Playing a long stretch of games away from home doesn’t stir great concern for Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops and his players. The Sooners overcame their first deficit of the season to quiet a sellout crowd at West Virginia, and now fourth-ranked Oklahoma (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) will use a bye week to try to build on a solid start to the season. Oklahoma pulled away in the second half of a 45-33 win over the Mountaineers on Saturday night by slowing down West Virginia’s up-tempo offense in the second half and letting the Sooners’ 243-pound freshman running back Samaje Perine do most of the work.

The second-ranked Ducks were flying high after a nonconference victory over then-No. 7 Michigan State earlier this season, but Washington State and the start of Pac-12 play brought Oregon back to reality. The Cougars and their Air Raid offense under coach Mike Leach pressured the Ducks (4-0, 1-0) throughout, and pulled even at 31 in the final quarter. ”We faced a ton of adversity, some self-inflicted, some not,” Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said.

Rutgers running back Paul James will miss the rest of the season after he tore a knee ligament during the Scarlet Knights’ victory against Navy. James was the team’s leading rusher and had 96 yards and a touchdown on seven carries against Navy on Saturday before taking a helmet to his knee. Coach Kyle Flood announced on Sunday that James tore the ACL in his right knee when he took a Navy player’s helmet to his knee. ”It’s somebody who’s created a lot of big plays in the running game and did it again yesterday.” Rutgers beat Navy 31-24.

Nebraska has made it through non-conference play unbeaten for the first time in three years. The 21st-ranked Huskers (4-0) have endured embarrassing losses at least once in each of Bo Pelini’s first six seasons. ”Any given week, anything can happen,” running back Ameer Abdullah said.

Loss to Miss St. yields QB questions for LSU (Yahoo Sports)

LSU wide receiver Malachi Dupre (15) pulls in a touchdown reception in front of Mississippi State defensive back Jamerson Love (5) to pull within five points in the second half of an NCAA college football game in Baton Rouge, La., Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014. Mississippi State won 34-29. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)

In LSU’s worst game of this young season, reserve quarterback Brandon Harris looked better than ever in the little playing time he had. The freshman’s stirring performance in the dying minutes of a humbling 34-29 loss to Mississippi State begged the question of what might have been if the young quarterback with the big arm had more snaps. ”We are still going to look at the overall body of work and the things that we can do with him.” Mississippi State, which went from unranked up to No. 14 in the AP Poll on Sunday, appeared to have LSU down for the count when the Bulldogs kicked a field goal to make it 34-10 early in the fourth quarter. Bulldogs quarterback Dak Prescott was having his way with an LSU defense plagued by communication problems and missed assignments in giving up 10 plays of 20-yards or more, including touchdowns of 74 and 56 yards.

Alabama’s play ranged from great to awful in win (Yahoo Sports)

Alabama’s numbers were a mish-mash of the awfully pretty and pretty awful: four turnovers, 11 penalties, 645 yards – and one more win. The third-ranked Crimson Tide retained its perfect record with Saturday’s 42-21 win over Florida but the performance was anything but pristine. I think that’s a lot easier to do when you eliminate negative plays.” He said many of the 11 penalties for 80 yards resulted from lack of discipline but that this hasn’t been characteristic of the Tide (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference). The Gators (2-1, 1-1) cashed in on three of the turnovers with touchdowns for their only points, one on a fumble recovery and the other two on drives totaling 47 yards.
