PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Faced with driving rain, winds and low temperatures, the Air Raid offense of No. 15 Washington State converted to a ground game. The Cougars rushed for 194 yards and quarterback Luke Falk threw for three touchdowns in a 28-0 victory over Colorado on Saturday night. Jamal Morrow rushed for 73 yards and a touchdown for Washington State (7-1, 4-1 Pac-12), which rebounded from a 34-point loss at California that coach Mike Leach called the worst game the Cougars have played in his six years there. "It's an improvement," Leach said. "Our team played hard. We missed some opportunities." Leach acknowledged the weather was brutal. "The first half was pretty extreme," Leach said.

Of the teams contending for the four spots in the College Football Playoff, none face a more treacherous stretch than Penn State over the next three weeks. Elbowed out of last year's playoff despite winning the Big Ten, the Nittany Lions are well positioned right now as the No. 2 team in The Associated Press poll. For the first time since 2004, they face three straight games against ranked opponents. They host No. 19 Michigan on Saturday night and play No. 3 Ohio State and No. 18 Michigan State in back-to-back road games. One loss won't slam the door on Penn State's playoff hopes. Two losses more than likely would. Things to know about Week 8 of the college football season. BEST GAME No. 11 Southern California at No. 13 Notre Dame.

HOUSTON (AP) — Down 17 in the second half on the road, there was no panic in No. 25 Memphis. The Tigers kept their focus and finished with a victory. Riley Ferguson threw for 471 yards and had a 21-yard TD pass with 1:28 left, Patrick Taylor rushed for a career-high four touchdowns and Memphis rallied to beat Houston 42-38 on Thursday night. "Offensively, to go from being shutout in the first half, not playing our best ball, a lot of mistakes, everything that could probably go wrong in the first half did," Memphis coach Mike Norvell said. "But, I came into the locker room and there was something about their eyes. No panic. They came out and absolutely responded.

In an era when it's increasingly difficult to get fans in the stadium, it apparently isn't so hard to get them into new rituals. Average attendance at the Football Bowl Subdivision level has dipped nearly 6 ½ percent over the last six years — from 46,632 in 2010 to 43,612 last season — and lagging student interest during the digital age is considered a factor. But in a sport that loves its history, the same technological advances that tempt fans to stay home also make it easier for programs start their own game-day traditions. It has become apparent in Florida's last two games, as the Gators have mixed practices old and new. As is customary, Gator fans sing "We Are The Boys From Old Florida" at the end of the third quarter.

SEATTLE (AP) — First-year Washington men's basketball coach Mike Hopkins hopes to install more than the trademark zone defense he learned during his long tenure as an assistant at Syracuse. Hopkins, who worked at Syracuse for 22 years under Jim Boeheim, succeeds Lorenzo Romar, who was fired after 15 seasons. Despite having Markelle Fultz, the one-and-done guard who became the No. 1-overall pick in the NBA draft, the Huskies finished 9-22 and closed with a school-record 13 consecutive losses en route to an 11th-place finish in the Pac-12 last year. "Whatever happened last year, is last year," Hopkins said Tuesday at the team's media day. "We're looking forward. We're always moving forward.

Another week in the 2017 season, another opponent that was completely overmatched by the Huskies.
