Question of the Day
No. 8 OREGON STATE 21, UTAH 7
CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) _ Oregon State’s defense helped out when quarterback Cody Vaz struggled in the rain, and the undefeated Beavers beat Utah for their best start in more than a century.
Vaz made his debut last weekend as the starter in place of injured Sean Mannion and threw for three touchdowns against BYU to earn Pac-12 player of the week honors. This time, he passed for 174 yards against the Utes. But the Beavers’ defense had an interception and a fumble recovery that led to two first-half touchdown runs by Storm Woods.
Woods had all three TDs for Oregon State (6-0, 4-0 Pac-12), which hadn’t opened 6-0 since 1907, when the school was the Oregon Agricultural College. The victory also meant bowl eligibility for the Beavers, who went 3-9 last season and were picked to finish last in the Pac-12 North this year.
Freshman Travis Wilson threw for 172 yards and a touchdown for Utah (2-5, 0-4), which began conference play with four consecutive losses for the second straight season.
No. 10 OKLAHOMA 52, KANSAS 7
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Landry Jones threw for 291 yards and three touchdowns, and Oklahoma scored on a kickoff return and a punt return in the same game for the first time in school history.
Justin Brown made up for a lost fumble on his previous punt return by running his next chance back 90 yards and diving at the pylon for the score. Roy Finch then opened the second half with a 100-yard runback to stretch the lead to 45-0.
The Brown-Finch combo marked the first time the Sooners (5-1, 3-1 Big 12) have had two plays at least 90 yards long in the same game.
James Sims scored on a shutout-preventing touchdown run in the fourth quarter for Kansas (1-6, 0-4), which never presented much of a challenge while losing its 16th straight conference game and 27th out of the last 28.
The Sooners’ first-team defense hasn’t given up a point in two straight weeks heading into next Saturday night’s showdown against No. 5 Notre Dame on Owen Field.
Jones and the first-team offense scored on their first six possessions.
