Baylor falls from ranks of unbeaten

STILLWATER, Okla. — Clint Chelf passed for a career-high 370 yards and accounted for four touchdowns as No. 11 Oklahoma State took down another national-championship hopeful with a 49-17 rout of No. 3 Baylor on Saturday.

Chelf, who lost the starting job earlier this season for the Cowboys (10-1, 7-1 Big 12 Conference), threw for three touchdown passes and ran for a score — continuing his mastery of the stunned Bears in front of a record crowd of 60,218 in Boone Pickens Stadium.

The senior also had a 48-yard reception and finished with 438 yards of total offense. He was 19-of-25 passing. Tracy Moore added five catches for 126 yards for Oklahoma State.

Bryce Petty was 28-of-48 passing for 359 yards for Baylor (9-1, 6-1), which had its 13-game winning streak snapped and hasn't won in Stillwater since 1939.

No. 1 Alabama 49, Chattanooga 0

At Tuscaloosa, Ala., AJ McCarron passed for two touchdowns and became Alabama's winningest quarterback.

McCarron completed 13 of 16 passes for 171 yards before leaving one drive into the second half of his final game at Bryant-Denny Stadium for the Crimson Tide (11-0). He improved to 36-2 as a starter, breaking a tie with Jay Barker for the school mark.

No. 2 Florida State 80, Idaho 14

At Tallahassee, Fla., Jameis Winston threw for 225 yards and four touchdowns as Florida State broke a school record for points in a game.

No. 4 Ohio State 42, Indiana 14

At Columbus, Ohio, Braxton Miller ran for 144 yards and two touchdowns and passed for two more to lead Ohio State to a victory over Indiana, extending the Buckeyes' school-record win streak to 23 in a row.

The snowy victory clinched a division title for the Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0), locking up a spot opposite Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game on Dec. 7.

No. 7 Clemson 52, The Citadel 6

At Clemson, S.C., Tajh Boyd threw for five touchdowns and 288 yards in the final home game of his career.

No. 8 Missouri 24, Mississippi 10

At Oxford, Miss., Henry Josey rushed for two touchdowns, Marcus Murphy added another and No. 8 Missouri rolled.

No. 18 LSU 34,No. 9 Texas A&M 10

At Baton Rouge, La., Terrance Magee rushed for a career-high 149 yards and LSU's defense pulled the plug on Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M's video-game offense.

What was likely Manziel's only visit to Tiger Stadium was among the worst outings of his otherwise brilliant career. He passed for 224 yards and a TD, but completed only 16 of 41, was sacked twice and intercepted twice as the Aggies' road winning streak ended at 10.
