Top Performers: Week 14
SJSU's Fales sets school record; Tennessee's Miller sets sack mark
San Jose State 62, No. 16 Fresno State 52 Box Score
David Fales threw for a school-record 547 yards and six touchdowns in an entertaining showdown with David Carr and San Jose State spoiled the No. 16 Fresno State's perfect season with a 62-52 victory. Fales was every bit as good as the more heralded Carr, matching his six first-half touchdown passes in a near perfect performance that made the Spartans bowl eligible with their first win against a ranked opponent since 2000. Fales’ 13-for-13 to start the game was a personal best and the fifth most consecutive completions in a Mountain West game. Fales’ six touchdown passes were a personal single-game best.

Tennessee 27, Kentucky 14 Box Score
Tennessee defensive end Corey Miller, who entered the game with five career sacks, had a record 4.5 to pass Reggie White, who had four against The Citadel in 1983. It was the first career multi-sack game in the final game of his Tennessee career to help the Vols finish the 2013 season on a high note in a 27-14 win at Kentucky. Miller finished with seven tackles and also forced a fumble in his final collegiate game.
No. 4 Auburn 34, No. 1 Alabama 28Box Score
Chris Davis returned a missed field-goal attempt more than 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34-28 victory against No. 1 Alabama on Saturday, upending the two-time defending national champions' BCS hopes and preserving the Tigers' own. Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffith's 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-to-fathom finish for the Tigers. It is the third time in NCAA history that a missed field goal was returned for 100 yards and the first time since 1968 (Clemson vs. Georgia - Richie Luzzi for Clemson). The only other time was 1966 (California vs. Washington State - Don Guest for California).
