Top 25 Roundup: Stanford Loses at Northwestern

Article excerpt

No. 11 Notre Dame beats Texas on both sides of the ball

Malik Zaire passed for 313 yards in his first home start, and No. 11 Notre Dame held Texas to 163 yards of total offense in a 38-3 victory Saturday night.

Zaire was 19-of-22 passing with three touchdowns, including a 66- yard scoring strike to Will Fuller.

Fuller had two touchdown catches, Chris Brown had one scoring catch, and freshman Josh Adams ran for a pair of TDs, including 14- yard score on his first career carry.

Notre Dame took advantage of an inexperienced Longhorns squad starting three players who were in high school a year ago, amassing 527 yards of total offense.

Mayfield set a school record for yards passing in a season opener, surpassing the previous mark of 363 yards by Sam Bradford in 2007. The walk-on transfer from Texas Tech won the starting job in a preseason battle with last year's starter, Trevor Knight.

Mixon, a redshirt freshman who was suspended last season after punching a woman in the face at a restaurant, caught a 76-yard touchdown pass from Mayfield early in the third quarter.

Northwestern 16, No. 21 Stanford 6 * Freshman Clayton Thorson ran for a 42-yard touchdown while playing turnover-free ball at quarterback, Justin Jackson added 134 yards rushing, and Northwestern beat Stanford.

Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan had a difficult afternoon, going 20 of 35 with 155 yards and an interception. …
