The Huskers won 24-10. Huskers turn back Tech Nebraska overcomes five turnovers, slows Hanspard for road win By The Associated Press LUBBOCK, Texas — The Nebraska Cornhuskers couldn't hold onto the ball — even on the play that put away upstart Texas Tech. In a contest of turnovers and tough defense, Damon Benning showed the way to victory for fifth-ranked Nebraska with two big fourth-quarter runs in a 24-10 victory Saturday. Benning returned a punt 51 yards midway in the period and two plays later scored on a 3-yard run on which he fumbled but recovered in stride. The Cornhuskers (5-1,3-0 Big 12) overcame five-turnovers, including four on fumbles, to notch an important conference road victory against the South Division leader. "We had a mistake or two but we were good overall," Nebraska coach Tom Osborne said. "I am disappointed in our offensive execution." The teams combined for 12 fumbles, with Nebraska accounting for seven. The score was tied 10-10 at the half, with the Red Raiders capitalizing on a fumble by Benning and a 7 : yard touchdown return of an interception by Robert Johnson off a pass from the end zone by Huskers quarterback Scott Frost. Frost scored the go-ahead TD on a 3-yard run 5'/2 minutes into the third quarter and Nebraska took control with its defense, forcing five fumbles and holding Division I-A rushing leader Byron Hanspard to less than half his 217-yard average. Hanspard also fumbled on Tech's first possession of each half, both miscues leading to Nebraska touchdowns. Hanspard's 107 yards on 31 carries still was the first time this T MAJOR BIG 12 STANDINGS North Division Conference Overall Colorado Nebraska Kansas State Kansas Iowa State Missouri W L 3 0 3 0 3 1 1 2 1 2 W L 5 1 5 1 6 1 3 3 2 4 2 4 0 3 South Division Conference Overall W L W L Texas 21 33 Oklahoma 21 24 Texas Tech 32 43 Texas A&M 12 34 Oklahoma State 13 43 Baylor 03 33 Saturday's Results Colorado 20, Kansas 7; Oklahoma State 28, Iowa State 27; Nebraska 24, Texas Tech 10; Kansas State 23, Texas A&M 20; Oklahoma 28, Baylor 24. season the Huskers had allowed a runner to gain 100 yards. "A bad ole finish for a pretty good start," Texas Tech coach Spike Dykes said. "They had us right where they wanted us. I am proud of our football team for not quitting." Oklahoma St. 28, Iowa St. 27 STILLWATER, Okla. — In a game that featured two of the nation's top running backs, Andre Richardson proved he's a pretty decent runner, too. Richardson, a junior who has been waiting his turn behind Oklahoma State's David Thompson, ran for a career-high 173 yards and scored two touchdowns in leading the Cowboys to a come- from-behind victory over Troy Davis and Iowa State. Davis was his usual, remarkable self, gaining 238 yards on 36 carries and scoring twice while becoming Iowa State's career rushing leader. But it was Richardson who was the difference after Thompson left the game with a leg injury with 158 yards. Richardson gained 151 of his yards in the second half, 120 in the fourth quarter. Oklahoma State (43, 1-3 Big 12) twice trailed by 17, then overcame its biggest deficit since beating Colorado 21-20 in 1979 after trailing 20-0. "He knows he's a big part of this offense and has been all year," coach Bob Simmons said of Richardson, who most often is used as a flanker. "He just stepped up and did an exceptional job." The 1-2 combination of Richardson and Thompson, along with the solid-play of quarterback Tone' Jones, allowed Oklahoma State to outgain the Cyclones 542-347. Jones was 14 of 21 passing for 179 yards and no interceptions. "Most of the third quarter and all of the fourth quarter, they dominated our defense," Iowa State coach Dan McCarney said. "I think you saw an inspired Oklahoma State team that took over. We couldn't slow them down, they knocked us off the ball and controlled the line of scrimmage." Oklahoma 28, Baylor 24 WACO, Texas — Justin Fuente threw three touchdown passes and ran for another score Saturday night to rally the Oklahoma Soon- ers from a 14-point deficit and a victory over the Baylor Bears. The Sooners, who overcame an 11-point lead to beat Texas 30-27 in overtime last Saturday, improved to 2-4 and 2-1 in the conference while Baylor dropped to 3-3 and 0-3. Fuente, a redshirt freshman, scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak in the third quarter and hit James Allen on an 11-yard touchdown pass with 11:39 remaining in the game to complete the comeback before 35,712 fans in Floyd Casey Stadium. Both touchdowns were set up by Baylor fumbles. Air Force upends Notre Dame Falcons turn Irish fumble in OT into Thompson's game-winning field goal By The Associated Press SOUTH .BEND, Ind. — Alex Pupich recovered Notre Dame quarterback Ron Powlus' fumble in overtime and Dallas Thompson kicked a 27-yard field goal as visiting Air Force stunned the eighth- ranked Irish 20-17 on Saturday. "All I remember was trying to keep my foot up so they wouldn't step on it," the barefoot kicker said of the postgame celebration. "So I had to hop around the field for about five minutes." Notre Dame got the ball first in overtime, but Powlus was hit by Joe Suhajda and had the ball stripped away. Air Force moved to V STATE the 8 to put Thompson in position for a 22-yard attempt. His kick was perfect, but Air Force was called for delay of game. Moved back 5 yards, Thompson again was perfect, and this time it counted as the Falcons beat the Irish for the first time since 1985. "He showed tremendous guts and courage," Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry said. "He has missed some long ones, but no short ones." Falcons quarterback Beau Morgan rushed for a season-high 183 yards and a touchdown. The senior also completed 5 of 11 passes for 51 yards. "We