After entering the AP poll for the first time in 17 years, No. 25 Baylor earned its first win in Austin since '91 behind the arm of QB Robert Griffin III (right), who passed for two TDs, bumping his career total to 39, a new BU record. As for the NFL Bears? They had a bye, which meant a rare sackless weekend for Jay Cutler.
Iowa handed No. 5 Michigan State its first loss of the season last Saturday in the form of a 37--6 beatdown that saw three Ricky Stanzi passing TDs and two Adam Robinson TD runs. Said MSU QB Kirk Cousins of the game, which was 30--0 at half, "We ran into a buzz saw."
Liverpool got an 86th-minute goal from Maxi Rodriguez (right) to earn a 1--0 win—their second straight, a rare feat for the Reds these days—at Bolton on Sunday, pulling them out of the EPL drop zone and pleasing their new owners of three weeks. Next up: first-place Chelsea.
