Lock burns Florida again, Miz­zou wins in Swamp

The State (Sunday) - - College Football -

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.

For­tu­nately for the Ga­tors (6-3, 4-3 SEC), they won’t have to face the se­nior and pos­si­ble firstround 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.


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.

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. 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.

No. 12 West Vir­ginia 42, No. 15 Texas 41: West Vir­ginia’s Will Grier threw a 33-yard touch­down pass to Gary Jen­nings with 16 sec­onds left, and then ran in the 2-point con­ver­sion for the vis­it­ing Moun­taineers (7-1, 5-1 Big 12, No. 13 CFP).

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.

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.

No. 22 Syra­cuse 41, Wake For­est 24: Eric Dungey rushed for 119 yards and a touch­down and Jarveon Howard ran for two scores to help the vis­it­ing Orange (7-2, 4-2, No. 19 CFP) win. No. 24 Bos­ton Col­lege 31, Vir­ginia Tech 21: Travis Levy ran for two touch­downs for the vis­it­ing Ea­gles (7-2, 4-1 ACC), who set them­selves up for a huge matchup at home with sec­ond-ranked Clem­son in the At­lantic Di­vi­sion next Sat­ur­day. Auburn 28, No. 25 Texas A&M 24: Seth Wil­liams caught an 11-yard touch­down pass from Jar­rett Stid­ham with 1:41 left to help host Auburn (6-3, 3-3 SEC) rally. The Tigers sput­tered early on of­fense but fin­ished with a 14point out­burst over the fi­nal 5:14 and the de­fense came up with big stops.
