(AP) - Pittsburgh's success running the ball against Virginia Tech was reminiscent of the days when Tony Dorsett was piling up yards for the Panthers. The Panthers amassed 492 rushing yards for their most since the Dorsett-led Panthers ran for 530 against Army in 1975. Temple's Ryquell Armstead set a national season high with six rushing touchdowns against Houston. National rushing leader Jonathan Taylor goes over 1,500 yards.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Ezekiel Elliott had 151 yards rushing and his go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter helped the Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20. The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles fell to 4-5 with their third straight loss at home while the Cowboys improved to 4-5.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Ezekiel Elliott took one giant leap that may have saved Dallas' season. But it was Elliott's go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter helped the Cowboys finally hurdle the Super Bowl champs. The Cowboys showed a second-half spark _ and cooled the hot seat for coach Jason Garrett a few degrees _ in a 27-20 win over the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.

HOUSTON (AP) - James Harden scored a season-high 40 points and Chris Paul added 26 to help the Houston Rockets to their first home win of the season, 115-103, over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night. The Rockets, who had lost the last two games of a season-long five-game road trip, dropped their first four home games.

HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey is denying a report that says Carmelo Anthony's time with the team will end soon. Anthony, who was out for the second straight game on Sunday night with an illness, is in his first season with the Rockets after one year in Oklahoma City.

(AP) - In case you missed it in Week 10 of the NFL season: New York Jets coach Todd Bowles might not last long after a big loss to the Buffalo Bills and a quarterback who hadn't started in nearly two years. The Jets have lost four games in a row and are now 3-7. Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman knocked his team's home fans after its latest road victory.

(AP) - For some NBA referees like Leroy Richardson, the road to the league started in the military. Leroy Richardson and Rodney Mott are both Navy veterans, and the decisions they made during their military days _ unbeknownst to either at the time _ started them on their respective paths to the NBA. Fellow ref Matt Boland also served in the Connecticut National Guard.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Alex Robinson scored 23 points, Desmond Bane added 22 and No. 20 TCU never trailed after struggling in the opener, rolling to a 79-62 victory against Oral Roberts. The Horned Frogs were sluggish opening the season as a ranked team for the first time in 20 years, trailing by as many as 11 points before rallying to beat Cal State Bakersfield. TCU took the opposite approach against the Golden Eagles, running out to a 23-6 lead.
