Ok­la­homa tops Tu­lane; UCLA up­set by Mem­phis

Toronto Star - - SPORTS - THE AS­SO­CI­ATED PRESS

Baker May­field passed for 331 yards and four touch­downs as No. 2 Ok­la­homa fol­lowed its im­pres­sive vic­tory at Ohio State with a 56-14 win over Tu­lane on Saturday.

Ok­la­homa re­ceiver CeeDee Lamb caught four passes for 131 yards and two touch­downs be­fore he was ejected for tar­get­ing on a block in the sec­ond quar­ter. Mar­quise Brown had ca­reer highs of six catches for155 yards, in­clud­ing an 87-yard touch­down grab in the fourth quar­ter for the Soon­ers (3-0). FLORIDA AT THE BUZZER: Feleipe Franks heaved a 63-yard touch­down pass to Tyrie Cleve­land as the clock ex­pired as No. 24 Florida beat 23rd-ranked Ten­nessee 26-20 in a wild, wacky and some­times un­watch­able ri­valry game Saturday.

Franks scram­bled away from the rush on a first-and-10 play with nine sec­onds re­main­ing and found Cleve­land be­hind safety Micah Aber­nathy for a Hail Mary that no one — es­pe­cially the Vol­un­teers — saw com­ing.

The fi­nal play capped a crazy fourth quar­ter in which the teams com­bined for 37 points and lit­tle, if any, de­fence. UCLA UP­SET: Ri­ley Fer­gu­son threw for 398 yards and six touch­downs and Ja­cobi Fran­cis broke up a fourth-down pass in the clos­ing sec­onds in Mem­phis’s win over UCLA.

Fran­cis’ breakup with 56 sec­onds left pre­vented an­other fourth-quar­ter come­back by Bru­ins quar­ter­back Josh Rosen. He was 34-of-56 for 463 yards and four TDs.

But un­like in the Bru­ins’ opener when Rosen led a fourth-quar­ter come­back to beat Texas A&M, the Mem­phis de­fence stiff­ened on UCLA’s fi­nal pos­ses­sion. MICHIGANPULLSITOUT: Dono­van Peo­ples-Jones re­turned a punt 79 yards for a score and Quinn Nordin tied a school record with five field goals, help­ing Michi­gan over­come of­fen­sive strug­gles. OK­LA­HOMA STATE CRUISES: Mason Ru­dolph threw five touch­down passes, all in the first half, for Ok­la­homa State.

Ru­dolph com­pleted 23-of-32 passes for 497 yards be­fore be­ing pulled in the mid­dle of the third quar­ter.
