(TSX / STATS) -- UCLA fired football coach Jim Mora on Sunday, one day after the Bruins lost to rival USC.

Mora was 46-30 in six seasons at the school. He was relieved of his duties despite having four seasons remaining on his contract, which was extended prior to the 2016 campaign.

The Bruins are 5-6 with a home game remaining against California. Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch will serve as interim coach.


Mayfield apologizes for latest antics

(TSX / STATS) -- Baker Mayfield apologized. Again.

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.


No. 2 Miami gets last 30, tops UVa 44-28

(TSX / STATS) -- MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Coming off two emotional wins over Virginia Tech and Notre Dame, Miami looked ripe for an upset here Saturday afternoon.

Virginia came near to pulling it off.


Badgers get by Michigan, improve to 11-0

(TSX / STATS) -- MADISON, Wis. -- Forget that Alex Hornibrook has thrown interceptions in eight straight games.

Ohio State cruises to Big Ten East crown

(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.

No. 7 Georgia bounces back, rips UK

(TSX / STATS) -- ATHENS, Ga. -- Nick Chubb had several reasons for deciding to come back to Georgia for his senior year.

One was to help give this year's crop of seniors a sendoff they wouldn't forget. Saturday's 42-13 rout of Kentucky certainly qualified.


No. 8 Irish rebound, rally to beat Navy

(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."


Washington scores 10 in last :58 to win

(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.
