Texas Tech mauls No. 5 W. Virginia;

No. 13 Oklahoma rips No. 15 Texas

Seth Doege passed for six touchdowns, plus a career-high 504 yards, and Texas Tech's defense shut down Geno Smith and No. 5 West Virginia as the unranked Red Raiders upset the Mountaineers 49-14 on Saturday in their most lopsided victory ever over a top five team. Tech's defense consistently stymied West Virginia's offense. Heisman Trophy hopeful Smith completed 29 of 55 passes for 275 yards but couldn't get the ball in the end zone. Tech's offense had no such trouble.

"When you don't have a pass rush (hurrying you) it's a lot easier to make your reads," said Doege. He had TD passes of 39, 19, 16, 2, 29 and 7 yards and Tech (5-1, 2-1) had 18 plays of 15 yards or more while the defense was shutting down the Mountaineers (5-1, 2-1).

"Those guys did a great job of attacking us," Smith said. "They attacked us the entire game."

No. 13 Oklahoma 63, No. 15 Texas 21 - Damien Williams broke off a 95-yard TD run for the longest rush in Red River Rivalry history, a series that goes back more than a century, and Blake Bell powered his way for four TDs as Oklahoma pulverized Texas in Dallas.

No. 6 Kansas State 27, Iowa State 21 - Quarterback Collin Klein ran for 105 yards and three TDs to carry the visiting Wildcats (6- 0, 3-0 Big 12) to victory. KSU held the Cyclones (4-2, 1-2) to 231 yards of offense. Iowa State still had a chance for the game- winning drive from its own 3-yard line with 2:17 left, but the Wildcats stopped the Cyclones on downs.

No. 8 Ohio State 52, Indiana 49 - Braxton Miller threw for 211 yards with two TDs and ran 23 times for 149 yards - his third straight 100-yard game - to help the Buckeyes (7-0, 2-0 Big Ten) win a wild one on the road. They built a 52-34 lead midway through the fourth quarter, then withstood a furious rally by the Hoosiers. Indiana scored its second late TD, this with 1:21 left, then got a 2- point conversion to pull within three points. …
