Brissett was intercepted twice on deep throws, once each by safety Brandon Taylor and star cornerback Tyrann Mathieu.

No. 3 Oklahoma 55, No. 11 Texas 17

DALLAS (AP) _ Landry Jones threw for 367 yards a three touchdowns, Dominique Whaley ran 64 yards for another touchdown and the Oklahoma defense scored three more touchdowns.

Having slipped from first to second to third over successive weeks, Oklahoma (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) stomped its top rival almost as easily as it did lowly Ball State the previous week. The Sooners wound up with their most lopsided win in this series since 2003, when they won by a series-record 52 points.

The Longhorns (4-1, 1-1) couldn’t get anything going on offense. Their only touchdowns came on a kickoff return late in the first half, and a pass in the final minutes when they were down by 45.

No. 8 Clemson 36, Boston College 14

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) _ Tajh Boyd threw for a touchdown and ran for another before leaving with a hip injury.

The severity of Boyd’s injury was unknown. He came in leading the Atlantic Coast Conference in total offense and has been the catalyst for the Tigers’ first 6-0 start in 11 years.

Clemson (3-0 ACC) got five field goals from Chandler Catanzaro and 117 yards and a touchdown from tailback Andre Ellington to put away Boston College (1-5, 0-3).

The Eagles played without ACC preseason player of the year Montel Harris, who aggravated a knee injury in last week’s loss to Wake Forest.

No. 6 Oklahoma State 70, Kansas 28

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Brandon Weeden threw for 288 yards and five touchdowns playing less than a half and Oklahoma State had its highest scoring game since 1970.

Jamie Blatnick recovered a fumble and leaped to tip an interception to himself for two of the Cowboys’ four first-half takeaways, and Oklahoma State (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) scored touchdowns on all eight of its possessions before halftime against the nation’s worst defense.

Kansas (2-3, 0-2) came in allowing a Bowl Subdivision-worst 44.3 points per game, and Oklahoma State had already surpassed that total with 4 minutes left in the second quarter on Weeden’s second TD pass to All-American receiver Justin Blackmon.

No. 13 Georgia Tech 21, Maryland 16