need to handle this with class," Irish coach Lou Holtz said. "Is it easy to take? No. We have no excuses. We have to come out and play." In another thrillers involving Top 25 teams, No. 4 Arizona State rallied past USC 48-35 in double overtime, while No. 14 Northwestern struck late to beat Wisconsin 34-30. Terry Battle's fourth touchdown of the game — a 25-yard run in the second overtime — and freshman Courtney Jackson's 85- yard fumble return sparked the 70 Sun Devils. "We took USC's best punch and didn't go down," Arizona Stae coach Bruce Snyder said. "This is a really special team. At Madison, Wis., Wisconsin had the ball on its own 38 with 1:33 left and needed only to to kneel down after three straight snaps. However, Mike Samuel twice handed off to Ron Dayne, who fumbled on the second rushing attempt. Steve Schnur then threw a 20- yard TD pass to D'Wayne Bates with 37 seconds left for Northwestern. LINDSBORG — Mike Godwin's prayer was answered. Godwin, a junior running back from McPherson, blew through Sterling's defense for 171 yards and four touchdowns as No. 15- ranked Bethany breezed to a 66-7 Homecoming victory Saturday at Anderson Field. With a gale-force wind wreaking havoc with the Swedes' NAIA Division II-best passing game, Godwin took and hoisted the Swedes' offense on his back. "I pray for wind," Godwin said. "The wind is why I got so many carries (18). The line handled the job up front." Quarterback Jorge Munoz, the nation's second-rated passer, was 12 of 17 for 189 yards and four touchdowns in two-and-a-half quarters of play. But Munoz seldom went to the air against the 40-mile-an-hour south wind. "We were grounded today," Munoz said. "It reassures us that we can run the ball when we have to. They (Sterling) were worried about the pass, but it was tough to stick with the pass on a day like this. "The holes were there," he said. "The line opened some big holes. Mike wasn't getting touched until he was five or six yards down field." The Swedes had 581 yards of offense — 321 rushing — compared to Sterling's 208 total. Bethany struck early and often. Godwin, who entered the game with 230 yards rushing, gave Bethany a 6-0 lead just 1 minute, 32 seconds into the game with a 4- yard run. Sterling quarterback Jesse Vincent fumbled on the first play of the game, giving Bethany the ball on the Warriors' 15-yard line. Following a Sterling punt, the Swedes made it 13-0 on a Munoz 7- yard touchdown pass to Frenchie Buckner. Another Sterling punt was followed by a six-play, 65-yard Bethany drive that culminated in Godwin's 17-yard touchdown run. Sterling's fourth punt preceded a three-play, 48-yard Bethany drive that ended on Munoz's 11-yard touchdown to Van Mortensen, making it 26-0 with 14 seconds left. In the first quarter. "Everything we wanted to do was successful," Godwin said. "They didn't stop anything." Munoz concurred. "We dominated up front," he said. "It seemed like I could stand back there forever, 10 seconds at a time. Everything worked today." Bethany led 32-6 at halftime, working against the wind in the second quarter. Sterling scored its lone touchdown with 7:36 left in the second quarter on Vincent's 41-yard touchdown pass to Darren Johnson. "They're a good football team," Sterling coach Bill Bauer said. "We knew Godwin is a good back. He was last year. "We wanted to run, but they made adjustments to stop our option game and veer. We're a young football team and we shot ourselves in the foot. And we had a lot of guys hurt on defense," he said. Godwin ran one yard for a touchdown and Munoz hit Buckner with a screen pass that went 55 yards for a touchown in the third quarter, making it 46-7. Bethany's reserves, working with the wind in the fourth quarter, tacked on three more TDs — quarterback Justin Bratt's four- yard run; Kyle Ortega's 39-yard touchdown pass from Justin Carlson; and running back Jeremy Patterson's 24-yard run. The lone negative for the Swedes was 15 penalties for 123 yards. "We'll be in trouble for that," Godwin said. "We'll be running on Monday, for sure." Just like he was on Saturday. Sapp, defense spark Washburris shutout By The Associated Press ROLLA, Mo. — Willie Sapp rushed for 110 yards and scored a touchdown as Washburn routed Missouri-Rolla 45-0 in MIAA action. Washburn (3-3, 3-2 in the MIAA) also got touchdowns from its defense and special teams — a 69-yard interception return from Ira Peoples and a 48-yard return of a blocked field goal by Chris Swirles. Emporla State 42, Southwest Baptist 7 BOLIVAR, Mo.— Brian Shay rushed for 214 yards and two touchdowns and scored a third time on one of Pete Jelovic's three TD passes as Emporia State breezed by winless Southwest Baptist. Ottawa 25, Tabor 7 OTTAWA — Rick Hoover scored on two 1- yard touchdowns and Ottawa recorded two safeties in its Kansas Conference win. Ottawa (1-5, 1-4 in the KCAC) trailed Tabor (0-6, 0-4) 7-2 at halftime. Bethel 26, Friends 21 NEWTON — Troy Morris threw for 207 yards and three touchdowns as Bethel held on to defeat Friends in Kansas Conference play. With Bethel holding a 14-9 lead after three quarters, the game was decided in a wild fourth quarter that saw both teams score twice. But neither team could convert their extra-point attempts. Southwestern 61, McPherson 13 McPHERSON — Dustin Donley and Silas Robertson both scored two touchdowns as Southwestern blasted McPherson in KCAC play. McPherson (1-5, 1-4 KCAC) jumped out to a 7-0 lead on a 44-yard run by Rudolph James in the first quarter, but Southwestern led 35-7 at halftime. Benedictine 33, MldAmerlca Nazarene 20 OLATHE — Eric Pitts scored twice and had 130 yards rushing and Toriano Pride added a touchdown and 113 yards as Benedictine won in Heart of America Athletic Conference play.
