Baker Mayfield passed for a school-record 598 yards and No. 8 Oklahoma outlasted No. 11 Oklahoma State, 62-52, in Stillwater on Saturday in one of the highest-scoring games in the history of the rivalry.

Mayfield threw five touchdown passes and ran for another score to outduel Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph in a battle of Heisman Trophy contenders. Rudolph passed for 448 yards and five touchdowns, but he had three turnovers in the second half.

Marquise Brown caught nine passes for a school-record 265 yards, and he had touchdown receptions of 84 and 77 yards for the Sooners (8-1, 5-1 Big 12). Oklahoma gained 785 total yards. Justice Hill ran for a career-high 228 yards for Oklahoma State (7-2, 4-2).

Oklahoma State appeared to have lost its last chance when Oklahoma’s Tre Brown intercepted the ball off a deflection with 1:56 remaining and the Cowboys trailing 55-52. A targeting penalty against Oklahoma’s Will Johnson negated the play, but the Cowboys couldn’t take advantage of the extra opportunity.

James Washington caught seven passes for 128 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game in the second half with an ankle injury.

The game was tied at 38-all at halftime. In the second quarter, the teams combined for 52 points and 540 yards. Mayfield passed for a school-record 387 yards in the first half. Rudolph hung in there with him and passed for 258 yards and three touchdowns. Brown tied Juaquin Iglesias’s school record for yards receiving in a half with 178 before the break.

Alabama 24, LSU 10 — Jalen Hurts passed for 183 yards and a touchdown as the top-ranked Crimson Tide (9-0, 5-0 SEC) defeated the No. 19 Tigers (6-3, 3-1) in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Hurts also ran for 44 yards and a score. Darrel Williams had 11 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown for LSU.

Iowa 55, Ohio State 24 — Nate Stanley threw for 226 yards and five TDs, and the Hawkeyes (6-3, 3-3 Big Ten) throttled the No. 3 Buckeyes (7-2, 5-1) in Iowa City.

Josh Jackson added three interceptions for Iowa State, which beat its fourth top-five opponent in its last five tries at home.

Iowa raced out to a 31-17 halftime lead on a pair of Stanley TD passes to Noah Fant.

Stanley later fired a 2-yard TD pass with a defender hanging onto his foot that put the Hawkeyes ahead, 38-17, late in the third quarter.

J.T. Barrett threw a career-high four interceptions for Ohio State, which allowed its most points in a game under coach Urban Meyer.

The Buckeyes committed nine penalties and gained just 371 yards in their most lopsided defeat since last year’s 31-0 loss to eventual national champion Clemson in the playoff.

Georgia 24, South Carolina 10 — Jake Fromm threw for two TDs to lead the No. 2 Bulldogs (9-0, 6-0 SEC) over the Gamecocks (6-3, 4-3) in Athens, Ga.

Fromm completed 16 of 22 passes for 196 yards with scoring passes of 10 yards to Javon Wims and 20 yards to Mecole Hardman.

Georgia has won its first nine games for the first time since 1982. The Bulldogs needed a Mississippi win over Kentucky on Saturday to clinch a spot in the SEC championship game.

Nick Chubb ran for 102 yards on 20 carries for Georgia. Michel added 81 yards rushing.

Wisconsin 45, Indiana 17 — Jonathan Taylor rushed for 183 yards and a TD and Alec Ingold had three scores as the No. 4 Badgers (9-0, 6-0 Big Ten) pulled away from the Hoosiers (3-6, 0-6) in Bloomington, Ind.

Wisconsin extended the nation’s second-longest winning streak to 10 and its school record for consecutive Big Ten victories to 12. The Badgers also remained one of a handful of unbeaten teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Notre Dame 48, Wake Forest 37 — Brandon Wimbush passed for a career-high 280 yards and ran for two TDs as the No. 5 Fighting Irish (8-1) won their seventh straight, beating the Demon Deacons (5-3) in South Bend, Ind.

Wimbush was 15-of-30 passing and threw a 34-yard touchdown to sophomore Chase Claypool, who had a career-high 180 yards on nine receptions. Wimbush also had 110 yards on 12 carries and the second TD was a 50-yarder in the second quarter.

Wake Forest did not go down without a fight, piling up 587 yards against a defense directed by former Demon Deacons coordinator Mike Elko.

Clemson 38, N.C. State 31 — Tavien Feaster ran for an 89-yard touchdown to end the third quarter and K'Von Wallace picked off Ryan Finley on the game’s final play to help the No. 6 Tigers (8-1, 6-1 ACC) hold off the No. 20 Wolfpack (6-3, 4-1) in Raleigh, N.C.

