Hilliard leads LSU to comeback win over Badgers (Yahoo Sports)
Down 10 to Wisconsin already, LSU started the second half with a delay of game penalty on the opening kickoff. On the Badgers' first play from scrimmage, Melvin Gordon sprinted 63 yards up the middle to set up another touchdown. Kenny Hilliard scored on a 28-yard touchdown run to cap a fourth-quarter rally for No. 13 LSU in a 28-24 win over No. 14 Wisconsin at NRG Stadium on Saturday night. The Tigers trailed 24-21 when Jalen Mills intercepted Tanner McEvoy's pass at the LSU 47 with 11:04 left.
Golson leads No. 17 Irish to 48-17 win over Rice (Yahoo Sports)
Everett Golson looked better after a year off than he ever did in helping Notre Dame get to the national championship two seasons ago. In his first game back after missing last season for academic impropriety, Golson threw touchdown passes of 75 and 53 yards and became just the third Notre Dame quarterback to run for three touchdowns in a game as the Irish beat Rice 48-17 on Saturday. ''Everett Golson was electric,'' coach Brian Kelly said. He knew when to throw it.'' Golson was 14-of-22 passing for 295 yards and ran for 41 yards on 12 carries.
Sims starts, No. 2 Alabama beats WVU, 33-23 (Yahoo Sports)
Blake Sims took a seat on the bench next to Jake Coker after leading Alabama to a score and the two chatted for a few minutes before it was time for the offense to go back on the field. Conversation was the only thing Sims and Coker shared at the Georgia Dome. The quarterback job, Sims had that all to himself. The fifth-year senior played well enough in his first career start to keep playing, getting plenty of help from Amari Cooper, T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry, and the second-ranked Crimson Tide held off West Virginia 33-23 on Saturday.
Penn State tops UCF 26-24 with last-second FG (Yahoo Sports)

Behind second-half replacement quarterback Justin Holman, the Knights appeared to have scored their own unlikely come-from-behind victory when Holman's 6-yard touchdown run with 1:13 left put UCF up 24-23. Hackenberg ran 8 yards for a first down on a 4th-down play in Penn State's own half of the field during the final drive.
