Lock burns Florida again as Miz­zou wins

The Idaho Statesman (Sunday) - - SPORTS - As­so­ci­ated Press GAINESVILLE, FLA.

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 first-round draft pick again.

They might have seen the last of Feleipe Franks, too. Coach Dan Mullen benched Franks late in the third quar­ter, 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.

The Tigers (5-4, 1-4) re­sponded with a field goal that es­sen­tially sealed their first SEC win of the sea­son.

NO­TABLE

No. 2 Clem­son 77, Louisville 16: Travis Eti­enne ran for 153 yards and two touch­downs to help the host Tigers (6-0, ACC, No. 2 CFP) move to 9-0 for the third time in four years. The Tigers had five rush­ing touch­downs. Among those crack­ing the end zone were 350-pound de­fen­sive tackle Dex­ter Lawrence, who had a 2yard TD run as part of Clem­son’s “Fridge Pack­age.” Louisville is 2-7, 0-6. 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. The Wolver­ines moved a step closer to­ward their goals of win­ning a con­fer­ence cham­pi­onship for the first time since 2004 and earn­ing their first spot in the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off. The Nit­tany Lions (6-3, 3-3, No. 14 CFP) scored with 1:59 .

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 sec- ond straight SEC Eastern Divi­sion ti­tle. Ken­tucky (7-2, 5-2, No. 9 CFP) has never reached the SEC cham­pi­onship game.

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. Ne­braska (2-7, 1-5) fresh­man quar­ter­back Adrian Mar­tinez bested Hask­ins, who was in the Heisman Tro­phy con­ver­sa­tion a month ago. Mar­tinez threw for 266 yards and touch­down and rushed for two more.

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). Grier broke his fin­ger on a run to the py­lon in the first quar­ter of a loss to Texas last year, and his game-win­ning run came on a sim­i­lar scram­ble. Sam Eh­linger passed for 356 yards and three scores and also ran for a touch­down for Texas (6-3, 4-2, No. 17 CFP), which has lost two in a row.

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. The Utes (6-3, 4-3 Pac-12) lost quar­ter­back Tyler Hunt­ley to an ap­par­ent shoul­der or arm in­jury in the third quar­ter. Ari­zona State (5-4, 3-3), with con­sec­u­tive vic­to­ries over USC and Utah, is a halfgame out of first place. 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. David Blough threw three touch­down passes to

Terry Wright and topped the 300-yard mark for the fifth time this sea­son as the Boil­er­mak­ers (5-4, 4-2 Big Ten) moved within a game of the Big Ten West’s divi­sion lead. The Hawkeyes (6-3, 3-3) lost their sec­ond straight road game when their vaunted de­fense couldn’t come up with one fi­nal stop.
