No. 1 Alabama falls; Robinson picked off
Question of the Day
No. 3 Oregon 42, Washington State 23
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) _ LaMichael James scored three touchdowns, including an 84-yard scoring reception, and Oregon shook Washington State in the second half.
Coming off a big home win over Stanford that flew the Ducks past Boise State in the AP Top 25, Oregon struggled to make just enough plays to hold off the pesky Cougars. But whether it was enough for the Ducks to hold their spot in the polls remains to be seen. Oregon (6-0, 3-0) was a 36-point favorite, yet led just 36-23 late in the third quarter.
Backup quarterback Nate Costa played the final three quarters for Oregon after Darron Thomas left with an apparent shoulder injury. Costa led three scoring drives and ran for an 18-yard touchdown.
The Ducks were also without backup running back Kenjon Barner for most of the game after he got the worst of a scary collision on a first-quarter kickoff return.
Cliff Harris added a 67-yard punt return for a touchdown, his third punt return for a score this season.
Jeff Tuel threw for 245 yards and a touchdown and James Montgomery added a 26-yard TD run in the first half for Washington State (1-5, 0-3).
James finished with 136 yards on 25 carries and Costa added 84 yards.
No. 4 Boise State 57, Toledo 14
BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ Jeremy Avery ran for three touchdowns, Kellen Moore passed for three more and the defense forced four turnovers.
Moore and the rest of the offense were clicking from the start, scoring on five of their first seven possessions to put the game out of reach early. Boise State (5-0) has now won 19 straight games, the nation’s longest winning streak after top-ranked Alabama was upset by No. 19 South Carolina.
Moore was efficient as usual, connecting on 16 of 22 passes for 267 yards, including a 51-yard touchdown to Titus Young. Avery scored twice on 5-yard runs and another on a 12-yard reverse.
The Bronco defense also did its part, forcing five Toledo turnovers. Early in the third quarter, Bronco defensive end Shea McClellin intercepted an Austin Dantin pass and rumbled 36 yards for a touchdown.
Toledo (3-3) had just 278 total yards in losing for the first time on the road this season.
