Robinson again

About as easy a 41-yard touchdown as you’ll see.

Bijan Robinson sneaks out of the backfield, Quinn Ewers hits him and not a soul really close to No. 5 as he trots in for six.

Texas 21, Oklahoma State 10 early in the second.

Longhorns take the lead behind Robinson

Bearcats hold off Mustangs

The No. 21 Bearcats win, 29-27. Cincinnati holds on courtesy a failed 2-point conversion attempt by SMU with less than two minutes remaining.

Way too many penalties (14 for 127 yards) and miscues, struggles on offense, field goals instead of touchdowns…but Cincinnati pulls out a close one yet again, improves to 6-1 (3-0 AAC).

With today’s result, Luke Fickell is officially Cincinnati’s all-time winningest head coach, surpassing Rick Minter with 54 victories in his sixth season with the Bearcats.

Miami loses to Duke after Tyler Van Dyke injury

Miami lost quarterback Tyler Van Dyke, turned it over eight times, and fell to Duke 45-21 at home in an embarrassing loss at home for Mario Cristobal. Van Dyke exited in the first half with an injury to his right arm and backup Jake Garcia rallied Miami to a 21-17 lead early in the third quarter with a pair of touchdown passes. But Garcia threw three interceptions and lost two fumbles and Duke took advantage of all of Miami’s mistakes.

Riley Leonard threw for 136 yards and a touchdown and ran for 61 yards and three scores as the Blue Devils improved to 5-3, 2-2 ACC play.
