OXFORD, Miss. — Andrew Ritter made a 41-yard field goal with 2 seconds remaining to lead Mississippi past LSU 27-14.
Ole Miss (4-3, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) led by as many as 17 points and was ahead nearly the entire game until late in the fourth quarter when LSU’s Zach Mettenberger hit Jarvis Landry for a 4-yard touchdown to tie it at 24 with 3:19 remaining.
But the Rebels responded with a methodical drive that ended in Ritter’s field goal.
Bo Wallace completed 30 of 39 passes for 346 yards and Jaylen Walton rushed for 105 yards and two touchdowns for the Rebels, who snapped a three-game losing streak.
LSU (6-2, 3-2) nearly pulled off the comeback, but couldn’t overcome a rough game by Mettenberger, who threw three crucial interceptions.
No. 1 Alabama 52, Arkansas 0: AJ McCarron threw three touchdown passes and Kenyan Drake rushed for 104 yards and two scores to lead Alabama.
The Crimson Tide (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) rolled to a 28-0 halftime lead and easily avoided catching the upset bug that struck other SEC powers. Alabama has won by the same margin over Arkansas two years running.
No. 4 Ohio State 34, Iowa 24: Carlos Hyde ran for 149 yards, including 106 yards and two touchdowns in the second half, to lead Ohio State to a victory over Iowa.
It was the Buckeyes’ 19th consecutive victory, the most in the nation and tying the second-best streak in school history.
But it didn’t come easy. The Hawkeyes (4-3, 1-2 Big Ten) dominated offensively in the first half and led 21-14 at the break behind the passing of Jake Rudock and running of Mark Weisman and Damon Bullock.
No. 5 Florida State 51, No. 3 Clemson 14: Jameis Winston threw for 444 yards and three touchdowns and No. 5 Florida State crushed No. 3 Clemson Saturday night, making statement that should be heard from Alabama to Oregon.
Winston was 22 for 34 for Florida State (6-0, 4-0 ACC). His first throw was a 22-yard touchdown to Kelvin Benjamin, and he scrambled for a 4-yard touchdown that made it 41-7 with 4:04 left in the third quarter.
