Washington Vs. Oregon Final Score: Ducks Win, Setting Up Huge Matchup With Stanford

The Oregon Ducks did their part on Saturday night, downing the Washington Huskies in the final game at Husky Stadium before its renovation. With the win, the Ducks setup a huge Pac-12 matchup next week, pitting the undefeated Stanford Cardinal against one-loss Oregon. The winner takes control of the Pac-12 North and has the inside track to the Rose Bowl.

Oregon was tested by the Huskies, but the Ducks hit the gas in the second half and powered to a 34-17 win. Oregon came firing right out of the gate, scoring on its first two possessions in the second half to stretch a 17-10 lead into a 31-17 advantage. From there, the defense locked down and the offense added another score to close out the victory.

LaMichael James looked like his normal self, rushing for 156 yards and a touchdown in the win. Kenjon Barner and De'Anthony Thomas each scored rushing touchdowns, as well. Darron Thomas passes for 169 yards and a touchdown to guide the Ducks to victory.

Chris Polk was, surprisingly, held under 100 yards for the night, finishing with 80 on 24 carries. Freshman Kasen Williams caught six passes for 79 yards, including an impressive touchdown grab.

Oklahoma State Vs. Kansas State Final Score: Cowboys Win Thriller Over Pesky Wildcats, 52-45

While the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide were playing the Game of the Century in Tuscaloosa, the Oklahoma State Cowboys beat the Kansas State Wildcats in the game of this Saturday night in Stillwater. Oklahoma State held against Collin Klein and the Wildcats offense at the goal line in the final seconds to preserve a 52-45 victory.

The two teams combined for 32 points in the fourth quarter, with 25 of them coming in a stretch that took 3:00 of game clock. Brandon Weeden threw for 501 yards and four touchdowns, Justin Blackmon had 13 catches for 205 yards and two touchdowns, and Klein had 375 combined passing and rushing yards, with three touchdowns on the ground and one through the air.

Oklahoma State trailed at 38-37 late in the fourth, but immediately responded with a touchdown and two-point conversion; from there, the two teams each scored another touchdown, and Klein led K-State down the field on an improbable potential game-tying drive.

But Klein, not the most refined passer, misfired on three throws with goal to go, allowing the Cowboys to escape another Big 12 shootout with a spotless record.

Oklahoma State should now be ranked No. 2 when the Week 11 BCS rankings are released on Sunday night. It would be the program's highest-ever BCS ranking, and give the Cowboys the inside track to a BCS National Championship Game showdown with LSU.

LSU Vs. Alabama Final Score: Tigers Take Tuscaloosa In Overtime Classic

The LSU Tigers appeared to win the game against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the first round of overtime, but Michael Ford stepped out of bounds by INCHES while streaking into the end zone. Boy that was close! The game remained 6-6, but the Tigers had a first down inside the 10.

For live Alabama-LSU score updates and conversation, head right here.

Kenny Hilliard tumbled with the ball into the line of scrimmage on first down. Spencer Ware did about the same on second. On third down, Les Miles sent out Drew Alleman. The reasoning, of course, is that a bad snap need not end the possession.

From 25 yards out, Alleman was iced by Nick Saban. Then, from 25 yards out, Alleman fired it through to make it 9-6 and ensure the Tigers will remain the No. 1 team in the country.

The Alabama reaction:

Arizona State Vs. UCLA Final Score: Bruins Pull The Upset, 29-28

UCLA is now tied for the lead in the Pac-12 South, even after stumbling all over the place to open the season. The low-point was the blowout loss to Arizona, in which the Bruins were able to muster absolutely nothing and were involved in a brawl before the half. But now, just a few weeks later, UCLA has come all the way back, downing Arizona State to take the lead in the South.

Derrick Coleman scored from a yard out with just under a minute to go, giving UCLA a 29-28 lead over the Sun Devils at the Rose Bowl. The touchdown plunge capped a five-minute drive that saw UCLA go 79 yards for the go-ahead score.

Arizona State still had a chance, down by one with 49 seconds to go. After the Sun Devils drove to within field goal range, Alex Garoutte lined up for a 46-yard field goal to win. But his attempt was wide right and never had much of a chance, setting off a celebration at the Rose Bowl.

