Three of the five undefeated teams went down this week, and 2 of them lost at home. Michigan State and Baylor shook up the college football world and TCU almost upset Oklahoma. Two SEC East teams went into OT against so-called “cupcake” opponents. There are only 2 weeks left before the final rankings come out, and with Rivalry Week coming up, anything could happen.
How I Fared: (4-2 this week, 42-32 overall)
-Alabama scored 49 points in the first half to beat Charleston Southern 56-6. Derrick Henry rushed for 2TDs on just 9 carries for 68 yards. This was a tune-up game for the Iron Bowl for the Tide.
-Florida got a big scare with Florida Atlantic. The Owls came into the Swamp and forced OT but the Gators survived with a 20-14 win. Treon Harris threw 2TDs and RB Kelvin Taylor rushed for 106 yards and a TD. Neither team scored in the first half.
-Ole Miss beat LSU 38-17 to keep their SEC West hopes alive. LSU continues to slide and has now lost 3 games in a row and it looks like Les Miles will not be in Baton Rouge next season. Chad Kelly had a big game (like I predicted), throwing 2TDs and rushing for 2 more. Leonard Fournette had 108 yards on the ground, but did not find the end zone.
-South Carolina lost to The Citadel 22-23. SCAR went up 22-17 midway through the 4th quarter, but couldn’t convert on the two-point play. The Citadel scored on their next drive and the Gamecocks turned the ball over on downs on their final 2 drives of the game. Tyler Renew rushed for 174 yards and 2 scores for the Bulldogs.
-Auburn earned its 6th win over the season with a 56-34 win over Idaho. This means, that for the second straight season, all 7 of the SEC West teams are bowl eligible (hopefully they will do better than 2-5 this time around). Tiger QB Jeremy Johnson threw 2TDs and rushed for 2 more. The Vandals turned the ball over 3 times in this game.
-Mississippi State beat Arkansas 51-50 in a game that featured career games for both QBs. Dak Prescott was 30/50 for 508 yards, 5TDs and an INT (that was deflected), and also rushed for 2TDs. Brandon Allen was 30/43 for 406 yards and 7TDs (and also caught a two-point conversion). His final TD of the night, the 63rd of his career, he broke Ryan Mallett’s school record for career TD passes. Mississippi State blocked Cole Hedlund’s 29-yard go-ahead FG attempt at the end to secure the win. The Hogs went into halftime down 31-21, but forced turnovers on three consecutive Bulldog drives and scored TDs on all of them to go into the 4th with a 42-31 lead. The Arkansas defense couldn’t stop Dak in the 4th quarter and even though State missed a PAT, the Hogs only scored once in the final 15 minutes. It was freezing in the stands. But the Hogs are even with the state of Mississippi now. Neither defense really showed up for this game.
-Georgia needed OT to beat Georgia Southern 23-17 at home. Sony Michel was the MVP for the Bulldogs, rushing for 132 yards and the game-winning TD in OT. The SEC East is not having a good year.
-Tennessee got out to an early lead and beat Missouri 19-8 in Gary Pinkel’s final home game for the Tigers. Missouri’s staunch defense played a big part in this game, forcing 5 FG attempts from Tennessee. Vols kicker Aaron Medley connected on 4 of them. Josh Dobbs ran for a TD and Jalen Hurd racked up 151 yards on the ground. Drew Lock rushed for Missouri’s only score of the night.
-Texas A&M blanked Vanderbilt 25-0. Vanderbilt might have a very good defense, but much like Missouri, their offense is sluggish at best. Aggie kicker Taylor Bertolet was 6/7 on FGs. Kyle Allen threw for 336 yards and a TD to Josh Reynolds. Vanderbilt only had 148 total yards (still more than Ohio State, but I’ll get to that in a minute).
-Kentucky routed Charlotte 58-10 to keep their bowl hopes alive. Jojo Kemp rushed for 165 yards and 3TDs, Stanley Williams rushed for 140 yards and 2TDs and Sihiem King rushed for 91 yards and a score.
Next Week: MIZ at ARK (Fri), UGA at GT, 1CLEM at SCAR, LOU at UK, 2ALA at AUB, VAN at TENN, 18OM at 21MSST, 13FSU at 12UF, TAMU at LSU
-Michigan State upset Ohio State 17-14 on a last second 41-yard FG by Michael Geiger. Sparty’s defense held the high-powered Buckeyes to just 132 yards. Heisman hopeful Ezekiel Elliott to just 33 yards and 1TD. JT Barrett was just 9/16 for 46 yards and a TD to Jalin Marshall. Connor Cook didn’t play for Michigan State. His backup, Tyler O’Connor threw a TD to Trevon Pendelton and Gerald Holmes rushed for a score. This opens up a lot of playoff possibilities.
