Miz­zou tops No. 13 Florida in the Swamp

The Modesto Bee (Sunday) - - Sports -

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.

NO­TABLE

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.
