EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Quarterback Marcus Mariota passed for 221 yards and two touchdowns and ran for two more scores and No. 2 Oregon survived a slow start yesterday to beat Wyoming 48-14. Oregon (3-0) erased a 7-0 deficit with four second-quarter touchdowns to take command. Mariota became the fourth Oregon quarterback to pass for more than 7,000 yards.

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Connor Halliday, the nation's leading passer, threw for 544 yards and six touchdowns yesterday as Washington State beat Portland State 59-21. Isiah Myers caught 11 passes for 227 yards and three touchdowns for Washington State (1-2), which had opened the season with losses to Rutgers and Nevada but proved too much for FCS Portland State.

SEATTLE (AP) - Jed Lowrie drew a bases-loaded walk with two outs in the 10th inning to force in the tiebreaking run and lift the Oakland Athletics to a 3-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners last night. Luke Gregerson (5-1) pitched a perfect ninth to earn the win, and Sean Doolittle, reinstated from the disabled list one day earlier, pitched the 10th for his 21st save as Oakland remained a half-game ahead of Kansas City for the American League's first wild card.
