Carlton Jones ran for 225 yards and five touchdowns and Army rallied to beat South Florida, 42-35, last night in Tampa for its first winning streak in seven years.
Army (2-4, 2-3 Conference USA) snapped a school-record 19-game losing streak with a 48-29 win over Cincinnati on Oct. 9. The Black Knights last won consecutive games in 1997, when they beat Rutgers and Colgate.
Army also snapped a nine-game road losing streak and ended a 12-game losing streak in night road games that dated from a 41-14 victory at Kansas State in 1987.
Army's Zac Dahman finished was 16 for 27 for 202 yards and one touchdown.
South Florida quarterback Pat Julmiste scored on a one-yard run in the third quarter to give the Bulls a 21-7 lead. He completed 10 of 23 passes for 116 yards and rushed for 90 yards on 20 carries.
* PITT 20, BOSTON COLLEGE 17: Josh Cummings kicked a 27-yard field goal to give the host Panthers the lead on the first possession of overtime, and cornerback Mike Phillips then forced a fumble to preserve the win. Boston College is 4-2, 1-1 in the Big East. Pitt 4-2, 2-1.
* NEBRASKA 59, BAYLOR 27: Joe Dailey became the first Cornhuskers quarterback to throw for more than 300 yards and tied a school record with five touchdown passes as host Nebraska bounced back from the worst loss in its history.
Dailey was 13 for 20 for 342 yards, breaking the previous record of 297 yards set by Dave Humm against Wisconsin in 1973.
Nebraska (4-2, 2-1 Big 12) desperately needed a win after getting embarrassed in a 70-10 loss to Texas Tech last week.
* COLORADO 19, IOWA STATE 14: Mason Crosby kicked four field goals -- one a school-record 60-yarder and another from 54 yards -- and the host Buffaloes took advantage of the Cyclones' shaky special teams to hold on for the victory. It was Iowa State's 13th straight conference loss.
Colorado (4-2, 1-2 Big 12) started sophomore James Cox at quarterback in place of Joel Klatt, then switched back after Cox threw an interception late in the second quarter. It didn't seem to matter. Klatt threw two interceptions and Colorado managed just 123 yards in the second half.
Good thing Crosby was around.
He kicked the 60-yarder in the second quarter and added the 54-yarder as time expired in the first half, becoming the first Colorado player with two 50-yarders in a game. Crosby also hit from 28 yards in the first quarter and 33 in the fourth to put Colorado up 19-7.
Iowa State fell to 2-4, 0-3.
* RUTGERS 16, TEMPLE 6: Jeremy Ito kicked three field goals and Ryan Hart threw a late touchdown pass to help the Scarlet Knights win an error-filled game in Piscataway, N.J.
Rutgers (4-2, 1-1) won despite committing five turnovers and failing to score a touchdown against the Big East's worst defense until the final three minutes.
The Scarlet Knights instead relied on Ito, who connected from 43, 27 and 24 yards, and on a defense that sacked Temple quarterback Walter Washington six times.
Ryan Lux kicked field goals of 37 and 38 yards for Temple (1-6, 0-2).
* GEORGIA TECH 24, DUKE 7: In Atlanta, P.J. Daniels rushed for 114 yards and threw the first touchdown pass of his career, and the Yellow Jackets' defense delivered another strong effort.
Daniels rushed for more than 100 yards for the third time this season. Freshman Calvin Johnson caught two touchdown passes, including one from Daniels, for Georgia Tech (4-2, 3-2 ACC).
Johnson finished with six receptions for 92 yards.
Tailback Cedric Dargan started for Duke (1-5, 0-3) after missing four games with a leg injury, but he was shut down as Tech's defensive front dominated the line of scrimmage.
* CLEMSON 35, UTAH STATE 6: Reggie Merriweather had two of the Tigers' four rushing touchdowns and host Clemson snapped a four-game losing streak.
The Tigers (2-4) came into the season ranked in the top 25, yet have fallen near the bottom of the ACC during their month-long slide. The team hoped a return home -- it hadn't played at Death Valley since Sept. 11 -- and a struggling opponent in Utah State (2-5) might be just the thing to revive its fading bowl hopes.
Tiger defenders had 11 sacks, the most in a game in Coach Tommy Bowden's six seasons, and held Utah State to minus-20 yards rushing.
* TOLEDO 31, OHIO 13: Bruce Gradkowski ran for a touchdown and passed for another to lead the host Rockets.
Nigel Morris got the Rockets (5-2, 4-0 Mid-American Conference) on the board early when he picked up a fumble and rumbled 26 yards for a touchdown less than five minutes into the game.
Ryan Hawk came off the bench to throw a four-yard scoring pass to Corey Logan for the only touchdown by Ohio (3-4, 1-3).
Gradkowski completed 26 of 37 passes for 285 yards and an 11-yard touchdown pass to Lance Moore. Gradkowski also ran 11 times for 30 yards, scoring on a one-yard plunge early in the second half.
* MEMPHIS 49, TULANE 24: DeAngelo Williams rushed for 132 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Tigers used a third-quarter burst to win in Memphis.
Darron White added a pair of scores for the Tigers (5-1, 2-1 Conference USA), including a 60-yard punt return, as Memphis scored three touchdowns in the third quarter to pull away from the Green Wave (1-4, 0-3).
* SOUTH CAROLINA 12, KENTUCKY 7: Fourth-string quarterback Michael Rathe threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Troy Williamson with 1:28 left, lifting the Gamecocks to the road win.
South Carolina (5-2, 3-2) committed five turnovers, one more than Kentucky (1-5, 0-3 SEC).
* LOUISIANA TECH 41, SOUTHERN METHODIST 10: In Dallas, Ryan Moats rushed for 186 yards and three touchdowns, and Matt Kubik passed for 303 yards and two scores as the Bulldogs snapped a five-game road losing streak. Louisiana Tech is 4-3, 3-0 in the Western Athletic Conference. SMU is 1-6, 1-3.
* OREGON 28, ARIZONA 14: Terrence Whitehead ran for three touchdowns to lift the Ducks at home.
Demetrius Williams had nine catches for 153 yards for Oregon (3-3, 2-1 Pacific-10). Arizona (1-5, 0-3) dropped its fifth straight and hasn't won since its season opener against Northern Arizona.
