Sooners, Gators run wild in Week 10

  Alex Ross had 144 yards on Saturday.
510 Oklahoma ran for 510 yards in a 59-14 win against Iowa State, which is the highest number this season against a Power Five team and the third-best of any FBS team in 2014. The Sooners did it on 59 attempts, an average of 8.6 yards per carry. Running the ball well has been good news for Bob Stoops’ squad, which is 65-1 when surpassing 200 yards on the ground in his 16-year tenure, including a 37-game win streak when doing so, dating to a loss to Oregon in 2006. The Sooners had three rushers with more than 100 yards for the first time since 1992, and their 311 yards in the first half were their best in the past 10 seasons. Also notable, Oklahoma's kicker, Michael Hunnicutt, sent the 72nd field goal of his career through the uprights, becoming the all-time Big 12 leader.


21 Florida State had to overcome a 21-point deficit to beat Louisville last Thursday, which also happened to improve Jameis Winston’s record as a starter to 21-0. It was the 24th consecutive win for the Seminoles, extending a school-record streak. In its comeback effort, the biggest in the current streak, Florida State accumulated 374 yards in the second half. Louisville had not allowed more than 351 yards in a game before that.

33 Temple handed East Carolina its first AAC loss for the Owls’ first win against a ranked team in 33 tries. The losing streak against ranked teams dated to 1998, when Temple upset Virginia Tech. The Owls won despite being outgained 428-135, in large part thanks to five Pirates fumbles. It is the largest yardage deficit for a winning team since 2009. It was just the third win overall for Temple against a ranked team in program history and the first at home.

12,454 Of all of the great quarterbacks to go through the Pac-12, Oregon State’s Sean Mannion has the most passing yards in conference history with 12,454. He passed Matt Barkley’s mark of 12,327 with a 15-yard completion to Connor Hamlett in the fourth quarter of the Beavers’ 45-31 loss to California. Mannion is now 20th on the FBS all-time list. He finished the game 30 of 45 for 320 yards, while leading a 21-point run in a comeback effort before the Bears pulled away.

387 Wyoming running back Brian Hill amassed 387 all-purpose yards in the Cowboys’ win against Fresno State. That total was the highest in FBS this season, it broke Wyoming and Mountain West records, and was more than the entire Fresno State offense managed in the game. Hill earned 281 yards on the ground (second most in FBS this season) with two touchdowns, and he caught three passes for 106 yards after not having caught a pass this season.

53 Florida gained 418 yards on the ground in its win against Georgia, the most in the Will Muschamp era. Kelvin Taylor and Matt Jones combined for 389 of those yards, with 197 and 192, respectively. Both were career highs and it was the first time two Gators rushers eclipsed 190 in school history. Muschamp got his first win against his alma mater as Georgia surrendered its second most rushing yards in program history.
