West Virginia’s Smith, S Carolina’s Shaw on target
Question of the Day
NO. 15 KANSAS ST. 24, NO. 6 OKLAHOMA 19
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ John Hubert ran for 130 yards and a touchdown, Jarell Childs scooped up a fumble and returned it for a score and the Wildcats beat the Sooners.
Collin Klein picked up 228 yards of total offense and ran for the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter in a solid performance that outshined and error-filled night by Sooners quarterback Landry Jones.
Jones threw for 298 yards and a late touchdown to get Oklahoma (2-1, 0-1 Big 12) within five but also fumbled and threw an interception that put Kansas State (4-0, 1-0) in position to go ahead.
No. 7 SOUTH CAROLINA 31, MISSOURI 10
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) _ Connor Shaw completed 20 straight passes and threw for two touchdowns and Marcus Lattimore ran for two scores as South Carolina manhandled Missouri in the Tigers’ first Southeastern Conference road game.
Shaw missed his first pass to Lattimore on the game’s first series, then hit his final 20 for the Gamecocks (2-0 SEC).
Missouri (2-2, 0-2) struggled against a Gamecocks defense that has given up three touchdowns all year. The Tigers had a season-low 254 yards.
Lattimore rushed for 85 yards. His touchdowns gave him South Carolina’s career mark with 33 rushing scores, a record Lattimore shared with Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers and Harold Green.
No. 8 WEST VIRGINIA 31, MARYLAND 21
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) _ Doug Rigg returned a fumble 51 yards for West Virginia and Tavon Austin had another remarkable game against his home-state Terrapins.
The Baltimore native caught 13 passes for 179 yards and set a school record for career receptions.
Still, West Virginia looked flat at times on offense, after averaging 56 points and 612 yards in its first two games. Geno Smith had as many incompletions in the first half (nine) as he did in the first two games combined before getting on track. He finished with 338 passing yards.
