Some things never change
Jarrett Guarantano threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Marquez Callaway on the final play of the first half and Darrell Taylor recorded four sacks as host Tennessee trounced No. 11 Kentucky 24-7 on Saturday. Taylor also forced and recovered a fumble to help Tennessee beat Kentucky at Neyland Stadium for a 17th consecutive time. The Wildcats haven't earned a road victory in this annual series since 1984. "Not a really good effort," Kentucky coach Mark Stoops said. "It really starts with me. I didn't have the team prepared."
Mountaineers pound TCU
Will Grier threw three touchdown passes as No. 9 West Virginia had no trouble against injury-riddled Texas Christian, winning at home 47-10. Chasing a berth in the Big 12 Championship Game, West Virginia held TCU to a season-low 222 yards of offense. Grier completed 25 of 39 passes for 343 yards.
Cougars' streak at six
Gardner Minshew II overcame a slow start and three fourth-down failures to lead No. 8 Washington State to a 31-7 victory at nose-diving Colorado. The Cougars won their sixth consecutive game, but it wasn't as easy as expected vs. the Buffaloes, who lost their fifth in a row despite the return of star receiver Laviska Shenault Jr.
UCF win streak at 22
McKenzie Milton threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score, helping No. 12 Central Florida extend the nation's longest winning streak to 22 games by beating Navy 35-24 in Orlando, the Midshipmen's seventh loss in a row. UCF remained one of four unbeaten teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision, along with Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame.
Near-brawl at Iowa State
Brock Purdy threw for a touchdown and ran for another score, and No. 22 Iowa State topped Baylor 28-14 after a skirmish in the third quarter resulted in unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties for both teams. Iowa State star David Montgomery and Baylor linebacker Greg Roberts were ejected after throwing punches at each other, as the teams nearly staged a full-on brawl.