-Iowa beat Purdue 40-20 to remain one of the two only undefeated teams in the country. CJ Beathard threw 3TDs for the Hawkeyes and LeShun Daniels Jr. rushed for 2 scores. Purdue cut the lead to 7 early in the 3rd quarter, but Iowa pulled away.
-Michigan went on the road and beat Penn State 28-16. This game went back and forth in the first half, but Michigan pulled away just enough to get the win. Penn State had first and goal from the 6 and the 3 in the 4th quarter, but came away with FGs each time. Michigan returned a kickoff 55 yards to set up their final TD to put the game out of reach. Penn State went 4-and-out on their final drive and Michigan was able to run the final 4 minutes off the clock.
-Northwestern was able to edge Wisconsin 13-7. The Badgers turned the ball over 5 times and the Wildcats turned that into 10 points. Justin Jackson rushed for 139 yards and a TD. Northwestern kicker Jack Mitchell was 2/4 on FGs. Wisconsin had 1st and goal from the 1-yard line at the end of the game, but couldn’t score.
-Rutgers started fast against Army and held on to win 31-21. Paul James rushed for 116 yards and 3TDs for the Scarlet Knights. Chris Carter was 4/6 for 140 yards and a TD and rushed for 111 yards and another score for Army.
-Indiana overcame an early 21-3 deficit to beat Maryland 47-28 for their first Big 10 win of the season. The Hoosiers outscored Maryland 44-7 after the first quarter. Nate Sudfeld threw for 385 yards and 4TDs and also rushed for a score. Brandon Ross rushed for 250 yards and 3TDs (79 yards, 22 yards, 75 yards) for the Terps. Indiana needs one more win to get to 6 wins and an almost 100% guarantee of a bowl game.
-Minnesota used a big second quarter to beat Illinois 32-23. Shannon Brooks rushed for 174 yards and 3 scored for the Golden Gophers. Wes Lunt threw 2TDs and an INT for Illinois. A FG made it a one-point game, but after trading punts, Minnesota scored quickly thanks to a 75-yard run by Brooks. The two-point conversion made it a two-possession game. Illinois was driving, but fumbled on the Minnesota 29-yard line with 16 seconds remaining. Both of these teams need one more win to secure a bowl bid.
Next Week: 4Iowa at NEB (Fri), 8OSU at 10MICH, IND at PUR, MD at RUT, PSU at 5MSU, WIS at MIN, 16NW at ILL
-Stanford clinched the Pac 12 North with their win over California and will face the winner of the USC-UCLA game in the Pac 12 Championship game. Christian McCaffrey had another big game, rushing for 192 yards, catching a TD, and returning a kickoff 98 yards for a score. McCaffrey was named a finalist for the Maxwell Award and the Doak Walker Award.
-UCLA beat Utah 17-9. The Utes will be without star RB Devontae Booker for the rest of the season and that really hurt them in this game. Josh Rosen threw for 220 yards and a TD and Paul Perkins rushed for 98 yards and a score. Utah kicker Andy Phillips was 3/3 on FGs. UCLA will face USC to decide who will face Stanford in the Pac 12 Champ game.
-Oregon’s offense started out hot to beat USC 48-28. Vernon Adams was 20/25 for 407 yards and 6TDs. Royce Freeman rushed for 147 yards. Cody Kessler threw 2TDs and Justin Davis rushed for 141 yards.
-Arizona State won the Territorial Cup over Arizona 52-37. Mike Bercovici threw a pick six and Brandon Dawkins threw 2 pick sixes on back-to-back drive in the 4th quarter. Each QB also threw 2TDs and rushed for another. These two teams combined for more than 1,000 offensive yards. Arizona State is now bowl eligible.
-Washington had no problem going on the road to Oregon State. The Huskies won 52-7 behind Jake Browning’s 4 passing TDs. Washington had the ball for 41:22.
-Washington State won their 8th game of the season by beating Colorado 27-3. Luke Falk was carted off the field after a hard hit. Before leaving, he threw a TD. His backup, Peyton Bender also threw a TD. Gerard Wicks rushed for 123 yards for the Cougars as well.

Mason Rudolph was 27/50 for 430 yards and 3TDs and JW Walsh threw a TD and rushed for a score.

Baylor totaled 700 yards of offense and overcame turning the ball over 3 times.
-Oklahoma escaped a late rally by TCU to win 30-29. Continuing with the unfortunate trend of QBs getting injured, Baker Mayfield left the game but threw 2TDs before suffering a head injury. Samaje Perine rushed for 188 yards and a TD. Sooner kicker Austin Seibert was 3/4 on FGs, giving OU just enough points to win. Tevone Boykin’s backup, Foster Sawyer, started off strong, but finished 1/10 with 3INTs before being replaced by Bram Kohlhausen who threw 2TDs. His pass attempt on the two-point conversion was batted away to seal the OU victory. Aaron Green rushed for 126 yards and a TD for the Horned Frogs. Oklahoma had 24 points off of 4 TCU turnovers.
