 STARS
-LSU Colt David became the leading scorer in school history with a 51-yard field goal in the second quarter of the Tigers' 52-38 loss to Georgia. David's kick gave the senior 320 points in his career, passing former LSU running back and current New England Patriot Kevin Faulk.
-North Carolina receiver Hakeem Nicks had three touchdown catches and ran for a score to help the Tar Heels beat No. 23 Boston College 45-24.
-Fresno State's Kevin Goessling kicked a 58-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Bulldogs to a 30-28 win over Utah State.
-Rutgers quarterback Mike Teel threw a school-record six touchdown passes, five in the first half, as the Scarlet Knights routed No. 17 Pittsburgh 54-34.

TEXAS TWO-STEP
lahoma State in Austin. The Longhorns needed a big defensive stand in the fourth quarter to overcome a pair of late mistakes by quarterback Colt McCoy. McCoy passed for 391 yards and two touchdowns but threw a rare interception that set up a field goal as Oklahoma State pulled within 28-24. He also fumbled on the Cowboys' 10 with just over five minutes left when Texas could have put the game away. Next up for the Longhorns: a trip to No. 8 Texas Tech, which improved to 8-0 with a 63-21 shellacking of No. 19 Kansas.

BOOMER SOONER
Oklahoma 55, Kansas State 28 - halftime. No, basketball season hasn't tipped off early in Norman. That was the incredible score after No. 4 Oklahoma frittered away a 28-7 second-quarter lead, then reeled off 27 points before everyone went to the dressing room for some oxygen. Oklahoma's 55 points were its most ever in the first half of a game and matched the school record for points in a half, set in the second half of a 76-0 shutout of - who else? - Kansas State in 1942. ``It was like a video game,'' said Ryan Broyles, who returned a punt for a TD during the onslaught.

TIGER RAG
LSU overcame two losses to win the national championship last season. Good luck trying that this year, Tigers. No. 11 LSU (5-2, 3-2 SEC) had its hopes for a repeat title evaporate in a 52-38 loss to ninth-ranked Georgia - in Death Valley, no less. It was the Tigers' second humiliation in three weeks. The first one was a 51-21 loss at Florida on Oct. 11.

IN A RUT
No offense to Rutgers. But it's hard to take the Big East seriously when co-leader Pittsburgh gets hammered by the 3-5 Scarlet Knights 54-34 - at home.

GAME OF THE WEAK
Kent State drubbed Miami of Ohio 54-21 in a game that left both teams 2-6.

BY THE NUMBERS
Purdue's 17-6 loss to No. 25 Minnesota was the Boilermakers' 18th straight loss to a ranked opponent, including four this season. The Boilermakers (2-6, 0-4) have lost five straight and are in danger of missing a bowl game in coach Joe Tiller's final season. ... It's not hard to figure out why Michigan stinks. The Wolverines have 20 touchdowns and 24 turnovers. In Saturday's 35-21 loss to Michigan State, the Wolverines scored three touchdowns but threw three interceptions and lost a fumble. ... Duke and Vanderbilt combined for 17 points and 13 punts in a game that was about as exciting as taking the SATs. The Blue Devils pulled out a 10-7 win in Nashville.

SPEAKING
ked Eagles' 45-24 loss to North Carolina.

``I had some pretty sick feelings when I saw 51 points scored on LSU two weeks ago.'' - Kentucky coach Rich Brooks after a 63-5 loss to No. 5 Florida, which had a week off after blowing out LSU.
