Florida State Vs. Florida Final Score: Seminoles Send Gators To 21-7 Defeat

The Florida St. Seminoles are now on a two-game winning streak against their rival Florida Gators following a 21-7 victory on Saturday night. The amazing thing about this victory for the Seminoles is that they had almost no offense throughout the entire game. In fact, Florida State had 92 total yards and 96 yards in penalties.

The Seminoles took advantage of Florida quarterback John Brantley's three interceptions by converting two of them into Devonta Freeman rushing touchdowns. Terrance Parks intercepted a pass by Jacoby Brissett, replacing an injured John Brantley, at Florida's 29-yard and returned it for a touchdown

Brissett, though, did throw a six-yard touchdown to Quinton Dunbar late in the game. Dunbar barely kept one foot in bounds before he fell down into the white. On the ensuing Florida State drive, the two school almost erupted into a brawl after a personal foul by Florida's Matt Elam led the Seminoles' Greg Reid to get up in his face. The Florida State coaches defused the situation before it got out of hand.

Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel finished the game with six completions on 13 attempts for 57 yards. His running backs picked up just 35 yards.

Egg Bowl 2011 Final Score: Mississippi State Dominates Ole Miss, 31-3, To Become Bowl Eligible

The 2011 Egg Bowl was an easy romp for the Mississippi St. Bulldogs, defeating the Ole Miss Rebels, 31-3, on Saturday night. The Golden Egg and bowl eligibility belong to the Bulldogs with the victory.

For the Bulldogs, this game was won through the ground. The team put 247 rushing yards into the stats column, led by Vick Ballard's 144 yards. Ballard found the endzone on a 25-yard run in the third quarter. LaDarius Perkins, though, found the endzone first when he had a 36-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Perkins had 64 yards on the ground.

Quarterback Chris Relf completed 8-of-13 passes for 70 yards and a two touchdowns. Ballard and Perkins had the touchdown catches. Relf had 49 yards on the ground to help the ground game.

Ole Miss kicked Bryson Rose connected on a 28-yard field goal in the third quarter to record the Rebels' only points of the game.

Air Force Vs. Colorado State Final Score: Falcons Reach Bowl Eligibility With 7th Victory

The Air Force Falcons reached bowl eligibility on Saturday by defeating the Colorado St. Rams, 45-21. Unlike most FBS teams, the Falcons needed to win seven games to be eligible since the team scheduled two FCS teams this season. They won both of those games, but only one counted in the bowl criteria.

The Falcons scored 31 points in the second quarter to take a commanding 31-7 lead into halftime. In somewhat uncharacteristic fashion, the Falcons had three passing touchdowns. Tim Jefferson found Zack Kauth for touchdown passes of 33, 40 and 50 yards. Backup quarterback Cody Getz scored a rushing touchdown and Parker Herrington kicked a field goal to complete the quarter's scoring.

Asher Clark and Wes Cobb led the Falcons' rushing attack with 111 and 83 yards, respectively, out of the team's 344 rushing yards. Not to be outdone, though, was Colorado State's Chris Nwoke. He had 29 carries for 269 yards and two touchdowns. His longest run of the game was a 62-yarder for a score.

While the Falcons wait to go bowling, Colorado State must now decide if head coach Steve Fairchild should retain his job.

Robert Griffin III Injury: Baylor Quarterback Out With Possible Head Injury

Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III finished out the first half, but appears to be done for the day after suffering an apparent head injury. Griffin III was hit hard and appeared to be dazed late in the second quarter, but it was only after halftime that the symptoms forced him from the game.

Griffin was seen on the sideline in a ballcap coming out of the half. His helmet was taken away, which would appear to be a sign of a head injury. Additionally, the Baylor coaching staff burned the redshirt of quarterback Nick Florence, which would also seem to be a sign Griffin III is done for the day.

Baylor holds a slim lead over Texas Tech, 31-28, but without Griffin III, all bets are off. We'll be back with more as it becomes available.

Purdue Vs. Indiana Final Score: Boilermakers Become Bowl-Eligible After Defeating Hoosiers, 33-25

The Purdue Boilermakers are bowl-eligible for the first time since the 2007 season after a 33-25 victory over the Indiana Hoosiers. The Boilermakers had to wait until the last game on its schedule to make this happen, but they had to work for it.

The Hoosiers had led, 17-10, midway through the second quarter before the Boilermakers started to pull away in the game. Kicker Carson Wiggs played an important role for Purdue by kicking four field goals, including a long of 48 yards. That one came with just five seconds left in the second quarter and gave Purdue the lead as they entered halftime.

After a scoreless third quarter, Wiggs hit on a 22-yard field goal with 13:13 left in the game and then saw his team score roughly two minutes later when Antavian Edison rushed for a five-yard touchdown. Indiana's D'Angelo Roberts countered with his own five-yard touchdown run a few minutes later. A successful two-point conversion brought the game to 33-25, but that was as close as Indiana could make it in the final minutes of the game.

Civil War 2011, Oregon Vs. Oregon State Final Score: Ducks Win; Book Ticket To Pac-12 Championship

Oregon is one step closer to the Rose Bowl after locking up a berth in the Pac-12 Championship with a convincing 49-21 win over rival Oregon State in the Civil War. But the win came at a price: running back LaMichael James left with his elbow wrapped in ice. Earlier this season, James went down with a dislocated right elbow, and appeared to be in serious pain after landing awkwardly again.

