  NOV 7 CONFERENCE USA DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Louisiana Tech DB Myles Brooks recorded two interceptions, two tackles and a pass breakup in the Bulldogs' 40-24 win over Middle Tennessee on Saturday.

The Pflugerville, Texas, product is just the fifth Conference USA player to record multiple interceptions in a game this season.

  Craig Williams ran for a career-high 192 yards and two touchdowns, and Baylor defeated Oklahoma 38-35 on Saturday to keep its Big 12 title hopes alive. Williams, a fifth-year junior, had rushed for 456 yards his entire injury-plagued career before exploding against the Sooners. His top performance this season had been 68 yards rushing against BYU, and he did not play in Baylor's previous two games. In all, the Bears (6-3, 4-2 Big 12) ran for 281 yards and five touchdowns to claim their third straight win.

Oklahoma's Dillon Gabriel passed for 261 yards and two touchdowns and ran nine times for 70 yards and another score. But he threw three interceptions - all in the first half - after just throwing one all season before Saturday's game. Eric Gray rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns and caught eight passes for 58 yards for the Sooners (5-4, 2-4), who had won two straight. Despite Gabriel's mistakes, Baylor led just 24-21 at the break because the Sooners gained 334 yards in the first half. Qualan Jones' 10-yard touchdown run with 9:15 remaining in the fourth quarter gave Baylor a 38-28 lead. Gray's 1-yard score with 4:05 remaining cut the Bears' lead to 38-35, but Baylor ran out the clock on the next possession. - Baylor/AP College Football
