The Gators scored three times in the second quarter, enough to put Kentucky away and extend the nation’s longest winning streak in a current series between two teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

The Wildcats played without quarterback Maxwell Smith. He sat out with a shoulder injury. Backup Morgan Newton threw three interceptions.

No. 16 OHIO STATE 29, UAB 15

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) _ Braxton Miller ran for two touchdowns and Ohio State overcame a lethargic, mistake-filled effort to hold off UAB.

UAB (0-3) more than held its own against the Buckeyes (4-0), who committed drive-killing penalties, had a punt blocked for a touchdown and had trouble scoring against a defense giving up 44 points and 477 yards a game.

The Blazers picked up points on special teams and started the second half by recovering an onside kick, but were undone by four chop-block penalties and a giveaway that led to a score.

Miller completed passes for 12, 14 and 18 yards and ran for 26 yards to set up his own clinching 1-yard TD run with 5:03 left.

No. 17 TCU 27, VIRGINIA 7

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) _ Brandon Carter had a 68-yard touchdown on one of his two one-handed catches, linebacker Kenny Cain recovered a fumble along with two interceptions and TCU won its 11th straight game.

Casey Pachall threw for 305 yards and three touchdowns for the Horned Frogs (3-0), whose winning streak is the longest among FBS schools.

Josh Boyce had his TCU-record 18th touchdown catch. Freshman Jaden Oberkrom had field goals of 46 and 47 yards, the second field goal set up by Cain’s 40-yard interception return.

The Frogs hadn’t allowed a touchdown this season until Virginia (2-2) finally scored with 4 1/2 minutes left, when backup quarterback Phillip Sims threw a 5-yard TD to E.J. Scott.

Carter had five catches for 128 yards, his second consecutive 100-yard receiving game.
