DALLAS — Damien Williams broke off a 95-yard touchdown run for the longest rush in Red River rivalry history, Blake Bell powered his way in for four TDs and No. 13 Oklahoma beat No. 15 Texas 63-21 Saturday for its second straight blowout in the series.
Landry Jones threw for 321 yards and two touchdowns, and fullback Trey Millard had a career-best 119 yards receiving as the Sooners (4-1, 2-1 Big 12) added another rout to Bob Stoops' impressive rivalry résumé.
Stoops is now 9-5 against Mack Brown and responsible for three of Oklahoma's five most lopsided wins over Texas — and that doesn't include last year's 55-17 clobbering.
The Longhorns (3-2, 1-2) couldn't get a stop and never got their offense going, then lost quarterback David Ash to an apparent left wrist injury in the fourth quarter.
No. 1 Alabama 42,
at Missouri 10
Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon gave Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC) two 100-yard rushers in the same game for the first time this season and the duo combined for five scores in a soggy, weather-delayed game.
No. 4 Florida 31,
at Vanderbilt 17
Quarterback Jeff Driskel ran for 177 yards and three touchdowns and the Gators (6-0, 5-0 SEC) remained undefeated. Vanderbilt (2-4, 1-3) now has lost 47 straight against top 5 teams.
At Texas Tech 49,
No. 5 West Virginia 14
Seth Doege passed for six touchdowns and a season-high 499 yards as Texas Tech ended the Mountaineers' (5-1, 2-1 Big 12) hopes for an unbeaten season.
Texas Tech's defense consistently stymied West Virginia's offense. Heisman Trophy hopeful Geno Smith completed 29 of 55 passes for 275 yards. Texas Tech (5-1, 2-1) had 18 plays of 15 yards or more.
No. 6 Kansas State 27,
at Iowa State 21
Quarterback Collin Klein ran for 105 yards and three touchdowns to help K-State beat the Cyclones (4-2, 1-2 Big 12) for the fifth straight time. Klein also threw for 187 yards for the Wildcats (6-0, 3-0).
No. 8 Ohio State 52,
at Indiana 49
Braxton Miller scored on a 67-yard touchdown run, threw TD passes of 60 and 46 yards and produced his third straight 100-yard rushing game to help the Buckeyes (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) escape.
At No. 20 Rutgers 23,
Duron Harmon scooped up a blocked field-goal attempt and ran 75 yards for a tiebreaking touchdown early in the third quarter and Rutgers rode its defense and special teams to a 6-0 start.
No. 18 Louisville 45,
at Pittsburgh 35
Senorise Perry rushed for 101 yards and a career-high four touchdowns. Teddy Bridgewater passed for 304 yards for the Cardinals (6-0, 1-0 Big East), including a 75-yard score to Devante Parker on the first play of the second half as Louisville continued its best start since 2006.
At No. 19 Mississippi State 41, Tennessee 31
Tyler Russell threw for 291 yards and two touchdowns, LaDarius Perkins added 101 rushing yards and a touchdown and Mississippi State (6-0, 3-0 SEC) beat Tennessee (3-3, 0-3).
At No. 21 Cincinnati 49, Fordham 17
Deven Drane scooted 76 yards for a touchdown after picking up a fumble and Munchie Legaux threw two TD passes, including a 78-yarder to Travis Kelce, as the Bearcats (5-0) stayed perfect.
No. 22 Texas A&M 59,
at No. 23 Louisiana Tech 57
Johnny Manziel accounted for six touchdowns, including two to fend off a late rally, as Texas A&M (5-1) held on for a win over Louisiana Tech (5-1) in a game originally scheduled for Aug. 30 but postponed because of Hurricane Isaac.
At No. 24 Boise St. 20,
Fresno St. 10
D.J. Harper rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown and Joe Southwick threw for another score. Harper was the leader of a Boise State (5-1, 2-0 Mountain West) rushing attack that chewed up 215 yards on the ground and propelled the Broncos to their fifth consecutive win.
At No. 25 Michigan 45,
Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores, brushing off an undisclosed injury as well as the Illini. The Wolverines (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) got a scare when Robinson left the game late in the first quarter. He missed just one-plus possessions, though.
