  • Coach Luke Fickell was in Columbus in 2009, getting Ohio State ready for the bowl season, while Cincinnati was knocking off Pitt and wrapping up an undefeated regular season. 'I watched that entire game and realized what people were saying: There's another team in the state that might be better than anybody,' Fickell said. The 21st-ranked Bearcats (5-1, 2-0 American Athletic) will honor that team Saturday when they host Tulsa (2-4, 0-2), looking back to one of their best years while trying to extend a winning streak that's put them in line for another championship. They've won four in a row and grabbed the edge in the American Athletic East. 'Where we're sitting right now, it's kind of falling a bit in line with that plan,' Fickell said. 'You say no matter what, you've got to play your best ball at the end.' They've been pretty good lately, especially on defense. Fickell has been using 22 players on defense to keep them fresh, an approach that's paid off late in games. Cincinnati went 11-2 last season with a roster that wasn't nearly as deep. 'Right now, with the amount of people we're playing, I think that's why we have a better chance at the end of the year,' Fickell said. 'Last year we were playing well, but there were a lot of guys that were beat up and wore out.' Tulsa is looking to catch its breath at the midpoint of a challenging schedule. The Golden Hurricane is playing a ranked team for the third time, having lost to No. 18 Michigan State and No. 24 SMU. Tulsa is coming off a 45-17 loss to Navy. 'They're frustrated and I'm frustrated,' coach Philip Montgomery said. 'We knew we had a tough schedule in front of us. We knew we'd have to play extremely well. We've had opportunities that you just can't let slip by. We know our schedule doesn't get any easier.' Some things to watch Saturday at Nippert Stadium: GET THE BALL Cincinnati has forced nine turnovers in its last two games — seven interceptions and two fumble recoveries. The Bearcats picked off UCF's Dillon Gabriel three times, returning one of the interceptions for a touchdown, during their 27-24 upset. Last week, safety Ja'Von Hicks had a pair of interceptions and a fumble recovery in a 38-23 win at Houston, earning the league's award as defensive player of the week. STEADY SMITH Tulsa's Zach Smith is third in the league with 269.7 yards passing per game. He'll get a good test on Saturday against a defense that doesn't wear down. 'He's done it with a lot of pressure,' Montgomery said. 'He continues to grow, and I think he's been a real bright spot.' THE RANKINGS Fickell talked to his players this week about being in the Top 25 for the second straight week, which has brought the program more attention from opponents. 'Sometimes there's that elephant in the room you've got to be able to address so we're not wondering what's going through these guys' heads,' Fickell said. STEADY RIDDER Desmond Ridder threw for 263 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 50 yards with another touchdown at Houston last week. TEN YEARS AGO Cincinnati is bringing back members of Brian Kelly's 2009 team that won the Big East with a 12-0 mark before losing to Tim Tebow's Florida team 51-24 in the Sugar Bowl. Kelly left for Notre Dame before the bowl game. ___ More AP college football: http://apnews.com/Collegefootball and http://www.twitter.com/AP_Top25
  • Quarterback Austin Kendall always wanted to lead his football team onto Oklahoma's Owen Field, seeking a win over a Big 12 Conference rival before another sellout crowd. He will, though he will be wearing a West Virginia jersey while doing so. Kendall, who spent the past three years as an understudy to Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray at Oklahoma, transferred to West Virginia when it became clear he probably wouldn't move into a starting role with the Sooners. He will get a shot at his former team Saturday when the Mountaineers (3-3, 1-2 Big 12) visit No. 5 Oklahoma (6-0, 3-0). It almost didn't happen. Kendall suffered a chest injury early during last Saturday's loss to Iowa State. West Virginia coach Neal Brown listed Kendall as questionable for most of the week before saying Thursday that Kendall indeed would start against the Sooners. He has started every game for the Mountaineers this season. Kendall was Mayfield's backup in 2016, then redshirted in 2017, when Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy. Murray won Oklahoma's starting job last season and also went on to win the Heisman. In his two non-redshirt seasons with the Sooners, Kendall played in seven games and completed 28 of 39 passes for 265 yards and three TDs without an interception. For West Virginia, he's completed 66% of his passes (126 of 191) for 1,247 yards and nine touchdowns with seven interceptions. Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley — who initially blocked Kendall's transfer to West Virginia before relenting — said it's an odd feeling to face one of his former quarterbacks. 'Guy was recruited and was here with us for three years, so it definitely feels a little strange,' Riley said. 'I've got to see bits and pieces of him. Obviously had a chance to study him a little bit more here this week. He's had some games where he's played really, really well. 'I'm sure he's champing at the bit to get back for this one. I would expect nothing less. I certainly hope he is healthy and always wish him the best.' HURTS LOOKS TO REBOUND Quarterback Jalen Hurts — whose transfer to Oklahoma led to Kendall's transfer to West Virginia — mostly has excelled in his first season with the Sooners after three years at Alabama. But he committed two costly red-zone turnovers (one interception, one fumble) in the first half against Texas that kept the game closer than the Sooners would have liked. Oklahoma still beat the Longhorns 34-27, but Hurts wasn't satisfied with that performance, saying he 'just made a couple of bad decisions and put the team in bad situations.' It's something Riley has discussed with Hurts. 'Your bad decisions can't be turnovers,' Riley said. 'They've got to be incomplete passes. He knows he's got to be better there.' O-FER Since joining the Big 12 with the 2012 season, West Virginia has beaten every league opponent except for Oklahoma. The closest the Mountaineers have come were in 2012 (a 50-49 Oklahoma win) and last season, when the Sooners won 59-56 in Morgantown. Oklahoma leads the series 9-2. West Virginia's last win over the Sooners came in the 2008 Fiesta Bowl, a 48-28 decision. The Mountaineers' other win in the series was in 1982, an upset of the ninth-ranked Sooners in Norman, 41-27. NOT DISCOURAGED Consecutive home losses to Texas and Iowa State have dampened the excitement surrounding West Virginia's 3-1 start, but Brown said the Mountaineers aren't discouraged heading into a tough stretch, with back-to-back games against Oklahoma and No. 18 Baylor. 'We're disappointed, but it's not doom-and-gloom in this building,' Brown said. 'We're not down and out. We've lost to three really good teams. We're playing 21 freshmen and sophomores right now. We're looking forward to finishing strong and it starts this week with a tremendous challenge but a great opportunity when we go to Norman.' CEEDEE FOR TDs Oklahoma receiver CeeDee Lamb has at least one touchdown catch in eight consecutive games, the longest active streak in the Football Bowl Subdivision. With three touchdowns last week against Texas, Lamb - a junior - now ranks third on Oklahoma's receiving touchdowns career list with 28, trailing only Ryan Broyles (45) and Mark Clayton (31), both of whom played four seasons for the Sooners. STREAKS Oklahoma has scored at least 34 points in 16 straight games, the longest such streak in school history, and in 27 of the last 28 games. The 15-game streak is tied for the second-longest nationally since at least 1980, behind Oregon (23 in 2011-12) and Florida State (16 in 2013-14). The last team to hold the Sooners under 34 points was Army, which lost 28-21 in overtime to the Sooners on Sept. 22, 2018. ___ More AP college football: https://apnews.com/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25
  • Oklahoma's unemployment rate held steady in September at 3.2%. The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission reported Friday that the jobless rate was unchanged from August and below the national unemployment rate of 3.5%. The commission reports an increase of 1,900 jobs in the education and health services sector and a gain of 900 jobs in trade, transportation and utilities. The increases were offset by the losses of 1,500 jobs in the leisure and hospitality industry, and declines of 1,000 jobs in financial services and 700 in government. The commission reports a total increase of more than 5,300 with jobs while the number of unemployed rose by nearly 600. Oklahoma's jobless rate has remained unchanged at 3.2% since May.
