Iowa State pops huge upset at 3rd-ranked Oklahoma

  • Offensive famine leads to an Iowa State loss

Iowa State's gritty 38-31 win at Oklahoma and Michigan State's hard-earned 14-10 win in a downpour at Michigan sent the traditional powers south in my ballot for this week's Associated Press poll. The Cyclones had yet to beat a Power-5 team, but they'd given Iowa and Texas a run for their money so far.

NOTES: Iowa State LB/QB Joel Lanning became the first Cyclones player since Dave McCurry in 1971 to play significant snaps on both sides of the ball.

NO. 8 TCU 31, NO. 23 WEST VIRGINIA 24 - At 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. He gained 204 yards on 28 carries, and he also scored three touchdowns.

The lack of experience didn't matter, as Kempt completed 18 of 24 passes for 343 yards with three touchdowns.

The Big Ten East Division is the best in college football.

Ohio State (5-1, 3-0 Big Ten) overwhelmed quarterback Max Bortenschlager, holding the Terrapins to 16 passing yards and only six first downs.

MICHIGAN STATE 14, NO. 7 MICHIGAN 10 - At Ann Arbor, Mich., Brian Lewerke ran for a touchdown and threw for a score in the first half and Michigan State held on to beat Michigan.

Somehow, two years after Michigan State beat Michigan on a haunting fumbled punt snap and ensuing, impossible return, it beat Michigan 14-10 by making zero turnovers while the hosts made five.

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). Will Grier threw for 366 yards and three TDs for No. 23 WVU. Park, who began his career at Georgia before transferring to two small schools and eventually to Iowa State, threw three interceptions in the Cyclones' last game, a 17-7 home loss to Texas on September 28. 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. Barrett was 20-for-31 for 261 yards in almost three quarters. And Oklahoma's nation-best 18-game winning streak is now history, along with its top-shelf shot at securing a spot in the CFP final four.


The Gators got on the scoreboard with Eddy Pineiro's 25-yard field goal in the second quarter against LSU.

Baker Mayfield just did a victory lap around The Horseshoe and planted the OU flag at midfield. Wow. In Week 2, the Cyclones lost 44-41 to Iowa.

Miami moved up two spots to No. 11 after beating Florida State. But it was a stake through the heart of the Sooners - and perhaps the Big 12 Conference. Jones, who had 79 yards rushing and two receptions for 17 yards, scored a touchdown from scrimmage in his 12th straight game. Virginia Tech 16. Notre Dame 17.

Notre Dame 33, North Carolina 10: Josh Adams ran for 118 yards, including a 73-yard touchdown dash for No. 21 Notre Dame.

Johnson is not playing at full strength, as he has been nursing a hamstring injury.

It's only the first week of October, but here are four storylines that will take shape down the line.

No. 6 TCU (5-0) is the highest-ranked Big 12 school in the AP poll.

Storms moved in with 4 seconds left in the third quarter and the game was called after a one-hour delay with more rain on the way.
