Washington upsets No. 4 Miami; Stanford loses to SJSU again

Monday September 11, 2000

No. 15 Washington 34, No. 4 Miami 29 

SEATTLE (AP) — Marques Tuiasosopo passed for a touchdown and ran for another, and freshman Rich Alexis scored on a 50-yard run. 

Washington (2-0) led 20-3 at halftime and took a 34-22 lead on early in the fourth quarter on Pat Conniff’s 1-yard run. But Miami (1-1) scored on James Jackson’s 1-yard run with 2:52 left. 

Tuiasosopo completed 18 of 31 passes for 223 yards with a touchdown. He rushed for 45 yards and scored a TD on 15 carries. 


No. 5 Wisconsin 27, Oregon 23 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Big Ten sprint champion Michael Bennett rushed for 290 yards and two long touchdowns. 

The suspension-ridden Badgers got three interceptions from Jamar Fletcher, whom coach Barry Alvarez considered sitting out. As it was, Wisconsin (2-0) went without a dozen players who were suspended for receiving unadvertised discounts at a shoe store. 

Bennett scored on runs of 59 and 75 yards in the third quarter and set up another TD with a career-long 83-yard burst. 


No. 11 Southern Cal 17, Colorado 14 

LOS ANGELES (AP) — David Newbury, who missed two earlier field- goal tries, kicked a 24-yarder with 13 seconds left to lift Southern California (2-0). 

Mark Mariscal left the game tied when he was wide left on a 41-yard field goal attempt with 1:14 remaining for Colorado (0-2). 


No. 16 UCLA 24, Fresno St. 21 

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — DeShaun Foster ran for two fourth-quarter touchdowns and UCLA (2-0) withstood two late touchdown passes from David Carr to Charles Smith. 

Foster scored on a 1-yard run on fourth-and-goal with 11:16 remaining, and a 49-yard burst less than 2 1/2 minutes later to give the Bruins what appeared to be an insurmountable 24-7 lead. 

However, Carr threw scoring passes of 16 and 32 yards to Smith to make it a three-point game with five minutes to play. 


Oregon St. 28, New Mexico 20 

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Pile-driving running back Ken Simonton rushed for 184 yards and two touchdowns, and Oregon State’s defense kept a struggling New Mexico offense gasping for yards as the Beavers won a 28-20 nonconference football victory Saturday night. 

Simonton, a 5-foot-10, 194-pound junior, allowed the Beavers to control the ball for long stretches of the second half, particularly as Oregon State’s bigger offenseive line began to wear down the Lobo defense. 


San Jose St. 40, Stanford 27 

STANFORD (AP) – Deonce Whitaker rushed for a career-high 254 yards on 21 carries, scored two touchdowns and set up two others as San Jose State stunned Stanford for the third consecutive year, winning 40-27 on Saturday night. 

Marcus Arroyo added two touchdown passes and threw for 199 yards as the Spartans (1-1) rebounded from a 49-13 loss to No. 1 Nebraska. San Jose State last beat Stanford three straight times from 1981-83. 


No. 18 Ohio St. 27, Arizona 17 

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) – There won’t be any talk about a defense-offense imbalance this week at Ohio State practices. 

Steve Bellisari saw to that as he passed for two touchdowns, including a 60-yarder to Chad Cacchio, to lead the Buckeyes. 

Nate Clements set up another score with a 47-yard punt return late in the third quarter, and Dan Stultz kicked two field goals as the Buckeyes (2-0) won in their first visit to Arizona Stadium.
