LOS ANGELES— Kenjon Barner rushed for a school-record 321 yards and five touchdowns, Marcus Mariota threw four TD passes, and No. 2 Oregon produced another landmark offensive performance in a 62-51 victory over No. 18 Southern California on Saturday night.


Josh Huff caught two touchdowns, and De'Anthony Thomas and Daryl Hawkins also caught scoring passes for the Ducks (9-0, 6-0 Pac-12), who outlasted USC in a back-and-forth second half to extend their winning streak to 12 games since the Trojans (6-3, 4-3) won in Eugene last season.


Oregon's 730 yards and 62 points were the most ever allowed by USC, which began playing football in 1888.


Barner set a rushing record for a USC opponent by the third quarter, topping Curtis Enis' 241 yards for Penn State in 1996, and smashed the school record shortly afterward as the Ducks gradually pulled away in their closest game of the year.


TCU 39, West Virginia 38

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 to a 39-38 double overtime win over No. 23 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.


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, which was upheld after review.


TCU rallied from 10 points down to force overtime. Boykin and Boyce teamed up on a 96-yard TD pass play with 1:28 left to tie the score at 31-31. Neither team scored in the first overtime.


Georgia 37, Mississippi 10

ATHENS, Ga. — Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes and Georgia overcame a slow start to beat Mississippi and move one win away from a spot in the SEC championship game.


Georgia (8-1, 6-1) trailed 10-0 before scoring 37 unanswered points. The Bulldogs can clinch the SEC East title and second straight trip to the conference championship game with a win at Auburn next week.


Ole Miss (5-4, 2-3) used blitzes to record five sacks in the first half. The defensive gambles left opportunities for Murray, who completed 21 of 28 passes for 384 yards with no interceptions and touchdown passes of 66, 40, 42 and 28 yards.


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.


Franklin finished with four interceptions for the Tigers (4-5, 1-5).


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.


Temple (3-5, 2-3) lost its third straight, getting outscored 127-44 during that stretch.


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


Clemson 56, Duke 20

DURHAM, N.C. — Tajh Boyd threw for 344 yards and tied a school record with five touchdown passes for the second straight week to help No. 10 Clemson beat Duke .


DeAndre Hopkins caught three of those TD tosses in the opening quarter for the Tigers (8-1, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who scored 42 points by halftime and rolled to their fifth straight win — all by at least 14 points. Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant also had first-half touchdown catches, helping Clemson rack up nearly 500 yards by halftime and 718 for the game.


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.


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.



Texas A&M 38, 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.


Manziel, a redshirt freshman, completed 30 of 36 passes. He ran for a 37-yard touchdown in the second quarter that helped the Aggies build a 31-0 lead by early in the second half.


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


Texas A&M (7-2, 4-2 SEC) has won all five of its road games this season. Christine Michael ran for 50 yards and two touchdowns and Ryan Swope caught nine passes for 121 yards.


Tyler Russell completed 19 of 30 passes for 212 yards for Mississippi State (7-2, 3-2).


Texas 31, 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.


The Red Raiders had to settle for field goals on four trips to the red zone.


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.



Baylor 41, Kansas 14

WACO, Texas — Nick Florence threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns, running back Lache Seastrunk had 194 total yards and Baylor won its first Big 12 game of the season, beating Kansas.



Wyoming 45, Colorado St. 31

LARAMIE, Wyo. — Brett Smith passed for four touchdowns and ran for another in leading Wyoming past Colorado State.


Wyoming (2-7, 1-4 Mountain West) snapped a four-game losing streak and won its fourth straight over the Rams (2-7, 1-4). It is the Cowboys' longest win streak in the more than 100-game series between the two schools since they won seven in a row from 1967-73.


Marshall 38, Memphis 28

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Rakeem Cato threw for 341 yards and four touchdowns to lead Marshall over Memphis.


Cato capped a 75-yard drive with a 28-yard scoring pass to Davonte Allen with 7:34 remaining for the Thundering Herd (4-5, 3-2 Conference USA) after three consecutive touchdowns by the Tigers (1-8, 1-4) had whittled a 31-7 deficit to three points.


With Memphis trailing 31-21, Tom Hornsey's 61-yard pass to Bobby McCain on a fake punt put the Tigers at the Marshall 4. Jai Steib fumbled on a rush from the 2, but Jordan Devey was there to recover and score.


Cincinnati 35, Syracuse 24

CINCINNATI — George Winn ran for a career-high three touchdowns and passed for another off a trick play, leading Cincinnati to a victory over Syracuse that included a change at quarterback for the Bearcats.


Munchie Legaux was benched after nearly throwing another interception in the third quarter. Senior backup Brendon Kay threw a 13-yard touchdown pass that put the Bearcats (6-2, 2-1 Big East) ahead to stay.




Northern Illinois 63, Massachusetts 0

DEKALB, Ill. — Jordan Lynch threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Matt McIntosh threw for one and ran for two and Northern Illinois coasted in its defeat of winless Massachusetts.

He threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Angelo Sebastiano. Akeem Daniels, Martel Moore, Keith Harris and kicker Mathew Sims also added to the scoreboard.

TAMPA, Fla. — B.J. Daniels ran for a first-quarter touchdown before leaving in the fourth with an injury as South Florida stopped a school-record six-game losing streak by beating Connecticut 13-6 on Saturday night.


Daniels was hurt on a 15-yard run inside the UConn (3-6, 0-4)10 just over five minutes into the fourth.
