The Oklahoma quarterback apologized after his offseason arrest in Arkansas. He apologized after planting an OU flag at midfield after the Sooners won at Ohio State early in the season. He apologized after a crotch-grabbing, curse-spewing sideline rant Saturday that apparently was so offending to delicate eyes that ESPN had to blur out his hand gestures and cover his mouth.
(TSX / STATS) -- COLUMBUS, Ohio -- No. 9 Ohio State made sure there were no slip-ups Saturday against overmatched Illinois. Now the Buckeyes can focus on rival Michigan and then the Big Ten title game.
The Buckeyes scored four touchdowns in the first 13 minutes and raced to a 52-14 victory over the Fighting Illini in a driving rainstorm at Ohio Stadium, securing a share of the Big Ten East Division title.
(TSX / STATS) -- SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly deterred fans of high-flying football from dissecting Saturday's game against Navy at length.
"I don't really have a lot to wow you with," Kelly said. "If you like games that require a grittiness to them and a toughness and resolve, you know, this is it. If you want to go see 62-52, go to your local Big 12 Network. It was just good, tough football."
(TSX / STATS) -- SEATTLE -- Struggling kicker Tristan Vizcaino atoned for an earlier miss and drilled a 38-yard field goal as time expired as No. 18 Washington scored twice in the final minute to rally for a 33-30 Pac-12 Conference victory over Utah on Saturday night.
Trailing 30-23, Washington (9-2, 6-2 Pac-12) forced a punt and got the ball back with 2:03 left at its own 39. Jake Browning threw three incompletions before hitting Andre Baccellia for 14 yards on fourth down.
(TSX / STATS) -- STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Saquon Barkley collected 224 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns as No. 10 Penn State beat Nebraska 56-44 in its final home game of the season Saturday afternoon.
Barkley, slowed in recent weeks after a strong start to the season, rushed 17 times for 158 yards and three scores, and caught six passes for 66 yards, helping the Lions improve to 9-2 and 6-2 in the Big Ten.
