TOLEDO 29, NO. 21 CINCINNATI 23
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) _ Bernard Reedy scored on a 91-yard kickoff return and Toledo handed Cincinnati its first loss of the season.
Cincinnati (5-1) led just once, late in the third quarter, but Reedy quickly erased the deficit with his third special teams touchdown in three weeks, putting Toledo up 26-20.
Toledo’s defense stifled Bearcats quarterback Munchie Legaux and his high-powered offense, which had been averaging 37 points per game.
Cincinnati had one last chance, getting the ball with 42 seconds left. But Legaux’s second interception of the game ended any hope for the Bearcats.
Toledo’s Jermaine Robinson returned Legaux’s first interception for a 75-yard touchdown in the first half.
The Rockets (6-1) have won six straight after a season-opening loss at Arizona.
No. 22 STANFORD 21, CALIFORNIA 3
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) _ Stepfan Taylor ran for a career-high 189 yards and one touchdown, and No. 22 Stanford got its third straight Big Game victory.
In the 115th meeting between the Bay Area schools and the first at remodeled Memorial Stadium, the sunny and serene Strawberry Canyon setting might have been Cal’s best highlight. The Cardinal outgained the Golden Bears 475 to 217 yards, outrushed Cal 252 to 3 yards and never lost its grip on the coveted Stanford Axe.
Stanford’s Josh Nunes completed 16 of 31 passes for 214 yards and a touchdown. He also fumbled and threw an interception late in the fourth quarter with the game well out of reach.
Cal (3-5, 2-3) had not scored so few points in the Big Game since losing 10-3 in 1998. The Bears fumbled three times _ losing two of them _ and had another interception of Nunes wiped out by a penalty.
