Big 12 roundup: Kempt, Iowa State stun No. 3 Oklahoma

Mayfield continues to excel as Sooners host Iowa State

Auburn 44, MS 23: Kerryon Johnson rushed for a career-high 204 yards and three TDs for No. 12 Auburn.

NO. 8 TCU 31, NO. 23 WEST VIRGINIA 24 - At Fort Worth, Texas, Kenny Hill avoided a defender in the backfield and lunged forward through two more for a 3-yard touchdown run with 2:53 left and TCU remained the Big 12's only undefeated team.

Ohio State, which the Sooners beat 31-13 on September 9, is at No. 9, followed by Auburn at No. 10. Western Michigan and Buffalo played a seven-overtime game, which Western Michigan won 71-68, and which proved that at some point - four overtimes? five? - they really need to stop these things and call them ties. Lanning hit 2 of 3 passes for 25 yards and carried nine times for 35 yards.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Zach Abey threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Carmona with 15 seconds left, and Navy (5-0) defeated Air Force (1-4) after blowing a 21-point lead in the second half.

-Vincent Sellers, Tennessee State, returned two interceptions for TDs in a 45-21 win over Eastern Kentucky. Thanks to the Oklahoma Sooners really laying an egg at home against Iowa State, it was going to be a guaranteed victor of a week for jokes.

After Saturday's 38-31 loss to Iowa State, Oklahoma fell to No. 12 in the Associated Press poll. Now, the Sooners (4-1, 1-1 in the Big 12) find themselves in a precarious position regarding a CFP spot. It was just Iowa State's second victory against Oklahoma since 1961 and the Cyclones (3-2, 1-1 Big 12) did it without their starting quarterback.

Iowa State starting quarterback Jacob Park is taking a leave of absence for unspecified "personal health issues", the team announced Friday night. Since then, they've lost the last 20 games against ranked opponents.

It's ISU's first win over Oklahoma in 27 years, the last coming in 1990. It was Iowa State's first road win over a Top 5 team.

Mark Dantonio has done what seemed improbable a decade ago and in the previous century, figuring out a way to help Michigan State have its way with Michigan on a consistent basis.

Drew Anderson threw for 597 yards, a Buffalo (3-3, 1-1) record, with seven TD passes and a touchdown run.

Michigan State has beaten Michigan eight times in a 10-year stretch for the first time in a series that dates to 1898. MI could not overcome numerous mistakes, including five turnovers and several costly penalties. Ty Isaac and Sean McKeon fumbled.

While Kempt threw three crucial second half touchdowns to beat the Sooners, Lanning made plays on both sides of the ball. Clifton Duck and Tae Hayes each had three each. This season they've been penalized 28 times for 287 yards, an average of 54.7 yards per game. The Bulls set the FBS record for the most points in a losing effort.

Buffalo had just converted on a 25-yard field goal to open the door for the Broncos who scored in just four plays. That broke the previous mark set by MI (1984-2014) and tied by the Gators last week.

After the game, some Cyclones' players planted a flag at midfield. Book wasn't spectacular, going 17-of-31 for 146 yards, but managed the contest enough to help put the country on notice about Notre Dame's growing success. Florida (3-2) got the mark in a 17-16 SEC loss to visiting LSU (4-2).
