In Eugene, Ore., Jordan Williamson hit a 37-yard field goal in overtime and No. 14 Stanford upset top-ranked Oregon, 17-14, late Saturday to deny the Ducks a chance to clinch the Pac-12 North and derail their straight shot at the BCS championship game.

If both Stanford and Oregon finish with wins in their final games next weekend, both will finish with one conference loss, which means Stanford will win the head-to-head matchup and go to the Pac-12 championship game for a chance to play in the Rose Bowl.

Stanford (9-2, 7-1) will visit No. 17 UCLA, which defeated No. 21 Southern Cal, 38-28, earlier in the day to claim the Pac-12 South. Oregon (10-1, 7-1) will play rival Oregon State in the annual Civil War rivalry game in Corvallis.

Baylor 52, Kansas State 24 - Glasco Martin ran for three TDs, Lache Seastrunk had 185 yards rushing with an 80-yard score, and the Bears (5-5, 2-5 Big 12) upset the No. 2 Wildcats (10-1, 7-1) to again mix up the BCS picture with a late-season victory in Waco, Texas.

K-State quarterback Collin Klein may be a Heisman Trophy front-runner no more after throwing three interceptions and getting sacked twice. He threw for 286 yards, but had just 39 yards on 17 carries.

Notre Dame 38, Wake Forest 0 - Everett Golson threw three TD passes and Cierre Wood scored on a 68-yard run on the game's fourth play as the No. 3 Fighting Irish (11-0) beat the Demon Deacons (5-6) in South Bend, Ind., to put themselves in position for a national title.

Wood rushed for 150 yards, while Tyler Eifert had six catches, giving him 130 for his career, breaking the school record of 128 set by Ken MacAfee in 1977.

Alabama 49, Western Carolina 0 - Eddie Lacy rushed for three first-half TDs and AJ McCarron passed for his 21st TD for the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide (10-1) as they trounced the Catamounts (1-10) in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Texas A&M 47, Sam Houston State 28 - Johnny Manziel threw for 267 yards and three TDs, ran for 100 yards and two more scores, and even tried unsuccessfully to kick an extra point as the No. 9 Aggies (9-2) defeated the Bearkats (8-3) in College Station, Texas.
