Iowa caps off perfect (12-0) regular season


Jordan Canzeri broke long touchdown runs on backtoback series in the third quarter, and No. 3 Iowa completed its first perfect regular season in 93 years with a 2820 victory over Nebraska on Friday in Lincoln, Neb.

The Hawkeyes (120, 80, No. 4 CFP) were far from dominant but good enough against the sloppy Cornhusk ers (57, 35) on a raw afternoon. As one of two remaining unbeaten teams, they will head to next week’s Big Ten championsh­ip game in the middle of the College Football Playoff race.

TCU 28, Baylor 21 (2OT)

In Fort Worth, Texas, Trevone Boykin threw an 8yard touchdown pass to KaVontae Turpin in the second overtime and No. 15 TCU (102, 72 Big 12) beat No. 7 Baylor on a rainy night, knocking the Bears out of contention for a third straight Big 12 title.

With the loss by Baylor (92, 62, No. 7 CFP), the Big 12 champion will be the winner Saturday night between No. 5 Oklahoma and No. 9 Oklahoma State.

Houston 52, Navy 31

In Houston, Greg Ward, Jr. threw for 308 yards and three touchdowns to lead No. 21 Houston (111, 71) to a spot in the first American Athletic Conference championsh­ip game with the win over No. 16 Navy (92, 71).

Washington 45, Wash. St. 10
