NORMAN, Okla. (Sporting Alert) — College football results and box scores from the top 25 games that were played on Saturday Dec. 6.
Among the winners on Saturday were defending champions Florida State, Oklahoma State, Alabama, as well as Ohio State and Baylor.
No. 2 Florida State fended off a strong challenge from Georgia Tech to secure its third straight ACC title, following a very close 37-35 victory at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
Quarterback Jameis Winston completed 21 of 30 passes and threw for 309 yards and three touchdowns in the win as the Seminoles (13-0, 8-0 ACC) extended their winning streak to 29 games.
“He’s elite, he’s special,” Fisher said. “He’s different than anybody I’ve ever been around.
“That’s simple. … When he has a job to do and people counting on him, that’s what a man does.”
Rashad Greene finished with seven catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns in the victory.
The win to go along with their undefeated season, should be enough to earn Florida State a spot in the College Football Playoff, although there have been several other cries for the likes of Ohio State and Baylor to be in.
A relaxed Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher believes his “amazing” team, which plays together, should have no problems making the playoff.
“There ain’t no decision to be made — the decision just got made,” Fisher said after his team’s victory.
“Last year’s team was dominating, this year’s team is more amazing,” Fisher added. “It is really is. … They compete together.
“They have had some struggles together and I think that’s what makes them so tight.”
Meanwhile, Oklahoma State dug deep to win the battle for state bragging right after beating arch rival Oklahoma in the annual Bedlam.
The Sooners came into the contest as the overwhelming favourites to secure a third successive win in this fixture, but those predictions didn’t go according to plan.
The last few meetings between these two teams have been close and exciting, and Saturday night’s contest in the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium was no different, as once again, a last play sealed the win.
Ben Grogan made a 21 yard field goal to help unranked Oklahoma State upset No. 20 Oklahoma 38-35 in overtime in the Bedlam in Norman, on Saturday night.
The Cowboys managed to rally from being down 21-35 in the fourth quarter to send the game into overtime, with Tyreek Hill returning a 92 yard punt for a touchdown with 0:45 seconds left in the game.
In overtime play, Michael Hunnicutt missed a 44 yard field goal attempt, which setup the opportunity for Grogan to convert his try later on and win the game for Oklahoma State (6-6, 4-5 Big 12), which picked up its first win since Oct. 11 and ended a five game losing streak.
The Cowboys’ win on Saturday, was also the first for Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy in Norman, while the team because bowl eligible.
OSU stopped a two game losing streak to OU with the win as well.
Mason Rudolph completed 19 of 35 passes for 273 yards and threw two touchdowns for OSU, while Brandon Sheperd made seven catches for 156 yards and two touchdowns.
Desmond Roland carried the ball 18 times for 68 yards and two touchdowns.
Oklahoma (8-4, 5-4 Big 12) star freshman running back Samaje Perine had 26 carries for 151 yards and two touchdowns before he was forced to leave the game with what looked like an ankle injury.
Aaron Ripkowski also finished with two touchdowns for the Sooners, which dropped its fourth game of the season.
Oklahoma, who scored three touchdowns in the second quarter, held a 28-14 lead at halftime.
Also on the day, No. 1 Alabama (12-1, 7-1 SEC) scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to setup a 42-13 victory over Missouri (10-3, 7-1 SEC) in the Southeastern Conference championship game.
Derrick Henry and T.J. Yeldon each rushed for two touchdowns apiece, while Blake Sims completed 23 of 27 passes for 262 yards.
Henry rushed for a career-best 141 yards on 20 carries, while DeAndrew White led the Crimson Tide in receiving with 101 yards on four catches to go along with his touchdown.
No. 5 Ohio State blews out No, 13 Wisconsin (10-3, 7-1 Big Ten) 59-0 in the Big Ten championship game to make a statement, which was echoed by head coach Urban Meyer.
The Buckeyes (10-3, 7-1 Big Ten) won the game without first choice quarterbacks J.T. Barrett, who broke his right ankle in the final regular-season game a week ago and Braxton Miller, who had been out since August with a right shoulder injury.
Third string QD Cardale Jones threw for 257 yards and three touchdowns on 12 of 17 passes in his first career start. He was named MVP of the game.
“I don’t think there’s any doubt we’re one of the top four teams in America,” said Meyer after the win.
