Missouri Upsets (13) South Carolina on the Road

Missouri Upsets (13) South Carolina on the Road Banana Stock/Getty Images(COLUMBIA, S.C.) -- One week after losing a game in the waning moments, the Missouri Tigers used a late drive to knock off No. 13 South Carolina on Saturday. The Tigers (4-1) trailed 20-7 in the fourth but scored twice in the final seven minutes to complete the upset. "When things got tough, we stayed positive. The defense kept us in it but we stayed totally positive with the offense the whole time," said head coach Gary Pinkel. After Russell Hansbrough scored in the first quarter to give Missouri a 7-0 lead, the Gamecocks (3-2) held their opponnent of the board until the fourth. Meanwhile, South Carolina reeled off 20 straight points to take a commanding lead late.  Pharoh Cooper caught a 23-yard pass from Dylan Thompson to give the Gamecocks a 13-point lead with 7:25 remaining. Just 36 seconds later, Maty Mauk and the Tigers completed their first scoring drive of the rally with a Hansbrough one-yard touchdown run. Missouri got the ball back and again watched as Hansbrough bullied his way into the endzone for the go-ahead score. The running back finished the game with three rushing touchdowns, carrying the ball just 10 times for 43 yards. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Top-Ranked Seminoles Survive in OT

Top-Ranked Seminoles Survive in OT Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) -- Without suspended quarterback Jameis Winston, the top-ranked Florida State Seminoles got some late-game heroics from backup Sean Maguire. The sophomore, making his first career start, led a game-tying drive in the fourth quarter before helping the Seminoles beat No. 22 Clemson, 23-17, in overtime. Karlos Williams rushed into the endzone from 12 yards out to cap off the comeback, but it was Maguire's 74-yard strike to Rashad Greene that tied the game at 17-17 with six minutes left in regulation. That touchdown was the high point in an up-and-down game for the sophomore signal caller. Maguire threw a pair of interceptions prior to the score, but did rack up 305 total passing yards. Neither team led by more than a touchdown, but the Tigers (1-2) did score 10 unanswered points in the first half to lead 10-3.  Florida State did get the ball back late in the fourth, but opted to play for overtime. The Seminoles defense stood tall, stopping Adam Choice on fourth down to give FSU possession. Two plays later, Williams would score to end the game.

The Tigers (3-1) scored 10 straight points in the second half, taking a 27-24 lead on Andrew Baggett's 40-yard field goal. However, the reigning Southeastern Conference West champions couldn't hold off the offense of the Hoosiers. Indiana went 75 yards in just six plays to pull off the upset. Tevin Coleman rushed for 132 total yards, including a 44-yard scamper that set up the winning score.  "It was a really big win," said Coleman, who missed the final 20 minutes of the first half with cramps.

Mississippi State Outlasts (8) LSU

Mississippi State Outlasts (8) LSU Football Texture/iStockphoto(BATON ROUGE, La.) -- Mississippi State jumped out to a 17-0 lead over eighth-ranked Louisiana State University (LSU), but had to hold on in the fourth quarter for a 34-29 win. It was the Bulldogs' first victory over LSU since 1999, and their first in Baton Rouge since 1991. "I probably aged seven to 10 years in the final three minutes of the game," said Mississippi State (4-0) head coach Dan Mullen. "We are trying to build a program and I'll take it. I guess everybody can now write now I have beaten LSU and Alabama once during my career." Quarterback Dak Prescott, a Louisiana native, controlled tempo through the first three quarters. His 56-yard touchdown run put the Bulldogs up 24-10, while his pass to Jameon Lewis made it a 21-point Bulldog lead. Trailing 31-10 heading into the fourth quarter, LSU (3-1) stormed back to score 19 unanswered points and threaten to deny the Bulldogs an upset. Brandon Harris found Malachi Dupre for a 31-yard touchdown pass that made it a 34-22 ballgame with less than two minutes remaining. The Tigers then recovered an onside kick, setting up another Harris-Dupre connection to close the gap to five. LSU got one last chance, holding possession in the final seconds. A last-ditch heave to the endzone was picked off by Will Redmond. Prescott finished the game with 268 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns, adding another score on the ground.

