Bay­lor loses to Duke, starts sea­son 0-3

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - OSU POSTGAME - FROM WIRE RE­PORTS

Shaun Wil­son had two long touch­down runs to lead Duke past Bay­lor 34-20 on Satur­day.

Wil­son rushed for 176 yards and scored on runs of 50 and 65 yards to help the Blue Devils (3-0) open with three con­sec­u­tive vic­to­ries for just the sec­ond time since 1994.

The Bears seemed de­ter­mined not to let Daniel Jones beat them: Jones was 20 of 35 for 193 yards but was sacked five times and was held with­out a touch­down for the first time this sea­son.

“They did so many dif­fer­ent things we hadn’t seen, de­fen­sively,” Duke coach David Cut­cliffe said. “I thought that was dif­fi­cult for Daniel and just in gen­eral, I don’t know if I’ve seen as many peo­ple show as many fronts as they showed in one ball game.”

The Bears are off to their worst start since the 1999 team opened with four straight losses on its way to a 1-10 fin­ish in Kevin Steele’s first sea­son.

West Vir­ginia de­feats Delaware State 59-16

West Vir­ginia coach Dana Hol­gorsen wasn’t left dis­cour­aged by sev­eral early glitches in a blowout win over an FCS school.

Hol­gorsen came away pleased over­all de­spite sev­eral first-half turnovers on of­fense and his de­fense’s in­abil­ity to shut down Delaware State in the Moun­taineers’ 59-16 vic­tory on Satur­day.

West Vir­ginia (2-1) com­piled 538 yards of of­fense against the Hor­nets (0-3), who lost their 14th straight game. But West Vir­ginia had plenty of prob­lems on both sides of the ball in its fi­nal tuneup be­fore the start of Big 12 play.

On de­fense, West Vir­ginia’s coaches wanted a more con­sis­tent ef­fort from a unit that had al­lowed an av­er­age of 470 yards. It didn’t hap­pen. The long runs and blown pass cov­er­ages that plagued the Moun­taineers over their first two games kept on com­ing.

Delaware State had 301 yards of of­fense, its high­est out­put of the sea­son.

The Hor­nets had six runs of at least 10 yards, in­clud­ing Brycen Al­leyne’s 47-yarder in the first quar­ter.

Kansas loses at Ohio, road los­ing streak up to 42 games

Nathan Rourke threw for 152 yards and two touch­downs as Ohio de­feated Kansas 42-30 on Satur­day, ex­tend­ing the Jay­hawks’ road los­ing streak to 42 games, the long­est ac­tive streak in the na­tion.

Rourke earned his first start against the Jay­hawks af­ter shin­ing in the first two games of the sea­son.

“I re­ally didn’t think too much of it (the start) be­cause they were still go­ing to go play both quar­ter­backs,” Rourke said.

Rourke suc­ceeded Quin­ton Maxwell as start­ing quar­ter­back, but both played as planned — and both had suc­cess.

Though Maxwell didn’t start, the two-quar­ter­back sys­tem worked well.

“They do a good job with the one-two punch with th­ese two quar­ter­backs,” Kansas coach David Beaty said. “Hon­estly, on the field I didn’t rec­og­nize just a lot of dif­fer­ence.”

Iowa St. pulls away in sec­ond half, beats Akron 41-14

Ja­cob Park passed for 317 yards and two touch­downs, in­clud­ing a 43-yarder to Marchie Mur­dock, as Iowa State pulled away in the sec­ond half for a 41-14 vic­tory over Akron on Satur­day.

Park com­pleted 24 of 33 throws and scored on a 14-yard run for the Cy­clones (2-1), who equaled a school record by top­ping 40 points for the third straight game to start the sea­son.

Iowa State also set a school mark by gain­ing 400 yards for the sixth game in a row as sopho­more David Mont­gomery rushed for 127 yards and a score, and se­nior Allen Lazard caught his third TD pass of the year.
