No. 5 TCU 45, Wyoming 0

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) _ Andy Dalton threw for a season-high 270 yards and three touchdowns a week after his worst game of the season and TCU recorded consecutive shutouts for the first time in 55 years.

Dalton was 14 of 17 and surpassed last week’s passing total on the first play of the second quarter, a 31-yard strike to Bart Johnson that put the Horned Frogs (6-0, 2-0 Mountain West) ahead 21-0.

Wyoming (2-4, 0-2 Mountain West) had to go with backup quarterback Dax Crum because the injured Austyn Carta-Samuels didn’t make the trip. Crum completed a 40-yard pass on a handoff-reverse-throwback trick play to start the game but the Cowboys generated just 151 total yards after that.

TCU led 31-0 at halftime a week after going to the break up just 6-0 against Colorado State, where Dalton finished 11 of 24 with a late TD pass in a 27-0 win.


No. 8 Auburn 37, Kentucky 34

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) _ Cam Newton drove Auburn into position for Wes Byrum’s 24-yard field goal as time expired.

Newton ran for a career-high 198 yards and four touchdowns and deftly guided the Tigers (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) 88 yards in the final 7:22 after the Wildcats tied it at 34.

The Tigers chewed up the clock behind the steady play of Newton, converting three third downs on the final drive. They moved inside the Kentucky 10 then set the ball up for Byrum.

The senior calmly drilled the fifth game-winner of his career and his teammates ran onto the field in celebration.

Randall Cobb accounted for four touchdowns for the Wildcats (3-3, 0-3) _ one passing, two running and one receiving _ but couldn’t stop Kentucky from dropping its third straight.
