Oklahoma State fullback Derek Branson blocks the first-quarter punt of Texas Tech’s Ryan Erxleben. The Cowboys take over at the Red Raiders 15 and score soon after for a 21-0 lead.

LUBBOCK, Texas — Clint Chelf threw for two touchdowns and a season-high 211 yards and ran for two touchdowns as No. 18 Oklahoma State bet No. 15 Texas Tech 52-34 Saturday.

Desmond Roland added three touchdown runs for the Cowboys a week after getting four against Iowa State.

Texas Tech has lost two straight since a 7-0 start.

Up 28-24, Oklahoma State held on Texas Tech's first second-half possession. Josh Stewart returned the punt 46 yards to the Red Raiders 12, setting up the last of Roland's touchdowns.

Texas Tech went three-and-out, and Chelf made it 42-24 when he took a quarterback draw 67 yards for a touchdown.

Ohio State starts quickly, routs Purdue

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer thought his team needed a pregame wakeup call. The Buckeyes answered it: interception return for a touchdown; two plays, touchdown; six plays, touchdown; two plays, touchdown. And that was just during the first quarter.

Cornerback Doran Grant returned an interception for a touchdown on the second play from scrimmage and Braxton Miller threw for 233 yards and four touchdowns as No. 4 Ohio State extended the longest win streak in Division I-A to 21 with a 56-0 rout of Purdue.

"I saw not necessarily a sleepy look, but I just didn't like," Meyer said, "so we brought them in here and kind of rattled them up a little bit."

The loss matched the worst in school history, joining 56-0 to Iowa on Oct. 28, 1922, and 56-0 to Chicago on Nov. 9, 1907.

No. 17 UCLA 45, Colo. 23: Brett Hundley threw for two touchdowns and ran for two for the host Bruins, who rebounded from road losses to Stanford and Oregon. After two fruitless drives and a loss on the first play of the third, UCLA's offense heard boos. But on the next play, Hundley delivered a long strike down the middle to Devin Fuller, who caught the ball in heavy coverage, kept his feet and went in for a 76-yard score and 7-3 lead. Up 21-13, UCLA opened the second half with a 12-play, 70-yard drive capped by Hundley's 1-yard touchdown run.

No. 21 Northern Ill. 63, UMass 19: Jordan Lynch ran for 119 yards and four touchdowns and threw for a touchdown in just more than a half of play as the visiting Huskies remained unbeaten. Northern Illinois scored touchdowns on its first five possessions and six of its seven first-half possessions. Lynch, also 10-of-14 for 160 yards, scored on runs of 6, 25 and 19 yards in the first quarter. "I'm a quarterback first," said Lynch, who entered the game third in I-A with 1,031 rushing yards. "I don't like to run first. But I feel like if I'm going to force something, I'd rather just use my legs and find the hole."

No. 22 Wisconsin 28, Iowa 9: James White ran for 132 yards and two late touchdowns for the visiting Badgers. Cornerback Darius Hillary's interception at the Hawkeyes 20 in the third quarter set up a touchdown that put Wisconsin up 14-6. Defensive end Pat Muldoon's interception at the Hawkeyes 25 with 7:43 left set up White's 11-yard touchdown that made it 21-9. After a three-and-out, Wisconsin drove 76 yards, capped by White's 2-yard run with 1:35 left. "The turnovers were huge for us," Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen said. "They kept on fighting and battling, and we were fortunate to get some points out of it."

Around the nation

Air Force 42, Army 28: Anthony LaCoste ran for three touchdowns and 263 yards (12 shy of the academy record) for the host Falcons, who ended a seven-game skid. Army's loss means Navy will keep the Commander in Chief's Trophy, the round-robin among the three service academies, even if Army beats Navy on Dec. 14. Navy beat Air Force on Oct. 5. If all three finish 1-1, the previous season's winner — in this case Navy — retains it.

Notre Dame 38, Navy 34: Tarean Folston's 1-yard touchdown run with 3:47 left lifted the host Irish. After the score, Navy failed on fourth and 4 from the Notre Dame 31. Notre Dame (7-2) has clinched its fourth straight winning season, the first time that has happened since 1995-98.

Penn St. 24, Illinois 17 OT: Christian Hackenberg hit Kyle Carter for a 15-yard touchdown, then safety Ryan Keiser's interception in the end zone won it for the host Nittany Lions. Penn State's Sam Ficken made a 35-yard field goal with 41 seconds left to force overtime.

Nebraska 27, N'western 24: Jordan Westerkamp caught a tipped Hail Mary pass with no time left for the host Cornhuskers. Jeff Budzien's 21-yard field goal put the Wildcats up with 1:20 left. Nebraska's winning drive included running back Ameer Abdullah catching a short pass and stretching to convert a fourth and 15.

Minnesota 42, Indiana 39: Philip Nelson's 50-yard touchdown pass with 3:06 lifted the visiting Gophers. It came on the series after the Hoosiers, down 35-13 in the third quarter, took the lead.

Texas 35, Kansas 13: Malcolm Brown ran for 119 yards and four touchdowns for the host Longhorns, who have won five in a row since losing to BYU and Mississippi in consecutive weeks.