Out of nowhere, here comes the Bruins after a 29-28 win over No. 19 Arizona State.

Arkansas Vs. South Carolina Final Score: Razorbacks Roll 'Cocks, 44-28, Injure Connor Shaw

Week 10's SEC undercard proved a couple of things: the Arkansas Razorbacks still have an explosive offense, and the SEC West's hegemony over its brethren in the SEC East is nearly absolute. The Razorbacks pulled away late for a 44-28 win over the South Carolina Gamecocks in Fayetteville.

Tyler Wilson threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns in the victory, and the Razorbacks got another 136 yards and two touchdowns from their running game as Arkansas more than doubled up the Gamecocks in terms of yardage.

South Carolina, by contrast, made efficient use of its scant 206 yards, compiling 197 of them on three touchdown drives. Connor Shaw threw for 128 yards and a touchdown, but fumbled on a late sack, giving the Razorbacks great field position that they turned into a game-sealing touchdown

To make matters worse for the Gamecocks, Shaw was injured on that sack and did not return. That bodes ill for the Gamecocks' chances over the rest of their schedule, but tonight's loss means that they have already ceded control of the SEC East to Georgia.

Meanwhile, Arkansas' big win might give them control of its own destiny in the SEC West, should LSU pull an upset in Tuscaloosa tonight.

Houston Vs. UAB Final Score: Case Keenum Sets Another Record In 56-13 Win

Case Keenum is now the NCAA's all-time leading passer after breaking Timmy Chang's record in a 56-13 win over UAB on Saturday night. The Houston Cougars remained perfect on the season and Keenum continued to roll, throwing for 402 yards and two touchdowns. It was another efficient night, with Keenum only missing on five of his throws in a 39-of-44 performance.

11 different receivers caught passes, led by Tyron Carrier's 12 catches for 105 yards and a touchdown. Daniel Spencer and Justin Johnson each caught touchdown passes, as well.

The Cougars blew it open in the second half, turning a 21-10 lead into an easy victory. Keenum also rushed for two touchdowns, each of which came from a yard out. Michael Hayes and Charles Sims ran for a combined 164 yards and each scored a touchdown in the win.

Southern Mississippi Vs. East Carolina Final: Defense, Special Teams Give Eagles A Win

Southern Miss' offense scored 14 points. East Carolina's offense scored 28 points. The bad news for East Carolina is that they also count the points that come from defense and special teams play, and there were more than enough of those points for Southern Miss to make up the difference as the Golden Eagles won 48-28.

As far as he offense for Southern Miss, Austin Davis was 16-of-24 passing for 133 yards and one of the offenses two touchdowns. A half-dozen rushers cobbled together 137 yards and the other offensive touchdown, a 3-yard dash by Desmond Johnson.

Dominique Davis wasn't terrible at quarterback for ECU -- 22-of-36 for 262 yards and two touchdowns -- but he threw a pair of interceptions, and both of them were pick-sixes. Take those away, and it's 34-28, and maybe a different game. But again, they count those kinds of things when they calculate the score, no matter how much East Carolina might wish they didn't.

Texas A&M Vs. Oklahoma Final Score: Sooners Win 41-25 On Running Game, Aggie Turnovers

It might be hard for Oklahoma fans to focus on the fact that they actually won their last conference clash with Texas A&M. For them, the most important part of the game might actually be the injury to Ryan Broyles, who had a team-leading 87 receiving yards on two catches before going out.

As far as the scoring went, the game was probably done when the Sooners took a 41-10 lead into the fourth quarter. The Aggies managed to put together a late but ultimately futile rally, putting 15 points on the board on a 16-yard rushing touchdown by Ben Malena, an eight-yard pass to Cyrus Gray and a two-point conversion pass to Malcolme Kennedy.

Landry Jones wasn't particularly effective, going 18-of-38 for 255 yards and two touchdowns. But the Sooners ground out 149 yards rushing, including 99 yards on 26 carries by Roy Finch.

Texas A&M didn't help itself by committing four turnovers, including three interceptions by quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who was otherwise 32-of-64 for 379 yards and two touchdowns. That's how you lose a game in which you outgain the other team by 123 yards.

