SYRACUSE-24 W. VIRGINIA-13
With the Orangemen holding on to a 10-6 lead over WVU early in the fourth quarter, Syracuse cornerback Andre Brinson blocked a punt that set up James Mungro’s 2-yard TD run to help send Syracuse to a 24-13 victory. The Mountaineers’ hurry-up offense struggled against the Syracuse defense, which forced three costly turnovers that led to 17 points. Both defenses kept the game close as neither offense could mount much of anything.

OREGON-27 UCLA-20
Joey Harrington brought his team back from a fourth-quarter deficit to lead No. 7 Oregon past No. 16 UCLA 21-20 to remain atop the Pac-10 and in the national championship. UCLA kicker Chris Griffith, who had made two field goals in as many attempts earlier in the game, was short and wide right on what would have been a career-best 50-yarder as time expired. The Bruins, losers of three straight games, had moved from their own 20 to the Oregon 33. Wesley Mallard dropped Akil Harris for no gain on UCLA’s final play from scrimmage.

NC STATE-34 FSU-28
Ray Robinson ran for two touchdowns, including a decisive fourth-quarter score as North Carolina State snapped 10th-ranked Florida State’s 39-game Atlantic Coast Conference home winning streak with a 34-28 victory Saturday. The game ended with Florida State quarterback Chris Rix throwing unsuccessfully into the end zone twice – the final pass intended for Talman Gardner. Aside from a brief time in first quarter, the Wolfpack dominated the game. They accumulated 463 yards of total offense and 26 first downs while holding the ball for 34:58, keeping Florida State’s explosive offense on the sideline. Rix’s 3-yard touchdown flip into the end zone with 10:05 left, pulled the Seminoles to 31-28, but North Carolina State then added a field goal with 2:11 left, forcing the Seminoles to score a touchdown.

OREGON ST-49 WASHINGTON-24
Jonathan Smith passed for 317 yards and two touchdowns and freshman Steven Jackson ran for three scores as Oregon State upset No. 8 Washington 49-24 Saturday, ending a 13-game losing streak to the Huskies. OSU running back Ken Simonton rushed for 107 yards and added three touchdowns – two rushing and the first receiving. The loss left Washington (7-2, 5-2) with no chance to win the Pac-10 title, and likely out of contention for a BCS game. Smith was 18-of-28 for 328 yards and two touchdowns. The Huskies’ ground game didn’t help him much, producing just 88 yards. The Huskies trailed 35-10 at halftime and managed just six yards in the third quarter.
