Around the Big Sky ...

• At Pocatello, Idaho, Tanner Gueller threw for 341 yards and three touchdowns and led a fourth-quarter comeback as Idaho State beat Cal Poly 38-34. After Casey Sublette's 29-yard field goal put the Mustangs up 34-24 with 11:50 left, Gueller led Idaho State (3-2, 1-1 Big Sky) on a 65-yard drive in 97 seconds and connected with Michael Dean on a 30-yard touchdown pass.

• At Cheney, Wash., Gage Gubrud threw two touchdown passes and had a third receiving, all in the first quarter, and Eastern Washington went on to defeat Sacramento State 52-31. Gubrud finished with 447 yards, a week after throwing for a school record 549, on 35-of-50 passing and five touchdowns, each to different receivers.

• At Flagstaff, Ariz., Case Cookus threw for three scores, ran for another and Elijah Marks had a 100-yard kickoff return and Northern Arizona rolled to a 48-20 win over Northern Colorado. Taylor Powell also had an 85-yard interception return for the Lumberjacks. 

Around the Frontier ...

• At Ashland, Ore., Rocky Mountain College (3-3, 3-2) lost a heartbreaker to No. 9 Southern Oregon after a two-point pass attempt fell incomplete with 1:25 left in the game, preserving the Raiders' 24-23 win. Trailing 24-10 in the fourth quarter, freshman quarterback Drew Korf helped engineer two touchdown drives, both passes to receiver Max Gray, to bring Rocky within the one point. The Battlin’ Bears opted to go for the win, but Korf’s pass to Darneail Jenkins was tipped by a defensive lineman. Southern Oregon (5-0, 5-0) quarterback Tanner Trosin threw for 323 yards, a touchdown and also ran for a score.

• At Mayville, N.D., Montana State-Northern used Trey Blanchard's 186 rushing yards and one touchdown to break into the win column by beating Mayville State University 43-29. The Lights (1-4) raced ahead 19-0, but the game was knotted at 22-all going into the fourth quarter. MSU-Northern's Dylan Cook, Blanchard and Bryan Peters scored rushing touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Creighton Pfau passed for 349 yards and four TDs for the Comets (0-5).

Around the region ...

• At Laramie, Wyo., Josh Allen returned to form by throwing three touchdowns while the defense and special teams added three more in Wyoming's 45-10 win over Texas State. Allen's 8-yard TD pass to Austin Conway midway through the third quarter moved him into tenth place in school history with 4,131 passing yards. Allen took over 10th place in career total offense with 4,738 yards.
