Here are the results of the noon and afternoon games here in Week 9; as more games go final they'll be added to the list. You can also check out the scoreboard for live results here, and click on final scores for full recaps where available.
No sweat for Alabama as the Crimson Tide handled Tennessee, 45-10. A pick-six at the end of the half by Landon Collins was the exclamation point on the game, and tailback T.J. Yeldon's three rushing touchdowns were all the offense Alabama needed.
Florida State honored Bobby Bowden Day by demolishing NC State; this game was over before the first quarter was through, as FSU took a 35-0 lead in the first frame. From there, it was basically academic. Jameis Winston looked like a Heisman contender yet again, and North Carolina State dropped to 0-4 in ACC play.
What looked like a nightmare in the making for Miami turned into a heroic afternoon for the Hurricanes, who scored two touchdowns in the last 5:36 of the game to pull out the win. Duke Johnson paced Miami with 30 rushes for 168 yards and those two scores, and a last gasp for the Demon Deacons was snuffed out when Tanner Price's throw went through his receiver's hands and into the arms of Miami CB Antonio Crawford. So it goes.
This game wasn't nearly as lopsided as the score would indicate, as Maryland was only down six points with possession early in the fourth quarter. Tajh Boyd threw for 304 yards in the win, and RB Roderick McDowell led Clemson's efforts pulling away by logging 161 yards and the Tigers' last two touchdowns of the game. Overall the game was sloppy, as the two teams combined for seven turnovers, but the toothless Terrapins just didn't have the firepower to contend late.
For the second straight year, Virginia Tech let Duke take a double-digit lead before the Hokies scored a point; this time, the Blue Devils hung on for the victory. Virginia Tech's true freshman CB Kendall Fuller registered three INTs on the day for the Hokies, but QB Logan Thomas threw four picks in the loss.
Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M blew the doors off the 'Dores, opening up a 28-0 lead in the first half. Manziel threw for 305 yards and four scores in a rather (by Manziel standards) subdued performance. Mike Evans caught five passes for 77 yards and a pair of scores, further cementing his status as the best wideout in college football this year.
Northern Illinois continued its quest for a perfect regular season by throttling visitor Eastern Michigan. QB Jordan Lynch logged 322 yards of total offense and five touchdowns, and the Huskies rolled up 658 yards altogether. All told, four NIU players threw touchdown passes in the win, which seems just a tad excessive.
Oklahoma State needed fewer than 10 minutes to go up 21-0 on the hapless Cyclones, and the Cowboys coasted to the easy win. RB Desmond Roland was the Cowboys' motor on the day, rushing for 219 yards and four scores, and OSU is now 6-1 (3-1) on the year and aiming straight for its trip to No. 10 Texas Tech next week.
It takes a pretty solid defense to slow down Teddy Bridgewater, and news flash: USF does not have a solid defense. Bridgewater went 25-29 for 344 yards and three scores in the easy win. USF fell to 2-5 (2-1) on the year, and yes, USF was actually 2-0 in AAC play coming into the game.
UCF had wins over Penn State and Louisville on its resume, and now the Knights have the ever-sexy blowout win to add to the pile. UConn is horrendous, no doubt, but now that we can see UCF is a team that lays waste to horrendous teams, it might be time to look at putting UCF into the Top 20. Blake Bortles paced the Knights with 286 yards passing and five total touchdowns.
The Big Ten Legends Division is officially a mess. Minnesota welcomed guest Nebraska to TCF Bank Stadium and pushed the Huskers up and down the field, earning bowl eligibility and—yes—a legitimate spot in the division race discussion, if only or a week. Nebraska was hampered significantly by Taylor Martinez's lingering turf toe injury, and while its star QB played, he was ineffective and Nebraska didn't have the type of performance from the rest of its team to make the difference.
