Cyclones hand No. 3 Sooners first loss

But since back-to-back triumphs in 1960 thanks to the famous "Dirty Thirty" and again in 1961, the only Cyclone wins came in 1990 and yesterday.

There was nothing fluky about it.

No. 4 Penn State 31, Northwestern 7: Penn State, 3-0 advantage in takeaways.

"I'm sure I'll get comments that Iowa State is my dad or something like that", he said. Defensively, the champs held Wake Forest off the scoreboard before two fourth-quarter TDs made the game look closer than it was. Oklahoma still has a strong nonconference victory against Ohio State, but where do they fit in the one-loss line?

The pass Kyle Kempt threw to Lazard was money, too.

#East High, buoyed by a win over Des Moines Roosevelt Friday, will need to savor victory in its final two games against Des Moines East and Johnston to save Our Town's prep football face and avoid a rarity - an overall losing record for all three public schools since reorganization in 1972.

"There's been a lot of adversity at Iowa State for a long time, and there's been a cloud around us".

NO. 9 WISCONSIN 38, NEBRASKA 17 - At Lincoln, Neb., freshman Jonathan Taylor rushed for a season-high 249 yards and two touchdowns to lead a punishing ground game that helped Wisconsin wear down Nebraska. Andersen relies on dual-threat quarterbacks, which Kempt isn't, so he left. The Bulldogs also avenged a 17-16 loss to Vanderbilt previous year by beating the Commodores for the 20th time in the past 23 games in the series.

Nic Shimonek still threw for 233 yards and two scores, and Justus Parker picked off two passes and returned one for a score as Tech (4-1, 1-1 Big 12) beat Kansas for the 11th straight time. "So, we know how to do it, but knowing how to do it and doing it are two different things". He has had this issue for three games, yet he has managed to score 11 touchdowns in those games. OU did lose in game five (Texas) in 2015 and found a way to make the four-team field so there is a precedent. "Ninety percent of those kids (in that situation) would transfer and go somewhere else to play quarterback".

At the post-game handshake after Dallas had squeezed out a 23-20 win from a 14-0 deficit, Switzer got a chewing-out from Cincinnati Coach Dave Shula.

Kudos went out to Iowa State's all-purpose senior Joel Lanning, who took 57 snaps on defence, 13 on offence - including as quarterback - and eight more on special teams in finishing with 25 passing yards, 35 rushing yards, eight tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery. McSorley completed 15 straight passes to break Kerry Collins' program record and was 25-for-34 overall. The Cyclones then marched to the game-winning touchdown.

"We will (enjoy it)", Campbell told FOX. "That falls on us as coaches".

But is Campbell a insane dreamer? The Spartans (4-1, 2-0) are also 4-0 in night games at Michigan Stadium. Stanford starting quarterback T.C. Ostrander had suffered a seizure the previous weekend, so Tavita Pritchard replaced him. John O'Korn, replacing injured starter Wilton Speight, threw three interceptions in the second half.

Will Grier threw for 366 yards and three TDs for West Virginia. It wouldn't feel right to let a Saturday go by without a new SEC coach on the hot seat, so we'll throw the Hogs' head guy here after a 48-22 loss at SC (4-2, 2-2). "I would bet that every game's going to be like this", TCU coach Gary Patterson said.

Iowa State has miles to go, and the rest of this season is likely to be uneven. Michigan's streak ended with a 31-0 loss at Notre Dame on September 6, 2014. A Goliath got dropped Saturday.

But toppling a monster a decade ago pointed the Cardinal toward "national status". By the cardinal-and-gold.
