Miami’s biggest rally tops FSU
Perry’s four touchdowns fuel Hurricanes’ comeback
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 less than 12 minutes left put the Hurricanes (5-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) ahead for good, as Miami rallied from a 27-7 second-half deficit.
The win was Miami’s first at home over Florida State (3-3, 1-3) since 2004, snapping a six-game slide in South Florida against its archrival. Alabama 65, Arkansas 31: Tua Tagovailoa passed for 334 yards and four touchdowns as No. 1 Alabama ran its winning streak against Arkansas to 12 straight.
georgia 41, Vanderbilt 13: Jake Fromm threw three touchdown passes, including a 75-yarder to Terry Godwin, and No. 2 Georgia beat Vanderbilt to gain momentum for a crucial stretch of four Southeastern Conference games. The Bulldogs gained momentum for next week’s visit to No. 5 Louisiana State. Georgia then plays Florida, Kentucky and Auburn.
Ohio state 49, Indiana 26: Dwayne Haskins Jr. passed for a career-best 455 yards and six touchdowns and No. 3 Ohio State pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat Indiana.
Clemson 63, Wake Forest 3: Travis Etienne rushed for 167 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 4 Clemson ran for 471 yards in a rout of Wake Forest. Three Tigers had at least 100 yards rushing, the first time they’ve done that since 2006 during their most productive rushing performance since 1981.
Florida 27, LSU 19: Lamical Perine scored twice on short runs, including one after a trick play in the fourth quarter, and No. 22 Florida beat fifth-ranked LSU in another nail-biter in the series. Brad Stewart’s 25-yard interception return for a touchdown — the first pick Joe Burrow has thrown this season — essentially sealed the victory for the Gators (5-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference).
Notre Dame 45, Virginia Tech 23: Dexter Williams ran for three touchdowns, including a 97-yarder, and No. 6 Notre Dame beat No. 24 Virginia Tech.
Texas 48, Oklahoma 45: Freshman Cameron Dicker kicked a 40-yard field goal with nine seconds left to give 19th-ranked Texas a victory over No. 7 Oklahoma after Kyler Murray had rallied the Sooners with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Sam Ehlinger ran for three touchdowns and threw for 314 yards with two more scores for Texas (5-1, 3-0 Big 12), which has its first five-game winning streak since 2013. The sophomore quarterback converted thirdand-3 on Texas’ final drive with a 4-yard keeper and his 8-yard draw to the middle of the field set up the kick.
Mississippi state 23, Auburn 9: Nick Fitzgerald ran for 195 yards and two touchdowns and Mississippi State’s defense had another dominant performance in an upset victory over No. 8 Auburn.
West Virginia 38, Kansas 22: Will Grier threw four touchdown passes, and committed four turnovers, and West Virginia beat Kansas. West Virginia (5-0, 3-0 Big 12) has won its first five games for the second time in three seasons. The Mountaineers had no trouble moving the ball but Grier’s efforts to throw into tight coverage near the goal line cost his team plenty of points. The Heisman Trophy hopeful was intercepted three times in the first half either in the end zone or at the goal line, two of them by cornerback Hasan Defense. All three of Grier’s interceptions occurred when West Virginia had driven inside the Kansas 15-yard line.
Washington 31, UCLA 24: Myles Gaskin rushed for 116 yards and two touchdowns, Jake Browning passed for 265 yards and Washington beat UCLA.

Texas A&M 20, Kentucky 14 (OT): Trayveon Williams flipped into the end zone on a 10-yard run in overtime to give Texas A&M the victory over No. 13 Kentucky. The Wildcats’ Miles Butler missed a 43-yard field goal to start overtime, with the ball bouncing back off the crossbar, and the Aggies capitalized with Williams’ touchdown run four plays later.
Michigan 42, Maryland 21: Shea Patterson threw for a season-high 282 yards and three touchdowns to help No. 15 Michigan brush off a sloppy start to beat Maryland.
Wisconsin 41, Nebraska 24: Jonathan Taylor ran for 221 yards and three scores, including a career-best 88-yarder in the fourth quarter, and No. 16 Wisconsin beat winless Nebraska.

Colorado 28, Arizona state 21: Wide receiver Laviska Shenault scored four touchdowns and 21st-ranked Colorado beat Arizona State for just the second time in the program’s history. The Buffaloes (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12) overcame the ejection of star linebacker Nate Landman in the second quarter.
North Carolina state 28, Boston College 23: Reggie Gallaspy ran for a careerbest 104 yards and two touchdowns while No. 23 North Carolina State held on after squandering most of a big second-half lead.
Iowa state 48, Oklahoma state 42: Third-string quarterback Brock Purdy completed 18 of 23 passes for 318 yards and four touchdowns to help lead Iowa State to a victory over No. 25 Oklahoma State.
