No. 2 Nebraska 17, No. 16 Kansas State 6
At Manhattan, Kan., Nebraska beat the Wildcats for the 26th straight time despite depending on third-string quarterback Matt Turman to start.
Turman, a sophomore walk-on, spent most of the first half handing off to Lawrence Phillips, who ran for 126 yards and one touchdown. Brook Berringer, who had been out with a partially collapsed lung, played the second half. Nebraska (7-0, 2-0 Big Eight) has lost Frazier for the season because of blood clots in his leg.
Chad May threw a 29-yard touchdown pass early in the second quarter for Kansas State (4-1, 1-1), but had trouble throwing during a rainy second half.

At South Bend, John Walsh passed for 216 yards and Brigham Young won a non-conference road game for the first time since 1989.
Notre Dame (4-3) is off to its worst start since 1986, when coach Lou Holtz went 5-6 in his first season with the team. Quarterback Ron Powlus was injured late in the game, and backup Tom Krug stalled at midfield in the final minute.
BYU (5-1) twice stopped the Irish inside its 10. The Cougars recovered a fumble, intercepted a pass and had four sacks.

No. 25 Duke 19, Clemson 13
At Durham, N.C., Ray Farmer blocked the eighth kick of his career and recovered it for a tie-breaking touchdown with 3:37 left as Duke remained unbeaten.
The victory assured the Blue Devils (6-0, 3-0 ACC) their first winning season in five years. Duke, the subject of a Sports Illustrated feature last week, is off to its best start since 1952.
Farmer, who earlier blocked a field goal try, smothered Nelson Welch's punt and fell on it in the end zone for only Duke's second win in 14 games against Clemson (2-4, 1-3).