(11) Michigan State Dominates Eastern Michigan, 73-14 Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(EAST LANSING, Mich.) -- Coming off their first loss of the season last week, the 11th ranked Michigan State Spartans flexed their in-state muscles on Saturday after defeating Eastern Michigan 73-14. Michigan State did plenty of damage early as they scored four touchdowns in their first five possessions. Quarterback Connor Cook led the way as he completed five passes out of six attempts for 83 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for a touchdown in the first quarter. It was the third-most points the team has scored since 1931. "Obviously, everyone had a bad taste in their mouths coming back from Eugene," Cook said. "We wanted to take our anger out on the opponent, whether it was Eastern, Nebraska, Wyoming, whomever. We wanted to come out and make this a statement game and put up some points." The Spartans did plenty of damage on the ground too. Running back Delton Williams ran for 103 yards three touchdowns on just 10 carries while Jeremy Langford ran for 60 yards on nine carries while scoring a touchdown of his own.

Michel and McKenzie were both teammates together in high school at American Heritage High School in Plantation, Florida. "I'm happy for him and I'm happy for myself," said McKenzie, a wide receiver.

Jameis Winston’s Suspension Increased

Jameis Winston’s Suspension Increased Grant Halverson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Citing new findings in their investigation to his sexual and profane outburst at a student union meeting, Florida State announced late Friday they were suspending quarterback Jameis Winston for the full game against No. 22 Clemson on Saturday. Winston had originally been suspended for only the first half. "Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday's incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night," interim Florida State president Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox said in a joint statement. Winston, the reigning Heisman trophy winner, was seen shouting an obscene sexual phrase on campus earlier in the week.

Hundley Goes Down But Neuheisal Steps Up to Lead (12) UCLA to Win

Hundley Goes Down But Neuheisal Steps Up to Lead (12) UCLA to Win Football Texture/iStock Photo(ARLINGTON, Texas) --When star quarterback Brett Hundley left the game in the first quarter with a injured left elbow it was easy to think UCLA was in trouble. But backup Jerry Neuheisal put all doubts to rest by completing 23 of 30 passes for 178 yards and two touchdowns, including the eventual game-winner with three minutes to play, as the No. 12 Bruins nip Texas 20-17 Saturday. With UCLA down by four with just over three minutes to play, Neuheisal, who is the son of former UCLA coach Rick Neuheisal, completed a 33-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Payton to seal the win. "My first thought was excitement for Jerry Neuheisel. This kid is everything that's right about college football and about UCLA," UCLA head coach Jim Mora said. "I just thought, `Wow. You couldn't write a better script than this right here. His dad was a great player here. For him to come to Texas and bringing his team from behind to get a win. It's incredible. It's awesome." Tyrone Swoopes completed 24 of 34 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns for Texas (1-2). Paul Perkins rushed for 126 yards to help UCLA improve to 3-0 as it heads into conference play.

