USC coach Clay Helton was good-spirited when asked about the "noise" that has come as a result of the Trojans' 1-3 start. "I know the expectations of SC and I'm a realist," he said. "We're in a production-based business, if you don't win, especially at this level, there's going to be griping and it's well-deserved."

Houston QB Greg Ward Jr. has 10 games with at least one passing TD and one rushing TD since the start of 2015, tied with Lamar Jackson for 2nd-most in FBS over that span (Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer and Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes are tied with an FBS 11 such games since the start of last season).

Thomas gets UConn on the board

USC right tackle Zach Banner will be a game-time decision Saturday against Arizona State with an ankle injury. Coach Clay Helton said after practice Thursday that Banner is about 80 percent and if he is unable to play, both Chuma Edoga and Jordan Simmons will play.

How about that KU defense? Texas Tech lost a bit of its offensive edge with a 14-0 lead, but credit the Jayhawks -- big hits and they're getting after Mahomes. The Jayhawks got three consecutive stops, including an interception by Fish Smithson and a safety on a botched punt. It's 14-2 in Lubbock.

No slowing down Houston's Ward Jr.

Greg Ward Jr. threw his second TD pass of the second quarter, finding Steven Dunbar for 15 yards in the back of the end zone.

Greg Ward Jr.'s second-quarter TD run was his 25th TD run in the last two seasons, most of any FBS QB according to ESPN Stats and Information.

Houston increases lead on UConn

Dillon Birden shows some power by breaking a tackle and plunging in for 1-yard touchdown to give the Cougars a 14-0 lead over the Huskies.


Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Only 40 passing yards for Patrick Mahomes II on Texas Tech's second touchdown drive. That's got to be disappointing. In all seriousness, Tech is meeting almost no resistance from the Kansas secondary in the first quarter tonight. Mahomes hit 9 of 10 throws for 120 yards as the Red Raiders scored twice in the first five minutes.

Ward Jr. takes big hit, comes back into game

Houston's Greg Ward Jr.gets flattened by UConn's Junior Joseph after throwing an incomplete pass. He left the game but returned after missing one play.

Touchdown Bengals! That drive was all A.J. Green as he totals 3 catches for 77 yards and a TD to put Cincy up, 10-7.


TOUCHDOWN BENGALS! AJ Green makes a man miss and gets in for the score. Cincy leads Miami, 10-7.

Are the Dolphins trying to prove Xavien Howard's worth $15 million per year by having him man up across the field on A.J. Green? Help him.
