’Bama rallies to slip by LSU

(Continued)

BATON ROUGE, La. —

Notre Dame (9-0) won despite Ray Graham rushing for 172 yards for Pitt (4-5), which missed a potential game-winning field goal in overtime.

Golson threw an 11-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth. Notre Dame’s chances for a comeback appeared to end when Pitt’s K’Waun Williams intercepted Golson in the end zone.

But the Irish defense held and Golson completed a 45-yard pass to DaVaris Daniels at the Pitt 5. Golson then threw a 5-yard TD pass and ran in the two-point conversion to tie the game.

No. 6 Ohio St. 52, Illinois 22

Carlos Hyde rushed for 137 yards and three touchdowns, and Braxton Miller passed for two scores and ran for another to lead Ohio State past Illinois.

Miller, considered a Heisman Trophy hopeful, had 18 carries for 73 yards and completed 12 of 20 passes for 226 yards.

It was the sixth straight loss for Illinois (2-7, 0-5).

No. 7 Georgia 27, Mississippi 10

Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes and Georgia overcame a slow start to beat Mississippi and move one win away from a spot in the SEC championship game.

Georgia (8-1, 6-1) trailed 10-0 before scoring 37 unanswered points. The Bulldogs can clinch the SEC East title and second straight trip to the conference championship game with a win at Auburn next week.

No. 8 Florida 14, Missouri 7

Mike Gillislee took a screen pass and went 45 yards for a touchdown, and Florida survived a scare to beat Southeastern Conference newcomer Missouri.

The Gators kept alive their hopes of winning the SEC’s Eastern Division.

Florida (8-1, 7-1) was shut out in the first half, managing just 111 yards and failing to contain Missouri quarterback James Franklin.

No. 10 Clemson 56, Duke 20

Tajh Boyd threw for 344 yards and tied a school record with five touchdown passes for the second straight week for Clemson.

DeAndre Hopkins caught three of those TD tosses in the opening quarter for the Tigers (8-1, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).
