Next game: Oct. 12 vs. Western Michigan -rr Buckeyes convincing in win Solid Ohio State rolls again, deals Paterno worst loss in 12 years By The Associated Press COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State Express just keeps rolling along. And coach John Cooper isn't sure how much better his third- ranked Buckeyes can play after Saturday's 38-7 rout of No. 4 Penn State. "What a great victory," Cooper gushed after Ohio State handed coach Joe Paterno his worst loss in 12 years. "Our offense executed the game plan and we got control early. "I don't know if we can play better than we did." Stanley Jackson turned what was supposed to be a tough matchup into a mismatch, throwing two touchdown passes in a 24- point first half that put the Buckeyes in control. Joe Germaine added two TD passes and Pepe Pearson had 141 yards — his fourth straight game over 100 yards — and a TD. Paterno, in his 31st season, hadn't been beaten as soundly since a 44-7 loss to Notre Dame in 1984. His worst losses were 38-point defeats by Nebraska in the 1984 Kickoff Classic and by UCLA in 1966. T KANSAS CONFERENCE The Associated Press Penn State quarterback Wally Richardson is sacked by Ohio State's Greg Bellisari (30) and Andy Katzenmoyer in the third quarter. "I can't even second-guess my- just got a good whipping in every self today," Paterno said. "They're as good as any football team that we've played in a long time. They played with more poise and more confidence then we did and we way. The impressive win kept Ohio State (4-0) in the thick of the national title chase, while Penn State (5-1) all but fell out of the running. The victory, coupled with Northwestern's 17-16 upset of Michigan, also puts the Buckeyes in control of the Big Ten race and a berth in the Rose Bowl. "I don't know if we're better than Florida and Florida State," Cooper said of the teams ranked ahead of Ohio State in the AP poll, "but if we keep playing like this we have to move up. I thought this one was gonna be a nail-biter." Jackson had scoring passes of 42 yards to Dimitrious Stanley in the first quarter and 24 yards to fullback Matt Keller in the second as the Buckeyes rolled over a defense that allowed just 27 points in five games. Germaine, who usually shares time with Jackson, came on in the middle of the second quarter and threw a 34-yard TD pass to Stanley on his second play. Germaine added a 3-yard TD pass to fullback Matt Calhoun in the fourth quarter. Jackson was ll-of-22 for 169 yards and added 53 yards rushing, while Germaine was 3-of-8 for 46 yards. After Jackson's second TD pass made it 17-0 in the second quarter, he took a look at the Penn State players. "I looked over at their huddle and their guys had their heads down," Jackson said. "I said, 'Look at them, they don't even want to be here.' " Bethany too much for McPherson Munoz throws for 463 yards — 308 in the first half — to fire Swedes' 51-26 conference win By LARRY MORITZ The Salina Journal LINDSBORG — Jorge Munoz has had his share of 300-yard passing games during his playing days as Bethany College quarterback. But 300-yard passing halves is a different story. Munoz threw for 308 yards in the first half alone to help Bethany build a 21-point halftime advantage and the Swedes eventually rolled to a 51-26 victory Saturday over McPherson College at Anderson Field. The victory in the Swedes' regular-season home opener enabled Bethany to improve to 21 overall and 2-0 in Kansas Conference play, while McPherson dropped to 1-3 and 1-2. Munoz finished with 463 yards passing and four touchdowns on 31 of 45 attempts. He was in for only one play in the fourth quarter, but that was a 49-yard touchdown pass to Van Mortensen to put the Swedes up 51-13 only V BIG 12 <- eight seconds into the final period. "That's definitely a good night," Munoz said. "The last couple of games our offense hasn't been clicking. We got a new offensive coordinator (Steve Barrows) and a lot of new faces this year. "We're still not quite there yet because we had a few mistakes tonight, but it's just a matter of time." What mistakes the Swedes did have were hidden rather nicely in 624 yards offense on 90 plays. Both Mortensen and Bobby Lugo finished with more than 100 yards receiving — Mortensen with 169 yards on 11 catches and Lugo 101 on eight receptions — while Frenchie Buckner picked up 97 yards on six catches. McPherson native Mike Godwin added 128 rushing for the Swedes to key the potent offensive attack. "That was definitely a good feeling," Bethany coach Ted Kessinger said of his team's balance on offense. "We didn't expect that in the first half. McPherson quarterback Rudolph "Turtle" James came into the game as the leading rushing in the KCAC and put up some impressive statistics of his own. James finished with 208 yards rushing on 21 carries and had the Bulldogs only pass reception of the game for 40 yards. But James* numbers came mainly in the final two quarters as he had only 2 yards rushing at halftime. "That Turtle James is a good player," Kessinger said. "He, plays with his heart and he is one of the finest players in this conference. "That is probably one of the better McPherson teams I've seen in a long time. They have a good attitude and good effort and this has been a good rivalry. McPherson has some good football players in their program." Lugo had two touchdown catches and Godwin had two of his three rushing touchdowns in the first half as the Swedes built a 31-10 lead at the break. Munoz completed 14 consecutive