The loss of Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa for the season is the story of Saturday.

No. 8 Minnesota saw its undefeated season come to an end, and No. 13 Baylor suffered a similar fate at the hands of Oklahoma.

Here’s a recap of some of the best top 25 action of the day.

Top 25 results

No. 10 Oklahoma 34, No. 13 Baylor 31

Nik Bonitto’s interception of Baylor QB Charlie Brewer in the closing seconds sealed an unbelievable comeback win for the Sooners (9-1, 6-1 Big 12), handing Baylor (9-1, 6-1) its first loss of the season.

Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts threw four touchdown passes — two to Austin Stogner — to rally OU from a massive 25-point early deficit. Gabe Brkic’s field goal late in the game put the Sooners in front.

It was quite a turnaround for Hurts, who also lost two fumbles and threw an interception. Two of those turnovers led directly to BU scores.

Brewer’s two touchdown runs and two TD passes to Denzel Mims gave the the Bears their early lead.

No. 4 Georgia 21, No. 12 Auburn 14

The Bulldogs (9-1, 6-1 SEC) won the SEC East for the third year in a row with their victory over the Tigers (7-3, 4-3).

Auburn didn’t make it easy.

Trailing 21-0, the Tigers scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to pull within 21-14 with 7:03 to play. Driving for the tying score, Auburn’s Bo Nix couldn’t complete a pass on fourth-and-2 at the Georgia 34 with 2:29 to play.

Auburn got the ball back at its 27 with 2:10 left but couldn’t go anywhere. Nix was sacked on fourth down, ending the Tigers’ last shot to tie the score.

Georgia opened the scoring with a 51-yard TD pass from Jake Fromm to Dominick Blaylock and added another with 20 seconds left in the first half on a Fromm to Brian Herrien connection.

Herrien’s score came on the play after he accidentally knocked out a Georgia student photographer on the sideline in a scary collision.

Auburn started a drive at Georgia’s 43-yard line midway through the third quarter but didn’t go anywhere and had to punt. Georgia made the Tigers pay, driving 88 yards in 13 plays — capped by Fromm’s third TD pass of the day — for a 21-0 lead.

No. 5 Alabama 38, Mississippi State 7

Alabama scored 14 points in a 14-second span of the first quarter, but star QB Tua Tagovailoa was carted off the field in the second quarter with a hip injury — and he’s out for the season.


Tagovailoa and the Tide (9-1, 6-1 SEC) had a 35-7 lead at the time of the second-quarter injury.

Najee Harris had three first-half TD runs for Alabama. Kylin Hill has a TD run for Mississippi State (4-6, 2-5).

No. 20 Iowa 23, No. 8 Minnesota 19

P.J. Fleck’s boat has sprung a leak.

The Golden Gophers (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten) — who were 9-0 for the first time since 1904 — suffered their first loss of the season to the Hawkeyes (7-3, 4-3).

Minnesota cut the lead to 23-19 with 3:27 left on 1-yard TD run from Rodney Smith, but the Gophers missed the extra point.

Getting the ball back at their own 20 with 1:59 to play, Tanner Morgan was sacked on back-to-back plays. He was hurt on the second-down play and left the game. A third-and-21 pass fell incomplete, and a fourth-down pass was intercepted.

No. 9 Penn State 34, Indiana 27

Sean Clifford ran into the end zone on fourth-and-goal with 1:44 left as Penn State rebounded for the victory.

The game-clinching drive took 18 plays and used up nine minutes of the final quarter.

Indiana kicked a field goal to cut the lead to 34-27 with 13 seconds left, but Penn State recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock.

Peyton Ramsey’s second rushing TD had pulled the Hoosiers (7-3, 4-3 Big Ten) within a field goal of the Nittany Lions (9-1, 6-1).

But they also had this fake punt, which was one to forget.

Clifford had a TD pass and two TD runs for Penn State, which was coming off its first loss of the season last week to Minnesota.

No. 11 Florida 23, Missouri 6

The Gators (9-2, 6-2 SEC), coming off a 56-0 rout of Vanderbilt, had lost two straight to the Tigers (5-5, 2-4), but two third-quarter TDs helped them pull away in this one.

No. 14 Wisconsin 37, Nebraska 21

The Badgers (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) continued their recent dominance against the Huskers (4-6, 2-5), who gave head coach Scott Frost a two-year contract extension earlier in the day.

Jack Coan’s 55-yard TD pass to A.J. Taylor helped Wisconsin regain the lead at 17-14 with 6:39 left in the first half, and Jonathan Taylor — who broke a Herschel Walker record on Saturday — added a TD run 1:36 later as part of a 20-point second quarter. The Badgers’ Aron Cruickshank also returned a kickoff 89 yards for a score.

This was one positive play for Nebraska.

The Wolverines (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) rebounded from an early seven-point deficit to take charge and beat the Spartans (4-6, 2-5) in the Big House for the first time since 2012.

Shea Patterson threw an 18-yard TD pass to Donovan Peoples-Jones as Michigan opened it up in the second half. The teams then traded third-quarter field goals before a Michigan blocked punt led to a TD pass from Patterson to Nico Collins for a 34-10 lead.

Patterson capped a 12-play, 98-yard drive with a 5-yard TD pass to Nick Eubanks as Michigan took a 14-7 lead with 4:18 to play in the first half. Trailing 7-0, Michigan drove 68 yards in seven plays — capped by a Hassan Haskins 1-yard TD run — to tie the score 7-7.

Michigan added a 28-yard field goal from Quinn Nordin to take a 17-7 halftime lead.

Brian Lewerke threw a 1-yard TD pass to Max Rosenthal with 1:48 left in the first quarter as Michigan State struck first. Lewerke converted a fourth-and-1 at the Michigan 37 with a 7-yard run, then hit Cody White with a 29-yard completion to the Michigan 1 on the next play to set up the score.