Feaster’s break-loose run up the middle and gave Clemson a 31-21 lead entering the fourth, then the Tigers had to hang on in the final seconds as North Carolina State got one more shot to tie the game in the final minute.

Michigan St. 27, Penn St. 24 — In East Lansing, Mich., Matt Coghlin kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give the No. 24 Spartans (7-2, 5-1 Big Ten) a victory over the No. 7 Nittany Lions (7-2, 4-2) in a game that was delayed nearly 3½ hours by severe weather in the second quarter.

Brian Lewerke threw for 400 yards and two TDs for Michigan State, and the Spartans were aided by a roughing the passer call on Penn State’s Marcus Allen. Lewerke was hit by Allen on a third-down pass that fell incomplete in the final minute. The penalty moved the ball to the Penn State 22, and the Spartans were able to run the clock down before Coghlin’s winning kick.

The redshirt freshman made the kick, then ran back down the field and slid across it on his stomach while his teammates joined him in celebration.

Trace McSorley threw for 381 yards and three touchdowns with three interceptions for Penn State. Nittany Lions star Saquon Barkley was held in check. He had 0 yards rushing in the first half and finished with only 63.

TCU 24, Texas 7 — Kyle Hicks ran for two TDs as the No. 10 Horned Frogs (8-1, 5-1 Big 12) rebounded from their only loss with a victory over the Longhorns (4-5, 3-3) in Fort Worth.

In a game dominated by two of the Big 12’s best defenses, Hicks had 41 yards rushing on 11 carries. That included his 1-yard TD to end TCU’s opening drive of the game and his 14-yard score that put the Horned Frogs up, 17-0, early in the second quarter.

Texas managed only 263 total yards in its biggest losing margin in coach Tom Herman’s first season.

The Longhorns went into the game already 0-3 against Top 25 teams. Those losses were by a combined 11 points, two of them in overtime. Iowa State was still unranked when Texas won 17-7 in Ames at the end of September.

West Virginia 20, Iowa St. 16 — Will Grier threw two touchdown passes, Justin Crawford rushed for 102 yards, and the Mountaineers (6-3, 4-2 Big 12) beat the No. 14 Cyclones (6-3, 4-2) in Morgantown, W.Wa.

Iowa State trailed, 20-0, late in the second quarter and never recovered in losing on the road for the first time.

Auburn 42, Texas A&M 27 — Jarrett Stidham threw for 268 yards and three TDs as the No. 16 Tigers (7-2, 5-1 SEC) pulled away in the second half and cruised over the Aggies (5-4, 3-3) in College Station, Tex.

Kerryon Johnson added 145 yards rushing and a touchdown and provided a highlight-reel play with a nifty one-handed catch for an 11-yard gain on third down in the fourth to keep a drive going. Eli Stove capped that possession with a 4-yard touchdown run that pushed the lead to 42-20 to put the game out of reach.

Washington St. 24, Stanford 21 — Luke Falk threw for 337 yards and three TDs as the No. 25 Cougars (8-2, 5-2 Pac-12) beat the No. 18 Cardinal (6-3, 5-2) in Pullman, Wash.

Snow started to fall heavily at the end of the first quarter. Stanford hadn’t played in snow since a 1936 game against Columbia in New York.

Bryce Love, slowed by an ankle injury, was held to 69 yards, his worst outing of the season for Stanford. He came in as the nation’s leading rusher, averaging 198 yards a game.

Holy Cross 42, Fordham 20 — Peter Pujals completed a key pass to Blaise Bell on fourth and 9 late in the first half and the Crusaders (4-6, 3-2 Patriot League) scored on the next play to begin a stretch of five unanswered touchdowns in their victory over the Rams (4-7, 2-3) in New York.

One play after the fourth-down conversion, Gabe Guild scored on a 15-yard run forging, a 14-14 tie minutes before halftime. Holy Cross then dominated in the second half, scoring four unanswered touchdowns, rolling up 354 yards rushing — most since 2013 — and grinding out drives of 76, 98, 80, and 82 yards.

Fordham’s Chase Edmonds (20 carries, 63 yards, two TDs) became the Patriot League’s career rushing leader with 5,677 yards and the Patriot’s all-purpose yards leader with 7,184.

Delaware 31, Maine 17 — Colby Reeder returned a fumbled punt for the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter and the Blue Hens (6-3, 4-2 Colonial Athletic Association) beat the host Black Bears (4-4, 3-4) in Orono.
