Week 14 college football final scores: OH MY GOD THE IRON BOWL

No. 4 Auburn 34, No. 1 Alabama 28. No. 3 Ohio State 42, Michigan 41. Everything else is window dressing.

Kevin C. Cox

We officially have chaos on the BCS as Auburn stunned Alabama on the final play of the game and won 34-28. Also, Ohio State staved off a Michigan upset attempt by picking off a 2-point conversion in the last minute, and does that play ever loom larger now.

Here are your final scores from all around the country on what was a wild Rivalry Week of college football.

No. 4 Auburn 34, No. 1 Alabama 28 | Full Recap

In case you don't already know, just know this: It was one of the best games of the year before the final play, which was one of the most amazing plays in college football history. Alabama was kicking for the win after having one second put on the clock. Then this happened.


Bedlam. Chaos. Pandemonium. Football has just been broken in half. War Damn Eagle.

No. 2 Florida State 37, Florida 7 | Full Recap

Florida State completely outclassed Florida in this one, with the Seminoles racking up 456 yards in a yawner. Jameis Winston threw for 327 yards and three scores in the win, which puts FSU in the ACC Championship (against Duke, spoiler alert) with a spot in the BCS Championship on the line.

No. 3 Ohio State 42, Michigan 41 | Full Recap

In the wildest game of the week and one of the wildest of the year, Ohio State needed DB Tyvis Powell to intercept a two-point conversion with 32 seconds left to preserve the win and its undefeated record. The Buckeyes rushed for 393 yards and four touchdowns on the day, and Michigan QB Devin Gardner threw for 451 yards and four touchdowns in a heroic losing effort.

No. 5 Missouri 28, No. 21 Texas A&M 21 | Full Recap

Texas A&M was the last thing standing between Missouri and a date in the SEC Championship Game with Alabama Auburn, but they too, fell to the Tigers, 28-21. Nothing flashy by Missouri, really. Just strong, well-executed defense, holding Johnny Manziel to under 200 yards passing, and some efficient play of their own were enough for the win. Henry Josey's touchdown run with 3:34 to play sealed the deal.


No. 8 Stanford 27, No. 25 Notre Dame 20 | Full Recap

The real test for Stanford awaits next week against Arizona State, but the Cardinal were still able to take care of business against Tommy Rees and the Trojans, picking him off twice in the final ten minutes to snag the victory. Running back Tyler Gaffney powered the Cardinal offense, as he usually does, rushing for a career high 189 yards on 33 carries.

No. 9 Baylor 41, TCU 38 | Full Recap

Baylor needed an interception late to thwart TCU's upset bid and keep its at-large BCS dreams alive. The game-clinching play by Terrell Burt came after the Bears took two picks to the house off Casey Pachall and set up a touchdown with a fumble recovery deep in TCU territory. It wasn't pretty, but Baylor's had enough of pretty anyway.

No. 10 South Carolina 31, No. 6 Clemson 17 | Full Recap

The Gamecocks made it five straight over Clemson with their 31-17 victory, the longest in school history. Still, it wasn't easy to keep the streak alive -- the two teams were actually tied 17-17 going into the fourth quarter. South Carolina only pulled away late after a Mike Davis two yard touchdown run, and then this pass out of the Wildcat formation by Pharoh Cooper.


No. 11 Michigan State 14, Minnesota 3 | Full Recap

Michigan State became the first Big Ten team since the expansion of 1953 (when, appropriately, Michigan State was added) to win every single conference game by double digits by dispatching Minnesota, 14-3. The Spartans' defense was as stout as ever, and Jeremy Langford was a punisher on the ground once again with 134 yards and a score. MSU will now bring its top-ranked rush defense to Indianapolis to face Ohio State next week, and this one will be an all-out war in the trenches.

No. 12 Arizona State 58, Arizona 21 | Full Recap

They'll host Stanford next weekend for the right to go to the Rose Bowl, but it's hard to imagine that the Sun Devils could play any better than they did on Saturday. ASU forced three turnovers, held B.J. Denker and Ka'Deem Carey largely in check, and then proceeded to score again and again on offense. All in all, it was a very impressive performance on behalf of the Sun Devils, who will be very, very motivated for their rematch with the Cardinal.

No. 13 Oregon 36, Oregon State 35 (Fri.) | Full Recap

College football's Civil War was a wild one on Friday night, as Oregon needed a last-minute touchdown throw from Marcus Mariota to Josh Huff to pick up the victory against the surprisingly feisty Oregon State Beavers. Oregon State scored on a 25-yard jet sweep by Victor Bolden with under two minutes left to take a 35-30 lead, but a missed two-point conversion left the door open just enough for the Ducks to prevail.

No. 14 Northern Illinois 33, Western Michigan 14 (Tues.) | Full Recap

Jordan Lynch ran for a QB-record 321 yards (besting his own record of 316 yards against CMU earlier this year) and four scores as the Huskies coasted to victory on their last stop before the MAC Championship against Bowling Green. A win there will likely put NIU in a BCS bowl for the second straight season, which is a frankly incredible thing to type about a MAC team.

