TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Stanford controlled the ball on offense, prevented big plays on defense. The Cardinal put together a couple of key scoring drives and limited Arizona State's chances for a comeback.

It's just the way Stanford wins games - and just what the Cardinal needed after a two-game losing streak.

K.J. Costello threw for 231 yards and a touchdown, and Stanford remained in the thick of the Pac-12 North Division race with a 20-13 win over Arizona State on Thursday night.


Michigan, MSU cordial before big matchup

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio began his news conference this week by talking about how well Michigan is playing, and how the No. 6 Wolverines certainly deserve a lofty ranking.

He later pointed out that recent matchups between the Spartans and Wolverines have been played in good spirit.


Clemson, NC State vie for Atlantic lead

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) The Clemson-North Carolina State football series has been one of the most competitive in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

It has also been one of the oddest.


Tide a big favorite over Vols once again

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Alabama's last obstacle before a Western Division showdown with No. 5 LSU is a longtime Southeastern Conference rival it has treated as little more than a speed bump for over a decade.

Yet the top-ranked Crimson Tide say they're taking nothing for granted heading into Saturday's matchup at Neyland Stadium. They have too much understanding of this rivalry and too much respect for the familiar face who has taken over Tennessee's program.


No. 9 Sooners visit TCU seeking rebound

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Kyler Murray has had nearly two weeks to stew over his first loss as Oklahoma's starting quarterback.

"After the game I probably said about six words," Murray said. "But I think losing that game is definitely a learning lesson. ... I can only learn from it and get better from it."


'Gameday' wait over for Washington State

Long before the sun rises over the rolling hills of the Palouse, the fans in crimson and gray will make their pilgrimage. They'll come stumbling out of RVs parked the night before in nearby lots. They'll walk through campus past the Bryan Clock Tower or make the hike up College Hill

They'll don jerseys bearing the names Leaf, Thompson, Bledsoe, Gleason and they'll display the number "3" in memory of quarterback Tyler Hilinski. They'll carry signs disparaging Dawgs to the West and Ducks to the South. They'll celebrate the "Popcorn Guy" and the "Fireball Chugger."


No. 2 Buckeyes still seeking improvement

Jeff Brohm sees all sorts of challenges in No. 2 Ohio State.

Purdue's coach knows the Buckeyes are big and strong, capable of scoring dozens of points and of making life miserable for opponents.


Ole Miss latest test for reeling Auburn

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) Auburn's season has turned sour after three losses in the past five weeks ended any talk of a Southeastern Conference title.

Now the Tigers are trying to finish the regular season strong, starting with Saturday's game at Mississippi.


No. 19 Iowa looks to continue surge

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa is back in the Top 25 behind a rejuvenated offense and a resilient defense.

The 19th-ranked Hawkeyes (5-1, 2-1 Big Ten) hope to keep things rolling on Saturday in their only home game in a stretch of 42 days when they host Maryland (4-2, 2-1) for just the second time ever. The Hawkeyes are coming off back-to-back dominant road wins over Minnesota and Indiana - scoring 90 points with 10 touchdown passes in those outings - and are starting to look like the favorite in the Big Ten West.


Penn State, Indiana aim to bounce back

Penn State coach James Franklin is all too familiar with this week's daunting scenario.

He watched the Nittany Lions' conference title hopes and playoff possibilities slip away with back-to-back road losses last October. Two early losses during a three-week stretch in 2016 kept the eventual Big Ten champs out of the playoffs. In 2014, a four-game midseason losing streak prevented Penn State from reaching a major bowl game.
