UNDATED (AP) -- Top-ranked Florida State managed to win without its reigning Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback.

Jameis (JAYM'-ihs) Winston looked on as Karlos Williams scored on a 12-yard run in overtime to give the Seminoles a 23-17 win over No. 22 Clemson. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney declined to attempt a 33-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime and Adam Choice was stuffed for no gain on fourth-and-1. Two plays later, Williams bounced outside and went untouched into the end zone.

Seminoles quarterback Sean Maguire made his first career start and completed 21 of 39 passes for 305 yards, two interceptions and a game-tying, 74-yard touchdown to Rashad Greene with 6:04 left in regulation. Magquire got the start in place of Winston, who was suspended for the game after making "offensive and vulgar" comments earlier this week on campus.

-- Marcus Mariota's (mar-ee-OH'-tahz) six-yard TD pass to Keanon Lowe with 5:33 left allowed second-ranked Oregon to escape with a 38-31 victory against Washington State at Pullman. Mariota added to his Heisman resume by completing 21 of his 25 passes for 329 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions. Connor Halliday kept the Cougars close by completing 43 of 63 throws for 436 yards and four touchdowns.

-- Third-ranked Alabama generated so much offense, it even allowed Florida to score a few points.

The Gators turned four Crimson Tide turnovers into 21 points, the only scoring Florida could muster in a 42-21 loss to Alabama.

Blake Sims recorded the Crimson Tide's second-best passing day with 445 yards, including touchdown passes of 87 yards to Kenyan Drake on the opening play and 79 to Amari Cooper later in the first quarter. Cooper caught 10 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns after entering the game leading the nation in receptions.

Gators quarterback Jeff Driskel was 9-of-28 passing for 93 yards and was intercepted twice while his offense produced just 200 yards. Meanwhile, Florida surrendered a school-record 645 yards.

The Tide are 4-0 after winning their SEC opener.

-- Mississippi State posted a 34-29 win at eighth-ranked LSU behind the work of quarterback Dak Prescott, who had 373 yards of total offense. Prescott passed for 268 yards and two touchdowns and highlighted his 105 yards rushing with a 56-yard scoring run.

LSU erased most of a 24-point, fourth-quarter deficit before a last-second desperation heave by LSU backup quarterback Brandon Harris was intercepted by Will Redmond at the goal line.

In other AP Top-25 action:

-- Samaje Perine rushed for 242 yards and four touchdowns to lead No. 4 Oklahoma to a 45-33 win over West Virginia. Alex Ross scored on a 100-yard kickoff return and quarterback Trevor Knight caught a 4-yard scoring pass on a trick play for the 4-0 Sooners.

-- Kenny Hill accounted for 322 yards of offense in just the first half, and Jeremy Tabuyo turned two short passes into long touchdowns as sixth-ranked Texas A&M crushed SMU 58-6. Trey Williams ran for a pair of touchdowns to help the Aggies improve to 4-0 for the first time in eight years.

-- Connor Cook threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score as No. 11 Michigan State scored the third-most points in program history in smashing Eastern Michigan 73-14. The 2-1 Spartans came within three points of matching the school record set in 1989 against Northwestern

-- Sony Michel ran for 155 yards and three touchdowns to highlight a big day for freshmen in 13th-ranked Georgia's 66-0 rout of Troy. Among other standout frosh for Georgia were receiver Isaiah McKenzie, who scored on a 52-yard punt return, and Bryce Ramsey, who threw his first career TD pass.

-- Steve Spurrier is second on the SEC's all-time wins list for coaches with 202 after 14th-rated South Carolina rallied from 14 points down to beat Vanderbilt 48-34. Dylan Thompson threw for 237 yards and three touchdowns, and he ran for another score.

-- D'Angelo Roberts ran for a three-yard touchdown with 22 seconds left to lift Indiana past No. 18 Missouri 31-27. Nate Sudfeld passed for 252 yards and a touchdown.

-- Melvin Gordon rushed for career highs of 253 yards and five touchdowns, and No. 19 Wisconsin ran for a Big Ten-record 644 yards to trample Bowling Green, 68-17.

-- Taysom Hill threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as No. 21 Brigham Young rallied to beat Virginia 41-33. Hill completed 13 of 23 for 187 yards and rushed for another 72 on 17 carries.

-- No. 24 Nebraska knocked off Miami 41-31 as Ameer Abdullah ran 35 times for 229 yards. Tommy Armstrong Jr. passed for 113 yards and two touchdowns and ran 13 times for 96 for the Cornhuskers.
