Sun, 23 Oct 2016 06:33:42 UTWashington State (5-2, 4-0 Pac-12) had more trouble with Arizona State's defensive scheme in the first quarter, unable to get anything going as the Sun Devils dropped deep into coverage and forced Falk to throw underneath. Once Falk adjusted, he picked the Sun Devils (5-3, 2-3) apart, leading the Cougars to 28 straight points, a run triggered by Robert Taylor's 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Falk completed passes to 11 different receivers and connected on 42 of 53 overall to keep Washington State tied atop the Pac-12 North Division with No. 5 Washington after its fifth straight win. Arizona State was down to its fourth-string quarterback after Manny Wilkins was injured on the opening drive and had four other starters out. Tim White had a 70-yard touchdown on a punt return and Zane Gonzalez hit a 29-yard field goal to pull Arizona State within 37-32. The Sun Devils were missing two starters from their offense, Sam Jones and AJ McCollum, and safety Armand Perry was out with a turf toe injury.
Sun, 23 Oct 2016 04:17:15 UTDALLAS (AP) — A grim-faced Tom Herman could hear the whoops and hollers of SMU players as the Houston coached tried to explain a shocking 38-16 loss to the Mustangs on Saturday night. Ben Hicks threw for three touchdowns and ran for another score in SMU's first win over a ranked team in five years. Greg Ward Jr. couldn't shake a persistent SMU pass rush or find receivers for big plays, finishing with 241 yards passing — almost 100 below his average — and just 3 yards rushing on 17 carries thanks to seven sacks. Herman got conservative moments later, choosing a 19-yard field goal attempt on fourth down from the SMU 2. The Cougars lost two fumbles in the first quarter and never got their high-powered offense going. SMU defensive end Jarvis Pruitt recovered one of the fumbles and had three sacks in the Mustangs' first win over a ranked team since beating No. 20 TCU 40-33 in overtime in 2011. The Cougars start a stretch of three straight home games against UCF next Saturday. The Mustangs visit Tulane next Saturday before a home game against Memphis, which just lost its first conference game against Navy.
Sun, 23 Oct 2016 03:51:40 UTJake Browning threw three touchdown passes to give him 26 for the season, added another rushing TD, and Huskies used a big first half to roll past Oregon State 41-17 on Saturday. The schedule gets more difficult beginning next week with a trip to No. 19 Utah, followed by a road game at California, with USC, Arizona State and a trip to Washington State still looming on the schedule. Ross had 115 yards receiving and Pettis added 112 yards — both with four catches — giving the Huskies two receivers with more than 100 yards for the first time since 2002. The depleted Beavers started third-string quarterback Marcus McMaryion after Darell Garretson and Conor Blount were injured. The Beavers were also without starting running back Ryan Nall due to a foot injury aggravated in last week's loss to Utah. Tim Cook had 108 yards rushing and a late TD, while Victor Bolden Jr. had a 75-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. "If you watch college football or care about defense of care about the Pac-12 on defense you know how good those guys are up front and they are elite," Oregon State coach Gary Andersen said of Washington's defense. WASHINGTON FIXTURE Since 1961, Frazer Cook has been the voice of the University of Washington band for any football game where the entire band is performing, home, away and bowl games.
