EAST LANSING, Mich. — Leo Musso returned a fumble 66 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter Saturday and No. 11 Wisconsin turned its early-season showdown with No. 8 Michigan State into a rout, beating the Spartans, 30-6.

Redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook threw for 195 yards and a touchdown in his first start for Wisconsin, outplaying fifth-year senior Tyler O’Connor, his Michigan State counterpart. The Badgers (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) were the better team in the first half, then outscored the Spartans 17-0 in the third quarter.

Michigan State (2-1, 0-1) was down 13-6 early in the third and had the ball in Wisconsin territory when L.J. Scott’s fumble bounced to Musso in the secondary. O’Connor was the only player with a decent shot at him on the return, and Musso spun past the quarterback and went all the way to the end zone.

O’Connor finished 18 of 38 for 224 yards with three interceptions.

Corey Clement ran for two touchdowns for Wisconsin.

(1) ALABAMA 48, KENT STATE 0: Jalen Hurts ran and passed for a touchdown, and tailback sub Joshua Jacobs scored his first two career touchdowns as Alabama (4-0) defeated Kent State (1-3) at Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

The Crimson Tide dominated Coach Nick Saban’s alma mater from the start while scoring on a kickoff return and even a short touchdown throw to freshman linebacker Mack Wilson. The bad news for Alabama was starting tailback Damien Harris went down on the opening drive with an apparent right ankle injury and didn’t return.

Harris was hardly needed in this game, when No. 2 quarterback Blake Barnett played much of the way and the emerging freshman Jacobs ran for 97 yards. It amounted to a respite for the Tide after a bruising 48-43 comeback win over Mississippi.

Hurts was 16-of-24 passing for 164 yards and ran for 54 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown to cap the opening drive. He found Wilson for a 1-yard third-quarter score.

(4) MICHIGAN 49, PENN STATE 10: De’Veon Smith led an overwhelming ground game with 107 yards rushing and a touchdown, and Karan Higdon ran for two scores as Michigan (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) routed Penn State (2-2, 0-1) at Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The Wolverines scored six touchdowns on the ground as they finished with 326 yards rushing. Wilton Speight threw one touchdown pass.

Michigan dominated both sides of the ball. Penn State has lost three straight to the Wolverines.

(23) MISSISSIPPI 45, (12) GEORGIA 14: Chad Kelly threw for 282 yards and two touchdowns, and ran for another score to lead Mississippi (2-2, 1-1 Southeastern) over Georgia (3-1, 1-1) at Oxford, Mississippi.

The Rebels dominated every phase of the game, building a lead of 31-0 by halftime and 45-0 by midway through the third quarter.

Ole Miss broke a 10-game losing streak in the series dating to 1996.

(13) FLORIDA STATE 55, SOUTH FLORIDA 35: Dalvin Cook rushed for a career-high 267 yards and two touchdowns as Florida State (3-1) rebounded from the most lopsided loss in school history by beating South Florida (3-1) at Tampa, Florida.

Cook scored on a 75-yard run on the Seminoles’ first play from scrimmage, an immediate response to South Florida starting the game with Quinton Flowers and Rodney Adams teaming on an 84-yard catch-and-run for a quick 7-0 lead. Cook’s rushing total on 28 carries topped his previous best of 266 yards against South Florida last year.

Florida State bounced back from being trounced 63-20 by Louisville, a road shellacking that dropped the Seminoles 11 spots in the AP Top 25 from No. 2.

(14) TENNESSEE 38, (19) FLORIDA 28: Joshua Dobbs accounted for five second-half touchdowns and Tennessee (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern) erased a 21-point deficit to beat Florida (3-1, 1-1) at Knoxville, Tennessee, and end their 11-game losing streak in the annual series.

This marks the first time Tennessee has beaten Florida since a 30-28 victory in 2004. The Volunteers had lost to Florida by a single point each of the last two years despite leading in the fourth quarter of both games.

This time Tennessee delivered the comeback by scoring 38 consecutive points.
