Tigers can’t keep Tide down

(Continued)

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. —

No. 9 Missouir 48, Kentucky 17: Maty Mauk threw five touchdown passes, four to Dorial Green-Beckham, and No. 9 Missouri cruised past Kentucky.

Making his fourth consecutive start in place of the injured James Franklin, the Tigers’ redshirt freshman completed 17 of 28 attempts for 203 yards and took full advantage of 6-foot-6 sophomore Green-Beckham, whose TD receptions set a school record.

Virginia Tech 42, No. 14 Miami 24: Trey Edmunds ran for four touchdowns, the first three of them set up by Miami special-teams miscues, and Virginia Tech knocked off the 14th-ranked Hurricanes 42-24 on Saturday night.

Edmunds had scoring runs of 10, 2, 4 and 1 yards for the Hokies (7-3, 4-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). Logan Thomas completed 25 of 31 passes for 366 yards, giving him consecutive games of 300 yards or more for the first time in his Virginia Tech career.

No. 19 UCF 19, Houston 14: William Stanback scored two touchdowns and No. 19 UCF held off a late Houston threat to keep first place in the American Athletic Conference all to itself.

Storm Johnson added 127 yards rushing for UCF (7-1, 4-0), which has the inside track to the league’s automatic BCS bid, with victories against the Cougars and Louisville.

No. 23 Arizona State 20, Utah 19: Taylor Kelly ran for a touchdown and threw for another in the fourth quarter and Arizona State came from behind to beat Utah.

Sun Devils All-America defensive tackle Will Sutton sealed the victory with an interception at the line of scrimmage with 1:01 left at the Utah 25.

Pitt 28, No. 24 Notre Dame 21: James Conner ran for two short touchdowns, including the go-ahead score with 9:36 remaining as Pittsburgh upset Notre Dame.

Tom Savage passed for 243 yards and two scores to Devin Street as the Panthers (5-4) took advantage of some sloppy play by the Fighting Irish (7-3) to end Notre Dame’s four-game winning streak.

Kansas St. 49, No. 25 Texas Tech 26: Jake Waters and Daniel Sams each ran for two touchdowns to lead Kansas State past Texas Tech.
