Question of the Day
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) _ Oregon State’s Ryan Katz threw for 393 yards and two touchdowns, and sneaked across for another score.
The sophomore from Santa Monica, Calif., completed 30 of 42 against an Arizona defense that had been ranked No. 2 nationally, giving up 230.8 yards per game.
The Wildcats (4-1, 1-1 Pac-10), in the top 10 for the first time since the 1999 preseason rankings, never led in a loss that dampened their hopes for the school’s first trip to the Rose Bowl. The Wildcats’ Nick Foles completed 35 of 46 for 440 yards and three touchdowns.
Oregon State (3-2, 2-0) lost standout receiver James Rodgers to a knee injury in the second quarter. He was in street clothes on crutches in the second half after seven catches for 102 yards, including a 33-yarder for the Beavers’ first score.
Foles’ 12-yard touchdown pass to Keloa Antolin cut the lead to 29-27 with 1:52 to play but Oregon State recovered the subsequent onside kick attempt. Arizona got the ball on its own 20 with two seconds left and tried to use a short pass and a series of laterals to score. But Antolin was stopped at midfield to finish Oregon State’s fifth consecutive victory in Tucson.
No. 10 Utah 68, Iowa State 27
AMES, Iowa (AP) _ Jordan Wynn threw for 325 yards and two touchdowns and Shaky Smithson threw a TD pass and caught another one for Utah.
Eddie Wide added three touchdowns for the Utes (5-0, 2-0 MWC), who scored 31 unanswered points in the second quarter and racked up their most points since beating Wyoming 69-14 in 1983.
Smithson, a wide receiver, gave the Utes a 17-14 lead with a 32-yard touchdown pass. Matt Asiata and Wide followed with short TD runs, and Wynn found Smithson for a 61-yard touchdown to make it 38-14 late in the first half.
Reggie Dunn’s 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown pushed Utah’s lead to 51-20 midway through the third quarter.
Austen Arnaud had 178 yards passing for Iowa State (3-3, 1-1 Big 12), which has surrendered 106 points in the last two games.
No. 11 Arkansas 24, Texas A&M 17
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) _ Ryan Mallett threw three touchdown passes in the first half for Arkansas and Tramain Thomas sealed the victory at Cowboys Stadium with an interception in the end zone on the final play.
