Next game: Oct. 26 at Colorado Oklahoma knocks off Texas Sooners end seven-game losing streak with a bang, knock off No. 25 Longhorns in overtime, 30-27 By The Associated Press DALLAS — John Blake will never forget his first win as coach of Oklahoma — one of the biggest upsets in the 91-year history of the Red River classic with Texas. Reserve tailback James Allen scored on a 2- yard run in overtime Saturday as Oklahoma rallied from an 11-point deficit to shock No. 25 Texas 30-27 to trigger a wild celebration. "This win is really unexplainable," said Blake, an assistant with the Dallas Cowboys last season. "All I could think about is what we went through. "It's a tremendous relief in one sense because of my feeling for my kids. They needed to see some success for all the hard work." The win ended the Sooners' seven-game losing streak, longest in school history, and gave Blake his first victory. Blake broke down and was in tears as he left the field with his joyous team. The Sooners (1-4, 1-1 in the Big 12) were 22- point underdogs to the Longhorns (3-3, 2-1). Allen's TD sent the Sooners into an end zone celebration, with players piling on one another. Police guarded the Cotton Bowl goal posts and kept them from being torn down by the fans who made their way onto the field. "Lose or win I wanted to be a part of something," said Allen, who rushed for a career high 159 yards on 23 carries. "The road has been bumpy and rough but I kept my head up. I knew it would turn around some day. Today was the day." Allen, a senior who lost his starting job to freshman De'Mond Parker, ran for 11 and 8 yards to set up his winning touchdown. Phil Dawson had kicked a 43-yard field goal to put the Longhorns ahead 27-24 in overtime, where Oklahoma won the toss and decided to play defense first. Texas, which lost to Notre Dame and Virginia, was in shock. "It's a tough way to lose," Texas coach John Mackovic said. "We missed our chances to win it in the fourth quarter. We knew how good James Allen was and he showed it today." Oklahoma rallied from a 24-13 deficit to tie the game on Jeremy Alexander's 44-yard field goal with 2:26 left. Texas A&M 24, Iowa St. 21 AMES, Iowa — For 3V2 quarters, Albert Connell had been held in check. Then, just when it seemed as if he had disappeared, the Texas A&M receiver struck. Connell caught a pass behind the line of scrimmage and turned it into a 70-yard touchdown play that gave A&M the cushion it needed to beat Iowa State. The Aggies (3-3 overall, 1-1 Big 12) faced third-and-12 from their own 30 when quarterback Brandon Stewart flipped the ball to Connell. Connell wasn't touched as he wove through the secondary and had clear sailing T KANSAS CONFERENCE The Associated Press Oklahoma's Jarrall Jackson (19) Is swarmed by his teammates after scoring a second- quarter touchdown Saturday against Texas. The Sooners won in overtime, 30-27. Davis, who had been averaging 229 yards a game, was held to a season-low 130 in 39 carries. "We already made a Heisman (Trophy) hopeful in BYU's quarterback and we weren't intending to make another one this week," A&M linebacker Keith Mitchell said. "We wanted to shut him down today." Davis has 1,047 yards for the season.

Punter Shane Lechler contributed with a 76-yard boot that pinned Iowa State deep in its own territory late in the game. The big plays, plus stout defense against national rushing leader Troy Davis, helped the Aggies hold on in their first-ever visit to Iowa State (2-3,1-1) after being favored by 14 points. Nebraska 49, Baylor 0 LINCOLN, Neb. — Tom Osborne wasn't sure what to think after Nebraska lost to Arizona State last month. After Saturday's rout of Baylor, the coach has a better idea. "I was really shaken by the Arizona State game," Osborne said after his fifth-ranked Cornhuskers rolled up a season-high 669 yards against the Bears. "I didn't know whether we were just not a very good football team or whether that was kind of an anomaly. "I'm hopeful, and I think, that was probably not real characteristic of our football team." When the Sun Devils stunned the Huskers 19-0, Nebraska's hopes of a third straight national title seemingly disappeared. But in three victories since, the Huskers have outscored the opposition 153-12 and resemble the teams that won titles in 1994 and 1995. Against Baylor, Nebraska (4-1, 2-0 in the Big 12) had 491 yards rushing, with Damon Benning running for three touchdowns and DeAngelo Evans two as the Huskers built a 28-0 halftime lead. Scott Frost, who ran for a TD, was 8- of-15 for 178 yards, while the Huskers' defense held Baylor (3-2, 0-2) to 117 total yards. "I thought we played quite well, on both sides of the ball," Osborne said "I think we've got a good football team. I think we're playing well." Bethany overwhelms Bethel, 54-14 Swedes stay unbeaten in KCAC play behind potent offense that generates 528 yards passing By ARNE GREEN The Sallna Journal NEWTON - Score one for the system. Bethany College's wide-open passing game riddled Bethel's secondary for 528 yards Saturday night and rolled to a 54-14 Kansas Conference victory over the Threshers at Fischer Field. The victory gave Bethany, 3-1 overall, a share of the KCAC lead at 3-0. Bethel slipped to 3-2 with a 3-1 league record. "It worked big-time," said Bethany starting quarterback Jorge Munoz, who completed 23 of 29 passes KESSINGER for 395 yards and two touchdowns before leaving early in the third quarter. "It was only a matter of time before our offense got back in the shape it was last year. "Everybody was open and the line did a great job. I attribute it all to the system. Our T STATE COLLEGE system worked and that's what it's all about." The Swedes, who also had 142 yards rushing and 670 yards total offense, scored the game's first 47 points before Bethel broke through with 1:09 left in the third quarter. Bobby Lugo caught touchdown passes of 53 and 30 yards from Munoz in the first half. Michael Godwin rushed for 59 yards and three touchdowns, scoring from 7 yards and 1 yard in the first half and adding a 3-yarder in the third quarter. Backup quarterback Justin Bratt came on to complete all seven of his passes for 97 yards. He ran 9 yards for a touchdown to make it 47-0 and added a 37-yard scoring strike to Adam Chaney in the fourth quarter. Third-string quarterback Justin Carlson also was perfect, completing all three of his passes for 36 yards. "We felt we wanted to throw the ball," Bethany coach Ted Kessinger said. "The pass opens the run for us. "We were really encouraged that we were able to play a lot of people. We brought 76 people and played between 65 and 70." While Bethany moved the ball at will through the air, Bethel struggled offensively. The Threshers did manage 325 yards total offense -159 on the ground and 166 passing - but did not score until Troy Morris found Brandon Carter with a 25-yard touchdown pass late in the third quarter. "The thing we tried to do coming into the; game was to stay calm," said Bethel coach George Papageorgiou. "We wanted to overcome the Bethany mystique. But with Fall Fest (homecoming) and the excitement of the parents here, it made it hard to contain the players' enthusiasm. "When things didn't go our way, we didn't go flat, but we were in a bit of shock. Our offense moved the ball but we couldn't punch it in." Bethany's defense picked off three Morris passes, including two of the last three in the first half and the first one after intermission. "I thought our defense played well," Kessinger said. "The defense gives you field position and that's what they did. "I do believe, regardless of the score, that of the three teams we've played in the conference so far, Bethel is the strongest team." Bethany rolled to a 35-0 halftime lead with 407 yards total offense, 380 through the air. Munoz completed 22 of 27 first-half passes for 366 yards and two touchdowns, plus ran 1 yard for another. The Swedes had seven different receivers catch the ball in the half. Missouri Western upends Pittsburg State By The Associated Press ST.
