  • LINCOLN, Neb. — UCLA's emotional week ended with the Bruins making a comeback the likes of which rarely, if ever, has been seen at Memorial Stadium.
    Brett Hundley threw three touchdown passes while No. 16 UCLA wiped out an 18-point deficit to defeat No. 23 Nebraska 41-21 and stun into silence a record crowd of 91,471 on Saturday.
    The win came six days after UCLA receiver Nick Pasquale was killed when he was struck by a vehicle while he was walking in his hometown and a day before coaches and teammates travel to San Clemente, Calif., for his memorial service.
    The Bruins wore No. 36 patches on their jerseys in memory of Pasquale. The Huskers wore No. 36 decals on their helmets, and there was a moment of silence for Pasquale before the game.
    The Huskers (2-1), wearing alternate black jerseys instead of their traditional home red, looked to be in total control in the first half.
    Then they had a flashback to last year at the Rose Bowl, when they couldn't stop Hundley and an offense that had 653 yards in a 36-30 Bruins' win.
    No. 5 Stanford 34, Army 20
    At West Point, N.Y., played to a near standstill the first two quarters by a 30-point underdog, the Cardinal regrouped in the second half and beat the Black Knights. Kevin Hogan threw for three touchdowns and Tyler Gaffney had two touchdowns and 132 yards rushing for the Cardinal (2-0).
    No. 19 Washington 34, Illinois 24
    At Chicago, Keith Price threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns, Bishop Sankey ran for a career-high 208 yards and Washington got a rare road win, beating Illinois at Soldier Field.
    Josh Shirley added three sacks, and the Huskies came out on top after dropping seven of nine away from home. They hadn't won on the road outside the Pac-12 since beating Syracuse in 2007.
    No. 4 Ohio State 52, California 34
    At Berkeley, Calif., Kenny Guiton threw three of his four touchdown passes in the first six minutes of his first career start and Ohio State rolled to its 15th straight victory.
    Washington St. 48, S. Utah 10
    At Pullman, Wash., Connor Halliday threw for 383 yards and five touchdowns as Washington State beat Southern Utah.
    USC 35, Boston College 7
    At Los Angeles, Cody Kessler passed for 237 yards and two touchdowns, Tre Madden became the first Southern California player to open a season with three straight 100-yard rushing games in 32 years and the Trojans bounced back from an embarrassing loss to Pac-12 doormat Washington State.
    Arizona 38, UTSA 13
    At Tucson, Ariz., B.J. Denker ran for two touchdowns and passed for another, leading Arizona past outmatched UTSA.
