Top Performers: Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott, Alabama's Eddie Jackson, Ok. State's Ben Grogan

Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio State

With Ohio State floundering against a feisty Indiana, running back Ezekiel Elliott helped dig the Buckeyes out of a hole with a career day. Elliott rushed for a career-high 274 yards -- 243 of which came in the second half. Down 10-6 after halftime, Elliott scored two huge rushing touchdowns to give Ohio State its first and second lead of the game. Elliott notched a 55-yard rushing score midway through the third quarter and pounded his way 75 yards to paydirt for another touchdown late in the quarter. Another 75-yard touchdown by Elliott in the fourth gave the Buckeyes 14-point lead, helping Ohio State fend off Indiana for the 34-27 win.

Eddie Jackson, Alabama

Alabama came to Athens, Georgia hungry for a statement win, and the Crimson Tide certainly delivered with a devastating 38-10 win over No. 8 Georgia. Early into the second half with a 24-3 lead, defensive back Eddie Jackson intercepted Bulldog quarterback Greyson Lambert at midfield But Jackson didn’t stop there, as he wove through traffic for the 50-yard pick six to put the Tide up big in what ended up being a blowout win.

Ben Grogan, Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State had its hands full with Kansas State on Saturday, but kicker Ben Grogan put the upset to bed with a game-winning field in the final minute of the contest. After the Wildcats took a 34-36 lead over the Cowboys with three minutes to play, Oklahoma State drove down the field to set up Grogan with a 37-yard field goal, which he converted with ease to secure the win for the 20th-ranked team in the country.
