UCLA (2-1) 38, New Mexico State (0-4) 24
The Bruins spotted NMSU a 7-point halftime lead but stormed back with 31 points in the final two quarters to win it big over the Aggies. UCLA took care of NMSU mainly on the back of DTR’s legs that saw him evade pressure on multiple occasions and secure some much-needed yardage.

No. 12 Washington (3-0) 28, FCS West 25
In a bit of a shocker, the Huskies let their guard down against a fiesty Fusion team and were a missed 50-yard field goal away from going into overtime against FCSW. Quarterback Jacob Eason was held out of the end zone as FCS West did a great job of pressuring him on his throws, forcing some errant decisions and too many throwaways.
Passing: Jacob Eason, 17-36, 230 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT, 1 sack
Rushing: Salvon Ahmed, 22 carries, 129 yards, 3 TD

Arizona State (3-0, 1-0) 28, No. 23 Stanford (2-1, 0-1) 16
A Brandon Aiyuk touchdown in the fourth quarter became the game-winning score for the Sun Devils, who impressively are sitting at 3-0 and knocked off Stanford despite an injury to QB Jayden Daniels in the third quarter. K.J. Costello played the entire game for Stanford with no Davis Mills sighting, however, after being unable to move the chains during their second-to-last offensive drive in the fourth quarter, Mills was seen warming up, but never got in.

Oregon State (4-0, 1-0) 24, San Diego State (1-2) 17
It took an 18-point fourth quarter but the Beavers came back to trounce the Aztecs and remain undefeated this season. Jake Luton’s five-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Hodgins was the game winner with just 2:44 remaining on the clock. Luton was relatively ineffective during the whole game and the rushing attack really paced the Beavers offense through the second half.

No. 21 Washington State (3-1, 0-1) 45, Idaho (0-4) 20
Anthony Gordon threw three touchdowns and the Cougars actually ran in another two scores in a trouncing of the Vandals easy on Saturday night. Gordon attempted a whopping 53 passes and played well into the fourth quarter before the backups took over.
Passing: Anthony Gordon, 30-53, 355 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT, 2 sack

Herbstreit Pick: Washington State (W)
BYU Cougars (1-2) 27, Utah Utes (1-3, 0-1) 14
The Holy War was a slugfest between the Cougars and Utes as Zach Wilson’s tremendous first half was enough to hold off Utah in the end. Zack Moss left with an injury but the offense actually fared better in the second half without him and Devonta’e Henry-Cole taking charge. It was still inefficient enough due to three turnovers including two Tyler Huntley interceptions that ultimately sealed the deal.
Passing: Tyler Huntley, 11-27, 150 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT, 2 sack
Rushing: Devonta’e Henry-Cole, 18 carries, 77 yards, 0 TD
