Ricky Williams rushed 37 times for 150 yards as Texas beat Nebraska, 20-16, in a huge upset on the road in Lincoln.
Gino Torretta completed 28 of 40 passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns in Miami’s 35-23 victory over West Virginia.

Jim Plunkett completed 13 of 26 passes for 210 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions as Stanford beat Oregon State, 48-10.
Easily the most famous Heisman moment on Halloween as Billy Cannon‘s 89-yard punt return sunk No. 3 Ole Miss, 7-3. Cannon rushed 12 times for 48 yards in that game and had three punt returns for 120 yards. Here’s a video look at the game:
John Lattner wasn’t much of a factor in this one, which saw Notre Dame beat Navy, 38-7
