    Nov. 8 at Arizona State 55, Notre Dame 31 
    And You Care Because … Five takeaways helped Arizona State get up early and survive a late rally. The Sun Devils roared to a 34-3 lead with Taylor Kelly throwing two touchdown passes including a 13-yarder to Jaelen Strong and a 43-yard play to Cameron Smith, and the defense got into the act with Damarious Randall returning an interception 59 yards for a score. It was all Notre Dame for most of the second half with Everett Golson throwing two touchdown passes and Cam McDaniel running for two one-yard scores as part of a 28-point run, but after a 25-yard Amir Carlisle catch to pull the Irish within three, ASU answered with a five-play scoring drive finishing off with Demario Richard’s second touchdown of the day. Notre Dame’s last gasp was thwarted by a Lloyd Carrington pick six, and Kelly finished it off with a two-yard scoring run. 
    What Else? Turnovers: Notre Dame 5 – Arizona State 1 
    – Notre Dame QB Everett Golson completed 22-of-41 passes for 446 yards and two touchdowns with four interceptions

Oregon State’s Terron Ward ran for two one-yard scores, with his second coming with three minutes to play, but that was as close as the Beavers would get. Oregon State started out with a 10-0 lead, but Falk threw three touchdown passes in a 15 minute span in the first half to give the Cougars control.

    Nov. 8 Oregon 51, at Utah 27 
    And You Care Because … Utah was up 7-0 on an eight-yard Bubba Poole run, and appeared to be going up 14-0 as Kaelin Clay took a pass 78 yards, but he celebrated too early, dropping the ball before crossing the goal line. Oregon’s Joe Walker ended up picking up the ball in the end zone and took it 100 yards for a score. That sparked a run of 24 straight Duck points with Marcus Mariota throwing two short touchdown passes and Aldan Schneider hitting a 39-yard field goal. Utah didn’t go away, with Andy Phillips hitting three field goals and Devonte Booker taking a pass 27 yards for a score to pull within seven, and a Westlee Tonga 13-yard scoring catch pulled the Utes within three in the fourth. Mariota had an answer taking the Ducks 75 yards in five plays and finishing off with a 34-yard pass to Dwayne Stanford. Mariota and Royce Freeman each ran for scores as part of Oregon’s run of 21 unanswered points.

    Nov. 8 at Arizona 38, Colorado 20 
    And You Care Because … Anu Solomon threw four touchdown passes with two to Samajie Grant in the fourth quarter from 27 and 20 yards out, and Tra’Mayne Bondurant returned a fumble 22 yards for a score as Arizona got through a fight with the Buffs. Colorado scored on the first play of the game on a 75-yard Shay Fields touchdown catch, and Sefo Liufau caught a seven-yard touchdown pass on a trick play, but a 33-yard Will Oliver field goal to pull within four in the third was as close as it would get in the second half.

Washington got a kickoff return for a touchdown from John Ross after Johnson’s touchdown catch, but was down 14-0 early before finally getting on the board with a 20-yard Cameron Van Winkle field goal and a six-yard Cyler Miles run. The Husky offense wouldn’t get into the end zone again until the fourth quarter when the game was well out of reach. Ka’imi Fairbarin hit three field goals for the Bruins.
