RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Micale Cunningham threw four TD passes as Louisville clinched bowl eligibility with a 34-20 win over N.C. State. The big-play passing game of Louisville proved too much to handle for an N.C. State team missing its top five cornerbacks because of injury.

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Tommy DeVito threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another, and Syracuse routed Duke 49-6 to snap a four-game losing streak. Andre Cisco returned an interception 48 yards for a TD to help the last-place Orange earn their first win against a power-conference team. Syracuse had a season-best 286 yards rushing.

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson starting receivers Justyn Ross and Amari Rodgers were hurt in the first half against Wake Forest and are not expected back. Ross hurt himself late in the opening half. He walked off the field, but appeared sluggish as he moved into the locker room. Rodgers appeared to hurt his right shoulder on a 52-yard punt return in the first quarter. He came out of the medial tent stretching and rotating his right arm.

ATLANTA (AP) — Hendon Hooker ran for two touchdowns and Virginia Tech rode its dominant defense to a 45-0 win over Georgia Tech, giving the Yellow Jackets their first shutout loss in 22 years. Hooker improved to 5-0 as a starter. Virginia Tech continued its surge as it competes for a spot in the ACC championship game.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — James Blackman threw three touchdown passes and Khalan Laborn had two TD runs as Florida State defeated FCS Alabama State 42-12 on Saturday. The Seminoles (6-5) are bowl-eligible under interim head coach Odell Haggins for the second time in three years. Haggins is 4-0 as a coach, first filling in at the end of the 2017 season after Jimbo Fisher left for Texas A&M and now after the dismissal of Willie Taggart on Nov. 3.
