  • TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Jameis Winston threw for 325 yards and No. 3 Florida State rolled to another romp, 41-14 over No. 7 Miami, in a battle of ACC unbeatens.
    Winston threw two interceptions in the first half after throwing four in the first seven games, but the Florida State defense shut out the Hurricanes (7-1, 3-1) in the second half after it was 21-14 at the break.
    The Seminoles (8-0, 6-0) went on a 20-0 run after a skirmish broke out midway through the third quarter. The two teams were called for offsetting personal fouls and James Wilder Jr. scored on a 5-yard run on the next play. The rout was on from that point, not much different from Florida State's 51-14 win at Clemson last month.
    Devonat Freeman ran for 81 yards and two touchdowns for Florida State against his hometown team.
    Miami's Duke Johnson posted 97 yards on 23 carries, before leaving with a leg injury.
    Winston threw one touchdown and Miami quarterback Stephen Morris threw for 192 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
    No. 4 Ohio State 56, Purdue 0
    At West Lafayette, Doran Grant picked off Purdue's first pass, returning it for a touchdown, and Braxton Miller threw for 233 yards and four touchdowns as Ohio State extended the nation's longest winning streak to 21.
    The Buckeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) have not lost in 22 months. Coach Urban Meyer also won his 22nd straight game, tying a personal best established at Florida. Ohio State scored the most points and produced the most lopsided scoring margin in the 56-game history of this series. Both topped the marks set in Ohio State's 49-0 victory in 2010.
    No. 8 Auburn 35, Arkansas 17
    At Fayetteville, Ark., Tre Mason rushed for 168 yards and four touchdowns as Auburn earned first-year coach Gus Malzahn a win in his return to Arkansas.
    No. 9 Clemson 59, Virginia 10
    At Charlottesville, Va., Tajh Boyd threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score and Clemson broke the game open with three touchdowns in the last 4:18 of the first half.
    No. 10 Missouri 31, Tennessee 3
    At Columbia, Mo., Maty Mauk threw three touchdown passes and ran for another, leading No. 10 Missouri's dominant and resilient effort in a 31-3 victory over Tennessee Saturday night.
    Tennessee (4-5, 1-4) is 0-4 on the road, all but one of them blowouts.
    No. 12 Texas A&M 57, UTEP 7
    At College Station, Texas, Johnny Manziel threw four touchdown passes and ran for two more scores in less than three quarters to lead Texas A&M.
    The Aggies trailed by five points early before scoring 55 straight to cruise to the victory against the overmatched Miners, losers of six straight.
    No. 14 South Carolina 34, Mississippi State 16
    At Columbia, S.C., Connor Shaw threw for four touchdowns, Mike Davis ran for 128 yards to move past 1,000 yards this season and South Carolina tied a school record with its 15th straight home victory.
    Shaw matched his personal best for TD throws after missing two days of practice with a virus. Davis, the SEC's leading rusher, had his seventh game reaching the century mark and became the team's first 1,000-yard rusher since Marcus Lattimore gained 1,197 yards his freshman season three years ago.
    No. 18 Oklahoma State 52,No. 15 Texas Tech 34
    At Lubbock, Texas, Clint Chelf threw for two touchdowns and a season-high 211 yards and ran for two more scores to lead Oklahoma State.
    Desmond Roland ran for three touchdowns, a week after getting four for Oklahoma State (7-1, 4-1).
    Chelf scored on a 67 yard quarterback draw, and was 18-for-34 passing with two interceptions.
    The win keeps Oklahoma State in the Big 12 title hunt and makes the road for Texas Tech (7-2, 4-2) more difficult. The Red Raiders have lost two straight.
    Cowboys returner Josh Stewart set up the last of Roland's touchdowns after returning a punt 46 yards in the third quarter.
    Davis Webb was 45 for 71 for 425 yards and a touchdown, with two interceptions, for Texas Tech. Jace Amaro finished with 174 yards and a touchdown on 15 catches for the Red Raiders.
    No. 21 Northern Illinois 63, Massachusetts 19
    At Foxborough, Mass., Jordan Lynch ran for 119 yards and four touchdowns and threw for another in just over a half to help Northern Illinois stay unbeaten.
    The Huskies (9-0, 5-0 Mid-American Conference) scored touchdowns on their first five possessions and six of their seven drives in the first half. Cameron Stingily rushed for 58 yards and a touchdown, and Tommylee Lewis also ran one in for Northern Illinois.
    Lynch, who leads all active FBS players in rushing yards, also completed 10 of 14 passes for 160 yards and threw for at least one touchdown for the 22nd consecutive game. He played one series in the third quarter.
    No. 22 Wisconsin 28, Iowa 9
    At Iowa City, Iowa, James White ran for 132 yards and a pair of late touchdowns as Wisconsin won its third straight.
    Joel Stave added two touchdown passes for the Badgers (6-2, 4-1 Big Ten), who are bowl eligible for the 12th year in a row.
    Wisconsin's Pat Muldoon intercepted Iowa backup C.J. Beathard at the Hawkeyes 25 with 7:43 left, setting up an 11-yard TD run by White.
    White added a 2-yard touchdown with 1:35 left for the Badgers, who won despite a season-low 62 yards rushing from Melvin Gordon.
    Hawkeyes quarterback Jake Rudock had 109 yards passing for the Hawkeyes (5-4, 2-3) before leaving the game in the third quarter with an apparent left leg injury.
    No. 24 Michigan State 29,No. 23 Michigan 6
    At East Lansing, Mich., Shilique Calhoun, Ed Davis and the rest of Michigan State's defense battered rival Michigan, and the Spartans remained unbeaten in the Big Ten.
    Michigan State (8-1, 5-0 Big Ten) has won five of the last six meetings with the Wolverines, and this was the Spartans' most lopsided win in the series since 1967. They held Michigan (6-2, 2-2) to minus-48 yards rushing, the worst output in the Ann Arbor program's history.
    Connor Cook threw for a touchdown and ran for one, but this game belonged to Michigan State's defense, which solidified its spot among the nation's best with an overwhelming performance on a rainy afternoon at Spartan Stadium.
    Calhoun and Davis each had 21/2; sacks.
