No. 14 Kansas State hangs on to beat No. 11 Oklahoma 31-30

NORMAN, Okla. — Michael Hunnicutt missed a 19-yard field goal late as No. 14 Kansas State held off No. 11 Oklahoma 31-30 on Saturday afternoon.

Oklahoma, trailing by a point in the fourth quarter, drove to the Kansas State 1-yard line, but couldn’t punch the ball in. Hunnicutt then missed the short field goal that would have put the Sooners ahead with 3:53 remaining.

Kansas State (5-1, 3-0 Big 12) took possession and ran out the clock.

Hunnicutt, touted as an All-America candidate before the season, missed a total of two short field goals and had an extra point blocked.

Jake Waters passed for 225 yards and two touchdowns for the Wildcats, who defeated the Sooners 24-19 two years ago on their previous trip to Norman.

Oklahoma’s Sterling Shepard tied a school record with 15 catches for 197 yards and Trevor Knight passed for 318 yards and three touchdowns for Oklahoma (5-2, 2-2).

Clint Trickett, West Virginia upset sloppy No. 4 Baylor

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Clint Trickett threw three touchdown passes and West Virginia surprised sloppy No. 4 Baylor 41-27 Saturday.

The Mountaineers (5-2, 3-1 Big 12) earned their first win against a top-five opponent since the Fiesta Bowl after the 2007 season.

West Virginia sacked Baylor’s Bryce Petty four times and limited the Bears to one touchdown after halftime.

Baylor was penalized 18 times for a Big 12-record 215 yards. Seven were for pass interference.

Trickett went 23 of 35 for 322 yards, his eighth straight 300-yard game going back to last season.

Baylor (6-1, 3-1) couldn’t overcome a double-digit deficit as it did in a 61-58 victory against TCU last week.

Booker’s three touchdowns lead No. 20 Utah past Oregon State in 2OT

CORVALLIS, Ore. — Utah running back Devontae Booker said he hadn’t had “video-game stats” like this since high school.

Booker ran for 229 yards and three touchdowns, including a 19-yard dash in the second overtime that gave No. 20 Utah a 29-23 victory against Oregon State on Thursday night.

Booker also ran for a 15-yard score in the first overtime to put Utah (5-1, 2-1 Pac-12) in front 23-16. The Beavers (4-2, 1-2) answered with Sean Mannion’s 2-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Villamin on fourth down to force another period.

Trevor Romaine, whose 49-yard field goal as time expired in regulation tied the game at 16, attempted a 37-yard field goal that went wide right, giving the ball back to Utah for the game-winning drive.

It was Booker’s third straight game with more than 150 yards rushing for the Utes, off to their best start since winning their first eight games in 2010. Utah has won all four of its road games this season.

Mannion threw a 72-yard touchdown pass to Villamin early in the fourth quarter to put Oregon State in front 13-9.

But the Utes mounted a comeback and Booker ran 53 yards to the Oregon State 6. On fourth down, he plunged into the end zone with 4:20 left for a 16-13 lead.

Romaine’s 49-yard kick sent the game to overtime.

Mannion threw for 272 yards and two touchdowns. He surpassed former USC quarterback Carson Palmer (11,818 yards) for second on the Pac-12’s career list for yards passing with 12,014. He trails only former Trojan Matt Barkley, who had 12,327.
