Mariota accounted for four touchdowns in the Ducks' 44-10 rout of Colorado. He was 24-of-32 passing for 323 yards and three touchdowns, and he rushed for 73 yards and another score. Mariota's third passing score broke Matt Barkley's Pac-12 record for single-season touchdowns. The redshirt junior has now accounted for 42 with one regular-season game left to play.
Wisconsin needed Gordon to edge Iowa 26-24. The junior rushed for exactly 200 yards and two touchdowns and surpassed 2,000 rushing yards this season in the win. He's the fastest player in FBS history, in terms of carries, to reach the 2,000-yard mark.
Cooper was forced out Alabama's win over Western Carolina after taking a helmet to his knee at the end of a 27-yard catch. He spent most of the second half on a stationary bike. He finished with three catches for 46 yards.
After the game, coach Nick Saban said Cooper had a bruised knee and could have returned.
Boykin and the Horned Frogs were off this weekend. TCU takes to the road to play Texas on Thanksgiving night.
Prescott accounted for 193 passing yards and four touchdowns -- three through the air and one of the ground -- to help Mississippi State blank Vanderbilt 51-0. It was the Bulldogs' biggest margin of victory in an SEC game since 1936.
