If both Stanford and Oregon finish with wins in their final games next weekend, both will finish with one conference loss, which means Stanford will win the head-to-head matchup and go to the Pac-12 championship game for a chance to play in the Rose Bowl.

NO. 6 OHIO STATE 21, WISCONSIN 14

In Madison, Wis., Carlos Hyde scored on a 2-yard run in overtime and the Buckeyes stayed perfect.

The Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0) clinched the Leaders Division title outright with the win. But they are ineligible for the postseason as part of their punishment for NCAA violations under former coach Jim Tressel.

NO. 13 OKLAHOMA 50, WEST VIRGINIA 49

In Morgantown, W.Va., Landry Jones threw six touchdown passes, including a 5-yarder to Kenny Stills with 24 seconds left, to lift Oklahoma to a wild win over West Virginia.

Jones finished with 554 passing yards to break his own school record.

NO. 16 NEBRASKA 38, MINNESOTA 14

In Lincoln, Neb., Taylor Martinez threw for 308 yards and two touchdowns to Kenny Bell while becoming Nebraska’s career passing leader.

The Cornhuskers (9-2, 6-1) can clinch the Legends Division title – and a berth in the conference championship game against Wisconsin on Dec. 1 – with a win at Iowa on Friday or a Michigan loss at Ohio State Saturday.

NO. 17 UCLA 38, NO. 21 SOUTHERN CAL 28

In Pasadena, Calif., Brett Hundley passed for 234 yards and a touchdown and rushed for two more scores as UCLA clinched the Pac-12 South title and snapped a five-game losing streak in the crosstown rivalry.

UTAH STATE 48, NO. 19 LOUISIANA TECH 41 (OT)
