Facing a 17-point deficit and mired in a two-game losing streak, visiting Texas Christian turned to ailing quarterback Brandon Hassell.
Hassell responded by leading the Horned Frogs to a last-minute score for a 21-17 victory over Army last night.
Lonta Hobbs scored on a two-yard run, his second touchdown, with 41 seconds left to seal the victory and extend Army's losing streak to 19 games, the longest in the nation.
Hassell, who replaced an ineffective Kyle Kummer, completed 14 of 23 passes for 158 yards and one touchdown for the Horned Frogs (3-2, 1-1).
TCU scored 21 straight points to beat an Army team that has not won at home since edging Tulane, 42-37, on Oct. 27, 2001.
Hobbs, who finished with 106 yards despite being limited to 11 yards in the first half, capped an 11-play, 62-yard game-winning drive.
"It wasn't pretty for us, but you have to give Army a lot of credit," Coach Gary Patterson said. "They haven't won many football games, but they played hard and gave it everything they had and they just about got us."
Carlton Jones ran for 108 yards and a touchdown for Army (0-4, 0-2). Zac Dahman, starting his first game for the Black Knights this season, was 12 of 26 for 214 yards.
* NEBRASKA 14, KANSAS 8: Cory Ross ran for 107 yards and scored two touchdowns and the Cornhuskers survived four turnovers and two missed field goals to win at home.

* STANFORD 27, WASHINGTON 13: J.R. Lemon ran for a career-best 162 yards and three touchdowns and the host Cardinal snapped a six-game losing streak against the Huskies.

Stanford got just its third victory over Washington (0-4, 0-2) in the schools' last 23 meetings, and the first since 1994.
* VANDERBILT 31, MISSISSIPPI STATE 13: Jay Cutler ran for one touchdown and threw for another as the host Commodores snapped a 14-game losing streak against Southeastern Conference West Division teams.

* IOWA 38, MICHIGAN STATE 16: Drew Tate passed for 340 yards and a touchdown and set up two other scores with long completions to lead the Hawkeyes at home.
Iowa (3-2, 1-1) has struggled on offense most of the year, but Tate's passing helped Iowa amass a season-high 464 yards and break a two-game losing streak.
Jermelle Lewis ran 47 yards for an Iowa touchdown before leaving the game with what appeared to be a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. His replacement, Marques Simmons, scored on two short runs.
The Hawkeyes jumped to a 14-0 lead with two 80-yard drives in the first quarter and kept Michigan State (2-3, 1-1) out of the end zone until Drew Stanton scored on a one-yard run with 4:24 left.
* SOUTH CAROLINA 20, ALABAMA 3: Backup quarterback Syvelle Newton rushed for two third-quarter touchdowns and the visiting Gamecocks intercepted four passes to secure the win.

Alabama (3-2, 1-2) has lost two straight.
* DUKE 28, THE CITADEL 10: Mike Schneider gave the host Blue Devils their first consistent game at quarterback this season.
