A week af­ter loss to Cal, BYU up­sets Wis­con­sin

San Francisco Chronicle (Sunday) - - HIGH SCHOOL -

Milpitas’ Squally Canada ran for 118 yards and two touch­downs, and BYU handed mis­take-prone Wis­con­sin its first non­con­fer­ence home loss since 2003, giv­ing the No. 6 Bad­gers fits with its mo­tion of­fense in a 24-21 vic­tory Satur­day.

The Cougars tossed in a trick play, too, when re­ceiver Al­eva Hifo found open tight end Moroni Laulu-Pu­tu­tau for a 31-yard touch­down pass in the sec­ond quar­ter.

Wis­con­sin (2-1) had one last chance to avoid an up­set with a drive that started with 3:55 left at the 8. But nor­mally re­li­able se­nior kicker Rafael Gaglianone’s 42-yard field goal at­tempt to tie with 41 sec­onds left went wide left.

“BYU! BYU!” yelled a small contin­gent of Cougars fans in the stands. Last week, BYU (2-1) lost at home to Cal, 21-18.

The Bad­gers’ 41-game non­con­fer­ence win­ning streak — the long­est ac­tive in the na­tion — came to an end. Their hopes to make the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off prob­a­bly did, too.

Skyler Southam’s 45-yard field goal with 9:58 left, set up by Canada’s 46-yard run on the first play of a five-play drive, gave BYU the lead for good, 24-21. The Cougars fol­lowed the Bad­gers’ blue­print, punch­ing right back af­ter Wis­con­sin tied the game at 21 on Tai­wan Deal’s 5-yard touch­down run.

Deal rushed for two short scores. Sopho­more Jonathan Tay­lor had for 117 yards on 26 car­ries, but Wis­con­sin couldn’t hit many big plays against a de­fense that was giv­ing up 156 on the ground com­ing into the af­ter­noon. Strug­gling quar­ter­back Alex Horni­brook was 18 of 28 for 190 yards, throw­ing an in­ter­cep­tion deep in Wis­con­sin ter­ri­tory on the team’s open­ing drive of the sec­ond half. Canada scored his sec­ond touch­down of the day on the next se­ries.

Tan­ner Mangum was 12 of 22 for 89 yards, but deftly op­er­ated an of­fense that used spread for­ma­tions, mo­tions and sweeps to find holes against Wis­con­sin.

A week of worry at Clem­son over ap­proach­ing Hur­ri­cane Florence ended with a rout in front of a full crowd. Travis Eti­enne ran for 162 yards and two touch­downs and Trevor Lawrence threw for 194 yards, in­clud­ing a 57-yard score to fel­low fresh­man Justyn Ross, for the Tigers (2-0). Clem­son was the lone ma­jor con­fer­ence school in the Caroli­nas and Vir­ginia to play.

#3 Ge­or­gia 49, Mid­dle Tenn. 7: Jake Fromm threw three touch­down passes and Eli­jah Holy­field ran for 100 yards, each play­ing only the first half for the host Bull­dogs (3-0).

#5 Ok­la­homa 37, Iowa St. 27: Oak­land A’s draft pick Kyler Mur­ray threw for 348 yards and three touch­downs and ran for a team-high 77 yards as the Soon­ers (3-0, 1-0 Big 12) held off a tough chal­lenge from the host Cy­clones (0-2, 0-1). Mar­quise Brown had 191 yards re­ceiv­ing and a TD for Ok­la­homa, which lost at home to Iowa State last sea­son.

#12 LSU 22, #7 Auburn 21: Cole Tracy kicked a 42-yard field goal on the fi­nal play to give the visit­ing Tigers (3-0, 1-0 SEC). Joe Bur­row led LSU down the field in the fi­nal min­utes with clutch plays and two pass in­ter­fer­ence calls against the home Tigers (2-1). That set up Tracy’s field goal that was al­most right down the mid­dle and sent LSU play­ers swarm­ing onto the field to cel­e­brate. Bur­row held his own against Auburn’s more her­alded Jar­rett Stid­ham. He com­pleted 15 of 34 passes for 249 yards, with Justin Jef­fer­son gain­ing 97 yards on five catches. Stid­ham was 16 of 28 for 198 yards and a touch­down but threw two in­ter­cep­tions. Jalen El­liott knocked the ball loose from Van­der­bilt re­ceiver Kal­ija Lip­scomb with 1:07 re­main­ing to give the host Fight­ing Ir­ish (3-0) a fourth­down stop. Tony Jones Jr. fin­ished with 118 yards on 17 car­ries for Notre Dame and caught two passes from quar­ter­back Bran­don Wim­bush for 56 yards. Kyle Shur­mur threw for 326 yards and one touch­down for Van­der­bilt (2-1), ral­ly­ing his team back from a 16-3 half­time deficit. Trace McSor­ley ac­counted for five touch­downs and broke Penn State’s record for rush­ing scores by a quar­ter­back. McSor­ley ran for three touch­downs for the host Nit­tany Lions (3-0). He has 24 rush­ing TDs, two more than Daryll Clark.

#24 Ok­la­homa St. 44, #17 Boise St. 21: Tay­lor Cor­nelius ran for two touch­downs and passed for an­other; Jus­tice Hill ran for 123 yards and a touch­down, and Ty­lan Wal­lace had five catches for 105 yards for the host Cowboys (3-0). Brett Ryp­ien passed for 380 yards and three touch­downs for the Broncos (2-1), but was sacked seven times.

#19 Michi­gan 45, SMU 20: Shea Pat­ter­son threw three touch­down passes to Dono­van Peo­ples-Jones to help the host Wolver­ines (2-1) pull away against the Mus­tangs (0-3). Michi­gan took con­trol over the last 2:34 of the first half. Pat­ter­son threw a tie-break­ing, 35-yard TD pass to Peo­ples-Jones, and Josh Metel­lus re­turned an in­ter­cep­tion 73 yards for a score as time ex­pired.

#21 Mi­ami 49, Toledo 24: Ma­lik Rosier threw for two touch­downs and ran for three more to help the visit­ing Hur­ri­canes (2-1), who never trailed and led 21-0 late in the first half. How­ever, Toledo (1-1) twice pulled within a touch­down.
