COLLEGE FOOTBALL ROUNDUP: No. 4 Notre Dame uses triple OT to beat Pittsburgh 29-26

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Everett Golson scored on a quarterback sneak in the third overtime and threw two touchdown passes during Notre Dame's fourth-quarter comeback in Saturday's 29-26 win.

Notre Dame (9-0) won despite Ray Graham rushing for 172 yards for Pitt (4-5), which missed a potential game-winning field goal in overtime.

Golson threw an 11-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth. Notre Dame's chances for a comeback appeared to end when Pitt's K'Waun Williams intercepted Golson in the end zone.

But the Irish defense held and Golson completed a 45-yard pass to DaVaris Daniels at the Pitt 5. Golson then threw a 5-yard TD pass and ran in the two-point conversion to tie the game.

No. 6 OHIO ST. 52, ILLINOIS 22

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Carlos Hyde rushed for 137 yards and three touchdowns, and Braxton Miller passed for two scores and ran for another to lead Ohio State past Illinois.

The Buckeyes (10-0, 6-0 Big Ten) maintained the upper hand in the Leaders Division heading into a bye week. They have games remaining at Wisconsin on Nov. 17 and against rival Michigan at home a week later.

Miller, considered a Heisman Trophy hopeful, had 18 carries for 73 yards and completed 12 of 20 passes for 226 yards.

No. 8 FLORIDA 14, MISSOURI 7

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Mike Gillislee took a screen pass and went 45 yards for a touchdown, and Florida survived a scare to beat Southeastern Conference newcomer Missouri.

The Gators kept alive their hopes of winning the SEC's Eastern Division.

Florida (8-1, 7-1) was shut out in the first half, managing just 111 yards and failing to contain Missouri quarterback James Franklin. The Gators played considerably better in the second half, turning two short fields into touchdowns, with Omarius Hines scoring on a 36-yard jet sweep to tie the game in the third before Gillislee put Florida ahead for good in the fourth.

No. 12 LOUISVILLE 45, TEMPLE 17

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Teddy Bridgewater threw a career-high five touchdowns and Louisville rallied again to beat Temple.

The Cardinals (9-0, 4-0 Big East) fell behind for the sixth straight game, but Louisville scored on five of its first six possessions to take a 31-17 halftime lead. The Cardinals, off to their best start in school history, moved into a first-place tie with Rutgers.

Bridgewater completed 19 of 28 passes for 324 yards, a week after he threw for a career-best 416 yards against Cincinnati.

No. 14 OKLAHOMA 35, IOWA ST. 20

AMES, Iowa -- Landry Jones threw for 405 yards and a season-best four touchdowns and Oklahoma beat Iowa State to move coach Bob Stoops into a second-place tie with Bud Wilkinson on the Sooners' career win list.

Stoops got his 145th win and is 12 shy of tying Barry Switzer for most in school history.

Brennan Clay ran for 157 yards as the Sooners bounced back from a loss to Notre Dame. Oklahoma (6-2, 4-1 Big 12) has won 20 straight following a defeat in the regular season.

Steele Jantz threw for 191 yards for Iowa State (5-4, 2-4). The Cyclones lost their 21st straight home game against the Sooners, a stretch of futility that dates back 52 years.

No. 15 STANFORD 48, COLORADO 0

BOULDER, Colo. -- Kevin Hogan ignited Stanford's sputtering offense and helped the Cardinal hand Colorado its first shutout at home in 26 years.

Hogan picked apart the nation's worst defense, throwing for 184 yards and running for 48 more in just two quarters of work, and the Buffaloes were powerless to respond, gaining 76 yards of offense behind a trio of overwhelmed quarterbacks.

The Cardinal (7-2, 5-1 Pac-12) handed the Buffs (1-8, 1-5) their first shutout at Folsom Field since a 28-0 loss to Oklahoma on Nov. 15, 1986, snapping a streak of 150 straight games in which the Buffs had scored at home.

No. 16 TEXAS A&M 38, NO. 17 MISSISSIPPI ST. 13

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Johnny Manziel threw for 311 yards and ran for 129 yards and two touchdowns, leading Texas A&M to a win over Mississippi State.

The SEC's leading rusher added an 8-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

TEXAS 31, No. 20 TEXAS TECH 21

LUBBOCK, Texas -- David Ash threw for 264 yards and three touchdowns to lead Texas past Texas Tech for its third straight win.

