NEW YORK -- Jay Graham broke loose for a 79-yard touchdown run with 2:17 left Saturday as No. 6 Tennessee rallied from a 13-0 deficit for a 20-13 victory to hand No. 7 Alabama its first loss of the season.


Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning was just 12 of 25 for 176 yards. He had a 54-yard touchdown pass to Joey Kent in the third quarter, was intercepted once and sacked four times by a defense ranked fourth nationally in total yards (206.7).


The loss dropped the visiting Crimson Tide (7-1, 4-1 SEC) from the unbeaten ranks, while the Vols improved to 5-1 (3-1).

No. 3 Florida State 31, No. 14 Virginia 24. At Tallahassee, Florida, Thad Busby was 25 of 36 for 316 yards and two touchdowns, Warrick Dunn scored on a 65-yard run and the Seminoles (6-0, 5-0 ACC) avenged their only conference loss ever.


No. 4 Arizona State 41, Stanford 9. At Stanford, California, Jake Plummer threw two touchdowns and ran for another as the Sun Devils (8-0, 5-0 Pac-10) raced to a 21-0 first-quarter lead and breezed past the Cardinals (2-5, 1-3).


No. 8 Colorado 28, Texas 24. At Boulder, Colorado, John Hessler, subbing for an injured Koy Detmer, led two second-half touchdown drives and safety Steve Rosga intercepted a pass with 1:35 left as the Buffaloes (6-1, 4-0 Big 12) rallied to beat the Longhorns (3-4, 2-2).


No. 11 Northwestern 27, Illinois 24. At Evanston, Illinois, Adrian Autry's second 1-yard touchdown run -- with 62 seconds left -- lifted the Wildcats (7-1, 5-0 Big Ten) to another nail-biting win.


No. 13 LSU 28, Mississippi State 20. At Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Kevin Faulk ran for 170 yards and two touchdowns and passed for a third as the Tigers (6-1, 4-1 SEC) rushed for 246 yards against the Bulldogs (2-4, 1-3).
