LOS ANGELES — Andrew Furney kicked a 41-yard field goal with 3:03 to play, and Washington State beat No. 25 USC 10-7 Saturday night for its first victory at the Coliseum in 13 years.

Damante Horton returned an interception 70 yards for a tying score in the final seconds of the first half for Washington State (1-1, 1-0 Pac-12), and he made the clinching interception with 2:18 to play in the Cougars’ first win over the Trojans anywhere since 2002.

It’s not exactly a signature win for second-year coach Mike Leach — but it’s the ugliest moment yet for embattled USC coach Lane Kiffin, who calls the Trojans’ plays.

Kiffin’s two-quarterback offense managed just 193 yards on 63 plays, with no pass completion longer than 8 yards.

No. 2 Oregon 59, Virginia 10: In Charlottesville, Va., De’Anthony Thomas ran for 124 yards and three touchdowns, Marcus Mariota threw for two touchdowns and ran 71 yards for another score, and Oregon started fast and completely manhandled Virginia.

The Ducks (2-0), who gained a school-record 772 yards last week in beating Nicholls State, finished with 557 yards in their 16th consecutive victory on an opponent’s field.

No. 5 Stanford 34, San Jose State 13: In Stanford, Calif., Tyler Gaffney ran for 104 yards and two touchdowns in an impressive return to the Cardinal after playing baseball in the minors last year.

Kevin Hogan threw for 207 yards and two touchdowns for Stanford in its ninth straight win. Oregon State 33, Hawaii 14: In Corvallis, Ore., Sean Mannion threw for 372 yards and four touchdowns and the Beavers rebounded from a stunning loss in their season opener with a 33-14 victory over Hawaii on Saturday.

Brandin Cooks had seven catches for 92 yards and two scores for the Beavers (1-1), who fell 49-46 at home last week to lower-division Eastern Washington.

California 37, Portland State 30: In Berkeley, Calif., freshman quarterback Jared Goff passed for 485 yards and two touchdowns to give former UA assistant Sonny Dykes his first win at California. Goff has back-to-back 400-yard games.

Utah 70, Weber State 7: In Salt Lake City, Travis Wilson had two long touchdown runs and threw for three more scores, all in the first half for the Utes. The blowout marked the most points by Utah (2-0) since an 82-6 victory over UTEP in 1973. The Wildcats are 1-1.

Colorado 38, Central Arkansas 24: In Boulder, Colo.,Paul Richardson topped 200 yards receiving for the second time in six days, and his second touchdown grab helped Colorado outlast FCS power Central Arkansas.

In winning coach Mike MacIntyre’s home debut, the Buffaloes (2-0) snapped a six-game losing streak at Folsom Field and improved to 2-2 against lower-tier schools.
