When Alabama couldn't shake Texas A&M in a battle of unbeaten, Top 10 teams, it was Jonathan Allen's scoop-and-score defensive touchdown that effectively brushed aside the latest would-be challenger.

What else?

A star defensive end, Allen returned a fumble 30 yards for a touchdown in the final seconds of the third quarter to help Alabama beat the sixth-ranked Aggies 33-14 and continue a non-offensive scoring streak that's as impressive as those 20 consecutive wins.

The Crimson Tide moved on as the powerhouse league's last unbeaten team, getting yet another in a long string of defensive scores. Allen scooped up the ball after Ryan Anderson knocked it loose from Keith Ford to finally build a cushion over the Aggies, who led 14-13 well into the third.

The score was 20-14 when Allen extended Alabama's streak to 10 games with a score on defense or special teams, pushing the season's total to 12. Allen now has scored twice on fumble returns.

Five years after Utah running back Joe Williams and UCLA quarterback Mike Fafaul left Fork Union Military Academy together, they both posted record-breaking performances on the same wild afternoon.

Only Williams left the Rose Bowl happy with his effort – and his decision to get back in the game with the Utes.

Williams rushed for a school-record 332 yards and four touchdowns in his second game back from retirement, and No. 19 Utah held off pass-happy UCLA 52-45.

Williams broke off TD runs of 3, 43, 64 and 55 yards during the greatest rushing day in Utah (7-1, 4-1 Pac-12) history, surpassing Mike Anderson's 1999 record, and the most prolific rushing performance ever by a UCLA opponent.
