(2:30) — Auburn 35, Ole Miss 31: Dan discusses the horrible way in Ole Miss lost this game (the most sudden end since this) and that this was a high-level game, with Ole Miss’ defense looking not quite as good as they had earlier in the season, but Auburn’s offense is really rolling. Ryan says Ole Miss probably should have won this game, but Auburn does what it always seems to do — find a way to win.
(22:50) — Florida 38, Georgia 20: Ryan thinks that the Florida team is dangerous just because they can play good defense. The issue was always awful on offense. But against Georgia on Saturday, their running game just overwhelmed the Dawgs. The game shows more about Georgia than Florida, Ryan says.
(29:25) — Mississippi State 17, Arkansas 10: Dak Prescott was sloppier than usual, Dan says, and that led to the Bulldogs only scoring 17 points against Arkansas. Combined with last week’s escape over Kentucky, and Mississippi State has not looked like a top-ranked team. Ryan is now really worried about Mississippi State at Alabama in two weeks.
(2:20) — TCU 31, West Virginia 30: Trevone Boykin looks like the QB of old, and not the Heisman contender he looked like to begin this season, Dan says. And TCU needed every break that West Virginia gave them to win by one point. Ryan liked how TCU’s defense played well enough to give its struggling offense a chance to win it in the end.
(11:40) — Florida State 42, Louisville 31: Dan notes that the Seminoles looked really bad for about two quarters, with both the defense and offense really struggling. However, they turned it around in the second half and, combined with a Louisville squad that did not take advantage of several opportunities, was enough to win. Ryan points out that three freshmen really stood out for Florida State, in Dalvin Cook, Travis Rudolph and Ermon Lane.
(16:15) — Oregon 45, Stanford 16: The difference in this win over the last two years is Marcus Mariota’s health, Day says, and the Ducks had the advantage of Shayne Skov, Trent Murphy and Derek Mason no longer being at Stanford. Mariota actually missed some throws, and Oregon could still move the ball well. Ryan notes that Stanford’s season is simple — it loses to good teams, and beats bad teams.
(20:00) — Arizona State 19, Utah 16: Two good defenses battled into overtime, and the Sun Devils hang on after Utah had been winning all of its earlier close games, Dan says. Ryan is still note sure how good Arizona State may be given its up-and-down season. Both Dan and Ryan are looking forward to seeing the Devils against Notre Dame.
(35:20) — UCLA 17, Arizona 7: UCLA’s talented but underperforming defense finally came to life and shut out the Wildcats’ offense. Ryan was impressed with how good the UCLA defense looked, but was still very underwhelmed by the Bruins’ offense, which he thinks makes them very limited in how good they can be.
(25:30) — Notre Dame 49, Navy 39: Dan is not too worried about Notre Dame’s seemingly poor effort with the triple option Navy team. However, he does thinks it shows that Notre Dame is not quite a top-10 team. Ryan sort of disagrees, saying the Irish should be ranked about at 8 or 9 right now.
