Iowa State nearly pulled off the biggest upset of the day as it took a 10-3 lead over No. 2 Oklahoma into the fourth quarter. The Sooners made only one good drive, but it produced the winning points. On the play's final drive, with just more than three minutes left, Oklahoma quarterback Danny Bradley appeared trapped on an option play. But just before he was smashed by three defenders, Bradley pitched back to Spencer Tillman, who went seven yards to score.

Florida State , ranked 15th, got its weekly great special teams play from Joe Wessel, who ran with a blocked punt 10 yards for a touchdown. Shortly thereafter, Jesse Solomon blocked a punt and covered the ball in the end zone

Washington State , trailing by 42-14, got five touchdowns from Rueben Mayes and beat Stanford, 49-42, as the Cardinals ran out of downs on the Cougar six with eight seconds remaining.

In another Pac-10 contest, Southern Cal got a 31-yard field goal from Frank Jordan in the third period to beat Arizona , 17-14. And Arizona State's Jeff Van Raaphorst, who hadn't played in four games, threw four touchdown passes to lead his team to a 45-10 victory over Oregon State.
