STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) TCU felt ignored heading into its matchup with high-powered Oklahoma State.

The Horned Frogs can't be overlooked anymore. Darius Anderson ran for a career-high 160 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 16 TCU upset the sixth-ranked Cowboys 44-31 on Saturday to stamp the Horned Frogs as a Big 12 contender.

"People can say what they want to say, but we know what we are, and we try to be the best team every day," TCU defensive end Ben Banogu said. "But you don't just get there after one big win, it's throughout the season. If we can keep the ball rolling and keeping doing what we do, then we'll find ourselves in that conversation."


NC State upsets No. 12 Seminoles on road

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) North Carolina State finally has a statement win in Dave Doeren's fifth year as coach.

No. 5 USC tested in win over California

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) With Sam Darnold and Southern California's usually potent offense struggling to finish drives, the defense kept getting the ball in good positions for the Trojans.

Fifth-ranked USC forced four of its six turnovers in the fourth quarter to set up a touchdown run by Stephen Carr and a TD pass by Darnold, and the Trojans won their 13th straight game by pulling away late for a 30-20 victory over California on Saturday.


No. 1 Tide rolls over Vanderbilt 59-0

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Alabama coach Nick Saban challenged the top-ranked Crimson Tide to prove they knew how to not only win, but dominate an opponent for a full 60 minutes.

That, and a bit of motivation provided by the confident Vanderbilt Commodores , was all Alabama needed.


No. 2 Clemson pulls away late, downs BC

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson coach Dabo Swinney looked over the stat sheet and smiled.

"You rush for 342 yards," he said, "and you're going to win a lot of football games."


Jackson sets Louisville career TD record

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville got the easy bounce-back victory it expected and Lamar Jackson broke a school record to boot.

Barrett's 5 1st-half TDs power Ohio St.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) For all the criticism he has endured, J.T. Barrett keeps making his mark on the Ohio State record books.

The Ohio State quarterback threw touchdown passes to five different receivers in the first half before giving way to the mop-crew on the way to a 54-21 rout of Nevada-Las Vegas on Saturday. His 209 yards moved him into second place behind Art Schlichter for all-time passing yards at Ohio State with 7,348. He needs another 200 to pass Schlichter, the Buckeyes QB from 1978 to 1981.


Texas A&M tops Arkansas 50-43 in OT

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin turned to the leaders of his team in a back-and-forth, potentially frustrating game against Arkansas.

With a young team, including a freshman quarterback, Sumlin asked his veteran players to show confidence. He wanted a calm demeanor, and he didn't want anyone to panic.


Walton sparks No. 14 Miami past Toledo

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Mark Walton was in tears on the sideline, fearing that his season might be over because of whatever was causing the intense pain in his left ankle.

Vinny Scavo came to the rescue.


Texas Tech halts Houston's home streak

HOUSTON (AP) For a program that has become known for dynamic quarterback-wide receiver combinations, the next great one may have arrived for Texas Tech.

Nic Shimonek and Keke Coutee continued their hot start on Saturday, combining for 161 yards and a 77-yard touchdown in the Red Raiders' 27-24 win over Houston that snapped the Cougars' 16-game home winning streak.
