BEDLAM FINISH

Oklahoma escaped again.

And in what the Sooners call “Championship November,” nothing is more important.

Kyler Murray passed for 349 yards and ran for 66 and No. 6 Oklahoma survived a late two-point conversion attempt to beat Oklahoma State 48-47. The Sooners continued their push for a Big 12 title and a spot in the College Football Playoff by winning their 15th consecutive November game dating to 2014.

It was another close call — the victory came a week after Oklahoma edged Texas Tech 51-46. The Sooners will take the shootouts as long as they keep getting the best of them.

Oklahoma nearly saw its chances of reaching its goals vanish. Oklahoma State’s Taylor Cornelius connected with Tylan Wallace on a 24-yard touchdown pass to cut Oklahoma’s lead to one with 1:03 to play. Oklahoma State went for two, but Cornelius threw short and into coverage, Oklahoma’s Tre Brown got his hand on the ball and the pass fell incomplete.

TOREROS’ RECORD DAY

San Diego broke a slew of records — and needed every bit of it.

Anthony Lawrence threw for 556 yards and a record-tying seven touchdowns, Michael Bandy set a school record with 324 receiving yards, and San Diego rallied to beat Davidson 56-52 as the Wildcats set an FCS single-game rushing record of 789 yards.

Trailing 52-49 with 1:43 to play, Lawrence hit Bandy on a 20-yard pass for the go-ahead score and the Toreros stopped the Wildcats on downs to win their seventh straight conference game and the Pioneer League championship.

The teams combined for 1,477 yards of total offense, trailing the FCS record of 1,549, and four Davidson rushers had 100-plus yard games. Davidson’s 789 total rushing yards is a new FCS record, topping Missouri State’s 681 in 1988.

Bandy had four touchdown catches, including a 99-yarder, eclipsing Sam Hoekstra’s single-game record of 246 receiving yards against Dayton in 2012. Lawrence tied the school record and conference record for most TD passes in a single game.
