The Spartans (5-1, 2-0 Big Ten) equaled their longest winning streak over their in-state rival.

Michigan (6-1, 2-1) lost for the first time under coach Brady Hoke.

Edwin Baker ran for 167 yards and a touchdown for the Spartans.

Robinson ran for a first-quarter touchdown but was mostly ineffective through the air, going 9 for 24 for 123 yards and a touchdown.

NO. 4 WISCONSIN 59, INDIANA 7

In Madison, Wis., quarterback Russell Wilson added a new chapter to his brief-
but-growing legend, making a touchdown catch on a trick play as Wisconsin routed Indiana.

Wilson, who is being touted as a Heisman Trophy candidate by Wisconsin (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten), added another memorable moment to his career when he caught a 25-yard score from running back Montee Ball in the second quarter. Ball had a huge day, rushing for three touchdowns.

NO. 5 BOISE STATE 63, COLORADO STATE 13

In Fort Collins, Colo., Kellen Moore threw for 338 yards and four touchdowns as Boise State routed Colorado State.

Moore was 26 of 30 passing, Doug Martin ran 20 times for 200 yards and three scores and Tyler Shoemaker caught nine passes for 180 yards and two TDs and added a 36-yard run on a fake punt that led to another score for the Broncos (6-0, 1-0).

NO. 7 STANFORD 44, WASHINGTON STATE 14

In Pullman, Wash., Andrew Luck threw two third-quarter touchdown passes to Levine Toilolo as Stanford beat Washington State to extend the nation’s longest winning streak to a school-record 14 consecutive games.

Stanford (6-0, 4-0 Pac-12) struggled against the Cougars defense before blowing the game open in the second half. Luck, among the leading Heisman Trophy candidates, finished with four touchdown passes, all in the second half.

OHIO STATE 17, NO. 16 ILLINOIS 7

In Champain, Ill., Daniel Herron, who hadn’t played since the Sugar Bowl in January because of NCAA suspensions, ran for 114 yards and a touchdown in his return to lead Ohio State past Illinois.

With true freshman Braxton Miller at quarterback, the struggling offense of Ohio State (4-3, 2-1 Big Ten) counted on Herron against Illinois (6-1, 2-1).

Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase was 20 of 34 for 169 yards, two interceptions and a late TD pass.

NO. 17 KANSAS STATE 41, TEXAS TECH 34

In Lubbock, Texas, Collin Klein ran for three touchdowns and threw for another as Kansas State came from behind to beat Texas Tech.

Klein ran for 110 yards on 23 carries for the Wildcats (6-0, 3-0).

Tyler Lockett returned a kickoff 100 yards early in the second quarter for the Wildcats, who are undefeated after six games for the first time since 2000.

NO. 21 TEXAS A&M 55, NO. 20 BAYLOR 28

In College Station, Texas, Ryan Tannehill threw for 415 yards and a career-high six touchdowns and Ryan Swope caught four of them to lead Texas A&M to a win over Baylor.

The Bears got within six points after a touchdown run by Terrance Ganaway in third quarter before the Aggies scored 21 straight to take a 55-28 lead with about six minutes remaining.

Baylor star quarterback Robert Griffin III threw for a school-record 430 yards and three touchdowns.

PENN STATE 23, PURDUE 18

In State College, Pa., Silas Redd ran for 131 yards and a touchdown and Penn State took advantage of Purdue’s special teams miscues to hold on for a win.
