Vols win on Hail Mary
Michigan scores late TD to beat Wisconsin, 14-7; UNC upsets Florida St.
Jauan Jennings caught a 43-yard Hail Mary pass from Joshua Dobbs on the final play, giving No. 11 Tennessee a 34-31 victory over No. 25 Georgia after the Bulldogs appeared to win the game on a touchdown pass with 10 seconds remaining Saturday.
The Volunteers (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) rallied from a double-digit deficit for the fourth time in five games, but this was their most improbable comeback. Tennessee went ahead for the first time by recovering a fumble by Georgia (3-2, 1-2) in the end zone with 2:56 to go.
Jacob Eason threw an interception with 2:10 left, but the host Bulldogs got the ball back and Eason threw a 47-yard touchdown pass to fellow freshman Riley Ridley. An excessive celebration penalty forced Georgia to kick off from its 20, and Evan Berry’s 20-yard return got the Vols in range for a last-gasp pass.
NO. 2 OHIO STATE 58, RUTGERS 0: J.T. Barrett broke the school record for career touchdown passes and the Buckeyes defense forced the Scarlet Knights (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten) to punt on each of their 10 drives in a rout.
Barrett threw four touchdowns passes for 59 in 27 career games for host Ohio State (4-0, 1-0).
NO. 4 MICHIGAN 14, NO. 8 WISCONSIN 7: Wilton Speight threw a tiebreaking 46-yard touchdown pass to Amara Darboh midway through the fourth quarter and Jourdan Lewis made a one-handed interception with 2:15 left as the host Wolverines (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) beat the Badgers (4-1, 1-1).
Wisconsin had the ball at its 8 with 2:59 and no timeouts left with a chance to beat a third team ranked in the top 10. But the Badgers didn’t advance on the first three plays, and Alex Hornibrook’s pass on fourthand-10 was picked off by Lewis.
NORTH CAROLINA 37, NO. 12 FLORIDA STATE 35: Nick Weiler made a 54-yard field goal as time expired to give the visiting Tar Heels (4-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) a win over the Seminoles (3-2, 0-2), ending Florida State’s 22-game home winning streak.
The Seminoles took a 35-34 lead with 22 seconds left on Deondre Francois’ 2-yard touchdown run.
