Dusty Bonner, who became Kentucky's starter when Tim Couch left early for the NFL, passed for 304 yards and five touchdowns, two of them to Dougie Allen, as the visiting Wildcats beat Indiana, 44-35, yesterday.
Antwaan Randle El ran for three touchdowns and passed for one for the Hoosiers (1-2), but had three passes intercepted, two in the closing minutes.
Randle El's 34-yard scoring pass to Levron Williams pulled Indiana within a touchdown with 3 minutes 17 seconds to go. The Hoosiers got the ball back on a fumble, but a pass was intercepted by Eric Kelly. After Marc Samuel's third field goal, a 34-yarder, Matt Layow intercepted another pass by Randle El and the Wildcats (2-1) ran out the final 49 seconds.
Bonner, who was redshirted last year, was 24 for 31, and the career-high five touchdown passes gave him 12 in three games this season.
VILLANOVA 26, U-MASS. 21: Ducarmel Augustin ran for a career-high 122 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown, and Villanova's defense foiled a late Minutemen drive deep to preserve the home win over the defending Division I-AA national champions.
COLORADO 51, KANSAS 17: In Boulder, Colo., Mike Moschetti threw two touchdown passes before leaving the game with a knee injury, and Jeremy Aldrich kicked a school-record five field goals.
OKLAHOMA 41, BAYLOR 10: Josh Heupel set team single-game records for completions, attempts, passing yards and total offense as the host Sooners won the Big 12 opener for both teams. Heupel was 37 of 54 for 420 yards and three touchdowns for Oklahoma (2-0). He had set school marks for completions (31) and touchdowns (5) and had tied the record for yards (341) in last week's 49-0 victory over Division I-AA Indiana State.
IDAHO 28, WASHINGTON ST. 17: In Pullman, Wash., third-string quarterback Greg Robertson came off the bench to throw three second-half touchdown passes. Even though the game was played at WSU's Martin Stadium, it was officially an Idaho home game. That's because the Vandals rented Martin for all their home games this season as they try to average at least 17,000 fans per game to remain in NCAA Division 1-A.
MISSISSIPPI ST. 29, OKLAHOMA ST. 11: Freshman Dontae Walker rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown as the host Bulldogs won a game marred by 12 turnovers -- six by each team -- and 195 yards in penalties.
EAST CAROLINA 21, SOUTH CAROLINA 3: David Garrard ran for a touchdown and passed for another as East Carolina ruined Coach Lou Holtz's home debut. South Carolina (0-3) has lost 13 straight, the country's second-longest streak behind Kent's 16 in a row. Holtz hadn't opened with three losses since his second year as coach, in 1970 at William & Mary.
MARSHALL 35, BOWLING GREEN 16: In Huntington, W. Va., Chad Pennington threw four touchdowns passes for the second straight week. Marshall (3-0, 1-0 Mid-American Conference) set an all-divisions record with its 104th victory this decade, surpassing the mark of 103 shared by Alabama during the 1970s and Nebraska in the 1980s. Marshall moved from Division I-AA to I-A in 1997. Pennington completed 15 of 31 passes for 257 yards with one interception.