  • The last of three Alabama men charged in a fatal shooting in the Oklahoma Panhandle more than six years ago has pleaded guilty to murder in the case. Court records show 25-year-old Timothy Dees of Mobile was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole after pleading guilty Tuesday in Cimarron County District Court. Dees, 29-year-old Zachary Wilson of Mobile and 33-year-old Jeremy Scott of Semmes were charged in the June 2013 shooting death of 77-year-old Charles Nieman of Alva during an attempted robbery at a convenience store in Boise City, about 295 miles (475 kilometers) northwest of Oklahoma City. Dees and Wilson were arrested Feb. 6 in Mobile and Scott was arrested Feb. 8 near Denver. Wilson and Scott both pleaded no contest to murder charges in the case in August.
  • After its come-from-behind, 33-30 double-overtime victory over Texas Tech, No. 18 Baylor is a four-point underdog at Oklahoma State. That doesn't bother Baylor coach Matt Rhule, who is eager to see how his Bears (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) respond. 'They're coming off a bye week, we're going to their homecoming, there's a lot of things that are stacked against us, and we'll just to try to play football and try to have fun doing it,' Rhule said. 'People think we won't be able to handle the noise and they've had two weeks off. The pageantry and everything else that's around it, I love it. It's a hard place to win. But we like challenges and we're going to do our best.' Oklahoma State (4-2, 1-2 Big 12) is coming off a 45-35 loss at Texas Tech, followed by a bye week. Coach Mike Gundy is eager for a strong performance. 'This is a big week for Oklahoma State, obviously, with the largest homecoming in the country,' Gundy said. 'We are guesstimating 60, 70,000 people back in town. It is a really exciting time. It has been a great tradition that has carried on here for forever. The most difficult part for me is tickets. Everybody wants tickets - former players, pro players, but it is a good problem to have. We will have a full house and it will be a perfect time in the afternoon for some college football.' NEXT MAN UP The season-ending knee injury suffered by Baylor linebacker Clay Johnston diminishes the impact of the Bears' defense. Besides leading the team with 58 tackles (28 ahead of any teammate), including eight tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and one interception, the senior was also a key leader on and off the field. Rhule will rely on other players, particularly Johnston's backup, Terrel Bernard, to step up and help fill the void. 'Clay'll still be able to lead, he'll still be around,' Rhule said. 'Terrel's an excellent player so he'll go out and play at a high level.' RUNNING DOWN HILL Despite being off last week, Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard still leads the nation in rushing by 268 yards, having piled up 1,094 yards and 13 touchdowns (which ranks second). He has three 200-yard games this season, including the top two individual rushing performances in the FBS. BACK ON TRACK After rushing for just 92 yards on 27 carries (a 3.4-yard average), along with eight receptions for 34 yards, over the first four games, Baylor running back JaMycal Hasty has gained 167 yards on 18 touches the last two outings. That includes the game-winning, 5-yard touchdown run in the second overtime against Texas Tech last week. SANDERS REBOUND After turning the ball over five times in the last game (three interceptions and two fumbles), Oklahoma State redshirt freshman quarterback Spencer Sanders would like a stronger game. He was also sacked seven times against Texas Tech after going down just six times in the previous five games combined. Still, Ruhle is concerned about him. 'I think Sanders is unbelievably special,' Rhule said. 'You have to account for him on every play.' SACK ATTACK After sacking Texas Tech quarterback Jett Duffey five times last week, the Bears have 23 this season, ranking eighth in the nation. Defensive tackle James Lynch, who had 2.5 sacks last week, leads the way with 8.5, which is tied for second in the country. His 11.5 tackles for loss ranks fifth, while the team's total of 52 sits seventh. With 17.0 career sacks, Lynch is just 0.5 sacks shy of the Baylor all-time record set by Shawn Oakman (2013-15). ___ More AP college football: https://apnews.com/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25
