No. 1 LSU 58, Mis­sis­sippi 37

OXFORD, Miss. — Joe Bur­row threw for 489 yards and five touch­downs and LSU built a big lead and held off Mis­sis­sippi.

Com­ing off an emo­tional 46-41 home win at Alabama last week, the Tigers (10-0,

6-0 South­east­ern Con­fer­ence) scored on four of their first five pos­ses­sions jump out to a 28-0 lead over the Rebels (4-7, 2-5).

The teams com­bined for 1,328 yards of to­tal of­fense, in­clud­ing 714 by the Tigers. Bur­row en­hanced his Heis­man Tro­phy front-run­ner sta­tus, com­plet­ing 32 of 42 passes, in­clud­ing touch­down passes of 34, 51 and 61 yards to Ja’Marr Chase (227 yards) and 12 and 7 yards to Justin Jef­fer­son (112 yards).

No. 2 Ohio State 56, Rut­gers 21

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Justin Fields threw for a ca­reer-high 305 yards and matched his best with four touch­down passes to lead Ohio State.

Fa­vored by a whop­ping 51 points, the Buck­eyes (10-0, 7-0 Big Ten) rolled to their 16th straight win over the past two sea­sons. J.K. Dob­bins ran for two touch­downs and cor­ner­back Shaun Wade set up two early TDs with an in­ter­cep­tion and a forced fum­ble.

No. 3 Clem­son 53, Wake For­est 3

CLEM­SON, S.C. — Trevor Lawrence tied his ca­reer high with four touch­downs, three to Tee Hig­gins, and Clem­son won its 26th straight game and com­pleted a sec­ond-straight per­fect At­lantic Coast Con­fer­ence reg­u­lar sea­son.

The Tigers (11-0, 8-0, No. 3 CFP) opened quickly and, af­ter an un­com­fort­able stretch of four se­ries with just a field goal, turned it on again right be­fore half­time to win their 11th in a row over the De­mon Dea­cons (7-3, 3-3).

No. 4 Alabama 38, Mis­sis­sippi State 7

STARKVILLE, Miss. — Tua Tago­v­ailoa sus­tained a sea­so­nend­ing hip in­jured be­ing dragged down late in the first half on what was likely his fi­nal se­ries of the day in No. 4 Alabama’s 38-7 vic­tory over Mis­sis­sippi State on Satur­day. Tago­v­ailoa was in­jured af­ter a scram­ble when he was tack­led from be­hind by Bull­dogs line­backer Leo Lewis. The star quar­ter­back needed help get­ting to his feet and was carted off the field with 3:01 left in the sec­ond quar­ter.

The ju­nior had been nurs­ing an an­kle in­jury that needed surgery four weeks ago and caused him to miss a game and a half. Alabama coach Nick Sa­ban said the in­jury Satur­day was un­re­lated to the an­kle. Sa­ban called it a “freak in­jury.” Sa­ban told ESPN at half­time the plan was to re­move Tago­v­ailoa from the game be­fore the se­ries when the quar­ter­back was in­jured. Alabama was al­ready up 35-7, but it was de­cided to let Tago­v­ailoa play one pos­ses­sion to get some work in the two-minute drill.

Tago­v­ailoa was flown by he­li­copter to the St. Vin­cent’s Med­i­cal Cen­ter in Birmingham, Alabama, and was ruled out for the sea­son Satur­day night.

Tago­v­ailoa was 14 of 18 for 256 yards and two touch­down passes against Mis­sis­sippi State, giv­ing him 31 TD passes on the sea­son. He was re­placed in the sec­ond half by Mac Jones, who went 7 for 11 for 94 yards.

The Crim­son Tide (9-1, 6-1 South­east­ern Con­fer­ence) were com­ing off a 46-41 loss to LSU that nudged it out of Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off po­si­tion to fifth in the lat­est se­lec­tion com­mit­tee rank­ings.

No. 5 Ge­or­gia 21, No. 13 Auburn 14

AUBURN, Ala. — Jake Fromm passed for three touch­downs and Ge­or­gia’s de­fense had two late stops, help­ing the Bull­dogs clinch the South­east­ern Con­fer­ence East­ern Di­vi­sion ti­tle.

The Bull­dogs (9-1, 6-1 SEC, No. 4 CFP) sailed through three quar­ters with a 21-0 lead be­fore Auburn (7-3, 4-3) ral­lied in the fourth.

Ge­or­gia held on to be­come the first team to win three con­sec­u­tive SEC East ti­tles since Florida won five in a row from 1992-96.

Fromm was 13-of-28 pass­ing for just 110 yards, but had a 51yard touch­down pass to Do­minick Blay­lock and a pair of 5-yarders to Eli Wolf and Brian Her­rien. Swift ran for 106 yards on 17 car­ries.

