Ty and Dan recap a historic weekend of college football upsets, an epic triumph for the state of Mississippi, upheaval in the Big 12, late night heroics in the Pac-12, a losing effort for the record books, and much more. Plus, an extended Reverbs and an awkwardly-timed photo shoot.
Week 6 Recap (10/5)
(9:50 min.) — Arizona 31, Oregon 24: Dan skewers the Ducks’ coaching staff for this dud. However, the offensive line was also horrible for the second game in a row. Anu Solomon impressed Dan, though, as he looked pretty good in the upset. Oregon was out-classed in every phase of the game.
(33:45) — Notre Dame 17, Stanford 14: Ty said this game may have been the worst of the day, outside of the tire fire that was Florida and Tennessee. Ty takes back all of the praises he’s ever given to Stanford’s Kevin Hogan. Ty said both teams wants to be a power running team, but neither can do it. The Cardinal defense was great — except for the last play of the game.
(29:40) — Utah 30, UCLA 28: Dan says he thinks this loss is more than just a trap-game spot for UCLA. Utah is a strong team, and UCLA could not overcome its struggles. UCLA could not protect Brett Hundley at all. Utah was able to run the ball well enough against a stout UCLA front-7.
(48:45) — Arizona State 38, USC 34: A great back-and-forth game with very little defense, but backup Mike Bercovici pulls the Sun Devils through with the win on a Hail Mary. USC’s defense looked totally lost on how to defend the Hail Mary.
(15:15) — Ole Miss 23, Alabama 17: Dr. Bo delivers!, Ty said. The Rebels hung around, didn’t make big mistakes and then won in the end. Dan said Bo Wallace was better than Blake Sims, and that Ole Miss out-played the Tide in every phase of the game. Does anybody have updates on where the goalposts may be?
(19:00) — Mississippi State 48, Texas A&M 31: Ty believes Mississippi State may be the most impressive team in the country so far. Dan says perhaps Auburn is on its level, but no team has definitely looked better. Dak Prescott looked Heisman-worthy for the Bulldogs in the demolition of the Aggies. Dan is taking another look at Texas A&M as a team after this blowout loss. The defense is still pretty bad.
(22:45) — Auburn 41, LSU 7: This was a good ole’ fashioned boatracing, Ty says. Brandon Harris did not help an anemic LSU offense, which went 0 for 13 on third downs. Nick Marshall was fantastic again, and Cameron Artis-Payne was brilliant, as well, for Auburn. Dan is surprised to see LSU have such a down year, which for it is usually 9-3.
(25:45) — TCU 37, Oklahoma 33: Ty believes this may be the best game of a historic day in college football. Ty attributes the loss to “Big-Game Bob,” while Dan gives more credit to a TCU defense that he believes was just that good for that day. The difference was Trevor Knight struggled to punish the TCU defense.
(39:45) — Michigan State 27, Nebraska 22: Ty said the Spartans dominated for three and a half quarters before the Huskers came back for the back-door cover. Dan claims Michigan State is 75 percent of a good team, pointing out the Spartans have scored a grand total of 0 points in fourth quarters against Nebraska and Oregon.
(47:45) — Utah State 35, BYU 20: Taysom Hill suffers a broken leg, and the Cougars fall. Both Dan and Ty were disappointed they wouldn’t be able to watch Hill for the rest of the season.
