Cyclones hand No. 3 Sooners first loss

Sue Ogrocki/Associated Press Iowa State receiver Allen Lazard catches the game-winning pass from Kyle Kempt with 2:19 left to beat Oklahoma. Kempt had thrown just two passes in his career before playing Saturday.

NORMAN, OKLA. — Kyle Kempt passed for 343 yards and three touchdowns, including a 25-yarder to Allen Lazard that put Iowa State ahead with 2:19 left in the fourth quarter as the Cyclones stunned No. 3 Oklahoma 38-31 on Saturday.

 

The loss snapped Oklahoma’s nation-leading 14-game win streak and the Sooners’ 18-game winning streak against the Cyclones that dated to 1990. It was just Iowa State’s second victory against Oklahoma since 1961 and the Cyclones (3-2, 1-1 Big 12) did it without their starting quarterback.

Kempt, a senior, had thrown just two passes in his career before Saturday’s contest. He played because regular starter Jacob Park went on leave for undisclosed personal medical reasons late this week.

No. 4 Penn State 31, Northwestern 7

In Evanston, Ill., Trace McSorley threw for 245 yards and a touchdown, Saquon Barkley ran for two scores in the second half, and Penn State (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) beat Northwestern (2-3, 0-2).

McSorley completed 25 of 34 passes. He threw a 10-yard touchdown to backup quarterback Tommy Stevens in the second quarter and added a 5-yard TD run in the fourth.

Barkley finished with 75 yards rushing after being held to minus-1 in the first half.

No. 8 TCU 31, No. 23 West Virginia 24

In Fort Worth, Texas, Kenny Hill avoided a defender in the backfield and lunged forward through two more for a 3-yard touchdown run with 2:53 left and TCU remained the Big 12’s only undefeated team with a victory over West Virginia.

Hill also threw a 45-yard touchdown pass and was on the receiving end of a 48-yard score for the Frogs (5-0, 2-0). His winning TD run came only five plays after an apparent interception was reversed on a replay review.

No. 10 Ohio State 62, Maryland 14

In Columbus, Ohio, J.T. Barrett threw for three touchdowns and ran for another in the first half, and Ohio State had its most dominant defensive effort in nearly 60 years, routing Maryland .

The stingy Buckeyes held Maryland (3-2, 1-1 Big Ten) to 66 total yards – their fewest yards allowed since yielding 60 against Indiana in 1960.

Ohio State (5-1, 3-0 Big Ten) overwhelmed quarterback Max Bortenschlager, holding the Terrapins to 16 passing yards and only six first downs. Bortenschlager, who was promoted to a starting role after injuries to the Terrapin’s top two QBs, was only 3-of-12 passing.

No. 14 Southern Cal 38, Oregon State 10

In Los Angeles, Sam Darnold threw for 328 yards and three touchdowns, Ronald Jones II rushed for one touchdown and Southern California defeated Oregon State.

Wide receiver Tyler Vaughns and tight end Josh Falo each caught their first career touchdown reception from Darnold as the Trojans (5-1, 3-1 Pac-12) were workmanlike in bouncing back from last week’s 30-27 loss at No. 11 Washington State.

Jones, who had 79 yards rushing and two receptions for 17 yards, scored a touchdown from scrimmage in his 12th straight game.

Western Michigan 71, Buffalo 68 (7OT)

In Buffalo, N.Y., Jarvion Franklin ran in from the 12 to give Western Michigan a victory over Buffalo in a record-tying seven overtimes with a record-breaking 139 total points.

Buffalo had just converted on a 25-yard field goal to open the door for the Broncos who scored in just four plays. This was the fourth game in FBS history to go into seven overtimes.

The Syracuse-Pittsburgh game (Nov. 26, 2016) had a total of 137 points.

Missed, made and blocked field goals made the difference in this game. Buffalo’s Adam Mitcheson nailed a 34-yarder to tie the game at 31 with 34 seconds left in regulation. Western Michigan’s Josh Grant attempted a 52-yarder as time expired but Jarrett Franklin blocked it. Grant also missed a 29-yard attempt that would have been a game winner in the third overtime.

Both teams failed on the 2-point attempt to end the sixth OT.

Steven Clark recovered a Buffalo fumble in the third overtime but the Broncos failed to capitalize when Grant missed his 29-yarder.

Jon Wassink threw for 5 TDs and Franklin ran for 176 yards and three scores for Western Michigan (4-2, 2-0 MAC).

Drew Anderson threw for 597 yards, a Buffalo (3-3, 1-1) record, with seven TD passes and a touchdown run. The Bulls set the FBS record for the most points in a losing effort.