(4) Oklahoma’s Defense Dominates in 34-10 Throttling of Tennessee JP Wilson/Replay Photos via Getty Images (NORMAN, Okla.) -- Oklahoma's defense created three turnovers and held Tennessee to 313 total yards to lead the No. 11 Sooners past the Volunteers 34-10 Saturday night. Oklahoma is now 3-0 as it heads into Big 12 play. "I don't feel that we've done much yet," Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said. "I've got all the respect in the world for Tennessee. I'm just saying it's only three games. We've got a long year. We've got to keep getting better." Oklahoma jumped out to an early 13-0 lead before Tennessee scored on a Justin Worley 40-yard touchdown pass to Josh Smith. But Keith Ford ran in an 11-yard touchdown at the end of the second quarter to give the Sooners a 20-7 lead at halftime. Cornerback Julian Wilson essentially sealed the game for Oklahoma in the fourth quarter when he intercepted a Worley pass and returned it 100 yards for a touchdown. Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight accounted for two touchdowns, one rushing and one passing, while completing 20 of 33 passes for 308 yards. Worley completed 21 of 40 passes for 201 yards, but threw two interceptions and fumbled once for Tennessee (2-1) in the loss. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Golson Accounts for 3 TDs as (11) Notre Dame Thumps Purdue Joel Auerbach/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Everett Golson threw two touchdowns and ran for another to lead (11) Notre Dame past Purdue 30-14 Saturday.The 6-foot-1, 200 pound senior quarterback accounted for at least three touchdowns for the third-straight game, and scored on a 15-yard dash at the end of the second quarter to erase the Fighting Irish's first deficit of the season, and give them the lead heading into halftime. "He just understands the game," Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly said of Golson. "The game is slower for him than it was when he was here in his first year. The game has slowed down. He sees the field better. He can see it better. He's not there yet. We missed some things tonight that would have changed the complexion of the game." Notre Dame (3-0) would outscore Purdue (1-2) 13-0 in the second half, giving the Irish its seventh-straight victory over the Boilermakers. The two teams, which have played each other every year since 1946, will now take a five year break before resuming their rivalry in 2020. The Fighting Irish have won their first three games of the season for the second time in three years -- they last did that in 1987 when they did it in four-straight seasons.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Boston College Knocks Off (9) USC

Boston College Knocks Off (9) USC Football Texture/iStockphoto(CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.) -- An emotional night for Boston College ended with a historic upset over No. 9 USC on Saturday night. The Eagles honored former lacrosse player Welles Crowther, who passed away in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, by wearing red bandanas and toppling the Trojans, 37-31, at home. "The red bandanna game meant a lot. We talked a lot about Welles Crowther; we talked a lot about who he was and what it takes to be a BC man," said head coach Steve Addazio. "Our guys dug deep on this. This was a great win." The Trojans (2-1) jumped out to a 10-0 lead after one quarter and eventually led 17-6 just one minute into the second.

With the win, the Pirates snapped a five-game losing streak to ranked opponents. It was their first victory over a ranked team since 2009 when they beat then-No. 18 Houston.

Carden's 427 passing yards were the third-most ever allowed by Virginia Tech in a single game. The biggest play of the game happened with just 16 seconds left in the contest when Carden ran in the game-winning touchdown on the one-yard line to seal with win. East Carolina wide receiver also had a big game. He finished the day with six catches for 224 yards. Oddly enough, he didn't catch a touchdown pass in the game.

NCAA Lifts Penn State’s Bowl Ban, Scholarship Reduction

NCAA Lifts Penn State’s Bowl Ban, Scholarship Reduction Justin K. Allen/Getty Images(STATE COLLEGE, Pa.) -- The NCAA has announced that Penn State University will be eligible for postseason play this season, and all of their scholarships will be returned next season. This is the second time sanctions have been reduced towards the university in regard to the Jerry Sandusky scandal. "Penn State has made remarkable progress over the past year," said South Carolina president Harris Pastides, a member of the NCAA's board of directors. "The board members and I believe the executive committee's decision is the right one. It allows both the university and the association to continue to move toward a common goal of ensuring that educating, nurturing and protecting young people is a top priority." Prior to the announcement, Penn State would have had 80 scholarships in 2015, and a full 85 in 2016. They also would not have been able to be eligible for postseason play until 2016. "This is deserved because those penalties were never deserved," said Jay Paterno, former Penn State assistant and son of the late Joe Paterno. "I am happy for the university and the team. This is a great thing for the university and the football program but there is still a lot to be done and a lot to be corrected. I think the NCAA saying this relief is because of the Mitchell report process is a cover for the fact that there was a faulty Freeh report." In July 2012, Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of sexual abuse of 10 boys. He is serving a 30- to 60-year prison sentence. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio 

