Baker Mayfield passed for 331 yards and four touchdowns as No. 2 Oklahoma followed its impressive victory at Ohio State.

Baker Mayfield passed for 331 yards and four touchdowns as No. 2 Oklahoma followed its impressive victory at Ohio State with a 56-14 win over Tulane on Saturday.

Oklahoma receiver CeeDee Lamb caught four passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns before he was ejected for targeting on a block in the second quarter. Marquise Brown had career highs of six catches for 155 yards, including an 87-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter for the Sooners (3-0).

The Sooners and Green Wave were tied at 14 in the second quarter before Oklahoma’s Parnell Motley returned an interception 77 yards for a touchdown to turn the momentum for good. Oklahoma extended its nation-leading win streak to 13 games.

FLORIDA AT THE BUZZER: Feleipe Franks heaved a 63-yard touchdown pass to Tyrie Cleveland as the clock expired as No. 24 Florida beat 23rd-ranked Tennessee 26-20 in a wild, wacky and sometimes unwatchable rivalry game Saturday.

Franks scrambled away from the rush on a first-and-10 play with nine seconds remaining and found Cleveland behind safety Micah Abernathy for a Hail Mary that no one — especially the Volunteers — saw coming.

The final play capped a crazy fourth quarter in which the teams combined for 37 points and little, if any, defence.

UCLA UPSET: Riley Ferguson threw for 398 yards and six touchdowns and Jacobi Francis broke up a fourth-down pass in the closing seconds in Memphis’ victory over UCLA.

Francis’ breakup with 56 seconds left prevented another fourth-quarter comeback by Bruins quarterback Josh Rosen. He was 34-of-56 for 463 yards and four TDs.
