At No. 6 Washington 48, Fresno State 16: Dante Pet­tis had four touch­downs in­clud­ing an NCAA record-ty­ing eighth punt re­turn touch­downs of his ca­reer, and Washington fin­ished off the un­der­card of its sched­ule with a rout of Fresno State on Satur­day. Pet­tis had touch­down re­cep­tions of 4 and 7 yards in the first half, and a 73-yard TD pass from Jake Brown­ing on the sec­ond play of the sec­ond half to give Washington (3-0) a 48-7 lead. But it was his 77-yard punt re­turn late in the first quar­ter that left Husky Sta­dium buzzing and put Pet­tis’ name into an­other record book.

Pet­tis caught the kick from Blake Cu­sick near the Washington side­line, shook one de­fender ini­tially, hur­dled an­other in the open field and fi­nally stepped through a last tackle at­tempt. Pet­tis also got a key down­field block from Myles Bryant to com­plete the re­turn and give Washington a 27-0 lead.

At No. 22 Washington State 52, Ore­gon State 23: Luke Falk threw six touch­down passes — three to Tavares Martin Jr. — and Washington State beat Ore­gon State for its fourth con­sec­u­tive vic­tory over the Beavers. Washington State (3-0, 1-0 Pac-12) was com­ing off a triple-over­time vic­tory over Boise State.

Falk, the FBS ac­tive leader with 98 touch­down passes, com­pleted 37 of 49 passes for 396 yards with­out an in­ter­cep­tion. Martin had 10 vatches for 194 yards.

Ore­gon 49, at Wy­oming 13: Royce Free­man ran for three touch­downs in the first half and Ore­gon roughed up Wy­oming quar­ter­back Josh Allen in a vic­tory over the Cow­boys.

Allen drew rep­re­sen­ta­tives from 16 NFL teams to War Me­mo­rial Sta­dium, but it was the Ducks (3-0) who im­pressed. Free­man ran for 157 yards on 30 car­ries and turned a screen pass into a 50-yard gain. Justin Her­bert passed for 251 yards and a score, and added a touch­down run.

As for Allen, in what could be his last game against Power Five com­pe­ti­tion, the 6foot-5, 230-pound ju­nior was 9 for 24 for 64 yards — his sec­ond-low­est to­tal as a starter — and a 10-yard touch­down run. He fum­bled late in the sec­ond quar­ter run­ning a draw and Ore­gon’s Tyree Robin­son re­turned the ball to the Cow­boys 4.

At Colorado 41, North­ern Colorado 21: Steven Mon­tez threw for a ca­reer-high 357 yards and four touch­downs, help­ing Colorado beat North­ern Colorado in the first meet­ing be­tween the schools on the foot­ball field since 1934.

Mon­tez spread around the wealth by throw­ing TD strikes to Devin Ross , Shay Fields, Bryce Bobo and Jay MacIn­tyre. Colorado (3-0) turned the ball over twice deep in North­ern Colorado ter­ri­tory to keep things in­ter­est­ing.
