Texas snaps Red River losing skid

(Continued)

LSU, which came in averaging 45.5 points, had a much harder time finding the end zone against a Florida defense rated among the nation’s best, but 1-yard touchdown runs by fullback J.C. Copeland and freshman reserve quarterback Anthony Jennings were enough for the Tigers (6-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference).

After yielding 44 points in its only loss of the season at Georgia two weeks ago, the LSU defense kept an opponent out of the end zone for the first time this season.

Tyler Murphy passed for 115 yards for the Gators (4-2, 3-1), who led 3-0 early, but managed only another field goal after that.

TEXAS 36, No. 12 OKLAHOMA 20

DALLAS (AP) — Case McCoy threw two touchdowns, defensive tackle Chris Whaley returned an interception 31 yards for a score and Texas beat 12th-ranked Oklahoma.

It was the first win for McCoy and these Texas seniors over the Sooners. Texas never trailed after Whaley’s impressive touchdown play in the first quarter.

Oklahoma had won three in a row in the series, the last two by at least 38 points.

Daje Johnson had an 85-yard punt return for a TD for Texas. Johnathan Gray had 123 yards rushing and Malcolm Brown had 120.

McCoy completed 13 of 21 passes for 190 yards with an interception, which defensive lineman Geneo Grissom returned 54 yards for a score in the fourth quarter for OU.

Blake Bell completed 12 of 26 passes for 133 yards with two interceptions for Oklahoma.

No. 14 SOUTH CAROLINA 52, ARKANSAS 7

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Connor Shaw threw for 219 yards and accounted for four touchdowns as South Carolina dominated.

Mike Davis added 128 yards rushing on 19 carries for the Gamecocks (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference), who won their fourth straight game after a loss to Georgia on Sept. 7.

All-America defensive end Jadeveon Clowney returned after missing last week’s game against Kentucky and had one tackle for South Carolina, which outgained the Razorbacks 537-248.

The loss was the fourth straight for Arkansas (3-4, 0-3), matching first-year coach Bret Bielema’s longest losing streak of his career.