Penn State 31, No. 15 Wisconsin 24 | Full Recap

The 25-point favorite Badgers were stunned at Camp Randall by a surprisingly feisty Penn State team who took a 31-14 lead in the fourth quarter then hung on for dear life. Penn State finished the season at 7-5, while Wisconsin's BCS at-large hopes are now dashed. Hey, Tampa's nice this time of year. Maybe Orlando if Michigan State cooperates.

San Jose State 62, No. 16 Fresno State 52 (Fri.) | Full recap

How crazy of a game was this? The first half alone featured 83 points. The Bulldogs and Spartans combined for 12 passing touchdowns. After taking a 42-41 lead into halftime, San Jose State pulled away on the arm of senior quarterback David Fales. His 547 yards passing topped the 519 of David Carr. Carr's interception with just under 12 minutes remaining sealed the fate of his Bulldogs for their first loss of the season. Fresno State is now effectively out of BCS bowl contention.

No. 17 LSU 31, Arkansas 27 (Fri.) | Full Recap

After Zach Mettenberger went down with a leg injury in the fourth quarter, freshman quarterback Anthony Jennings was tasked with leading the Tigers over the Razorbacks. He drove 99 yards in eight plays to put his team up by four. Mettenberger went 14/22 for 156 yards and an interception before his injury.

No. 20 UCF 23, USF 20 (Fri.) | Full Recap

UCF QB Blake Bortles led the Knights on a fourth quarter comeback drive to take the lead on upstart USF, and an interception by Jordan Ozerities in the dying minutes sealed UCF's win—and its American Athletic Conference championship.

No. 22 UCLA 35, No. 23 USC 14 | Full Recap

The Bruins have been making a habit of using defensive players on offense in recent weeks, and for their game against USC, that habit would indeed continue, as Myles Jack and Eddie Vanderdoes, both primarily defenders, saw the end zone against the Trojans. Throw in two runs by Brett Hundley and another by Paul Perkins and it proved too much for an anemic USC offense to handle.

No. 24 Duke 27, North Carolina 25 | Full Recap

Duke punched its ticket to the ACC Championship Game by holding off UNC. In football. We have proof:


Other Scores

Texas 41, Texas Tech 16 (Thurs.) | Full Recap

The Texas Longhorns reminded Texas Tech and the rest of the Big 12 where the power still stands in the conference by throttling the reeling Red Raiders on Thanksgiving. The Longhorn ground game was too much for Tech's still-green defensive front, and this one was academic by early in the third quarter.

Mississippi State 17, Ole Miss 10 (OT) (Thurs.) | Full Recap

Mississippi State took home the Egg Bowl and clinched bowl eligibility with a stunner in Starkville, taking out the favored Rebels 17-10 in overtime. Ole Miss QB Bo Wallace appeared to be en route to scoring to tie the game in OT, but he was stripped near the goal line and the ball was recovered with ease by Jamerson Love (it was headed out of the end zone anyway), and that was that.

Iowa 38, Nebraska 17 (Fri.) | Full Recap

The Cornhuskers ended up outgaining the Hawkeyes, but mistakes proved costly and Iowa prevailed on the road. It is the first time since 1943 that Iowa's won in Lincoln. Nebraska quarterback Ron Kellogg III struggled under duress and threw a pair of interceptions. Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini may have sealed his fate in the loss, not only by getting dumptrucked by unranked Iowa but with questionable behavior on the sideline, at the halftime interview and in the post-game news conference.

Washington 27, Washington State 17 (Fri.) | Full Recap

Bishop Sankey tallied 200 yards on 34 carries to bring the Apple Cup home for the Huskies. Wazzu QB Connor Halliday had another arm-exhausting game, going 32/59 for 282 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. It was the final home game of Huskies QB Keith Price's career, and he finished 15/20 for 181 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Miami 41, Pittsburgh 31 (Fri.) | Full Recap

Stacy Coley caught three passes, two for touchdowns, and took an end around 73 yards for a touchdown in Miami's victory. Allen Hurns caught nine passes for 173 yards from Stephen Morris, who threw for 296 yards on the day.

Kansas State 31, Kansas 10 | Full Recap

Just about the only adversity KSU faced in this one was a 1st and 42 (NOTE: KSU did not convert the first down at all). KSU was up 21-0 just 15:10 into the game, and it was never close thereafter. It's a strong finish for KSU, who moves to 7-5 (5-4) on the year.

Georgia 41, Georgia Tech 34 (2 OT) | Full Recap

Georgia overcame a 20-0 deficit and roared back to finish the regular season with a win in double overtime. Georgia RB Todd Gurley took over after halftime, finishing with 158 total yards from scrimmage and four total touchdowns, including both of the Bulldogs' scores in overtime.
