higgins wants to be Tee Higgins.  He does not want to be the second coming of Chad Johnson — errr, Chad Ochocino. So he's dropping Johnson's No. 85. The second-year Cincinnati Bengals receiver told ESPN's Ben Baby on Thursday that he's switching to No. 5 next season to avoid association with the former Bengals receiver with a penchant for making headlines on and off the field.  "I keep seeing on Twitter, 'Ochocinco 2.0,'" Higgins told Baby. "I don't want to be a 2.0. No disrespect to Chad. He's a great receiver, this and that.  "I just don't want to be a 2.0 for myself, man. I want to be Tee Higgins, 1.0, No. 5."

    Stony Brook (1-1) at No. 4 Oregon (2-0), Saturday at 7:30 p.m. EDT (Pac-12 Network). Line: No line, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Series record: First meeting. WHAT’S AT STAKE? Oregon says the game against Stony Brook is a chance to get better, but mostly it’s an opportunity to rest players who got beat up in last week’s big win over then-No. 3 Ohio State. The Ducks jumped from No. 12 to No. 4 in the AP Top 25 following the win. Even if they sit their usual starters, the Ducks should have an easy time over Stony Brook. The FCS-level Seawolves are coming off a 24-3 victory over Colgate, but just don’t have the size or skill level to match up with Oregon. KEY MATCHUP Stony Brook’s offense against Oregon’s hobbled defense. There’s no word yet on Heisman hopeful Kayvon Thibodeaux’s status for the Ducks, but linebacker Justin Flowe’s injury appears serious and he’s unavailable. Mase Funa and Keith Brown are also nursing minor injuries. The depleted defense could give the Seawolves a chance to get on the board....
    Ole Miss Rebels. Mandatory Credit: Petre Thomas-USA TODAY Sports SEC quarterback rankings after two weeks have Alabama and Ole Miss signal-callers, Bryce Young and Matt Corral, putting up big numbers for their respective squads. After another week of SEC football, there’s been plenty offense from plenty of teams in the SEC. While the conference isn’t traditionally known for having high-powered offenses, it certainly seems like things are a little different right now. That said, not every team is seeing a ton of success on offense. Vanderbilt is a mess and the Texas A&M Aggies only managed to score a single touchdown against the Colorado Buffaloes in a narrow 10-7 win. But, even though some teams throughout the conference are struggling to produce points and yards, there are plenty of others in the SEC who are scoring with ease. So how do the SEC quarterbacks stack up this week? 14 Zach Calzada Texas A&M wasn’t supposed to be playing Zach Calzada and having him lead the offense against Colorado, but the Aggies were forced to bring him out when Haynes King went...

    Reese White was thinking even bigger for No. 17 Coastal Carolina after his strong start to the season. White finished with 102 yards and three rushing touchdowns and the Chanticleers beat Kansas for a third straight year, 49-22, as the fledging FBS program hosted a Power Five team for the first time Friday night. White is a junior who was a backup behind last year's rushing leader, C.J. Marable, during Coastal's breakthrough season in college football's top division. So far, White is filling in very nicely. He had two rushing touchdowns in a 52-14 victory over The Citadel last week and wondered if he couldn't do even better.
