No. 1 Alabama falls; Robinson picked off
Minnesota (1-5, 0-2) wore white helmets and uniforms on an unseasonably hot day, but that didn’t help the Gophers break their skid against Wisconsin or overcome an early 14-0 deficit.
Adam Weber, who started his 44th game, went 11 of 25 with 249 yards and three touchdown passes _ one to MarQueis Gray in the second quarter and two to Da’Jon McKnight in the fourth, when the Gophers were already on their way to their fifth straight loss.
No. 24 Missouri 26, Colorado 0
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ Blaine Gabbert threw two touchdown passes before leaving with a hip pointer after three quarters and Missouri made several big plays on special teams.
The Tigers (5-0, 1-0 Big 12) had four sacks and an interception in their fifth straight victory over Colorado (3-2, 0-1) by a total score of 203-40. This one came just a few days after the 20th anniversary of the infamous Fifth Down game in 1990, which helped the Buffaloes win their only national championship.
Missouri struggled most of the game offensively other than a 97-yard, 15-play drive capped by Gabbert’s 10-yard touchdown pass to Michael Egnew near the end of the half. Those woes were masked by a blocked field goal, blocked punt, fake punt and safety in the school’s first shutout since blanking the Buffaloes 58-0 Oct. 25, 2008 at home.
Punter Trey Barrow’s 26-yard run on a fake was enough to lead Missouri until backup quarterback James Franklin passed him in the fourth quarter, finishing with 37 yards on four carries and throwing a 10-yard touchdown pass to Michael Egnew.
No. 25 Air Force 49, Colorado State 27
AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) _ Air Force added some air to the nation’s top-ranked running attack and Jonathan Warzeka returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown.
Tim Jefferson threw for 160 yards on 5 of 9 passing and hooked up with Zach Kauth for two scores. He also set up the Falcons’ first two touchdowns with completions of 51 and 39 yards as Air Force (5-1, 3-0 Mountain West) celebrated its first game as a ranked team in seven seasons with a big win.
Ben Cochran added a 25-yard TD toss for the Falcons on a fake field goal in the second half.
The Falcons’ first three touchdown drives averaged just over a minute thanks to Jefferson’s big throws and two takeaways by defensive back Reggie Rembert that set up the short field against the Rams (1-5, 0-2).
