Okla. St. continues march toward Bedlam; Ohio St. embraces the run
Still, if the Cowboys can make it to Dec. 3 undefeated, it will be quite a feat. They've already beaten Texas A&M and Texas on the road, and they still must beat Missouri and Texas Tech on the road and Kansas State in Stillwater.
Meanwhile, Texas looked a little better offensively against a non-elite defense. The Longhorns scrapped the two-quarterback system and went with David Ash the entire way, but the real production came from freshman tailback Malcolm Brown, who gained 135 yards on 19 carries and scored two touchdowns. Mack Brown has wanted to turn Texas into a power running team since Colt McCoy left. It seems he now has the back to do that. Unfortunately for the Longhorns, they're still in the middle of the pack in the Big 12.
All three of LSU's second-half possessions lasted at least 6:08 and ended in a touchdown. The Tigers will keep using two quarterbacks until it doesn't work. Saturday, Jarrett Lee started and completed 10 of 14 passes for 115 yards and two touchdowns and no interceptions, while Jordan Jefferson threw only three times but ran 14 times for 73 yards and a touchdown.
Meanwhile, Virginia is 4-2. Before the Mike London Coach of the Year bandwagon gets cranked up, bear in mind that the Cavaliers' win total includes squeakers against Indiana and Idaho. Still, a win against Georgia Tech can do wonders for a young team's confidence.
