Arkansas and Texas A&M are long gone from AT&T Stadium following their game Saturday night but the grounds crew is hard at work in the wee hours changing the field for the NFL game Sunday night in this very stadium as the Dallas Cowboys host the Chicago Bears.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Arizona State rallied to score 31 points in the fourth quarter and beat California on Saturday night. It's only the second time in the last five years that an FBS team scored at least 30 points in the fourth quarter to come from behind and win, and both such games came against Cal (also Arizona in 2014).

Stanford's defense closes out win

Bruins QB Josh Rosen is sacked by Cardinal LB Joey Alfieri, who forces a fumble. DE Solomon Thomas returns it for a 42-yard touchdown. The Cardinal pick up a 22-13 road win over the Bruins.

Washington didn't look like the nation's No. 9 team while slipping Arizona 35-28 in overtime, but that might be a mistaken impression because winning ugly is what good teams do. "We wanted to go through something that was going to be hard," Huskies coach Chris Petersen said. Washington's average margin of victory during its pillow-soft nonconference slate was 49-10. It hadn't trailed all season. So many things went wrong against the Wildcats, including four drives inside Arizona's 30-yard line that netted zero points. Still, the Huskies took Arizona's best shot, got out of their own way and won the game. Said quarterback Jake Browning, "I thought we showed a lot of grit in pushing through that stuff."

Jackson adds 7 TDs to Heisman résumé

Louisville QB Lamar Jackson tore up Marshall's defense on Saturday, throwing five touchdown passes and adding two rushing scores. He has 25 total scores this season.


Bobo makes incredible one-handed TD catch

Colorado QB Steven Montez completes a 31-yard TD pass to WR Bryce Bobo, who makes an amazing one-handed catch for the score.


ESPN Stats and Information  

Arizona State's 31 fourth-quarter points are the most by any FBS team in the fourth quarter this season.

Mark Dantonio's vanishing act

Watch as the Michigan State coach seems to disappear when one of his players walks in front of him.


Pick-six extends Sun Devils' lead

Cal QB Davis Webb has his pass picked off by LB Viliami Moeakiola, who returns it for a 28-yard touchdown. ASU extends its lead to 44-34 late in the fourth quarter.


ESPN Stats and Information  

Christian McCaffrey didn't score a touchdown Saturday, but that shouldn't necessarily be a surprise. He has played 12 true road games in college and hasn't scored a touchdown (despite gaining 1,111 yards from scrimmage). In 17 games at home or neutral sites, he has scored 21 touchdowns.

Back-and-forth go Sun Devils, Bears

ASU QB Manny Wilkins rolls out and tosses to an open Jay Jay Wilson for a 30-yard touchdown. The Sun Devils tie the Golden Bears 34-34 midway through the fourth quarter.


Big play gives Cal lead again

Golden Bears QB Davis Webb finds Tre Watson on a screen pass, and the sophomore RB scampers 74 yards into the end zone to give Cal the 34-27 lead in the fourth quarter.
