FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Kyler Murray threw four touchdowns, Kennedy Brooks and Trey Sermon both had 100-yard rushing games with scores and ninth-ranked Oklahoma rebounded from its only loss this season by beating TCU for the third time in 11 months, 52-27 on Saturday.

The Sooners (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) won their 18th consecutive true road game, never trailing after scoring touchdowns on each of their first four drives. It was their first game since losing to Texas 48-45 two weeks ago, when they scored three touchdowns in a six-minute span of the fourth quarter to tie the game before the Longhorns kicked a field goal in the final seconds.

"It was just perfect how the game unfolded, we came out and played like we were capable of, carrying over some momentum we had," coach Lincoln Riley said.

Whitlow helps Auburn run past Ole Miss

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) If there were any questions whether the Auburn Tigers would be able to bounce back from consecutive disappointing losses, head coach Gus Malzahn figured they were answered in a 31-16 win over Mississippi on Saturday.

Kickoff fair catches not catching on

The new college football rule rewarding teams for making fair catches on kickoffs has not caught on like officiating supervisors expected and more changes could be made in 2019 to further reduce kick returns or make them safer.

If a fair catch is made on a kickoff anywhere between the goal line and 25 this season, it is ruled a touchback and the ball is marked at the 25. The goal was to have fewer kick returns, which have a higher injury rate compared with other types of plays because of the likelihood of high-speed player collisions.