Besides the injury, it was another day at the office for the Ducks, who seemed to struggle early before hitting the gas and leaving Oregon State in the dust. A 21-point outburst in the second quarter, part of 35 unanswered points, was all Oregon needed to lock up the Pac-12 North title and a date with UCLA in the title game.

James finished his day with 141 yards and a touchdown on the ground, with De'Anthony Thomas adding 82 yards and Kenjon Barner rushing for 64 yards and a touchdown. Darron Thomas threw for 294 yards and four touchdowns in the win.

Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion threw for yards and three touchdowns, but was also intercepted two times. The Oregon State running backs combined for just 27 yards on the ground, factoring in sacks.

Vanderbilt Vs. Wake Forest: Commodores Bowl-Bound After Impressive Win

Usually, when Vanderbilt is involved in a 41-7 game, it's on the wrong side of the scoreboard. This year appears to be a different kind of season for the Commodores, who rolled up 481 yards of total offense and annihilated Wake Forest in Winston-Salem.

Vanderbilt's Jordan Rodgers -- yes, they're brothers -- was 7-of-15 for 139 yards and a touchdown on the game, and Larry Smith added a 45-yard touchdown throw on his only attempt for an absurd passer rating of 808.0. Rodgers also rushed for 90 yards on 16 carries, and star running back Zac Stacy had 184 yards and three touchdowns on 28 carries.

The win puts Vanderbilt in a bowl for the first time since the 2008 season. Wake Forest is also likely headed to the postseason with its .500 record.

Penn State Vs. Wisconsin Final Score: Badgers Headed To Big Ten Title Game

If you were looking for the team in Madison that will be headed to the Big Ten Championship Game, it was pretty easy to spot. Wisconsin scored 35 points in the second and third quarters combined and then coasted to an easy 45-7 win for the right to face Michigan State next week.

Montee Ball had a performance that drew comparisons to Barry Sanders, running for 156 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries. Russell Wilson was 18-of-28 for 185 yards and a pair of touchdowns; he also had 35 yards rushing on seven carries. The Badgers piled up 31 first downs and 448 yards in the rout.

The game also concludes one of the most tumultuous regular seasons in Penn State history, with Joe Paterno no longer on the sideline and much of the university leadership ousted after a scandal that begin in the football program. Fans now wait to see where the Nittany Lions will go in the postseason.

Tennessee Vs. Kentucky Final Score: How To Break A Streak With 16 Passing Yards

The perfect way to break a 26-game series winning streak by your biggest rival? Why, pass for 16 yards the entire game, of course.

That's how Kentucky finally took down the hated Volunteers in Lexington this afternoon, with the running game picking up 204 yards and the defense containing Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray, essentially shutting down Tennessee's one-dimensional offense.

Adding insult to injury was the passing performance, which owes a lot to the fact that senior wide receiver Matt Roark played quarterback for the Wildcats. Roark did have 124 yards on 24 carries to lead the team. CoShik Williams tacked on 70 yards and Kentucky's only touchdown on 22 carries to help carry Kentucky to the win.

Bray was 15-of-37 for 214 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. As usual, the Vols' running attack couldn't get much going on the ground, getting just 76 yards on 23 carries. The loss means Tennessee will not go to a bowl game this year.

Cincinnati Vs. Syracuse Final Score: Munchie Legaux Leads Bearcats To Big East Bedlam

The Cincinnati Bearcats have ensured that the Big East title won't be decided until the conclusion of next weekend's game following their victory over the Syracuse Orange on Saturday afternoon. The Bearcats only led 10-6 at halftime, but opened up the offense in the second half on the way to a 30-13 victory.

Backup quarterback Munchie Legaux, in for Zach Collaros after the starter suffered a broken ankle earlier in the season, threw for two touchdowns and 169 yards in the victory. Legaux's 69-yard strike to Isaiah Pead in the fourth quarter was the final nail in the coffin -- and Pead's second touchdown after 24-yard rushing touchdown earlier in the game.

Syracuse converted just four of its 15 third-down attempts, allowing the Bearcats to keep a stranglehold on the lead despite just one turnover in the game. Running back Antwon Bailey rushed for 135 yards on 27 attempts, but was unable to find his way into the end zone.

Georgia Vs. Georgia Tech Final Score: Bulldogs Continue Run Against Rivals

Georgia Tech has won one game against Georgia since the Jackets' victory in 2000, and this year probably was not the best time to try to break up the Bulldogs' run. Georgia came into this game having won nine straight games and an SEC East championship after starting out the year 0-2. Make it 10 in a row after the 31-17 defeat of Georgia Tech today.

The key for Georgia was a 17-point run that began late in the second quarter and continued through the third, putting the game out of reach. Aaron Murray showed off his All-SEC potential again, going 19-of-29 for 251 yards and four touchdowns against one interception. The Dogs' attrition-racked running game put together a pedestrian 129 yards on the day.

Georgia Tech's ground game was also bottled up on the day compared to the usual day. The Jackets ground out 243 yards rushing, and even their passing numbers were a touch shy of the season average for Paul Johnson's triple-option offense.

Georgia heads into the SEC Championship Game next week to play LSU, while Georgia Tech waits to hear about its bowl fate.
