EMOTIONAL VICTORY

Initially stunned by seeing Feleipe Franks lying in pain on the turf, Florida players soon swarmed the cart carrying him to uplift him - and then each other.

The No. 9 Gators then regrouped behind backup Kyle Trask to overwhelm Kentucky for an emotional victory.

Trask relieved the injured Franks and rallied Florida with three fourth-quarter touchdown drives, including his go-ahead, 4-yard scoring run with 4:11 remaining that lifted the Gators to a 29-21 victory.

Franks, the Gators' third-year starter, was carted off with a right leg injury late in the third quarter with his team trailing 21-10. Stopped for no gain by Calvin Taylor on fourth-and-1 at the Kentucky 38, Franks appeared to bend backward on the tackle. Medical personnel came on the field and placed an inflatable cast under his right leg and he was taken off to applause from the sellout crowd of 63,076.

TUA TIME

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa focused on what his team needs to work on instead of his career performance.

Sounds familiar, huh?

Tagovailoa threw for a career-best 444 yards - the third most in history for No. 2 Alabama - and tied his high with five touchdown passes in a 47-23 victory over South Carolina.

Tagovailoa, the All-American and Heisman Trophy contender, had TD throws of 24 yards to Najee Harris and 81 yards to Henry Ruggs III in the opening quarter. When the Gamecocks closed to 17-10, Tagovailoa hit Harris who finished a nifty run where he broke through one tackler, leaped over another and dragged a third over the goal line with him.

COMEBACK COUGARS

BYU should be getting accustomed to coming from behind to beat traditional powers.

Dayan Ghanwoloku intercepted a tipped pass in overtime after Jake Oldroyd kicked a 43-yard field to give the Cougars the lead, and BYU held on to beat No. 24 Southern California 30-27 - one week after a similar fourth-quarter rally to knock off Tennessee.

Zach Wilson threw for 280 yards and a touchdown while running for another score, Ty'Son Williams had 99 yards rushing, and the Cougars (2-1) capitalized on three crucial turnovers.

It took the Cougars a few minutes to digest that they had beaten a ranked opponent at home since defeating then-No. 20 Boise State in 2015. Fans stormed the field immediately after the interception Saturday, then stormed a second time when a review confirmed the call on the field.

NUMBERS

CITADEL UPSET

Coach Brent Thompson was working as The Citadel's offensive coordinator when the school upset South Carolina four years ago.

Now that he's got a signature win of his own, Thompson has a big building block for his team.

Jacob Godek kicked a 37-yard field goal in overtime, quarterback Brandon Rainey ran for one touchdown and passed for another, and FCS The Citadel stunned Georgia Tech with a 27-24 upset victory.

The Bulldogs (never trailed despite having lost FCS games at home to Towson and on the road to Elon. Beating the Jackets gave The Citadel its first win over an FBS opponent since 2015 against South Carolina. Before that, the Bulldogs had not won against the higher classification since knocking off Arkansas and Army in 1992.
