  ***  Vince Young, Texas, rushed for a career-high 267 yards and two scores and added two touchdown passes as the No. 2 Longhorns beat Oklahoma State 47-28.

  ***  Wendell Mathis, Fresno State, rushed for career-best 229 yards and three touchdowns, to lead the No. 22 Bulldogs to a 27-13 victory over Hawaii.


Josh Brown kicked a 49-yard field goal with 2:45 left and South Carolina held on to beat No. 23 Tennessee 16-15. The Gamecocks snapped a 12-game losing streak to the Volunteers and won for the first time ever in Knoxville.


Chris Barclay of Wake Forest rushed for 104 yards and two touchdowns to become the Demon Deacons' career leading rusher with 3,903 yards. He moved in front of James McDougald, who totaled 3,811 yards from 1976-79. It was the third 200-yard game of Barclay's career, leaving him tied with four others for second in Atlantic Coast Conference history. He is eighth on the conference's rushing list with 3,903 yards.


Chris Leak threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score, and No. 16 Florida used an impressive defensive performance to beat previously unbeaten No. 4 Georgia 14-10. The 16th-ranked Gators won for the 14th time in the last 16 meetings.


Top-ranked Southern Cal won its 30th straight game, routing Washington State 55-13. The Trojans tied Texas for the 11th-longest winning streak in major college football history. Only three teams have won as many as 30 in a row in the past 35 years. USC also has a 24-game winning streak at home and a 20-game streak against Pac-10 opponents. Both are school records.


Brandon Breazell caught a 23-yard TD pass from Drew Olson in overtime after No. 8 UCLA scored 21 points in the final 7:04 of regulation to stun Stanford 30-27. The Bruins had rallied from consecutive deficits against Washington, California and Washington State earlier in October.


Shyrone Carey ran for two scores and fellow backup tailback Justin Vincent added a TD run as No. 7 Louisiana State rolled past North Texas 56-3 in a game that had been postponed because of Hurricane Katrina. The Tigers won their fifth straight and their 13th consecutive non-conference game.


Nebraska's 31-24 loss to Oklahoma gave the Cornhuskers back-to-back home losses in the same season for the first time since 1968, when they lost three in a row.


D.J. Hall became the first Alabama receiver to have back-to-back games with at least 10 receptions. Hall finished with 11 catches for 157 yards in the Crimson Tide's 35-3 win over Utah State. Hall caught 10 balls for 139 yards last week against Tennessee.


Rutgers' 31-21 win over Navy clinched its first winning regular season since 1992. In winning its third straight and in starting 6-2 for the first time since 1979, Rutgers became bowl-eligible for the first time since '92.


First-year Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis extended his contract through the 2015 season. The 10-year agreement takes effect next season.


Boise State's 49-14 win over Nevada extended Division I-A's longest current home winning streak to 29 games. The Broncos also notched their 30th straight league win and sixth straight victory over the Wolf Pack. ... No. 20 Texas Christian beat San Diego State 23-20, the Horned Frogs' seventh straight win. San Diego State, knocked out of bowl eligibility, lost for the 19th straight time to a ranked team.


``This game came down to heart and hustle. We had more heart, and we out-hustled them.'' — defensive end Jeremy Mincey after Florida's 14-10 win over Georgia, handing the Bulldogs their first loss of the season.

``Since the first day I arrived at Notre Dame as head football coach, one of my primary goals was to be able to see this job through to the time my son, Charlie, would graduate from the University of Notre Dame and to stay in this position until I retire. By restructuring this contract, adding an additional five years, this allows me to accomplish that goal.'' — Notre Dame coach Charlie Weiss, on his contract extension through the 2015 season.
