Mannion connected with Brandin Cooks on a 20-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the second half to give the Beavers a 10-0 lead then turned it over to the Oregon State (1-0) defense that forced two turnovers and held Ball to 61 yards rushing.

NO. 2 USC 42, SYRACUSE 29: At East Rutherford, N.J., Matt Barkley threw a career-best six touchdown passes, and Robert Woods was spectacular with 200 all-purpose yards and two scores.

NO. 3 LSU 41, WASHINGTON 3: At Baton Rouge, La., Alfred Blue rushed for 101 yards, including a 21-yard score, and No. 3 LSU racked up 242 yards on the ground.

NO. 4 OREGON 42, FRESNO STATE 25: At Eugene, Ore., Kenjon Barner ran for a career-best 201 yards, and scored three touchdowns. But he made his statement with his final TD, running the ball nine times before a 16-yard dash into the end zone with 3:51 left in the game. It was Oregon's only touchdown of the second half.

UCLA 36, NO. 17 NEBRASKA 30: At Pasadena, Calif., Brett Hundley passed for 305 yards and four touchdowns in an outstanding Rose Bowl debut and Datone Jones sacked Taylor Martinez for a tiebreaking safety with 8:44 to play.

SACRAMENTO STATE 30, COLORADO 28: At Boulder, Colo., Colorado didn't think they'd win in a walk.

They didn't think they'd lose to a walk-on, either.

Edgar Castaneda's 30-yard field goal as time expired gave Sacramento State a stunning win — and earned him a scholarship in the process.

WASHINGTON STATE 24, EASTERN WASHINGTON 20: At Pullman, Wash., Jeff Tuel threw a pair of touchdown passes to Isiah Myers as Washington State hung on in the home debut of head coach Mike Leach.
