NORMAN, Okla. (SportingAlert) — Results, scores and records from the NCAA College Football top 25 teams on Saturday (Sept. 20). There were victories for the top four ranked teams on the day.

But No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Oregon had to battle hard to secure victories on a night where ranked teams were also hit by setbacks.

The top ranked Florida State Seminoles, playing without star quarterback Jameis Winston, who was a suspended sideline cheerleader, needed overtime to beat No. 22 Clemson 23-17 at home.

It was also a battling encounter at the Martin Stadium, in Washington, as the No. 2 ranked Oregon Ducks battled to a 38-31 win over Washington State, with Heisman Trophy contender Marcus Mariota throwing for 329 yards and five touchdowns for the winners.

“He did a great job of rattling the defense in the second half,” Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said of Mariota. “The guy is special.”

He added about his team: “A road win in this conference is hard. “We are 4-0 and we got a big win on the road. There was a ton of adversity.”

No. 3 Alabama withstood some early pressure from Florida before pulling away from the Gators to score a 42-21 win.

At the Milan Puskar Stadium, freshman running back Samaje Perine rushed for three of his four touchdowns in the second half as No. 4 Oklahoma battled past West Virginia 45-33.

The Sooners outscored the Mountaineers 21-9 in the second half.

However, there were defeats on the same day for No. 8 LSU, who went down to Mississippi State, 34-29, with Dak Prescott throwing for 268 yards and ran for another 197. He also had three scores in the win for Mississippi State.

There was also a defeat for No. 18 Missouri, who were stunned 31-27 by Indiana.
