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.

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.

Indiana Knocks Off (18) Missouri


ThinkStock(COLUMBIA, Mo.) -- D'Angelo Roberts' three-yard touchdown run with 22 seconds remaining put Indiana ahead 31-27, giving the Hoosiers (2-1) a win over 18th-ranked Missouri on Saturday. It was just the fourth win over an AP-ranked non-conference team in program history.

The back-and-forth affair so neither team hold more than a one-score advantage. 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 setup the winning score. 

"It was a really big win," said Coleman, who missed the final 20 minutes of the first half with cramps. "We came out here with fire. We played until the end."

Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk tossed for 326 yards and two scores to pace the Tigers while Russell Hansbrough ran for 119 yards.

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 of 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 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.

(13) Georgia Shuts Out Troy, 66-0


BannanaStock(ATHENS, Ga.) -- The 13th ranked Georgia Bulldogs came to play on Saturday afternoon as they defeated Troy 66-0 to improve to 2-1 on the season.

It was the most points the team has scored in a game in 20 years.

Leading the way for Georgia was freshman running back Sony Michel who ran for 155 yards on just 10 carries while also scoring three touchdowns.

Freshman Isaiah McKenzie also had a big game as he returned a punt back for a touchdown.

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.

"We just came up here to do what we'd been doing. He's been helping me out and I've been helping him out."

Junior running back Todd Gurley also had a big game despite limited action on the field. He ran for 73 yards on just six carries.

"To know one of those two guys is going to get the ball is a smart thing," Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. "They're both very talented kids."

Troy feel to 0-4 on the season.

Tom Brady Expecting a Tough Game Against Raiders


Jim Rogash/Getty Images(FOXBORO) -- The New England Patriots (1-1) will host the Oakland Raiders (0-2) on Sunday and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady isn't looking past their poor start to the season. 

The Raiders have struggled on the East Coast, but Brady still is aware of what their defense will bring to the table with the team hungry for a win.

"I think we’re going to get their best shot. It’s a very good defense," Brady said. "They’re hungry for the ball. They’re always trying to strip at it. They’ve got some playmakers in the secondary – very experienced secondary. [They have] a really good front, active front that gets into the pocket. So, we’ve got to do a good job all around. It’s got to be a great execution."

Brady understands that the Raiders have a lot of veteran players scattered throughout the defense.

"They’ve got great coverage guys – one of the most experienced secondaries in the league with Tarell Brown, [Chimdi] Chekwa, Carlos Rogers as the three primary [defensive backs] and then Charles Woodson and [Tyvon] Branch as the safeties," Brady said. "Those guys have a lot of experience. Teams have done a good job running the ball against their defense, but we’re going to need to do both. We’ve got to be able to stay balanced. "

Brad Keselowski Wins Pole at New Hampshire


Streeter Lecka/Getty Images For NASCAR(LOUDON, N.H.) -- Brad Keselowski took home the pole on Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and will start up front after winning last weekend at Chicagoland.

Keselowski set a track-record lap of 140.598 mph and is hoping to win the second race in the first round, even though he's already advanced.

"This kind of track is kind of right in my wheelhouse, right in our team's wheelhouse," Keselowski said. "We had this race circled before the Chase started and we felt decent about Chicago, but really felt like this was a race of emphasis for us to get a win and get out of the first bracket."

Keselowski swept the Cup and Nationwide races at Loudon in July.

"It's positive momentum," he said, "but when it resets it resets and nothing that you've done in the past really matters as long as you're eligible for the bracket. I'm a long, long ways from using the word favorite or feeling overly confident."

Jamie McMurray, who is a non-chase driver finished second and was followed by Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, and Jimmie Johnson.

Cardinals Place LB Abraham on Season-Ending Reserve


Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Arizona Cardinals placed outside linebacker John Abraham on season-ending injured reserve because of a concussion on Friday.

Abraham suffered a concussion in week 1 against the San Diego Chargers and left the team for a week.

Abraham was entered into the NFL's concussion protocol due to league rules with any concussion related injury, but was unable to pass the final stages of the test on Tuesday.

Following another unsuccessful attempt on Thursday, the team placed him on injured reserve after doctors decided it would be best for him to not play for a year.

"We're going to miss his leadership," Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said. "He was like an extra coach. He had so much knowledge, and he shared it with all the young guys every single day not just outside 'backers. Everybody. And was fun-loving, and I'll miss him in the locker room."

Abraham is the NFL's active leader in sacks with 133.5.

Wanderlei Silva Retires from MMA


Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Veteran mixed martial artist Wanderlei Silva retired abruptly on Friday, announcing his decision in a surprise 13-minute YouTube video. Silva cited "disillusionment" with the UFC, his current employer, as the main reason for his decision to walk away from the sport.

The 38-year-old claimed that the UFC repeatedly attempted to get him to fight when he was not healthy and accused the sports top promotion of paying their athletes with "crumbs." Silva was supposed to fight Chael Sonnen, his opposing coach on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil in May before the bout was rescheduled July. 

"They told me I had to fight on that date and offered me a bunch of money," Silva said. "I asked myself, 'If they have the money, why didn't they offer it to me before?' They always hold on to the money so they underpay athletes."

Silva (35-12-1) made his professional debut in 1996 and eventually won the Pride middleweight championship. The Brazilian has fought exclusively for the UFC since 2007. Currently, he is involved in an issue with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) regarding Silva's dodging of a random drug test.