passes during one stretch in the first half. The Bulldogs were hanging tough and trailed 17-10 after Matt Farnsworth's 33-yard field goal with 10:37 to play in the second quarter. But Bethany pulled away on a 7-yard touchdown pass from Munoz to Lugo at the 7:27 mark, and Godwin capped an 87-yard drive near the end of the half with a 2-yard touchdown carry. Texas rebounds in big way, trounces 0-State After back-to-back losses, No. 23 Longhorns convert early turnovers and roll to 71-14 win By The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas — Ricky Williams ran for 156 yards and three touchdowns as No. 23 Texas rebounded, from consecutive losses against Notre Dame and Virginia with a 7114 victory over Oklahoma State .Saturday. Texas (3-2, 2-0 Big 12 Conference) converted two early Cowboys' (3-2, 0-2) turnovers into a 10-0 lead and rolled up 401 yards in building a 41-14 lead at intermission. It was the most points scored by Texas since a 72-15 victory over Rice in 1977. The Longhorns had 10 scoring drives of less than two minutes and capped the first- half scoring with a 68-yard TD march that included 47 yards in penalties against Texas and a 56-yard run by Williams on first-and-35 from the Texas 30. The run by Williams, who had 141 yards on nine carries in the first half, set up a 14- yard TD pass from Richard Walton to Mike Scarborough with seven seconds left before intermission. Texas also scored on runs of 3, 23 and 7 yards by Williams, runs of 1 and 2 yards by Priest Holmes, a 1-yard run by James Brown, a 38-yard run by Shon Mitchell, a 3- yard run by Chris Butcher and field goals of 38, 48 and 43 yards by Phil Dawson. The Longhorns finished with 624 yards — 344 on the ground — for the second highest offensive total in school history (676 yards against SMU in 1969). Texas, which turned five Cowboys' turnovers into 27 points, didn't punt until the 9:52 mark of the fourth quarter, a kick erased by a roughing penalty on Oklahoma State that gave Texas a first down. Texas A&M 63, Louisiana Tech 13 COLLEGE STATION, Texas — D'Andre Hardeman ran for three touchdowns and Albert Connell had two big-play scores as Texas A&M went to its running game for a victory over Louisiana Tech. The Aggies (2-3) scored touchdowns on six of seven first-half possessions for a 42-3 halftime lead and scored twice in the first 2:27 of the third quarter for a 56-6 margin over the Bulldogs (3-3). The Aggies rushed 53 times for 425 y$rds and rested most of its starters midway in the third quarter. Sirr Parker gained 92 yards on 17 carries, Hardeman had 58 yards on 10 carries and Eric Bernard had 91 yards on six carries and two touchdowns. The leading rusher was freshman Dante Hall, who got 101 yards on 14 carries over the final 1 Vi quarters. Missouri 27, Southern Methodist 26 DALLAS — It wasn't a night Southern Methodist's Daniel Hernandez will want to remember. After previously missing a 37-yard field goal attempt and having two extra point tries blocked, the Mustang kicker hit the right upright with his 35-yard try as time expired. That allowed Missouri to escape with a one-point win. SMU quarterback Ramon Flanigan had scrambled for 21 yards to the Missouri 17 with 1:19 to play to set up the potential winning kick. Missouri nose tackle Donnell Jones who charged through to block Hernandez's extra- point attempts. The first resulted in two points when Clayton Baker picked up the ball and ran all the way to the opposite end zone. It cut the deficit to 6-2 just 3% minutes into the contest. The second block came with 7:02 to play, after Flanigan scored his second touchdown of the fourth quarter to cut a 27-13 deficit to a point. Missouri, of the Big 12 Conference, improved to 2-3. SMU of the Western Athletic Conference fell to 2-4. The Tigers' victory gave the Big 12 a split of its 12 games with the WAC in 1996. Texas Tech 45, Baylor 24 LUBBOCK, Texas — Byron Hanspard broke his own school record with 287 yards rushing — his sixth 200-yard-plus performance in seven games — while leading Texas Tech over. Hanspard, a junior, increased his rushing average to 222.4 yards, second best in the nation, and broke the single-game school record of 272 yards he set last month against Oklahoma State. Meanwhile, Texas Tech (3-2, 2-1 Big 12 Conference) gained what many considered a necessary victory to remain a factor in the Big 12 South Division. Baylor (3-1, 0-1), largely untested after a weak non-conference schedule, was utterly unable to stop the Red Raiders. T STATE COLLEGE Pittsburg State extends home winning streak By The Associated Press PITTSBURG — Zach Siegrist threw for two touchdowns and ran for a third as ninth- ranked Pittsburg State remained unbeaten at home in the last 58 games with a 31-16 victory Saturday over Truman State in a Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association game. Pittsburg State (3-1 overall, 3-0 MIAA) fell behind 10-0 in the first half when Kyle Fischer kicked a 25-yard field goal and James Ross recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for the Bulldogs (2-3, 2-1). But the Gorillas, 57-0-1 in their last 58 home games, tied the game on a 20-yard field goal by Josh Barcus and a 25-yard scoring pass from Siegrist to Jerry Ross. Justin Johnson scored on a 10-yard run with about seven minutes left in the third quarter to give Pittsburg State the lead for good. Emporia State 40, Washburn 35 TOPEKA — Brian Shay rushed for an MIAA record 361 yards and five touchdowns as Emporia State held off Washburn.
