MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) The undefeated season was slipping away, and so was any realistic chance Miami had of getting into the College Football Playoff and competing for a national championship.

That is, until seven seconds changed everything.

Just like that, a 14-point deficit was gone - and perfection remains within the Hurricanes' reach.


OU rolls after KU disrespects Mayfield

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield threw for 257 yards and three touchdowns after getting dissed by the Kansas captains before kickoff, leading the No. 3 Sooners to a 41-3 rout of the Jayhawks on Saturday.

Mayfield had tried shaking hands with Daniel Wise, Dorance Armstrong Jr. and Joe Dineen Jr. after the coin toss, but they stared stoically back at him. Mayfield quickly pulled his hand away, clapped a couple of times and set about burnishing his Heisman Trophy candidacy.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Sam Ehlinger helped Texas get that elusive win over a ranked opponent.

Ohio State cruises to Big 10 East crown

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) No. 8 Ohio State scored on its first six possessions - including J.T. Barrett's 100th career touchdown pass - as the Buckeyes routed Illinois 52-14 on Saturday and clinched the Big Ten East title.

Barrett, playing in his last game at Ohio Stadium, threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as the Buckeyes (9-2, 7-1, CFP No. 9) dominated from the opening kick. Barrett became the Ohio State leader in rushing yards among quarterbacks (3,070), eclipsing Braxton Miller. He now holds 35 Big Ten and school records.


No. 9 Irish rebound, rally to beat Navy

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Brandon Wimbush threw for 164 yards and two touchdowns and ran for a score as No. 9 Notre Dame rallied in the rain and wind to beat Navy 24-17 Saturday.

Wearing throwback uniforms with the name Rockne on the back of every player's jersey and helmets designed to evoke the leather tops from the era of Knute Rockne, one of the Fighting Irish's most famous names, Notre Dame (9-2, No. 8 College Football Playoff) kept their slim national championship hopes alive heading into their regular-season finale next Saturday at Stanford.


Miss. St. survives 4 fumbles, beats Hogs

No. 1 Alabama rolls 56-0, Iron Bowl next

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama came out of the locker room with one touchdown drive after another, clearly not too distracted by thoughts of the Iron Bowl.

Jalen Hurts passed for 180 yards and three touchdowns in a little more than a quarter and the top-ranked Crimson Tide beat FCS team Mercer 56-0 on Saturday with a precision performance in an obvious mismatch.


Milton has 4 TDs, UCF stays unbeaten

PHILADELPHIA (AP) �� There were so many reasons for UCF coach Scott Frost to worry about his team's focus this week.

With a huge game looming, playing an improving Temple team in a stadium where the empty seats outnumbered the filled ones by about a 3-1 ratio on a chilly, gray day had all the makings of a tricky spot for the Knights.


TCU rips Texas Tech behind freshman QB

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Shawn Robinson became the first true freshman quarterback to start a game for No. 11 TCU in coach Gary Patterson's 17 seasons as head coach.

Even after a 27-3 win over Texas Tech that got the Horned Frogs closer to a spot in the Big 12 championship game, Patterson kept to his policy of not letting freshmen talk to the media after the game.
