PASADENA, CALIF. — Brett Hundley passed for 234 yards and a touchdown and rushed for two more scores as No. 17 UCLA beat No. 21 Southern California 38-28 Saturday, clinching the Pac-12 South title and emphatically snapping a five-game losing streak in its crosstown rivalry.
Eric Kendricks blocked a punt and made a fourth-quarter interception for the Bruins (9-2, 6-2 Pac-12).
Matt Barkley passed for 301 yards and two touchdowns, but threw two interceptions in the third loss in four games for the Trojans (7-4, 5-4).
NO. 6 OHIO STATE 21, WISCONSIN 14
At Madison, Wis., Carlos Hyde scored on a 2-yard run in overtime, and the Buckeyes stayed perfect.
The Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0) clinched the Leaders Division title outright with the win. But they are ineligible for the postseason, and the best they can hope for is to end the year unbeaten and to maybe capture the AP Top 25 title.
Montee Ball scored his 78th touchdown, tying Travis Prentice’s major-college record for career scores. But he fumbled on what would have been the record-breaker with 2:46 left.
NO. 16 NEBRASKA 38, MINNESOTA 14
At Lincoln, Neb. Taylor Martinez threw for 308 yards and two touchdowns to Kenny Bell while becoming Nebraska’s career passing leader. The Cornhuskers (9-2, 6-1), who had to come from behind in the second half in four of its first five Big Ten wins, scored on four of their first six possessions against the Gophers (6-5, 2-5).
Nebraska can clinch the Legends Division title — and a berth in the conference championship game against Wisconsin on Dec. 1 — with a win at Iowa on Friday or a Michigan loss at Ohio State on Saturday.
UTAH STATE 48, NO. 19 LOUISIANA TECH 41 (OT)
At Ruston, La., Kerwynn Williams scored on a 4-yard touchdown run to give Utah State a lead in overtime, and the Aggies stopped Louisiana Tech (9-2, 4-1) on four plays to win and clinch at least a share of the WAC championship.
Chuckie Keeton threw for 340 yards and two touchdowns, and rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns for Utah State (9-2, 5-0), which let a 24-point, third-quarter lead slip away against one of the nation’s highest scoring teams.
NO. 22 RUTGERS 10, CINCINNATI 3
At Cincinnati, Savon Huggins ran for a career-high 179 yards, and Rutgers’ defense had another shut-down showing to stay in control of the Big East.
Rutgers (9-1, 5-0) remained the only unbeaten team in conference play. The Scarlet Knights finish with games at Pittsburgh and home against No. 20 Louisville, which has one Big East loss.
NO. 23 MICHIGAN 42, IOWA 17
At Ann Arbor, Mich., Devin Gardner accounted for six touchdowns to help Michigan.
The Wolverines (8-3, 6-1 Big Ten) weren’t stopped on offense by the hapless Hawkeyes (4-7, 2-5) until Gardner threw an interception early in the fourth quarter. Iowa has lost five straight.
OKLAHOMA STATE 59, NO. 23 TEXAS TECH 21
At Stillwater, Okla., Isaiah Anderson had a career-best 174 yards receiving and caught three long touchdown passes from Clint Chelf in his final home game for Oklahoma State (7-3, 5-2 Big 12).
Seth Doege threw for 230 yards with two interceptions and a single touchdown pass for Texas Tech (7-4, 4-4).
NO. 25 KENT STATE 31, BOWLING GREEN 24
At Bowling Green, Ohio, Dri Archer had two long touchdown runs and finished with 241 yards rushing, leading Kent State (10-1, 7-0 MAC) to its first MAC title game.
