AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Chris Davis returned a missed field goal over 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to give fourth-ranked Auburn a 34-28 thriller against the No. 1 Crimson Tide. Davis caught Adam Griffith's 57-yard attempt near the back of the end zone, then sprinted up the left side before cutting right with nothing but teammates surrounding him. The TD came just 32 seconds after the Tigers tied the game on Nick Marshall's 39-yard scoring pass to Sammie Coates.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Second-ranked Florida State clobbered Florida 37-7 to keep its BCS title hopes alive. Jameis (JAY'-mihs) Winston threw three touchdown passes to Kelvin Benjamin to help the No. 2 Seminoles improve to 12-0 for the first time since 1999. FSU will likely earn a spot in the BCS title game with a win over Duke in the ACC Championship game next week.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Third-ranked Ohio State turned back a last minute bid for an upset to hold off Michigan 42-41. The Buckeyes ran their record to 12-0 and extended their winning streak to 24 games when the Wolverines failed on a two-point conversion with 32 seconds left. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller accounted for five touchdowns and Carlos Hyde spearheaded a punishing running game with 226 rushing yards and a TD.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Bryce Petty threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as ninth-ranked Baylor outscored TCU 41-38 to keep alive their quest for a possible BCS bowl appearance. The Bears also returned two interceptions for touchdowns and clinched the victory when Terrell Burt picked off Casey Pachal in the end zone with 11 seconds left.

UNDATED (AP) — The athletic directors for Nebraska and Florida say they plan to retain their head football coaches. Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini has an 8-4 record that includes bad losses to UCLA, Minnesota and Iowa. Gators AD Jeremy Foley says he has total confidence in coach Will Muschamp despite the team's 4-7 record, Florida's first losing season since 1979
