Wide receiver Derrick Williams became the first Penn State player in the Joe Paterno era with a rushing touchdown, a receiving touchdown and a kickoff-return touchdown in the same game in a 38-24 win over Illinois. He had 211 total yards.
Houston quarterback Case Keenum added to East Carolina's misery by going 36 of 44 for 399 yards, with three touchdowns and an interception, in a 41-24 win.
Bowling Green won 45-16 at Wyoming thanks to Tyler Sheehan, who was 22-for-35 for 287 yards and three total touchdowns.
The Beavers stunned top-ranked USC with a complete effort on both sides of the ball, led by tiny freshman running back Jacquizz Rodgers.
Rodgers and his teammates started a domino effect for the rest of the top 25. For its efforts, Oregon State swept the Rivals.com national awards this week.
Rivals.com named Rodgers its National Player of the Week, National Freshman of the Week and Pac-10 Player of the Week. Beavers offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf is the National Coordinator of the Week.
The 5-foot-6 Rodgers, shorter than everyone on USC's roster, became a national name after carrying the ball 37 times for 186 yards and two touchdowns against a stout USC defense in the 27-21 win.
Credit Langsdorf with formulating a game plan and sticking with it throughout the game. Quarterback Lyle Moevao passed for 167 yards and two touchdowns, and the Beavers committed no turnovers.