No. 6 Ore­gon vs. Ari­zona, late No. 23 Iowa 23, No. 7 Min­nesota 19

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Nate Stan­ley threw for two touch­down passes and Tyler Good­son ran for a score and Iowa handed Min­nesota its first loss.

The Hawkeyes (7-3, 4-3

Big Ten) struck quickly, scor­ing touch­downs on their first three pos­ses­sions, then held off Min­nesota’s charge in the sec­ond half for their first vic­tory over a ranked op­po­nent this sea­son.

The Go­phers (9-1, 6-1, No. 8 CFP) haven’t won at Kin­nick Sta­dium since 1999, los­ing nine straight on the road in the se­ries.

Min­nesota got to 23-19 with 3:27 to play when Rod­ney Smith scored on a 1-yard dive. But Brock Walker’s ex­tra-point at­tempt missed. Iowa’s Nate Wi­et­ing then re­cov­ered the on­side kick.

The Go­phers had a fi­nal chance. But quar­ter­back Tan­ner Mor­gan was sacked by Joe Evans and A.J. Epe­nesa on back-to-back plays, then backup Cole Kramer’s pass was in­ter­cepted by Ri­ley Moss on fourth down.

No. 9 Penn State 34, No. 24 In­di­ana 27

STATE COL­LEGE, Pa. — Quar­ter­back Sean Clif­ford scored three touch­downs Satur­day, lead­ing Penn State past In­di­ana.

Penn State (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten, No. 9 CFP) is at No. 2 Ohio State next week with the top spot in the Big Ten East on the line.

Clif­ford also com­pleted 11 of 23 passes for 179 yards and ran for 55 yards. Jour­ney Brown rushed 21 times for 100 yards and added a score. With Penn State ahead by a field goal with 10:45 to play, Clif­ford led an 18-play, 75yard drive that ate 9:01 and ended when he plunged in from a yard out to put the game out of reach.

No. 10 Ok­la­homa 34, No. 12 Bay­lor 31

WACO, Texas — Gabe Br­kic kicked a 31-yard field goal with 1:45 left af­ter Jalen Hurts threw four touch­down passes in a big come­back and Ok­la­homa kept its play­off hopes alive and ended No. 12 Bay­lor’s bid for an un­de­feated sea­son.

While the Soon­ers (9-1, 6-1 Big 12, No. 10 CFP) were with­out stand­out re­ceiver CeeDee Lamb, Hurts was 30-of-42 pass­ing for 297 yards with all of his TDs com­ing af­ter Bay­lor took a 28-3 lead early in the sec­ond quar­ter. The quar­ter­back, who had three turnovers, also ran for 114 yards.

No. 11 Florida 23, Mis­souri 6

CO­LUM­BIA, Mo. — Kyle Trask threw two touch­down passes af­ter a slug­gish first half for Florida.

Trask com­pleted 23 of 35 passes for 282 yards. That was plenty of of­fense for Florida (9-2, 6-2 South­east­ern Con­fer­ence), which held Mis­souri to 204 to­tal yards. Line­backer Jon Greenard had two sacks and five tack­les for loss.

No. 14 Michi­gan 44, Michi­gan State 10

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Shea Pat­ter­son threw for a sea­son-high 384 yards and four touch­downs and Michi­gan handed Michi­gan State its fifth straight loss.

No. 15 Wis­con­sin 37, Ne­braska 21

LIN­COLN, Neb. — Jonathan Tay­lor ran for 204 yards and two touch­downs, Aaron Cruick­shank re­turned a kick­off 89 yards for a score and Wis­con­sin beat Ne­braska.

No. 16 Notre Dame 52, No. 21 Navy 20

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Chase Clay­pool caught four touch­down passes to match a school record and No. 16 Notre Dame shut down Navy’s triple-op­tion.

No. 17 Cincin­nati 20, South Florida 17

TAMPA, Fla. — Sam Crosa kicked a 37-yarder field goal as time ex­pired to give Cincin­nati at least a share of the Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence East di­vi­sion ti­tle.

The Bearcats (8-1, 6-0, No. 17 CFP) ral­lied from a 10-point half­time deficit to win for the eighth straight time, get­ting touch­down runs from Michael War­ren and Ger­rid Doaks be­fore Des­mond Rid­der led an 11-play, 60-yard drive to win the game. USF’s Spencer Shrader missed a 33-yard field goal that would have given the Bulls (4-6, 2-4) the lead with 2:07 re­main­ing.

No. 18 Mem­phis 45, Hous­ton 27

HOUS­TON — Brady White threw for 341 yards and five touch­downs and ran for an­other score and Mem­phis over­came a 10-point first-quar­ter deficit to beat Hous­ton,
