Kansas hands OU first setback


Devin Neal ran for 112 yards and the go-ahead touchdown for Kansas with 55 seconds left, Oklahoma’s Dillon Gabriel threw incomplete to the end zone on the final play of the game, and the Jayhawks beat the sixth-ranked Sooners 38-33 on Saturday in Lawrence.

Kansas snapped an 18-game slide to the Sooners in their final matchup before they depart for the Big 12 for the Southeaste­rn Conference, and they became the highest-ranked opponent the Jayhawks have beaten since Virginia Tech in the 2008 Orange Bowl.

The Jayhawks (6-2, 3-2 Big 12) looked as if they’d given away an opportunit­y to win the game when Jason Bean was picked off with 2:29 to go. But their defense forced the Sooners (7-1, 4-1) to punt, and after two long completion­s and a fourth-down throw that picked up 37 yards, Neal scampered in from the 9 to give Kansas the lead back.

No. 1 Georgia 43, Florida 20:

Carson Beck threw two touchdown passes in his hometown of Jacksonvil­le, Florida, Daijun Edwards ran for two scores and Georgia extended its winning streak to 25. The two-time defending national champion Bulldogs (8-0, 5-0 SEC) have now won three in a row and six of seven in the rivalry known as “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.”

No. 7 Texas 35, Brigham Young 6:

Xavier Worthy’s 74-yard punt return for a touchdown got the Longhorns (7-1, 4-1 Big 12) going in a home victory over the Cougars (5-3, 2-3). Maalik Murphy threw two touchdown passes, and Texas limited BYU to two field goals.

No. 8 Oregon 35, No. 13 Utah 6:

Bo Nix threw for 248 yards and two touchdowns to lead Oregon to a victory over Utah, which had an 18-game home winning streak snapped.

Troy Franklin tallied 99 yards and a touchdown on eight catches for the Ducks. Bucky Irving added 83 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Oregon (7-1, 4-1 Pac-12) won in Salt Lake City for the first time since 2016. The Ducks racked up 390 total yards and forced two turnovers.

Bryson Barnes threw for 136 yards and had two intercepti­ons. Devaughn Vele had a season-high 80 yards on seven catches for the Utes (6-2, 3-2).

No. 10 Penn State 33, Indiana 24:

Drew Allar threw three touchdown passes, including a 57-yarder to former Maury High star KeAndre Lambert-Smith with 1:46 to play, and Penn State’s defense forced a late safety to beat Indiana in State College, Pennsylvan­ia.

Allar hooked up with Khalil Dinkins and Tyler Warren for touchdowns and Nick Singleton ran for another score for the Nittany Lions (7-1, 4-1 Big Ten), who recovered after blowing a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter.

Lambert-Smith finished with six catches for 96 yards to lead all Penn State receivers.
