TIDE TEST

Alabama's suffocating defense bottled up Leonard Fournette and allowed freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts the luxury of a few scoreless quarters to get accustomed to operating in deafening Death Valley against a talented, stingy LSU defense.

Hurts finally broke loose for a 21-yard touchdown run to break a scoreless tie early in the fourth quarter, and No. 1 Alabama remained unbeaten with a 10-0 shutout of the 15th-ranked Tigers on Saturday night.

The Crimson Tide won for the sixth straight time against LSU and remained alone in first place in the SEC West – a game ahead of Auburn.

AGGIES GO DOWN

Mississippi State's Nick Fitzgerald was hit a few yards shy of the end zone as one, two and then three Texas A&M defenders tried to pull him to the ground.

But the 6-foot-5, 230-pounder kept stumbling and straining, dragging the Aggies along with him as he finally fell into the end zone for a crucial touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

The sophomore quarterback – and these Bulldogs – weren't going to be denied in a 35-28 upset win over No. 7 Texas A&M, all but ending the Aggies' College Football Playoff hopes.

Fitzgerald's bruising 4-yard touchdown run was one of the many highlights for Mississippi State's running game, which finished with a season-high 365 yards. Fitzgerald ran for 182 yards and two touchdowns while Aeris Williams ran for a career-high 140 yards and a touchdown.

The Aggies were ranked No. 4 in the first College Football Playoff rankings released on Tuesday, but will now almost certainly tumble out of contention.

JACKSON'S HEISMAN STATEMENT

Forearm cramps and finger numbness threatened to do what Boston College's defense couldn't: derail Lamar Jackson's Heisman Trophy run .

The Louisville quarterback left the game late in the second quarter after opening a five-touchdown lead, then he returned in the third quarter to run for another two touchdowns and lead the fifth-ranked Cardinals to a 52-7 victory over BC.

Jackson ran for a 69-yard score on the game's third play and added rushing TDs of 13 and 53 yards in the second half. The Heisman favorite also threw for TDs from 30, 44 and 10 yards out.

NUMBERS

9-Straight wins by The Citadel , a school record, after beating Samford 37-34.

69-Points by No. 25 Washington State against Arizona, its highest points total since 1997 and the most ever against a Pac-12 opponent.

1,521-Career yards receiving by Michigan's Jake Butt , most by a tight end in school history.
