Kyle Kempt passed for 343 yards and three touchdowns, including a 25-yarder to Allen Lazard that put the Cyclones ahead with 2:19 left, and Joel Lanning made plays on offense and defense to lead Iowa State to a stunning 38-31 victory over No. 3 Oklahoma. The loss snapped Oklahoma's nation-leading 14-game winning streak and the Sooners' 18-game run against the Cyclones that dated to 1990. It was just Iowa State's second victory over Oklahoma since 1961. Kempt, the senior who had thrown just two career passes previously, played because regular starter Jacob Park went on leave for undisclosed personal medical reasons late this week. The Cyclones remained confident, despite having lost 20 straight against ranked opponents. Iowa State's last win over a Top 25 team came against TCU in 2012. It was Iowa State's first road win over a top-five team. ___ SPARTY BEATS MICHIGAN AGAIN Mark Dantonio has done what seemed improbable a decade ago and in the previous century, figuring out a way to help Michigan State have its way with Michigan on a consistent basis. Brian Lewerke ran for a touchdown and threw for a score in the first half and the Spartans held on to beat the seventh-ranked Wolverines 14-10 on Saturday night. Michigan State has beaten Michigan eight times in a 10-year stretch for the first time in a series that dates to 1898. The Wolverines had the ball late with a chance to drive for a go-ahead TD, but a heave from the Spartans 37 as time expired hit the turf near the goal line. Michigan could not overcome many mistakes, including five turnovers and several costly penalties. John O'Korn , replacing injured starter Wilton Speight, threw three interceptions in the second half. Ty Isaac and Sean McKeon fumbled. ___ LSU BOUNCEBACK After the clock struck zero, LSU players sprinted toward an end zone and started doing the "Gator Chomp." Given the team's tumultuous week, this was hardly taunting. It was a sigh of relief. Danny Etling threw a short touchdown pass in the second half and LSU rebounded from a stunning home loss and beat No. 21 Florida 17-16. LSU's 24-21 loss to Troy last week was the program's first at home against a non-conference opponent since 2000. The Tigers responded with tougher practices, two players-only meetings and another involving the athletic director, the head coach and both coordinators. And finished the week with a much-needed victory. ___ NUMBERS 6_Interceptions by Appalachian State in a 45-31 win over New Mexico State.

The Gators got on the scoreboard with Eddy Pineiro's 25-yard field goal in the second quarter against LSU. That broke the previous mark set by Michigan (1984-2014) and tied by the Gators last week. The Wolverines played 365 games over 30 years without being shut out. Michigan's streak ended with a 31-0 loss at Notre Dame on Sept. 6, 2014. Florida hasn't been shut out since a 16-0 home loss to Auburn on Oct. 29, 1988. LSU won the game 17-16. ___ More AP college football: and
