Cardale Jones — the Buckeyes’ No. 3 quarterback — led Ohio State to a Big Ten title. Jones threw for 257 yards and three touchdowns and was named the game’s MVP in his first career start, leading No. 6 Ohio State to a 59-0 rout of No. 11 Wisconsin.
Florida State has made its case to play for a second straight national championship. Jameis Winston threw for 309 yards and three touchdowns, and second-ranked Seminoles held off No. 12 Georgia Tech 37-35 Saturday night to win their third consecutive ACC championship.
Tate Martell opened the season splitting time with Bishop Gorman’s second team. He finished the season with an incredible performance in leading the Gaels to their sixth consecutive state football championship before a crowd that included former heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali.
Blake Sims threw a pair of touchdown passes, T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry each had a couple of touchdown runs, and top-ranked Alabama pulled away in the fourth quarter to win its 24th Southeastern Conference championship with a 42-13 rout of No. 14 Missouri on Saturday.
