Texas Tech builds big lead, holds off No. 3 Oklahoma

NORMAN, Okla. — Seth Doege threw for 441 yards and connected with Alex Torres on three of his four touchdown passes, and Texas Tech snapped No. 3 Oklahoma's 39-game home winning streak with a 41-38 win on Saturday.

Doege carved up an Oklahoma defense missing three starters, guiding the Red Raiders (5-2, 2-2 Big 12) to their biggest win yet under second-year coach Tommy Tuberville. He pulled off a feat that Mike Leach couldn't accomplish in his 10 years in charge in Lubbock, Texas, and Tech became just the third team to beat OU coach Bob Stoops at home.

No. 5 Boise State 33, Air Force 26

At Boise, Idaho, Kellen Moore threw three touchdowns, Doug Martin scored twice and the defense and special teams did just enough to help Boise State hold off Air Force.

No. 6 Oklahoma State 45, Missouri 24

At Columbia, Mo., Joseph Randle scored four touchdowns, two on runs that capitalized on big defensive plays by Shaun Lewis, and Oklahoma State ended Missouri's 10-game home winning streak.

No. 8 Clemson 59,North Carolina 38

At Clemson, S.C., Tajh Boyd tied a school record with five touchdown passes, defensive end Kourtnei Brown scored on interception and fumble returns and Clemson improved to 8-0 for the first time in 11 years.
