No. 13 Stanford upsets No. 2 Oregon in OT, 17-14

The No. 13 Stanford Cardinal scored in the final minutes of regulation before beating No. 2 Oregon in overtime, 17-14, on Saturday night at Autzen Stadium.

Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan led an 11-play, 78-yard drive in the final six minutes of regulation that was capped by a 10-yard touchdown pass to Zach Ertz, that appeared to tie the game at 14-14. The catch was initially ruled incomplete yet replays showed otherwise, with the official review ruling that the tight end's shoulder had come down in bounds and giving Stanford the tying touchdown.

Oregon received the ball first in overtime yet failed to move the offense forward when quarterback Marcus Mariota's intended pass for Josh Huff fell incomplete on third down. The Ducks could still have taken control of the game yet Alejandro Maldonado's 41-yard field goal attempt sailed wide and gave Stanford room for the upset.

The Cardinal then avoided disaster on second down when Hogan appeared to fumble the ball after a rush for no gain. Stanford recovered and two plays later, Jordan Williamson put the game away with a 37-yard field goal to give the Cardinal a 17-14 win over No. 2 Oregon.

In a tightly contested matchup between the two Pac-12 teams, Stanford outgained Oregon 411-410, with running back Stepfan Taylor putting up 161 yards rushing on 33 attempts. Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota was 22-of-38 for 212 yards, adding 89 yards rushing on 12 attempts.


Let's talk Top 25 now

Top 25 mayhem in the polls, computers and BCS awaits us on Sunday. Let's take our best guess at what the college football rankings will look like after a shakeup Saturday.


Baylor upsets No. 1 Kansas State, 52-24

The Baylor Bears beat the No. 1 Kansas State Wildcats, 52-24, on Saturday night, using a tremendous defensive performance to beat the top team in the nation at home.

Baylor roared to a 28-7 lead in the first half and stunned the top team in the nation, before Kansas State scored ten quick points in the final minutes of the second quarter to pull to within 28-17 heading into halftime. The Wildcats offense would implode out of the gates in the third quarter, however, as Baylor quickly took a 35-17 lead after taking advantage of quarterback Collin Klein's interception on the first drive of the half.

Kansas State seemed to gain new life when Nick Florence's interception at the goal line led to Kansas State getting to withing two scores, yet the offense would stall and allow Baylor to pull away in the third quarter. Klein's third interception of the game was turned into an 80-yard touchdown scramble by Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk, effectively putting the game away and giving the Bears a dominated 52-24 lead.

Heisman-hopeful Collin Klein was 27-of-50 for 286 yards, two touchdowns and three costly interceptions, as the Kansas State offense struggled mightily for most of the game against the Baylor offense.


Oklahoma wins shootout against West Virginia

The Sooners prove they can hang with anyone on the offensive side of the ball, as they go back and forth with the Mountaineers and come up with a huge late-season win.


Stanford TD or not?

You probably have an opinion on whether this was a catch or not. Let 'er rip!


Stanford ties Oregon, 14-14, late in 4th quarter

No. 13 Stanford finally took advantage of a long drive on offense, tying No. 3 Oregon late in the fourth quarter on a controversial touchdown catch in the final minutes of regulation.

Trailing 14-7 in the final quarter, Stanford had moved the ball to the Oregon 26-yard line thanks to a strong running attack, yet Jordan Williamson's 43-yard field goal attempt sailed wide and turned the ball over the the Ducks. Oregon failed to take advantage and quickly gave the ball back just five plays later, forced to punt following Trent Murphy's sack of quarterback Marcus Mariota.

Stanford shifted gears on the next drive, changing from a ground attack to a balanced drive to once again quickly move the ball to deep within Oregon territory. Kevin Hogan's 10-yard touchdown pass to Zach Ertz appeared to tie the game but was ruled incomplete, yet replays showed that Ertz may have come down in bounds when his shoulder hit the ground first.


An official review overturned the ruling on the field, tying the game at 14-14 with just over a minute remaining in regulation.


Baylor leading K-State, 52-24, after 3 quarters

The Baylor Bears just keep rolling at home, leading No. 1 Kansas State, 52-24, and are just one quarter away from a major upset.

