Wake Forest's field goal in N.C. State's win marked the only points the Wolfpack has given up this season. The last time N.C. State had three straight shutouts in a year was in 1965. . . . Clemson, ranked No.1 in defense last year, has allowed just 188 yards in two games. . . . Cincinnati has been outscored 152-32 in losses to Penn State, North Carolina and Bowling Green Tennessee freshman James "Little Man" Stewart gained 108 yards as the Vols piled up 516 yards against Mississippi State, which had been the leading defense in the SEC. ... Syracuse won against a Top 10 team for the first time since defeating No.1 Nebraska in 1984. . . . Rutgers defeated Northwestern, extending the Wildcats' winless streak on the road to 19 games.

Columbia hasn't beaten the Crimson in 13 games, going back to 1978. It was the Lions' 100th loss since Michael Sovern became the university's president after the 1979 season. In that span Columbia has had eight victories and two ties. . . .

The Huskies made it 29-21 on Ho-bert's 3-yard run with 7:26 remaining and clinched the victory when Jay Barry dashed 81 yards for a touchdown with 5:38 left. "It doesn't get much better than this," Washington coach Don James said. "We beat a great opponent on the road on national TV. We overcame adversity and came from behind. What else is there?" Hobert completed 23 of 40 passes for 283 yards as the Huskies handed Nebraska (2-1) its sixth straight loss against a ranked team. "There were a lot of times in the first half I felt like screaming out there," said Hobert, whose team trailed 14-6 at halftime. "The key thing about being a quarterback is that you have to show confidence and lead the team. Without being cocky, I think I did that in the second half." The loss added to the Cornhusk-ers' growing reputation as a team that can't win the big game. Nebraska has lost four straight bowl games and hasn't beaten a ranked opponent since 1988. "I don't want you guys to print that we can't win big games," quarterback Keithen McCant said. "We'll play hard and come back and win this year."

"I don't know that we wore them down, but I feel we're a great conditioned team," Bryant said. "We run everything hard in practice. We practice five quarters; most teams practice four." Washington pulled to 14-9 on Travis Hanson's 43-yard field goal midway through the third period, but Nebraska extended its lead to 21-9 on Derek Brown's 2-yard TD run with 5:32 left in the quarter after Mike Anderson recovered a fumbled punt.
