After losses in three of their previous four games, the Cowboys leaned on their defense in a 27-17 win over the Saints in New Orleans on Thursday night.

New Orleans quarterback Taysom Hill threw four interceptions, including three in the fourth quarter, one of which was returned for a touchdown, as Dallas held off the Saints.

Dallas' Dak Prescott threw for 238 yards, one touchdown and one interception, while Tony Pollard led the team on the ground with 71 rushing yards on seven carries, including a touchdown.

In both college and high school football this week, the stakes are high with No. 9 Baylor and No. 5 Oklahoma State squaring off for the Big 12 title on Saturday, with the Cowboys the conference's best chance at landing a team in the College Football Playoff.

We also talk about the wild week in college coaching with The Dallas Morning News' Joseph Hoyt as Lincoln Riley bolted Oklahoma for USC, Sonny Dykes moved from SMU to TCU and the Mustangs hired Miami offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee as their next coach.

After a wild week in the world of college football coaching, TCU and SMU both have new head coaches. Sonny Dykes went from the Mustangs to the Horned Frogs, while SMU hired Miami offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee. Joseph Hoyt, who covers SMU for The Dallas Morning News explains how it all came together.
