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.

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 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.

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.

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.
