November 08, 2009|Associated Press

at No. 4 Cincinnati 47, Connecticut 45: Zach Collaros kept the Bearcats unbeaten with the second-best passing effort in school history, one that will make it tough to send him back to the bench. Cincinnati's near-perfect replacement threw for 480 yards and a touchdown, ran for two more scores and led a clinching touchdown drive in the closing minutes to beat the Huskies. In three games since taking over for injured Tony Pike, Collaros is 70 for 89 for 1,100 yards and eight touchdown passes.

at No. 14 Pittsburgh 37, Syracuse 10: Greg Williams' 51-yard interception return for a touchdown late in the first half got the slow-starting Panthers going to extend their best start to a season since 1982. Dion Lewis ran for 110 yards and a touchdown for the freshman's sixth 100-yard game.

at West Virginia 17, Louisville 9: Jarrett Brown threw a touchdown pass, but the Mountaineers struggled to the victory.
