Tucson, Ariz. • Matt Scott had 469 total yards and accounted for four touchdowns, helping Arizona overcome a huge day by Southern California's Marqise Lee to beat the 10th-ranked Trojans 39-36 on Saturday.

Lee caught 16 passes for a Pac-12-record 345 yards and two touchdowns to help USC (6-2, 4-2 Pac-12) build a 15-point lead midway through the third quarter.

But Scott led Arizona (5-3, 2-1) back, throwing for 369 yards and three touchdowns, including a 7-yarder to David Richards that put the Wildcats up 39-28 with just more than 5 minutes left.

The Trojans answered quickly with Silas Redd's second rushing touchdown, from 10 yards, but remain stuck on 799 wins as a program after Matt Barkley's last-ditch pass into the end zone was swatted down.

Washington 20, Oregon State 17 • Bishop Sankey ran for 92 yards and two touchdowns, Travis Coons kicked a 30-yard field goal with 1:20 left and Washington took advantage of four interceptions from Oregon State's Sean Mannion in an upset of the seventh-ranked Beavers.

Oregon State (6-1, 4-1 Pac-12) was trying for the first 7-0 start in school history. Instead it became the second AP Top 10 team to be upset by the Huskies at home this season. Washington knocked off then-No. 8 Stanford 17-13 in late September.

Mannion, returning from minor knee surgery, threw interceptions on consecutive possessions early in the fourth quarter after Oregon State had rallied from a 10-0 halftime deficit to pull even.

Oregon 70, Colorado 14 • Kenjon Barner rushed for 104 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 2 Oregon easily took care of Colorado in Eugene, Ore.

De'Anthony Thomas rushed for another score and added a 73-yard punt return for a touchdown before most of the Ducks' offensive starters were pulled midway through the second quarter. Redshirt freshman quarterback Marcus Mariota passed for 136 yards and two TDs.

UCLA 45, Arizona State 43 • Ka'imi Fairbairn kicked a 33-yard field goal as the game ended and UCLA escaped with a victory in Tempe, Ariz.

Freshman Brett Hundley, playing a few miles from where he grew up, drove the Bruins (6-2, 3-2 Pac-12) into field-goal range after Tyler Kelly's 7-yard touchdown pass to D.J. Foster put the Sun Devils (5-3, 3-2) ahead 43-42 with 1:33 to play.

Stanford 24, Washington State 17 • Ed Reynolds returned an interception for a touchdown and No. 19 Stanford sacked Jeff Tuel 10 times to overcome a sloppy offensive effort.

Reynolds stepped in front of Tuel's pass for the safety's fourth interception — and second returned for a score — this season early in the fourth quarter. He ran 25 yards untouched into the end zone to give the Cardinal a two-touchdown lead and highlight another dominant defense effort that held the Cougars (2-6, 0-5 Pac-12) to minus-16 yards rushing. —
