Stunner

Florida State committed five turnovers as North Carolina, 0-3 and a 17-point underdog, used a 34-point second half to stun the No. 6 Seminoles 41-9. It was just Florida State's third ACC loss in nine-plus seasons -- a span of 74 games. North Carolina beat its highest-ranked team since a 7-6 victory over No. 6 Duke in 1960. The loss was Florida State's worst since a 52-20 drubbing by Florida in the 1997 Sugar Bowl, and worst in the regular season since a 59-27 defeat by Auburn in 1985.

Status

Michigan State offensive lineman Paul Harker was released from a South Bend, Ind., hospital Sunday, a day after he collapsed during the Spartans' victory over Notre Dame. The 6-foot-3, 303-pound junior returned to the Michigan State campus with his parents, the university said. Harker was kept overnight for observation and released from St. Joseph Regional Medical Center after all test results were normal, said Michigan State head trainer Jeff Monroe. He will be indefinitely sidelined until further tests can be done, Monroe said.

Superb in defeat

Western Michigan quarterback Jeff Welsh was 36 of 58 for 374 yards with two touchdown passes and a touchdown run in a 38-21 loss to Michigan. Welsh's completions and attempts broke school records.

Strong finish

Bryson Spinner's 1-yard touchdown pass to Billy McMullen with a second left gave Virginia a 26-24 victory over No. 19 Clemson.