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein, considered by many to be the top candidate for the Heisman, tossed another killer interception when his fourth-down pass from the Baylor 17-yard line was picked off by cornerback Joe Williams. The interception, Klein's third of the game, ended a 14-play, 58-yard drive that featured a fourth down conversion just five plays before.

Baylor, who had been moving the ball with ease nearly all game, needed just one play to extend it's commanding lead. Running back Lache Seastrunk took off for 80 yards on the first play following the interception, racing to the end zone to give Baylor a tremendous 28-point lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Klein, under duress for most of the game, is just 20-of-39 for 211 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. The Baylor offense, boosted by 302 yards on the ground, has amassed 540 total yards through three quarters.

The Bears have all the momentum and all of the glory, as evidenced by this dancing exhibition on the sideline following Seastrunk's touchdown.




Dance on, you Bears. South Bend, Tuscaloosa, and Athens dance with you.


Vanderbilt crushes Tennessee, 41-18

Three third-quarter touchdowns pushed Zac Stacy and Vanderbilt past Tennessee for the Commodores' fifth straight win.


Baylor leading, 45-24, late in 3rd quarter

Despite being handed a gift touchdown to get back into the game in the third quarter, No. 1 Kansas State continues to struggle offensively and now trails 45-24 after a quick 10 points by Baylor.

Baylor quarterback Nick Florence recovered from his goal-line interception, leading the Bears on a 13-play, 45-yard scoring drive that was capped by Aaron Jones' 50-yard field goal. The drive stalled following a Baylor holding penalty and a questionable non-call on possible pass interference in the end zone.

The Kansas State offense was once again forced to punt after just three plays, however, quickly giving the explosive Bears offense the ball back near midfield. Glasco Martin's 15-yard touchdown run, his third rushing touchdown of the game, just four plays into the drive gave Baylor a dominating 45-24 lead.

The K-State offense has gained just 254 yards in the game so far, compared to 460 yards offense for Nick Florence and Baylor.


K-State trails Baylor 35-24 after Florence INT

No. 1 Kansas State received new life after it appeared that Baylor had once again taken control of the game and now trails 35-24 just over two minutes into the third quarter in Waco.

The Kansas State offense, struggling for most of the night, failed to gain a yard the drive after Baylor took a commanding 35-17 lead just minutes into the second half. The Wildcats tilted the field, however, when Ryan Doerr's 49-yard punt was downed at the Baylor 1-yard line.

Baylor quarterback Nick Florence, on second down from his own goal line, then unleashed what is best described as an exceptionally ill-advised pass. Kansas State cornerback Randall Evans intercepted the pass at the goal line before being wrestled out of bounds. Collin Klein's 1-yard touchdown run just a play later pulling the Wildcats to within two scores once more.

Florence and Klein have both thrown two interceptions in the game, with Kansas State gaining just 221 yards of total offense in the game so far.


Baylor takes 35-17 lead in 3rd quarter

The Baylor Bears took advantage of another Collin Klein interception, needing just four plays to take a 35-17 lead over No. 1 Kansas State in the opening minutes of the third quarter.

The Wildcats had hoped to build on a strong finish to the first half, getting the ball to open the second half trailing 28-17 after scoring 10 points in the final two minutes on the second quarter. The Kansas State quarterback and Heisman-hopeful forced a pass on third down, however, with Baylor's Sam Holl intercepting Klein at the Baylor 44-yard line before returning the ball to deep within Wildcats' territory.

Baylor quarterback Nick Florence and the Bears rushing attack made Kansas State pay just four plays later, when running back Glasco Martin gave his team yet another commanding lead with a 4-yard touchdown run.

Klein is 14-of-23 for 149 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the game so far, with both turnovers leading directly to Baylor touchdowns.


K-State trails Baylor 28-17 at the half

No. 1 Kansas State used some furious play in the final minutes of the first half to get back within striking distance of Baylor, trailing the Bears, 28-17, at halftime.

Baylor roared to a 28-7 lead midway through the second quarter with running back Glasco Martin's 2-yard touchdown run appearing to give the Bears a commanding lead at home.

The Wildcats' strong finish to the half was sparked by Tramaine Thompson's 33-yard kickoff return following Martin's touchdown run, giving K-State quarterback Collin Klein and his offense a short field with which to climb back into the game.

