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.

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.