Louisville Dominant in Petrino’s Return

Louisville Dominant in Petrino’s Return iStockphoto(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) -- The Louisville Cardinals (1-0) defense held Miami to 1-for-13 on three downs, helping lead the team to a 31-13 win over the Hurricanes on Monday in their season opener. It was also the first victory for head coach Bobby Petrino in his return to Louisville. "I thought it would be a real battle and we would have to work extremely hard," said Petrino. "Obviously, we made some mistakes on offense and on special teams. I thought the defense really did a great job all night long, especially on third down." The Cardinals opened the scoring in the first quarter when Will Gardner hit Charles Standberry on a two yard touchdown pass. The Hurricanes countered with 10 straight points before Louisville regained the lead just prior to halftime when Corvin Lamb went 97 yards on a kickoff return. Coming out of the locker room it was all Louisville as they scored 17 straight points after Miami closed the gap to 14-13 just four minutes into the third. The game also saw a pair of quarterbacks making their first career starts. Gardner was 20-for-28 passing for 206 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Freshman Brad Kaaya did not fare as well for Miami (0-1), tossing a pair of interceptions and going just 17-for-29 in his debut. "We did not do a good enough job protecting a first-start quarterback. Period," said Hurricanes coach Al Golden. Louisville opened their tenure in the Atlantic Coast Conference, dominating a mainstay program in the ACC. Petrino led the Cardinals to a 41-9 record from 2003-06 as head coach.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

(13) Tigers Rally to Beat (14) Wisconsin ThinkStock(HOUSTON, Texas) -- Wisconsin held a 24-7 lead over No. 13 Louisiana State University (LSU) just two and a half minutes into the third quarter. When the final whistle blew, the 14th-ranked Badgers found themselves on the wrong end of a 28-24 comeback win by the Tigers who scored 21 straight points. "We played sloppy, we did everything to the latest possible time before we decided to play best," LSU coach Les Miles said. Corey Clement's two-yard touchdown run in the third made it a 24-7 Wisconsin lead before LSU turned it around. A pair of Colby Delahoussaye field goals cut the deficit to 11 at the end of three quarters but the Tigers still struggled to find the end zone. They finally broke through three minutes into the fourth as Anthony Jennings found John Diarse for a 36-yard strike. Jennings then connected with Trey Quinn for a two-point conversion that made it a 24-21 Wisconsin lead. LSU's Jalen Mills then picked off a pass from Tanner McEvoy on the ensuing possession. Three plays later, Kenny Hilliard busted through the line for a 28-yard touchdown run to complete the comeback. Another interception by McEvoy sealed the deal for the Badgers who gained just 65 yards in the fourth quarter. "They battled. They hung in there," Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen said.

(1) Florida State Survives Scare From Oklahoma State Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- The defending national champions got their first scare of the year in their season opener, holding off Oklahoma State 37-31 on Saturday. The Florida State Seminoles (1-0) had led 17-0 in the second half but the Cowboys (0-1) closed the gap to 27-24 late and had a chance to take the lead. "We all preached it, but I do think they felt the pressure of being No. 1. I do," Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. "Now I think we can relax and go play football." Sophomore quarterback Jameis Winston threw for 370 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for one as well. The reigning Heisman trophy winner also threw a pair of interceptions that helped keep Oklahoma State hanging around.  The Cowboys J.W.

However, Walsh fumbled when he was flipped into the air by Florida State's P.J. Williams.

Michigan State Cruises to Season Opening Win

Michigan State Cruises to Season Opening Win Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(EAST LANSING, Mich.) -- A 64-yard touchdown pass from Connor Cook to Tony Lippett opened the scoring for Michigan State football in 2014. It also started a brief injury scare as Cook needed to be helped off the field following a hit to his leg. That scare did not last long as Cook returned to throw three touchdowns in helping the eighth-ranked Michigan State Spartans to a 45-7 win over Jacksonville State. The junior completed his first nine passes of the game and finished the day going 12-for-13 for 285 yards before sitting out the second half. The defending Big Ten Champions led 38-0 at halftime before resting the majority of their starters. The Gamecocks, considered a top team in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), didn't get on the board until the Max Shortell found Markis Merrill for a nine-yard strike. "I was proud of our kids on how we finished the game," said Jacksonville State head coach John Grass. "We dug a hole early, and you can't do that against a team like Michigan State. They've got a team that's going to make a run at a national championship. I really believe that." The Spartans will have a much tougher task next week when they take on the No. 3 Oregon Ducks.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
