Some brief college football news from today's action:

Michigan State has now reeled off seven straight wins to start a season for the first time since the Spartans' famous 1966 campaign.

Oklahoma State won its first game at Texas Tech since 1944. The two schools met only sparingly until becoming Big 12 conference mates in 1996, however, so the Cowboys' losing streak in Lubbock is not as long as the 66-year gap would suggest. I've tried looking up the historical record of games between the teams, but there seems to be some conflicting information. Suffice it to say that Oklahoma State (formerly Oklahoma A&M) had a winless streak in Lubbock of 10 losses and either 1 or 2 ties, before today. Including today's game, Cowboy kicker Dan Bailey is now a perfect 13-for-13 on field-goal attempts this season, which includes two successful attempts from 50-plus yards in OSU's game prior to facing Texas Tech.