Ryan Broyles Injury Update: Torn ACL Likely Ends Oklahoma Great's Career

Awful news out of Norman: Oklahoma Sooners wide receiver Ryan Broyles, the NCAA's all-time receptions leader, has suffered a torn ACL. This will likely end his season, and, since he's a senior, his college career.

John E. Hoover@johnehoover Confirmed: Ryan Broyles suffered a torn ACL. #Sooners

Broyles went down in the third quarter against Texas A&M with an obvious knee injury. He made it off the field without apparent agony, sitting on the trainer's table while surrounded by at least a half-dozen team medics. At one point a doctor delivered him some news in his ear -- his head dropped. When it came back up, he was crying. Broyles was helped into the locker room, and the injury update made its way out after the game.

Broyles will be remembered as one of the greatest players in Oklahoma history. He had a chance to be a highly drafted NFL player last year, but chose to come back for a title run.

Purdue Vs. Wisconsin Final Score: Badgers Destroy Boilermakers, 62-17

The game between Wisconsin and Purdue was effectively over after the 24-7 second quarter that gave the Badgers a 38-17 lead, but the rules of the game require that all four quarters be played. So Wisconsin proceeded to score 24 more points, Purdue put nothing else on the board, and the final ended up being 62-17.

Russell Wilson was 15-of-20 passing for 204 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He spread those passes among nine different receivers. Wilson had 76 more yards and another touchdown on 10 rushes. And Montee Ball churned out 224 yards and three more touchdowns.

Caleb TerBush, meanwhile, was the only Purdue offensive player to scratch the 100 yardage mark in any category, and barely at that -- he was 10-of-19 for 103 yards, a touchdown and two picks passing. Ralph Bolden, the Boilermakers' top rusher, had 49 yards on nine carries.

Northwestern Vs. Nebraska Final Score: Purple Punishes Huskers In Lincoln

The Nebraska Cornhuskers got perhaps their rudest Big Ten welcome yet, a 28-25 home battering at the paws of the previously 3-5 Northwestern Wildcats. Until a last-minute scoring drive, the Cats outgained the Huskers by 100 yards, by committee every step of the way. Kain Colter, Dan Persa and Trevor Siemian worked together to throw for 261 yards, while Colter led a 209-yard rushing attack that featured six carriers.

The crazy part! Northwestern lost the turnover battle.

The Wildcats won in very Husker fashion, holding the ball for the majority of the game and running the ball 54 times. Taylor Martinez threw for 308 and ran for 53, but Rex Burkhead was held to 50 yards on 21 attempts, and no other Huskers rusher did anything of note.

Things could get even worse for Nebraska, which has to travel to face stern Penn State and talented Michigan before welcoming Iowa.

Michigan State Vs. Minnesota Final Score: Feisty Gophers Fall Short

The Minnesota Golden Gophers had a chance to make it two straight upsets, but the Michigan St. Spartans held on to win, 31-24. MarQueis Gray kept pace with Kirk Cousins, throwing for a yard more and rushing for -- well -- 83 more, but also threw two interceptions.

Not a whole lot of pride for Sparty in walking away, but it still counts in the standings, and at least the Gopher menace has finally been curbed. The Spartans get the Iowa Hawkeyes next, who just upset the Michigan Wolverines in a controversial finish. 

Da'Jon McKnight gets the game ball after bringing in 174 of Gray's passing yards and catching all three of his touchdowns.

Georgia Vs. New Mexico State Final Score: Bulldogs Cruise, 63-16, After Massive Second Quarter

Georgia was without most of its running game against New Mexico State. Fortunately, New Mexico State did not choose this Saturday to channel the spirit of a good football team. The Bulldogs rolled up 42 second quarter points and cruised to a 63-16 victory.

Aaron Murray threw for 238 yards and five touchdown passes — all five coming over an eight-minute stretch in the second quarter — to pace Georgia. And Georgia rolled up 258 rushing yards, too; Isaiah Crowell, suspended after a violation of team rules, was clearly not missed all that much.

The Bulldogs allowed New Mexico State to throw for 276 yards, too, but most of that came in the second half, with the game fully in hand. Both of the Aggies' touchdowns came in the fourth quarter.

