MADISON, Wis. (AP) Jonathan Taylor came to Wisconsin prepared for a heavy workload, even if he was buried deep on the depth chart when training camp opened.

How things have changed in three months at Camp Randall Stadium.

Taylor ran for a touchdown and broke the 1,000-yard mark for the season, Alex Hornibrook passed for two scores and the fifth-ranked Badgers stayed unbeaten with a 38-13 victory over Maryland on Saturday.


No. 10 Oklahoma St. survives Texas in OT

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) During his 13 seasons as Oklahoma State football coach, Mike Gundy has built a reputation for producing dynamic offenses and less than impressive defenses.

On Saturday, the Cowboys leaned on their defense.


Stakes high for No. 2 PSU vs. Michigan

This team is back. That team is back. The practice of proclaiming that a struggling traditional college football power has returned to elite status after a big win is fraught with false steps.

The truth is that a return to glory can rarely be narrowed down to a single game. But if there ever was a "they're back" moment in college football that turned out to be real, it was on Oct. 22, 2016, in State College, Pennsylvania.


RBs in spotlight as Notre Dame hosts USC

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Quarterbacks have received most of the attention whenever Southern California and Notre Dame have their annual showdown in college football. The running backs have often decided the outcome.

It should be no different Saturday night when No. 11 USC (6-1) and No. 13 Notre Dame (5-1) meet as ranked opponents for the first time since the 2009 season.


Louisville wins at FSU on late FG

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Blanton Creque's first game-winning field goal at any level of football came at the opportune time for Louisville.

The sophomore's 34-yard field goal with five seconds remaining lifted the Cardinals to an emotional 31-28 win over Florida State on Saturday. The Cardinals (5-3, 2-3 ACC) took over on their own 24 with 2:05 remaining after Henry Famurewa recovered a James Blackman fumble. They then drove 59 yards in eight plays before Creque's kick.


Kempt leads Iowa State past Texas Tech

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Things were looking pretty good for Iowa State under Matt Campbell even before Saturday's road showdown with Texas Tech.

Then the Cyclones choked down the nation's seventh-most productive offense toward a 31-13 win, which allowed the program the keep pace with some bigger-named Big 12 schools for its best conference start in 15 seasons and its longest road winning streak since the 1960 campaign.


Hall runs for 254 as Pitt wins at Duke

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Duke twice thought it had Pittsburgh pinned deep in its own end of the field. Both times, that became prime scoring position for Darrin Hall.

Hall rushed for career highs of 254 yards and three touchdowns, including two long ones before his go-ahead 4-yarder with 10:48 to play, and Pittsburgh upset Duke 24-17 on Saturday.


Northwestern knocks off Iowa in OT

EVENSTON, Ill. (AP) After completing a short pass, quarterback Clayton Thorson saw two defenders approaching running back Justin Jackson and thought it was a mismatch - against the defense.

Jackson's 23-yard reception on third-and-9 set up Thorson's 1-yard touchdown run as Northwestern rallied from a sluggish first half for a 17-10 overtime victory over Iowa on Saturday.


Rutgers gets second straight Big Ten win

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Things are turning around for Rutgers football.

The 16-game losing streak in the Big Ten Conference came to an end last week, and Chris Ash's kids took another step Saturday with a 14-12 win over Purdue that gave the Scarlet Knights (3-4, 2-2) consecutive wins in the league for the first time since joining in 2014.


BC cools off Virginia with 41-10 win

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Anthony Brown set what proved to be the tone for the day on Boston College's third play from scrimmage.

Pinned at his own 6 and facing third-and-5, the redshirt freshman quarterback took a deep drop, sidestepped two Virginia defenders in the end zone and took off, gaining a demoralizing 15 yards and a first down.
