South Carolina at Missouri: The Gamecocks looked dead and buried at 17-0 in the 4th quarter. Connor Shaw was the difference in the game, coming in late and leading South Carolina to victory in double overtime. Dan’s disappointed the Tigers slipped up and comments on how terrible it is to lose off a doinked kick. Ty doesn’t think Missouri rebounds.
Texas Tech at Oklahoma: The Sooners take advantage of three Tech turnovers and get a nice day from Blake Bell. Dan says Texas Tech acquitted itself well and Oklahoma keeps itself in the thick of the Big 12 title race with the win.
Texas at TCU: Casey Pachall returns for the Horned Frogs, but their offense still doesn’t look good. Texas does what it needs to, playing field position and being able to beat a team that isn’t as talented. Texas is now 4-0 in conference and controls its own destiny in the Big 12. Ty Remarks that Mack Brown might now have alligator blood because he refuses to die.
Stanford at Oregon State: Tyler Gaffney scores all of Stanford’s points and Kevin Hogan has a dreadful night. In the end Stanford’s style of big dumb, physical football does the job. Dan says Hogan’s ceiling is a B+ quarterback, and while you can do a lot of things with a B+ quarterback, you can’t win a national title.
Miami at Wake Forest: Ty says Miami played bad enough to lose and really couldn’t watch this game. Miami is incredibly reliant on Duke Johnson and overall really inconsistent on offense. Wake Forest left a lot of points on the field.
Duke at Virginia Tech: This was an inefficient offensive performance by both parties, but Duke found a way to win in an unusual way, shutting a team down on offense. The Blue Devils are a bowl eligible and end a long losing streak to ranked teams.
Clemson at Maryland: Clemson looks flat on the road for a while and ends up pulling away to win this one handily. The story of the game for Ty is Maryland’s backdoor cover. Dan is bummed that he can’t believe in Clemson beating up on lesser teams.
Nebraska at Minnesota: Enter David Cobb’s name in with players who have nice days on the ground against Nebraska.
Michigan State at Illinois: The #DriveFor6 is not going so well for Illinois. They allow freshman quarterback Connor Cook to go 15/16 in his first start. Next week’s Michigan State/Michigan game is intriguing.
Northwestern at Iowa: The Wildcats still aren’t dealing with their loss to Ohio State well. Weeks later, still reeling…
Tennessee at Alabama: Alabama crushes hope.
NC State at Florida State: Florida State could’ve won this game by 100. Dan gives love to the Seminoles’ wide receivers.
Oregon at UCLA: Oregon’s defense smothered UCLA’s predictable running game and weren’t challenged through the air, as the Bruins couldn’t throw the ball at all.
Penn State at Penn State: The only thing Ohio State couldn’t do is stop Allen Robinson. Otherwise, the Buckeyes had their way.
Baylor at Kansas: Baylor has no trouble dispatching Kansas. The Bears hit the meat of their schedule over the next few weeks.
Florida Atlantic at Auburn
Oklahoma State at Iowa State
UConn at UCF
Notre Dame at Air Force
Utah at USC
