UCLA 34, No. 7 Texas 12

Austin, Texas — Johnathan Franklin rushed for 118 yards and a touchdown Saturday, and UCLA stunned Texas on its home field again.

Thirteen years after the Bruins walloped the Longhorns, 66-3, in the same stadium, UCLA sent Texas fans heading to the exits early by forcing four first-half turnovers, then letting its grinding ground game chew up the second.

The Bruins (2-2) ran for 264 of their 291 total yards. Quarterback Kevin Prince’s 38-yard touchdown run in the third quarter all but sealed it.

No. 6 Nebraska 17, South Dakota St. 3

Lincoln, Neb. — Judging by the way it struggled in a victory over South Dakota State, Nebraska might have celebrated its win at Washington last week a bit too much.

Rex Burkhead and Kyler Reed scored on consecutive series in the first half, but the Cornhuskers otherwise turned in an uninspired performance against an FCS opponent getting a rare chance to play on the big stage of Memorial Stadium.

“I thought they outplayed us, they outhit us, they flew around with more passion than we did,” Nebraska coach Bo Pelini said.

No. 8 Oklahoma 31, Cincinnati 29

Cincinnati — Landry Jones’ only mistake left Oklahoma sweating one out at the end.

Jones ran an Oklahoma offense moving so fast that Cincinnati couldn’t even line up at times, throwing for 370 yards and two touchdowns, and the Sooners withstood a late Bearcats rally for a victory.

Kansas State 17, Central Florida 13

Manhattan — Carson Coffman’s seven-yard touchdown run with 24 seconds left lifted Kansas State to a come-from-behind victory over Central Florida, giving the Wildcats a 4-0 start for the first time since 2003.

Missouri 51, Miami (Ohio) 13

Columbia, Mo. — Carl Gettis returned a fumble 19 yards for a score on the first play of the game and was among seven Missouri players getting a touchdown apiece.

Iowa State 27, Northern Iowa 0

Ames, Iowa — Jeremy Reeves returned an interception 94 yards for a touchdown, and A.J. Klein returned a pick for another score a few minutes later, sending Iowa State to a victory over Northern Iowa.

Grant Mahoney kicked two field goals for the Cyclones (2-2), and Alexander Robinson added a six-yard TD run.

Baylor 30, Rice 13

Houston — Robert Griffin passed for 268 yards and three touchdowns to lead Baylor to a victory over Rice on a rain-soaked night that included a weather delay of about an hour.

The Bears (3-1) outgained Rice (1-3), 456 to 296, to move past last week’s 45-10 loss to No. 4 TCU.