Klein completed four consecutive passes to move the ball 63 yards in about a minute, boosted by a 15-yard pass interference penalty that moved Kansas State into the red zone. Klein connected with Chris Harper for 7 yards two plays later to pull Kansas State to withing two touchdowns with just under two minutes remaining in the half.

The Wildcats' quarterback moved the ball efficiently once more after Baylor's three-and-out, getting Kansas State to the Bears' 6-yard line in under a minute, before the drive stalled with time winding down in the half. Anthony Cantele's 23-yard field goal capped off the 10-point flurry for Kansas State.

Klein was 14-for-20 for 149 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the first half, while Baylor quarterback Nick Florence went 18-for-25 for 178 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Oregon and Stanford tied, 7-7, at the half

No. 2 Oregon and No. 13 Stanford are tied, 7-7, at the half in a tightly-contested Pac-12 game..

Stanford drew first blood after a scoreless first quarter, thanks to quarterback Kevin Hogan's 1-yard run just past two minutes into the second quarter. The Ducks and Cardinal then traded punts before a series of turnovers by both teams after failed fourth-down conversions by each team.

After Hogan's pass intended for Ryan Hewitt fell short on fourth down inside Ducks' territory, Oregon quickly marched down the field on a three-play, 59-yard drive capped off by quarterback Marcus Mariota's 28-yard touchdown pass to a diving Keanon Lowe to tie the game.

Through two quarters, Oregon has out-gained Stanford by 18 yards (231-213) due in large part to another big performance by Mariota. The Ducks' quarterback is 11-of-17 for 115 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He added 71 yards rushing on five carries that was boosted by a 77-yard scramble.

Hogan is 15-of-23 for 118 yards and one interception.


Baylor takes commanding 28-7 lead over K-State

Just minutes after taking a surprising 14-point lead, the Baylor Bears have taken a commanding 28-7 lead over No. 1 Kansas State with just over two minutes remaining in the first half.

Following Nick Florence's 22-yard touchdown pass to Terrance Williams to give Baylor a 21-7 lead, Collin Klein and the Kansas State offense failed to move the ball once more and turned the ball over after a quick three-and-out.

The Bears took quick advantage, overcoming an offensive pass interference penalty thanks to a strong rushing attack by Lache Seastrunk to move the ball deep within Wildcats territory. Seastrunk carried the ball five times for 57 yards on the drive, turning the rushing duties over to Glasco Martin in the red zone. Martin's 2-yard rushing touchdown gave the Bears a 28-7 lead, stunning the top team in the country.

Klein is just 8-of-13 for 90 yards, with the Kansas State offense being held to just 137 total yards in the first half.


Oregon ties Stanford, 7-7, in 2nd quarter

The No. 2 Oregon Ducks are fighting back to avoid an upset, tying No. 13 Stanford at 7-7 with just over three minutes remaining in the first half.

Stanford was given a prime opportunity to take a commanding lead over Oregon following a turnover on downs by the Ducks, yet the Cardinal's drive stalled at the Oregon 41. Stanford elected to play the odds and go for it on with 1 yard to go on fourth down, but Kevin Hogan's pass intended for Ryan Hewitt fell incomplete and gave the ball back to Oregon with prime field position.

The Ducks took just three plays to move 59 yards, thanks to Marcus Mariota's 22-yard pass to Josh Huff, which was followed up just a play later with a 28-yard touchdown pass to Keanon Lowe to tie the game.

Mariota is 9-for-13 for 103 yards and touchdown so far in the game, adding 74 yards rushing on four carries.


Baylor takes 21-7 lead over K-State in 2nd quarter

The Baylor Bears continue to stun the No. 1 Kansas State Wildcats, taking a 21-7 lead midway through the second quarter in Waco, Texas, on Saturday night.

Nick Florence led a 55-yard drive after a Kansas State punt, connecting on all three passes to move the Bears into the Wildcats' territory, with Glasco Martin pushing forward to convert a third down conversion at the K-State 26. The Wildcats appeared to stop the drive with a goal-line interception, but an offsides call extended the drive, giving the Bears another chance.

They made the most of it.

The Bears' quarterback connected with Terrance Williams on the next play for a 22-yard touchdown catch and run, giving Baylor a stunning two-touchdown lead in the second quarter.

Heisman-hopeful Collin Klein has had a rough start to the game, throwing an interception just two plays into the second quarter and gaining just 5 yards on five carries so far in the first half.