Louisville Vs. West Virginia Final Score: Cardinals Upset 'Eers, 38-35

The West Virginia Mountaineers outgained the Louisville Cardinals 533 yards to 359 on Saturday, but couldn't find the end zone often enough despite a great outing by quarterback Geno Smith

Smith accounted for 410 yards through the air, going 31-for-44 passing for three touchdowns and no interceptions. A lost fumble early in the fourth quarter in Louisville territory may have turned the game for Cardinals, however. The Mountaineers were driving to get the score back within striking distance, but the turnover would stall any momentum the team had regained.

West Virginia would score a touchdown with 9:01 left on the clock, giving fans in Morgantown hope for a comeback. The Cardinals had other ideas, however, running over seven minutes off the clock on a 13-play touchdown drive, leaving the Mountaineers just 1:50 to make up a 10-point deficit. West Virginia would score on a one-yard touchdown pass to Stedman Bailey, but couldn't recover the ensuing onside kick, sealing the game for Louisville, 38-35.

Texas Tech Vs. Texas Final Score: Longhorns Run All Over Raiders, Win 52-20

It's not every day that a team completes five passes and scores 52 points in a game. Welcome to Texas' 32-point drubbing of Texas Tech, which apparently spent every bit of winning football it had to take down Oklahoma in that thrilling upset.

Four different Longhorns rushed for at least 45 yards, including Joe Bergeron, who rushed for 191 yards and three touchdowns on 29 carries. Foswhitt Whittaker had another 83 yards and two scores on 10 rushes. David Ash was the leading passer for the Longhorns -- technically, at least -- going 4-of-7 for  125 yards. Despite the complete lack of an air attack, Texas still rang up 595 yards of total offense.

Texas Tech was a lot closer in terms of yardage than on the scoreboard. The Red Raiders put together 411 yards, including Seth Doege's 40-of-55 for 381 yards and two touchdown performance.

Indiana Vs. Ohio State Final Score: Buckeyes Survive, Down Hoosiers 34-20

The Ohio State Buckeyes were in a dogfight for a while, finding themselves tied 20-20 with the Indiana Hoosiers in the second half. A 20-yard touchdown run by quarterback Braxton Miller to end the third quarter gave the Buckeyes a second wind, however, and the Hoosiers wouldn't challenge again. Final score: 34-20, Ohio State.

The Hoosiers, perpetual underdogs, certainly put up a fight. Indiana found some success on the ground against one of the conference's best defensive fronts, with Stephen Houston and quarterback Tre Roberson combining for 40 carries and 126 yards. Unfortunately, the Buckeyes were even better on the ground, racking up 346 yards among Miller, Daniel Herron and Carlos Hyde.

With the win, the Buckeyes kept themselves in good position to make the B1G's inaugural championship game. With a Penn State loss, the Buckeyes would control their own destiny to the Rose Bowl.

Michigan Vs. Iowa Final Score: Hawkeyes Pull Upset At Home

Michigan had steamed through the early portion of its schedule and looked like a Big Ten championship contender. Then the Wolverines went to Iowa City, and they ran into a road bump; a lackluster day from Denard Robinson and a controversial call late combined to help Iowa upset Michigan, 24-16.

Robinson led the Wolverines with 194 passing yards and two touchdowns, and had another 55 yards on the ground, but he looked like he had a third touchdown pass late. Robinson connected with Junior Hemingway with seconds remaining on what could have been a game-tying touchdown, but officials ruled it an incomplete pass on the field and then upheld that ruling on review.

Michigan couldn't score after that play, either, leaving Iowa with a controversial victory.

The Hawkeyes got 132 rushing yards and two touchdowns from Marcus Coker in the win. And James Vandenberg threw for 171 yards and another touchdown.

Marquel Wade Suspended For South Carolina Game, SEC Announces

The SEC has announced Arkansas Razorbacks wide receiver Marquel Wade has been suspended for the team's upcoming game against the South Carolina Gamecocks. Wade was ejected last weekend after laying out a Vanderbilt Commodores punt returner who didn't even have the ball, then carrying on about it all the way to the locker room

Wade apologized on Monday, saying he thought Jonathan Krause has the ball before the hit. You can watch the video here.

Coach Bobby Petrino, known for commenting briefly, commented briefly on the news of the suspension: 

We have addressed the matter and will comply with the league's decision.    

On offense, Wade has nine touches for 99 yards on the season, with his two best games coming against New Mexico and Missouri State. His primary contributions have come on special teams.
