DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Syracuse’s quarterback stayed upright and its running backs ran free. The Orange’s new-look defense kept its opponent out of the end zone. They only needed one win to avoid being 0-for-the-ACC — and did they ever get it. Syracuse routed Duke 49-6 on Saturday to snap a four-game losing streak, with Tommy DeVito throwing for two touchdowns and running for another. “It’s just one game — that’s all it is, one football game — but how important a football game it was to us was extreme based on things that have gone on the past two weeks,” coach Dino Babers said. Andre Cisco returned an interception 48 yards for a TD to help the Orange (4-6, 1-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) earn their first win against a power-conference team. Syracuse, a 10-point underdog, pulled away by turning three second-half takeaways into touchdowns and outscored Duke 35-0 after halftime. “I’m really excited that they have the … [Read more...] about Syracuse routs Duke 49-6, snaps 4-game slide
The burly Latino guard stationed near the entrance of the Fox Plaza skyscraper in Century City looked as if he could have been one of my cousins back in Anaheim. But that didn’t stop him from grilling us in accented English about what we were doing as we tested our microphones and recorders in the lobby.“I’m here to interview Pete Wilson,” I replied. The guard’s face instantly took on a sour look. He pointed us to the concierge, who evidently had been expecting us.Two more layers of security later, each with people less willing to engage in small talk than the previous, my producer, Abbie Fentress Swanson, and I were on an elevator speeding toward the 28th floor. Advertisement The door opened to the offices of Browne George Ross, a bicoastal law firm where Wilson serves as counsel. The receptionist asked us to wait on white leather couches. Before us, big windows that offered a fabulous view of Los Angeles illuminated the multiple rooms.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah dominated yet another opponent on both sides of the ball. The No. 8 Utes smothered UCLA on offense and shredded the Bruins on defense on their way to a 49-3 victory on Saturday night. It was the largest margin of victory for Utah in a Pac-12 game. Utah (9-1, 6-1 Pac-12, No. 7 CFP) also beat the Bruins for a fourth straight season. On offense, the Utes totaled 536 yards and rushed for 201 yards. Their domination was equally pronounced on defense. UCLA (4-6, 4-3 Pac-12) saw a three-game winning streak end after it committed five turnovers and averaged just 3.7 yards per play. The Bruins finished with 50 rushing yards after losing 81 total yards on sacks and tackles for loss. “We certainly won the rushing battle and controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage,” Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. The Utes wanted to prove they were the more physical team and proved it over 60 minutes. Utah's ability to be disruptive on every play caused the … [Read more...] about No. 8 Utah routs UCLA 49-3 to improve to 9-1.
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Starting a third quarterback in a season for the first time in 26 campaigns, Boise State was counting on some help from its defense against New Mexico. Sonatane Lui and teammates were happy to oblige. No. 21 Boise State forced a turnover on the first play from scrimmage and went on to beat New Mexico 42-9 on Saturday night. Chase Hatada forced a fumble from New Mexico quarterback Tevaka Tuioti on the first play, and Lui scooped up the ball and rumbled 24 yards for a score. It was the kind of start Boise State sought, paving the way for a big first quarter. Asked where scoring that touchdown ranked in his greatest life moments, Lui quipped: “My wife is probably watching, so, second.” It was also the kind of breathing room quarterback Jaylon Henderson appreciated in his first start for the Broncos. But Henderson didn’t look the part of a third-string backup at his third school in his collegiate career. Henderson threw for 292 yards and three … [Read more...] about Henderson throws 3 TD passes, No. 21 Broncos beat New Mexico
