T25-OHIO STATE-PENN STATE
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Quarterback J.T. Barrett scored twice in overtime to help No. 13 Ohio State escape with a 31-24 double-overtime victory over Penn State on Saturday night.
The Buckeyes (6-1, 3-0 Big Ten) built a 17-0 lead and were cruising when Penn State's Anthony Zettel intercepted Barrett's pass and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.
Christian Hackenberg threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Saeed Blacknall early in the fourth, and Penn State (4-3, 1-3) tied it on Sam Ficken's 31-yard field goal with 9 seconds left in regulation.
In the first overtime, Penn State tailback Bill Belton took a direct snap from the Wildcat formation and scored on a 10-yard run. The Buckeyes countered when Barrett carried two straight times, the first for 17 yards and the second 5 yards for a touchdown.
Penn State was called for a personal foul on the touchdown, giving Ohio State the ball at the 12 to start the second overtime. With a third-and-2 from the 4, Barrett powered through the middle of Penn State's defense for a touchdown. Joey Bosa sacked Penn State's Hackenberg on a fourth-and-5 play to end the game.
Ezekiel Elliott ran for 109 yards on 26 carries for Ohio State, and Barrett added 75 yards on 20 attempts. The Buckeyes have won five straight games and 19 in a row in the conference.
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland Raiders have activated cornerback DJ Hayden from the physically unable to perform list and promoted defensive end Denico Autry from the practice squad.
The Raiders also placed defensive end LaMarr Woodley and safety Usama Young on season-ending injured reserve Saturday to make room on the roster.
Hayden has been sidelined since sustaining a stress fracture to his right foot in May. He was finally able to start practice earlier this month and will be available for Sunday's game in Cleveland.
Hayden was Oakland's first-round pick in 2013. He played eight games as a rookie with one interception.
Woodley injured his biceps last week, and Young injured his knee.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cavaliers have exercised the fourth-year contract option on guard Dion Waiters, a former first-round pick who could have a breakout season in Cleveland's new offense.
The Cavs were expected to pick up the option worth $5.1 million on Waiters and did so Saturday. Waiters averaged 15.3 point last season, but could get more open shots now that LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will be occupying defenses.
Waiters started just 24 games last season but he will be with the first five in the backcourt alongside Irving this season. Waiters spent the offseason working on his jump shot.
The Cavs selected Waiters with the No. 4 overall pick in 2012.
The team also waived forward Shane Edwards, meaning point guard A.J. Price, forward Lou Amundson and undrafted rookie center Alex Kirk made the final 15-man roster.
Cleveland opens the season on Thursday at home against New York.
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Terry Swanson's 19-yard touchdown run with 38 seconds to play made the difference in Toledo's 42-35 victory over the University of Massachusetts on Saturday.
Swanson's game-winner was his second touchdown of the day and came with the score tied 35-35. He had 97 yards for the Rockets (5-3, 4-0 Mid-American). Kareem Hunt ran for 198 yards and a score and Logan Woodside passed for 225 yards and three touchdowns.
Three Blake Frohnapfel touchdown passes -- two to Jalen Williams and one to Shakur Nesmith -- had UMass up 20-14 at halftime.
In the third, Woodside threw a 42-yard scoring strike to Corey Jones. Hunt later scored from 36 yards to give Toledo its first lead of the game, 28-20.
Woodside and Frohnapfel traded touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to tie the game 35-35 with 5:57 left.
Frohnapfel threw for 438 yards and five touchdowns for the Minutemen (2-7, 2-3).
KENT ST-MIAMI (OHIO)
OXFORD, Ohio (AP) -- Andrew Hendrix ran for 104 yards and the only touchdown as Miami (Ohio) held off Kent State 10-3 on Saturday.
Hendrix went 19 yards on a quarterback draw late in the first quarter to cap a nine-play, 88-yard drive for the RedHawks (2-7, 2-3 Mid-American Conference). The score came on the first play after a personal foul on Miami on a first-and-goal from the 5.
Kent State (1-7, 0-3) converted a fourth-and-6 from the Ohio 38 with 3:43 to play but Nick Holley was stopped for no gain by Zach Smierciak and Mitch Winters on fourth-and-1 from the 20 with 2:20 left. The previous play, a third-and-1, J'Terius stopped quarterback Colin Reardon.
Miami finished with 287 yards, two more than the Golden Flashes in the evenly matched game that saw just 26 seconds difference in time of possession.