Mike Davis had a career-high 165 yards on four catches, one a 75-yarder from Ash in the second quarter for the Longhorns (7-2, 4-2), who remain alive in the Big 12 race. Freshman Johnathan Gray had 106 yards on 20 carries for Texas.

Seth Doege threw for 329 yards and a touchdown for Texas Tech (6-3, 3-3), which was badly hurt by penalties, including a touchdown being called back in the fourth quarter for holding.

No. 21 NEBRASKA 28, MICHIGAN ST. 24

EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Taylor Martinez threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner with 6 seconds left and Nebraska remained tied with Michigan atop the Big Ten Legends Division.

The Cornhuskers (7-2, 4-1) scored two touchdowns in the final 7:02 to erase a 24-14 deficit. The winning score was set up by a pass interference call in the end zone on Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard, which gave Nebraska the ball at the 5.

Le'Veon Bell ran for 188 yards and two touchdowns for the Spartans (5-5, 2-4).

No. 22 LOUISIANA TECH 51, UTSA 27

RUSTON, La. -- Kenneth Dixon scored three touchdowns and Louisiana Tech pulled away from Texas-San Antonio in the fourth quarter.

The Bulldogs (8-1, 3-0 WAC) converted a fake field goal attempt into a touchdown midway through the fourth. Tech won a record ninth consecutive WAC game on homecoming and the Bulldogs appear headed for a school-record third consecutive week ranked in the Top 25.

UTSA (5-4, 1-3) dropped its fourth in a row after opening the season with five straight victories. It was the Roadrunners' first game against a nationally-ranked FCS foe.

TCU 39, No. 23 WEST VIRGINIA 38, 2OT

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Corey Fuller caught a 25-yard touchdown pass and Trevone Boykin threw to Josh Boyce for the 2-point conversion, lifting TCU over West Virginia.

TCU (6-3, 3-3 Big 12) got the victory after West Virginia (5-3, 2-3) went ahead on Geno Smith's 25-yard TD pass to Stedman Bailey in the second overtime.

On TCU's possession, Boykin handed off to B.J. Catalon and he pitched to Brandon Carter, who threw to Fuller in the end zone. Boyce then caught the 2-point conversion.

Vanderbilt 40, Kentucky 0

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Vanderbilt dominated Kentucky on offense, defense and special teams Saturday to jump to a 27-point halftime lead and coast to a 40-0 win.

Daren Bates returned a fumble for a 62-yard touchdown for the Tigers (2-7), who picked up a much-needed win in the program's worst start in 60 years with games against No. 7 Georgia and No. 1 Alabama looming. It was Auburn's longest fumble return for a score since 1969.

TENNESSEE 55, TROY 48

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Marlin Lane rushed for a tiebreaking 9-yard touchdown with 1:25 remaining Saturday as Tennessee rallied to edge Troy 55-48 in a game that featured 1,439 combined yards in total offense, the most ever in a Tennessee football game.

Tennessee (4-5) gained 718 yards, the most in school history. Troy compiled 721 yards, the most ever by a Tennessee opponent.

Justin Hunter caught nine passes for 181 yards and three touchdowns, including a 46-yarder that tied the game with 2:54 remaining. Hunter's third touchdown came just 20 seconds after Eric Thomas had put Troy ahead with a 67-yard reception, his second touchdown.

Tennessee's Tyler Bray went 29-of-47 for 530 yards and five touchdowns, setting career highs in the latter two categories. Cordarrelle Patterson caught nine passes for 219 yards and a touchdown.

VIRGINIA 33, N.C. STATE 6

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Phillip Sims ran for one touchdown and threw for another, and Virginia routed North Carolina State 33-6 on Saturday to snap a six-game losing streak.

Kevin Parks rushed for 115 yards and a late 31-yard touchdown for the Cavaliers (3-6, 1-4 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Their defense more than doubled its season total for takeaways with five while holding N.C. State to 19 yards rushing, and their offense rolled up 446 total yards to lead Virginia to its first ACC win.

WAKE FOREST 28, BOSTON COLLEGE 14

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Michael Campanaro wasn't even sure he'd be able to play when he woke up Saturday morning after spending the previous two days in an air cast with a sprained ankle.

Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe is glad his junior receiver toughed it out.

Campanaro caught three first-half touchdown passes from Tanner Price and the Demon Deacons took a step closer to becoming bowl eligible with a 28-14 win over Boston College.

Campanaro also tied an Atlantic Coast Conference record with 16 receptions and finished with 123 yards while becoming only the eighth player in school history to catch three TD passes in a game.
