Mizzou tops No. 13 Florida in the Swamp
Drew Lock picked apart Florida’s defense for the second straight year, throwing three touchdown passes to lead Missouri to a 38-17 victory against the 13th-ranked Gators on Saturday.
Lock completed 24 of 32 passes for 250 yards, with scoring throws to Albert Okwuegbunam, Kam Scott and Emanuel Hall that stunned the Swamp.
The Gators (6-3, 4-3 SEC) won’t have to face the senior and possible first-round draft pick again.
They might have seen the last of Feleipe Franks, too.
Coach Dan Mullen benched Franks late in the third quarter – the home crowd cheered wildly – and backup Kyle Trask promptly directed a 75yard touchdown drive in which he converted two fourth downs. Trask found Josh Hammond in the end zone on the second one for a 7-yard score that made it 35-17.
The Tigers (5-4, 1-4) responded with a field goal that essentially sealed their first SEC win of the season and sent fans scrambling for the exits.
No. 2 Clemson 77, Louisville 16: Travis Etienne ran for 153 yards and two touchdowns to help the host Tigers (6-0, ACC, No. 2 CFP) move to 9-0 for the third time in four years. The Tigers had five rushing touchdowns, including 350-pound defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence, whose 2-yard TD run was part of Clemson’s “Fridge Package.” Louisville is 2-7, 0- 6. No. 3 Notre Dame 31, Northwestern 21: Ian Book threw for threw for two touchdowns and ran for a 23-yard score in the closing minutes to help keep the visiting Fighting Irish (9-0, No. 4 CFP) in line for a playoff spot. The Wildcats (5-4) had won four in a row. No. 5 Michigan 42, No. 14 Penn State 7: Shea Patterson accounted for three touchdowns and the host Wolverines (8-1, 6-0 Big Ten, No. 5 CFP) put together a dominant performance on defense. The Wolverines seek a conference championship for the first time since 2004 and their first spot in the College Football Playoff. The Nittany Lions (6-3, 3-3, No. 14 CFP) scored with 1:59 left.
No. 6 Georgia 34, No. 11 Kentucky 17: D’Andre Swift ran for a career-high 156 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries against Kentucky’s vaunted defense and visiting Georgia (8-1, 6-1, No. 6 CFP) wrapped up its second straight SEC Eastern Division title. Kentucky ( 7-2, 5-2, No. 9 CFP) has never reached the SEC championship game.
No. 10 Ohio State 36, Nebraska 31: J.K. Dobbins ran for three touchdowns and Dwayne Haskins Jr. passed for two more as the host Buckeyes (8-1, 5-1 Big Ten, No. 10 CFP) rallied in the second half. Nebraska (2-7, 1-5) freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez bested Haskins, throwing for 266 yards and a touchdown, and rushing for two more.
Arizona State 38, No. 16 Utah 20: Manny Wilkins threw three touchdown passes to N’Keal Harry, and host Arizona State knocked the Utes (6-3, 4-3 Pac-12) out of sole possession of first place in Pac-12 South. The Utes (6-3, 4-3 Pac-12) lost quarterback Tyler Huntley to an apparent shoulder or arm injury in the third quarter. Arizona State (5-4, 3-3), with consecutive victories over USC and Utah, is a half-game out of first place.
Purdue 38, No. 19 Iowa 36: Spencer Evans made a 25-yard field goal with 8 seconds left to give host Purdue an upset win.
