MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — N’Kosi Perry threw four touchdown passes, and No. 17 Miami pulled off its biggest comeback ever against Florida State by rallying from 20 points down to top the Seminoles 28-27 on Saturday night.
Brevin Jordan’s 41-yard touchdown grab with just under 12 minutes left put the Hurricanes (5-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) ahead for good, as Miami rallied from a 27-7 secondhalf deficit.
The win was Miami’s first at home over Florida State (3-3, 1-3) since 2004.
ALABAMA 65, ARKANSAS 31
Tua Tagovailoa passed for 334 yards and four touchdowns, and the No. 1 Crimson Tied ran their winning streak against the host Razorbacks to 12.
It took just one play for Alabama (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) to set the tone as Tagovailoa hit tight end Irv Smith Jr. on a pass across the middle that Smith took 76 yards to the end zone and a 7-0 lead 21 seconds into the game.
OHIO ST. 49, INDIANA 26
Dwayne Haskins Jr. passed for a career-best 455 yards and school record-tying six touchdowns, and the thirdranked Buckeyes pulled away in the fourth quarter at Columbus, Ohio.
Ohio State (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) was forced to work hard by quarterback Peyton Ramsey and an Indiana offense that took advantage of plenty of early mistakes.
MISSISSIPPI ST. 23 AUBURN 9
Nick Fitzgerald ran for 195 yards and two touchdowns, and the Bulldogs’ defense had another dominant performance in an upset victory over the No. 8 Tigers in Starkville, Miss.
GEORGIA 41, VANDERBILT 13
Jake Fromm threw three touchdown passes, including a 75-yarder to Terry Godwin, and the second-ranked Bulldogs routed the Commodores in Athens, Ga., improving to 6-0 and 4-0 in the Southeastern Conference.
CLEMSON 63 WAKE FOREST 3
Travis Etienne rushed for 167 yards and three touchdowns, and the No. 4 Tigers ran for 471 yards in a rout of the Demon Deacons at Winston-Salem, N.C.

NORTHWESTERN 29 MICHIGAN ST. 19
Clayton Thorson threw for 373 yards and three touchdowns, and the Wildcats recovered from another second-half slip to upset the No. 20 Spartans in East Lansing, Mich.
Michigan State (3-2, 1-1 Big Ten) entered with the nation’s top-ranked run defense and held Northwestern (2-3, 2-1) to 8 yards on the ground, but it didn’t matter. The Wildcats moved the ball consistently well through the air, and Michigan State’s offense was mostly inept.
COLORADO 28 ARIZONA ST. 21
