Miami 25, Virginia Tech 24
The no. 9 Hurricanes kept their ACC title hopes alive with a comeback win in Blacksburg. The Hokies opened up a 24-13 lead midway through the third quarter. But D’Eriq King was able to engineer two touchdown drives of 75 yards or longer late in the game while the Miami defense clamped down on Hendon Hooker and the Virginia Tech offense. King didn’t do much damage as a runner, but he did run the ball into the end zone from 10 yards out in the second quarter. He also completed 24 of his 38 passes for 255 yards and the game-winning touchdown pass. With the win, Miami is 7-1 overall and 6-1 inside the ACC. With a loss to Clemson and no head-to-head meeting with Notre Dame, the Hurricanes need to win their three remaining games and hope for a little help if they want to reach the ACC Championship Game.

West Virginia 24, TCU 6
Week after week, the West Virginia defense looks more and more like the real deal. The Mountaineers gave up less than 300 total yards and just six total points against TCU, keeping quarterback Max Duggan under wraps all game. Meanwhile, the West Virginia offense dominated the time of possession and methodically moved the ball against the TCU defense. Jarret Doege completed 19 of his 26 passes with two passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown. The Mountaineers also got 156 rushing yards from running back Leddie Brown on 24 carries. It’s likely a little late for West Virginia to win the Big 12. But with games against Oklahoma and Iowa State, the Mountaineers will have a say in what teams end up in the conference championship game.

USC 34, Arizona 30
For the second straight week, the Trojans pulled out a close game in the final minute. The Trojans went ahead 27-23 with 3:30 left in the game. But Arizona struck back quickly to take a 30-27 lead with 1:35 to play. Alas, Kedon Slovis took the Trojans down the field quickly with Vavae Malepeai running the ball in from eight yards out for the game-winning score. At times, it was a struggle for Slovis, but he ultimately finished the game with 325 passing yards while Markese Stepp and Stephen Carr both had 80 or more rushing yards to give the USC offense a little more balance. In fairness, Arizona played a good game in their season opener, especially quarterback Grant Gunnell. After a pair of close wins, the Trojans face what is likely their biggest test of the season, a road game against Utah next week.

Northwestern 27, Purdue 20
The Wildcats survived this battle of unbeaten teams to improve to 4-0. Northwestern led most of the game behind a steady performance from Peyton Ramsey, who had a modest 212 passing yards but three touchdown passes. The Northwestern defense took care of the rest, holding the Boilermakers to two rushing yards on 17 carries. The Wildcats forced Purdue quarterback Aidan O’Connell to throw 51 passes. While he made some nice throws, completing 28 of those 51 passes wasn’t nearly enough. Northwestern came up with stops in the fourth quarter to preserve their one-score victory. The Big Ten West Division title is likely on the line next week when the Wildcats host Wisconsin.

Florida 63, Arkansas 35
Kyle Trask and the Florida offense were virtually unstoppable, especially in the first half when Trask had five of his six touchdown passes. The Gators held the ball for nearly 39 minutes and racked up nearly 600 yards of offense, as the Arkansas defense had no answers. Even backup quarterback Emory Jones had one rushing and one passing touchdown. The Florida defense also returned a fumble for a touchdown. Former Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks did his best to keep the Razorbacks in the game in his return to The Swamp. He threw for 250 yards and two touchdowns while the Hogs ran for over 200 yards. But Trask and company more than made up for a subpar performance by the Florida defense to give the Gators a comfortable win. Of course, Florida is still four wins away from securing a spot in the SEC title game and a chance to play their way into the College Football Playoff. Next up is a road game against Vanderbilt.

Oregon 43, Washington State 29
The Ducks found themselves on the ropes in this game, trailing 19-7 late in the second quarter. But that’s when Tyler Shough and the Oregon offense started to click, scoring right before halftime and then adding 29 points in the second half. Shough finished with 312 passing yards and four touchdowns, two of which went to backup running back Travis Dye. Meanwhile, starting running back CJ Verdell ran for 118 yards on 18 carries, helping the Oregon offense make up for three turnovers. Washington State quarterback Jayden de Laura also made plenty of good throws, as receivers Renard Bell and Travell Harris were outstanding after the catch. But the Oregon defense got enough stops to secure a two-touchdown win. The Ducks are now 2-0 and set to welcome former coach Chip Kelly and the UCLA Bruins to Eugene next week.
